Brent Johnson
Chase International
About Brent

Brent Johnson has been the #1 top producing Realtor in South Lake Tahoe since 2014 and was awarded the Best of Tahoe's "Realtor of the Year" in 2017. Brent doubled his nearest competitor in 2019 with 94 homes sold and over $56,000,000 in total volume sold. In 2018, he had 110 sales and over $59,000,000 in volume sold! This is over double the volume and triple the units sold as his nearest competitor! Being born and raised in South Lake Tahoe and having a background as a General Contractor has enabled Brent to be the most successful and one of the most knowledgeable Realtors in Lake Tahoe. I began my career in the building industry as a General Contractor. In 1999 I started a development company and began building "Spec Houses". After five years of amazing success in the development industry, I decided to shift gears and become a Real Estate Agent in 2004. I believe that starting out my career in the building and development industry has been the key to my success as a Real Estate Agent. I not only understand the building process, but the ins and outs of dealing with the local regulatory agencies. Specializing in Listings as well as working with Buyers for New Construction, Land Sales, Existing Home Sales, Fixer Uppers, and View Properties, I think of myself as a well rounded Real Estate Agent. I believe in working harder than anyone else in the business, and my knowledge, dedication, and hard work has allowed me to be the top producing agent for the last 6 years! South Lake Tahoe is my home and where I am fortunate to raise my three beautiful daughters Haley, Ashley, and Kayla. I enjoy working with both my buyers and sellers and have enjoyed meeting a lot of new people and making great new friends along the way! My full time assistant Janine Haden does an amazing job coordinating the escrow process, assisting with paperwork, and keeping our clients informed every step of the way. Our team goal is to to the extra mile and to make the home buying and home selling process as seamless and as enjoyable as possible!

Chris and Brooke Hernandez
Compass, Lake Tahoe
About Chris

For Chris and Brooke Hernandez, Tahoe has always been a way of life. Two lifelong locals who spent childhood winters on the slopes, you’d be hard pressed to find another team who knows Lake Tahoe quite like these two. A dynamic husband and wife duo with over three decades of combined experience, Chris and Brooke love helping others put down roots in the beloved community they call home. Bolstered by domestic and international connections alike, Chris was a member of the US Ski Team and skied on the World Cup before settling in Tahoe and earning his Broker’s license. Similarly, Brooke earned a bachelor’s degree from Sonoma State, but it wasn’t long before she was drawn back to Lake Tahoe by the pull of summers on the beach and winters in the mountains. Propelled by a passion for sharing the Tahoe way of life, the duo partnered in 2006 and never looked back. It’s no surprise that Chris and Brooke were tapped as founding members to take the helm at Compass East Shore, Nevada. Praised for their unmatched experience, unrivaled local insight, and unquestionably tenacious work ethic, the duo works diligently to deliver the ultimate client experience. Whether lakefront property or a second home at the Lake, Team Hernandez brings the same enthusiasm, accessibility, and transparency. Residing in the Zephyr Cove area with their two amazing daughters, Chris and Brooke feel infinitely lucky to live where the rest of the world vacations. When they’re not hard at work, you’ll find them enjoying all Tahoe has to offer….. skiing, boating, golfing, mountain biking, hiking… they know all the hidden gems. At the end of the day, no one knows your neighborhood like these two do. Trust Chris and Brooke to guide you home.

Omar Galindo
Century 21 Real Estate Alliance
About Omar

I was born and raised in Redwood City. I am a current resident of the North Fair Oaks community of Menlo Park where I am raising my family. Besides real estate and family, my other passion is sports and I often find myself volunteering and or supporting youth sports events. Working as a real estate agent and helping people realize the American dream has become my passion since 2003. I have developed a deep understanding of the different communities that make up the wonderful Peninsula. This knowledge is a valuable resource that I am proud to offer my clients. During the 2008 “Real Estate Bubble” I was one of the very few agents in the Bay Area that became a specialist in negotiating Short Sales. It required a great deal of time and patience to learn the way banks work but my number one focus during this time was helping my clients avoid foreclosure. I helped hundreds of families settle debt and avoid foreclosure. I used unconventional methods to find bank contacts with top management authority. Having direct access to people with the authority to approve short sales and postpone foreclosures and was a huge benefit to my clients. I have helped hundreds of people buy and sell and no transaction has ever been the same. I love the challenges and often find myself negotiating some difficult deals. Buying or selling Real Estate is, for most people one of the most important investments of their life and my number one priority is to make this process effortless. I will work diligently to understand your goals and expectations and provide you with the most accurate information to your questions or concerns. If you are a seller, I will provide you with a full assessment of your home and give you access to my trusted and professional list of designers and contractors to help prepare your home for the market. You will be amazed at how small changes can have a big impact on maximizing your profits. If you are a buyer, my knowledge of the area is not the only valuable resource I can offer you. My experience working with many investors and contractors have given the opportunity to learn about the construction and building process. With this knowledge, I make sure my clients are well informed of any needed repairs and can rest assurance they will be getting the best property for the price. We have seen many changes in the Real Estate market these past 16 years. As a real estate agent, I make it my priority to stay informed with current laws and market changes. My clients deserve the best service and experience and that is my number one commitment to you. Thank you for visiting my profile. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you and helping you, your friends or family with any of your Real Estate needs.
