Best real estate agent we have ever worked with, hands down, no question. If you are even curious about property in the South Lake Tahoe area, contact Brandon. He has my respect and appreciation for helping my family find the perfect vacation cabin for us. We weren't sure if we wanted a condo, timeshare, small vacation home, or larger vacation rental. And even though we lived a couple hours away, Brandon made the process painless... Actually, it was a pleasure. He handles multi-million dollar properties down through the smallest homes on the market (ours was definitely on the smaller side) and we genuinely felt like his most important customer. He knows this area inside and out. He has been in many of the homes from the previous time they were sold. He shares honest feedback on neighborhoods and what to avoid. And he knows most of the other agents in the area, as well as the market overall, which was a huge help in us getting a property for significantly below it's listed price. You won't be disappointed. Listen to him carefully and make a new friend in Tahoe. Less ... More

We worked with Brandon when buying our vacation home in South Lake Tahoe. Throughout the process and after, it has been a pleasure working with him. His knowledge of the area is great - he took the time to drive us through each neighborhood explaining the pros and cons of each area. Overall the process was painless (even though our transaction was on a foreclosed home). In addition to helping us through the home buying process, Brandon has remained engaged with us even afterwards by helping us with referrals for local services etc. Btw, his referrals are top-notch! We highly recommend Brandon for your next home transaction! Less ... More

Brandon Yee diligently studies economic and finance conditions that can affect a market, and that knowledge, when combined with deep local market sense, allowed him to come up with an initial offering price that, although at the high end of comparable prices, was selling into an accelerating market. His strategy worked perfectly. The first offer was in process before the sign could be put up on the property. He developed a strategy to accept additional offers, which resulted in a very short bidding war, and was successful in selling the property at about 15% above the previous market comps. The property was under contract within a week of listing and closed without delay, discussion, or further negotiation. Less ... More

I worked with Brandon Yee on the purchase of my condo in South Lake Tahoe in January 2014. Brandon is very knowledgeable and great to work with. I didn?t have a lot of flexibility when I was looking and primarily had to view homes during the weekend. Brandon was always available to show me the properties that I was interested in. In one case, he even went to the property and took a video to save me the drive up from the Bay Area. My transaction ended up being more complex than what I anticipated, Brandon helped me every step of the way and ensured that my needs were met. I would definitely recommend the Yee team if you are looking to buy in the South Lake Tahoe area. I plan to work with Brandon when we upgrade our condo in the next few years. Less ... More

I am from SF bay area and I had some interests a year ago in buying a vacation home in south lake tahoe. I searched on Yelp to find Brandon Yee. Brandon is a very reliable and intuitive real estate broke. After he got in touch with me and figured out what type of property I was looking for, he swiftly sent me a list of properties that very closely matched to my requirements. Within a few weeks, I was looking at the properties in Tahoe with him. I was unsure about the intended usage of the property, but Brandon was patient and insightful enough to help me figure out how I should use it, therefore narrowing down the neighborhoods and the size of the properties. He is very well-versed in the local economy and trends, which was helpful to me in the search for the perfect vacation home to rent. Although I did not end up purchasing home due to financial considerations, I'd definitely use him again when I am ready. Less ... More

We met with 3 realtors prior to meeting Brandon and Grace. After meeting with them, I was confident that we had an experienced hardworking team on our side. I also knew they were nice people who we could easily get along with. Brandon offered good insight that made us understand that the particular house we were buying was in fact a good investment. He's cool and calm during negotiations and manages both sides well and with integrity. He's also a super hard worker which I admire. Not many realtors are willing to talk with their clients at 2am without hesitation, complaint, or trying to get you off the phone. He did this in order to make sure I had all of the information and the best chance of getting the deal I wanted. When some of our negotiations or research regarding the property got complex, difficult, and unconventional, he often told me he was enjoying the experience! He's creative and smart and knows a lot about the various building/land rules and regulations inherent and important in the Tahoe Basin. We discovered that he and his team are well known in South Lake Tahoe likely because they are very active realtors. If you are lucky enough to be their client, I'm confident you will have similar positive experiences. Less ... More

I really enjoyed working with Brandon, who is very knowledgeable of the Tahoe area. He takes the time out to understand our criteria and what we're looking for. The one attribute that I truly valued when it comes to real estate transactions is responsiveness. Brandon is one of the most responsive agents I have ever worked with. Even if it's late in the day or early evening, he takes the time out to return my calls and answer questions I have. It he can't get me an answer right away, he usually let me know he will look into it and get back to me, which he does. Less ... More

We were first time buyers in the South Tahoe area and Brandon gave us a extensive tour of the area. He showed us multiple listings in different areas and went above and beyond with his service and hospitality. He is honest and trustworthy. Brandon even provided us a video clip of the property because he weren't able to view it when it was first listed. The footage was very helpful and was very thorough. He is very resourceful and knowledge in this industry. Even though we didn't purchase a property through him, I would highly recommend giving him a chance. You won't be disappointed. Less ... More

Brandon made time for me on short notice to show me homes in South Lake Tahoe. Then Brandon showed me a few other homes that I was likely to be interested. He had detailed knowledge about homes as well as honest opinions. It turned out that I wound up buying a home out of area. On top of being patient and respectful Brandon allowed me to be quickly informed and narrow down my search. I recommend Brandon for any home search in South Lake Tahoe.

He was very thorough in his explanation in what to look for when buying land and also pointed out the restrictions in developing in South Lake Tahoe.

Brandon was an incredible resource for me. I had very little knowledge and experience in South Lake Tahoe and Brandon spent a lot of time introducing me to the neighborhoods and finding the right neighborhood for my needs. He is well connected in the area which made the inspection process easy. Additionally, he has been a valuable resource even after closing - helping me find snow removal and decorator services.

This is our third house and we've been through a lot of Realtors but Brandon and Grace are the best. Brandon is highly knowledgeable of the Tahoe area and gave plenty of good advice. When we couldn't go up to Tahoe to look at some of the houses, Brandon and Grace prepared a video walk through of the houses we wanted to see. They did go above and beyond for us. We were ecstatic when we finally closed.

Brandon was very patient showing us around and familiarizing us with the Tahoe area. We spent many hours with him gaining lots of insight as we went. When we found the house we wanted he was very good and fast with the detail work. We found out later just how right he was about our house (and price) to be very good. Brandon continues to be a great resource for me even now that over a year has gone by since our purchase. Carl Butler

They were essential for the business to happen, mainly because I do not live in the United States. They were my negotiators, and my eyes upon inspection of the property. During the process of buying the house, as doubts arose, they explained me step buy step. When I was hesitant because I was not going to be present at the house inspection, they took photographs and sent me,and after that, I was able to decide and close the deal. After the deal closed, they guided me with everything and still helped me to transfer the energy and the gas bills to my name. As I have not been able to travel and the cold is coming, they were careful to make sure that the heating was on, in fact, is a group that provides full assistance to their clients.

Brandon was phenomenal to work with from start to finish. His knowledge of South Lake Tahoe is unparalleled and he gave us honest pros and cons regardless of the prices of the properties we looked at. He also knows the vacation rental market well and was able to recommend which neighborhoods and houses would make excellent vacation rentals. He also worked with a local property manager to get estimated nightly prices and nights rented per year for the houses we were interested in. Beyond his local expertise, he's just a cool guy so it's fun to tour houses with him and work with him on drawing up an offer. We definitely made the right choice by picking Brandon as our agent and I'd highly recommend him without hesitation to anyone buying or selling in Lake Tahoe. Less ... More
