"Working with Dave was great. I am a novice in real estate, I know very little about the process, timeline, market, and etiquette involved with both buying and selling a property. Dave patiently explained every step, kept me explicitly informed, and was always available not only to take my calls, but also to meet and show me a house I liked, often with little notice. Dave is up beat, positive, and patient both with his clients and the escrow process. He offers knowledgeable advice about what aspects of a property are going to help it keep it's value, or what he has concerns about. I also found him to be honest, ethical and objective in decision making processes. Working with Dave was an informative well guided experience."

My wife and I moved to Truckee from Austrailia a few years ago. We contacted Dave to see if he would help us find our new home in Truckee. Dave has been a Truckee local for many years and that gave us a lot of confidence in his advise as he knew exactly the right house design to look for. Coming from Austrailia we had no idea about roof lines and driveway considerations and how important these things are in the mountains. Dave was great to work with. We would regularly receive emails from him with new listings, and he would respond to our emails almost instantly. It took us quite a while to find the right house, but with Dave’s help and guidance we found the right one! He was professional, honest and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Dave as a Realtor if you are looking for property in Truckee/Tahoe.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Dave on two acquisitions in Tahoe Donner. He is extremely capable and flexible. He’s shown patience and great knowledge in helping us with any concerns we’ve had during the processes. Dave’s familiarity with the Tahoe area is a bonus. We’ve enjoyed Dave’s expertise on the slopes and in the neighborhoods of the area; we wouldn’t work with anyone else.

Dave..I don't know how you did it, but you found me the absolutely perfect house...at the perfect price! I so appreciate your knowledge of the Tahoe Donner housing market and your honest and open communication. Thank you for shielding me from the emotional drama that so often comes with the purchase of a home. Purchasing my home
with you was a delight!
"My husband and I are from the Bay Area and were referred to Dave Donnelly as a reliable realtor in the Truckee area. Dave proved to be a full service agent that helped us find a vacation home in Tahoe Donner. Dave educated us about micro-climates in Tahoe and the effects on the home you purchase, the pros and cons off different building designs and always looked out for our best interests. Dave offered to take video of properties of interest, coordinated all of the moving parts associated with the buying process and has continued to be a trusted point of contact for us local to our home away from home. We trusted that Dave, the Northwoods Group and TDHomes.com would support us through this journey and we would happily recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Truckee area."
"Selling a house is never easy. Selling a second home 200+ miles away is really hard - multiple offers, inspections, escrow, permits, small fixes, details, details, details.
With the professional help of Dave Donnelly we successfully sold our house above listing. Dave took his own professional photos to show our house online, held numerous open houses, and represented us professionally during the entire selling process.
Our home is part of a home owners association and in an attempt to bring older homes to code, all houses on the market are subject to inspection by the home owners association. During this process, there were several things that needed to be brought through a permitting process, update paperwork, and make some minor fixes around the house. We could not have accomplished all of this without the help of Dave. He spent countless hours meeting contractors at the house on our behalf and still after the close of escrow representing us in a meeting at the architectural standards office.
This is our second successful transaction with Dave and would recommend him highly."
Dave is great! When the going gets tough it is nice to have someone in your corner that is experienced, professional, and without question has your best interests as a priority.
I highly recommend Dave as a realtor in the Tahoe Donner area. He was very patient, as it took me several years to make a decision. He kept me up to date and when the time came for me to buy, he was very responsive and provided an excellent overview of the area and great recommendations. During the offer and close, he was on top of everything and made it easy. He also was very willing to help with many other recommendations as I was new to the area. Dave's a great realtor.
We have worked with Dave for many years. Always professional, he has made himself available long after the purchase of our Truckee home. He knows the region extremely well, and provides many extra bonus services you would not normally expect to enjoy. He cares about making us happy and successful in our purchase. I would recommend him for anyone buying or selling in this area.
