Your Tahoe Home 


To Lake Tahoe

Thank you for taking a moment to consider the advantages of working together. Given that I’m licensed to sell real estate in California and Nevada, we’ll consider influential factors that are unique to the real estate market of the Tahoe Basin in its entirety.

Since 1999 the four areas in which I have primarily been working are Tahoe’s West Shore (Sunnyside, Homewood, Meeks Bay), North Shore (Tahoe City, Agate Bay, and Kings Beach), on Tahoe’s Nevada side (Incline Village, Glenbrook, and Zephyr Cove), and our nearby ski communities (Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Northstar).

Along with my professional experience, I’ve had family live and work throughout Lake Tahoe for a couple of generations. Through them, I’ve come to know and love it well.



“When I moved to Lake Tahoe in 1998, it was the fulfillment of a dream. I simply love it here and delight in helping my clients make the most of their real estate opportunities in such a remarkable part of the world.”

Here’s a sampling of why more and more people turn to Yvette Shipman
for all of their Lake Tahoe real estate needs:

  • A wealth of local knowledge as a second-generation Lake Tahoe Real Estate Professional.
  • Outstanding listening skills that allow her to decipher what’s said: “between the lines.”
  • A genuine love for teaching and patiently guiding her clients to success.
  • Effective negotiation skills having grown up in the industry.
  • Thorough knowledge of 1031 exchanges to benefit investors.
  • A lifelong passion for the area.
  • A past recipient of the REALTOR® of the Year award, Tahoe Sierra Board of REALTORS®.
  • A determined commitment to achieving her client’s goals.
  • A friendly, down-to-earth personality that makes her a joy to work with.

I have done three transactions with Yvette at Tahoe – two purchases and one sale. Each time the process moved smoothly and quickly, resulting in the outcome I wanted.

Yvette has been living and working at Tahoe for most of her life. She knows all the neighborhoods and can introduce you to wonderful areas you may not have been aware of and will love!

Seller and Buyer

Special thanks need to be given to your dedication and consummate wisdom in peeling back the onion of Incline. With so many homes on the market and extraordinary economic forces all coming into play, our choices might have appeared hopelessly open-ended had you not been as prepared each time we met. I found your depth of knowledge of the area invaluable, but I was really impressed with the preparation or “homework” you had completed that saved us from wasting time or spending our money unwisely.
