Val VidegainI was born and raised in California. Lucky for me, natural beauty and outdoor adventure have never been far from home. Mountain biking and rock climbing have been favorite pastimes for over 20 years, but it was my discovery of river guiding that changed my life. It took me throughout the Sierras, down the Grand Canyon, and defined most of my waking moments every summer for years. It was a beautiful thing. And then one day a friend asked, “So, what do you do in the winter?”

That’s when it hit me: I needed to find a place where I could have just as much fun and adventure in the winter as I could in the summer. It didn’t take long for me to land in Truckee, and to realize I had found the place I would call home. That was 20 years ago!

Today, I lead a wonderful life in North Lake Tahoe with my wife Erin, twin sons, Granite, River, and daughter Violet. I chose a career in real estate just so I could help others find this same quality of life, and the job has never let me down. In fact, some days are so good I have to pinch myself.

What’s even more exciting is that my passion for my work pays off in happy, satisfied clients. I am proud to have been named the Best Realtor for Truckee in 2007, 2008 and 2009 by Sierra Sun readers, with over $20 million in successful sales each year for my clients in the last 4 years.

So, if you are looking for a dedicated real estate professional who loves where they live and what they do, and has expertise and integrity you can count on, I hope you will contact me by email or give me a call at (530) 412-1671. You can trust that when I say I look forward to hearing from you, I really mean it.
