August 9, 2022 Good Morning Truckee: Sustaining the Truckee-Tahoe Vibe + Real Estate and Mortgage Market Trends

July 25, 2022

The August 9th Good Morning Truckee will feature a presentation by Heidi Hill Drum, CEO of the Tahoe Prosperity Center. Heidi will talk about the recent opinion poll, Envision Tahoe Community Survey that shows how unified our communities are in what we love about our region, what we fear, and what non-negotiable things we must confront to keep Truckee-Tahoe a place where families can live, work, connect, and thrive. The Envision Tahoe effort culminated in the “Prosperity Playbook.” The Playbook lays out a vision for the economy our community desires to have in the future: diversified, resilient, and inclusive.

Also talking that morning will be Jeff Brown, Broker/Owner of Tahoe Mountain Realty. Jeff will discuss real estate trends of the past few years and where we are today including current supply, buying activity, the influx of residents due to remote work, and higher use of second homes.

Joining Jeff Brown will be Ephraim Schwartz, Partner and Mortgage Consultant with O’Dette Mortgage Group. Ephraim will discuss how current economic events are impacting the mortgage market including: debunking myths of Fed Rate hike impact on mortgages; inflation and the future of mortgage rates; comparing the mortgage market’s role in the Great Recession (2008-2011) vs. today. 

The event is held at Truckee Town Hall upstairs in the Council Chambers from 7:00-8:30 am. The Truckee Chamber encourages in-person attendance to connect with other community members – it is one of the best networking opportunities around.  Join in person and have a chance to win a $50 Sustainable Truckee gift card accepted at over 45 Truckee businesses! It is also available for online viewing through Zoom, livestream at or on Suddenlink Channel 18. All sessions are recorded and available for viewing at a later date.
