Jennifer has been vacationing in Lake Tahoe for over 32 years. Her grandparents once owned a condo in Zephyr Cove and her mother always told Jennifer that she kicked herself for not buying it from them when she had the chance. Each summer, Jennifer's mother would bring home a Tahoe real estate magazine, but she never pursued her dream. Jennifer and Brett were married and honeymooned in Lake Tahoe in July 2008. Tahoe is forever a special place for Jennifer's family. In December 2008, Jennifer's mother died unexpectedly. Jennifer's mother was generous in life and in death, and left an inheritance to Jennifer and Brett that was enough for a down payment on a house in Lake Tahoe. By tears, blood and the sweat of their brow, Jennifer and Brett remodeled this Zephyr Cove home with the dream of renting it to people who will visit Tahoe and create rich memories with their friends and family, just as they have done.
A Bay Area native, Jennifer has been vacationing in Tahoe since she was four years old. Some of her fondest family memories occurred in Lake Tahoe, which included her and Brett's wedding on South Shore. Her grandparents once owned a home in Zephyr Cove, which made this specific area of Tahoe even more special for her. Brett and Jennifer hope that families and groups of friends will enjoy their home and build wonderful memories of their own.
