    Paul Smith, who has been actively engaged in the Lake Tahoe real estate market since 1991, has recently expanded his area of expertise to the Nevada City/Grass Valley area.

    His love for the foothills began when he flew over the area while taking aviation lessons at Nevada County Airport. Catching an aerial view of the lush landscape sparked an interest to relocate to the area, and since 2001, he has been a proud homeowner in the foothills. After purchasing multiple homes, he found the residence of his dreams and is now a full-time Nevada City resident, where he and his wife indulge in their passion for the outdoor lifestyle. He prides himself on being able to introduce his clients to this outdoorsman's paradise. Prior to moving to Grass Valley, Paul has been actively engaged in the Lake Tahoe real estate market since 1991 and is part of a long family tradition of realtors. He raised three children in Tahoe and continues to be an active member of the community. Paul offers a wealth of knowledge about the Truckee-Tahoe area and the abundance of activities the area has to offer. His passion for mountain sports and fishing, as well as his continued love of aviation, has fueled his enthusiasm for Tahoe and connecting home buyers with the exciting lifestyle that the region offers.

    Paul's professional industry involvement includes membership in the Northern California Council of Residential Specialists; Global Luxury Home Specialist, and a former director of the Tahoe Sierra MLS. Additionally, Paul holds a New Construction Certification. Paul's deep involvement in the regional market keeps him abreast of the many changes as the real estate industry continues to evolve. He is known for his ability to get properties sold because he knows what works and has been immersed in the critical evolution of the Truckee-Tahoe/NevadaCity-Grass Valley area markets. Paul looks forward to assisting his clients in buying and selling and continuing to share his expertise in both the Nevada City/Grass Valley and Truckee/Tahoe markets.

    Matt gave Paul 5 stars out of 5
    I was very fortunate to be referred to Paul. I was looking for a 2nd home and was not familiar with the Nevada City/Gold Country area. After looking at a dozen properties we were able to locate a home that was in my desired area, well within my budget, met all my needs for a vacation retreat. Even during the transaction when a few minor issues came to light, Paul jumped in and assessed the situation to ensure I was in the loop and satisfied. I've purchased 5 homes in 10 years, and this transaction was the most confident, simple and easy ones of my real estate experience. Thank you, Paul, for welcoming me home to Nevada City!

    My wife and I were first time buyers. We knew very little about buying a house. A friend of ours referred us to Paul and it couldn't have worked out better. Paul was very patient and listened to what we wanted and needed. Paul went the extra mile for us and we love our home!

    We loved working with Paul ! He is incredibly professional and patient. It took us several months of looking (and a corona virus quarantine) to find the perfect house. Paul was always so helpful without any pressure. He really understood exactly what we were looking for and he did a great job helping us to find it. We couldn't be happier.

    The first thing I was looking for in a Realtor was for someone who could represent my interests, honesty and handled themselves professionally. Paul was certainly that person, his advise was sound throughout the entire process with answering my questions and addressing concerns. He communicated often with updates and showings which lead to positive results. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to family or friends for any home or property purchase !!

    I am a Realtor in another market, and have worked with Paul both for my own purchases, as well as referring my clients to him. Paul is incredibly attentive and proactive and communicates very well throughout the process. He has an incredible attention to detail and follow up.

    5 Mile House on Highway 20 Re-Opens

    The 5 Mile House location has re-opened as the Ol' Republic Brewery Roadhouse. I have eaten there quite a few times and have been very pleased every time. They have various brews to choose from and fresh baked bread!Here is a sample of their menu which changes often. It is quickly becoming a locals favorite.

    Scotts Flat Bike Ride Trail

    My wife and I took a bike ride down the Scotts Flat trail this week. As always; it was great to be out there. There were workers improving the trail, which made for a more exciting ride. The trail runs along the placid bays and ends at the dam. I can't wait to get back out there. Have you ridden down the path lately, I would love to hear about it.
