David VOGT

“The best properties are rarely for sale. 

The best employees are rarely job hunting. 

The best clients are rarely shopping.

The best option is usually off the market. Most people think this means you can’t have it. What it really means is you have to go find it and sell yourself.”

~ James Clear

More About David

The perfect agent for even the most discerning client, David is uniquely well qualified to handle any type of real estate transaction. His three decades of practicing law allow him to adroitly handle the finer details of most business transactions, and his years of experience as a Nevada and California real estate broker provide him with the practical knowledge of buying and selling real estate. With his extensive experience in the private sector, from business owner and restaurateur, to venture capital investments and international M&A work, David’s clients know they are receiving the finest care possible.

David’s experience is diverse: a published author, he has represented dozens of companies, litigated the largest civil matter in Los Angeles County history, identified and recovered paintings looted during WWII, and currently provides legal advice to select, privately held businesses, from startup to $250M in valuation. As a 3rd generation Californian he has enjoyed the coastline from Malibu to Coronado, recently lived in Majorca, Spain, and now appreciates the transcendent Tahoe lifestyle, whether experienced from his snowboard, a backcountry campsite, or the cockpit of his plane.

With his unique background, David is attuned to the business and personal needs of discerning clients.  Regardless of where, if your “Want” list includes a mountain retreat, a family home or ranch, a 1031 exchange, your personal island, or an investment property, he has the ability to make virtually any transaction appear seamless.  A practiced listener, David prefers a clear, warm, personal relationship with his clients that will be much appreciated, and long remembered.

When not busy working, David enjoys travel, golf, flying, hiking with his Golden Retriever, surfing, snowboarding, acting, yoga, art, and new technologies.

Ryan Smith is a Real Estate Agent with Tahoe Investment Properties in Lake Tahoe. Ryan feels connected and energized by the relationships he creates; ultimately working to help others achieve financial freedom through real estate investing.

Ryan’s childhood visits to family in Tahoe, inspired the hope that he would one day have the chance to live there.

More About Ryan

After a few college years in Bozeman, MT; Ryan pressed pause on school to follow his dream of living in Tahoe. Typical for locals, Ryan worked three jobs to afford to live there. He landed a job on the opening team for Coldwater Brewery, worked Heavenly as a Guest Relations specialist, and eventually furthered his business career with U.S. Bank as a Universal Banker.

“A local’s life in Tahoe isn’t easy. Most of my friends are working 2 or 3 jobs, living off tips and seasonal business. Not many people understand the sacrifices locals make to live here. For me, finishing my degree and pursuing real estate is a way I can give back. How can I take what I’ve learned and make it easy for someone else who’s working hard on their own path?”

During his time at U.S. Bank, Ryan met his Broker, David Vogt. David and Ryan began working together on projects, some of which involved marketing material and building websites, others were worldwide non-profit organizations. Ryan and David remained friends throughout the next three years when Ryan left the Lake to finish his college degree.

Ryan pursued a Bachelors in Business with a focus on Entrepreneurship, from California State University of Monterey Bay. While Ryan was finishing college, he worked his way through the Apple Store in Monterey. Beginning in sales, working through every aspect of the Genius Bar, Ryan eventually became the store’s Business Pro. As Business Pro, Ryan leveraged Apple technology to generate and develop business to business relationships while leading trainings for his customers and team.

“I loved my time at Apple and will always be grateful for my experience there. I’m an entrepreneur at heart, and I wanted more than a career. I’m fascinated by the wealth real estate generates and understanding investment properties has opened my eyes to the possibilities of true financial freedom. That’s my aspiration, and I hope to help anyone who wants that same freedom.”

Ryan left Apple after college to pursue a life of financial freedom back in Tahoe. Joining broker, David Vogt at Tahoe Investment Properties, Ryan focuses on Condo, Multifamily, and Investment Properties. Ryan leverages his technological skills and business knowledge to elevate his marketing capabilities through social media.

“Technology is changing the real estate market. Both consumer and agent are becoming more connected through apps, and mega-companies like Zillow. My time with Apple, and passion for making life easy has taught me to use technology -and never to depend on it. Relationships are what matter to me. People and their dreams -that’s why I work hard. I wouldn’t be where I am without those who’ve helped me. My focus will always be local.”

When Ryan’s not focused on Real Estate, he’s outside snowboarding, hiking, or mountain biking with his family. Ryan’s love for personal development keeps him busy with side projects, he sometimes consults people/businesses on strategy and purpose driven lifestyles. Ryan’s followed his dream, and he’s passionate to help others follow theirs. He believes anyone can generate cash flow through real estate, and his expertise can guide anyone from a first-time investor, to an established real estate investor.

Thirty years ago, I visited Lake Tahoe for a weekend ski trip. I’m still here.

Today, my roots here go deep and I would not have it any other way. Sure, life up in the mountains has its challenges but the opportunities are boundless. The stunning vistas and abundant fresh air have a soothing effect on the soul. This helps put life in perspective.

More About Mike

I had a career all planned out in Los Angeles, but my plan changed. Tahoe has a way of doing that to long term plans. My wife, Leslie, and I met here twenty-six years ago. She, like me, and so many others, experienced Tahoe, and the lifestyle it affords; we never looked back.

Tahoe is a wonderful place to raise a family. We raised our son here, Emery Michael Mulligan. Now that he’s an adult, he likes to remind us of what an awesome place it was to grow up in Tahoe. He’s right. Leslie is a talented photographer and Emery is a filmmaker. Guess Tahoe brings out the creative juices.

I began my Real Estate career in 1999, and I have experienced a lot of change over the years; trends, styles, technology, challenging economies, high rates, hard to get loans, recessions, low inventory, too much inventory. You could say I’m experienced. It’s a tough business and there’s always something new. Maybe that’s why I love it.

I’m licensed in both California and Nevada, and my territory is large. It includes a wide variety of investment opportunities from Lakefront Estates, Ranches, and Farms to Equestrian Facilities, Multi-Family Properties, and Raw Land.

The investment possibilities are numerous, but what I found is that the best investment one can make is an investment in themselves. Lake Tahoe is a great place to make that happen.
