Jeff Hamilton, Luxury Broker

As an Olympic medalist and four-time speed skiing world champion, Jeff believes that being effective requires focus, commitment and character. Applying this framework to his interactions with clients and community, Jeff has built a successful real estate business in the Lake Tahoe region, delivering buyers and sellers transcendent service, experience and resources.

To market distinctive homes requires uncommon knowledge and resources. As one of Lake Tahoe’s leading luxury brokers, Jeff has represented buyers and sellers involving some of Tahoe’s most iconic properties. He also understands that regardless of its valuation, every home reflects the incalculable value of the life within.

Jeff takes pride in sharing a lifestyle and geography about which he is passionate. Because he knows every street, slope and stream in the area, clients trust him to introduce and connect them to the unique characteristics that make the area so alluring.

As Vice President and managing broker, Jeff has helped Sierra Sotheby’s grow from a seven-member company to one with over 80 agents. Jeff contributes to a number of community organizations, serving on the Sugar Bowl Academy Board, as well as on the Auburn Ski Club Board; he recently moved from a position on the Board of the Truckee Donner Land Trust to serve on its Land Acquisition Committee, remaining passionate about preserving open spaces. Jeff is a founding member of the Go Bigger Coalition, a new organization that helps kids make better decisions in an action sport climate. He is also involved with the 49er Foundation and the Gene Upshaw Foundation.

Jeff and his wife Carolyn raise their daughters in Truckee, both of whom are Nordic racers. In order to keep up with his girls, Jeff is making the transition from skiing fast downhill to skiing slowly uphill.

Licensed in both California and Nevada, Jeff enjoys complicated and intricate transactions where land-use regulations and multiple government agencies are involved.

Sotheby’s is the premier brand in luxury real estate. Jeff’s relationship with Sotheby’s International Realty enables him to provide superior levels of service, global marketing and expertise in Lake Tahoe and around the world.
