Oh my, here we go again.

July 13, 2011

Reading North Tahoe Bonanza’s article today: “The way the national media portrays the housing market in near chaos with neighborhoods in Cleveland being bulldozed to reduce blight and homes in Las Vegas selling for a fraction of the cost to build them…such is not the case for the lakeview subdivision in Incline Village.” Actually it’s […]

“Joe’s your man if you need someone to trust. Joe Salcedo is a hard working Realtor. Joe is very professional and will go the extra mile.”

– Philip Duane Johncock


“I was laid off from the state in November of 2007 due to major budget cuts. We were no longer able to make our house payments as the job market was just beginning to get worse and worse. My agent in San Jose found Joe Salcedo in Reno for me and told me he has a lot of experience in short sales. He priced our home at a very realistic price in relation to the market values at the time. Joe was very professional and before we knew it we had an offer on our home. In September of 2008 our home closed and the bank forgave the difference. A short sale comes off of your credit in a much, much shorter time than a bank foreclosure. We will be forever grateful for the assistance of Joe Salcedo”

– James and Marsha McGinnis (feel free to call for a reference, Joe has my number)
