Rebecca Monson remembers when she chose to make her home in the Truckee area. As a very logical person who has always valued education and learning, but this savvy businesswoman will tell you, like so many others who are proud to call this area home, Rebecca’s major reason for choosing to live here is that this beautiful, natural location touched her heart-and continues to do so.
The eldest child of two doctors, Rebecca was raised in Novato. Armed with her bachelor’s degree in economics from Cornell, Rebecca pursued her interest in marketing through positions with the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee/Donner Chambers of Commerce. While working for the latter, Rebecca attended night school at the University of Nevada to earn her MBA, completing studies in finance, investment analysis and venture capital.
Rebecca met her husband here in the Truckee area. He is a licensed general contractor, and he and Rebecca built their first house together on a lot with magnificent 180-degree views of the Truckee mountain range. The couple continues to buy and sell homes in the area, becoming well acquainted with the many different neighborhoods and their unique properties. With the birth of daughters Madelyn and Emily the two settled into a happy family life in their scenic surroundings, making the most of all the summer and winter activities available.
If you add it all up-Rebecca’s intimate knowledge of and love for the area, her extensive education, including a degree in economics and an MBA, and her marketing background-you have the right choice for a professional to help you with your move in the Truckee/Tahoe area. Rebecca’s philosophy on real estate service is based on her quest to “educate” her clients with the information they need to make sound, informed decisions. For sellers, she’s developed a network of buyers interested in moving to the area and expertly connects them with the resources and affiliated professionals necessary to make their transaction the best it can be. And her buyers benefit from her comprehensive knowledge of financing and exceptional ability to analyze market trends.
A master of the art of the “long-distance transaction,” Rebecca utilizes the Internet e-mail, overnight couriers, digital signatures, social media and a powerful database of contacts for sellers and buyers who must conduct their transaction from many miles away. Her long-distance clients particularly appreciate her ability to keep the process running smoothly while consistently updating them on the progress of their transactions.
