Originally from Marin County, California I grew up in a Real Estate family. I attended college in Santa Barbara where my focus was as a PreMed Major and a surfing minor. The beauty and comfort of Northern California called me back and there I attended college in Sacramento. I met my husband while on the Water Ski team at CSUS and throughout our college years we spent every possible weekend in Truckee; snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, golfing and boating. We moved to Truckee with our daughter in 2004 and love our life here.Working For You…

"Through my active lifestyle here in Tahoe, I have explored the region giving me extensive knowledge of the area. My family and I feel blessed and lucky to call this place home. I enjoy helping others do the same. Whether you are a first time home buyer or are looking for that one of a kind vacation home, I would love to help."
Dionne Pope’s friendly, knowledgeable and well-rounded experience was exactly what I was looking for. I had two objectives when working with Dionne. I was looking for a stunning property and also looking to relocate. Dionne’s smart quick action allowed me to make good decisions and both objectives were met beyond my expectations. Dionne made it easy. I can thank her for my smooth experience with Martis Camp. She’s the best in the business!

Stefanie helped us buy a house when we didn't think we could. She was always very positive and very helpful. Her and her partner work well together in providing excellent service. I have recommended her to my friends as a buying and selling agent
– Susan & Chris, Truckee, CA
Young, fun, extremely knowledgeable, never pressured. Always made us feel like we were her only clients. She was never on the phone with anyone else while with us, was available to show us property immediately and always gave us her full attention. Wow! What a gal. She handled negotiations and closings smoothly and again, always put us and our interests first. Thank you Dionne.

My husband and I were moving to Truckee from out of town and were in a time crunch to find a home that would suit our growing family as well as accommodate our "work from home" jobs. Stefanie found us the perfect home equipped with two separate office spaces, something that is very hard to come by. She was amazing to work with every step of the way, helping to make the process as smooth as possible.
– Susan & Shane, Truckee, CA
She concentrated on accurately evaluating our needs in advance and provided us with a number of suitably tailored options. That made the experience as efficient as possible and afforded us the opportunity to complete the viewing to decision process in a single weekend. As a result we had additional time to relax and enjoy the beautiful Tahoe area and purchased an amazing property in Martis Camp.

Dionne, Now that I am thru one holiday and getting geared up for the next, I wanted to take a minute to write a note of Thanks for all your hard work in getting my mothers home sold. I am pleased that we were able to get a deal done in such a tough real estate market. The sale of mom’s home will enable her to end a wonderful chapter in her life and focus on the many good years to come.
I know the sale would not have come to fruition without all your hard work and persistence. Especially dealing with the three of us, mom and all the assorted issues of an old home. I wish the real estate brokers in Greenwich, CT had the same good training, work ethic and common sense to get a deal done. I was very impressed by your professionalism long distance.
P.S. The desk & chair did arrive here safely. The Tahoe Delivery guys did a good job of following thru too. I’m sure my dad would be pleased to know it will be enjoyed and well used.
– Doni, Greenwich, CT
Dionne, We wanted to thank you for all your help in finding us our perfect Tahoe Donner home. If it had not been for your persistence in searching for us, we would have not been fast enough to get this home! With 6 offers coming in after us, we were indeed lucky to have had you on the “watch!”
We appreciate you taking the time to really listen to what we wanted and did not want in a home. It is safe to say, that we found the perfect house for our needs and wants. Not only was your service exceptional in the buying stage, but also during the stages that followed- finding home services, meeting technicians when we could not be home, follow up phone calls with questions to the seller, the list goes on and on.
We would recommend you to anyone and everyone we meet who is looking to buy a home in the Lake Tahoe area. We look forward to doing business again with you in the future as we have found the best realtor in the area. Thank you again for all your hard work, professionalism and friendship!
