Mitch Argon, Broker/Owner
We began our search for real estate in the Gardnerville area with Mitch's assistance 6 or 7 years ago. The search has been extensive. Mitch has always been there to offer assistance and answer all my questions. Mitch has my utmost confidence when it comes to all things real estate that we need help with. Mitch has a knowledge of the area that is beyond reproach. We will with confidence recommend to any others that may need Mitch's assistance.
Tim and Pati R.
I had been following Mitch's online quarterly real estate market report for some time. The market report contains such insightful and useful information. It was based on the professionalism of that market report that I made the decision to hire Mitch and Cal Neva Realty long before we decided it was time to sell. And it turned out to be a great decision. On the day of our first meeting Mitch brought with him a detailed and thorough analysis of the comparable homes in the area. We set the asking price based on this analysis. Mitch followed through with a thorough marketing plan that included professional photography, recommendations for home staging, online market MLS listings, and a strategy for how the home was to be presented, and when offers to were to be first considered. Within the first week we had over 20 showings. By the end of the first week, we had 8 offers on the table. We notified all the prospective buyers that we were going to accept the best and highest offers by the end of the week. In the end, I accepted a competitive offer well above the asking price. Mitch handled the negotiations with diplomacy and a winning strategy. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Thanks Mitch!
We have been working with Mitch Argon for over 10 years and he has brokered 8 properties for us. He has by far been the most professional Realtor/Broker we have ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable of the Reno and surrounding Real Estate Market, and knows how to communicate well with other agents and does a great job addressing our needs through the purchasing process. He has always had our best interests in mind and you don't find that kind of service and integrity very often.
Rick and Christina M.
This was the first time that my wife and I purchased some property. From the moment we met Mitch, he was there for us 110%. He always answered his phone (even when he was on vacation in Spain) and was available whenever we needed him. Whenever we were looking at a piece of property, Mitch gave us so much information about the property, comps on similar properties that had sold in the area and answered any and all questions that we had about it. On the very rare occasion that he couldn't answer a question, he immediately found the answer for us. He is in my wife's and my opinion, the best real estate agent any one could ever have. We highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling any property. There is no one better.
Steve and Debbie G.
I would describe Mitch as extremely professional, knowledgeable, finely detailed and smart. Mitch always seemed to be one step ahead of the game and inserted wisdom and great discernment when the unexpected occurred. He stuck with us over a very, very long time and remained focused and helpful with a great sense of humor. We give Mitch our HIGHEST recommendation to anyone seeking his services.
Rene and Judy G.
Mitch is the Broker/Owner of CalNeva Realty. Prior to becoming a licensed REALTOR in 2004, Mitch spent twenty years in the software and software services industry in technical, sales, and management roles with IBM, Microsoft, QuickStart Technologies, and Fidelity National Financial.

Tina Egbert, REALTOR®
Tina was very attentive to my wife and I as we both wanted certain things from our home searches. Moving from the east coast, Tina not only showed us our internet favorites, but she was accurate in expanding our search area that matched our priorities in a community. Once she got to know us, she was able to target some really great homes for us to consider.
Tina was great to work with and kept me in the loop during the entire selling cycle. Her feedback on potential houses was helpful and her insight on what would work for was right on. It was a pleasure meeting and working with her and I highly recommend her to any potential client seeking a home. Thank you Tina!
Enjoyed working with Tina so much, and appreciative of her patience with our long search and ever changing decisions. She understood what we needed and brought us back to that more than once. Very professional yet warm friendly relatable person with client's best interest always in mind. Can't say enough good things about her.
From day one until close of escrow Tina was fully involved and listened to our needs. Our desired living location was at least 45 minutes from her office but she never once balked at traveling this distance when we asked for her to show us homes in our desired location. We probably asked her close to a dozen times, and every time she coordinated the showing immediately and without hesitation. When we did find our perfect home she negotiated diligently with the sellers agent and secured our new home for exactly the price we offered. I have since introduced my parents and a very close family friend to Tina, both of whom are looking for their perfect home too. Tina, words cannot express our gratitude for the way you treated us, negotiated for us, and your genuine concern and understanding of our needs. Thank you for your patience and being there for us every step of the way!!!
Mitch & Jocelyn
Tina was fantastic to work with. She kept us updated throughout the listing. We had to move out of the area earlier than expected and she took care of coordinating some repairs. She is a pleasure to work with.
Tim & Cindy P.
I would describe my experience buying a home was pleasant and successful, thanks to Tina. She is knowledgeable, listened carefully to my thoughts and needs for a home, and was very responsive. I found Tina client centered, very much in tune with my needs, responsive and very helpful throughout the process (no small feat). I think Tina is the best real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with (I have purchased a number of houses over the years). She leaves little to wonder about and is definitely interested in the client finding a home that fits their needs. I will recommend her without hesitation. In fact, I am insisting that my son and daughter in law use her services when they purchase their next home.
We currently live in the Midwest and are considering the Reno/Carson Valley area for our future retirement home. As we began our search we initially connected with Tina through email. We made it clear from the onset we were gather information and not ready to purchase a home at this time. Tina nevertheless went out of her way through email communications and later in person when we visited to acquaint us with the area. Indeed, during our visit Tina spent an entire day escorting us throughout the South Reno and Carson Valley locales, sharing valuable insights about the general area, neighborhoods, builders, climate, etc. Moreover, Tina made suggestions for a second day of independent exploration as we requested. Thanks to Tina's experience and professional acumen, we left the Reno/Carson Valley area with a good understanding of the lifestyle we can expect and a much more focused idea of where we will concentrate our search. We look forward to working further with Tina in finding our next home.
Larry & Karen B.
I love, love, love Tina! We moved here from Southern California and needed quite a bit of information about the area, beyond what we could read on the internet - an honest answer from a local. She is down to earth and casual, not pushy in any way. We felt comfortable with her and knew she would help us find the right ranch. She handled everything we needed and beyond, long distance. I have recommended her to many of my friends.
Rich and Becky C.
We just closed escrow after a six month long search and I couldn't have done it without Tina. Not only did Tina show us any property we wanted to see, but happily accommodated my every request. We turned down quite a few properties because we felt as though just weren't right and she was SO understanding the entire time. She encouraged us to wait until it felt like the one! Even with two kids in tow every time, she was so patient and kind and so knowledgeable about our area (Dayton). Throughout the 45 day escrow process, Tina was on top of it and called me even just to let me know that things were going smoothly. I could call her 7 days a week with the silliest questions and she'd always answer or get back to me within minutes. If you need a Realtor who's going to be relentless in your search, answer all of your questions and be very kind through it all, Tina is your person. I would give her 10 stars! A+++++
I have dealt with Tina Egbert in an effort to explore the possibility of relocating to a particular area, and though we did not find anything within our budget that would suit us, my wife and I agree that Tina was relentless in her search to accommodate us and brought us the best of what is available. She is among the very best!
I first talked to Tina while we still lived in NC. She called me in response to my inquiry at CalNeva and she was so genuine and friendly. After we relocated and were living with my son in VC Highlands I contacted her to ask if she would be our agent. She is a very caring agent who listens to you and is totally professional. She follows up on everything and stays in touch with you through the entire process. We have never worked with a better agent. I would value her as a friend. She is genuine. THANKS TINA FOR EVERYTHING.
Janice and Ken C.
Over two years ago we first spoke with Tina. She has been very helpful in our search for the right property for us in the Dayton NV area. We looked at new homes and existing homes over a two year period. Tina was very patient with us. She was completely professional and through in the way she helped us. Besides being a true pro she is a down to earth lady who is a pleasure to work with. Our highest recommendation!
Living in California, we looked off and on for a home in Carson City for years, checking out neighborhoods and getting an impression of the city. When it was time to make the move, it was our blessing to find Tina Egbert. Between visits, e-mails and phone calls she cut to the chase and efficiently introduced us to homes in the part of town we wanted to live in. When we were picky and indecisive, she stayed positive, kept working at it, and ultimately found us exactly what we wanted. We are happy and pleased to call Tina our Realtor and friend, and recommend her highly. As a footnote, Tina's work didn't stop once we found the home we wanted. She shepherded us through the signing, inspection, closing and the weeks in. She kept us up to date on what we needed to know and do, fielded our seemingly unending questions and made sure all was in order when we moved to Carson City. We can't thank her enough for all of her hard work, diligence and good cheer.
Bob and Lisa D.
Tina was amazing! She was always available to answer questions or meet with me. Tina explained every aspect of the process of buying a house and what to expect. I would recommend her to anyone wanting a pleasant house buying experience.
Tina, You have been an exception to your duties as a Realtor. You stuck through one
of the most Difficult purchases. Your Persistent, Professional ethics have been a blessing at a time when most Realtors would walkaway. I would recommend your Professional services to everybody.
Tina had her work cut out for her when she took my husband and I on. We weren't sure exactly what direction we were headed but wanted to see what was out there anyway. After telling her we were "probably just looking" she provided us with multiple listings available in the areas requested. Because of her diligence we were putting in an offer the first week of our search. She was always available and attended to our realty needs. She is greatly appreciated.
Mike and Tami
We starting searching for homes in the Minden/Gardnerville area and realized we needed a professional that knew the area. We reached out to Tina Egbert of CalNeva Realty via email in pursuit of a desirable retirement home and neighborhood. Tina was quick to respond and was accommodating to our schedule since we were moving from another state. She never cancelled or missed an appointment. She reached out to better understand us a individuals to enable her to find us the perfect home. For approximately one year she worked to find our home. The day came when we FOUND IT! It was perfect, everything we wanted and more. Tina worked with us every step of the way through negotiations, ALL the paperwork, inspection and walkthrough. In addition to finding our home she provided information we requested above and beyond her professional duties. We would highly recommend Tina if anyone is in need of a professional and committed real estate professional. Thank you Tina!
Mark and Brenda
I have worked with Tina Egbert on several properties and she is honest, hard working and very professional. She is always willing to go the extra mile for her customers. Tina is also very thorough, efficient and knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. I absolutely love working with her and would highly recommend her!

Wes Elliott, REALTOR®
Mr. Elliott is the best Real Estate Agent we have ever dealt with. He was always there for any questions that we had and took care of every detail in a very professional manner. A very honest and reliable individual.
Eugene & Patricia B.
Wes Elliot was wonderful to work with and very patient. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an agent.
Art & Tammy L.
I had initially contacted Wes back in late May when I began to look at real estate in the Reno/Tahoe area. I had been planning to relocate to the area from the bay area, and a property in the Virginia City Highlands had caught my eye on Zillow. Wes happened to be the listing agent and him and I began some casual conversations about the area. I’m a Tesla employee and had planned to relocate to the new Tesla factory east of Reno as soon as the opportunity came up. I had been dreaming of a cabin in the mountains for quite some time, as I’m an avid outdoor enthusiast. Wes set me up with an automatic NNRMLS search based on my criteria and I immediately began to receive notifications of new properties on the market as they popped up. I’d let him know when one worth seeing would come up, and Wes would quickly dig up any info he could find on the property.
As I became closer and closer to getting my transfer, our contact frequency increased and I came up on a couple of different weekends to check out multiple properties that we had selected and had made arrangements to see in person. Just as my luck would have it, the perfect property came on the market a few days prior to me starting my new job in the area, and we made an offer that day. Everyone that Wes had me work with - the lender, title company, and inspectors were all top notch and extremely personable and professional. Since purchasing my home and receiving the keys last week, my opinion on realtors has come full circle. There is now way I could have gone through this process without Wes’ experience, knowledge, friendly demeanor, and connections. Wes went above and beyond his duties repeatedly, and I now consider him close personal friend and will without hesitation refer anyone to him with any real estate needs.
Highly recommended by a friend who bought the house through Wes in Sparks area , Wes purchased two houses of investment for me in Sparks/Reno area as buyer agent. Being in the SF bay area, which is 4-5 hours of driving to Reno, Wes used very efficiently the internet tools, such as shooting Youtube video clip for the houses of interest to communicate all the info I needed for the decision making. The whole closing process went very smoothly, and I didn't even go to Sparks for the closing.
Working with Wes was a wonderful experience! He is not one to take your money and run. He continues to follow up with us as we get settled in our new home and always responds to our questions willingly. He knows the area like the back of his hand and is well connected and respected.
Having relocated from out of state we've been grateful Wes has built a network of quality people he is comfortable recommending and we have worked with several, delighted to not have to resort to the yellow pages for assistance.
We would not hesitate to recommend Wes, he is the real deal. His many years of experience and love of the area are evident and he made us comfortable throughout every aspect of our relocation experience.
Wes Elliot in an outstanding Realtor. He possesses qualities that my wife and I (as home sellers and buyers) found truly unmatchable in the realty business; professionalism, attention to detail, and honesty are qualities that he applied to the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Our home was listed and sold within 2 days at full appraisal value. The process was seamless; He had the documentation and contracts prepared in minutes. The purchase of a new home has been just as gratifying. Without his input, we would have potentially bought homes with huge hidden monetary costs: future transitions to sewage, heating issues due to poor windows/insulation, invasive species or trees with poor health (to name a few). His agenda is to find the home for you, and he works tirelessly to do so. I highly recommend anyone interested in purchasing or selling their home to work with Wes. He has connections for just about all your needs: financing, building, landscaping. It puts your mind at ease knowing a professional is handling your business with the best intentions. I hope to work with Wes in future business for years to come.
Wes was great he explained and answered all of our questions he was always pleasant and happy to help anytime. He returned all of our calls quickly. I would recommend him to any of my friends that want to sell a home.
I highly recommend Wes Elliott for a Real Estate Agent. He is very professional as well as patient in taking the time to find the "one" house that was perfect. Wes made house hunting fun and always made himself available around my busy schedule. He took the time to explain the various situations that would arise during the whole process. He genuinely cares about his clients and that makes the stress of buying a house feel a lot less stressful. Thank you Wes for going over and above every step of the house hunting and home buying process!
Wes was a delight to work with. He was prompt, knowledgeable and very helpful. He has the prefect one two punch with lending and title. Wes made the entire process simple and quick.
I purchased a property through Wes Elliott two years ago. I highly recommend him with no reservation. Since I was living out of state at the time, I needed Wes to take care of many details for me. He never disappointed. When I flew into Reno to actually look at properties, Wes spent an entire day with me. We looked at about a half dozen properties, and Wes took me as far north as Red Rock Valley, through the Virginia foothills, through New Washoe City, and all the way through Carson City. When I decided on a property, Wes immediately went to work setting up all the necessary inspections (and was on site for every one). He arranged the financial transfer with the title company, which went very smoothly. To sum up, I never could have found and purchased my property without him. He works hard and fast with his clientele to find them the best possible property for the money they have to spend, and then continues to work with them right up until closing day! Highly recommended.
We completed a complicated investment property purchase in Sparks, Nev done by an interstate mortgage banker for us as 2 Co Owners in different states (Cailf & Wash). As you can imagine the process was nothing short of daunting under the new rules of buying property today after the housing melt down in 2007. Wes Elliot was exemplary as our Agent and guided us through the process without skipping a beat to close. His level of communication was over and above our expectations. I can't remember the last time I received such excellent service in an real estate transaction and certainly not in one like this. Wes deserves all the kudos as a real estate professional one can receive and as a person I count him as a blessing. Check with Wes first when purchasing in the Sparks/ Reno area!!
Wes has lived in the Reno/Sparks area his entire life. Wes has experience in many aspects of the real estate industry from residential building and remodeling as a contractor to selling real estate franchises for a national real estate company. Over the last ten years, Wes has focused on assisting a variety of clients (investors, first time home buyers, etc) who are buying or selling residential real estate.
Wes and his wife have raised three children who all live and work in the Reno area. Wes and his wife are blessed with 6 grand children. Wes enjoys golfing, playing drums, and hanging out with my best friend, my wife! Top of Page
Debbie Graham, REALTOR®
This is one of the most awesome people to have on your side if your looking to buy or sell in the Real Estate Market.
Debbie is super flipping awesome, super great at what she does and can't wait to buy a bunch of houses with her soon.
I recently retired from the electronics manufacturing business in the San Jose Bay Area. The cost of living there had become prohibitive, and it was time for me to leave. I have always like the Carson City area, and decided to look here. I made an appointment to meet with Debbie, and start looking at homes. In a very short time, I felt like she learned exactly what I was looking for in terms of price, construction, and location. I was traveling from the Bay Area to look at homes, so was very important to me that we did not waste time looking at homes that would not be of interest to me. As we visited different homes, I was finding her comments were pretty much mirroring my thoughts. She seemed very diligent in finding what she knew I was looking for, and successfully did so. I have been in my new home for a little over one month now, and am very pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
We met with Debbie to discuss buying our new home in the Carson valley area. From our first impression, as it proved to the completion of our home purchase, we knew we had found the most professional and ethical agent to trust. Our purchase was not as smooth as we had wished with complications with the sale of our home in S. California, but Debbie was always there to assist and guide us. Her knowledge of the real estate market, the local area and the right people to deal with was invaluable. Buying a home is stressful but Debbie made our transaction possible through her tireless attention to our needs. We highly recommend and encourage all who need an agent to contact Debbie.
Debbie was our realtor for over a year. We were moving from Las Vegas to Northern Nevada and were very particular in our list of items we wanted in a home. Debbie was outstanding in her diligence and hard work in finding homes that met our needs. Not only was she accommodating to us when we "out of the blue" traveled up to Northern Nevada to look at houses, but she kept us informed of new listings immediately as they became available. Throughout the entire process thru to the final closing of the home, Debbie was there. We have recommended her to several people who have been interested in moving to this area and would recommend her to anyone that needed a dedicated realtor.
Glenn & I never dreamed of a buying a retirement home in Minden but Debbie made our dreams come true! We reside in Santa Clarita, California and have extended family in Gardnerville. We fell in love with Carson Valley and the community years ago. On sheer "LUCK" we selected Debbie from a realtor website during a visit a few years back. We truly hit the jackpot with Debbie as our realtor. Debbie gives 110% to everything!!! She worked round the clock, coordinating our long distance schedules to meet with home viewings, escrow, and even organized workers to fix up our new purchased home while we were out of state! WHO DOES THAT? Debbie does!! She's incredible. My husband and I have made many business transactions buying homes and properties in the past but, we have never encountered such special, unique, caring, down to earth and truly committed realtor. Debbie is there for you every step of the way to make sure it all comes together and her clients are happy. :)
Suzzanne & Glenn F.
We were very fortunate to work with Debbie in Incline Village. She went above and beyond to assist with a huge volume of documents and a novice closing agent to make sure the deal would close. Debbie is a first class realtor. She is a true professional, that will go the extra mile for her clients. We would highly recommend her.
Debbie moved from Southern California to Northern Nevada's Carson Valley in 1985. She obtained her Nevada real estate license in 1989 and worked in sales, property management, and as a real estate assistant for several years. She then took a hiatus to raise her five children, working as a bookkeeper for Tahoe Valley Electric Supply, an electrical contractor supply company owned by Debbie and her husband, Dan. During the last 20 years, Dan and Debbie have designed and built three family homes. Their current home was purchased as a bank-owned, and remodeled prior to moving in. This experience has given Debbie a diverse knowledge of the building and selling aspects of local real estate. In 2013, with only one child left at home, Debbie re-entered the real estate business full time. Debbie is a member of the National Association of REALTORS and the Reno/Sparks Association of REALTORS, and enjoys the challenge of assisting clients with all aspects of real estate.
Debbie is an avid sports fan and enjoys trail running, fitness training, boating and spending time with her family and friends. Top of Page
Cheryl Haines, REALTOR®
Cheryl is by far hands down the BEST Realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. She didn't treat me like a sale she treated like a friend who listened and cared. She went out of her way to make sure I got the best deal. Cheryl was there for me for every step of the buying process.
Frank & Stephanie
Our names are Ken and Gloria L. and we would highly recommend Cheryl Haines to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable Realtor. She as always on time and met all our needs. She worked very hard and spent a lot of time finding the perfect home for us! So if you need someone that will give you their all to find your dream home call Cheryl Haines, you won't be disappointed!! Thank You Cheryl !!
Ken & Gloria L.
We recently relocated from CA to NV and it was a yearlong process to find a home. Cheryl's knowledge of the area helped us tremendously in narrowing our search. Any time we were in town, she was always available to show us homes. Once our choice was made, we could rest easy while we sold our home in CA as Cheryl advocated for us with the builder. She always kept us in the loop and we appreciated her advice. We found her very conscientious and wouldn't hesitate to use her again or refer her to others. Buying or selling a home, you are in good hands with Cheryl.
Cheryl is a Nevada licensed REALTOR working in the greater Reno-Sparks area. She has personally invested in rental properties since 1993. Prior to beginning her career in real estate, Cheryl had a 26 year career as an environmental consultant which included working with financial institutions and developers to complete environmental due diligence, and if necessary, remediation on commercial real estate transactions.

Crystal Jackson, REALTOR®
Crystal was very informative and helpful. She was always cheerful and polite. She 2ould give me weekly suggestions on available homes that I may be interested in. I would recommend her to others. The house I bought was one she recommended for me to look at, I had seen it listed but it did not catch my eye.
Crystal made my first home buying experience incredibly smooth and painless. Everything was upfront and open so there were no surprises and she made me feel valued as a client. I would recommend Crystal to anyone!
We cannot say enough good things about Crystal. Infinite patience (no matter how many different homes we wanted to look at), kind, friendly and a hard worker. She went out of her way to keep us informed and help us find a home that fit our needs and budget. She explained each step of the process in a way that was easy for us to understand and explained the positive AND negative points to consider for every house we looked at. We consider Crystal a friend as well as a wonderful realtor. We recommend her services every chance we get.
WOW!!!!! That is what I have to say about Crystal! You managed to land my new home! Unique, tons of character! Just what I was looking for! Thank you so much for all that you did to make my dream come true. I will refer you to all of my friends and family who are buying or selling.
Very friendly: her smile and warmth
Efficient: knew her stuff....information
Helpful: how and what we should do next
Prompt: to respond to our questions & concerns
Honest & sincere: no gimmicks or run arounds
Caring: true concern for our family & personal problems
Followed up: long after....to see how things were going! Can't get better than that!!
Robert & Carmel G.
Having bought and sold four homes prior to using Crystal, we can honestly say this was by far the smoothest transaction. Crystal worked very hard in getting our home sold during the difficult holiday season, including open houses, flyers, advertising, etc. She quickly addressed and resolved any and all hurdles during the whole process and always communicated with us from start to finish. Crystal was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to family and friends in the future.
We used Crystal for the sale of our home in South Reno and for the purchase of another home in Washoe Valley. Crystal kept in close contact with us throughout the entire process. She helped us price our home to sell (we got an offer 4 days after it was listed) and she guided us through the offer process to get a fair price on the purchase of our new home. There were some unexpected challenges along the way with items not passing inspection on the purchase of our new home, but Crystal was incredibly quick to handle the situation to make sure we closed on time. Crystal is very organized and detail oriented and she made the stress of buying and selling a home almost nonexistent. I rave about Crystal to anyone looking to buy or sell their home and we wouldn't hesitate to use her again if and when the time comes!
As one of Crystal's first customers (seller) we were very pleased with the courtesy and professionalism that Crystal brings to the Real Estate business. I have sold and purchased five homes in my lifetime and this sale was by far the easiest and most pleasant. Crystal adds a personal touch to the deal and was on top of every detail the entire way.
Crystal retired in August of 2015 as the Executive Director of the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada. Crystal served 35 years in Nevada state and federal government. Crystal spent nearly 17 years on the staff of Richard H. Bryan while he served as United States Senator, Nevada Governor and Nevada Attorney General. Prior to government service Crystal obtained her real estate license, however, government service sidetracked her plans. Crystal has come full circle and returned to her first passion which is real estate. Crystal is a member of the National Association of REALTORS and the Reno/Sparks Association of REALTORS®.
As Executive Director, Crystal was responsible for leading the agency’s day-to-day administrative operations, which included working with a large and diverse group of professionals, overseeing a multi-million dollar budget, negotiating and monitoring contracts, interpreting regulations and laws, meeting deadlines, and promoting excellent customer service. Crystal continues to use these valuable skills and expertise as a Realtor®.
Being a native Nevadan, Crystal has a deep-rooted love for this area. She believes this is an amazing place to call home, raise a family and retire. All of which she has done. Crystal holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. Crystal is married with twin boys, has three step-daughters and six grandchildren.

Joanna Mikhail, REALTOR®
Joanna was instrumental in helping us find and close on a great house that met several criteria we wanted and she was outstanding throughout the process from searches through and after closing.
Jordan & Paula P.
Joanna has great personal relationship instincts! We had a six month home buying relationship. Early on we made a commitment to ourselves that we would end up purchasing our Reno home with Joanna as our agent/representative. There were a LOT of houses that we considered during that six month period and a LOT of dialog about purchasing a house. Joanna helped tremendously providing relevant insights about intangible factors far beyond the cost per square foot of a listing. Her services were invaluable to us!
Philip & JoAnn O.
Joanna is an "excellent" real estate agent, more than that she is a fantastic person who listens to the needs of her clients and is genuine about ensuring that the people that she works with are happy and satisfied. When we submitted our request, we were contacted by Joanna immediately and she confirmed what we were looking for, then went to work and the next day had 12 homes for us to view with the most promising first. She worked within our time schedule and even changed her plans to ensure our needs were met. Ultimately we purchased the first home we were shown. Joanna then went to work to negotiate with the seller and was compassionate about ensuring we were satisfied. She also worked with the lender and title company and coordinated the dates and times convenient to us. We would highly recommend her to anyone, including friends and family.
James & Joyce
Mine was an unusual situation.. we chose a home and then she remotely helped me with the entire purchase. At no point did I feel I was getting less than solid advice and information. She recommended other professionals that I used and all worked out. She and her crew were amazing and I felt this could not have gone better even if I had been on site.
Joanna Mikhail is a wonderful realtor to work with -- she kept us informed at all times. She is diligent, hardworking and a person of integrity. We will recommend her to all of our friends and colleagues. Thank you!
Joanna was extremely open and honest. She undestood our needs and the fact that we did ot live locally she did an outstanding job keeping us up to date and informed. She responded immediately to e-mails and phone calls and feel she went the extra mile to help us out. Ultimately she was able to find us a property that met our needs.
I felt immediately comfortable with Joanna, she had a very welcoming smile. Joanna always showed me a great deal deal of respect and listened intently to my individual wants and needs in regards to the properties she showed me.. She was very knowledgeable and acted promptly when notified with questions. I felt very secure working with Joanna and highly recommend her if you are looking for any property, she exceeded my expectations.
Mary Jane and Craig
My company was relocating me and Joanna helped me short sell my house. She was fantastic, very organized and on top of every bit of paperwork. She was able to have my house sold in just a few weeks and that included having the banks approve the sale.
I never had to call her to ask for a status update, Joanna was always in contact with me letting me know what was going on in the market and with the processing. She truly was a wonderful calming resource during a very hectic time in our lives. My family and I are so grateful for all of her hard work.
Katrina and Mark
Selling a house is always stressful, and our house was no exception. Her commitment to us, professionalism, and passion for what she does helped us through the difficult moments. Joanna worked closely with us on providing comps to establish a great pricing strategy. Joanna was highly competent in negotiating which kept us on track and resulted in our house selling just higher than our asking price. Joanna is knowledgeable, informative, resourceful, detail-oriented and ethical - a Realtor who I would recommend!

Mark Nash, REALTOR®
Mark was absolutely amazing!!! I signed up for updates on your website over a year ago. He called and touched base with me at least two times during the year and was very pleasant when I informed him each time that we weren't quite ready to jump into the market. Politely asked if he could call and check at a later date and I said yes. The night he saw my frenzy of house saving on the website he followed-up with me again. I sent him a list of houses we wanted to see and to my amazement he was able to schedule a viewing of all the houses that very week and in one day. He walked us through every step of the process from offer to closing and even sent us a list of potential mortgage brokers. He was knowledgeable, responsive, kind, personable, funny and handled the transaction like only a true professional would. I can not say enough about his low pressure sales approach and he is the reason we chose CalNeva Realty to handle our real estate need. Although we do not plan on purchasing again as we will go out of this house feet first. Mark Nash at CalNeva will be highly recommended to any of our family and friends who are looking to purchase a home in the future. Thanks for making our home buying experience so easy.
We were very happy with you and the manner in which you orchestrated our home purchase. We will absolutely let anyone and everyone know about our experience with you if they are searching for a home.
We used Mark for our recent move across town, and he is a lifesaver. We found ourselves in a situation where we needed to sell our current home in order to move into our dream home. We had no idea where to begin and Mark really helped to guide us through the process. Whether it was tailoring and pricing our house for sale, or finding and negotiating with those 'diamond in the rocks' properties that exceeded our expectations. Mark helped keep everything on schedule and made our transition as smooth as possible. He was there to walk us through financing, contingencies, inspections, repairs, and title on two houses at the same time. I highly recommend Mark and CalNeva Reality.
Mark has been our realtor since 2011 (when he was with another office) and since then we have bought and sold several properties. We have been very happy with every transaction and Mark makes the real estate business easy! He is knowledgeable, timely, and always goes the extra mile for his clients.
Whether buying or selling, I use Mark Nash for all my real estate needs.
I wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
He's personable, hard working and a Realtor you can trust.
Mark has lived in the Reno/Sparks area since relocating from Southern California in 1973. Prior to Mark's real estate career, he owned a construction company and handyman service. Mark has been a licensed REALTOR for over thirteen years and has won several national "Buyer of the Year" awards in addition to selling real estate franchises for a national real estate company.

Chang Suh, Broker-Salesperson
I just want to say that our experience with Chang was wonderful! He helped my husband and I with everything we needed from selling our home to helping us purchase our new home. The person we purchased from was not easy to deal with and he was a complete gentleman and professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor! Thank You Chang!
Kevin & Julia B.
I suddenly found myself in a position to buy a home, but I had relatively little free time do deal with all the requirements. Chang made it easy, the whole process was smooth and organized. He was always very responsive to my questions, and provided answers and feedback extremely quickly. He provided me with thoughtful and helpful recommendations whenever I needed them. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent.
I discovered when working with Chang that he was an extraordinary person and an extraordinary realtor. My search for a home in the Reno area was not easy. And as a buyer I was not easy either. I was 72 years old, living on social security, living in public housing and running a small Internet business. And before I hooked up with Chang some realtors would not even return my phone calls when I explained my situation.
In spite of all these difficulties, for the better part of a year I worked with Chang to find a home for myself and my teen aged son. The thing that struck me about Chang is that he was always available; it is like Chang works all the time for his customers. I would send him an e-mail at 5:30 in the morning and get a reply within minutes. I would call at 8:00 pm on a holiday and he would call back immediately.
I went through three deals with Chang before HE found the right lender for me. The first deal I backed out of, the second deal was a seller-lender mess that dragged out for months. But the third deal was a charm.
Chang always tolerated my idiosyncrasies, my weird working-sleeping hours and my frustrated tirades. He never missed an appointment, a showing, or a meeting. Chang always had informed honest answers to my endless questions.
When I finally got the keys to my long-sought-after home I realized that it could never have happened without the help of this extraordinary realtor. If you chose Chang Suh as YOUR realtor you have chosen the very best.
Chang has been great from day 1. He is very accommodating on the schedule for showing, or time to talk on the phone. During the process, he is very responsive on texts/emails, which I think it is one of the best confidence booster. It was my very first home buying experience, so knowing that I have a realtor that I can reach out at anytime and get a respond back instantly was very important to me! Maybe all realtors know the market, know the process, so the level of customer service would be where Chang stands out and I would recommend it to anyone for that reason.
All we can say about Chang. ... is that he made the experience one that I will always remember ... in a good way!!!! He constantly went out of his way to ensure that I, being a newbie home buyer, understood and all of my questions were answered. He checked on things I didn't even know that we had to do. Mainly ... HE WAS AMAZING!!!! I will definitely keep his number and recommend him to friends. I have actually referred a few to him already.
My wife and I used Chang to buy our house in Sparks back in October. He did a great job showing a number of homes and also helped with the walk through as we are still in South Carolina. We would recommend him to anyone.
Chang was the consummate professional and excellent real estate agent. We met by sheer happenstance after stumbling on this website and he was attached to a particular house we were interested in. Even though, that particular house did not end up working out, he found us the best house possible. He helped move everything along, was punctual, and most importantly, flexible with his time in getting things done for me. Anyone looking for a great real estate agent will find it in Chang. I highly recommend him and if you do use him, you will certainly not be disappointed. Five stars all around!
Wonderful experience working with Chang while purchasing a new house. He was awesome about answering questions, providing me direction, and being my sound board when I needed specific things done. Chang followed up each step of the way and made sure I understood everything along the way. Highly recommend his services! He was amazing!!!
Chang has been a delight to work with. Well, really he as been working "For" us. We have a large area we are looking at. He has been just awesome setting up viewings for us as we try and find our retirement home. He has always been available and willing to drive us hours in our search. We are quiet passengers yet our conversation with Chang is purposeful and respectful. The drive is about us... and Chang makes us feel that way. Prompt, professional, persistent, responsive, non-judgmental and a darn good driver! I will recommend him highly to my retiring friends, relocating near me!
Chang - Doug and I both want to thank you so very much for helping us this last month. Selling our condo and finding us the house of our dreams. We could not trust anyone more than you to take such excellent care of our needs and wants. Even though we have sold and bought over the last 40 years we have not experienced working with someone whose sole mission was to be there for us, get to know us, and be available at all hours. You have reassured me when I was low and brought my spirits up right when they really needed lifting. I hope I was not too much of a pain but I feel we have made a new friend and hope to send you some business.
After we get settled we would like to have a house warming party and invite you and your family. We will introduce you to many potential clients and spread the word. Paying it forward. That’s the way it should always be.
You are a true professional with such a warm and understanding heart. We will never forget what you have done for us.
With many, many thanks and love!
