The Concert first kicked off in 2001 and has run every year since, with the exception of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dickson Realty has sponsored the event every year that it has taken place and we couldn’t be more honored to continue with the tradition.

The median sales price for a home in Incline Village and Crystal Bay was $2.53 million in April, nearly triple the number from just a year ago according to the data from Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Reno Ice opened earlier this year as the area’s first and only NHL-regulation sized ice rink and we are so excited to cool off on the ice this summer!

The long-awaited ice rink located at 15500 Wedge Parkway had been under construction for most of 2020, and the opening date was originally slated for late November. However, due to COVID-19, the completion of the facility was extended into January 2021.

"A group of local business professionals who had been traveling to South Tahoe from Reno on a weekly basis to play in a men’s league recognized the need for a rink in Reno, which is the largest winter sports demographic area without an ice arena," said Joel Grace, president of Reno Ice’s Board of Directors. "With the support of a local, lead donor,

There’s no secret that Northern Nevada is a wonderful place to live. One of the biggest draws of the Silver State has been its historically low tax structure.

The Private Bank by Nevada State Bank released the latest edition of its High Net Worth Report series last fall and it outlined the tax benefits for high-net-worth households in Nevada.
