Why was the 17th Fairway of Montreux’s Jack Nicklaus Championship Golf Course crowned the “Signature Hole?” The tee box is thrillingly perched 138 feet above the hole, providing an exhilarating view of the first shot. Gorgeously landscaped by both man and Mother Nature, the 464 Yard Par 4 features a narrow green protected by bunkers on each side, with Galena Creek running alongside the left portion of the fairway.

Just steps from the 17th tee box, our listing at 6031 Lake Geneva Drive has front-row seats to the golfing action. The hole is especially entertaining during the annual Barracuda Championship, one of only 45 stops on the PGA Tour. You can witness the magnetic excitement of professional golf while sipping an

Ashley Quinn is a Nevada firm of CPAs and financial professionals with particular experience in tax planning aspects of relocation from California to Nevada.

Nevada remains one of seven states with no state income tax, which makes it even more attractive for relocation. For those coming from California, the income tax savings can amount to 13% of your taxable income. To obtain Nevada residency, an individual must make Nevada his principal place of residence, or his primary home.

So according to Ashley Quinn, what are some of the most important steps to plan for tax savings in Nevada?

Residency is a question of fact and is normally considered when the taxpayer maintains their closest connections within that state. The “Close Connection Test”

The old Galena Lodge welcomes a trio of brand-new businesses, the perfect pit stops before or apres ski!

 

For 30+ years, the Alpine lodge on Mount Rose Highway was home to restaurants. You’ll find the quaint location just a few minutes beyond Montreux, in the Galena Forest area as the road rises towards Lake Tahoe. The Galena Forest Inn was built and opened in the lodge in 1983 by Reno culinary figures Gaudenz Derungs and Walter Zahnd. Julius Weiss, another Reno chef, bought the restaurant in 1988 and ran it for a decade before it was purchased by Craig Cunningham, another longtime local restauranteur. Later in 2005, Sierra Solitaire set up and wasn’t around for long. The Lodge at Galena followed and was open until 2013.

The top 15 most expensive Reno home sales in 2018 make quite an impressive list. Four of those 15 deals, including the Number 1 sale, had our Sullivan-Wonhof-Gore Luxury Real Estate Team at the helm.

Interestingly, many of the homes on the list were cash deals. Those buyers largely sold their out-of-state homes at a premium, putting them in a liquid position for real estate investments here in Reno. The most expensive home, a beautiful manor on Foret Circle in charming Montreux Golf & Country Club, sold for $4.9 million. This was an increase of $1.5 million from last year's top spot, as well as the highest sale ever in Montreux and the highest sales-per-square-foot since 2007. 

Seven of the most expensive homes are located in Montreux, three in
