This month’s Partner Spotlight shines bright on Lacey Dremann, owner and principal designer of First Impression, a luxury home staging company here in Reno, Nevada. We have collaborated with her on projects in the past and have seen first-hand how a professionally-staged home can make a huge difference in both the selling price and days on the market.

Whether it’s staging a completely empty home or complementing existing furnishings, it’s all about creating an emotional connection. Buyers will ask themselves, “Could I live here?”

We had a chance to sit down with Lacey and she shared some great insight about herself, her business, and the industry in general. Read on to learn more in this enlightening interview.

What makes Reno so special?

Midsize cities in the U.S. are seeing a renaissance as people from large metro areas are getting sick of the hustle and bustle by putting down roots in smaller cities like Reno, Nevada. Compared to big cities, you’ll find better priced housing, improved quality of life, and business opportunities galore. What is the secret of the Biggest Little City that makes it such a great place to settle down? We have five great reasons why!

 

  1. YES to Business and Jobs; NO to Income Tax.

Just three short years ago, Tesla opened its Gigafactory and employed over 5,000 people. Soon after, other large companies followed suit like Apple, Switch, Microsoft, Intuit, and Patagonia. This movement created thousands of jobs for all

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 former Park Lane Mall site hasn’t seen any action in many years, however developers just revealed the plans for the property.

Park Lane is a 46-acre, master-planned development located on a busy corridor, close to MidTown. The site at Plumb Lane and Virginia Street will soon become a development that is pedestrian-friendly, with live-work and multi-use spaces, a 170-room hotel and a food hall called The Market Hall. The site has already undergone preparation, including replacement of aging sewer lines, for 18 months so that it could be ready for construction.

“For the past year, together with Lyon Living, we’ve been working toward raising the bar on our design and bringing to life our vision of a new lifestyle in Reno,” said Chip Bowlby,

Snow is falling in Northern Nevada and while everyone has skiing on the brain, we’re thinking about how to get you the most bang for your buck.

Spring is generally the most popular time of year when homes go on the market, but why get lost in the fray when you can beat the horde? Deciding to sell your home in the winter could reap you some cold, hard cash.

1. More serious buyers.

Not only are folks willing to brave the weather to look at homes, but you’ll avoid running into what we call looky-loos. Not everyone at your open house or touring your home intends to make a purchase. Some people are just thinking about moving and seeing what’s out there. Since so many homes pop up on the market in summer and fall, this is where we notice the most

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.
