I know so many people who have only visited Mammoth Lakes in the winter. I love the beautiful, snowy winters here as much as anyone else, but I always encourage my friends and family to visit this area in the spring, summer and fall as well. Since moving here, I’ve fallen even more in love with year-round mountain life. Here’s why:

1. You get to enjoy all four seasons.

Each time a new season begins, I say “this is my favorite season.” Then another season comes along and I say, “no, spring is my favorite season.” Then “no, summer is my favorite season.” All the way back to winter. I love each of our distinct seasons here — and it’s not just because I get to have a different wardrobe for each one (although that’s definitely a perk). It’s because each one offers such a different and amazing way to experience Mammoth Lakes.

2. It’s easy – and expected – to live an outdoorsy, active lifestyle here.

If we don’t schedule out what we want to do, we run out of time. My favorite activities are hiking, cross country skiing and road biking. I used to golf, but there are so many other things I want to do that I can’t fit it all in. Making it even better, I get to hear about my friends and acquaintances going on crazy adventures at all ages — rock climbing, mountain biking, motorcycle riding. The list goes on and on.

3. There’s endless small town charm.

We only have five stop lights in town, and I love it. I love going to the post office and to Vons to get groceries. The more crowded, the better — it’s a social experience and so much fun to see people I know when I go out. I love that Mammoth Lakes hardly has any chain restaurants, and I love interacting with our passionate, entrepreneurial local business owners.

4. You get solitude and security.

I love the peace and quiet of Mammoth Lakes. Even when it’s busy in town, you can easily find solitude. Less-traveled roads and just a few minutes on a hiking trail lead to complete quiet and solitude. I love that I always feel safe in Mammoth Lakes. I only lock my front door for two reasons: to keep bears out and to keep my dog in.

5. It’s endlessly beautiful.

Amazing beauty, blue skies, sunshine, mountain vistas… what more could you ask for? Every day I thank God for the amazing beauty all around us. Mammoth Lakes makes it easy to be grateful and present in my life. I am in constant awe of this place. I loved visiting Mammoth Lakes, but getting to see the changes in the landscape from day to day is something I’ll never take for granted.

The lakes basin is one of my favorite places to hike. There are so many hidden gems and places to see back there and always a new adventure to find for yourself and your hiking partner (John of course!)

In a seller's market, making a cash offer will help you compete against other buyers with a mortgage contingency in a bidding war, but it's not a license to make a low offer. If other buyers make a higher offer and are pre-approved for a mortgage, a seller could easily chose to take the calculated risk for more money.

They say things happen for a reason and that is absolutely true with this sale. My buyer clients were disappointed when they missed out in a multiple offer situation earlier this year. I believe it happened for a reason -- this condo is PERFECT for them! Thanks to Mickey Brown and Sierra Escrow or a smooth transaction!

My dad died in a car accident when I was 18 years old. He was a man of few words but during those 18 years (especially my high school years🤣) he provided plenty of advice. There was an entire "experiment" he watched me perform. I will spare you the details but the lesson was "we are all replaceable." Sounds harsh but it is true and has kept me on my toes and always doing my best -- nothing is guaranteed.

Anxious to hear the best advice you have received from your dad (or dad figure in your life).

Yes....that's me and my dad❣

If your parents (or another close relative) are giving you money to use toward a down payment on a house, make sure to get a "gift letter" signed by them stating that it's a gift, and not a loan to be repaid. It's also a good idea to have the money in your account months ahead of applying for your mortgage so that the money is "seasoned" in your account.
