FOUNDER, BROKER, OWNER
In 2007, Michael Oliver opened his first office in a historic cabin on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Seeing flaws in the corporate model used by real estate firms throughout the area, Michael focused on building a luxury brokerage with a new, personalized structure; one that encouraged agents to take the initiative and become impassioned by excellence in service. Under Michael’s visionary leadership, Oliver Luxury Real Estate has established itself as a top-producing sales force in the Lake Tahoe, Truckee and Reno area with billions of dollars in sales and one of the highest average sales prices of any brokerage in the United States. For eleven consecutive years, Michael and Darin Vicknair have been the top producing real estate team in Lake Tahoe.
The first agent hired by Oliver Luxury Real Estate, Darin Vicknair is known for his vast knowledge of the market and the nuances of Tahoe lakefront real estate. His expert networking and negotiating skills work to earn you the highest price for your property while helping you to navigate the legal, logistical, and financial elements of transacting in luxury real estate.
