I have been in the commercial real estate business for 26 years, so when it comes to residential properties, I can be a difficult customer. Joan and her team provided excellent execution on the sale of our Kirkwood condominium. She analyzed the market data well in setting an asking price and then held the line in negotiations to get us there. We were pleased with the outcome.

Sold our home

We met with Joan over the course of a few months to evaluate vacation home properties in Kirkwood. Although in the end we decided to buy elsewhere, we felt that we got outstanding service and knowledge from Joan. She is a long-time local with incredible knowledge of the Kirkwood market. She was able to give us the history of each property we looked at and talk about the potential from a long-range and short-term perspective. It always felt like she had our best interest in mind.

Pyramid Peak Properties handled the sale of our Kirkwood condo and we would highly recommend Joan and her ‘team’. They were informed and thoughtful regarding how to position the sale, on top of the process and very responsive throughout. We would without hesitation use them again.

As a board member for the Sun Meadows 3&4 HOA I can truly say PPP has been exceptional as our property manager!

I rent/lease my home in Kirkwood with Pyramid Peak Properties. Both I and my leasees are currently very pleased with PPPs flexibility and responsiveness. They perform marketing, contract management, cleaning, snow removal, firewood delivery, and other miscellaneous services for my home. They care very much about the renter/leasee customer experience but also take steps to protect the landlord/leasor. I highly recommend them and I am happy to talk to anyone considering their services. Dolan Beckel

Kirkwood Property Owner

I currently rent my property at Kirkwood through Pyramid Peak. I am very happy with their service. They book my unit frequently, always with good guests and take excellent care of the place. PPP has always been extremely helpful, flexible and willing to go the extra mile. I have also rented through Pyramid Peak Properties in the past. I found the guest experience to be excellent. The booking and checkin processes were very clear, the unit was well prepared and clean. PPP was able to facilitate a late checkout so that we could ski a full day on our last day of vacation. Overall a great property management company. Matt Ammann

I can’t say enough to describe the hospitality that the Pyramid Peak Properties family has. I think Family say’s it all. Shawn Taylor

Business relation

I just switched my listing to Joan from another agent, because I have her renting my property and I have been very happy with her services. She was very thorough in the listing process, and I expect that the entire process will be smooth with her. Joan always responds to my e-mails immediately and thoroughly. I would highly recommend her as the agent to go to in the Sierra and Tahoe region. Pete Ngai

Property manage and listed a home

I have used Joan’s services for my vacation rental property and have been very satisfied. I find Pyramid Peak Properties to be very professional and responsive. I have experienced other rental companies in the local market and they did not provide the personal service that Joan provides. I have also used Joan’s services for other real estate needs and find she is a wealth of knowledge and is eager to be of assistance. I would highly recommend Joan Pilar, Pyramid Peak Properties, for any real estate sales and/or rental needs in the Kirkwood and Tahoe market. Karrie Baker

Joan Pilar has managed our rental property in the Lake Tahoe area for several years now. From our first meeting with her we were impressed with her professionalism and thoroughness. She has always been attentive to our needs and promptly taken care on any and all problems that have arisen. We would highly recommend using her services. We now have her selling our home.

Listed our home in Fallen Leaf Lake, CA

I have known Joan for almost 30 years. She has handled our properties here in Kirkwood professionally and her level of service is beyond reproach. We have had several property managers over the years and Joan is by far the best! She has sold our property in Kirkwood for a great price with complete professional attention. Her company far exceeds the competitor.

Charlie Ballantyne

Property manage and sold a single family home in Kirkwood, CA

I have worked with Joan for the last seven years. I’ve owned a home in S. Lake Tahoe for over 25 years and rented on a ski lease basis many of those years to some success but never fully happy, or the ones that were went out of business. I have a partner and neither of use are accessible all the time, plus we live 130 miles away. But I also live another 435 miles away most of the time now. So I was desperate to find someone to manage. Then I found Pyramid Peak Properties on the web. She has overseen the property in a professional manner, arranging repairs when needed and this year we did a major redo. Joan will follow through. My experience is that you can count on her.

Manages our home in South Lake Tahoe

Joan Pilar has far surpassed our expectations. She is professional, responsible and responsive. She treats the management of our property as if it were her own. She is very well connected in the Kirkwood and Tahoe communities. I would not dream of having anybody else manage our Kirkwood property. Jan

Our family has known Joan for years. She helped us look for and buy a townhome in Kirkwood. She did an excellent job and provided excellent advice. After our purchase, she has continued to be readily available for any questions we have had. I would recommend her without reservation.

Detlef Kutzscher

Bought a home

Joan Pilar, with her firm Pyramid Peak Properties, has managed our condominium at Kirkwood, California for the past six years. Prior to her expanding her business to this location, we had essentially all of the property management companies in the area manage our condominium at some time. Without a doubt, Joan and her firm are by far the best and most professional. They routinely inspect the property, including after every rental, make recommendations for improvements to the property and its operation, manage any work that we prefer not to handle directly, and communicate timely and well. We recommend Joan to others with the full confidence that she will perform the same quality of service for them.

Managed and sold my home

Joan has managed my vacation property for 4 years and has been on top of the management of all aspects. I now have my property listed with her and she has been masterful at managing the listing, marketing of the property and negotiations. Her local knowledge of the community is invaluable. She is very approachable and has a fabulous personality. I recommend her highly!

Andrea Edge

Listed and sold my home in Kirkwood, CA 95646

My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Joan Pilar on several vacation rental properties in the South Tahoe area over the past several years. Our experience has always been very good. She is professional, thoughtful and honest. One of our most challenging adventures has been a 25 year wedding anniversary with a large gathering of friends and family. Not only did she arrange our accommodations paying special attention to our many various needs, but she also helped us with ideas for entertaining the troops, and in getting good pricing on a dinner cruise & a driving service so everyone could enjoy without needing to drive back to our lodgings. We look forward to working with Joan again soon. I consequently, use her with all my real estate transactions for advice and expertise.
