Leadership

Our culture at Sierra Sotheby's International Realty is built upon breaking through the status quo to create new conversations for brokers within the markets it serves and fostering a progressive culture to cultivate change.

The Power of a Team


As one of the most respected and successful real estate firms in the Lake Tahoe Region, we take pride in our leadership team’s commitment to integrity, professionalism and exceptional service. We are dedicated to ensuring that all team members and brokers share in our vision.

Peter Strand

President of Sierra Sotheby’s International

“What satisfies me more than anything else is an agent’s growth and success under our company banner.”

Clearly growth oriented, Peter Strand is a big picture guy with a strong work ethic. Peter’s leadership style balances intensity with patience. His team building skills are powered by the values attributed to a well-trained athlete making the company a leader in the Tahoe market. He believes that high performance discipline—combined with ongoing education and deliberate growth—fuel evolution. Skilled at recognizing talent, Peter knows how to inspire a team by creating an atmosphere where expectations are high but are equally met with encouragement and an appreciation for authenticity. A visionary and doer, Peter teaches by example. “I’m the guy that will be there at the end of the day.”

Peter’s real estate experience has been defined predominantly by real estate franchising intermixed with team leadership opportunities. Peter has more than 25 years of residential sales and brokerage experience including a stint in technology consulting. He boasts a proven track record in managing and growing businesses, with past experience in leading a large multi-office brokerage from $6.5 million in commissions to $11 million in just over two years. Drawn by the lifestyle and beauty that is Tahoe, in late 2013, Peter accepted the challenge of leading the growth of Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty.

Peter proudly hails from Minnesota where he still finds time to attend to his lake cabin. He finds enjoyment in alpine skiing and the new challenge of Crossfit. Not surprisingly, Peter takes great pride in his family—their personal excellence encourages Peter to try new things and look at life differently. Immersing himself in every endeavor—whether personal or professional—Peter is consistently poised at the edge of envisioning something magnificent.

You’ll find Peter sitting still eventually. Winter or summer, he’ll be the last one on the mountain watching the sun set.

TESTIMONIALS
"Having an entire support team behind every transaction has been an incredibly valuable part of my listing process and has truly helped shape the positive relationships I have with savvy sellers. Sellers feel confident knowing that they’re not just relying on one agent to market and sell their home, they have a whole team working on their behalf. The Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty brand is more powerful than anything an agent could do on their own to market and sell listings. My business has increased over 50% since I joined Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty a year ago.”
