Today, The Tahoe Baines Group is a multi-generational partnership, continuing its 30+ year reputation of luxury-minded service to all buyers, sellers, and investors with discretion and trust.
Recognized for his commitment to excellence, Kirk has repeatedly earned awards for surpassing career benchmarks through his skill, integrity, and negotiation finesse. “Clients can count on my professionalism, reliability, and creative problem-solving. I maintain transparent communication throughout the process with attention to detail and strive to exceed expectations.”
A self-proclaimed “Techie,” Kirk utilizes advanced marketing strategies to showcase a property’s distinctive features. At the same time, buyers and investors rely on his deep community knowledge to locate under-the-radar purchase opportunities. Partnering with Sotheby’s International Relocation Service, Kirk confidently refers buyers and sellers, making your next move in any state or country a reality.
Upon securing his degree from the University of Oregon (Go Ducks), Kirk started his real estate career in Salt Lake City before returning to Lake Tahoe, where he resides with his partner Taylyn in Stateline, Nevada. In his free time, you’ll find this avid golfer ripping down ski slopes, mountain biking, and boating. His extensive travels throughout Europe and Asia bring a refreshing multicultural awareness and dry humor to the table, while his even-keeled nature provides clients with peace of mind.
