Jessica Ferguson

Originally from Alexandria, VA, Jessica first came to the Lake Tahoe area in the Fall of 2002. Initially attracted to the area for its outdoor recreation, she soon fell in love with Truckee and knew that it was where she wanted to be permanently.

In 2003 she began working at Boice Countryside, REALTORS®, now known as Boice O’Neal Realty. She started out as the marketing coordinator for the brokerage but decided in 2005 that she was ready to move into sales. Soon thereafter, she joined forces with The North Woods Group, comprising of 5 other realtors, including our full-time webmaster who works daily to promote Group listings and capture buyer leads.

Jessica has vast knowledge of the multiple various communities in Truckee & North Lake Tahoe, and often finds herself dividing time between Tahoe Donner ℠, Donner Summit, Squaw Valley, and Lake Tahoe's North & West shores. In her spare time, Jessica enjoys skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and travel. This area offers so many wonderful activities and adventures, that it’s no wonder that “selling” property here comes naturally and is a true joy!

Bruce Watkins

Raised on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Bruce grew up enjoying the benefits of a resort community and its distinct approaches to life. Bruce spent 17 years as a youth minister reaching out to and caring for young people. He is a family man with 3 children and 5 grandchildren.

Bruce is experienced and well trained, with a business degree, a Real Estate Broker’s License, and coursework in business law. As a REALTOR®, he brings these experiences, training, and values to real estate. Blending his knowledge of the revitalizing benefits of a resort community with a strong desire to give personal service, Bruce has his own unique style.

Bruce has lived in Tahoe for 29 great years, moving to the Tahoe area in 1984 and has been a realtor since 1990. He first resided in Squaw Valley for 14 years where he developed a passion for skiing, then relocated to Tahoe Donner ℠, the premier resort community of the Sierra.

Bruce continues to enjoy the recreational activities of Tahoe, both summer and winter, while working full time as a successful real estate agent. Bruce finds enjoyment in downhill skiing (involved with the Squaw Valley Ski School for 20 years), golf (with a 12 golf index), bowling (he has been the commissioner of local league for 13 years), and Fantasy Football league.

Living near Northern California wine country, it’s not surprising Bruce has a fondness for good wine, especially Pinots and Cabs. Bruce’s favorite travel destination is Italy, his favorite city is Venice (although he says San Francisco is great too!), and his favorite Island is Maui.

David Wright

David Wright is a native Californian who moved to the Sierra from Santa Cruz. He was a founding member with North Woods Realty, the first office in Tahoe Donner ℠ back in '91. Being from the coast, his passions remain surfing, windsurfing, sailing his 34' sloop "SELKIE", Salmon fishing, SCUBA and free diving. A background in marine biology and a SCUBA instructor go with the territory. David served 4 years as a Carpenter's Apprentice, achieving his "Journeyman Card", then his General Contractor's License. As a contractor, he specialized in beachfront homes and Victorian renovations. He built a loyal clientele with his "Quality oriented attention to detail and superior customer service" reputation.

That standard remains his banner as a REALTOR®.

David is an avid backcountry skier, and an "A" team member of Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue. Spring, summer and fall will find him hiking, mountain biking, golfing, fly fishing, kayaking, windsurfing and getting to his boat when time allows.

"Since I was 17 I have been involved in the housing industry - literally from the ground up. I am not your typical "salesman". In fact, I do not consider myself a salesman at all. I am an expert on functional & pleasing designs for our climate. I brilliantly and honestly market the positive attributes of properties I have listed. If buying from me, you will become acquainted with terms such as "micro climate" "snow load" "sun exposure" "snow shed from the roof" and "winter access". I match clients with wholesome properties. Making money is a by-product of what I do, not the focus - the focus is taking care of my clients."
David and his wife Susie live in Tahoe Donner ℠.
