Kane Schaller, broker and co-owner of Dickson Realty Truckee, was named the 2009 Realtor of the Year by the Tahoe Sierra Board of Realtors. The selection is based on Schaller’s outstanding business achievements, his ability to provide trusted leadership by promoting professionalism and ethics and his local involvement designed to ensure a vibrant community.

“Receiving this award is truly an honor and having my mother, who was the 2008 Realtor of the Year recipient, present this recognition makes it even more special,” Schaller said. “This award also reflects on the entire Dickson Realty Truckee office and what we’ve accomplished this year in working with our clients and providing a competitive edge for buyers and sellers allowing all of us to excel in today’s market economy.”

Schaller is a graduate of University of California, Los Angeles where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics. Returning to his hometown of Truckee, Calif., after graduating, he joined Schaller Family Real Estate after obtaining his agents license in 2001. Schaller received his broker’s license in 2004.  As an active community member, Schaller serves as the community service chair for Truckee Noon Rotary, the program chair and president-elect for the Lake Tahoe Music Festival and is involved with the Tahoe Forest Hospital Leadership Council and Truckee Unified School District Advisory Council.
