Outstanding service and commitment !


With over 31 years of local knowledge of the Tahoe and Truckee area and over 9 years experience as a Realtor® at Dickson Realty, my goal is to make your mountain home dreams a reality.  As a Tahoe Donner resident, I am happy to show you the finer cabins and properties in the Tahoe-Truckee basin.


My professional expertise also includes 20 years experience in the electronics industry, licensed professional mechanical engineer in California, and electronics in the U.S. Coast Guard (Vietnam era vet). 


I am only just a call away if you have questions or need assistance.


My clients say it best!


“John was straight forward and most importantly dedicated to selling our home. He went way beyond the call of duty and did special things that we believe ultimately resulted in selling our home. We are thankful we worked with John when we did and we recommend him whole heartedly to anyone looking to sell a home at Donner or in the Truckee area. He’s like a bull dog with a mission and his diligence is impressive and effective in selling a home.” Denise Brodt



“John Williamson did an excellent job! He worked very diligently with us to achieve that goal. The rest of the Dickson team also contributed at closing, easing the transition with information and contacts for all the services needed. They and John were also the source of some nice restaurant recommendations that we continue to use!” Bill and Erin Kezer



“John is a very patient realtor. His consultant approach to the real estate sales process is what we admired most. He educated us on the market conditions, inventory available, and helped us solidify our needs. He is a fabulous negotiator and was not only able to secure us the house of our dreams but also negotiated a great value!!” Emmett H. Hall Jr.



“John is patient, persistent and knows the Truckee real estate market. His expertise was key in locating and negotiating for our mountain dream home and we had a lot of fun along the way!” Heather Hall



“Diane and I have been buying and selling personal and investment real estate for over 15 years, and have worked with several agents during that time. John worked with us over the last year and half as we searched for and purchased our first vacation home in Tahoe Donner. We greatly appreciated his patience, perseverance, customer focus and willingness to just do whatever was necessary in a timely fashion (including snow shoeing to view a property during a blizzard!). We would work with John again, happily recommend him to those looking for a home and are happy to have him as a friend.”  Nader and Diane Yassa



 "We came up to Tahoe for a little getaway with no intention of purchasing anything, but we were fortunate enough to run into John Williamson at an Open House who was extremely knowledgeable about the local market. We spotted a property which we fell in love with and John helped us to negotiate a great price, so we decided to jump on the opportunity. Even though we had to leave to go back to Bay Area the following day, he was able to keep up with our hectic schedules and make the whole transaction go smoothly and seamlessly. We are now proud owners of our dream property in Tahoe, thanks to John!" Ron and Rié Collett



We wanted to buy a vacation home and contacted John two years ago. A source of funds for the down payment took longer to materialize. During these two years John did not give up on us and followed with persistence but not pushiness. When we selected a house we wanted, we found him a good professional in determining the right price to offer and following in the difficult negotiations with the sellers. As an owner and operator of apartment buildings in the Bay Area I have dealt with many Agents. He is the one I want to use in the future in my investments in Truckee.   Fereidoon and Sohi Hashemi.
