Company Profile 

If you've spend even one day in Northern Nevada,  you've heard the name Lance Gilman. He is known for success in large money real estate deals. Simply put, he and his team are "closers". Lance was involved in the Sierra Sage Estate deal, which was the first residential sale over $1 million in Reno. He was the broker who, with his partners, developed and sold out the South Meadows, Double Diamond Ranch in South Reno. In South Meadows, he closed deals with Lockheed, IGT and some of the largest residential home developers in the area, among many others. Lance closed deals for a client buying massive ranch properties east of Reno, the Asamera Ranch, and the famous McCarran Ranch. This later was developed in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, the largest industrial park in the world. And of course, Lance recently closed the Tesla Motors deal, which Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval termed, "The Deal of the Century".

When you come from a family of real estate agents and homebuilders, something funny happens. You take enjoyment out of connecting a family with their own piece of the American Dream. I LOVE real estate, but I LOVE helping you transition to the next phase of your life even more. We all know that it isn’t just a house, it’s a fresh start, and it’s yours. Real estate runs in my family, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. When I am not connecting families, with long lasting foundations, I am involved in the Northern Nevada Autism Network. I believe that happiness doesn’t come from what we get, but rather what we give. I am a full time, dedicated REALTOR® that is also an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®). I specialize in homebuyers and earned a Top 25 Spot as a Producer in the Elko Association of Realtors® before relocating to the beautiful Reno area in 2014. Most importantly, I specialize in the needs of my client’s, as that is what truly matters.
Before relocating to the Reno area, I started my Real Estate career in Elko, NV. I began my education while working as a Poker Room Manager in Elko for 2 years. I transitioned to being a full time Realtor® in 2012 and quickly became a top producer within the area. While in Elko, I was the only representative of HUD homes in Northeastern Nevada, allowing me to travel all over the state and falling in love with all Nevada has to offer. In 2014 I relocated in to the Reno area to further expand my Real Estate career. Since that time, I have helped opened and sell a successful local shop, been able to continue my education for my Associate’s degree, and have now joined one of the most elite Real Estate Company’s. In teaming up with L. Lance Gilman Real Estate, I am given more local knowledge and resources than any other company can give me. I am blessed to be apart of this company and to be able to provide you with all your Real Estate needs!
