Nevada has long attracted Californians – for vacation, second homes, family trusts, and business relocation. The influx of Californians is reshaping Northern Nevada from the sage brush valleys being transforming into sophisticated factories, to the new shops and restaurant popping up in downtown Reno. The ripple effect from Silicon Valley to Reno is gaining speed. Just over Mt. Rose from Reno, Lake Tahoe has always been a favorite spot for those from the San Francisco bay Area, an easy 4 hour ride (in a Tesla) or 30-minute flight away. Many Silicon Valley pioneers have used Nevada’s most-favorable trust laws to protect and grown assets for generation to come – now many of the newer household names from social media giants are using Nevada Trusts for their families and making a new generation’s claim in Lake Tahoe.
