Sierra Vacation Home Rentals Management Team

Katherine Thomas

With over 35 years of real estate and property management experience, Kathy Thomas is the Broker and Owner of Sierra Vacation Home Rentals, a local family owned and operated vacation rental business. Kathy first fell in love with Bass Lake after moving to the area in 2010. An avid hiker, she prefers to be traveling along a dirt trail or kayaking on the lake during her free time. Having a connection with nature and family are the two driving forces she incorporates in her life on both a personal and professional basis. When Kathy first opened Sierra Vacation Home Rentals in 2011 she hoped to build a stable business for her family. She had no idea just HOW BIG it would grow—with a full time staff of six as well as over 60 local vendors she not only is building stability for her family but for countless others in the community.

Creating memories that last a lifetime is Kathy’s goal for all of her guests. Vacations are how we build connection with our loved ones amidst our busy lives—to be part of that magic is an honor. Kathy's commitment is to work hard for her clients and her guests, taking personal care to help thousands of individuals and families each year as they visit the area.
