House of Homes

About Us

House of Homes Realty is family owned and operated by John Doherty, Principle Broker and his partner Karen LaSalle.

The Story of House of Homes Realty

John and Karen first visited the Resort in 2003 with the idea of buying a second home.   After a year of making new friends and enjoying the wonderful amenities of the Running Y Resort and surrounding area they decided to make the Running Y their primary residence and started House of Homes Realty to help others transition to this one-of-a-kind lifestyle.  The snowline elevation and 300+ days of sunshine lend themselves to a mild 4 season climate exposure.
