It doesn't seem like thirty years.....  It is hard to believe that I was just 22...   But we are in it for the long haul.   We  have had ups and downs but in the end we always know we are each others best friends.  Sometimes you need to step back and figure out what is important.   I did a lo...

One of the things I love about living in Boise, Idaho is the beautiful mountains and wilderness around us.  We are a bit isolated in terms of nearest cities but we have outdoor activities galore.   For example just 2 hours north of Boise is the beautiful mountain resort, McCall Idaho! My first ex...

I have a great new listing in Meridian, Idaho coming up.  The house itself needs work but....

After 73 days from our accepted offer.   After a terrible ordeal for my client refinancing his current home.  After 2 extensions.  After a TV being dumped in the back yard.  After problems with the inspection (because the heater didn't work and it was freezing outside).  After the client leav...

We took in a stray.  Unfortunately my cat hates him.  He has been hanging around our neighborhood for years.   I know who his daddy must of been because he has extra toes.  He is a very handsome creature who our housemate has tamed.  The lady next door used to feed him but she has dementia and do...

Sometimes before closing a buyer starts to feel ownership of the home.  Let me make it clear.  UNTIL the home is Signed, Funded and RECORDED you, the BUYER do not own it.  If you want to fix something you need to get the SELLERS premission!   You also should not be on the property without permiss...

Every so often it happens.  I settle all my buyers and all my sellers.  This is actually a really good thing.   After a bit I realize that all my clients are pending.  That is when this real estate agent is seeking clients.  I am pretty sure I could handle 4 transactions a month without needing a...
