Homes & Real Estate Since 1991.
August 11, 2017. What's New Here...I hope cooler weather!...
- Mortgage rates hit a 6-week low this week, averaging 3.9% for a 30-yr fixed, according to Freddie Mac's weekly survey.
- What happened in July? See my Market Monitor, now updated to Aug 1st, for monthly updates on the Boise Metro housing markets; current trends and 10-year history on home sales, prices, supply & demand.
- See my latest Newsletter with quarterly updates & analysis on local housing market trends. Boise home prices jumped 9-11% in Q2!

I help Home Buyers... Don't let the house pick- Choose me as your buyer's rep first. The seller pays me (almost always) to be your buyer's agent & advocate to guide you through the home buying process. An experienced broker's personal attention from start to finish, always serving & protecting your interests and working with your schedule, both evenings and weekends.
Before any Realtor can show you homes, they need to know you are qualified. I can refer you to good local lenders for financing & pre-approval. Most importantly, I help you search, view & evaluate all homes for sale in your price range. I can provide real-time access to MLS listings with instant emails on new/reduced/back-on listings that match your criteria and a free website dedicated to your search, allowing you to sort, save & map your favorites. Just tell me what you are looking for and you'll never miss a listing. Call or text me now at 208-866-3481.
I help Investors too... Yes, the Boise housing market is tight, but money is so cheap, making it a VERY good time to invest in real estate for long-term appreciation, tax shelter and positive cash flow. I have fix-up skills, own rentals and have helped many investors buy rentals and fixers. Ask me for the best income & fixer properties or a sample cash flow/investment analysis on a home for rental.
I help Sellers... It's still prime time to sell when the most buyers are looking, although demand typically fades late summer. It could not be more of a seller's market with such low housing supply, making it a GREAT time to sell.
I want your listing. My years of experience will help to prepare your home for sale, price your home right, get maximum exposure in the MLS and the highest possible price. I am happy to provide market research and advice to help you decide when to sell, refinance or remodel. Contact me for a free consultation, market analysis & estimate of proceeds.
Repeat Clients... Thank you for trusting in me as your Realtor. I am happy to give free advice, market price updates and reduced listing fees on any property you bought through me. I want to forge a life-long relationship with you as your go-to real estate guy in the Boise area. Your endorsement on this website would mean a lot to me- see About Me/Endorsements in the top menu. Scroll to the bottom of my Endorsements to leave one.
What do those letters behind my name stand for?
To me they mean quality, commitment & experience. Actually, they are designations I have earned from the National Association of Realtors: ABR = Accredited Buyer's Representative, CRS = Certified Residential Specialist (Did 75+ transactions in 5 years), GRI = Graduate of Realtor Institute. Last I checked, only 14 out of 1800+ Boise Realtors hold all three designations.
I serve SW Idaho: Mainly the Treasure Valley- Ada & Canyon counties; Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Star, Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell & Middleton. I have experience helping buyers purchase homes from Payette to Glenns Ferry, Emmett to Idaho City, Marsing to Horseshoe Bend.
