idaho: Sheltered life Wow what a storm - 07/24/14 05:21 PM
Being tucked away in a dense forest I am luck to be sheltered from wind.  I very rarely get more than a light breeze and I like it that way.  Here if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes or go 5 miles and it will change.   Yesterday North Idaho was hit by a duzy.  The sun was peaking through the clouds when I  walked in to the supermarket in Sandpoint Idaho.  When I walked out it was in a torrential downpour.  I headed out of town to Hope Idaho and there were branches leaves, and debris all over … (3 comments)

idaho: To landscape or not to, a picture is worth a thousands ideas. - 07/21/14 09:47 AM
Landscaping can make a world of difference or change the entire look of a home. Whether you are sprucing up the curb appeal to sell a home, or just making your home your own, landscaping will add so much to the quality of your home and your life.
 
Here are a few before and after examples of landscaping projects.

idaho: Smoke over Idaho skies - 07/21/14 07:57 AM
For the last few days we have had smoke in the air over Idaho.  It seems that most of Washington and parts of Oregon and Idaho are on fire right now.  My thoughts and prayers go out to those people in these fire areas.

idaho: Can I get a loan on a flat roofed adobe in Alaska? - 07/12/14 10:52 PM
 
 
Everyone has a vision of their ideal home.  It might be a large colonial, a small cottage, or a soaring post and beam.  Here in Northern Idaho tucked away in the trees or sitting on the shores of a lake you can find just about everything from a castle to a treehouse.
 
 
Every area has a style of home that has a hard time making it through the underwriting process.  I had a bank in Arizona that simply did not know what to do with a log home and told me "Nobody lives in those".  I imagine there … (2 comments)

idaho: Why won't the lender just give me a list of what documents they want? - 06/02/14 06:05 PM
Everyone hates going through the mortgage lending process.  It is frustrating, it takes time and effort and it feels like your lender has to know what you ate for lunch and what you paid for it. 
One of the biggest complaints I hear from people about their lenders is that they are constantly asking for a new document.  "Why don't they just give me a list of what they want"  Well I can't really answer this one because I am not a lender.  I can however let you know how to relieve the  frustration and be prepared for anything they ask for. … (43 comments)

Congrats Melissa on starting out with a bang.
 
The topic was whats it take to be a successful agent these days.
 
Well the first thing that popped into my head was to get listings.  WRONG  While this is an important task that we do in real estate, it is not what makes or breaks us.  There are plenty of agents that only work with buyers only.  I put on my thinking cap and tried to figure out at least one of the most important things that leads … (2 comments)
