The Snake River StampedeHave you ever wanted to go to an old fashioned rodeo?   Well Nampa is host to one of the top 10 professional rodeos in the United States.  It has history going back to 1911.  It started as a harvest festival.   We of the Treasure Valley know that we live in the wild wooly ...
Wow this is a wonderful piece that will help any cat owner move.  Moving is stressful for anybody but it is really hard to explain what is happening to your kitty.   I might even print this out and give to my clients!  Moving is one of the most stressful experiences in life for anyone, but especi...
I consider myself a world traveler.  I have been many places.  Both in the United States and other countries.   And I have to admit the Boise airport is wonderful (for an airport).   We just have one long terminal.  None of the scary transfers where you do not have enough time to get places.   Yo...
I moved to the Boise Bench in 1991.  When we outgrew our home we bought the house next door in 1999.  Initially we bought here because it was in walking distance to Boise State University.  My husband was working there as a professor in mathematics and I was a lecturer in chemistry.  We also were...
Bogus Basin is just 16 miles north of Boise.  It is not just for skiing.  There are great summer activities!When I first got to Boise Bogus was mostly just for skiing and winter activities.  I always go up  for at least one trip during the summer.  I would just hike along the road with my family ...
The Treasure Valley is an arid climate.   If you do not put water on plants you have sagebrush and cheat  grass.   This was hammered into me when I was house-hunting in 1991.  We saw 6 houses, 3 of which had dead lawns.  We were new and looking for our first home.   Many of us have sprinkler sys...
We took the listing on April 9.  We closed it on September 25.  My partner, Bill Taylor, brought this one in.  The owner had it briefly listed with another agent but that other agent did not give her copies of the paper work and lowered the price of the home without asking the owner.Our client li...
This summer has been one of self-discipline.   I have been very busy with real estate and the rest of my world.   Real estate wise I have not been prospecting but me and my partner have had 4 pendings through most of the summer.  On Thursday we were briefly up to 6.    On the rest of the world my...
This has been a great year so far.  I have sold over 2 mil and it is only July.  My sorce of business is now repeat clients, friends and referrals.   This has been very exciting for me.  I sometimes wonder whether it will dry up but I think not.  People need new houses as their situation changes....
Today my partner pulled in a listing.  The owner is a friend of his sisters.   We went to the home that had been marketed for 135 days as a short sale.   The pictures on this listing were awful.  The home had been shown exactly twice in these 135 days.  After 135 days on the market there was no p...
