Early morning walks on a deserted Mainstreet of any town can be special.  The soft morning sun throwing shadows unseen by most.  The quiet almost surreal for any city or town.  Evenings have their own special pull with the noises of the people while they go about their business or play.   Sandpoi...

North Idaho is used to changing weather.  Of course we all know the ole saying for such a place as North Idaho "If you don't like the weather...stick around for 5 minutes"  I am a big fan of weather and all it has to offer.  Blistering hot days to blizzards, rain, winds, mild.  In fact the more e...

Old Highway 95 coming into Bonners Ferry from the north still sits in tact above the new highway.  The difference now is that it is strictly for pedestrian traffic.  Bonners Ferry Rotary has taken over the 1.5 mile stretch of pavement.

I must apologize.  I do my best to be straight forward and honest with information on my listings.  I recently added a new listing and was very anxious to advertise and tell people about this lovely home and shop in Sandpoint.  One of the really nice benefits to this home was being secluded and p...

It is seldom I share jokes, meme's, etc.  This video was sent from my Keller Williams CEO / Team leader, Ben Fairfield,  a couple weeks back. This speaker is passionate.  I have put this link in my library and view it at least once a week.  Perhaps you have heard the story he tells.  I had not he...

Lovely home located only 10 miles north of the Schweitzer Ski Cutoff where you find Home Depot, Walmart, Banking, Grocery Stores, and much more.  Privately set back from the road with trees cleared around the home to make for your own meadow like setting.  Elaborate entrance landscaping and plush...

When moving from Lake Tahoe area to North Idaho one of the goals I set for myself was to give back more to the community I was living in.  When asked to join Rotary International Bonners Ferry, I thought it to be the perfect start.  One of the first items to impress me is what Rotary Internationa...
