Seasons of Sandpoint, Idaho - A Photographic Journal: February 2012, 1st Edition

By
Services for Real Estate Pros

This series of blog entries features the various seasons in and around Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint, North Idaho, Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, and Lake Pend Oreille have been featured in the national news repeatedly over the last several years. Autumn of 2011 found Sandpoint, Idaho being voted America's Most Beautiful Small Town by Rand McNally, and in the winter of 2011/2012 Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort was named the Best Ski Resort of the Season byUSA Today/Rand McNally.

Real Estate in Sandpoint has been on the rise approximately 7% a year for three years, much in part due to the decrease in pricing. That being said, I have had some success in the area of waterfront sales in Sandpoint finding great values for my clients.

I am Gary Lirette, REALTOR® in Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene. I am also the host of the North Idaho Business radio show and the North Idaho Arts & Adventure radio show broadcast on the North Idaho Talk Radio Network. Locally, we are heard on KSPT 1400 AM in Bonner and Kootenai counties and KBFI 1450 AM in Boundary County and Canada.

These pictures are part of my hobbies of hiking, climbing, and biking. My pictures were featured prominently in this year's Sandpoint Visitor's Guide, and I have contributed pictures to all area Chambers of Commerce. This particular series features the Torchlight Parade and Fireworks that happened at Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, January 14th, 2012.

When you are looking for a REALTOR®, you should want a local business owner and someone who is very connected to the community. Few here have interviewed over 1,200 business leaders, characters, charities, politicos, etc. My experience with the hidden gems of North Idaho, as well as intricate knowledge of this slice of paradise makes me your logical choice.

I hope you enjoy the pictures in this series.

Thanks for the photos. My wife has decided she likes sweet red wines, since red wines have a 'health benefit' and the whites don't. I doubt sweet reds are on a wine experts list?

There are some good, sweeter red wines, but not to my taste. However, that being said, tell her to try Sweet Bliss. It is made by Pacific Rim and this is a great winery, scoring big points with their wines.

Another offering would be Lambrusco, which is slightly effervescent.

Fully bubbly are the Sparkling Shiraz wines from Australia. Shingleback comes to mind.

Good luck.

Gary - Sometimes when I look at your pictures, I think I'm entering the mystical realm.  The last 4 of those posted here, fall into that place.  Wonderful stuff!
