I KNOW LAND. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree, from The University of Idaho, in Forest Resources & Ecosystem Management and have worked for government, industry and private land owners. I know land from the underground up, including soils, water, wildlife, timber, forest health & more.
I KNOW RANCHES AND RANCHING. As a side venture, in 1999, I became a licensed outfitter and opened Mountain Horse Adventures on Schweitzer Mountain. As the owner of a large string of horses, I maintained large areas of pasture, built and maintained a lot of fencing, control a lot of noxious weeds, etc. I know ranches and ranching very well. Lets go for a ride and see all of the Sandpoint area from above.
I KNOW RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE. As a licensed Realtor I have taken several lengthy courses on Idaho Real Estate, I have passed two difficult exams, I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Idaho Association of Realtors and the Selkirk Association of Realtors too but more importantly I have been trained by the best at Coldwell Banker - Resort Realty here in Sandpoint. I have gained a lot of experience as a Realtor but I also gained some of the best experience as a customer buying a home and later upgrading to another as my family grew, I learned valuable lessons both shopping on my own and using local agents. I learned a good agent is a great benefit both buying and selling properties. Unfortunately I also learned many things not to do as an agent from agents I was unhappy with. I assure you I will put all that I have learned to do and not to do, to use in making you a happy client.
