 Selling a home that you love can be bitter sweet but as the chapters of our lives change, sometimes it is the best thing possible.  Congratulations Robin for selling the little home in Bonners Ferry that was so good to you.  The community will miss having you right here, but are so happy that this sale will give you a little breathing room and a few options.  I feel so lucky that you picked me to help you sell this home when you are friends with literally every body in town.  Thank you for your trust in me and for spreading good words about me to everyone you know.   I do appreciate you!!!!

It finally sold!  This lot was with a fellow agent for several years before I got it and it is officially the longest listing I ever had.  While it had all the makings for a great homesite it was in an area that just wasn't having any new construction.  This was just one of those properties that needed that special person to fall in love with it. Each and every time the listing was expiring, I was just sure my seller would drop me and each time he would say he knew how hard I was working on it and he hoped this would be the year.  This wonderfully loyal client stuck it out through thick and thin and finally sold this lot.Water, gas, phone, and electric to the property line. Almost 1 acre with Awesome rim and mountain views, overlooks mill and valley and no one can ever build behind you ...

 The idaho real estate market is HOT right now.   Rain Silverhawk currently has 13 homes and land in escrow.  WOW!   We met with some past clients yesterday and my gal made a comment that she went online to see what we were up to.  She said I found sales from all corners of the map you guys sure do sell alot of stuff.  I got to thinking about it and not only have all the past sales been spread over Bonner County, Boundary County and Kootenai county but the 13 pending escrows we have right now are spread all over.With all these sales comes the need for more listings.  If you are in North Idaho and wanting to sell your home, land or commercial building please give me a call.  I sold off our inventory and need more homes to SELL.

Bonners Ferry Bannana Belt with 16 hours of sunlight during summer months.I often hear from people that Bonners Ferry Idaho is so far north and close to Canada that it must be hard to grow things. What a treat to know that Bonners Ferry is a Bananna belt. No we don't grow bananas or oranges here but just about everything else. Bonners Ferry actually has a surprisingly "long" growing season with a zone 4 rating and an average of 128 frost-free days, due to its relatively low elevation of 1,790 feet. Boundary county is bisected by the Kootenai River, a major tributary of the Columbia River. The river’s course lies between two great mountain ranges creating this agricultural rich valley growing such diverse crops as hops, wheat, canola , potatoes, fruits, berries, flowers and nursery trees...

Luck Can Still Be a Factor,  No Matter How Good You Are I have a tree located between two homes in Naples Idaho.  It has been been dead for a while now.  I have been calling tree services, loggers, tree toppers to get rid of this tree.  Always the same story of how long they have been doing this business and no problem.  A couple have actually come out, only to decline the work.  Good ole boys no doubt.  I am interested in getting the work done now, not what they have done in the past.   Finally got a guy that said "been doing this for years and I can get it done." Difference was he actually showed up and did not hesitate in letting me know this could get done at the quoted price.   Why do I say Luck Can Still Be a Factor?,  No Matter How Good You Are?  The section showing how rotten th...

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bonners Ferry Idaho - A must see  With all the gorgeous mountain ranges, rivers, lakes and wildlife in North Idaho one would have to think the author of this post must be crazy.  And yet it is true.  The Department of Motor Vehicles, Bonners Ferry Idaho is a must see! I remember even the 'small town' of Truckee California a trip to the DMV could be a 2 hour ordeal.  San Fernando Valley area in California nothing less than a nightmare, along with Reno Nevada area.   Not so in Bonners Ferry Idaho and Sandpoint Idaho.  The pictures below depict a normal day.  Open for business.  So when moving to Bonners Ferry or Sandpoint area you WILL have to go to the Department of Motor Vehicles. What you won't have to do is wait hours in line.  The girls are always happy ...

Ahhh the 'Secret' Mineral Oils that cure all ? I have a tenant that I am trying to get out.  Trying to decide on proper way to make that a separate post.  This post is about another Secret Potion answer to yet another frustrating issue most likely all of us have faced at one time or another.  Mice.   Once again this tip comes from Rain Silverhawk while we were on the way to set signs for a new listing of hers.  (Kudos Rain!)  I mentioned the condition of the house that is being 'kinda' moved out of.  While mice in the forest or country setting is not unheard of the extent to which this house has been allowed to get to, is absurd at best.  Rain proceeds to tell me that Peppermint Oil on cotton balls will rid the worst of the 'Mice' circumstances.  This morning I could not remember if it ...

Micro Managing !  -   A style from the past, except in maybe  Naples Idaho Give me a job and trust me to do it correctly or do not ask me to do it at all.  From the complicated to the basic.  Were I not competent enough to get it done I most likely would not be the one doing the work.  Apparently there are those in North Idaho that did not get the memo or classes.  That would explain why Micro Management is a style from the past, except Naples Idaho. A healthy snow storm came through the North Idaho area starting yesterday afternoon.  Heavier than normal snow accumulation on the valley floors from Bonners Ferry to Sandpoint and Coeur D' Alene. Anywhere from 1' to 2' or more depending on your location.  In Naples I started snow blowing the drives which were showing about 15 inches or mor...
