Expertly Designed and Constructed ADU
This beautiful property includes a nearly-finished, fully-permitted Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). With extra high ceilings, skylights, and a smart floorplan, this ADU will be gorgeous when finished. The difficult work is complete-building is constructed, roof and exterior complete, plumbing and electrical roughed in including connected sewer and water supply. The floorplan includes a full bath, kitchen, bedroom, and living space. The next owner can complete the ADU as planned, or could opt to finish as an amazing workshop, artist studio, or incredible home office.

The Yard!
The grounds at Phillippi are amazing! I love the feeling of being apart from everything when arriving at this home-it has a cabin in the woods…

Ten Things I Love - 136 Dover Lane

This edition of Ten Things I love is extra-special because 136 Dover is my personal home. We made some school changes during the pandemic and have been looking for a year for a home in our new school area. It has taken a year to find something that wouldn't leave us heartsick to leave Dover Lane as it is a truly special, livable home that is very hard to leave. I think I could write a hundred things I love about Dover, but will keep it to ten, focusing on the details that might no be obvious from the listing and photos. Enjoy!

   The View. OK. this one is pretty obvious from the photos, but there are details about the view that might not be apparent on first glance. First of all, as a Boise native and a 20-year…

This is a home that captures the heart and imagination--there is so much to love! 

Ten things I love about 7th

Victorian Vibe

Originally built in 1898, this home is an example of the late Queen Anne Victorian style that was popular in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. The characteristic porch, hand-carved front doors, variety of windows and roof line elements are intact and make this home a beautiful example of the era. The siding is cedar, built to last many lifetimes. 


Boise’s north end has long been treasured for its tree-lined streets, historic charm and proximity to Hyde Park, downtown and the Boise foothills trail system. The north end is a large area–some sections of the north end are definitely more north-endy than…

Ten Things I love about Aspen Court

We've just listed 620 Aspen Court in Nampa, Idaho. This sweet home has been lovingly enjoyed by the current owner and is ready for its next chapter. Here are then things I love about this property. 

The backyard.

This home has a larger lot than comparable homes for the price, and that’s great (who doesn’t love a big, shady back yard?), but what I really love about this yard is the thoughtful placement of trees, shrubs and garden spaces as well as the unique varieties of plantings in addition to the patio and large grassy space.

The Jujube and plum trees.

 I love trees—we have added all kinds of flowering and fruiting trees to our property and enjoying them bloom in the spring and change colors in…

I am so excited to bring 6455 W Biathlon to the market in Eagle, Idaho! This home is a wonderful mix of beautiful design and incredibly livable location. There is so much to love about this home--I thought I'd share ten things I especially love. 


This is a dream kitchen! The quartizite and concrete counters, imported hardware and designer lighting create a kitchen space that is elegant and incredibly current. I love the Wolf appliance package that includes the top-rated six-burner range and high-tech double ovens. The built-in Sub Zero fridge top-of-the-line and adds to the feeling of luxury and elegance. The farmhouse sink is as charming as it is functional and the cabinetry and finishes are luxurious and cutting-edge.

The first 3 months of the year saw a reduction in same month sales; April changed that trend. Even though we had 74% fewer properties available, we sold 14% more units in April 2021 than we did in April 2020.  Pending contracts – contracts that are executed but not yet closed – were also up 16% over the end of last April, promising the continuation of a strong market.

Although the number of properties sold in the first 4 months this year were 3% lower than the comparable period of last year, the average price was an astounding 31% higher and the median price was 28% higher for sales during that period.

One surprising continuing trend is that the price per square foot of resale homes is about 6% higher than the price per square foot of new…
