Gretchen is the absolutely best! We relocated to the area from out of state and she was able to facilitate every facet of the purchase of our new home. She was our eyes and ears on our new construction. She is detailed, communicative, cheerful, dependable and patient. Her dedication doesn’t stop with a sale but has always been ever present 1.5 years later.

We sing her praises loudly and would recommend to anyone!

My family and I lived in California our entire lives until my husband took a job opportunity in Washington. We didn’t want to live there and decided Idaho is the place for us. We needed an amazing realtor and our realtor from Cali recommended Gretchen to us. We met and we knew she was the one to help our Idaho dream become a reality! It was a tricky situation since we were selling our home in Cali and buying in Idaho. There were many freak outs and worrisome nights but through all the chaos Gretchen always answered all questions and brought to our attention things we wouldn’t have known about. She is an amazing and talented Gal! We have been here in Idaho going on almost a year and she often checks in on us and gives awesome recommendations for things to do. If you want an amazing realtor on your side she is the one you want hands down!

Gretchen is the best realtor! She has been my realtor for both my homes and always went above and beyond what was expected. She is extremely knowledgeable and prompt in answering questions and helping in all things buying and selling a home, even if it was to offer recommendations or lead me in the right direction (even after home purchase for all the other confusing aspects of home owning). I highly recommend her as agent if your considering buying or selling in Idaho!
