That slogan, “5 Star Service Every Step of the Way” isn’t just a slogan. This is an actual quote from one of my clients’ Google reviews, of which I am very proud. So proud, I decided to make it my core principle and part of my mission statement. It means something to me and it’s how I want my clients to feel. My hope is, after working with me, you will agree 🙂
AS A LOCAL REALTOR AND ASSOCIATE BROKER, I SPECIALIZE IN COEUR D’ALENE REAL ESTATE, SPECIFICALLY THE NORTH SHORE CORRIDOR. The North Shore Corridor (yes, I created this term) is made up of the east/west stretch starting south of highway 90 to the north shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene and the Spokane River. These neighborhoods include Downtown Coeur d’Alene, mid-town Coeur d’Alene, the Garden District, Sanders Beach, Fort Grounds, Riverstone, Bellerive, the new Atlas Waterfront, and Mill River.
I also handle the surrounding areas including Post Falls, Hayden, Hayden Lake, Dalton Gardens, Rathdrum, Harrison, Spirit Lake, Athol and most areas within Kootenai County and northern Idaho.

A Little More About My Backstory
I am an entrepreneur at heart. I have owned businesses since 1996. I moved to the area in 2006 with my family including my three amazing kids and have never looked back.
I have found my happy place here in Cd’A. I grew up in California but made a conscious decision to pursue a slower pace of life with more outdoor activities in a family-friendly atmosphere. I found that here in Coeur d’Alene! I truly love where I live and am happy to share with others.
I would be honored if you would allow me to help you find your happy place!

My favorite client compliments

I originally started looking at homes last summer with Michelle. Things were very busy in real estate, yet she always made time to show me homes & make recommendations. We looked at a LOT of homes, and she was patient each time I felt I hadn't quite found the right one yet. When she began building her team she introduced me to Jared, yet stayed in close touch and I knew I could always call on her if need be. She and Jared make an excellent team and complement each other well!

Michelle was fantastic to work with. She went above and beyond by doing her homework and finding us an excellent home. She is very knowledgeable and honest about property desirability, school districts, etc. 5 Star Service every step of the way.
