We love the great people of Idaho and are grateful for the incredible quality of life to be found here and the good community that we have. We live in Meridian and love that we have a new temple here. We also appreciate the great schools (and variety of school choice, Charter Schools, etc.), available family activities and the strength of the church in this part of the Lord's Vineyard. We love doing family history, hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, white water rafting, boating, snow skiing and enjoying the hot springs out near Black Canyon Reservoir.

Agent Comments:

Jeff has worked in the Idaho Real Estate industry since 2002, first as an appraiser, then he obtained his Real Estate License in 2004. After working for two other local brokerages Jeff could see great need for a brokerage that was truly client centric and who provided authentic client representation and someone who had an excellent working knowledge of the many various technical dimensions of real estate, especially valuation. The years Jeff spent in the construction and real estate appraisal businesses gave him excellent knowledge to serve and protect his clients, knowledge that most agents don't have.

Due to his diligent practice of real estate Jeff has achieved significant business relationships, resources and developed many long-lasting friendships with hundreds of satisfied clients as well as other local & national real estate professionals. He is committed to high ethical standards in all his relationships.

Jeff offers full-time dedication to the real estate profession; a level of commitment that places client interests first; the ability to both listen and hear; a strong sense of accountability; up to the minute knowledge of the local market, contributing factors and current trends; fair and professional treatment of all parties in a transaction, superior negotiation skills; flexibility and an intelligent, creative approach to negotiation conflicts. Since 2002 Jeff has appraised or sold more than 1000 properties in the Boise Idaho real estate market.

Contact Jeff

Highly recommend

By Guy and Tracy Adams May 2020

Jeff did a great job helping us find our new home. We relocated to Meridian from out of state and found Jeff's profile online. We were impressed by his experience in the Meridian real estate market. After sending him a note, Jeff reached out and scheduled a call with us and spent the time to get to know us and in particular what our housing needs were. The morning we actually met with Jeff and started looking at homes, it wasn't long before we found our house. However, we quickly discovered that there was already a full price offer on the home. Jeff reached out multiple times to the listing agent to discover what we could do to tip the scales in our favor in a competitive bidding situation. We were very happy later that same day to learn our offer had been accepted. Jeff continued to work hard all the way through the process. Like others have mentioned, I felt not only did we find a great house but through the process Jeff became a friend. I highly recommend Jeff for any of your real estate needs in the Boise/Meridian area.

My wife and I could not be happier

By Tyler McKinnon May 2018

As first time home-buyers, my wife and I could not be happier that we found Jeff. We are fairly picky, and we even completely changed the type of property we were looking for multiple times mid-way through the process. I’m sure that’s a little frustrating for a realtor. But through it all, Jeff was nothing but patient, helpful and very honest. He gave many helpful suggestions along the way (did I mention that we were first-time home-buyers? … we knew nothing about the process) and genuinely had our best interest at heart. We will be contacting Jeff again the next time we need to buy or sell real estate in the Meridian area.

I’ve never worked with any realtor the caliber of Jeff

By Pam Briggs December 2017

I’ve purchased several homes over the years, but I’ve never worked with any realtor the caliber of Jeff. They far exceed their goals of providing the best possible service, demonstrating flawless integrity and assuring that you get the results you desire. To that end, they make it their mission to meet your needs by asking pertinent questions, taking the time to listen well, and doing everything they can to make the process run smoothly. They provide a timeline of what to expect as you interact with the mortgage company, the escrow company and the home inspector, and gladly attend related meetings to support you. Furthermore, they are consistently kind, good natured, accessible, and helpful, which makes it all a very enjoyable experience. I can’t say enough good about Jeff.

A huge help to us!

By Spencer & Michele McIntyre March 2017

Jeff and his team have been such a huge help to us. In 2011 they helped my husband and I find a house and buy it. They helped all along the way. Jeff was honest with us with every question we had, and really listened to what we wanted. He showed us houses that weren't at the highest of our budget but in the middle. He helped us find the best starter home for us that we could start a family, and in an area that we wanted and was close to family. Three and half years later (2015) Jeff came to the rescue again in helping us sell our home. Jeff gave us information about everything we needed to do to get our house ready for a sell. They kept us in the loop through the entire process of the sell. And made closing very easy for us after we had moved out of state. We have recommended them to many of our friends and family. They are THE BEST!!!!

Jeff and his team were phenomenal!

By Matthew & Nicole Gamette December 2016

Jeff and his team were phenomenal. We bought our house and sold our house with him and he was a total professional. He used techniques that benefited us and protected us through the entire process. We had some challenging situations and he had an answer to every problem and resolved every situation. He was with us every step of the way and was physically there with us every step of the way. He came to our closing and signings, he was there when we had contractors come, was there for the inspection, and was available to us whenever we needed him. It is really too bad that there is not an option for additional stars on his rating because he deserves them. He is honest, fair, and ethical. He follows through on things, and always exceeds expectations. He and his home inspector caught some things that could have cost us thousands of dollars to fix and helped us negotiate with the owners to get them fixed. We watched him take the high road many times when others may have done something less. We are totally impressed by him. The communication with us and other realtors was phenomenal. He knows the market better than anyone and made solid pricing recommendations when we bought and sold. He was exactly right. However, he never pushed us to do anything. We listed where we felt comfortable and he completely supported us and helped us to get top dollar for our house we sold. His thoughts on preparing our house to sell were excellent and his overall knowledge of the process is always right on! He researched things out and knew exactly where we should be. His feedback from anyone that walked through our home was extremely helpful as we tried to market it. We have worked with other realtors and can compare him to others. He was incredible and stands above anyone else we have worked with in the past. Really not even a comparison. He is patient, kind, and well respected! We will work with him on our next real estate deal. THANKS JEFF!

I highly recommend Jeff as your realtor!

By Joe Bray October 2015

I highly recommend Jeff as your realtor! He first sold our house quick for more than we'd hoped, giving us great advice on how best to go about it. And then he found the perfect house for us to purchase too. Jeff was able to move quick so that we didn't have to move into an apartment in between either, which was great. He has great contacts to help make the whole process smooth and easy, like carpet cleaners and handyman services. The whole experience could not have gone better - thanks Jeff!

We couldn't have made a better decision!

By Curtis Hoagland June 2015

When my family and I decided to relocate from Midland, TX to Meridian, ID, we knew our greatest challenge would be finding a house that would fit our needs and wants for a growing family of 5. After emailing several real estate agencies, we chose Jeff. We couldn't have made a better decision. Not only did Jeff know the area very well, he was able to provide us with insight and great information. His communication was prompt; we never felt like we were three states away. Thanks to his commitment to us, we have found our new home. We highly recommend Jeff.

Jeff helped us save a lot of money, but even more he made the whole experience enjoyable!

By Rich & Emily Fernandez July 2008

My wife and I recently purchased our first home. A friend of ours introduced us to Jeff shortly after we had seriously begun looking for a house. At that point we had not selected a Realtor and were impressed at how much Jeff offered to help without demanding that we immediately sign a buyer agreement. We had looked at many homes on the internet, but found more value in visiting some of the listings with Jeff. As we continued searching, Jeff e-mailed us a listing of a short sale close to our area and called to see if we wanted to look at it. That evening we put an offer on the house and not long after we had purchased our first home. Jeff helped us save a lot of money, but even more he made the whole experience enjoyable. He organized everything with everyone, never pushed us into a decision, and even helped with some of the small repairs we wanted to make. Thanks Jeff, for everything!
