I just bought my first home with Henry! He is an amazing realtor who went above and beyond. Not only did Henry impress me with his availability and dedication to my first home buying experience but he has an amazing team of people that he works with. From start to finish this was a positive experience! Thank you Henry!

    We've worked with many realtors over the years but none can compare with Paul. He's always been available to help us out and he went way beyond the call of duty to help us get into our new house. Since we were coming in from out of town we had very limited hours available for house hunting. Paul stuck with us through some long weekends with late hours and never once did we feel pressured or put out. Since moving in he has helped us meet our new neighbors and given us lots of advice about the local area. Paul is a top-notch Realtor and we heartily recommend him to anyone looking for real estate in this area. Rick & Anna Mellen

    Jeff is a great Realtor! He provided us with lots of information on potential homes for weeks because we had some very specific needs and had to cull through a lot of properties. When we found the right house, we knew it right away. The process was fast and easy. We LOVED the e-sign capabilities. It worked very well with our busy schedules. We would use Jeff again, without a doubt, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good, honest, hardworking Realtor.

    Jon was incredibly patient, kind & understanding during our home search process! This was an interstate move, & we emailed & phoned a lot prior to actually coming to the Boise area. We made two trips, & probably saw 40-60 homes...Jon found out more info. on homes & helped us decide on the perfect house & area for us! He helped make the transition easy & the lending team he works with was awesome too. He even guided us through the selling of our Seattle home when we were unsure we were getting good advice. Jon made our move a really smooth & positive experience, I would highly recommend him as a realtor!

      Michele was an amazing realtor to work with! She was more than willing to work around our crazy schedules, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She is THE reason we ended up winning a home with multiple offers. I'd HIGHLY recommend Michele!

      About

      I am a native of the Treasure Valley and thoroughly enjoy helping people in the community buy and/or sell their real estate. With over 16 years in the escrow and title service end of real estate, I moved into working directly with buyers and sellers. I feel that I understand the real estate process better because of my escrow and title experience, and I enjoy making sure that people understand the steps of the real estate process. I enjoy the opportunity to get to know people and to help them make the necessary decisions that real estate entails. I have many satisfied customers who have enriched my life (references upon request). I believe that honesty, integrity, and being responsible are important in everything we do. I will do all that I can to make your real estate experience great. Thank you for the opportunity to help.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What does a real estate agent do?

      Real estate agents help their clients buy, sell, and rent commercial and residential properties. There are also real estate agents that sell industrial and agricultural real estate, but the majority sell residential properties. To become a real estate agent, you must be at least 18 years old, successfully complete real estate courses, and pass a real estate exam. Be sure to check for any required licensing, too. Often real estate agents will earn 5 percent to 6 percent of the total home sale price for their work in representing their client. Typically this commission is split equally between the buyer’s agent and the seller’s agent. Here is an overview of what a real estate agent does, according to the United States Department of Labor:

      • Represent clients who are looking to buy, sell and rent properties.
      • Stay knowledgeable about regional real estate prices, mortgages, market conditions and related information, and advise clients accordingly.  
      • Determine competitive market prices by comparing properties.
      • Create and publicize lists of properties for sale, including details such as location and features.
      • Market properties through advertisements, open houses and listing services.
      • Show prospective buyers or renters properties.
      • Present purchase offers to sellers for consideration.
      • Mediate negotiations between buyer and seller.
      • Ensure that all terms of purchase contracts are met.
      • Prepare documents, such as loyalty contracts, purchase agreements and deeds.

      What should you look for in a real estate agent?

      When you’re hiring a real estate agent you want to find a qualified pro who can negotiate the best deal for your home — whether you’re buying or selling. Reading reviews will help you weed out obvious bad operators; you want to work with someone who treats their clients with fairness and respect. That said, you also want someone who can play hardball and maximize your real estate deal. Ask for references from recent clients, and be sure to call them.

      Experts encourage you to interview more than one prospective real estate agent before hiring. A home sale or home purchase is a big deal — sometimes the biggest deal in a person’s life — and you want to find an agent who will work hard for you. In today’s market, having a real estate agent who is social media savvy and has an attractive online presence is critical. Ask the agent how they plan to market your house. Review their listings, and ask yourself if they have professional photos with homes that are professionally staged. If the answer is no, they might not have the marketing savvy you’re looking for. Ask what price they would list your house at and why. Pay attention to how they communicate with you during your initial interviewing phase. Are they too busy to respond for several days? Are they clear and helpful? This information is a clue to how they’ll engage during the entire process.

      What's the difference between a real estate broker and an agent?

      Real estate agents and real estate brokers both help clients buy, sell, and rent residential and commercial properties. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, real estate brokers are licensed to manage their own real estate businesses. Real estate agents cannot have their own real estate office and must work under a broker. Real estate brokers often have real estate firms and employ real estate agents. Those real estate agents may be employees of the firm, or they may work on contract and earn part of any commission they bring into the firm.

      If you are a homeowner ready to sell or a buyer in the market for a new home, either a real estate broker or a real estate agent can help you achieve your goal. What is more important than their title is their track record and client success stories. When interviewing real estate agents or brokers to help you buy or sell a home, ask about their recent sales history as compared with the original listing prices. If you’re selling a home, ask how they would market your home and what price they would list it at. Whether you hire an agent or broker, you want a professional who will have your best interests at heart.

      What do real estate agents charge?

      Real estate agents typically don’t charge a set rate to their clients, but rather earn a commission on the price of the final home sale. In traditional real estate, there is a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The two agents receive 5 percent to 6 percent of the final home sale price and split it evenly, meaning they each earn roughly 2.5 percent to 3 percent of the total home sale. If you are a home seller, you may have fees associated with the sale that are above and beyond the commission the agents earn. The real estate agent may have you pay marketing fees, MLS fees, early cancellation fees, or more. Always ask pricing details before signing a contract so you clearly understand your financial obligations. Here are some of the average (and common) costs that can arise when selling a home:

      • Home inspection: $200-$350 or more, depending on region.
      • Home appraisal: $250-$400 or more, depending on region.
      • Professional real estate photography: $275-$550 or more, depending on photographer, square footage of house, and special requests like sunset shots.
      • Closing costs: Often split between the seller and buyer. An average range for the buyer to pay is between 3 percent and 4 percent, with the seller paying a lower fee at 1 percent to 3 percent of the home’s price.
