To quote an old veteran of the real estate business, my mother, "Coralea, you are perfect for this profession. You may be a bit too outspoken, but you have got everything else." Those who know me know this to be true. I will usually have a comment or opinion on just about anything real estate related, whether you want to hear it or not. Since first getting my real estate license in 1979, I have not stopped talking about it. From the ups and the downs, the successes and the disappointments, real estate has been my life. While investing in my own properties in California and Idaho, I learned nearly all facets of the business, not just the brokerage side. It has been an ever- evolving journey that has kept me growing and in turn helped my clients. My love of the West has enabled me to practice in two states, California (Marin County) and Idaho (Wood River Valley). I feel so blessed to have the support and knowledge to be able to do this. My first property was a little condo in Ketchum, Idaho in 1976 (yes, I was a young thing). The price of the condo was $26,000 and my monthly payments were $164.. Since then I have bought and sold multiple properties in both areas. But what has really kept me engaged in the areas are the amazing opportunities and lifestyles that these wonderful places offer. I continually say to anyone who will listen, you are buying a community and a lifestyle.. And while your house becomes your home, you need to feel like you 'belong'.... And when you are ready to sell, my extensive network and tireless dedication will ensure you a quick and smooth transaction. I am part negotiator, part lawyer, part psychologist, part chauffer, part paper pusher, and supremely confident in my skills to get the job done for you. I hope that I can help you too find your place of belonging, wherever that may be.
