In addition to buying and selling rental income properties, other projects include restoration, renovation, new construction, affordable housing, land development and PUD's (Planned Unit Development). Currently they are launching Sandpoint's first rural eco-friendly, green development, The Ledges Over Pend Oreille.
Karen and Rich have added Josh Ivey to their team, making up ELITE REAL ESTATE GROUP.
"When I first traveled to Sandpoint in 2000, I was taken by the magnificent sunsets over Lake Pend Oreille, the fresh air walking through the mountains, along with the sightings of wildlife throughout."
