I'm a transplant from California, that after looking at areas such as Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Washington decided to move to Northern Idaho.
I love water, mountains and trees. We have them all here in the Coeur D'Alene region.
If you are thinking of moving here from another state, I have almost memorized the reasons that this is an amazingly great area....tax relief, lower property taxes, lower sales taxes, lower gasoline taxes. We also offer a multitude of activities such as fishing, boating, hunting, skiing, (water and snow), hiking, "The Centennial Trail. I also love great restaurants, and we likely have a choice that will compare to your "favorite".
People here are nice and will often go out of their way to be helpful. I recently had a car problem at a store here, and two people involved themselves to solve the issue and get me on my way. I was very thankful that it was just a new battery. But that type of generosity is in abundance.
I have immersed myself into learning about and viewing the different types of land and housing available here. I will gladly let you know all the things that popped out at me when I first moved here. It seems that many of my out-of-state buyers have the same questions and desire for more "localized education". Feel free to ask any questions about the area. If I don't know the answer, I will find out for you.
As my customer reviews have often stated, I am not afraid of challenges that arise in a transaction. I am observant when looking at a home with a buyer, and will usually preview the home, as pictures are not the same as seeing it physically. Clients also appreciate a "second set of eyes". I will do what needs to be done to help a buyer get through the transaction as easily as possible. And, I will even work with a client after the purchase is completed to do things such as; "meet the movers", get the keys from the lockbox, or resend paperwork that the buyer may have misplaced. I do it because it is what I would love a realtor to do for me in a purchase. And maybe, there will be another time for us to work together in the future.
I look forward to helping you buy your next property.
I can't put into words the help that Carla did for me. She helped from beginning to end always giving 110%. I am working in China and without her helping I would never been able to get my home! She helped me find inspectors and secure a loan. Doing this while I'm in China. She made it so easy for me! I give her the highest marks that I can.
She helped me locate my home which turn out to be the first home I looked at! We spent several days looking at homes. She had a game plan and we were able to see all the homes that I ask to see, I was only in town for a very short while. She was kind and curtsies to me with a vast knowledge of the area and what to look for. Making my first time experience so easy.
She helped me find a loan agent and insurance. She covered all the bases so I would be covered. She even took her own time to meet with the inspector in behalf of me. which she didn't need to do! Made sure that all my power was switch over to me . S Smith
If you're looking for a great realtor (and a wonderful person), look no further. Carla Bonney is amazing. She has all the qualities that are important in this line of work; knowledge of the area, patience, organization, great communication, and helpful in every way. Carla went above and beyond the call of duty while working with me and my husband, and continues to be gracious with her time even after our deal has closed.
Carla is a very diligent and hardworking agent. She is very responsive, and brought forth several properties in various communities for us to look at. We were very impressed with her untiring efforts to locate the right house or lot to match our parameters. I would highly recommend Carla to anyone looking to purchase a new house or lot in northern Idaho.
