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”. For those that 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, the downs, the successes and the disappointments, it 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 life styles 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, one needs to feel like they ‘belong’..
And when you are ready to sell, my EXTENSIVE network and tireless dedication will ensure you a quick and smooth transaction.
Just read my testimonials. I know that 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.
As a licensed Agent in both California and Idaho, I am a member of the following professional organizations:
Corey was amazing and she had the local knowledge that we needed in making our decision to buy. Although I was extremely involved in searching for appropriate properties, she shed light on each one and knew the nuances (of neighborhoods, and micro-climates) that would impact the living experience. She was even able to negotiate a credit even though we entered contract on an “as-is” basis. Her level of commitment and communication was incredible. We would for certain refer her to friends and family. In fact, we have already referred some out of town friends looking to relocate in the Bay Area. We got the house we wanted and didn’t overpay and did this during the frenzy of 2014. We move in tomorrow! Awesome.
We have hired Corey on a friend’s recommendation to help us find a home in Marin County while living on the East Coast. Corey has been greatly exceeding our expectations! Corey has been amazing at helping us deal with buying a home long distance, always being proactive, and on top of things. Her local knowledge was a great asset for us, her communication skills a definite plus, and her negotiation skills helped us close on a home that received 7 bids. We would highly recommend Corey to anyone looking for an outstanding professional with a delightful personality willing to go the extra mile.
I purchased a property and worked with Corey. It was EXACTLY what I asked her to find for me. She made sure that I got it, and negotiated the deal smoothly and in my favor. She is still helping me – a year later. What more could you ask? She is the dream real estate agent.
Love her! My mother was a real estate agent so I had a high bar on what I thought one should do for me. Once while starting the process 7 years ago in the city I had a guy say, “well once you find a place that you like why don’t you give me a call…” Really? I don’t think so. Corey worked hard for me right from the beginning, before I even knew I was serious about it. She met with me and showed me a couple places so she could get a sense of what I liked. Then she would send me listings that she thought I’d like, and some that I found on my own she would help me whittle down the list based on what I had told her. When she would see me contemplating one, she would walk through the pro’s AND con’s of it. Some of the con’s were one’s I hadn’t thought about: where the afternoon sun was, etc. Through the frustrating escrow and loan process, she help me keep my cool a couple times. I’ve recommended her to 3 other friends so far, and will continue to do so!
Corey worked with me on every detail to get my property ready for the market. This was my first property to sell, so I needed a lot of support…Corey was with me every step of the way. Corey went above and beyond my expectations!
