Home Starts with Your Surroundings

In 1968 my mother loaded the wagon and moved the family to Sun Valley; not a covered wagon, but those long-paneled wagons with the rear-facing seat in the back. As a young girl straight from L.A. and beach life, I was a bit overwhelmed but quickly understood the inherent allure of this place. It is the west in every sense of the word.

California is the west too, but Idaho is the real deal. This is the place where, when you descend from Timmerman Hill into the Valley, you exhale and know you have found a ‘place to belong’.

A couple of years ago I had decided to buy a second home in Sun Valley/Ketchum area. I was clueless on knowing any good real estate agents and have owned enough homes over my life to know that there really is a big difference between a really good agent and the average ones. So, how do you find a good one. Generally, word of mouth or a reference from a friend and that is how I finally connected with Corey Graham, through a mutual friend. It turned out to be an excellent move and on so many levels. I am one of these people who are very clear in what I want and what my needs were. Corey actually listened and got it. As a result, we did not have to look at zillion places. In fact, the first place she showed me was the one that I ultimately bought. We did look at a couple of others, just to give me a feel of what was on the market. Reality, she hit the bullseye in one showing. From the initial offer through closing we did not have one hip cup and closing was all done online, making life much easier for everyone. The transaction was flawless, Corey is very personable and very easy to work with. Simply put, I would use Corey again and no doubt will in the future, and if you use her, you will have least made one really good decision in this process and look like a hero.
We are writing to commend the exceptional service provided us by your agent, Corey Graham… After listing with another broker, our showings increased fourfold, and the positive ‘buzz’ created by Corey resulted in her obtaining a quality offer with a quick closing. Two weeks ago, when we came to Ketchum to clean out our condo, we heard from numerous friends that the Valley’s real estate market remains very difficult. We feel quite fortunate to have accomplished a sale, and are most grateful to Corey. Corey gave us great advice regarding pricing, helped us “re-stage” our furniture, and also suggested simplifying the deck landscaping. All this advice made the place more attractive to a wider census of buyers and eventually provided the sale. In a market where good properties continue to trade only at a steep discount to replacement cost, it takes exceptional market savvy to make a deal. You must be gratified to have agents like Corey as part of your team. Once again, we thank Sotheby’s for enabling our sale.
You did one heck of a job. I like people who look for solutions. This would have torpedoed with the wrong people at the helm. 5 stars to you from us.
