Kamas & Kacie, Buyers-Idaho Falls

Gideon & Charity Burrows, Buyer-Idaho Falls
"We had traveled from Alaska and had four days to find a home. Mike worked long hours, accommodating our tight schedule, showing us homes we'd listed on his web site. Nearly forty and buying a home for the first time, I felt I should know more about the process. Mike's perception was phenomenal. Not only did he watch our reactions as we looked at various houses to gauge whether a home was right for us, but he knew of my inexperience as a Buyer and often answered my questions before I could ask them.
"I found Mike's character to be a perfect balance of personable and professional. It was clear to us from the beginning he knew the inner workings of real estate, the market, and developed an accurate sense of exactly what we wanted in a home. To illustrate, Mike showed us a house we had not added to our list. This house had everything we wanted and eventually became the home we purchased. Each day we're in the house we appreciate where we are and what we have. We're confident we made the right choice in our home and in our Realtor."
Gretchen Lampe, Buyer-Idaho Falls
"The ONE comment I have about your selling abilities and REMAX ....... be ready to MOVE when listing with you. In this tough selling environment you don't seem to have any problems moving homes. It was shocking to us that within five weeks of listing our home it was sold. This is the reason we keep coming back to you Mike and we recommend to our friends that are selling or buying. I sincerely hope this is our last move, but....you never know - HOWEVER we know who to call if we need to. Thanks Mike"
Doug & Cathy McGiffin, Seller-Idaho Falls
"4 months to sell a house to Lisa and I was an eternity, at least it seemed like it going through it. 4 months sounds SHORT to other people that are selling or have sold homes and the amount of people you brought through was amazing! In my book "Nobody can get or attract more people through house in a down market than Mike Hicks" you've got a great name with us (no one else we'd recommend) and special place in our hearts...Truly, thanks ALWAYS for helping us move! As for our realtor experience at this point...OF COURSE WE LOVED OUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOU!!!! I have promoted ONE realtor when I hear someone talking about selling or buying and that has been YOU and YOU alone! You were the RIGHT guy for us!!! You are a great person Mike! We so appreciate you and all you have blessed us with in the selling of our house and the friend we gained"

Curb Appeal >Landscaping Your Home
Many buyers call a realestate office for information on a home after reading an appealing description of the property, or seeing a photograph of the exterior of the home on the real estates website. The exterior of your house and your yard will create the first impression for prospective buyers when they drive up to your house. Spending money on landscaping can bring you excellent returns when you sell your home.
You don't have to spend a fortune or develop an elaborate landscaping plan to make your front yard look terrific. If the yard is neatly mowed and trimmed and there are colorful plants blooming, the outside appearance of your home will make a good impression. A local nursery can help you select plants that will grow well and require minimal care. If you are planning to make any permanent changes or additions to your property, ask for advice from your real estate agent.
What land did the U.S. Government buy for $7.2 million?
The U.S. bought all of Russian America (Alaska) from the Russian Czar in March 1867.
