ABOVE AND BEYOND!
Above and Beyond is exactly what Kathy Vaughan and the team at Garden Valley Properties did for me. We bought our home in Garden Valley in August of 2006 and received excellent service from Kathy. As a buyer, Kathy was so efficient and no doubt the best and most professional real estate agent that we have ever dealt with and she became our friend before escrow even closed.

In 2007, I had a sudden change in my life and sadly to say, I also lost my significant other to cancer and I had to put my Garden Valley dream home up for sale. Also, the housing market took a turn for the worse so I had no choice but to walk away from the house and mortgage payments. Kathy and the team work diligently to sell my home via a short sale. Finally an offer came through and Kathy along with the help of the broker Diane Caughlin was able to work with my lenders and put the deal to a close. Honestly, I felt like they performed a miracle!

I have never seen an agent or real estate company go "Above and Beyond" like Kathy and Diane did for me. Believe me when I say, whether you are a buyer or seller, the team at Garden Valley Properties will go "Above and Beyond" for you and anyone that walks through their door. There are not enough words in the dictionary to say thank you all for your hard work!

Dear Garden Valley Properties LLC,
We would like to express our appreciation for the outstanding customer support services rendered by one of your agents, Toni Palmiotto. She was simply the "best of the best" in terms of assisting us in finding a vacation home in the local area that would meet our needs. Toni went above and beyond to ensure that we received an equitable price for our new cabin and also took extra steps to ensure that any concerns that we may have had regarding the property that we desired, were readily addressed and resolved in a timely manner

Toni took care of business. She was always available to answer questions and take care of our needs. We simply could not have asked for a better real estate agent or firm to work with, especially in an uncertain market. Toni’s ability and proven savvy as a seasoned real estate agent, successfully navigated us through what turned out to be a very streamlined purchase. She also went the extra mile to ensure that our vacation home would be ready for us to occupy in a timely manner.

Additionally, even when the "deal was done", Toni took it upon herself to follow up with the previous owner and listed real estate broker to ensure that we had a smooth transition as the new owners of this property. The gift certificate that she sent us was also a nice touch. We simply could not have done it without her assistance and determination to get the job done right in support of her customer. She is quite frankly without peer and a role model for other real estate agents to follow.

We will certainly recommend both Toni and your outstanding real estate firm to others. She has managed to set the standard for others to follow. We commend her for a job well done!

Dear Diane,
As you well know, it was a very difficult decision for us to sell our wonderful home in Garden Valley to go exploring the USA in our motorhome. The truly outstanding help, support, and advice provided by you and all of your agents made our experience as good as it could possibly be. Having bought and sold homes over the years from San Diego, CA., to Alexandria, VA, we have had many experiences with teal estate agents and brokers from all parts of the country. None of them understood what being a "full service" broker meant when compared to the service provided by Garden Valley Properties. Your professionalism, honesty, and genuine caring set the bar that all others should be trying to attain. (Perhaps you should offer training courses to other real estate agents/brokers!) We most highly recommend Garden Valley Properties to anyone interested in buying or selling property in Garden Valley, Idaho. They will not be disappointed.

As a Real Estate Broker for RE/MAX with over 130 agents working for me I have observed many different classes of agents and how they operate their businesses. Toni is truly in a class by herself. Toni is one of those rare agents who has always has her client's best interests at heart. Toni is professional, courteous and above all, trustworthy. Even though Garden Valley is only a short 40 minute drive from the market where I live and work, I would not think of side-stepping the use of a professional agent who lives and works in the Garden Valley Market exclusively. I have purchased and sold multiple properties using Toni’s representation. Toni is a great advisor who brings her talent to the table for me and makes my bottom line better every time. Toni is my go-to Realtor in Central Boise County!

A letter to the Broker
We would like to express our thanks to your office and wonderful staff in the recent purchase of our property. Kathy Vaughan was truly a joy to work with and highly efficient in every aspect of her job. She was very knowledgeable and always available to answer our multitude of questions or have the answer in a very short time. It was great the way she was on top of every detail, large and small, always returned our calls in a prompt manner, and even arranged for coverage in her absence. We couldn't have done it without her. We want you to know how much we appreciate the gift certificate and everything your office did to make this a smooth transaction. We will highly recommend Garden Valley Properties to our friends.

Small Town Friendliness
My husband and I spent about two years looking for property in Idaho and we looked in various places from Idaho City to New Meadows, but the place that continued to call us back and kept us looking at many, many properties was Garden Valley. We initially spent a few days there in a home rented through Idaho Cabin Keepers and they are the ones who recommended Garden Valley Properties as our best choice in realtors. That was fantastic advice and we immediately bonded with Diane Caughlin both as a realtor who listened to us and was always willing to go way and above what one would normally anticipate from a realtor as well as anticipating that she will be a good friend once we are settled in GV. When I would come alone to GV, Diane always made sure I had someone to eat dinner with and on numerous occasions invited me and whomever was with me to her home for food and drink. She was always willing to comply with our travel schedule and would see us and show us homes even when it was her day off

Garden Valley Properties is second to none!
Joyce and I visited our cabin in Crouch for nine years every chance we had. We loved the community, the people, the many outdoor recreational opportunities, and of course the beautiful landscapes in every direction.

We recently retired and decided we would like to travel around America and other places. Although we really enjoyed our cabin located in the best kept secret in Idaho, we came to the decision that we should sell the cabin to make our travels more enjoyable.

We noticed Garden Vally Properties had been selling lots of property, so we went into their office and once there, knew these were the folks to sell our beloved cabin. Diane, Tami, and each of the ladies there were so friendly, and were interested in us as their clients.

In a short period of time, they secured several offers to purchase our cabin. Last week we completed the closing on the last offer, and needless to say, we're are pleased with the results.

For any of you folks in the Garden Valley area who want
