Testimonials Minimize


Here is what some of our past clients have to say about us . . .


"Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! Ken was with me every step of the way, including the signing. His help invaluable. Ken's background with his former title company was invaluable. His real estate prowess and knowledge remarkable. In my book he is lengendary. As a woman dealing with limited knowledge of this process, no one could have done a better job then Ken Franklin. I have had dealings with realtors on 7 different properties, my father was a real estate broker in Anaheim, California. Ken Franklin surpassed every realtor I've known."



"Wanted to let you know that we were pretty impressed dealing with Stacy on the condo purchase. She's clearly got the 'deliver more than is expected' work ethic in play. She was organized, proactive, helpful - all the right stuff. And being Stacy, it was a pleasure to deal with her. "

Brian Anthony


"Mike, it was literally a pleasure to work with you on this deal, and I can't think of many things I would have done differently-seemed like you were ahead of the deal's progression by one step at each point"

Market Trends for December & End of 2016 Minimize

INVENTORY for the year was down 12% compared to a year ago.

PENDING DEALS was fairly active for this time of year with 20 deal going.

SALES for the year dropped by 18% overall when compared to a year ago.  Ada County showed decreases of 11% for duplexes and 52% for fourplexes while Canyon County showed increases of 25% for duplexes and 74% for fourplexes.  This may have been the result of the lower inventories in Ada County along with the higher demand compared to Canyon County.

ABSORPTION LEVELS showed all categories below 3 month's inventory levels which is the first time in over 3 years.  Note that Ada fourplexes is actually below one month supply.

Still a Seller's market.  I estimate that we've seen interest rates increase about 50 basis points, or 0.5%, in the last year.  Demand seems to be holding strong.  We'll see if the demand changes if interest rates continue to increase in 2017.

Holler with your comments.

Honor Flight Minimize

Honor Flight was our charity for 2015....

THANKS  -  Mary Jane and Mike for the corporate contribution to the Honor Flight . . . and Mary for personally delivering the check and having it presented to Lance during the Kilroy Koffee Hour at the Warhawk Museum on January 5, 2016.  I know he was most appreciative.

Since I had the privilege of going on the Honor Flight in 2014 I feel like I am a part of this organization and want it to continue to send veterans to Washington DC.  There are still many World War II veterans eligible before selections are made for Korean and Vietnam veterans. Contributions such as yours is what makes it possible to keep these flights going.  Those of us who had the honor of going on these flights are thankful for the interest you have shown in supporting this program.
