The Windermere Report: Coeur d’Alene MLS, North Idaho Real Estate Market Review for 2011

Dear Friends,

We thought you would appreciate this information about last year’s Real Estate Market in North Idaho.  Here is the annual Windermere Market Review.

We would LOVE to hear from you!

We fear that our clients and friends may think we “only” want to hear from you when you are ready to buy or sell real estate.  Not True!   We truly enjoy all the friendships we have made through the years, and would just love a chance to “catch up”.

Please call or email us, or even stop in the office.  Tell us about your children, grandchildren, pets.  Help catch us up on “you”.

Also, if you haven’t yet heard, we have a NEW PUPPY.  Well…he’s not so “new” these days.  We adopted “Trakker” in September.  He’s quite a perky, energetic, friendly little fellow.  He would enjoy meeting you.  And to tell the truth, we like to “show him off”.  He’s our “baby”.

Anyway, if you have any questions about information you read in this report, we would also be happy to help you sort it all out as well.

As always, we

  • treasure your friendship,
  •            value your  business, and
  •                        will work hard for your referrals. 

 

Looking forward to hearing from YOU!

~ Randy, Christy & “Trakker”

WE CAN HELP: Avenues for Hope Housing Challenge

Challenging Idaho Communities to Help Bring Families off the Street this Winter

Many are at risk of being left out in the cold this winter.

The Home Partnership Foundation, brought to you by the Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA), is challenging Idahoans to help bring families off the street by donating to a housing-related nonprofit of their choice online through the Avenues for Hope Housing Challenge.

“Because of the economic downturn, the number of people on the brink of homelessness is increasing,” said Gerald Hunter, IHFA president and executive director and Home Partnership Foundation president.  “The Foundation’s work is intended to unite efforts to help enhance funding for housing-related nonprofit partners through donations. If you care about preventing homelessness in your area, this is a great opportunity to help.”

 

The Challenge will run from Nov. 14 to Dec. 31 and allows donors to select which nonprofit in Idaho to donate to and, by doing so, they increase the chances for the nonprofit of their choice to earn a portion of the $25,000 in challenge grants from the Foundation.

 

Make your gift today by logging onto www.avenuesforhope.org.

Please share this opportunity with friends to help bring families off the street in our community. Follow us on Twitter

(@avenuesforhope) and like us on Facebook.
