I contacted Michael Edgar and a few other Brokers/Agents, informing them I would be coming to Boise, and potentially buying a home - that it was one of several metro areas I was considering. We used the same process in Salt Lake City, Tacoma, and Portland. Michael is head-and-shoulders above the others.
Michael took two days and not only showed us houses, but wanted us to understand the different areas/communities of the metro area, where restaurants were, the river park, university, lake, etc., that we would first be able to identify the area we desired to live, then to find a home we would be interested in. Michael took us all over, gave us suggestions for each evening after we parted, and has remained in communication with us in the months since we saw him. We will be moving to Boise, and we will be asking Michael to represent us as our buyer's agent.
He is organized, thorough, responsive, articulate, and engaged. I would recommend him to anyone considering buying a house in the Boise Metro area.
I enjoyed showing you around my Valley/area. You and your wife were fantastic to hang out with for a few days as I showed you around the valley and we got to know each other. I look forward to working with you in the future and I think it says a lot about the area that you decided to choose Boise over all those other areas you were considering.
