RANKED IN THE TOP 8 OF IMLS AGENTS FOR 2014
Sheila and her crew ranked #8 out of over 3350 agents for the total volume of homes sold in the Intermountain MLS supporting all of Southern Idaho. Thank you to all of our clients and future clients for your support in helping us achieve that success.
After nearly a decade of actively investing in real estate, Sheila Smith experienced firsthand the doors that real estate can open to people and began her career as a Realtor. Within the first two years of having her license, she found herself in the upper 1% of realtors based on volume of property sold (active listings not included) in the Intermountain MLS, an area extending from Boise to Twin Falls to McCall. This success stems first from loving what she does but also by listening and paying attention to the individual needs of each unique home buyer and catering to their specific needs. Sheila's extensive experience lies not only in residential, but income & multi-family, new construction, development & commercial property.
She also listed bank owned properties for three different local banks & has the most successful close ratio for short sale listings in the Boise area. She has redesigned and decorated three cafes, and has a vision for staging, layout, & true potential in property. Her background also includes extensive remodeling work, of which she completed in over 13 properties, thus giving her depth of knowledge regarding the ins & outs of construction. Lastly, if you are a renter looking to buy your first home or an investor interested in buying a rental property, she currently owns 10 rentals & has developed a successful incentive program for renters to help them become homeowners.
Sheila's goal is to not only retain every client's business for life, but leave them so happy with her service that they are compelled to refer her to everyone they know. Her success stems from working hard for all of her clients and having fun during the process. Sheila has continued to be in the top 1% in the Treasure Valley and has received numerous awards, including the Star Award from the Idaho Housing and Finance Association for being one of their Top 3 Agents for First Time Home Buyers local lending programs. She also has received over a dozen RE/MAX Northwest Regional awards and Circle of Excellence awards consecutively. Handling such high volume allows Sheila to be current and well-versed regarding market fluctuations and property values, day-to-day inventory, pocket neighborhoods that are holding value, others that are not, and she definitely knows how to make a short sale close. Her knowledge and integrity ensures that all of her clients are making well-informed, thoughtful decisions. Sheila has an amazing work ethic and has developed long-lasting, trust-based relationships with her clients.
On a personal note…..before falling in love with Boise & settling down, Sheila had been an avid traveler, learned to speak fluent Spanish amidst tours from Mexico to Central & South America, including volunteering in a Guatemalan scholastics program for children in need. She also lived and worked remote on Baronof Island in Alaska for several years (no roads, electricity, or internet, & a population that you can count on your fingers) at a NOAA research facility. Before her explorations of the Americas, she received an extended BA in International Affairs, with dual minors in Spanish & Classical Guitar Performance at Northern Arizona University where she graduated with honors.
