Dream Home 

Boise is a growing city that is friendly toward the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community. There are abundant opportunities to meet and socialize with others in your community. I can give you the insider’s view on those venues that may not have an online presence.

I’m proud to announce that I am officially a member of the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals. Established in 2007, The National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) is a mission driven 501(c)(3) non profit organization that is part business and part advocacy.

Why Idaho?


It’s one of the few places in the U.S. where you can golf, bike, ski, go camping, canoeing, and boating — all within 45 minutes of home. Southwest Idaho, known as the Treasure Valley, is often ranked as one of the nation’s best places to live. The area is anchored in Boise, the third-largest city in the Northwest, and covers 1,645 square miles.

"Boise's residents may spend their days enjoying nature, but they fill their evenings dining on locally sourced cuisine, enjoying an opera performance and sipping delicious cocktails."

—U.S. News & World Report

The Treasure Valley is family-friendly but enjoyable for the single person, as well. (Think: an array of food options, nightlife, cultural attractions, and a variety of living choices.) The Boise foothills provide both world-class recreational opportunities and a stunning focal point — especially in early spring, autumn, and after a snowfall.

With four distinct seasons, generally mild winters, and hot days in late summer, Idaho's climate is ideal. The area is situated in the high desert, with dry air that makes even hot days feel pleasant. Much of Southwest Idaho lies in zones 6 and 7 — perfect for gardening. You’ll see flowers, shrubs, and trees bloom for several months before changing color.
