Our Happy Clients & community

Don't take our word for it. Here is what they say about us.

Danica-Thank you for the easy sale of my new little house! It's turned out really cute and has booked out fast! It was such a easy process I don't have any suggestions for improvement.

I would highly recommend Neal Scholey as more than just a very competent real estate agent. Of course, that is a fundamental qualification and in his case is the foundation or underpinning of all his other strengths that set him apart (in our personal experience) from others we have worked with. Neal clearly is a real estate agent that has a natural calm when fielding all concerns relating to finding the right home for you because he clearly listens to what is said to him about your ideals, and he takes note of dislikes as you move through different showings with him. He is also very up to date with all homes in the area that are available, soon to be available, and being built. Neal was also able to easily field the many questions involved with the process of buying a home that many people just aren’t aware of and the order that they best be addressed. He showed a lot of patience with repeat questions stemming from my poor grasp of the process, so a similar question popped up often. I noted that as we zeroed in on the ideal home we wanted & when some details were not perfect at the negotiation start, Neal calmly and expertly was able to secure for us all the “tending to of details” and helping us cleanly secure the purchase of our home. Finally, it is clear that Neal benefits from a very good relationship with other real estate agents, builders, inspectors, and Title companies because he was able to bring about our closing quickly as we requested right before a major holiday. I am absolutely confident in highly recommending Neal as a go-to agent where you can be assured of the benefits of his competence and relax because it will be clear that he will address every and any question or detail that you are concerned about. Neal does his job exceptionally well and has a great sense of humor the whole time.

Sarah made the entire process of selling our property seamless! She possesses acute attention to detail, is extremely knowledgeable about the local market, and always made time for us and our questions. I would absolutely recommend Sarah for all of your real estate needs!

 Neal answered an email on short notice and got us in to see a house when nobody else could. We did not buy that house, but we did set up a full day of looking at 12 houses on a Saturday a few months later. Neal was patient with our lack of experience in the home buying process. He made everything so simple even recommending a lender that was equally as helpful. I will recommend Neal to anyone I hear needing an agent! YOU ROCK NEAL!

Working with Sarah was a great experience!  She is a very knowledgeable and compassionate realtor and she knows her stuff.   She kept us updated and in the loop through the transaction process.  I would highly recommend Sarah!

I’ve worked with Sarah buying/selling six properties over the last four years. She goes above and beyond my expectations every time. She is diligent, responsive, and always two steps ahead of me. She is a master at fixing situations that are about to go sideways. She also has an expert eye for color and design and is excellent at staging properties and improving curb appeal. Her long ties and well-developed business relationships with title companies, banks, contractors, and other realtors in the region really make working with Sarah and buying/selling real estate a breeze. I highly recommend Sarah if you are in need of an amazing realtor who never drops the ball.

Karey, Neal and Local Team,

Thanks, -Silver Valley Chamber of Commerce, Kegs and Kickstands Committee

Thank you for helping us purchase our condo in Kellogg Danica!  We were fortunate to have your help along the way. The high quality of your service was demonstrated by your expertise of sales in the area as well as your research on properties prior to showing them to us.  This was evident when you answered our many questions along the way. Your communication was great throughout the process and you were always responsive to anything we needed.

Best Regards, -Nikki and Jerry Shumaker

Sarah is absolutely wonderful to work with.  She is a great realtor; always polite, helpful and knows the business and the community.   I feel lucky to have had her help and support in buying my house, but I am even luckier because we are neighbors now! I would definitely refer her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

-Rodney Ishihara

    We are so happy with our new vacation condo! We never felt pressured or rushed and you really helped guide us through all the nuances of buying a vacation home. Thanks for all your assistance Neal!

-Mary & Barton

Sarah Murphy has been great to work with. I have bought and sold several properties in the Silver Valley. Prior to meeting Sarah, I worked with a few other local realtors. I was extremely underwhelmed to say the least. Sarah helped me find a couple “diamonds in the rough”. She also listed and sold all my properties over the last 5 years and will continue too so.  Sarah is what a professional, competent realtor should be. She is a great communicator, helped me with design and most importantly, always answers the phone. If I am using a realtor in Northern Idaho, I will be using her.   If you are tired of unprofessional realtors, do yourself a favor and call Sarah.

-Kevin Pickolick

Aloha Danica! Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for our family. We were so happy to have gotten the chance to work with you!  Thank you so much for always being available when we needed and answering all questions we had. I know we sure changed our minds and timeline often and you were so great adjusting to our needs.

-Mahaho! The Smiths

Sarah was so patient and always made time for us. Very knowledgeable of the homes and helped us get into our first house as fast as we could! Also, very sweet and reliable!

-Holly Zanoni

Thank you Danica for all your help with this purchase.  I found you to be knowledgeable, thoughtful, prompt and very helpful.  I would recommend your services to everyone I know looking to buy or sell their house.

-Janette Odell

Danica definitely prioritized our needs during the whole process. Everything worked out better than we expected and are happy with the property.  Would highly recommend!

-Hannah Hill

Working with Sarah Murphy from Local Real Estate was a fantastic experience from out first meeting. She took her time during viewings which allowed us to really get a sense of the properties and if they fit our needs. She sent us new listings frequently within our budget and asked great questions to get to know us as buyers. When we found our perfect house, we were first to view and first to offer because Sarah was on top of every detail. She was able to answer many questions that first time home buyers would have and she also had great resources to get information on topics she was less familiar with. The process went quickly and left us feeling very confident by final signing. Thank you Sarah for helping to find the perfect home for our little family, we loved working with you and would encourage others to have you as their realtor.

Neal represented me on the purchase of Silver Mountain Resort (including the ski area, golf course, waterpark, etc.) as well as other properties in Kellogg, ID. Silver Mountain was by far the most complex transaction that I had ever been involved with. Neal worked patiently and confidentially to educate all parties so that all of the purchases closed. Neal works in the parties' best interests, rather than his own, and his knowledge and integrity is unparalleled.
