By far the BEST you will find. Will & Laura, where do I begin? They are the most kind, patient, knowledgeable, and funny. I'm not exaggerating when I say they stuck by us for over 2 YEARS while we searched, changed our minds, and went through different life and financial things over and over again. Driving to several different locations and houses, answering our questions at all hours of the day, never giving up on us. Then they found a house for us that we loved and finally were able to buy. They truly advocate and fight for you during the offering process and all the back and forth. Even after closing (which they were along with us for every step of the way), they continue to check in and want updates and make sure things are going smoothly and that we are happy. I can't say enough. They will answer every question and concern no matter how silly. If you are a first time homebuyer like we were, and even if you are not, you must use them. From the first time in March of 2020 when I knew nothing about buying a house and called just to see what our first step would be, up until January 2023 when we closed on our first home, they were there and happy to help us. We can guarantee we will use them again when that time comes. Thank you SO much Will & Laura! -Carter & Bella M.

I got the opportunity to work with Will and Laura while buying my first house. They were very compassionate people and worked with me around my schedule since I worked from home when it came to the showings in the current house I was living in. They both always had wonderful attitudes and got everything done promptly and answered any questions I had at any time of day or night. Bonus is they were so sweet with my little six month old as well! I would highly recommend to them to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home.

How to describe the best business dealing of my life? (*rolls up sleeves*) I’ll try: The Staffords came into our lives as we were dealing with one frustration after another in our YEARS-LONG, very specific search for the perfect property in North Idaho. It seemed to us that the string of disappointing realtors in our wake just weren’t motivated. We happened to meet Will & Laura quite by chance when they drove to the Oregon Coast to buy a large item that we had offered for sale online. Once we realized they were realtors, we bombarded them with questions. They happily answered them all, and offered excellent tips. They encouraged us to try to make things work with the realtor we had at the time, but after another month of half-hearted “efforts” by our guy, we knew we had to make a change. Once we signed up with the Staffords, we kicked ourselves for not doing it earlier. The difference between them and the half-dozen real estate agents that we had previously dealt with was like NIGHT AND DAY. They absolutely threw themselves into the process, giving us regular updates with phone calls, texts and email. They drove all over the Panhandle to provide us with video of houses and lots. There are many examples of them going above and beyond the call of duty, but there is one, perhaps, that is the most telling: A property we were considering was within a few hundred yards of a railroad crossing. We were concerned that the noise from the train’s whistle would be a nuisance, but we had no way to know how loud it was. Will and Laura offered to drive to the property AND SIT THERE UNTIL A TRAIN CAME BY, then report their findings to us. It wasn’t long before we found our forever home. In a market where listings are quickly snatched up by eager buyers, the Staffords didn’t waste one second in doing everything necessary to make it happen for us. They jumped in head-first and, when the dust settled, it was ours. I believe we will be lifelong friends.

We want to help but only YOU can tell us how to do it best!

Before becoming professional Real Estate agents ourselves, we had a very negative experience with other agents we needed help from. Either they didn't seem to hear us, or they had an ulterior motive and were trying to push on us what they wanted instead of hearing what we said we wanted.

We remain sensitive to this feeling when you're trying to make an informed decision on where you may spend years (if not the remainder) of your life or how you will spend what may be the largest amount of money in your life. Real Estate transactions are substantial and you want to make the best move possible considering your budget, time, and the market.

Please reach out to us TODAY at 208-262-6000 or by filling out the form here to see how we can help you best.
