As the owner/broker of Progressive Realty Corporation, my objective is to set the standard for my agents to follow! Call me to see the difference that 20 years of local experience makes! I have at worked four major real estate franchises and always felt there was something they could improve on. Therefore, I have reverse engineered Progessive Realty Corporation based on recognizing the strengths of my previous affiliations with Realty World, Coldwell Banker, John L. Scott and Re/Max. I believe in empowering the consumer via the internet. In July 2008, I became the only Certified EPRO Trainer living in the State of Idaho for the National Association of Realtors. In this capacity, I help other agents receive their EPRO designation to prove their competence in using today's technology to help facilitate their real estate business. I welcome the opportunity to be interviewed to be your exclusive Realtor!

I want to make you the beneficiary of my 20 years of experience and knowledge of the financial, investment, tax and building sides of the real estate. I am so confident that if you select me and for some reason change your mind, I will cancel our agreement if I can't resolve your conflict within 24 hours! If you are looking for an agent with a specific field of expertise that I am not proficient in, let me know and I will have one of my other agents take excellent care of you. Give me a call and see the difference my experience will make in getting you the best possible price with the least possible problems! Thank you.

I have closed brand new homes with over 50 local builders, so if we can't find the right home, let's have one built! Let me put my experience and Broker's License to work for you!

Rental Car Tips and Advice

As a Realtor and real estate trainer, I do my fair share of travel and am always trying to find the least expensive option that is still viable.  One thing that frustrates me is rental cars since the exact same product is priced so differently depending on how you shop.

I used to call (or log into) all the rental companies and start comparing the variety of discounts they offer to see which one is most beneficial for me.  Then, after I thought I did my research, I would even try using a site like Priceline to see if I could do even better.

However, now I have found something that works amazingly well and results in the use of one website and no coupons.  My favorite solution now is www.CostcoTravel.com

They apply their bulk pricing, then add in coupons they are aware of to come up with their pricing.  They show rates by vehicle type and company and let you decide which is best.

However, one more thing you might check on your trips is how much cheaper it might be and if it makes sense to pick up the car at another location besides the airport since many airports include additional fees that can be avoided by going just a few miles away.  Here is the difference for the same time period but not picking up and dropping off at the airport.

Non Airport car rental

I researched these rates for October 1 - 4th for the Idaho Association of Realtors conference and the Idaho CRS Chapter.  They are always subject to change, but it is still a good sample of what you might see.
