Client Testimonials

Chris Nelson, Hailey Buyer “As a realtor in California and a first-time investment property buyer in Idaho, I could have represented myself in the purchase of my Hailey home, but I decided to ask a friend in town who he thought would best represent me in my home purchase.  He said he had used Rachel and Nicole and he highly recommended them.  I would wholeheartedly agree that it was the best decision I could have made.  Not only were they always available to me when I needed them and very honest and transparent when they weren’t (which hardly ever happened), but not using them could have easily cost me a property because I don’t know the local realtors, the local customs and the market as well as they do. To top it off, not only are they both immensely professional and capable, but they’re great people, the kind of people you’d want to be friends with.  They’re moms and they’re travelers and they’re athletes and outdoorsy people.  I can’t say enough good things about them!

Leslie and Brian, Sun Valley Buyers “From our first phone conversation, we knew Rachel was not only a fabulous person but an outstanding real estate professional. For our vacation home search, Rachel provided a holistic experience, guiding us through the Ketchum and Sun Valley areas, the flavor of each area, the current market analysis, and the overall town culture, not to mention an extensive property search with honest feedback until we fell in love with the perfect home! At close, we had zero concerns, only excitement, and appreciation for our experience. Rachel is incredibly organized and detail-oriented in communication with loan agents, HOAs, and other realtors, and she conducts an excellent closing walk-through. Partnering with Rachel, you’ll feel completely ready to enjoy your beautiful space in Idaho!”

Thom & Shelly, Hailey Buyers “
We have been coming to the sun valley area for years always looking for a way to live here. We found a lot we loved met Nicole Lisk and got outbid. She was diligent in getting to know what we really wanted and understanding our lifestyle. She was honest about what wouldn’t suit us and she was always right. She found the perfect lot for us. Even with all the obstacles she made it happen. Nicole is a delight to work with she takes the time to understand her clients. She’s smart and a hard worker. She ultimately has become a valued friend and we highly recommend her!”

Alexis & Jerry, Hailey Buyers “Nicole did a wonderful job of guiding us through purchasing a Condo. Nicole made herself available to us meeting with us numerous times.  We also had to do a lot of this over the phone and email as we were not in town all of the time. Nicole is very patient and professional. If she didn’t know an answer to one of our questions she called whoever and got back to us with answers all in a short period of time. We are definitely glad Nicole was on our team!

Forrest & Katie, Hailey Sellers “Nicole and Rachel were simply the best to work with when we sold our Hailey house. They made the whole process as smooth as possible and helped getting our place sold very quickly above asking price. We couldn’t imagine working with anyone else, and if we return to the valley we hope to work with them again! As a family it was especially amazing to see how accommodating they were with our schedule, especially given that we had a 2 year old and newborn at the time. They were flexible and understanding of our time and even bought our two year old a birthday present! It was clear they love their job and truly care about all of their clients. Thank you so much Rachel and Nicole!”

Toni, Hailey Buyer “Rachel & Nicole are inherently the dynamic duo of real estate teams. Their traits complement each other and the result is an agent team that truly cares and goes the extra mile to ensure their customer’s every need is met and every question is answered. If you want to be highly satisfied at the end of your deal, I highly recommend choosing them.”

Wanda and Andrew, Hailey Buyers, “Rachel and Nicole are a team that will go above and beyond, we highly recommend them! Their dedication, timely response, care and attention to the details, local knowledge, honest feedback and guidance was invaluable and resulted in our purchase of a beautiful home.”

Jim Bartolino and Chris Johnson, Bellevue Sellers & Hailey Buyers “Rachel and Nicole represented us in both selling our home and purchasing another. During a strong seller’s market the search for a replacement dragged on for several months, yet Rachel and Nicole were very patient and encouraging throughout the process even when we became discouraged. We ultimately decided to build a home and they were extremely helpful during that process both with the builder and negotiating an extension with our buyers. From first contact through closing on the new house we worked with Rachel and Nicole for very nearly a year and they were very professional the entire time. We would gladly work with them again.”

Shauna, Hailey Seller, “I have had the pleasure of working with Rachel on many deals and more recently her Real estate partner Nicole on our most recent deal and I cannot say enough great things about them both! They always go above and beyond for their clients. They listen to what you need and want and strive to reach all the goals that their clients have for selling/buying a home! They keep you completely informed throughout the entire process and are willing to help in any way they can to make your buying/selling experience a smooth one! All the extras they provide, even after the deal is complete shows how much they truly care about their clients!”

Dan Ricsi, Buyer, Hailey, “We had the pleasure of working with Rachel. From start to finish she was very responsive, kind, and a constant professional. We look forward to the opportunity to work with her in the future.”

Dr. Carol, Buyer, East Fork, “Rachel has been a wonderful realtor for me. I am greatly appreciative of her abilities to listen and be endlessly patient as an Inexperienced homebuyer takes the time to figure out how in the world We will find the right house and negotiate all the details. Through a number of starts and stops, Rachel got clear about what I was looking for, and I now own a house that is far and above what I ever imagined I would buy.  I’m thrilled to be living in Wood River Valley and am eternally thankful to Rachel for helping me find my new refuge in the canyon.”

Gaylen Edwards, Buyer, Sun Valley, “Rachel is awesome! Working with her on my purchase was a real pleasure. Low pressure, very knowledgeable, very responsive and well connected with what is happening locally. Highly recommended.”

Justin & Christine Hellmann, Sellers, Sun Valley, “We are extremely pleased with Rachel and her representation of us as sellers and now potential buyers. She is honest, straightforward, knowledgeable and always available when questions inevitably arise. We have been impressed with how she communicates with other parties on our behalf; her pleasant demeanor is always present, yet she is assertive when the situation calls for it. We can’t imagine working with anyone else as we navigate this unique market!

Will Hemmings and Cat Downs, Sellers, Sun Valley,  “We recently closed the sale on our home of many years. We had the pleasure of working with Rachel to get our house sold and move on to the next phase of our life. Throughout the process, Rachel was incredibly helpful and utterly professional. She always answered our questions quickly but thoughtfully and helped navigate us through steps of the process we didn’t even know we should have questions about. Ours was a deed-restricted property, which made the sale even more complicated, but her determination and talent helped us get the property sold. I have no doubt that without her help our property sale would have taken much longer, and we would have netted less money. We can’t thank her enough.”

Jenna & Willie Resko, Buyers, Hailey,  “We highly recommend Rachel as a Realtor. She listens carefully to your needs, wants, price and delivers! Rachel found us a perfect house for our family of 3, our 2 dogs and our budget. She has excellent negotiation skills as well as interpersonal skills. She not only communicated with us through the whole process but she still checks in to this day. We are thankful for Rachel, she’s the best.”

John & Carolyn Lloyd, Sellers and Buyers, Ketchum,  “Knowledge of the real estate market, patience, professionalism, kindness and respect are only a few words to describe Rachel. We are thrilled to be working with her. Rachel has gone beyond all expectations we had for the selling of our home.”

Barbara Slough, Seller, East Fork, “Rachel Wolfe is the realtor you should use! She is excellent! I knew Rachel as an honest dependable person and had heard she was a very professional and hard working realtor when I asked her to sell my house for me. She was all of the above and much more! She was most attentive to my needs, she put an enormous amount of energy into holding open houses and showing the house to prospective buyers and her attention to detail was far more than I had ever expected. I would have been very happy with Rachel as my realtor in any ordinary sale of a house, but as it turned out, the sale of my house was anything but ordinary. As we progressed through my sale, previously unforeseen issues surfaced and Rachel went above and beyond what anyone could expect in dealing with these challenges. Her enthusiasm never lagged, she never complained, she kept my spirits up and as far as I am concerned, she made this sale happen through her hard work. Rachel researched, called in needed expertise from a real estate lawyer, consulted with the Board of Realtors Legal Hotline, interfaced with contractors, went to Planning and Zoning meetings with me and generally was there for me at all times. She went above and beyond anything I could ever have expected throughout this sale. Rachel is also an excellent communicator. She followed up in detail after each showing and she kept all parties well informed on all aspects of the sale at all times. As a first-time home seller, Rachel guided me through the entire process of what I needed to do to present the house well, she informed me always of what the next step might entail, she explained each step of the transaction as many times as needed so that it was very clear that I understood exactly what I needed to know, she was unfailingly polite and professional and she gave me all the guidance I needed to sell my home I could not have been more impressed or happier with Rachel as my realtor. I recommend her to any prospective buyer or seller. Thank you Rachel for all your hard work and dedication.”

Veronique Forgeat, Buyer, Hailey,  “I would like to express my gratitude to you for all your hard work, dedication, patience and professionalism. You have been wonderful through the whole process and I am so glad that Sandy recommended that I give you a call to show me around. As you know, I fell in love with Copper Ranch but I was very scared to go ahead. I could not have done it without you. You went beyond your duties to help me. Thank you so much.”

Adam and Shanna Angel, Buyers, Hailey, “Buying our house in Hailey was our 8th real estate transaction over the past 20 years. Between seller’s and buyer’s agents we’ve seen a pretty good cross-section of personalities. When we decided to move to the Wood River Valley the huge volume of agents with perfectly polished websites and headshots was overwhelming. It was seemingly impossible to choose! By taking our time and waiting for the stars to align, a friend told us about Rachel. From that point on, the process rolled out beautifully. Rachel took great care to help us understand the local market and the neighborhoods, while she took the time to learn about our professional, social, educational, and recreational needs. We are still discovering ways in which her local knowledge and understanding guided us to the right house in the right location. We are lucky to have had her guidance in finding the right home at a price we could handle.”

Karen and George Mulhern, Buyers and Sellers, Sun Valley, Ketchum, and Hailey, “What a pleasure it has been to work with you and we will recommend you to anyone we know that is looking for property in the Sun Valley area! You are one of those people in this world that does above and beyond the call of duty and we were lucky enough your cross your path. Over the last year, we have had the pleasure of working with Rachel on two real estate transactions. Rachel is simply the best real estate agent that either of us ever worked with. She is always available and responsive, has a tireless work ethic, has provided excellent counsel and has always treated us, and those on the other side of the transactions, with respect and complete integrity. We wanted to make sure that you knew what an incredible representative Rachel is for your organization. We are, and will continue to, recommend Rachel to anyone that asks us if we know of a good agent in Sun Valley. We will also be using Rachel for any of our Sun Valley real estate transactions going forward”

Cindy and Rob Hambleton, Sellers and Buyers, Ketchum, “Rachel Wolfe represented us in purchasing a house. She did a wonderful job! Her attention to detail was fantastic! She was always available, always helpful and always positive! She is a gem in the real estate business. We have the utmost respect for her and would recommend her wholeheartedly now and in the future!”

Tracy Kezele, Buyer, and Seller, Hailey, “I recently purchased a condo in Hailey, ID. Rachel Wolfe was my real estate agent and she was terrific! Rachel showed me a variety of properties based on my input as to what I was looking for. She regularly sent me listings and updates which kept me informed regarding the market. I live in Washington and visited Hailey in April to view potential properties. Because of Rachel’s thoroughness, I viewed a condo that fit my needs perfectly and we submitted an offer that was readily accepted. Rachel was flawless during the whole purchasing process. I had a significant setback with my original lender right before I was due to close. Rachel made repeated efforts to obtain the particular information about the entire condo project that they were (finally) requesting. Their request was unreasonable and was not requested by any other lender. Unfortunately, I had to secure a different lender and start all over again. Rachel was pivotal in communicating with the seller’s agent and allowing me to get an extension. This was an emotional time for me, but Rachel’s calm and reassuring manner guided me through. I closed in July and am now a proud owner of a condo in Hailey. Rachel Wolfe is not only a top-notch real estate agent; she is a wonderful and caring individual. I would absolutely recommend Rachel to anyone looking to buy or sell properties.”

Joe Landbrug, Buyer and Seller, Hailey, “I initially contacted Rachel about some of the listings that were posted on the RE/MAX of Sun Valley website. She responded quickly and immediately began the process of educating me as a first time home buyer as to the steps involved in buying a home. Rachel seems to understand my level of expectations of customer service without me ever having said a word to her. Rachel put forth the effort at every turn in the process to provide what I would call exceptional customer service. Rachel kept me informed almost daily as to what was happening with the market, how my offer was proceeding, and what to expect throughout the entire process from start to finish. I have been more than pleasantly surprised in my professional dealings with Rachel Wolfe.  Rachel Wolfe was absolutely essential to my success in purchasing my first home. I couldn’t have done it without her, and having gone through the process once, I wouldn’t want to do it again without Rachel Wolfe as my agent. Thank you, Rachel, for putting the customer first and providing the level of service that is not too often found these days. ”

Greg and Kathy Boylston, Sellers, Hailey, “We just wanted to thank you for all you did to help us sell our Hailey lot. Thanks to your knowledge of the real estate market we were able to sell the lot in a reasonable amount of time at a good price. When we got offers that we might have considered you counseled us to wait for better ones and you were right. You kept us thoroughly informed of the market conditions and you gave us excellent advice on every offer we received. We know you had other clients, but you always made us feel like we were the most important. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a realtor.”

Kari Haugen, Buyer, Hailey, “Thank you so much for all your help in the process of buying my house.  I really appreciate your patience and diligence through this process.  I really could not have done it without you.”

Jim Hoffman, Seller, Hailey, “I just wanted to give you a personal thank you for all you have done to sell my house.  You are the best Realtor I have worked with.  I have no doubt you will be a success. I have had the distinct privilege to have Rachel Wolfe as my real estate agent when selling my house.  She was my agent through an extremely tough market… she never lacked enthusiasm through the process.  She held frequent open houses throughout the whole process.  She also kept me informed of what was happening as well as on potential buyers’ comments. She also went above and beyond what was expected from real estate agent.  I whole heartily recommend her to anyone in need of the services of a real estate agent.”

Ted and Victoria Miller, Buyers, Fairfield, “From the very start when we began looking for property in the Blaine County and Camas County areas, you have been so helpful and proactive.  We are thrilled to have been able to work with you in this process. We look forward to working together in the future, and believe the friendship we have started will be a lasting and enduring one.” “You made buying a home a very enjoyable experience.”

Philip Barnard, Seller, Sun Valley,  “In the past, I have been involved with Realtors who gladly took the listing and then disappeared or those who, when a sale was not forthcoming quickly, got discouraged and stopped trying. The recent recession knocked the bottom out of the real estate market just as I needed to sell my home. For a year Ms. Rachel Wolfe never stopped working for a sale. Constant internet updates, follow-ups, and endless open houses resulted in a sale that pleased everyone. Ms. Wolfe never backed off or slowed her efforts while continuing to care for all her client’s requirements. She was recommended to me and I will gladly recommend her to anyone wishing a genuine professional real estate agent. I will, in any of my future real estate business, only be represented by Ms. Wolfe.”

Tish Short, Buyer, Ketchum, “Rachel Wolfe is an outstanding realtor.  She makes the process of purchasing your dream property a reality.  She listens, is extremely thorough, and guides you through from start to finish.  I began my search in March and finally bought a place in August.  She was patient and took me to various condos in the Ketchum, Sun Valley, and Warm Springs areas.  We went back to the same condo sometimes 2-3 times until I found the perfect place.  I can’t thank her enough for her expertise and top-notch service.”
