Our philosophy is simple. Clients come first.
Our philosophy is simple: clients come first. We pledge to be in constant communication with our clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. We believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, we haven’t done our job. We don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of our clients.
Amy O’Brien has always had an eye for beauty and a gift for creating welcoming settings, but she perfected her hammer-and-nails skills in the small mining town of Atlanta, Idaho. A lover of history, Amy has spent the past 20 years rescuing some of the state’s oldest buildings and rehabbing them in Atlanta. Amy, who was formerly a professional dancer in New York City, is an artist, active arts supporter, as well as longtime renovator of historic homes. Her structural understanding and her talent for staging have paid off for her clients: She can help sellers make their homes look their best, while opening buyers’ eyes to a building’s potential.
Amy was incredible! She went above and beyond when she helped us get our house ready to sell. We sold our house in less than 2 days on the market for above asking price. What else can you ask for in a real estate agent

Great team of people! Amy O’Brien and Charles Smart were invaluable to us. They worked tirelessly to help us find our forever home. We recently relocated from Bend, OR to Boise. We love our North End home, it’s perfect! Thank you! Would highly recommend these realtors!!
— Barbara Lai Steele, Buyer from Bend, OR
I’d actually never sold a home before when Charles and Amy were referred to me by my brother, also a realtor (in Twin Falls); I’d also heard all the horror stories, so was a bit apprehensive. No worries!! Charles and Amy have been unfailingly helpful as we’ve plowed through the many issues faced with selling our mother’s house, definitely a “fixer-upper,” and they’ve handled everything beautifully, from helpful hints about staging to figuring out repairs to dealing with our existing renter. They did such an amazing job marketing the home that we had offers immediately, people standing in line for the open house and multiple full price offers within hours after that. They have been unfailingly responsive, either by phone or email, and have made this whole rather emotional process so much easier than it might have been. I couldn’t recommend them any more highly — if I end up buying a new home, I will definitely come back to them — I’ve found my realtors for life!

Amy was a professional dancer with two of the major artists in the 1980′s/90′s. In this experience Amy obtained the skills of discipline, creativity, seeing work through to fruition and the ability to interpret another’s thoughts and ideas. I believe these are corresponding traits for a realtor. The field requires discipline, creativity, interpretive skill to communicate with the buyer and what they believe they want and need and bringing the sale to completion in a timely manner with thorough documentation and knowledge. Amy acted as my agent in selling my land in Idaho. As I live in Canada I was reliant on her direction and advise to a large degree. I was pleased with the service provided.

Charles and Amy were such a great team in helping me find first my home! They were wonderfully knowledgeable and patient, it was clear they really wanted to help me find a house I loved and weren’t just in it for the sale. From showing me house after house in 2 ft of snow, and helping my navigate the process to being a huge advocate for me in the negotiating process I was so grateful to have them in my corner!
— Daniella Aguilera Titus, First Time Home Buyer
We were moving from out-of-town although we were pretty familiar with the area. Amy was always available during our ten day trip, knew the area extensively and honed in quickly on the style of house we were looking for. Negotiation went very well and process is flowing smoothly. Highly recommended.
— John & Jodi Larned, Relocated from Colorado to Eagle, ID
There are not enough good words to describe Amy as she was there for us in our buying process. She is knowledgeable and always willing to serve her clients in a professional manner throughout the buying process and even after the closing. She cared about what we wanted and really worked to find just the right property.
