My philosophy is simple. Clients come first.
I provide complementary professional photography & staging on my listings. I use original artwork, eclectic props and unique furniture. A complementary pre-inspection of the home is included as well! I am up to date on the Real Estate market and a savvy negotiator. Will go to the end of the earth to help a Buyer find their perfect home.
My philosophy is simple: clients come first. I pledge to be in constant communication with my clients, keeping them fully informed throughout the entire buying or selling process. I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. I don’t measure success through achievements or awards, but through the satisfaction of my 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 did an outstanding job for us as both our buyer's and seller's agent. She is smart, creative, intuitive and knows this whole real estate thing inside and out. I suspect that she is part magician too, given what she was able to produce at the “enth” hour over and over as we went through several bidding/negotiating/closing obstacles on our now forever home. Her handling of the sale of our previous home was again, outstanding. Her suggestions of what needed to be done to prep the house for sale were spot on. She did an amazing job of staging, photographing and pricing the house for the listing such that we were inundated with offers. The house sold quickly and for more than we had expected. We found Amy to be a great communicator and a positive force of nature who always looked out for our best interests. Thanks Amy, that was amazing!

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?
– Kara Rutherford, Seller – North End, Boise, ID
Amy was fantastic to work with! Prompt with communications, super knowledgeable, a flair for staging, savvy with negotiations, and genuinely helpful. She identified the appropriate listing range and we sold for more than expected. She also helped to connect us with a colleague in another state who helped us find a new home.
– Karl and Shelby LeClair, Sellers in Boise, ID
Amy helped me with the purchase of my home from 400 miles away. Communicating with her for my requirements was easy, her knowledge of the local market and neighborhoods was fantastic. She set me up with a local home inspector, and Mortgage company. I look forward to working with Amy in the future.
– Steven Bryant, Buyer from Portland, OR.
Great Agent! Amy O’Brien was invaluable to us and 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!!
— Randy & Barbara Lai Steele, Buyers from Bend, OR
Amy and her associate were a solid choice. No hassles. No waiting around for answers. They were always on time, realistic and very professional. They have helped us purchase and sell land in Idaho.
– Josh Olson Buyer & Seller land in Cascade & Atlanta, ID
I’d actually never sold a home before. I’d also heard all the horror stories, so was a bit apprehensive. No worries!! Amy has been unfailingly helpful as we’ve plowed through the many issues faced with selling our mother’s house, definitely a “fixer-upper,” and have handled everything beautifully, from helpful hints about staging to figuring out repairs to dealing with our existing renter. She 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. She has 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 any more highly — if I end up buying a new home, I will definitely come back to her — I’ve found my realtor for life!
— Kathleen Rockne, Seller in Boise, Idaho
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.
Heidi Bunting, Seller of land, Atlanta, ID
There are not enough good words to describe Amy as she was there for us in our buying process. She is knowledgable 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.
– Carol Gilson, Built a home in Star, Idaho
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
Amy is an excellent real estate agent, very thorough, she does a great job staging the property to maximize the price you get out of it and makes the sale quicker. She is great to work with and I highly recommend her.
