Your Neighborhood Expert I am focused on providing you with the best results in the industry.

Whether you are new to the market or an experienced investor, I have the expertise, proven track record, and resources to help you achieve your real estate goals.
Why are Real Estate Brokers and Agents Licensed by the State of Idaho? After all they are just sales people. Right? Idaho considers ours to be a profession, requiring agency relationships and legal commitments above and beyond what you may realize. In addition, Realtors are bound by a code of ethics that is rigorously enforced.
In my work only 5% to 10% of my time that is dedicated to you is spent looking for your new home or advertising your existing home. The other 90% to 95% of my work involves behind the scenes coordination with other professionals to make your transaction as easy and smooth for you as possible. In today's world of increased rules and regulations in the housing industry it is very difficult to navigate your way through it alone. So how do you know which agents or brokers work the hardest behind the scenes? The short answer is to rely on recommendations from other buyers and sellers. Below are comments from clients that I have helped over the years.
Associate Broker Years ago I started my real estate career as a licensed sales agent. In the years that followed, I realized that as a sales agent, I was lacking in the broader base of knowledge that my clients deserved. So, I studied, went back to school, then passed the State of Idaho licensing exam to become a Broker. The distinction between a sales agent and a broker is profound and I am pleased that it has enabled me to be of much better service to my clients.

Chuck and Jeannie – Boise Greg handled obstacles to the sale of our business with a smile and worked behind the scenes to keep the sale going smoothly. He was always available and made us feel like we were his most important clients. He listened to and dealt with all of our concerns professionally, with friendship and good humor. It was a stressful time for us, and he made it a very pleasant experience.
John and Megan – Boise Greg helped us buy our first house. We were moving to Boise from out of state. Greg would send us email regarding houses we might be interested in. He drove to houses we liked and would call and walk through the home describing everything to us. When we came to Boise we found our house in one day. We felt like he was looking out for our best interests, even after we purchased our home. Greg’s efforts went above and beyond what other people have told us they received from their real estate agents. We truly felt like we gained a friend during our experience.
Ray and Debra – Caldwell After four hurricanes in Florida, we decided it was time to move back out west. I have had the pleasure of having Greg Winther first as my realtor and quickly as a dear friend. He walked us through everything and took such good care of us that when we got here our loan package and everything was ready for us. Greg made it easier to get our house than some car dealers to get a car. He has gone above and beyond the call even after closing when we had problems to be addressed by the builder. I cannot think of a better and more professional realtor than Greg.
Lori – Realtor I so enjoyed working with you on our transaction at Crimson. Thank you for all you did to make it smooth on our end of it. We still need to do lunch.
Kim – Boise It has been such a pleasure getting to know you. Thank you for all of your hard work trying to help me get the house. I appreciate your understanding and care for me. You’re a great realtor and friend and an amazing example of a Godly man. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Dani – Middleton I’m sitting here in front of my living room window, thinking about all we’ve come through to get here. I’m soaking it all in and loving the peaceful quiet evening, looking at the beautiful sunset and thanking all for this. Words can never begin to express how very much I appreciate all you have done for me and all the “extras” you gave to me, education, support and encouragement.
Karen – Boise I can’t thank you enough for your professionalism, grace and persistence – most of all, as we worked through the sale of the Bella house.
Gary and Rhonda – Boise We are happy to give Greg Winther our highest reference as a real estate broker. We purchased a home and then sold our existing home in March and April. Greg’s assistance and expertise were invaluable in a very difficult real estate market. Buying and selling homes is an emotional experience. Greg was available when we needed him. He listened patiently and helped us focus on what we wanted. He is a genuinely kind person and we felt comfortable that he had our best interests at heart. He did not try to push us to do anything we were unsure of. Greg was very knowledgeable. He was extremely thorough and researched our questions and issues meticulously. He explained items carefully. We were impressed at how detail oriented Greg was. He kept track of the copious paperwork and the myriad of details and everything went smoothly. Both our lender and the title company remarked at how smoothly things went when Greg was involved. Greg’s guidance was absolutely correct in assisting us both to price our home for sale and to formulate offers to buy. He judged the condition of the real estate market perfectly. We are thankful we met Greg. We are honored to recommend his services.
Heidi – Florida Just a quick note to again say thank you for all the work you did to sell my home in Boise. As you know, I had it on the market over a year ago with a different agent. Although it was listed over twice as long with that agent, more people came through in the six months you and I have been working together than in the total time it was listed with the other agent – and that was in a better housing market! I attribute this to your skill in reaching so many different people via internet, virtual tour, professional color brochures at the home and all the other ways you listed my home. Working with you has been a true joy. Even though I was across the country in Florida you stayed in contact and kept me well informed. I really appreciate the little ways you went above and beyond doing things I couldn’t easily do from down here, like arranging to have it open when the carpet cleaners came in and hiring a handyman to take care of the repairs found on the inspection. Most of all I greatly appreciate the result – selling my home put about $700 a month back in my pocket which is greatly appreciated. I knew with you on the job I did not have to worry about the home. You kept me up-to-date on items that affected my home and words cannot express what all your help has meant to me. If I ever hear of someone that wants to buy or sell a home in Boise, I will definitely recommend you. I love the attention and results I received from you.
Sheila – Boise Thank you so much for all of your help and support this last year. I love my house and am so glad you helped me. Please take this small gift as a thank you.
Carson and Nikke – Boise Just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done for us and for your kindness and support. Merry Christmas!
