“I start by listening”


Here at ‘BoisePlaces’ with Silvercreek Realty Group you can count on our people to keep your interests at heart and our conversations private. We work hard, think smart and have a lot of fun. We believe in the Golden Rule, maintaining integrity in difficult situations, telling the truth and cutting to the chase.

We never-ever forget whose boss, so always keep abreast of the daily changes in our real estate climate and what could be perfect for you.

After nearly a lifetime of living in Idaho I am still excited to start each day living and working here. When I do travel, I can't wait to get back home to the green valley at the base of the mountains.

“I have started many notes to you, then left them unfinished as they seem trite and insincere. We owe so very much to you and your energy and insight. Your love for your job is made evident in how well you relate and interact with your clients. We are blessed. With deep fondness!” Karma & Tim Kutkuhn – Buyer Client

“I have worked with Jan before and she continues to meet and exceed my expectations in all areas; integrity, attention to detail, timeliness, etc.” Julie Myers M.S. – Buyer & Seller Client

“Jan had a specific knowledge of my unique neighborhood that resulted in a perfect price point. Nothing was left on the table. She is the most calm, knowledgeable and professional Realtor I have ever known.” Jacki Liddell – Seller Client


One of my objectives for being in this business is to help my potential neighbors find a 'place' to call home here. I will do everything I can to find what's right for you. ”I start by listening.”

If you're already a local and are thinking about another property, you won't find another agent with a better record for getting the job done. I have the stats to prove it!

“Always on the Ball I have had an excellent experience with Jan twice now. She helped me buy my house two years ago and then helped me sell it just recently. She is very professional and always on the ball. I felt as though I had very little to do. With the recent sale of my house, she recommended a home designer, Jim Meadows, who came in and “touched up” some things in my house. It looked like a new house when he was finished and my house sold in 5 days. Without that suggestion from Jan, I’m sure it would have taken quite a bit longer. BoisePlaces picked up a portion of the cost for that as well. I would definitely use her again. BoisePlaces made selling my house hassle-free.” Dr.Devon Davis

“Pain Free … Even Fun! Jan was recommended to us by a very trusted real estate friend and we have been thrilled with the relationship we have with her. ` What stands out is that it has been relatively stress free and an enjoyable experience. Our experience in real estate has been pain free…. even fun!” Jeff & Joanne Jerome

“She Took the Time to Listen & Educate Us She took the time in the beginning to listen and to educate us. There was no hurry; emphasis was on doing what was best for our situation. We look forward to working with Jan again. She is the best Realtor we have ever worked with.” Christy & David Stinson

“We Felt Like We were the Number One Client We both agree that Boise Places’ philosophy on Real Estate representation made our experience awesome. As a first time ‘Home Buyer’, it was nice to see someone who took the title “Professional” seriously. The most important thing to me was that we felt like we were the number one client at all times. We never felt like a nuisance or unimportant. It was comforting to be working with someone who took their job so seriously.” John & Laci McRae

“Goal Oriented, Very Good with People Jan is terrific, professional and very knowledgeable. She is goal oriented with very good people skills and negotiation skills. She knows the area very well and has the right contacts. Jan listens, is open to your ideas. Also she is up to date on the latest marketing tools and computer helps. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending her.” Cornelia Russo

“Her continuous communication, not only during our business with her, but also after the transaction was over she continued to keep us updated on the area. Jan is the best Realtor I have ever had, and we have done plenty of real estate transactions over the past 30 years!” Teresa and Jim Cartmill

“Worked As A Team Jan knew our situation with relocation and the new school year starting. She worked diligently to get us in our home ASAP. She dealt with changes the Relocation Company wanted with our best interest the number one priority. Jan was great! She worked hard and knew what she was doing. Bill Whitehead, did a great job as well. They worked like a tag team. We were very pleased.” Sue and Myron Hottinger

“Your Honest Care is Greatly Appreciated We just wanted to thank you for your professionalism on our Navaho transaction. Your attention to detail and honest care during the transaction are greatly appreciated.” Heidi Creighton and Lisa Stevenson, Group One agents
