About Rachel

I grew up in Tennessee, where my parents were real estate brokers and traveling musicians.  We then moved to Washington, DC, where they continued their real estate business.  I was fascinated with the process of buying and selling and watched my parents form long-lasting friendships with their clients and colleagues.  My dad taught me the process of restoring old homes and getting them registered on the National Registry of Historic Homes.  We lived in one of these historic homes and ran a Bed and Breakfast in another. I have always dreamed of being a real estate agent.

As we helped to develop four Christian schools across the country, my husband and I went through the process of selling, buying, and relocating several times.  This experience not only gave me a broad understanding of the process but also of the joys, challenges, complexities, and emotions that come with moving.  Since Wade became the Head of School at The Ambrose School in Meridian, we have made Idaho our home and have loved being a part of the community.  I enjoy every occasion I get to help others find their place here and to make the often intimidating process of buying or selling a home much less so. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
