Eagle speaks for itself….the river, the trees, the large acreage properties. A friendly feel, a multitude of recreation options and some of the best restaurants in the Treasure Valley.

On many Saturday mornings you will see residents strolling the quaint historic downtown as they shop at the Saturday market or eat breakfast at one of the sidewalk cafes. Families can be seen walking or riding bikes along the Boise River trail or in the Eagle foothills. [Read the Blog]

Each area has its own attraction and charm, whether that is a stunning mountain view, living by a pond or river, or having a place for horses, you’ll find it in Eagle, Idaho. 

Why Work with Alei and Her Team?

"...Alei's work ethic."

- Video Walkthrough-

"We could not have been more pleased with our experience purchasing a home through Alei. We made several trips from out of town to look at homes with her but even more helfpul were the video walkthroughs she did for us with thoughtful commentary on homes we were not able to visit in person. She has a good sense of what homes/neighborhoods are valued at and was able to get us into the home we wanted at the price we wanted.

— Parker Fillmore

-Always Ready to Serve-

"We approached Alei randomly after she gave another couple a tour of a home in the Legacy subdivision in Eagle. She was so friendly and professional in talking with us. We learned more about Eagle in 10 minutes than with two weeks researching online.

We asked her to represent us on the spot. After a well-advised offer the seller accepted our price the very next day! We have been loving life in our new home. Thanks to Alei’s always ready-to-help personality. Thank You!”

— Kim & David Montgomery

-Has Mastered How Deals are Done-

"Alei has mastered the art of getting deals done. She cares about the process. She is the consummate professional who always puts her clients’ best interests first. She is one of the most honest and enthusiastic Agents you will find. There is no ego involved. She consistently sells luxury homes and strategically navigates complex transactions with an upbeat attitude.

During negotiations, Alei knows how to protect her clients and solve problems of any size to ensure that all parties feel like they are getting a fair deal. You can tell Alei believes that at the end of the day it’s about the person being happy."

— Michael Sinclair

-Knowledge is Crucial-

"Knowledge is crucial in any real estate transaction. Every person has a unique set of financial circumstances. I would say one of Alei’s gifts is an intuition of each side’s trigger points. Her marketing was the best I’ve ever seen. Yet, it was her networking with the other Agent and knowing who the buyers are that made the deal happen."

Every sale is complicated meaning every detail is important. Alei is completely committed to selling the property - no matter what she has going on at the time, you'll feel important. From the first meeting talking to Alei it was obvious she represents class and style."

— Linda & Greg Mansfield

-Passionate and Sincere-

"Because of her unrelenting work ethic, her sincerity, her knowledge of the area, her knowledge about the market and where it’s going, we would not even think about using another Realtor. Alei has consistently gone way beyond the call of duty.

Alei is genuine, she’s caring, she’s friendly, and she’s real. Alei never made us feel like we were wasting her time. Alei is passionate and loyal - a dealmaker with the highest integrity. She is a wonderful person inside and out."

— Wayne & Holly Martin

-Cream of the Crop-

"As a custom home builder in an always changing environment, it’s important to have a Realtor that is at the top of her game and knows what is happening in the market moment to moment. That’s only one of the things we appreciate about Alei. She is on top of every market condition and ready to give insightful and honest advice at a minute's notice.

When you work with Alei she isn't just your Agent, but a trusted friend who looks out for your best interest. Alei has our utmost respect - she is knowledgeable and most importantly, high integrity. Alei is an incredible person and her professional service is cream of the crop."

— Juston & Kristine Hall

-Expertise and Strategy-

"Alei is beyond words. She provided the best service and professionalism in finding our dream home. Alei spent countless hours, days, and months, assisting us in finding the house that fit all our needs. Her expertise in the market, real estate regulations, and the best strategy made our home buying experience go very smoothly.

My wife and I have bought several houses in the past and working with Alei was the easiest and least stressful of our experiences. She is positive and happy all the time. There were many coals in the fire, yet Alei balanced the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home flawlessly. Alei is not only our Realtor, but due to her great personality we call her our Good Friend!"

— Claudio & Ann Vela
