My Girlfriend & I were moving from Iowa to Idaho. I had worked with 2 other realtors before my Remax realtor in Iowa led me to Fred Bartel, and thank goodness he did. Fred went above and beyond working with us remotely, putting an offer in for us, taking pictures, and sending videos. Buying a house in the Boise area is very tough and very competitive. We ended up putting offers in on 3 houses before we found our house. Fred spent long days with us chauffeuring us around until we were able to make a deal in the tough market. We were already planning to use a mortgage company we had found through a previous realtor. We were having some problems with that lender so Fred suggested another who he works with. Freds lender made getting our mortgage much easier than the other lender, and saved us over $6000! We closed on our house in April and wouldn't be moving to Boise until June. Fred checked on our house multiple times, made sure the sprinklers were on, had the lawn mowed and just kept a general eye on it until we could get there. I'm 100% confident there is not a better, more experienced, or better connected realtor in the Boise area. I owe a lot to Fred and can never thank him enough.
