Perhaps you’ve heard the famous saying in Sun Valley, "I came for a winter and stayed for a lifetime", well that is my story and it all began in 1983.  With an entrepreneurial spirit, I started a sun tanning business and went from there to retail, to teaching skiing, to guiding fly-fishing for 10 years… all while raising my daughter! In the meantime, in 1989, I purchased my first home and did a full remodel, leaning on the experience I had in Seattle of remodeling homes. Discovering my love for real estate I earned my license in 1999 and in 2002 for the first time, I built two townhomes.

I am lucky to have my children and grandchildren also living here in the Wood River Valley. My love of the outdoors extends to my daughter and son-in- law, who are both deeply involved in the snowboarding program in the valley, as are my grandchildren. I can't say enough how the quality of life we enjoy as a family together living in the valley with it's beautiful vistas and warm welcoming friends. It is my privilege helping people find their Sun Valley life and making their home here in the Valley. I’ll look forward to connecting with you soon!

    We just recently bought a town home in Ketchum and the whole process was very enjoyable due to Jamie Coulter. Being from Boise, we were not able to search everyday for a second home and Jamie was so accommodating when it came to our schedule, which wasn’t convenient at all. But, Jamie always met us with a smile on his face and a cheery attitude. He was also very knowledgeable about each property we looked at and answered most of our questions on the spot. If he could not answer right away, he would check and get back to us via email the very next day. He kept the lines of communication completely open and we never felt lost in the entire process. Jamie went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed while buying, closing and even after the sale. We will recommend Jamie to anyone who is looking to purchase property in the Ketchum/Sun Valley/Hailey area. We enjoyed getting to know Jamie and now consider him a friend. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

    “Jamie went beyond the call of duty while helping us find a house for our daughter. He really looked out for our best interests and stayed on top of things. He played a big part in helping us to create an independent living home (Res-Hab) for three “exceptional” young ladies. We are so pleased with the results: a fabulous house for our daughter and within our budget. Thanks Jamie!”

    “Jamie Coulter has been completely helpful from the moment I became interested in local properties during my job interview until well past the closing date. He selected properties that matched my criteria and was available and flexible with my changing schedule. His attention to every detail and active level of communication kept me abreast of every development in the negotiation and closing process. His assistance with details as we transitioned to the new neighborhood and community relieved a great deal of stress and in fact made the process a pleasure. Coulter Properties offers true customer service.”

    “The first thing that drew us to Coulter Properties was their website. They allow you to search properties at will without getting caught in the trap of creating an account. Once we actually met with Jamie his personality, knowledge and communication sealed the deal to work with him exclusively. Jamie worked with us to show properties at any time. He was always professional, even when we would waiver on whether to buy vacant land or an existing home. He would provide information and showings without hesitation. The property we found provided some challenges for Jamie as the HOA was almost defunct and information resources were hard to find. He worked with many associates, scheduled meetings and did his due-diligence to resolve our concerns and provide us with all of the information needed to make our decision. I would definitely recommend Jamie and his professional team at Coulter Properties for all of your real estate needs. We plan on using Coulter Properties to sell our current home.”

His knowledge of the market has proven to be very helpful. He seems to have earned the respect of other in his industry from other Realtors to lenders. He is efficient and tenacious in navigating deals through the often treacherous waters from searching, due diligence, negotiating, assisting in the loan and title process. I highly recommend Jamie for all of your real estate needs.”
