It all started innocently enough with a semester off from college back in 1990 to spend the winter skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho. Somehow I possessed the good sense in between powder days to pass the Idaho real estate license exam.
Upon completion of several years at USC and graduation from The University of Colorado, it was back to Sun Valley as an intern in a local real estate office, then back to my hometown of Sacramento, California for what turned out to be a 10 year stint as a commercial real estate broker, manager and investor.
Fast forward to 2002, wife-to-be in tow, we were back in Sun Valley, this time to stay. I built a bunch of spec houses, brokered what I built, did some small development deals and settled in for the long haul in local real estate brokerage where you’ll find me today.
I live in Hailey with my wonderful wife, Kristen and three beautiful children Charlie (9), Anders (6) and Honor (3). Every once in a while I squeeze in a little fly fishing, golf or skiing.
"Thank you for making this deal a pleasurable one; I appreciated your proactive style of doing business. Let’s do another one!”
“You’re the absolute best!!”
”We are so pleased! Thank you so much Sun Valley Life! I really really appreciate your help. We should have done this a long time ago. Thanks again!”
“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. Sun Valley Life offers true customer service.”
“The Sun Valley Life team knows the homes, the market and the other brokers. They quickly realized what I was looking for and helped me zero in on the right property for me and my family. We were able to negotiate an awesome price, and I could not be happier.”
“The first thing that drew us to Sun Valley Life RE 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 an 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 Sun Valley Life for all of your real estate needs. We plan on using Sun Valley Life to sell our current home.”
“Jamie and I have worked together on multiple real estate transactions over the 10 years I have known him. He is professional and trust worthy. 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.”
