2012 Professional Services-Best Real Estate Office

Print Article

Windermere/Coeur d’Alene Realty

With a second consecutive “Best Real Estate Office” designation, Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty has much to be proud of in 2012. The locally owned and operated company is home to three offices and 125 staff, two of whom were also voted “Best Residential Realtor” and “Best Commercial Realtor” this year.

With 90 years of experience since Coeur d’Alene Realty opened its doors, the company, and especially owner Don “Pepper” Smock, comprise a regular source of local information and perspective on what seems to be a changing real estate market. On the other hand, the formula for success remains the same.

“We know it is critical to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and other advancements that help people buy and sell real estate, but more importantly we strive to stay committed to those principles that have made us a cornerstone in the real estate industry in our community for so many years,” says Smock.

Windermere/Coeur d’Alene Realty is one big, small family. Smock’s wife Midge, son Duffy, and daughter-in-law Jennifer also work for the company, but Smock sees the whole team as “family,” with their own set of family values.

“Those values include delivering exceptional service, encouraging and supporting each other and putting clients’ interest above our own,” explained Smock.

“Best Commercial Realtor” for 2012 Dan Johnson, a Windermere/CDA Realty Realtor, told North Idaho Business Journal staff that a big part of his success is the company he works for, especially their emphasis on giving.

“(We) believe very strongly about giving back to the communities in which we live.  (Windermere/CDA Realty) has made a sincere commitment to improving the lives of children, families, and neighbors in crisis through their volunteerism, monetary gifts, and the Windermere Foundation,” said Pat Krug, who runs the foundation’s well-known Christmas giving program to aid low-income families in North Idaho.

“The basic philosophy of giving back to the community is role-modeled by the owners and the many representatives and employees who truly believe that they are blessed by their actions. Each representative/employee of Windermere gives a percentage of their fees from every professional sale to the Windermere Foundation,” Krug added.

This full service residential and commercial brokerage has offices at 1000 Northwest Blvd. in Coeur d’Alene (208) 664-9221; 1616 E. Seltice Way in Post Falls (208) 777-9900; and the newest location in Hayden, 867 Prairie Ave. (208) 762-4888. Through the Website CdaRealty.com viewers may easily see every property, listed by every company in the palm on their hands with smart phones.
