You both helped so much to get us through this...
Thanks for all you did for Mom's estate. You both helped so much to get us through this. The two places sold much sooner than we anticipated- so thankful. Also thanks again for the beautiful calendar at Christmas.

Our vision of a dream home is now a reality...
Looking out my window this morning, I was delighted to see a soft, fluffy blanket of fresh snow. Hardly able to contain my excitement, I grabbed a cup of steaming coffee, bundled up, and strapped on my cross country skis. I have always hoped to live in a home where I could ski out my back door and into the woods. Thanks to Joe and Darlene of Pace-Kerby, our vision of a dream home is now a reality.

Joe and Darlene were extremely helpful in finding a home that was perfect for our family. They took the time to really get to know us, to understand our personal tastes, and to search for properties that captured the essence of who we are. Thanks to their tireless efforts, we are now living in our dream home, a very special place our entire family will enjoy for years to come.

Finding a well suited property was a priority to us when we moved to Bonners Ferry, but equally important was connecting to our new community. Moving can be very stressful and Joe & Darlene went above and beyond to help us make a smooth transition. They were so warm and welcoming, and took the time to provide us with useful resources. Additionally they introduced us to so many nice people, resulting in friendships that will last a lifetime. Among these new friends, Joe & Darlene are definitely at the top of the list!

We highly recommend Joe Farrell & Darlene Schneider of Pace-Kerby Real Estate and have no doubt that new clients will be extremely pleased with their high level of professionalism and expertise, as well as their compassion and integrity.

The entire process was fun...
"Darlene and Joe, we would like to thank you in helping us find what we think is the most beautiful place in Bonners Ferry. We appreciate all the time you took to show us around the community and the wealth of knowledge you both have about the area. We would also like to thank you for the time you put into the negotiation of the property we purchased. You were so very patient with us and even though we returned to Iowa it felt like we were next door. The communication between all parties was awesome and things went so smoothly. Thanks for helping make our retirement dream come true. We would recommend the two of to anyone looking for property in the Northern Idaho area. The entire process was fun and wish we could have stayed longer. By the way Joe those were the best Plums I have ever had. Thanks for everything and see you soon."

They helped us find a great house...
"We were planning a return trip to northern Idaho and several other areas to make a final decision on our retirement destination, so I searched the internet for realtors and sent an email to Joe in Bonners Ferry. He drove us around some to get a better idea of the layout, and we ultimately decided this was the place for us. Once we sold the house in Memphis and quit work, we headed this way and the rest is history. Joe and Darlene patiently answered all of our questions and never rushed us or pushed us to buy bigger than we wanted or could afford. They helped us find a great house with the most beautiful view and we're living the dream in Moyie Springs."

We could not have asked for a better realtor...
"The service and personal attention we received from Joe Farrell was exceptional from a realtor. His knowledge of the local market was first rate in helping us search for just theright piece of property. He paid special attention to every detail to best meet our unique needs. Much of our communication was doen via email and telephone. Joe was prompt in returning our calls and responding to the many "waht about this one?" links we would send him! Regardless of whether one is buying or selling, we would highly recommend Joe Farrell to lend a hand and his expertise. We could not have asked for a better realtor to guide us through this process. We gained a professional realtor, a home, and a new friend in the process."
Dory and Michael McIssac
he directed us with his knowledge of the area properties...
"If you are looking for a realtor who has your interests at heart then you will want to employ Mr. Farrell. Once he understood what we were looking for he directed us with his knowledge of the area properties. When Mr. Farrell told us that we would probably not like a certain property because it did not meet our criteria he was right every time. What we liked most about Joe is that he NEVER pressured or hurried us, he was very patient and always kept us informed. Joe showed us many beautiful properties and we found one that met our criteria and our budget. In fact we liked several of the properties so well that we are trying to figure out how to acquire more of them."

You can't ask for a better agent to work with...
"Joe helped me and my immediate family find the place that best suited our needs here in North Idaho. Let me tell you we were picky. But Joe never pressured us. He showed us listing after listing for weeks. Eventually we came full circle and chose one of the first listings that he picked for us. Guess he knew better than we did :-) After deciding on the home, the negotiations had to take place remotely as we lived in Colorado at the time. Joe worked with us through the negotiations process, and it couldn't have gone smoother. I didn't feel 1200 miles away as I knew Joe was honestly representing me here locally. Joe has been in the area for a long time and knows it extremely well. You can't ask for a better agent to work with. Honest man, no pressure, looks out for your best interest, doesn't rush you, actually answers his phone when you call! Others in my extended family have closed a number of deals through Joe, and they all love working with him."

Thanks for the wonderful, professional and personalized support...
"We would like to sincerely thank you for everything you did for us in the recent purchase of our home. Not only were you absolutely professional, you both went above and beyond the call of duty as realtors, ensuring that every need was met and any issue was quickly resolved and with a great deal of compassion. Not only were you available for us during office hours, you were available for us during off hours, or anytime we had a question or just needed a listening ear on something that came up regarding the process. You sat through brainstorming sessions with us and explained anything we didn't understand. We would gladly recommend both of you to any prospective or future clients. Thanks for the wonderful, professional and personalized support you provided to us! We love our home!"

Joe's help was invaluable...
"We were fortunate to connect with Joe Farrell and Tanja Farrens when we arrived in Bonners Ferry seeking our retirement home. We are proud to call them both friends after working with them for nearly two years. On our first trip we arrived unannounced, without an appointment. Joe and Tanja made time for us and helped us see a range of properties, meeting our too tight time schedule. It was immediately clear that both of them were listening carefully. They were not just interested in selling a piece of real estate. They were truly interested in introducing us to the community and in matching us to a home. And with friendly, low key, highly professional service they did just that. That home turned out to be a parcel of land. Their interest and help continued after the sale, easing the long distance building process considerably. Joe's help was invaluable helping us find the right builder for us. He facilitated introductions to two builders. He worked with the builder we selected to identify two spectacular building sites on the property. Eighteen months after the sale, both Joe and Tanja continue to share their extensive local knowledge generously, helping us get things done efficiently and making us feel welcome to Bonners Ferry."

I chose him intuitively, based on his warm smile...
"Joe Farrell was instrumental in smoothly facilitating a major life change for my husband and me. We were inspired to move from our life-long home, adventuring nearly a thousand miles from family and friends. We were uncertain how to proceed. Joe's photograph appeared among many advertisements on Realtor.com, and I chose him intuitively, based on his warm smile. We met him, looked for properties over the course of a mere two days and ultimately followed his instinct as to the sort of property which would best suit us, satisfying both our aesthetic sensibilities and his understanding of what would be practical. My husband and I would have been less receptive to a sales representative with a glib manner or a worn line of rhetoric. Joe's intelligence and authenticity coupled with a calm and unassuming demeanor instilled our trust. We have never looked back since finding our dream lot- never a doubt or sense of regret. It has taken us two years since we bought our property through Pace-Kerby to make the big move and build our house. Each time we came north the visit our new property, Joe made the effort to meet with us informally, as a friend. He took us to lunch, introduced us to people, directed us to various agencies for help and generally made us feel welcome and comfortable in our new community. As the building proceeded, Joe dropped in often to check it out and say "hi". This move has been a huge milestone in our lives. The one anxiety I had experienced was the fear of loneliness. I cannot imagine how differently I might have felt, beautiful though this place is, had Joe not extended to us his expertise, his generosity and his genuine kindness."
