HOMESMART PREMIER REALTY
Idaho Falls, ID 83401
As an agent who's an expert in this South East Idaho area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close. We sell Homes In Idaho Falls, Shelley, Blackfoot, Pocatello, Rexburg, and all areas between.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"In short, Mertello is awesome. We were long distance buyers and he was quick to video with commentary or live video for us. We were not on a hurry and he stuck with us. We had him going for about a year before we found the right place (which had difficult sellers). He made it all good. I cannot express how much he helped us. We went with him because he was so good with our daughter's family 2 years prior with a similar situation. He is the best. this was all off the top of my head. I hope this helps others understand how great you are."

"Mr. Baird was the best Realtor I could have asked for in my situation. I was in an upside down mortgage and had tried for almost four years to complete a short sale. It wasn't until I picked up the phone and contacted Mr. Baird that I finally saw the light at the end of my long tunnel. He was professional and extremely knowledgeable about the short sale process. Shortly thereafter, offers seemed to just pour in and finally we got one that the bank agreed to. I KNOW that this would never have been possible if it weren't for Mr. Baird's persistence with the mortgage company and dedication to get my home sold. Thank you for everything!"

"Mertello is by far the best real estate professional I have ever encountered in my 30 years of moving around the world as an Army officer during which time I have purchased nine houses, sold seven houses, and held one property as a long term rental. Three fundamental qualities set Mertello apart: 1) He simply works harder and smarter at provding his clients what they seek than anyone else. 2) He is meticulously fair and honest in all of his dealings (and he simply does not tolerate anything less from those who work for him). 3) He is a wise and seasoned busines professional who places his clients' needs above his own. Thus, when dealing with Tello in any of his myriad roles (e.g., buyers' agent, sellers' agent, broker, and the like), you can be certain he is giving you the most objective and complete information available, period. But...beyond that he simply provides the most complete, accurate, and well organized answers to clients' specific questions I have ever observed in "

"WE HAD OTHER AGENT LIST OUR PROPERTY WITH NO RESULT OR CONTACT OR COMMUNICATION FROM THEM AT ALL EVEN AFTER THE LISTING ENDED. THAT WAS NOT THE CASE WITH TELLO. HE WOULD CONSTANTLY KEEP IN TOUCH WITH US EVEN IF HE HAD NO NEWS OR PROSPECTS TO BUY. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TELLO FOR A LISTING. HE SOLD BARE PROPERTY FOR MY WIFE AND I. WE DID NOT GET OUR ASKING PRICE SO THAT WAS WHY I GAVE HIM A 4-STAR RATING RATHER THAN A FIVE. (I DO NOT THINK IT WAS FOR A LACK OF TRYING THOUGH. WE MAY HAVE GAVE IN A LITTLE TO QUICKLY TO SELL) TELLO WAS EXTREMLY HONEST IN HOW HE REPRESENTED BOTH PARTIES. HE MADE A STATEMENT IN THE BEGINGING ABOUT A SINGLE AGENT SELL AGREEMENT PRICE WHICH HE HONERED AT CLOSING. MY WIFE AND I FELT VERY SATISFIED WITH THE FINAL RESULT OF THE SALE. WE ARE CURRENTLY CONTINPLATING SELLING OUR HOUSE AND WE WOULD DEFINATLY USE TELLO AGAIN AS OUR REPRESENTING AGENT. GENE HARRAL, CHRIS CAPSON"
