I have built more than a career in real estate in North Idaho. My profession began years prior to working as an Associate Broker/Sales Associate; it began as a youth growing up in the Sandpoint area. As a true native and seasoned agent, I preserve the unique role of knowing the ins and outs of Bonner County and the people who share with me the ability to call Sandpoint "home." I know the locals, the businesses and have the insider's perspective that can prove to be a valuable asset to the family that relocates here as well as the people who already reside in Sandpoint.
After receiving my license as a sales associate in 1988, I soon pursued my education to become an Associate Broker. My other designations include Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Residential Construction Certified (RCC) and Accredited Buyer Representation (ABR) designation. Over the years, I have built a strong clientele that I refer to as "friends" and continue to strive for excellence in my profession.
My expertise flows into all areas of real estate including: residential property (to include new construction), waterfront, farm/ranch homesteads and unimproved property. Whether showing property by snowshoe or assisting clients with floor plans and material choices, I enjoy it all. My strengths include the knowledge I have obtained as a life-long resident and my understanding of our local market and the properties within it. I also strive to establish a real connection with my customers. I know that achievement comes from relationships and not the bottom line.
My husband, Michael Kinney (owner and founder of Kinney Construction), relocated to Sandpoint from Alaska in 1992 and has remained one of the area’s most reputable builders. Together, we often work as a team to establish quality homes in the Sandpoint area. Being married to a builder has resulted in my family moving 7 times since 1997! It's safe to say that I've been on "both sides of the fence."
We raised our daughter in the community where I grew up and are happy to have passed on the nostalgic, small hometown experience to her that I fondly remember from my childhood. When I'm not working, you’ll find me enjoying the different seasons of Sandpoint…on the lake, on my mountain bike, skate skiing, classic and/or alpine skiing or (literally) “horsing around” with my daughter.
I know my community and understand the needs of those looking to buy and sell in Sandpoint. I actively strive to make the buying/selling experience of my clients as smooth as possible by assisting every step of the way. I appreciate the anxieties, concerns and questions of my clientele and I work hard to meet their anticipated needs. I am resourceful and I gladly work for my clients' benefit. So when you decide you need an agent, choose the best: Mistie Kinney, I know Sandpoint!
