Jim Windmiller, a 15-year real estate veteran and owner of The Windmiller Group – Keller Williams, shares what every seller needs to know and how he stands out in his local market. Read on to learn more!
What inspired you to pursue real estate? I owned a masonry business and would tell people about the homes I was working on. They would visit the homes and want to buy them, so I realized I could sell homes better than do masonry work!
What is your number one piece of real estate advice for clients? Keep the house clean and well maintained, you never know when a potential buyer might want to drop in.
With technology playing a large part in real estate today, how does your mobile device help you manage your business? I am just now starting to use video for home tours. It will be a great tool to showcase my clients’ listings and give potential buyers a glimpse of their potential future home.
How do you differentiate from other agents in Idaho Falls? I was born and raised here and I am very proud of our community. I truly believe in the importance of giving back and being involved outside of real estate; I sit on the board at Citizens Community Bank and Idaho Urgent Care.
Do you have any recommendations for those looking to call Idaho Falls home? You have to see the water falls down on the Snake River (not to mention the majestic Teton Mountain Range as a back drop). There are extensive outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, camping, skiing and snowboarding. We are in close proximity to a number of national parks including Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Craters of the Moon.
Idaho Falls has all the features of big city living, but still embraces a small town charm. When you need a bite to eat, be sure to visit Smitty’s restaurant – it is the best in town!
How has HomeFinder.com helped your business? It has definitely helped me reach more buyers and my sellers love the exposure HomeFinder.com gives their homes.
