Roger and Linda T.
We began our home search in the Coeur d alene Idaho area and met Annette Lively after seeing a home we were interested in and calling her.
We liked her from the first meeting we had where she gathered information so she knew what we were looking for in a home. She was fun to look at homes with and we enjoyed the easy banter we had together, as we looked around. We didn’t have to look at many before we found one that we liked.
She made the entire process go smoothly by being with us every step of the way and if she didn’t know the answer to a question, she hunted until she found it, getting back to us quickly.
We have never met a realtor that was so responsive and enjoyable to work with! If you are looking to purchase a home in Northern Idaho, we highly recommend Annette because she IS awesome!
A Hard Worker!
Annette Lively is the type of agent that will search tirelessly to find you the home of your dreams. She is friendly, kind, hard working, and highly competent. She helped us navigate through a very tumultuous process that we faced through the VA lenders and she jumped through many hoops to save us the headache. If you are looking for an agent that will go the extra mile she is the agent you want! We cannot say enough good things about her!

We Made It Happen!
I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your dependable, knowledgeable and professional support in the listing and success in selling my home. Buying or selling a home can be an emotional challenge. Though with your diligence, hard work ethic, plus your attention to all details along with your positive outlook created the selling of my home a refreshing and happy experience. I have already and will continue with no reservations to recommend you to my family and friends in their listing and selling of their homes.
Thank you again for a happy and successful experience in this journey.
Sincerely, Karen Ewing
Putting Our Concerns To Rest!
Working with Annette was awesome! She always made herself available to view a home when one came up we were interested in, and she was kind and personable and made the normally stressful home buying process a fun one! We moved here from out of state and even though that can come with some challenges, Annette helped put our concerns to rest. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home here in Northern Idaho.

A Million Times Over!
“Annette Lively is a gem! When buying our Idaho Home, our situation was less than ideal, and she had the patience of a saint. Her positive attitude and outlook made the whole situation so much easier to deal with. She was an absolute blessing to us, and we would choose her again a million times over!”

She Really Listened!
Annette was great to work with in finding a home. She really listened to what we wanted and was all over any new listings that popped up. She was kind enough to dedicate entire days to showing us the homes we picked out. Annette had great advice to give when it came to the back and forth of putting in an offer and negotiating the details. We would 100% use Annette again to buy a home. She made the process as painless as possible.

Our First Home
"Annette was a true pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Her high energy and encouraging attitude were always welcome as we worked hard to find a house within our budget. As first time homebuyers my husband and I were very unfamiliar with the process but Annette always took the time to answer all of our questions and explain things thoroughly. We’re so happy we chose to use Annette to help us find our first home."

Annette represented me as a buyer's agent in my search for my dream house in gorgeous Idaho. Dedicated, knowledgeable, hardworking, funny and friendly, but at the same time an aggressive champion for her clients, are just some ways I can describe her.
From the very first interaction I had with her on our initial phone call, she was engaged, attentive, and confident. She took the time to not only understand my needs but also my motivations and my driving force, all of which helped her find the perfect house for me. Being out-of-state, I relied on her extensive knowledge and expertise of the local real estate market to lead me to the neighborhoods that were a good match for me. She always had the answers and if she didn't, it took her but a few minutes to wrangle the information for me.
Since I wasn't tied to a work or school location my search was very broad but that did not deter Annette. She covered a massive area from the Washington border to the Montana border, searching high and low for the perfect fit. And honestly, I changed my mind a lot. But that just made her more adamant to help me find what I was looking for. Even when I was feeling frustrated, she kept a positive attitude and gave me the confidence to keep looking.
When it came to negotiating contracts, Annette did not miss a beat. She came in prepared with her numbers and was professional, courteous, and timely in negotiating with the seller until both parties were mutually satisfied.
What I admire most about her services is the dedication, determination, the timeliness of her responses, and the knowledge of not only the real estate market but everything else a buyer (especially an out-of-state buyer) would need to know about making Idaho home. But what I cherish the most is having met someone who did not treat me as just another client but took the time and interest in getting to know me as a person and truly forging a partnership in the pursuit of what some may call simply buying a piece of real estate but which Annette appreciates as something way bigger and more meaningful than a purchase.
If you want 5-star first class service for your real estate needs, Annette is the one you should be calling!

On June 11 2019, Mrs. Lively set us on the path to home ownership. I initially contacted her through a Zillow property and as we spoke I described a precise description of what we were searching for. She has an extremely excited voice and said, "I have just the property for you." She got us in touch with a lender to suit our needs and was able to approve us that day! During the process she in my opinion went above and beyond the call of duty. We had decided to home shop from our RV so we wouldn’t be as tempted by a over priced or a property that did not suit us. She spent hours upon hours assisting us with questions about the buying process, lender questions, and title company questions. During this process she became a trusted member of our small family. Annette was able to keep the seller buyer relationship very amicable and handled the negotiation process seemlessly. When the occasional speed bump did come up, she was there to guide us. I could not imagine a better situation in which we could have purchased a home; from the initial contact to walking out of the Kootenai courthouse, her experience, knowledge, and friendship throughout the process she was there. We have made a lifelong friend and a confidant within our Realtor.
When it comes to purchasing a home or selling a home there is no comparison. Every single step of the process she knew exactly what to say regardless of the entity we were talking with, and we are very thankful.

"Annette is the bomb! Talk about a woman who works her butt off! Not only is she extremely skilled & knowledgeable in real estate but her personality is confident, upbeat and very easy to get along with! You know from the start that she is “in it to win it,” her work ethic is top-notch and she wears her heart on her sleeve. We loved working with Annette and would recommend her in a heartbeat!" - Sarah Tonyan
Annette Lively, lives up to her name, she is full of energy and excitement toward helping her clients find a property. We had been looking for awhile when we were referred to work with Annette. She worked relentless to help us, she kept in constant contact with us, and showed us properties almost daily. We were able to find one and have a quick close all thanks to her. I think in this competative market she is the realtor to choose. You cant loose with Annette. Happy Hunting Tim and Teresa
