Testimonials

People with a heart. I highly recommend Templeton.

People with a heart. We suffered a horrific loss in our family due to a drunk driver which resulted in emergency uprooting of our mother from her home in Boise to Texas. We did our best to move everything, empty the house and clean up, but there was just too much. Mark helped arrange contractors, check on the house for us, arranged for beautiful staging, so much more than I could have ever asked for. Kristina, our closing manager was an awesome communicator. I highly recommend Templeton.

We interviewed other realtors, but they didn’t bring what Dawn and her team brought to the table.

The most amazing thing about Templeton Real Estate Group is the team. In the past I have worked with realtors but this is a whole different experience. From the time we first met Dawn she was amazing and full of energy. She was definitely the type of person we wanted to work with. We had interviewed other realtors but they didn’t bring what Dawn and her team brought to the table. Shortly into our first stint working together we decided the timing was not right for us and Dawn was extremely supportive. The next year we reached out and tested the waters again and decided the timing was right and Dawn sprung into action! She sent her staging expert Kayla over to our house and she did a thorough evaluation and gave us action items to get the house show ready. At the same time Meg, our buyer’s agent started gathering information on what kind of home we were looking for and starting sending us listings and taking us out to see potential homes. After we finished up with Kayla’s list Dawn was back in action sending Kayla over with her staging items. When Kayla was done our house looked better than it did when we had first built! Next the professional photographer came in the same day and did an amazing job! The pictures of our home were head and shoulders above 95% of the listing on the market at our above our price range. Dawn had her plan in place for our listing and open house her market research and comps were right on. We had multiple showings in the first evening and multiple offers before we even had the open house only two days later. We had a nice, well kept home but the work that Kayla and the photographer did and the social media and marketing that Dawn did made it stand out of the crowd. During the process of working through the offers Dawn’s expertise was apparent as she helped us navigate the counter offer process and find the best offer beyond just dollars and cents. She understood the ins and outs of what made a certain offer more favorable for quick closing and avoiding unforeseen hassles and pitfalls. Once our offer was in place Meg doubled down on our search and she was available whenever we needed her. She pointed out things we were too blind to see both good and bad and helped us find the right home for us and also helped us negotiate with the seller to get terms that were better than we could have imagined. During the entire process Kristina was always available for all my questions (and I had a lot) and she was driving the process when it came to signatures and other documents and task items. There was always someone available and willing to help.

One of my favorite things about Dawn is her straight-forwardness. Dawn is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with and knowing she will always give the honest answer when you have a question makes the entire process incredibly relaxing and easy. On top of that Dawn’s team has established relationships with every kind of partner imaginable from window cleaners to the BEST HVAC company I have ever dealt with and even a mortgage officer that made the process easy. We will always recommend Dawn and her team without hesitation knowing they are by far the best at what they do!

Kayla was amazing…

Kayla was amazing. She came out for an initial visit and provided us with a full-color document detailing room by room recommendations. She came out for a follow up and answered all questions and made sure our progress was on track. When Kayla came out again for the staging she did a wonderful job. Communication was open both ways and she was very flexible and accommodating. We really appreciated her work.

Sold in no time…at the targeted price!

Mark and Dawn Templeton have been beyond amazing and a thorough pleasure to work with. We are very pleased with our experience of working with this Team. As first time home buyers and first time home sellers we had a long list of must-haves and expectations. In both our experiences of buying and selling the property with this Realtor Group we did not feel that we compromised on any of our needs or expectations.

The selling process topped the buying process with Mark and Dawn. They were able to get our property sold in no time, worked remotely with us, kept us updated about every single event that occurred around the selling process and above all helped us sell the property at the Targeted price.

Our lives have become enriched by the association of this highly empathetic couple who make efforts to understand the need of their client meticulously and execute as promised.

In between moving states and joining new jobs and figuring out a new place, Mark and Dawn made the selling process look really simple.

We are thrilled to recommend this Realty Group and their services for buying/selling any property in this area.

Meg Forest is Amazing!

AMAZING. That is the word to describe Meg Forest. We came to Boise from out of state and after talking with her for only a short period it was like she was our neighbor and wanted to do everything possible to make Boise our home. No request was ever to great and she would tell us, I will do everything to work for you and get that done. The unbelievable part is she actually did it. She stayed on all parties to get our time line accomplished, connected us with people in the community for our kids schools and sports, and really made sure she was on top of every detail. She knew how negotiate, explain details of the transaction, and was just an absolute pleasure to work with.

Kayla is ‘awesome, talented, professional…”

Kayla did a great job, our home looks so good we joke that we don’t want to move now :) She made us want to stay in our house. She’s awesome, talented, professional, and super cool.

The only realtor we will use. Very honest, professional and extremely responsive to our needs. Made the entire home buying experience very pleasant and worry free. We felt like we really didn’t have much to do. They took care of everything which made our experience so pleasant and stress free. No hassle and no worries with an easy process and great home buying experience.
Steve & Carolyn Owens

Positive experience…highly recommend

We had a very positive experience when purchasing out home with Mark’s help. We were living in Illinois and buying a new home in Meridian and couldn’t have done it without Mark’s assistance. He went above and beyond what we expected, and even took the time to take photos for us as our home was being built. We had a few issues and Mark was right there for us. We would highly recommend Mark and Dawn for any real estate needs.
Dan & Nancy Buckley

Smooth & easy process

As a first time home buyer, working with Mark was a very smooth and easy process. My phone calls and emails were always returned in a timely fashion and Mark was always willing to explain anything that seemed unclear to me. Mark understood my comfort level, interests and gave excellent advice and feedback while helping me analyze prices, locations and overall value during my home search.
Sean Steichen

Highly professional, proactice & genuine

As first time home buyers there was only one thing we did not second guess – and that was the choice of realtors we made! Mark and Dawn Templeton were highly professional, proactive and genuine. We were greatly satisfied in our experience with buying a home with them. All the specificities of our wish list were promptly met. We have no hesitations in referring their services to friends and family.

Excellent customer service

After deciding we were ready to sell our home, we met with Dawn to discuss our options. From the beginning, she was helpful and went out of her way to provide excellent customer service. In the meantime, we worked with Krista to stage our home. After we put our home on the market, it only took 3 days before we got a full price offer!

Dawn also helped us find our new home. She asked the right questions and gave great insight to help us narrow down the right home for us.

Throughout the process, Dawn and answered all of our questions timely, gave us “numbers” to analyze and was truly fun to be around. She is very professional and you can tell she really enjoys her job! The Templeton Real Estate Group made selling and buying our homes a seamless experience. We had a great experience and would recommend Dawn and her team to anybody looking to buy or sell a home in the Boise area.

It pays to know the Templetons

We found our ‘needle in a haystack’ dream home with the Templeton’s hard work, community connections and networking. They say it’s not what you know but who you know. It pays to know the Templetons!
The Kerner Family

East Boise real estate experts

We first contacted the Templeton Real Estate Group because they are known as the East Boise Real Estate Experts. We are so glad we hired them. They are honest, easy to work with, and truly care about their clients’ best interest.

The only realtor we use from this point forward

Mark will be the only realtor we use from this point forward. His easy going nature makes a stressful time in your life less stressful. He’s available when you need him, and his use of technology makes the offer process much less cumbersome! Thanks for everything Mark!
Scott & Denise Dart

I would heartily recommend

I was very pleased with Mark Templeton as my real estate agent. He critiqued the house and made sure that it presented well and gave other suggestions as well. After trying to sell my house for two years, he sold it within a month or two enabling me to move to my home town. He was pleasant to deal with and researched answers when I needed more information. I would heartily recommend him as a buying or selling agent.
Sue Russell

Worked hard…best deals possible

Working with Mark was a pleasure. From representing us on a FSBO purchase through the sale of our old home he worked hard to get us the best deals possible. Not an easy task in the market at this time. We would recommend the Templeton Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Bill & Chae Patterson

Very conscientious

My husband and I both feel that because of Mark’s efforts and hard work, we got a fair price for our house. The pictures he put on the internet were very good. He was also very conscientious about keeping us informed at all times. It was very much appreciated.

I couldn’t be happier

Awesome job. Thanks again for all of your help. I couldn’t be happier!

Amazing job…high standard

The Templeton Real Estate Group did an amazing job for us! We lived out of state at the time we put our house on the market. The house needed renovations and they scheduled every appointment and made sure it was done to a high standard.
Mike & Mandy Dillinger

We were her #1 priority

Despite being a very popular and busy agent we always felt as if we were her #1 priority. She patiently worked with us to determine what we truly wanted in a house. It really has been a great experience to work with Dawn and the team.
The Warnock Family

Honest, works hard

Dawn is a professional at the Real Estate Business! She is also one of the few who understands what real negotiation is and how it works. She is honest, works hard and is intelligent about the process of buying and selling real estate. In a nut shell she is the best!
Glen Blumer

Total confidence

Dawn is extremely knowledgeable and an expert in her field. She went way above and beyond the call of duty to make sure my first home was exactly what I wanted and she had my total confidence during the process. I will definitely call on Dawn’s services again in the future.
David Rovetto

Absolute best realtors in Boise

Dawn and Mark Templeton are the absolute best realtors in Boise! Their knowledge is unsurpassed and desire to completely take care of you as the seller or buyer is more than impressive. It’s unheard of! I would recommend them to anyone in any situation. You will get their best- always!
Jane Perlaky

Sold my house in just one day

Dawn is the best. She has a knack for identifying the most likely buyers for your property. Templeton Real Estate Group sold my house in just one day!
Doug Godlove

Thorough & complete market analysis

Suzy and I heartily recommend The Templeton Real Estate Group – If you are interested in selling your house quickly, professionally and at a fair price. She answered all our questions and provided the most thorough and complete market analysis. Dawn and her assistant Krista listened to us when we explained what improvements we could make and which we couldn’t. Their recommendations on these improvements were “spot on“!

Then came the staging. When we got home the night after the staging, we were in awe! It was magnificent. They enhanced and brought out the view, the expansive ceilings, and other home assets that we had unknowingly been hiding.

Because of the slow housing market in March of 2009 we expected our house to be on the market for many months. We were so surprised on the first day the house was listed, to get two (2) FULL price offers! This isn’t something that happens in a buyer’s market.” Obviously the buyers were impressed with the value and presentation of our house. Dawn led us through the offers and closing process in a seamless fashion that made the entire selling process an enjoyable experience. Dawn and Krista truly were excited to sell our house and that passion was obvious to us all the way through the process. We just can’t say enough about these true professionals.
Tom & Suzy Slining

Handled quickly, professionally & worry-free

Everything was handled quickly, professionally and worry-free. We were able to take a long scheduled vacation that we returned to just days before closing, knowing that all the details would be attended to. We didn’t realize that this level of service actually existed!
The Shaugnessy Family

Marketing knowledge & tools really work

Dawn’s ability to stage a house and her understanding of how to competitively price a house allowed us to sell in a down market. Her attention to little details and creative suggestions gave the house the “IT” factor that made it stand out against its competition. Her marketing knowledge and tools really work. We would highly recommend their services.
Ryan & Skye Eckert

We wouldn’t refer anyone else

Working with Dawn and her team made selling our house a breeze. Since we were living out of the area at the time she made it very easy to stay in contact through email and phone. She always made a point to get back to us as soon as possible. She has great marketing techniques and kept us updated on all aspects of the house, from emails saying we had a showing to weekly updates of internet activity. We like Dawn as a person and her hip up to date attitude of how consumers are shopping for homes these days and the assistance of having our home staged. We wouldn’t refer anyone else but the Templeton Real Estate Group to sell your home.
Luke & Charlie Coldiron

On top of their game

TREG is on top of their game. When it comes to real estate, repeat business is earned. Our latest purchase was our fourth transaction with TREG. We will continue doing business with TREG.
Ross Corthell

Experts in Harris Ranch

From the time we decided to sell our home to closing, Mark and Dawn and their team were behind us. (Sometimes in front of us, dragging and encouraging). We sold our home in three days, due in large part to the staging advice and assistance and the advertising expertise of the team. They are experts in Harris Ranch … and we think that helped speed the sale, at the right price.
Mark Timmerman & Kathy McIntosh

Excellent service

We are so pleased by the excellent service we received from Templeton Real Estate Group. From the professional staging advice, high quality fliers and great personal service, was this by far the best and fastest house selling experience we have ever had! Mark and his team are highly recommended!
Max & Elize Marx

Professional, attentive, and caring

Mark Templeton and his group are very professional, attentive, and caring people. Mark always returned phone calls and emails promptly and kept us in the loop with everything that was happening with the sale of our rental property. We were very impressed with how they were going to promote our property and get it sold. I would highly recommend Templeton Real Estate Group!
