Testimonials & Who is Abraham
I obtained my real estate license for the state of Idaho in the spring of 2005. Before obtaining my license, I worked in the production management field for a local high tech company from 1997 to 2005.
As a beginner agent in 2005, I earned the recognition for "Rookie of the year" at Heritage Real Estate. In 2006 & 2007 I earned the recognition for "Top Producer Nampa Association of Realtors" as well as “Top Producer” for the same brokerage.
As far as education, I went through the GRI program and obtained such designation (Graduate Realtor Institute) in 2007. The GRI program is an intensive education plan that covers months of training and testing in adapting to market changed and being able to offer the best service possible. During this designation, we are brought up to date on the most challenging issues in real estate covering also investment property analysis. By the end of 2008 I also obtained my broker’s license so I hold an associate broker license with Silverhawk Realty.
In the winter of 2009, I acquired my second designation from the National Association of Realtors called “Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource” (SFR) which is the only designation recognized by NAR about being a practitioner that has experience and understanding about short sales (helping distress sellers) as well as representing buyers that are purchasing property that are involved in a short sale or bank owned property. I am also a bi-lingual agent (spanish-english). The services I offer are based on strong communication, effective dealing and trust.
My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you. See what my clients have said about their real estate experience here in Idaho...
4-30-2007 - Abraham, te queremos agradecer por tu gran ayuda tan eficiente, por tu sinceridad y honestidad, por tu paciencia, por la gran ayuda tan rápida que nos diste.

8-28-2009 - Having been a Realtor in the area I fully intended to work my own deal. I met Abraham when my wife and I wanted to look at a listing of his. After meeting Abraham I was so impressed with his knowledge of the local market that I decided to use him as my Realtor. We looked at so many houses. Buyers like my wife and I use to drive me crazy but Abraham never skipped a beat. When we finally found the house we wanted we had to wait three months to close. Abraham kept in close contact with the seller’s Realtor and kept us up to date on everything that was happening. As long as Abraham is in the business he will be my real estate professional.

I would recommend Abraham to anyone in the market for a home, or to sale a home. He went the extra mile and beyond while working with us. Abraham was always so honest and trustworthy. We really appreciated his opinions as well, when it came to decision making. He works hard for his client, and you never feel unattended. He even checked in with us after we were in our home for a few months. We will definitely look forward to working with him again with any future real estate needs that we may have. It would be hard to find someone as dedicated as he is to his clients!

As an escrow officer myself, Abraham Lopez was a true friend and amazing client of mine. I had worked with Abraham for years before I retired and I have to say, he is one of the most thorough, commited, professional real estate agents I have ever met. His follow through is second to none. He is commited to doing what is best for the client and listens to each and every request. It was always my pleasure signing Abraham's clients and seeing the joy on their faces. He has been a blessing to our family, as well, with selling our home in Eagle, ID prior to our move. I would recommend Abraham Lopez to each and everyone looking to buy or sell a home now or in the future.

9/29/2010 – Buyer Testimonial – Relocation
My wife Ann first came in contact with Abraham when looking online at a house that Abraham had listed. She was so impressed on how nice Abraham was and how much he bent backwards to get her the information she wanted that she called him on other properties we were interested in. Once she found found other properties to look at also he was more than happy to get any information we needed. Ann told me about her experience with Abraham and when I started getting involved in the process of looking for our home I also found Abraham to be very helpful and it was more like talking to a friend than a realtor. He was so helpful, courteous, and easy to talk to and wasn't pushy at all.
He also got back to us in a very reasonable time if we made calls to him even if it was on a week end. Keep in mind we lived in Oregon not Idaho and when we narrowed it down to a few houses we were interested in and in one in particular, he offered to do a walk through the house we really wanted and do a flip video.
He sent the flip video via e-mail and we got a real good idea that was the house we wanted and put an offer on it contingent upon seeing it. Well to make a long story not quite as long as it could be, he walked us through the whole process of purchasing the home from start to finish and even was there at escrow making sure all the paper work was correct. Thanks Abraham for a great job, I would use you again if I ever need to sell or buy a home and would recommend you to anyone. I also want you to know I do consider you as a friend. Just to let anyone know who might read this, Abraham was always calling us up on his own to see how we were doing and if there was anything he could do to help.
Thanks again Abraham,
Your friend and client, Dave and Ann Whitaker – Meridian Idaho.

Abraham was everything that anyone could ask for and more. I went through 5 other real estate representatives before coming upon Abraham and he (Abraham) was by far the most helpful in helping my family and I reach our goals in buying a home. Our family loved his professionalism, his attitude, and the work ethic that he had with him throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Abraham to anyone that is looking for an agent that will go above and beyond expectations. I (John) could be reached at Regal Nails Salon in person if you would like to further discuss Abraham.

Desde el momento en que se empezo a pensar en comprar una casa eran nervios del ver si podiamos en el futuro poder tenerla,
pero con el paso del proceso y toda la informacion que recibimos fue disminuyendo los nervios. Abraham desde el principio que
nos empezó a explicar el proceso fue muy claro y asi sucedio al final del cierre que alivio!...Todos en mi familia estamos muy contentos con la casa, por ejemplo mi hijo Emmanuel porque tiene mucho espacio para jugar y correr...y mi esposo y yo porque hay mucho espacio para arreglar todas las cosas. Nuestra experiencia comprando una casa fue muy emocionante y nuestro agente Abraham una persona muy NICE en todo sentido y lo que mas me gusto fue que nos dio la cantidad exacta para nuestro Down Payment, fue una experiencia agradable tenerlo como nuestro agente.

When My wife and I first came in contact with Mr. Lopez was when we went online to look for a home in Caldwell. We found him to be the ultimate professional. He provided us with listings that met our needs and he led us through the maze of legalities that ultimately resulted in us purchasing the home of our dreams. We couldn't have accomplished our goals and in as short a time without the able assistance of Abraham Lopez. We highly recommend Abraham as your Realtor of choice.
Sincerely, Darrel and Jody Hunt
9-5-2011 - Seller Testimonial - Short Sale
My husband came in contact with Abraham via Craigslist in a desperate attempt to obtain another opinion on the short sale of our house. After questionable advice we had received from other Realtors in the area, we needed someone that specialized in short sales. After discussing our situation with Abe, we felt his confidence and unwavering determination coupled with his knowledge that he would be able to help. It was a long haul, the process took over 1 year and we have heard from many it was one of the most challenging sales to date. Anything and everything that could go wrong did…but during this time Abe’s communication with us was second to none. He called and came by well after hours and on weekends to make sure everything was on track and to give us continued updates on where we were in the process. He helped us thru all of the paperwork with the bank and Title Company and kept in constant contact with the buyers’ agent.
Abe never gave up, no matter how hard the many challenges were. Thanks to Abe we were able to sell our house instead of being forced into foreclosure. It was a wonderful feeling after a very long journey when he finally called to say we were going to closing. Thank you Abe for all work, professionalism, commitment and personal time you put in to help us; I would definitely recommend you to anyone needing a Realtor to help them buy or sell a home.

Thank you for being the catalyst in helping us purchase our first home. Our experience with you was optimal, you were professional, knowledgable and extremely helpful. You were always just a phone call away. We could always rely on you to listen to our desires in a home. If we wanted to tour a home you were always available asap! We bought our home in Kuna and you had no problem driving us there several times. You knew the ins and outs of everything. We put our trust in you and would do it again in a heartbeat. I have and will continue to recommend you to everyone. Thank you for helping us own our dream home, that we will raise our children in.

6-6-2012 Short Sale Seller Testimonial
My wife and I have known Abraham for the last 5 years as both our rental manager and our realtor. We rented a home from him for about a year before he helped us find and purchase our first home. We lived there for 4 years before it was time to make a work related move out of the area. Unfortunately due to the economy our home was worth almost 50% of what it was worth when we bought it 4 years earlier. I called up Abraham to ask him what my options were. We talked about the possibility of renting or a strategic short sale. Abraham was very informative on our options and did not push us in any particular direction. We decided that a strategic short sale would be our best option. I was very surprised during the process that everything that Abraham had explained that would happen during this process happened exactly as he said it would. With Abraham’s guidance and help we were able to secure 12 offers on our home after only two days of our home being on the market. He helped guide us through our paperwork with our mortgage lender as well and kept us informed every step of the way. We signed the final closing papers on our home only days before our move, which worked out perfectly for us. Also, to our surprise we were eligible for a $1,000 incentive, so we were able to take money home in the end. I would recommend Abraham to anyone, especially if you are faced with a possible short sale of your own. His knowledge on the subject takes a lot of the stress off of you. Even though we live further away now, we will continue to consult with and keep in contact with Abraham for all of our real estate needs.

This was the fourth home my wife and I have purchased over the past 38 years of marriage and I have to admit it was easier than buying a car. Abraham Lopez at Silverhawk Reality and Jerry Robinson plus the rest of the crew at 1st. Choice Mortgage made this so easy and enjoyable. If I had the money I would buy another house just so I would have the opportunity to work with these individuals again.
