Dear Merri,

In November of 2009, my wife and I wanted to sell our house in town and achieve our dream of 30 years: to live on acreage in a peaceful rural setting. I doubted very much that this was possible considering the current economy. Merri Joy Moylan approached us and affirmed that it was indeed possible to sell
our house...it would just take a little work to make it
She brought to bear not only her own knowledge and hard work, but the expert advice of several experienced realtors. The net result of this advice and encouragement was that our family was motivated and enabled us to concentrate on those areas of home
improvement that were needed for loan approval and buyer appeal.
After putting the house on the market in late February, 2010, we received an offer in April, and closed in late May. Around last Christmas, our family members had all made their predictions of when the house would sell. Predictions ranged from June of 2010 to August of 2011. But the house closed earlier than any of our predictions!

I can truthfully say that Merri was exceedingly hard-working, and very courteous in dealing with us at all times. The guidance she gave us in exactly what had to be done with our house proved to be essential. And, she bent over backwards to help us find our ideal country property...which we have now. Even Merri's husband chipped in and helped us in many ways. I can confidently recommend Merri's services for anyone needing help in navigating the maze of real estate buying and selling.

Dear Merri Joy,

  1. just want to thank you for all the help and perseverance you provided us with when purchasing our home in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho this past June 2010. You were with us every step of the way making sure things went smoothly even when we couldn't be, (ie: at all three inspections and the closing ). You even helped to arrange contractors to finish the basement while we were still in Florida. We could not have done it without you. Additionally we want to thank-you for all the personal touches and concern you expressed to make our move from Florida to Idaho a success. I still can't believe with 7 children of your own, how you managed to remember my daughter's 3rd birthday and make it special knowing we had just arrived days before and would not have been able to pull together a birthday party for her. You are a credit to your field. It is rare to find someone like you who, even after the contract is signed, is still there lending a hand, and not just on one occasion but several. Just know we are incredibly grateful to you and hope to someday return the favor.

Please feel free to use this letter as a testimonial if you would like.

The service you provided us through the whole home buying process was nothing short of excellent. After patiently showing us many properties, we came across one that was clearly a good fit for us – good location, large property, well built house. But the fun had just begun – this was a short sale! You navigated us through the process, which was peppered with all sorts of nuances, and heroically negotiated on our behalf. In the end, of course, we closed on this wonderful property, and are now settling in nicely. A good realtor can make all the difference in the world – something you, Merri Joy, through your professionalism, knowledge, dedication and integrity clearly demonstrated to us.


Walking the Centennial Trail lends a pleasant road. A stone throw away sits the North Idaho Real Estate. As you step in there, you are greeted with big smiles. Being in there is comparable to under a shade tree...Better...There's coffee. She was presented to us.. and we talked .....visited.

Mostly she listened. Miss Merri Joy Moylan, she likes to walk and she did...She walked the extra mile...she gave us satisfactory service..........

Thank you Merri Joy for going above and beyond for us in getting that house in Cocolalla. 3 years of searching with multiple other realtors had gotten us nowhere, and you were able to do what seemed impossible. you are the best realtor ever! We really appreciate the four months you spent on making this dream come true for us.

Thanks again,

We began working with Merri Joy Moylan late February 2013. We had lived in the same house since we moved to Spokane 12 years before that. We were very lucky in this case – we didn’t know anyone in real estate. As we previewed properties on several free real estate apps we happened to call the listing agent on one - it was Merri Joy.

My wife and I now consider Merri Joy a dear friend! We looked at homes on land from Stateline, ID all the way to Athol. We looked at properties on the weekends and some weeknights – Merri Joy was there ahead of us at every one. She demonstrated an exceptional knowledge of the local schools, area attractions and was just brilliant at helping us navigate key elements of offers and counter offers. Sometimes we brought our children along and Merri Joy was just great with them as well.

It was clear that she really cared about us finding the right home for US, not just a home that we could settle for. She was very good at pointing out things we’d overlooked that would make a home wrong for us and our family. We learned from these experiences that as we talked and dreamed about what we ultimately wanted, she had really listened.

When we found “the one” and had our offer accepted by the sellers she worked even harder! She was there with us and the seller when we located the corner pins so we would know what we were buying. She was there when the septic system was pumped and inspected. She was there when the well was tested. She was there when we brought in an architect to help with our remodeling dreams.

Unexpectedly we learned that key elements on the home, built in 1990, had never had a final inspection and there was no Certificate of Occupancy from Kootenai County. She spent a week and a half meeting me at city and county offices in Coeur D’Alene, working on these elements to get inspections done so that we would have no trouble with our future remodeling plans. We have never had someone work so hard for us after the sale. In our new home hangs a framed copy of the Certificate of Occupancy which I asked Merri Joy to sign – I really don’t believe that anyone else could have made this happen.

Though she wasn’t the listing agent on the house we sold in Spokane County Washington, she was instrumental in helping us stage it for photos and make it ready to sell. Every part of the transaction that she touched turned out in our favor. I once told Merri Joy that for me she is the definition of “tenacity in action.” I don’t know if I will ever be in the market for real estate again – we love our new place! If I ever am there is only one real estate professional that I will call. Buying real estate is one of life’s most challenging decisions. If it is in Northern Idaho you need Merri Joy Moylan to help you make it.

  1. Merri Joy as my realtor gave me confidence to shop for a home with a realtor, something I was reluctant to do. She showed me the houses I wanted to see and offered additional houses to the list to round out the selection. Mostly, she was very careful to listen to me with a view to really understand just what THIS buyer wanted and then pulled out all the stops to make that happen. Nothing was too much trouble for Merri. We climbed on top of dirt mounds and rocks to get a better perspective over fences, we went to open houses, semi-completed houses and discussed all the options. She was creative and looked hard to foresee what possibilities might exist wherever we went. Together we made multiple visits to homes where I ultimately placed bids until just the right house was obtained. She never lost hope that we would find the right home and kept sending me every listing to view which fell within the criteria I wanted. She went the extra mile to determine property pins and review the in-depth CC&R's (a challenge). Above all, she was so pleasant to work with, and she made herself available to help in every conceivable way. When obstacles came along, Merri Joy knew when to take a step back for perspective and when it was time to proceed. And now, I'm happily sitting and enjoying my new home!!! Thank you Merri Joy for being so sweet and professional!!



Hi Merri, I have to tell you the pleasure is all ours. This is the 4th house we bought and We can honestly say that you went above and beyond your duties as a real estate agent to make sure all went smoothly. I would by far rate your service as a top 10 agent and will recommend you to anyone who is on the market for a home. Thank you a million for all your hard work.!

My family and I just recently relocated to the Post Falls, ID area after living abroad, looking to buy a home.

After inquiring, it was highly recommended that we use Mrs. Merri Joy Moylan's services at Kelly Right Realty, that she came highly recommended, and we are more than glad we did! Mrs. Moylan didn't rest until we found our dream home. She made our experience not only easy in finding a home, but also exciting! The family loves our new home and we are greatly appreciative and blessed for having Mrs. Moylan as our guide.

The Chandler family would like to personally thank Mrs. Moylan from the bottom of our hearts for her hard work and dedication in helping us realize our dream.

Thank you Mrs. Moylan!

We are from out of state so finding a home which would be just right for us we thought would be daunting to say the least. To our surprise this was not the case. After three unsuccessful attempts to purchase a home (through no fault of ours or the agent) we finally found the 'one'. Merri Joy, through her patience and skill masterfully guided the transaction painlessly. She went above and beyond when she met with the septic inspection company for the full 2.5 hours to witness the actual testing as we lived out of state. She would always communicate with us immediately. Her knowledge of the area steered us tactfully to the right neighborhoods. You won't find a more honest and trustworthy agent.
