Hi, Shorty here. What’s a grown man doing with a kid’s nickname? Well, being the tallest in school in the 6th grade, I was tagged with the name and it has stuck for all these years despite being 6’4”. After graduating from the University of Southern California with a major in Telecommunications and a minor in Business, I entered the high end lithography business for 39 years in Los Angeles. During those years my wife of 50+ years and I also bought, sold and developed properties. We have raised 3 children and 9 grandchildren. Family means everything to us. I’m a firm believer in giving back to the community and in volunteerism. During our years in McCall, ID I chaired the Parks and Rec Advisory Committee, organized the McCall Centennial celebration, served on the McCall Improvement Committee and spent 4+ years volunteer tutoring at Donnelly Elementary School. I current sit on the board of the Kit Worthington Foundation for the Arts. We raise scholarship funds to assist students in the many performing arts. It is this drive to help others that works so well in real estate. Helping people and families love where they live is so very rewarding. I would love to show you Boise, the city I love.
We absolutely loved working with Braden. He was knowledgeable about the real estate market in our area and worked tirelessly during our search to find us the right home for our family. He is very friendly, personable and absolutely hilarious, which made our frustrations much more manageable. He was timely and attentive to all of the paperwork, our questions and advocated for us during our negotiations. I would absolutely recommend him and if we ever need another realtor, Braden will be our first call.b5
Braden was fantastic to work with. He listened to what was important to us and showed us houses that fit our needs. He was responsive to phone calls and emails. He took the time to answer all of our questions during the process of buying our first house. If/when we have the need to work with a realtor in the future, we will reach out to Braden again.b4
It is obvious Braden loves his job as a realtor. Braden is knowledgeable in all aspects of home buying and selling. He is prompt in returning phone calls or text messages, and always ready to work. He brought with him a competent team of escrow and loan officers. Braden made home buying an enjoyable process and is will to work with you regardless of the size of the home.b3
Braden find my condo in the exact complex he told me I would live. It only took about a month to find the perfect pace. It was the easiest prices I've ever gone through.b2
Braden helped me sell a home and then later purchase another one. I always knew I could trust Braden to have my best interests in mind and offer guidance that would help me get what I need.b1
Great guidance through the house purchase experience. Worked great with everyone involved and was professional.To Shorty
We had the pleasure of working with Shorty as our realtor. Ever patient and professional, he also made the experience a fun one. We will absolutely return to Trail 27 for any future real estate needs, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for an instant.Testimonial to Shorty
Susan was great, she worked with us over a period of several months and looking at a large number of houses. She was always looking out for our best interests.
Jolie was very insightful and kept my needs in mind when sometimes I would detour from them. Jolie was very helpful, mindful of the strong market and my interests were a top priority.

Just purchased a bungalow in Northeast Boise. Kealy's knowledge of the area and market were unsurpassed. She has guided us through the process in a seamless manner. I tend to be a control type person but after seeing Kealy in action, I surrendered the negotiation to Kealy. We were beyond satisfied with the result. She has intimate knowledge of the area together with great professional contacts ranging from mortgage brokers and inspectors to contractors. She appears to be highly respected by her peers and her actions bespeak an ethical and committed approach to her clients and the community. Her staff have been responsive and kept us advised at every stage of the process. We count ourselves fortunate that friends recommended Kealy.05/19/2016 Greg
Kealy and her team are absolutely amazing. They are resourceful, creative, patient, organized, responsive, experienced, and knowledgeable. They were willing to help out however they could to make sure we found the right house for our family, being very mindful of our needs and our priorities in a property. We live on the east coast and are relocating to the area, so with the exception of a brief visit to look at some houses by my husband, all of our house hunting has been by FaceTime/Skype! They walked multiple properties with us on FaceTime, took measurements, captured detailed photos, and more just to make sure we got the house of our dreams. We are thankful for their hard work and commitment. It is really remarkable how hard they will work for you. We are thrilled that we followed a recommendation and worked with Kealy. It was the best decision we could have possibly made and we ended up with the perfect house!05/22/2016 Kaitlin
Kealy is one of the reasons we accepted a position at St. Luke's and are relocating to Boise. Her knowledge of the Boise area, neighborhoods, homes, and ability to read our personalities were instrumental in our buying our new home. I can't count the number of times we stated, "I trust her," to each other through the process; her honesty is utterly impressive and appreciated. Kealy and her team have been nothing but prompt, professional and perhaps most important of all patient with us. We can't wait to build our relationship with Kealy in the future. Thank you, Kealy and Trail 27!05/23/2016
I had a week to search for a house before returning home due to job commitments. Kealy made sure I saw everything that was available within our constraints. Unfortunately there was nothing currently on the market during that week which fit my families’ needs. She always gave her honest opinion about potential properties and not what she thought you would want to hear. As you would expect soon after returning home a house that appealed to my wife and I appeared on the market. Not being able to travel to Boise on short notice led us to using FaceTime to preview the house. While we have not closed we feel that FaceTime allowed us to determine that the house suited us. Kealy was quick to schedule the inspection. Again, we used FaceTime to walk through the house with the inspector visually inspecting areas of concern that needed to be addressed with the seller. We utilized DocuSign to process all the negotiation paperwork. It was self-explanatory and a very smooth process. After the inspection Kealy was quick to arrange for a roof and radon expert to provide further insight into areas of concern. Both professionals she recommended were knowledgeable and honest at reasonable prices. I will provide an update once closing has occurred, but Kealy and her staff have been very responsive and informative as we are currently an ocean away.06/08/2016 Lynn
Kealy is an exceptional realtor who will exceed all expectations. She sold our house in a couple weeks and was on top of every detail from the start. From landscaping to paint colors to negotiating the closing details, Kealy was more than willing to spend her time assisting my wife and I through this complex process. Her knowledge of the Boise area is unparalleled in my opinion. I give her my highest endorsement and recommend her to all of my friends and family.2015 dyer
Kealy is one of the best agents we have worked with. Period. Kealy helped us purchase our first home in a highly competitive market - she is very detailed with her work, extremely responsive, cares more about what you want rather than getting you to just buy, she is very patient - knows her real estate market inside and out. We have talked with several other real estate agents before purchasing our home with Kealy - and while they have been all good - Kealy is just more efficient and cares more about her clients. One awesome quality about her - is that she is relentless in getting information and very personable - she will call whoever she needs to get info, keep the seller's agent in line, and make sure everything is on track. She is just great. We love our new home thanks for all your help2015 O.F.
We found Kealy serendipitously. Just exactly the way we found our new home. Our first interaction was on a Sunday afternoon and she spent nearly two hours with us. When she left that day we knew she was a "good fit" for us, even my eleven year old remarked how he thought she was cool. Kealy is warm and realistic, non judgmental and just all around fun. Kealy keeps things confidential when necessary and wants nothing more than for you to find the perfect home for you and your family. We used Kealy for the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new home. As with any home buying deal we had some snags and bumps in the road. I feel Kealy went way above her job scope to ensure our expectations were met. Kealy recommended an excellent Mortgage professional to handle our financing. We feel so grateful and happy to be in our new old home in the East Foothills. Every day is a good day in our new space and place. A big Thank you to Kealy for helping us in our successful journey getting here. I would definitely hire Kealy B again and have already recommended her to several of my close friends.2015 tonja
We first met Kealy when looking at homes prior to our move to Boise. We returned to Dallas without making a decision. We later decided to rent. Kealy not only understood our decision but, since we were still in Dallas preparing for our move, went to check out both rentals we had found online. The next year, after we had moved here and rented for nearly a year, she represented us in our first home purchase. Nearly three years later, she represented us in purchasing another place and in selling our old one. The selling transaction was complicated by several issues, but Kealy held our hands through all of them.maria
Kealy was great to work with! Besides being a super fun person she helped guide us through the whole process, advised us on the right price to offer and we got the house that we wanted!2015 jeff
I absolutely love, Kealy!! She is incredible. Her knowledge of the industry, her desire to find the house that worked the best for my family, and her negotiation skills were/are well beyond any realtor I have ever seen. I grew up with a Dad in construction, I've seen A LOT of realtors, and Kealy puts them all to shame. She is a gem and a pro and my family and I absolutely love her!!2015 warren family
Kealy had a tough assignment -- find us the perfect house ASAP. Our 'perfect' included a wish list many realtors would balk at. Not Kealy. She rolled up her sleeves and got to work. She was patient, insightful and adept at guiding us. She knew when to give us space, when to push us to act and responded well to our needs. Her knowledge of local inventory and home values gave us confidence when we did act. Her local connections to other realtors and home service professionals saved us time and money. Her efforts paid off -- we now own the perfect home. It's easy to recommend Kealy.02/01/2016 annie
Kealy did a great job for me selling my house. She helped me identify what to update / fix as well as find contractors to do the work. She went above and beyond to make sure it showed well and that the deal closed smoothly.01/02/2016 r.t.
Reliable, trustworthy, honest, gives back to community. These are some of the words that come to mind immediately. Kealy has represented us in some property management transactions as well as in real estate transactions in which she had little to gain. Despite the fact that there was little money in it for her, she always acts as if our transaction is of high importance, worthy of her best efforts. Very impressive.john & jan
In 2014 I prepared to move from Montana to Boise, Idaho to be nearer my son and his family. He and his wife recommended Kealy Baughman, another hard working parent at their girls' school. I made one or two long trips to Boise hoping to find a home that would match my criteria. When I arrived the first time, my son introduced Kealy. I immediately felt confident that she and I would work well together. She was prepared with a list of possibilities, and we were off to explore them. Kealy seemed to have no other concerns. She was enthusiastic but not over-bearing, informed, and willing to share what features she felt were assets or drawbacks. She probably thought I would never make up my mind yet she patiently and cheerfully continued to help me search for the house which would inevitably become my home. When we found the right one she suggested making an offer significantly lower than the asking price as a beginning of negotiation. The seller, however, agreed without any further negotiating. I have no doubt that Kealy Baughman can work well with anyone who is seeking an honest, hard-working, intelligent, and positive realtor.1/21/2016 – blessyu87
Kealy was awesome when we were in a bind trying to move out of a bad rental and into a home in 4 weeks. She showed us about 30 homes in 2 weeks and when we found one we loved, we moved in 2 weeks later. She knows the people who know how to get it all done quickly and accurately! She took (way too much of) her own time to help us out, and I will always appreciate it!1-21-16 ashley
I never realized how much work goes into being a realtor! Kealy is great- she not only showed us the property but has been there every step of the way through inspections, bank loans, negotiations, making sure we get what we want and are able to find the means to the end to complete the purchase.01/21/2016 – vailchef
Kealy is very knowledgeable of the market, honest and straightforward, and a complete pleasure to work with! We enjoy working with her and definitely recommend her01/21/2016 – marliece
