Pinnacle Realty of Idaho was established in 2010 by founding member, John Chandler.  Originally we were established to provide exclusive brokerage services to one of the largest production builders in the valley.  Now, Pinnacle Realty of Idaho provides real estate services to anyone wanting top notch service, real time market information, and a commitment to always put the clients’ interests first.


In an interview with founding member John Chandler, he remembers his start in the industry as: “In 2004, I remember a conversation I had with one of my best friends who had been in the real estate industry for about 8 years by that time about the prospects for a career in real estate.  He said he thought that for someone with a work ethic like mine I could make a good living in the business.”  John goes on to say, “Coming from a retail management background, I was used to working in an environment where you are always striving to improve sales and profits for the company, constantly solve problems, resolve conflicts, and look for ways to go above and beyond for customers and employees.  So I brought that experience to my approach to real estate and after 11 years in the industry and over 400 satisfied buyers and sellers, I can say my friend was right. It was a good move for me”

John has been practicing Real Estate full time since 2004. During that time he has been a top producer every year. Unsung Hero Award

John was the former Chairman of ACAR Communications Committee and in 2011, he was recognized by the Ada County Association of Realtors as the Association’s “Unsung Hero” for his original concept that directly lead to the Idaho Housing’s Federal Tax Credit Loan Program. The program allowed buyers to borrow against the federal government’s tax incentive program in order to use that money for down payment.  John says, “It didn’t make any sense to send a check to buyers after they purchased their home when they really needed that money upfront to even have the opportunity to buy in the first place.” John, along with Mark Lebowitz, the Executive Director of the Association at that time worked with Idaho Housing executives to create the program that was implemented and used by over one thousand first time home buyers throughout Idaho.  The award recognizes the work done by agents in the association that work behind the scenes to improve the industry and opportunities for buyers and sellers.  John believes that helping others achieve their goals is the core to his success and the success he has personally brought to the companies he has worked for and the clients he has represented.  His “if I’m awake, I’m working” approach to his profession has helped as well.
