TWIN FALLS, Idaho, Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Canyonside Irwin Realty is now serving the Magic Valley real estate market as the newest member of the Coldwell Banker® global franchise network, and the firm will now do business as Coldwell Banker Canyonside Realty.
The company was acquired in 1988 by Bob and Betty Veeh from Dick Irwin, who have since sold the company to the top performing team of agents Gary and Beverly Shook. Coldwell Banker Canyonside Realty has three offices with 49 independent sales associates.
"We were impressed with Gary and Beverly's passion for expanding their business in concert with the Coldwell Banker brand," said Budge Huskey, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. "We are proud to have Coldwell Banker Canyonside Realty join the Coldwell Banker network and look forward to increasing our brand presence in south central Idaho."

Magic Valley is home to world-class outdoor recreation activities, including the I.B. Perrine Bridge, which is one of only two bridges in the U.S. that permits base jumping. "With short distances to National Parks and larger cities, Twin Falls is a great place to call home," Shook added. "The region has also benefited from the opening of St. Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center. We are seeing more retirees moving into the area because of the convenience the medical facility and our relatively low cost of living.
"We are still experiencing a shortage of inventory at the lower end of the market because homes that are priced right and in good condition are selling fast," Shook said. "However, inventory at the middle to high end of the market is now at a healthy level. The city has experienced its own expansion and growth with existing companies like Glanbia and Con Agra; along with new companies like Chobani and Clif Bar opening factories and plants in the area, in the last few years. We are optimistic about the growth pace of our local economy."
