"lda did a wonderful job handling the sale of our Chapel Valley home. It was on the market for a total of 5, that's five, hours before we had an offer at our full asking price. We ended up accepting that offer. From then on she kept up informed of all that was involved in the process. I am extremely satisfied with her service and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to be buy or sell a home. "

"I highly recommend Gold Key Realty - Ida Walter went above and beyond helping us get into the place she was selling for the sellers. With tow kids and two dogs and us selling she made it possible to get in earlier! Thanks Ida for everything!!"

"Ida and her son Casey are amazing! Gold Key helped me and my wife get a house when we PCS’d to Ellsworth and also when we sold. Each time they made the process smooth and easy for us and always kept us in the loop of what was happening and always kept our goals in mind of what we wanted in a house and when it also came time to sell. This is a Family owned business and I would much rather work with them then a huge company name. You get the quality of experience and personalized attention without the pushy feeling of a “Salesman”. Would highly recommend them if looking to sell or buy in the Black Hills area!"

"Ida and the team at Gold Key Realty were wonderful to work with. My parents had consulted with Ida last year when they were thinking about downsizing. Then this year my stepdad passed away and mom had to move into assisted living. I needed to sell their house quickly using power of attorney. Since I am out of state, Ida took care of every detail and issue along the way, and made the whole process smooth and painless. I am grateful to Ida for her sensitive and caring service to my mom and her situation."

"I knew right away after talking to Ida that she was perfect to help us sell our home. She works for her customers, has a heart of gold, and walked us through every step. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor."

We were able to effortlessly purchase our home while still loving in Japan. Ida did a fantastic job coordinating everything and having everything ready for us upon closing. She even took time out of her life to constantly check in on our house after closing before we were able occupy the house. She treated us like family.

Ida is the absolute best! We had to do a quick move and needed to sell our house as fast as possible. It was the first time we had sold a house before and Ida explained everything perfectly! She was always available to answer any questions and is just a great person to work with! She calmed my nerves when things didn't always go exactly to plan. If we ever needed a realtor in the Black Hills area again we would definitely go with Gold Key Realty!

Ida helped with the sale of our house. She was very y responsive, thorough and easy to work with. We recommend Gold Key Realty for selling and buying.

Ida is absolutely fantastic! We’re a military family and needed to report to our next duty station fairly quick. Ida made selling our first home such a great experience. She’s so knowledgeable and was very straight forward with everything to expect and anything that we may expect. She sold our home after being on market for two days. Our moving process was not near as stressful due to Ida’s professionalism and attention to detail, and I can’t rave enough about her communication. If I could use Ida to sell and buy all our homes in the future I would…she’s amazing! Thank you so much, this family is very thankful.

We are strongly considering a move to the beautiful Black Hills for health reasons. When we asked for suggestions from a Rapid City site on Facebook many folks mentioned Ida Walter from Gold Key Realty. So we messaged her for an appointment. We were so delighted to visit with her. She was warm, welcoming, and honest. She knew we were just wanting to know more about the area and not buy at the moment. She spent 2 hours with us and answered all our questions. She even provided a tasty treat for our visit. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. She is very knowledgeable of the Rapid City area and gave us the feeling she'd really take care of us in this difficult market. I strongly recommend Ida and Gold Key Realty.
