Boise Real Estate Brokerage Merger Commits to Raise $1M For Charity

Amherst Madison Continues Path For Growth And Market Leading Agent Resources


In a private company meeting Nick Schlekeway, CEO and Founder of Amherst Madison real estate brokerage, announced to his agents and employees big news of an immediate brokerage merger. He shared that Front Street Brokers, another Boise based real estate brokerage, would be joining Amherst Madison and bringing with it some of the Treasure Valley’s top producing agents along with their leadership resources.  It was determined that by joining forces their collective mission would reach goals much sooner through a united effort.

Schlekeway went on to share an exciting new goal that would benefit those in need:

“Our ongoing mission has always been to redefine what it means to create value. Together, our goal for the next two years is to raise one million dollars for local Boise area charities.”

In 2018 Amherst Madison’s non profit entity A Giving Circle raised $112,500 for local Treasure Valley charity organizations. Meanwhile, Front Street Broker’s non profit Impact Club Boise was able to raise over $100,000. Front Street Principal Broker Mike Turner wrote in his recent announcement:

“Now, the great work we’ve accomplished at Front Street Brokers can be amplified by joining our leadership with Amherst Madison. Through our combined philanthropic efforts, we can give back to our community on a level that fosters real change.”

Front Street Agent Phil Mount, currently serving as the President of the Boise Regional REALTORS said about the merger:

“I could not be more excited for Front Street Brokers to join with the incredible team at Amherst Madison! We share the same commitment to valuing the customer experience with exceptional service and professionalism. Mike Turner and Nick Schlekeway are both inspiring leaders, and together they will be the ones to watch leading our industry in this Valley. I can’t wait to be part of this next generation brokerage!”

Agents from both brokerages will be meeting together for their first joint quarterly meeting on Tuesday, April 23rd at the Simplot JUMP facilities in downtown Boise. Amherst Madison will maintain occupancy of the prominent Front Street office location along with plans to move its primary office to an all new location currently under construction at 592 Benjamin Street in West Boise later this year.
