Hidden Springs, Idaho is not only Kate Nelson’s market of expertise, it’s also where she lives!
Nestled between Eagle and Boise, Idaho, Hidden Springs is a master-planned community in the Dry Creek Valley just north of downtown Boise. With a picturesque setting and neighborhood streets reminiscent of Mayberry, it is one of the most sought-after communities in the Boise area. The listings go quickly and are proving to be amazing investments. To learn more about the community, call Hidden Springs neighbor & REALTOR® Kate Nelson at
