Justin Bateman

Justin could say he has been in the real estate business his entire life. He napped in open houses when his mom, Charlene Bragg, started her real estate career as a single mom in 1980 in Boise. While living in a model home in Arvada, CO he gave customers a tour after school while his parents were on the jobsite with other appointments. He grew up hammering nails on the family cabin on the weekends and answering the phone "like a professional" during after school hours. It was no real surprise he had the entreprenurial spirit he grew up around. He started his official real estate career in the Denver area two weeks before 9/11.

After working in Denver for a few years he moved to Cape Coral, Florida where he was licensed and also worked for a home building company. With the life-changing event called Marriage and a baby on the way he made the move back to Boise with his beautiful wife, Lisa in 2007. They have two children--Jaden (5) and Jordyn (almost 2). They love living in Boise to raise their children and appreciate the abundance of parks, the Greenbelt and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.

Justin has pursued extensive education around real estate investing and has always put the needs of the customer/client first. He is passionate about kids, sports and "growing people". He loves public speaking and the opportunity to impact the lives of others
