"Live where you Play."


I could talk about my experience and accomplishment all day but really it’s what my clients and colleagues think that really matters;



Jiwan Ripley is the model of a Real Estate Agent’s Agent. Personable, honest and sincere. Jiwan was available with short notice even with the local real estate market exploding. He immediately wanted to understand our needs and desires and worked hard to mold them into a clear precise picture. I felt that he really cared about helping us achieve our goals. Jiwan Ripley came highly recommended by 6 personal friends. We could not be more satisfied. Amazing Guy!!!

"Jiwan is fantastic!

My first interaction with Jiwan was when he replied to my email with a consise answer to a specific question. No intrusive questions about needing an agent or, what was I looking for, or can I call you, nothing, just an answer to the question I asked. No sales pitch! I appreciated that, so when things got serious (several months later), my first call was Jiwan.

Jiwan is a matter of fact kind of person. He answered questions truthfully even if I didn't like the answer. ...that's a good thing!

I would absolutely work with Jiwan again, if the need arises."

Jiwan is very knowledgeable about the environment of selling in the Inland Northwest and would not hesitate to always recommend him. 


Barb Wippel



Jiwan Ripley was outstanding. His performance went above and beyond and that’s what I needed to close a deal. He was the only agent that ever sent me listings prior to my panhandle visit and the only one that got what I was looking for. He was friendly, accommodating, generous, professional and packed with local real estate area knowledge. My wife thinks he is the bomb diggity (the best). I doubt any other agent could have sold me a house. If I was the CEO at C21, I would pick Jiwan to train my other agents and at the very least make him an area manager.


Jiwan is a Top notch agent.

Oscar Wright


"Jiwan's local knowledge of the market was very helpful in the selection of our home. He was flexible with his schedule and always returned calls in a timely fashion. He was able to set up viewings and the inspections in short order and was able to deal with my changing schedule. I would recommend Jiwan's services to those looking to buy s home in the Idaho panhandle area. He was a real pleasure to work with."
David Grant - Bonners Ferry ID



"Jiwan took the time to listen and understand our specific situation and what our goals are. Jiwan's knowledge of the local area helped us understand what to look for, the pros and cons of each micro-area and how seasonality might affect our choices. I cannot imagine our search would have been as successful without Jiwan's help and guidance. We are extremely satisfied with Jiwan and recommend him to any of our friends who might need his services."
B&C Danz, Sagle ID



"Jiwan is the person you want if no hype and all help is the type of service you want!"

Morning Dove Trust



"Jiwan Ripley proved to be extremely knowledgeable in the Sandpoint general area. Asked the right questions and found us a house that we wanted. He also did things that you would not normally expect a real estate agent to do such as picking up the mail and packages and putting them inside the house while we moved to the area."

Kurt & Terri Schmidt Sandpoint Idaho (Buyer)



"We started looking in 2015 and Jiwan was incredibly quick to respond, yet he wasn't pushy. This, along with his genuine personality and confidence, were what sold us on him. We're so glad to have him on our side!


We went through considering a lot of properties. Jiwan's experience and knowledge of what we were looking for helped to knock out a lot of possible wasted time. He got to know us, then was able to direction us well.


I wish there was a "better than excellent" category that we could pick for him. We not only loved our experience with him, we also referred my parents to him, as well!


Our family asked if we had made any friends in Sandpoint, and we were able to say that our Real Estate agent was our first friend here. :)"

Kirk & Karen Reynolds



This man is a giant asset to your company. His loss, even at retirement ,will be a great loss to you. He represents Century 21 in the most professional way such a standard can be held. Then with that professionalism takes it to a personal level like hes known you all his life. He is no longer a real estate agent to me. He is a dear personal friend. I look forward to doing business again with Jiwan."

Gregory & Alicja O'Dell

Charles Watson



"There are a number of good words that describe Jiwan! Dedicated, focused, professional, connected, and integrity! I could go on, but I think you get the picture. I met Jiwan several years ago and have found in him a true professional in the real estate business. His ability to see and hear the needs of both his buyers and sellers is a real gift! His professionalism and integrity are unmatched. You would not only be wise, but blessed to partner with him for your real estate needs." 

Marcia Phillips - Business Development Representative at First American Title Holding Company



Jiwan Ripley was the best agent I have ever worked with. I was selling my parents property after they recently passed away and Jiwan was very understanding and knowledgeable. Jiwan went above and beyond to help me get the property sold, assisting and working together to complete the Estate sale process. I would recommend Jiwan Ripley to anyone buying or selling their home! Awesome experience. When I retire and move to the beautiful Sandpoint area, I will contact Century 21 Riverstone for my real estate needs. 

Leslie Harvey, California



Thank you for all your help throughout the house buying process.  You are the best!  We absolutely Love our new home.  Thank you for your patience, expertise, kindness, honesty and hard work to make it happen.
Tanya Allmaras & Sumer Davis



“Jiwan contacted us directly and asked to come take a look at our home and property to see if it was a possibility for him to sale our place. He felt he could help us and so we decided almost right away that we would secure Jiwan as our agent. He was very helpful in giving us instruction as to what we needed to do to make the house presentable for showing. We sold our residence in a timely manner and received a very fair price. Jiwan also was instrumental in helping us purchase our new home in Coeur d' Alene, ID. It was very helpful to have Jiwan get us through the process of selling and then buying another home. We would give him "5 Stars" for his help and encouragement through this entire process! And, we would be more than happy to recommend Jiwan to family and friends who might be interested in selling or buying in the future
Stan and Nancy Tillberg



"Jiwan responded to all aspects of the transaction quickly and professionally. Excellent to work with.  Should the need arise, Jiwan will be our first choice as a realtor. He understood exactly what we were looking for and provided information on prospective properties. When we were ready to purchase he handled everything and kept up updated throughout the negotiations and closing. Any questions were answered in a very timely manner."    
Danny and Elizabeth Marsonette



Great man to work with. He has been patiently working with us to find just the right house. He is very knowledgeable of the area and of the building codes and regulations. 
Jeff & Judy Finder



Jiwan goes above and beyond to help out his customers!!! In this fast paced world where nobody has time to be personable, Jiwan takes the time to get to know his customers not just on a business level (wants) but on a personal level and this is something that is rare nowadays. He is genuine, efficient, honest, reliable, dedicated and an outstanding person and of course, realtor! If it was not for him, we would not have obtained our forever home!! Definitely recommend him to anyone!!! He will be our forever realtor!! 
Karla & Shawn Flynn



Jiwan did a great job for me. I live in Spokane and I had to meet at odd times or I had to use email a lot...Jiwan was great at meeting my needs. I ended up with a cool little cabin on the water. Thanks Jiwan! 
Henry Seipp



From the moment I met Jiwan I could feel a lot more than a business friendship beginning. I am relocating to Sandpoint from the San Francisco Bay area. Jiwan has kept me up to date with the most recent properties to come to the market. I’ve had a number of questions about lending and buying in the Northern Idaho market and Jiwan has had all the answers. If he didn’t he knew were to get them. He’s been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to doing my final purchase with him. 
Gregory O’Dell



I have worked on several transactions with Jiwan and he always goes the extra mile for his clients... He is very knowledgeable and extremely honest...  I think integrity is everything in our business and he definitely fits the bill !!

Jiwan is the most conscientious realtor I have had the pleasure of working with in purchasing property in Sandpoint. He always made himself available when we needed to search and was very patient with us in negotiating. I would recommend him to ANYONE seeking to sell or buy!!!!
