About My Home Finder Team
Terry Winkle is a native of the Magic Valley area and has spent most of his life here. He loves this area! He was born in Twin Falls and later grew up in a small, nearby farming community, Buhl, the Trout Capital of the World. Growing up in an agricultural culture he learned the value of family, community, and good old hard work. Terry and his brothers ran a lawn mowing business all through Jr. High and High School years, which taught him the fundamentals of trust and respect for people and their property. After high school, he attended the College of Southern Idaho and worked various jobs connected in the Magic Valley community. Later he ended up in a home furnishing/decor business where he was the store manager for several years. During this time, he accumulated several rental properties and a connection to real estate.
Since he enjoyed real estate and the education he received from property ownership and management, he decided to advance in this arena. In 2002 Terry decided to begin a new career path into Real Estate and became a licensed Realtor. Since this time, he has advanced his education to become a licensed Real Estate Associate Broker and Certified Residential Specialist. Terry has grown in his real estate experience while building some of the most amazing relationships with his clients. He has found a real enjoyment for the Magic Valley and the people who make up this area. Every day Terry gets the opportunity to meet new people and share this wonderful place he calls "home" with them. If you would like a relationship in your real estate transaction you can trust, with outstanding professional service, then reach out to Terry to experience his "Real Estate Beyond the Sale".
Terry, tell us about you: “I am married to my youthful and amazing wife, Judi (Aguirre) and have 2 beautiful, college bound daughters. I enjoy ball room dancing lessons with his wife in the fall, snow shoeing/cross country skiing in the winter, kayaking/biking/hiking/golfing in the summer and running races with his wife. Judi loves to run and has a bucket list to experience a "fun run" in each state. I felt that since we are going to these different states we might as well add a golf course and a visit to some unique park or state feature of each state to our list. Judi and I like to do outdoor activities and hope to travel more now our girls are out of the house. I love homemade chocolate chip cookies, old fashion doughnuts (any sugar really) and to make others laugh often with as many friends as possible. Life is good with those components.”
Bonnie Lutz is a licensed Realtor that joined the Team in 2016. Bonnie was raised in the Snake River Canyon (yes, in the canyon) and attended Filer schools and has her BA from Concordia University, Portland. She loves being back home again in the Magic Valley after several years in Portland, St. Louis, upstate New York and Northern California. Returning to her hometown has renewed her appreciation for the beauty and small town feel that Southern Idaho has to offer.
Bonnie, tell us about you. “I married my high school sweetheart, Clint, many, many years ago. I have four children and am now an empty nester (finally!), giving me time to pursue new hobbies and adventures. I love riding my new beach cruiser bicycle that I got for my birthday, ballroom dancing, and my new hobby of golfing with friends, I always get the high score and believe I am winning. On my down time I enjoy getting away to the Hailey area hiking and soaking in the picturesque mountains or sipping wine with friends on the patio. My favorite is spending time with my children!”

Chandy, Tell us about you: “My biggest pleasure in life is being a mother to my children, a Nana to my three adorable grandbabies and a servant to my small pack of dogs. My family size has more than tripled in the last few years giving me a few more to love! Besides a passion for real estate, I enjoy other hobbies as well; cake decorating for friends and family (pretending to be a pro), remodeling vintage travel trailers to camp in-style, sporadic road trips to adventure new places, flower gardening (just to out-do the neighbors), playing cards, camping in remote areas and spending time outdoors absorbing much of the beauty that nature has to offer.”
Why Choose My Home Finder Team
Buying a home usually requires dozens of forms, reports, disclosures, and other technical documents. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes. Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved, so you want to work with a professional who can speak the language.
There are many factors up for discussion in a deal. Terry will look at every angle from your perspective, including crafting a purchase agreement that allows enough time for you to complete inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase.
Terry can provide local information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. He also have objective information about each property. He can use that data to help you determine if the property has what you need. By understanding both your needs and search area.
Sometimes properties are available but not actively advertised. A REALTOR® can help you find opportunities not listed on home search sites and can help you avoid out-of-date listings that might be showing up as available online but are no longer on the market.
