Friends and clients of a Boise couple helped celebrate the grand opening of the couple's new shop and office June 11.
Nick Roundtree is an associate broker for Keller Williams Realty Boise, specializing in homes on the Boise Bench. (The Bench is literally his domain; he directs people to ILoveTheBench.com.)
Roundtree's partner, Will Heatter, is passionate about flowers and design - think floral art and bridal arrangements with emphasis on detail, as opposed to flower-shop bouquets.
Heatter started his florist business in the couple's garage last fall, as Roundtree's real estate business grew steadily.
They decided to combine forces and opened a storefront in a former doughnut shop at 2502 W. Overland Road. Roundtree's office takes up about one-fourth of the space, he says. Color-coordinated signs for each business hang outside.
They used a small private loan to get started "and a lot of sweat equity and some savings as well," Roundtree says. "We've invested our souls into it."
