Will Swygart / Realtor®

My name is Will Swygart but my friends and family call me Tater. I was born on a small farm in Pendleton, OR in 1978.  I have been blessed with two amazing parents along with a great sister and brother.  Pendleton was where I may have been born but I came home when my family moved to Nampa, ID in  1983.  I went to kindergarten through high school graduation in the Vallivue School District.  I am very proud and thankful for this.  GO FALCONS!! I was raised with 10 plus grandmas at all times.  The two God gave me and 8 more that my mother and aunt took care of in our home that they ran for the elderly.

Through the years I have learned a lot about service, commitment, sacrifice, hard work and patience through various jobs.  At 19, I worked for a local Treasure Valley farmer at least 8 plus hours a day, 7 days a week.

At 22 Chuck-A-Rama gave me an amazing opportunity to be a restaurant service manager in St. George, UT after I started out here in Boise, ID.  I was also lucky enough to help them open a brand new store in Idaho Falls, ID & help them get it going for the first 2 years.  My 6 years at Chuck-A-Rama changed my life.  I realized what a work family truly was.  The knowledge and skills I learned there will be with me forever.

After Chuck-A-Rama I became a real estate agent for REMAX.  I have loved every job I have ever had but helping people with their dream homes is where I found my calling in life.  Being a real estate agent is not a job.  It's an honor and a privilege.  I was able to learn the ins and outs of real estate over 6 years.  Chuck-A-Rama taught me about life and people. The experience is one that changed my life for the better. Knowing that real estate is my passion I came back to the industry in April of '16 after a short 6 year break. The day before my birthday my real estate license was renewed.  What a gift that was!!  I am so very grateful to be back doing what I love.

Hi my name is Laurissia Bivens, I was born in Nampa, Idaho in 1991. I grew up in Canyon County. I have two great parents and two older brothers. I went thru the Vallivue School District from start to finish. I quickly decided that I wanted to finish high school in 3 years instead of the normal 4. I graduated a year early as a Junior and went out and lived!

I did some exploring after high school and found myself living in Nevada, and Utah. While living in Utah I graduated from Provo College with my Associates in Criminal Justice. I learned a lot about life while I was there and realized that the right place for me was Idaho. I moved back to the Treasure Valley in 2017.  I am glad to be back in Idaho with my friends and family. I now have an amazing husband and 2 beautiful babies that I would do anything in the world for! 

I have recently joined the Real Estate community and absolutely love it. I love seeing the smile on people's faces when they get the keys to their new home. I like to treat people as friends not a transaction. If you need anything at all from us, we are here to help. Come see us over here at The Swygart Realty Group.

Laurissia Bivens Admin Assistant / TC


My name is Garrett Good and licensed real estate agent in the state of Idaho. I was born in central California in the early 80's and my family managed citrus in the Central Valley. I went to high school in the small town of Smithfield, Utah. After graduating in 2003, I enlisted in the United States Army where I served as an Infantryman for four years. While in the military I gained the skills necessary to see things through. This trait has benefited me greatly as a real estate professional. After completing a year long deployment in Sadr City, Iraq I was discharged from the military to pursue my bachelors degree at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho. In college, I majored in Elementary Education but later decided to pursue a career in real estate as I have always enjoyed being outside on the go.  

I am married to my beautiful wife Treci and together we have two teenage daughters and a feisty six going on sixteen year old. My family is my whole world and together we like spending time camping, fishing, hiking, and riding our ATV's. In my spare time I enjoy playing softball with good friends. This business has taught me a lot about life. I have seen the good, the bad, and on occasion the outright difficult aspects of life. Therefore, I have gained new insights into life as well as adapted to our ever changing industry. Together with my good friend Will Swygart, Michaela Ailshie, and Laurissia Bivens we are The Swygart Realty Group. A full service real estate team comprised of experts in all aspects of the real estate industry. We look forward to earning your business for life.
