Over the past 10 years, I have been able to specialize in assisting Residential Buyers and Sellers in Foreclosures, Land, Agriculture, and Commercial Real Estate transactions. Living in rural Montana I have learned quickly and competently about all aspects of Real Estate. Buying and selling real estate can be a daunting task. I have developed the relationships with local government agencies and experts to get all your questions answered quickly, making this an easy and seamless process for you. Knowing that real estate can be time sensitive, I pride myself in quick response times. In the technology world we live in, marketing your property online is important and I have developed the marketing strategies to make your home stand out. I am a Broker and have been working in the industry for over 10 years. I hold the Realtor designation, Graduate Realtor Institute designation, a Certified Residential Specialist member, and a major investor in Montana RPAC which supports property rights and home ownership. I believe it’s important to become vested in the community I live in - it’s makes for a better community! I have served on several boards, including Polson Chamber, Mission Valley Mariners and Polson Youth Soccer. I have coached soccer from the time my kids were able to play. Although my kids are grown, I still coach and enjoy mentoring the kids. I also volunteer, donate and fundraise for our community as much as time allows. I have been nominated for Volunteer of the Year – Polson Chamber of Commerce and the brokerage has been nominated as Business of the Year – Polson Chamber of Commerce. It’s important to me to stay involved with business associations and local government as well. I serve on the Northwest Montana Education Committee, Northwest Charitable Foundation and the Northwest Grievance committee. I try to attend as many city council meetings as possible to stay informed of what is happening in the community.
