Hi there from Western Montana

Real Estate Agent with Own Montana Real Estate

The first post must be the most difficult so here goes. I own a small real estate brokerage in Western Montana and work in the counties of Missoula, Mineral and Sanders. I first started in the real estate business in the 70's and have seen quite a change. Other interests have been in the hospitality industry. I have been the President of Glacier Country Regional Tourism Commission which assists in the marketing of all of Western Montana including Glacier National Park. Both industries are closely related as we both work with the friends and families in their most memorable times. I look forward to learning from the Active Rain family and contributing as I learn my way around. Oh and if you are interested in visiting our wonderful state I would be pleased to help direct you in making the trip memorable.
