Born and raised in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley in western Montana, I received my bachelor’s degree in history and my associate’s degree in political science from Montana State University-Billings. After graduation, I relocated to Bozeman where I found a love for mac n’ cheese, golden retrievers and the Bridger Bowl Ski Area.
I’m extremely proud to be a native Montanan, although I didn’t realize how important growing up in the Last Best Place was until I got older. I grew up knowing that a handshake is more important than a person’s word and that you put your head down and work until the job gets done. These values were instilled in me before I ever got my first job, and something I insist on in business today. Growing up with an appreciation for Montana and its amazing beauty, is why I chose an industry that compliments that admiration.
With a solid foundation in customer service, a concrete eye for detail and a dedication to lasting relationships, I hope to understand every client’s needs. At the end of the day, buying property is one of the biggest transactions of people’s lives and it is my responsibility to make that transaction as flawless as possible.
I am originally from Detroit, Michigan, and I have been a Montana resident now for 23 years. I reside in the beautiful Paradise Valley and have been a REALTOR® since 2003, specializing in rural properties. An avid outdoorsman my entire adult life, I own and operate Rockin’ HK Outfitters, which does horseback adventures in Yellowstone National Park and at Chico Hot Springs. I also run hunting camps in the upper Madison south of Ennis, MT. I am married and have three wonderful, active children (12,11, and 8 years old). We all love anything outdoors.
I am most active as a buyer's representative, as I meet many potential buyers through my outfitting business. I love hearing a buyer’s vision and then going out to find that dream property. I am knowledgeable about real estate in Park, Gallatin, and Madison counties, having lived in all three areas.
If ever at Chico Hot Springs Resort, stop in at the horse barn. I have an office there. And please visit my Rockin' HK Outfitters website at www.rockinhk.com.
I have called southwest Montana home since 1996, living in Bozeman, Missoula, and now in Livingston.
A decade ago, an opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of surface and mineral estate ownership landed at my door. In the years since, I have been an independent Landman for energy companies across the United States, negotiating oil and gas Leases, surface and mineral interest transfers, and acting as the liaison between energy companies and the surface- and/or mineral-rights owners. My expertise and attention to detail in title research and contract negotiation are key to my clients reaching their goals.
I parlayed this experience into real estate and joined Small Dog Realty in 2015??? Combining my vast knowledge of surface- and mineral-estate ownership with a professional, straightforward and honest approach to real estate, I am dedicated to helping clients find success in their real-estate endeavors. I understand the excitement and stress that comes with purchasing or selling real estate and focus on making the process as seamless as possible.
When not busy keeping up with my energetic young family, I head out with my fly-rod, Jack Russell terrier and English setter to cruise Montana’s back roads in search of hidden fishing holes and hunting grounds.
Call me (406-223-3661) and I’ll show you around this beautiful area. You, too, can call Montana home!
Growing up in northeast Ohio, we were never blessed with the wide-open spaces or natural wonders so bountiful in the West. So when I relocated to Portland, Oregon, after college, I was awestruck by the incredible natural beauty: The Willamette Valley, Columbia River Gorge, Cascades and Mount Hood. I thought I'd never see a place to compare with it. But as fate would have it, my work in the lighting industry brought me through western Montana several years later. This part of America, with its mountains, rivers, national parks and outdoor living is unparalleled in the lower 48. I was hooked.
My wife and I decided to relocate here as soon as she finished medical school and have worked hard to improve this community we love in any way we can. Shortly after arriving in Montana, I met the owners of the Montana Grizzly Encounter & Sanctuary. Their love and dedication to these majestic creatures made me want to help in any way I could, so I've volunteered my time and now 5 percent of my own net commissions from any property sale here at Small Dog Realty to their cause.
In addition to our love of the environment and animals, my wife and I have a passion for helping children. I am a mentor for "at-risk" youth at Youth Dynamics Inc. in Livingston and my wife is a pediatrician at Livingston Healthcare. We've also been blessed with an amazing adopted son who also excited to give back to our community, volunteering at the Grizzly Encounter & Sanctuary and local food banks.
When the opportunity came for me to begin my career in real estate, I felt it was really important to work for a place that matched my passion for this amazing community. My search ended when I found Pam McCutcheon at Small Dog Realty and her amazing efforts to give back to the places we call home. Let me help you find your home here, too. Let's make that dream of yours a reality here in the Last Best Place. Whether you are buying or selling, I will be by your side to ensure you are informed, represented and get the best possible outcome for your property transaction –because you are more than just a client, you’re my friend and neighbor.
Perhaps it was my love of horses and wide, open spaces that drew me to Montana. I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and graduated from Colorado State University in 1993. I then went on to earn a culinary arts degree at Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon. Although Ohio, Colorado and Oregon all have wonderful things to offer, it is Montana that grabbed my heart.
I arrived in Montana in 1995 to work on a dude ranch in Gallatin Canyon, south of Big Sky, and fell in love with the state. Montana is called the Treasure State for its abundant mineral reserves and natural resources. However, the true treasures of Montana are the people who call Montana home. If you are new to the area I think you will find this to be true. Hard-working, kind, and fierce protectors of sustainable land use, Montanans work together to provide for the future.
Livingston has been my home for 16 years. I am raising two sons who attend middle and high school here, and am an active board member and secretary of the Livingston Education Foundation. Previously I have worked for Catherine Lane Interiors, American Bank and Williams Plumbing & Heating, Inc., before shifting to real estate. Although a new Small Dog pack member, I look forward to working with you to find the perfect home or piece of land for you to start the next chapter of the most interesting page turner, your Montana story!
I am a fifth-generation Bozemanite and proud to be from such a beautiful part of the country! I started my career working with a Top 1% realtor in Portland, Oregon, working with buyers and sellers of a wide variety of properties across northwest Oregon. I closed more than 100 transactions from apartments in the city to single-family homes in the suburbs and rural properties.
After having a daughter, my husband and I moved back to Bozeman for the quality of life and to be closer to family. Having played soccer in college and at a semi-professional level, I love being active -- hiking, biking, yoga, golfing, running, and pretty much anything outdoors. Another truly huge passion is working with buyers and sellers in real estate!
My extensive knowledge of the market and ability to understand a buyer's needs, tastes and values make me the perfect agent to find you the right property. I understand the importance of communication, professionalism and fun when making one of the biggest decisions in a person's life. For sellers, I go above and beyond most realtors, with unique marketing ideas, staging, and communication. For sellers, my complete understanding of the market ensures that your home will be priced correctly to get it sold quickly and get you the most money possible at closing!
I am originally from northern California, but have called Bozeman home for the past 19 years. My education is in regional/city planning, and I worked as a planner for the city of Bozeman and Gallatin County, so if you need someone with knowledge of how the Bozeman area develops, I’m the one to ask!
I worked in the construction industry for 14 years as a project manager for many Gallatin Valley commercial and residential projects. My extensive knowledge of how buildings, and the systems that sustain them, are designed and constructed is an added value when working with me to select your next home or property.
In 2016 I also started Arris, my own property-services company. Along with commercial and residential property management, Arris offers vacation-rental management and concierge services. I also provide construction-management services, providing oversight during the building or remodeling process.
Aside from multi-tasking at work, I love being on the trails with my dogs. You can catch me most weekends running one of the many nearby trails. I also created Bozeman Canine Classic, an organization devoted to planning, hosting and organizing running and walking fundraising events for dogs. The spring event – the K9 9K – is the largest community dog event in Bozeman and in four years has raised close to $70,000 for great dog-related causes.
I love helping clients make the steps into home ownership as well as discover their next dream home.
In 1996 my husband and I moved to Bozeman where I finished my degree at Montana State University. Go Cats! We fell in love with Montana’s wide open spaces, rugged mountains and big skies. Real estate called to me in 2003 after working as a project manager for my family’s construction company. I took some time out of real estate to start a family and a successful business where I further developed my marketing and management skills and created a vast network of contacts. Real estate was never far from my thoughts and eventually I was called back to the industry to help clients find the perfect property.
When not in the office, you can often find me in the mountains hiking, kayaking, skiing and fishing with my husband, three kids and best dog Ziggy. If you need help buying or selling your home, I'm just a call or email away.
I believe that integrity and client commitment lead to lasting relationships.
Over the past 12 years, I have developed an all-inclusive approach to residential real estate that allows me to provide clients with in-depth and appropriate property analysis and has led to lasting and meaningful relationships with many repeat clients.
This approach is informed by my comprehensive knowledge of the local real-estate market, residential design and construction. I graduated from the School of Architecture at Texas Tech University in 2005; and am a licensed real-estate agent in Montana with Small Dog Realty, and a licensed general contractor in Montana and New Mexico.
I find that helping buyers visualize the full potential of a property is the most rewarding aspect of the business, and I am eager to help you with residential real-estate transactions, residential design, construction, historic preservation or real-estate development projects. Call me at (406) 224.3145.
Born and raised on a small ranch in southcentral Montana, my love and knowledge of this beautiful state has been a great help in my real estate career. I went to school in Bozeman and became a realtor sales agent in 1990 and earned my broker’s designation in 1996.
For more than a decade, my husband and I owned a small ranch in the Shields Valley, where we raised our son. We sold the ranch and moved back to Bozeman in 2010.
Real estate is my passion! I love meeting new people and helping them find the perfect home, ranch or business. I joined Small Dog Realty in the spring of 2013 and I love the job and my small dog!
As an early transplant from California in 1977, I was raised in SW Montana. I loved growing up here, and the ideals and values that derived from it were items that my husband and I cherished and taught our children to appreciate as well. Being able to enjoy the freedom of being raised in a community where kids could ride their bikes all day long, fish along the banks of the river until dusk and establish life-long friendships as we had when growing up is truly irreplaceable.
I became a Realtor in 1997 and received my Brokers license in 2008. This career path came naturally, as being able to help solve a client’s problem, simple or complex, was always my forte. My years of experience in the property management arena also provides me first-hand, in-depth knowledge and insight on homes that my clients regularly seek me out to obtain. In addition, my resources for maintenance and repair folks also lends itself to quite a list.
I look forward to assisting you in your search for the home that will suit all your needs. 10% of my commission in the sale or purchase of a home will be donated to RezQ Dogs. For more information about this fabulous organization go to www.rezqdogs.org
Susi Dokken spent nearly 20 years as an International pilot for United Airlines, her dream since she was a young girl, until she retired and traveled the world with her husband and 3 young sons in 2003-04. They were looking for an adventure but were also looking for a new place to live and explore. They briefly contemplated a sheep farm in New Zealand and a vineyard in Tuscany but eventually came back to the United States to keep searching. Then they found Montana and fell in love. Susi had lived in 6 states and briefly in Florence, Italy and thought she would always keep moving to new places but that was before she found Bozeman and her wandering soul found serenity.
Bozeman is unlike anywhere she had visited or lived. It is a vibrant college town with a fast growing economy, and extraordinary airport, a tech center and vacation central. it is 90 miles from Yellowstone National Park and 12 miles from Bridger Bowl ski slopes and is surrounded by mountain ranges with pristine streams in the valley floor. Bozeman lifestyle is the envy of a nation. You are minutes from trails to hike, mountains to ski, streams to fish and rocks to climb. Bozeman is young, ambitious, historic, casual, inspiring and rejuvenating. Let Susi share her passion for SW Montana and help you find a place to call your own.
Originally from Northern Minnesota, I have called Southwest Montana my home for 15 years. After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Communication from Northern Michigan University and being a member of their NCAA Alpine Skiing program, I returned to my hometown of Duluth to coach ski racing near the shores of Lake Superior. An impromptu ski trip to Big Sky in 2003, however, made it clear to me that Montana truly is the Last Best Place, with its endless outdoor recreation opportunities and stunning backdrop. I simply couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else, and moved to Big Sky the following winter. In 2014 I moved to Bozeman, and am proud to be a professional ski patrol at Big Sky Resort.
Skiing isn’t the only way to enjoy life around these parts; mountain biking, snowmobiling, hiking, horseback riding, and camping are just a few ways to witness the breathtaking beauty of Montana. Three National Parks are within a half day’s drive of Bozeman, as well as some of the best fly fishing in the world. As Bozeman continues to grow and thrive, you’ll not want to miss the opportunity to make Southwest Montana your home.
With over 20 years in hospitality, a designer’s painstaking care to detail, and a whole lot of that Finnish Sisu, I can’t wait to make you feel right at home in our beautiful corner of Montana!
