John Muir once wrote, “The mountains are calling and I must go…” His prophetic words have been followed by many Montanans. We all yearn to drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road to see the Triple Divide, or carve epic turns at Big Sky, or land a cutthroat trout with its bright red slashes in the waters of the Gallatin, or the Bitterroot, or the Blackfoot. These are but a few of the reasons that brought me to Bozeman, in the shadow of the Bridger Range, in 2014. Immediately upon arrival I became involved in property management at Big Sky, which gave me a unique perspective and unprecedented access to multiple property types. With a deep affinity for design, architecture and home building, I was quickly inspired to pursue a career in real estate. After starting a successful commercial/residential painting business, I earned an associate broker’s license and now work alongside Pam McCutcheon at Small Dog Realty. Like Pam, I believe that “living in Montana is so much more than owning a piece of real estate.” When representing home buyers, I enjoy venturing off the beaten track to find the hidden gem that reveals Montana’s gift to those who aspire to it. And not just the beaten track. These gems may be found throughout the Gallatin Valley for families seeking a home in beautifully designed neighborhoods with excellent schools, fine dining and shopping, and the arts. For home sellers, I use Small Dog’s extensive suite of marketing, photography and graphic design tools to reveal a property’s best qualities and then share them with perspective buyers from across the country. Montana is calling. Let’s find your gem together.
