#1 Realtor in Bigfork, MontanaWithout leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning” Gloria Steinem Discovering the Flathead Valley We found the Flathead Valley in 2000, after residing in Colorado for the previous 20 years. With three sons and a daughter, we yearned for a small town, friendly people, natural beauty and tons of outdoor recreation. It seemed that a cabin in the woods was just about the best lifestyle that we could imagine. Now the children are grown and we fill our empty nest with Bernese Mountain dogs! Who wouldn’t love the Flathead Valley with its friendly people and unusually natural beauty? It has been the ideal place for us and for so many of my clients who have come to find their dreams. With a backdrop of pristine waters and majestic mountains, days are filled with fly fishing, boating, hiking, golfing and skiing. The Big Sky beckons one to discover the beauty of nature! Clients become friends Living in Bigfork, where the Swan and Flathead Rivers meet, has offered me an opportunity to get to know the homes, the land, the culture and the amazing people who live in the Flathead Valley. Each day I apply that knowledge to the real estate business for the benefit of my clients. I have helped buyers and sellers achieve their goals whether it is a home on Eagle Bend golf course, a waterfront property, an equestrian acreage, a modest starter for a first time buyer or a sale to move forward in life. The high point throughout the process–clients have become my best friends. Giving back to the community over time Bigfork’s art, music and drama scene is ever inspiring and the many wonderful area restaurants offer a perfect venue to develop long lasting friendships. One of my favorite things to do is introduce clients and potential home buyers to all the wonderful activities in the area. It is one of the reasons I support Bigfork’s non-profit organizations with my time, energy and money. I love living here and I want to share this wonderful place with everyone I meet. And just for fun…see me on HGTV “Living Big Sky.”
