Southwest Montana Properties & Financial Planning

After more than thirty years as a Financial Planner in California and a specialist in 1031 real estate exchanges, I have joined GALLATIN VALLEY REAL ESTATE here in Bozeman as a Realtor Associate, offering high-end properties to buyers seeking an up-scale home, here in Bozeman, Big Sky and the surrounding area.  I am interested in representing Buyers as well as Sellers.

Building in the Bozeman area is starting to pick up and buyers are returning to the marketplace. Amazingly, there are over ninety high-tech firms now located in Bozeman, largely because of the attractive southwest Montana lifestyle and access to Montana State University.

Prices have been depressed and are slow to recover so now is a good time to buy. At Big Sky, you can still buy a very nice home at 50% of its former cost. In Bozeman, we are looking at high end homes selling at about 90% of current asking price but considerably lower than their 2007 high.

Bozeman is an attractive, active community with many cultural activities taking place throughout the year. In addition to the symphony and opera, there is The Ellen Theatre managed by a former Disney executive and the Museum of the Rockies with its superb dinosaur hall and constantly changing travelling exhibits.  Skiing, fishing rafting, kayaking, hiking, mountain climbing enthusiasts are constantly kept busy here in the beautiful northern Rockies.

Allow me the opportunity to represent you in finding your perfect piece of heaven here in southwest Montana and to help solidify your financial security for the future. Please contact me with any questions you have.
