Montana is a great place to call home, where the people are second to none. After obtaining a degree from Montana State University in Business Marketing and working as a sales agent for a few years, I returned back home to the family ranch in Terry, Montana. Being raised on a ranch in Eastern Montana has given me an honest, hard working work ethic. My love of the land is paramount and the real estate industry gives me the opportunity to help people fulfill their dreams and desires.
