Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. I can also provide you with a list of local service providers such as lenders and home inspectors to assist you in the purchase process.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who knows the local market, will advertise your home, schedule showings of your home to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can provide advice to make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
My family and I moved to Missoula, Montana in 2002 from Nashville, Tennessee. I was licensed in 2002 and acquired my real estate brokers license in 2007 and started my own company, "Missoula Valley Properties, LLC" in 2009.
Before moving to Missoula I lived in Nashville, Tn. where I spent over 20 years in the country music industry as a performer/singer/songwriter. I sang with country music artists such as Tanya Tucker, Brenda Lee, and Loretta Lynn. I wrote the # 1 single, "Love a Little Stronger" for the country music recording group "Diamond Rio" which was also the title cut of the CD in 1994 after which I obtained my own record deal with a subsidiary of Polydor records with the country music vocal group "Four Runner" which recorded and released the top 20 single "Cain's Blood" in 1995. After almost twenty years in the country music business I decided that it was time for a change.
So fast forward to the present. I now live in Missoula, Mt. where my wonderful wife Pam (aka, Sunny Russ, also a singer songwriter) is originally from, we have two beautiful children and we are committed to making a difference in the world and to our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. I am a blessed man and wouldn't change a thing about my life. My goal in life was never to be "rich or famous", it was to make a living doing what I loved to do and to make a difference in people's lives (and at the time I thought music was a good way to do that).
I now take that same attitude to the real estate industry where I can also help make a difference in people's lives. Few things give me more satisfaction than helping people acquire their first home or their dream home and if I am given the opportunity I would be privileged to help make a difference in your life as well.
My goal is to honor God the Father and the Son, Jesus Christ and create rewarding, life long relationships in my personal life and profession.
