Great time to be a buyer! Seller's are becoming conditioned to the fact that there are a lot of choices for buyers in the current market so prices are being adjusted. I don't see prices decreasing dramatically as homes are still moving so it is time to stop waiting and buy. Out of state buyers are still coming in and our area is growing so the market will not stay this way for too much longer is my guess. Should start turning the first of the year.
After weeks of rain and from 15-20 degrees colder than normal, I am thrilled to report that summer weather has come! 80 degrees and sun for the next couple of days. Sometimes in NW Montana, that is how it works. We go abruptly from 1 season to the next. Hay crop should be great this year so need ...
Busy weekend at the ranch. We hosted a Kathleen Lindley clinic over the weekend. 6 riders came together to work on what ever need work. From ground work to riding, we saw it all. Kathleen will be back next year to the Flathead Valley  for a longer clinic. John's Angels brought lunch each day and ...
Really, this is more of a Glacier National Park plowing update. Our weather is not helping the plowing crews in the park. Rain in the valley means snow in the mountains. Continued colder weather than this weekend warm may bring avalanches. Here are links to the plowing photos and status of the Go...
Horses cannot smile but he is happy with the rest of us for green grass, sun, and warmer temps!
The first 3 day weekend is upon us in the Flathead Valley. Hotels and resorts are reporting an increase in bookings for this summer. Last year was way up and this year might even surpass it. If you plan on staying in a historic Glacier Park Lodge this summer, be aware that my favorite: Many Glac...
Spring is sprung. Trees are leafing out, green all around. If you are reading this from a different part of the country, it may seem late to you for me to be talking about Springs arrival. It was a snowy winter and everything is at least 3 weeks behind. You better believe we are all thrilled with...
   A God inspired deal. I had a listing for almost 4 years when I convinced the sellers who recently moved away, to rent the house and take it off the market. They had come on the market originally just when things were slowing down and in the past 4 years did price reductions but were always beh...
Last weekend there were approximately 7000 attendees to Fresh Life Church's Easter service at Majestic Valley Arena! That is the capacity and it was standing room only so therefore the estimate. We were blown away by all the people who had parked along Hwy 93 and Church Drive and walked to the ar...
Happy Good Friday! It seems somehow appropriate that we have a winter storm warning until noon on Good Friday. Looking forward to Good Friday service at the Majestic Valley Arena on Sunday at 10am. Should be amazing! Titled "All Will Rise". City of Kalispell has been proposing a "transaction fee"...
Just like most parts of the country, the economy and slow down in construction is impacting the tax base and school levies. Last week it appeared Kalispell would lose 7 firefighters. I am happy to say that the union and the city worked hard together to re-structure man hours and it looks like thi...
