My wife, Katie, and I relocated to Bigfork in 1987 to manage the sales and marketing efforts of the Eagle Bend Golf Community. We then transitioned into the ownership and development of Trails West Real Estate and fell in love with Bigfork. We have always believed in supporting this wonderful community by being involved in a variety of local organizations. In past years, I have served on the local School Board, Bigfork Playhouse Foundation Board, Chamber of Commerce and Bigfork Community Development Board. Currently, I serve onEagle Bend Scholarship Board, President's Council of the Intermountain Children's Home and the Board of Child Bridge, a local foster home and adoptive placement organization. I believe involvement is critical to enhance the integrity and increase the value of the real estate industry. In the past, I have served on our local Board of Realtors and the Board of the Montana Association of Realtors. Among others, I have been a member of the Legislative Committee, Political Action Committee, Education Committee and Professional Standards Committee. In 2009, I received the Northwest Montana Association of Realtors Salesperson of the Year Award. Last, but certainly not least, I love the Flathead Valley! Naturally, tha t makes it a pleasure and a joy to market and sell your property. I get the daily opportunity to introduce prospective new residents to the incredible lifestyle that my wife and I so readily enjoy from our home on the Swan River. Although our two children have grown and left the nest, they cant wait to come home to Montana. Our daughter Elli is making excellent use of her Business/Marketing degree in Portland, Oregon and our son, Casey is actively pursuing his acting career in New York City.
