A native Montanan and lifelong outdoors man, Kelly Laabs of Glacier Sotheby’s International Realty affably shares his passion for the Flathead Valley and all the joy it brings to each family he serves, including his own. After graduating from the University of Montana with a degree in Business Administration, he combines more than 20 years of proven sales and marketing experience to effectively engage with his clients. I recently got to ask Kelly some questions about what sets him apart as a Real Estate Professional and his ambitions: What do you love most about Montana?
“Most EVERYTHING is incredible about Montana, but I would have to say that it’s the people and the landscape that I’m most drawn to.”
What made you decide to get into real estate?
“Growing up my mother was a broker and my father was a builder so I have been exposed to the industry most of my life. I have been passionate about architecture and I feel like land and water are our greatest resources. In my mind, there is nothing more romantic than an exceptional recreational ranch. And from a skill set I have always been passionate about marketing, sales, and negotiation so a real estate career has been a great fit. And I have been extremely fortunate to serve many of the clients that I have, as I have truly enjoyed and become great friends with many of them.”
What are your aspirations?
“To spend as much time as possible with friends and family, enjoy the activities I’m most passionate about and now that I have a little girl, hopefully introduce and share these things with her. It’s a good life.”
Kelly and his wife are socially active in the community, participating in special events and supporting many good causes around the Valley including CASA, the Tamarack Grief Resource Center, the Samaritan House, and the Watson Children’s Center. What sets you apart as a professional?
“My fresh, modern approach to marketing. I feel like people want something more compelling than the typical real estate experience. I continually research current market conditions and understanding value has played a key role in my success. So on a daily basis, that is what I strive for. I believe clients deserve superior service & to enjoy the process.”
