Local Values And Global Experiences

A world traveler, fly fisherman, golfer, explorer and successful Real Estate Professional, we are proud to introduce Patrick Hanes.  Patrick began his real estate career nearly 30 years ago in Hawaii representing “properties in paradise” much as he is doing today in NW Montana. Since that time has had the privilege of working with developers and clients from all over the world.   I have worked in several countries including Dubai, South Africa, Thailand and Mexico.  The most memorable was the time I spent in Dubai working for the largest real estate developer on the iconic Palm Jumeirah.  I witnessed the early construction of this fantastic island development and ultimately found myself living in one of the “Palm” residences.  Truly amazing.” Patrick and his wife Cheryl have now been residents of Bigfork for over 17 years and are avid supporters of the Bigfork Art and Cultural Center with Cheryl serving as the Executive Director. When you meet Patrick you immediately see the appreciation he has for Montana and we wanted to know among all the places he has seen and lived in why he ended up in Montana? “The world is becoming increasingly crowded, complex and environmentally compromised. However, Montana still offers clean air, clean water, wide open spaces and a simple and fulfilling quality of life. Sharing the beauty of Montana and offering clients the opportunity to enjoy this quality of life makes my job a pleasure.” In the summer of 2017 Patrick had the privilege of representing Sentinel Pine, a sprawling Montana estate. This 30 acre, waterfront property was shared with a worldwide and affluent audience as Mansion Globals “Listing Of The Day”.   “Representing the sellers of the Sentinel Pine property on Swan Lake has been very special. The estate has been in the same family for over 73 years and is truly a one of a kind property in our area. Although we successfully closed on a portion of the property I am looking forward to working with the spectacular remaining parcel.” Many of us know that right now it is a seller’s market, and the Flathead Valley saw historic residential sales in 2017. So, we asked Patrick what advice he would give to someone who is considering putting their Montana property up for sale? “Simple. Ask yourself, should I list with a local/regional brokerage or a brokerage with a massive global marketing outreach with over 20,000 agents worldwide? Go with the group that offers you the best chance of selling your property and telling its unique story across the globe.” To learn more about Patrick Hanes and his current listings please visit glaciersir.com or click here.
