Jennifer Shelley | Real Estate Realtor® / Agent

There’s no place like Montana, according to Jennifer. In any season, you’ll be drawn into her enthusiasm for the Flathead Valley. Summer to winter, Jennifer steals time away from her busy real estate career to swim, hike, boat, snowshoe, hunt upland game birds, and compete in Sporting Clay shooting. As a little girl growing up in rural New Jersey, she dreamed of living in the Rocky Mountains. When her dad returned from his trophy hunting trips, Jennifer would pour over his photos knowing it was just a matter of time until she came west.
Always the tomboy, Jennifer started her outdoor life early... dirt biking at 6, exploring in the woods, blazing trails, building forts, and learning to drive the WW2 Willys Jeep at 10 years old. Finding Bigfork was a predestined accident. A Smith River float trip had been canceled, so Jennifer and her dad came to Bigfork to visit friends. “When I flew over Flathead Lake, I knew I had found my pot of gold...my OZ!”


After a 20-year detour as a project manager for software development projects, Jennifer came back to her dream career in real estate that had been on her mind since she first saw the Flathead Valley 30 years ago. “I consider it a privilege to walk these beautiful parcels of property and help clients find exactly what they are looking for in a home, investment, and most importantly, a lifestyle...”


Jennifer currently raises her four children, has had her sales put her in the top 1% of real estate agents in the Flathead Valley in an incredibly tough market, and is also the 2010, 2011 & 2016 Montana Women’s Sporting Clays Champion. She considers being a champion for the Montana lifestyle the result of a lifelong dream! 


Jennifer believes being the best takes dedication,commitment, and hard work.


“I am committed to helping my clients realize their dreams in the Flathead Valley!”

I didn’t initially list my townhouse in Bigfork, Montana, with Jennifer Shelley. I started this process with another realtor and went through months of little communication, no showings, and essentially no progress. When I transferred the listing to Jennifer, everything changed. First of all, she was on the phone talking to me about opportunities and methods of advertising, and she was upbeat and optimistic about getting the job done. She continued to be goal-directed, positive, and detailed. She took the time to call and explain each lead and also provided feedback from people who had visited the townhouse. During the negotiation prior to the sale, she was extremely detailed and forthcoming, and she provided critical information in a time-sensitive fashion such that the expectations could be understood and met. I recommend Jennifer with the highest level of enthusiasm. When I am back in the market, she will be the only realtor I contact. Working with her was a 100% winning proposition. All occurred in a terribly down market.

Jennifer Shelley was one of the most effective and efficient realtors that I have had the pleasure of working with over the years. I have been involved in housing development since the early 1980’s and have dealt with many real estate professionals. Jennifer consistently keeps the client’s needs foremost in her mind, communicates as much as is needed to keep everyone up to speed, and is always available. Jennifer goes the “extra mile” and she is always positive and upbeat. She does whatever it takes to get the deal done and is a true joy to work with! I look forward to work¬ing with her again if the opportunity arises.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Bigfork, MT.

Jennifer Shelley performed above our expectations. Her knowledge and experience in regards to the real estate market in the Greater Flathead Region was fantastic. Jennifer always followed up with us in a very expeditious manner. We had some "last minute" requests for information and home showings and Jennifer reacted very quickly to our requests. She also handled herself in a very professional manner through the entire home buying process. She was extremely helpful in helping us purchase our dream property in the Flathead Valley. We would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for property in Northwest Montana.

Jennifer is the consummate professional. Her organization skills, knowledge of the process, assistance with finding a competitive loan, communication skills and responsiveness, minimized the time required for a successful closing. She is very friendly and tuned into the individual needs of her clients. I would highly recommend Jennifer to represent your best interests in any Real Estate transaction

We were looking for a second home in Whitefish Montana and were referred to Jennifer. We were undecided as to where or what style of home we wanted. In advance of our trip to Whitefish, Jennifer provided us with home inventory online with enough information to weed down our selections before we arrived. Once on the ground she provided us with data on local builders, zoning limitations on nightly rentals, and info on builders etc. We were able to fly in for two days and find our dream location. She is knowledgeable, listens to your needs and is a great negotiator. But most important she is is fun to be around and on the long days in the car looking at property made our search a great time.

I first met Jennifer on-line when considering moving to Big Fork, Mt. From the very beginning she was very attentive to what I was telling here. She sent a lot of info for me to consider. When I arrived to start looking at properties she had an itinerary already planned and spent a lot of time with me looking at property. When we finally settled on a property during the second visit to Montana, the entire closing process went very smoothly. Jennifer is very knowledgeable of the area and very pleasant to work with. I don't how you could choose a better agent!

~ B. & G., Bigfork
