Susan Kratt | Real Estate Realtor® / Agent

My ties to Montana go back to 1986 when my husband, Tom, and I purchased 26 acres in the Northfork area. After spending time and enjoying the summers at our cabin, we decided to make Bigfork our permanent home in 2005. As Chairperson of the American Cancer Relay for Life, Tennis Tournament Chairperson for the Friends of Bigfork Fire Department Fund Raiser, member of the Bigfork USTA tennis team, and a Realtor for National Parks Realty, I am fully involved in my community. My husband, Tom, is a retired airline pilot and is also involved in the community. Our son, Karl, is a Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. He graduated from Rocky Mountain College in Billings with a degree in Aviation Management and served previously with the Montana National Guard. He proudly served his country on a deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2008-2009 and also a deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2012. He is currently based at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. 

I was born and raised in Texas, hold a Masters Degree from the University of Houston and have taught at the college level. I have also run my own accounting business serving an oil & gas firm in Texas for the past 30 years. We have traveled extensively around the world but throughout my travels, no place holds a candle to the beauty of Montana.

Susan came highly recommended from a colleague, so we knew she had a great reputation. Already knowing she would be great, she was able to far exceed our expectations. As first time home buyers, we needed a great deal of help and Susan didn't hesitate to go above and beyond. She really understood what we were looking for and truly helped us find our perfect home. Susan was incredibly patient with us; she showed us a number of properties (sometimes two or three times!). We are so thrilled with our home and have Susan to thank. I would not hesitate to recommend Susan to anyone looking to buy. If we ever decide to move, she will most certainly be our first call!

This letter is sent to tell of the excellent service myself, my family and friends have received from Susan Kratt in dealing with our real estate needs! The 1st property we dealt with Susan on was a small lake property we purchased on Swan Lake. Her attention to detail and skills at overcoming objections with the seller was more than impressive. Shortly after that transaction both my son and daughter had homes the wanted to sell.

There was no question in my mind about who would be listing them! Both houses sold in a very reasonable amount of time for a fair price to both the buyer and seller. Once again her can do attitude and persistence made both transactions quick and simple. One of the buyers felt after about a year there had been something not properly disclosed on my sons house! With one phone call to Susan the matter was resolved without incident. Her follow up and follow thru have been second to none! About a year later my wife and I decided to purchase a rental house! Once again Susan came to our rescue and found the perfect house at a reasonable price and the whole transaction was smooth and timely.

Thankfully, I have not had the need to buy or sell any real estate since however I have recommended Susan to friends and coworkers that have also appreciated her services. Susan is persistent without being pushy, aggressive along with being honest and will continue to receive any business I have to forward her direction.

~ Sincerely, J.B.


We wanted to buy and we found Susan. She was so sweet to us and really worked to get us what we wanted. She found us a honey of a deal and had to talk the seller down and he wasn't easy to deal with. The thing is, anyone will be your friend till the deal is done but Susan never failed us. We had an issue with the property long after the sale, and she went to bat for us again. Honestly she was a tiger defending us in this issue. If you asked me to give you a word to describe Susan several would apply. Sincerity, Integrity, Heart. She was our friend from the start and is still there for us. We love her.

~ G. & G.


We also really wanted to thank you for everything, you were a tremendous help, and went way above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent. We will forever be grateful and will definitely be recommending you to everyone who needs a house!

Thanks again,
~ Chris
