Montana is in my blood. I am a sixth-generation Montanan with my ancestors homesteading in the late 1800s. I have traveled the US and parts of our world, but only feel home when I am right here in Montana. I served in the US Army and was a part of winning the prestigious 1988 West Germany Boeselager Cup, a competition designed to test the reconnaissance skills of cavalry scout units, which attracted 26 teams from various NATO countries. I also participated in Operation Desert Storm in Saudi Arabia. Having over 30 years of experience in commercial investments, residential and waterfront properties, site acquisition, specialty property and joint ventures, I pride myself in being a skilled negotiator with in-depth experience that few achieve in this industry. You will find me committed to finding your property, whether currently on the market in our MLS, or not. So many of my clients have become lifelong friends…. relationships I treasure.
Bret was very professional and knowledgeable about the area we were interested in. He quickly responded with answers to our questions. This is the second property that he has helped us purchase. We highly recommend Bret for buying or selling a home or property.
Bret was very informative and helpful.
Our purchase took 18 months to close due to title issues. Bret made several amendments and offer changes at our request without hesitation.
Our deal was a very complex deal on a non-typical property and Bret exceeded our expectations.
Great work Bret!
Bret Richmond is the kind of real estate professional you want! I know-- here's why: I was a REALTOR for 40 years and extremely involved in my profession. I was also a "problem solver" and didn't give up 'til the problem was solved. I have used Bret on at least two different occasions in selling my properties in Montana--one during the winter months where Bret went out of his way in dealing with snow-covered access roads to show my property. And he sold it! Then, later, he sold another one! I can foresee using Bret Richmond again, whether buying or selling Montana properties.
Hire the "experienced", it surely makes for a better, smoother real estate transaction. Hire Bret Richmond!
Bret was extremely patient in helping us find our Montana home. He was tuned in to our expectations and understood what we were looking for. He did an excellent job at helping us find an excellent property in our price range, and was very proficient at helping us to navigate the sale. He has also consistently kept with us and helped us out long after the papers were signed.
Bret is the best. Extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of real estate whether it be large commercial acquisitions, residential, or even remote off grid properties. Having worked with Bret on multiple properties I can easily recommend Bret for anyones Real Estate needs. As well as being knowledgeable, Bret is an excellent communicator and very responsive to any questions and needs. He is a skilled negotiator and has the patience to see even difficult deals through to the end. Simply put, Bret puts in the work.
We have worked with Bret a couple of times. He found the land upon which we built our dream home. He also sold a commercial lot for us. We have worked with numerous realtors over the years, and we can say with confidence that his skill is unmatched. No one is more knowledgeable about real estate in the Flathead and Swan Valleys. Once he knows your interest, he will seek it even though your dream property may not be on the market. That's what he did for us, and we couldn't be more pleased. He works hard, follows through and makes transactions easy. His calm demeanor takes undue stress out of any negotiation. If we could give him more than 5 stars, we would.
Think about all the qualities you expect from your real estate agent: a good listener, a good negotiator, patient, respectful, tireless, honest, ethical. That's Bret Richmond. He knows the real estate market in this area like the back of his hand. He puts in the work to earn his commission. He's got good connections with people to help you out even after escrow closes, too. You get more than a great real estate agent when you work with Bret. I've bought and sold with Bret, so I know. You get a friend for life.
Bret did a great job in getting our place on the lake for us.He is so nice to deal with and he was very knowledgeable.Great service and a nice guy!!I would recommend him for a real estate agent!
My wife and I have been looking in the Bigfork area for about 8 months and have made several trips out from our home in Sammamish Wa. to meet with Bret and see some properties that have been of interest. Bret has always been punctual and prepared. His knowledge of the area and dedication to the process has always made my wife and I feel comfortable and confident with who we chose to work with in Montana. I did not rate his negotiation skills only because we have not made an offer on a place yet. That said the conversations we have had with Bret regarding pricing and market value lead me to believe that he will represent us well when we get to that point.
