About Denise Lang

“Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” Gloria Steinem

Discovering the Flathead Valley

We found the Flathead Valley in 2000, after residing in Colorado for the previous 20 years. With three sons and a daughter, we yearned for a small town, friendly people, natural beauty and tons of outdoor recreation. It seemed that a cabin in the woods was just about the best lifestyle that we could imagine. Who wouldn’t love the Flathead Valley with its friendly people and unusually natural beauty? Now the children are grown and we fill our empty nest with Bernese Mountain dogs! It has been the ideal place for us and for so many of my clients who have come to find their dreams. With a backdrop of pristine waters and majestic mountains, days are filled with fly fishing, boating, hiking, golfing and skiing. The Big Sky beckons one to discover the beauty of nature!

Clients become friends

Living in Bigfork, where the Swan and Flathead Rivers meet, has offered me an opportunity to get to know the homes, the land, the culture and the amazing people who live in the Flathead Valley. Each day I apply that knowledge to the real estate business for the benefit of my clients. I have helped buyers and sellers achieve their goals whether it is a home on a golf course, a waterfront property, an equestrian acreage, a modest starter for a first time buyer or a sale to move forward in life. The high point throughout the process--clients have become my best friends.

Giving back to the community over time

Bigfork’s art, music and drama scene is ever inspiring and the many wonderful area restaurants offer a perfect venue to develop long lasting friendships. One of my favorite things to do is introduce clients and potential home buyers to all the exciting activities in the area. It is one of the reasons I support Bigfork’s non-profit organizations with my time, energy and money. I love living here and I want to share this special place with everyone I meet. And just for fun…see me on HGTV “Living Big Sky.”

Denise was absolutely invaluable to our move, she walked me through every step of the way withher considerable knowledge and patience. She did a wonderful job of making the whole stressful process much less so and making me feel like I was in the hands of someone who truly cared. We were very lucky to get to know and work with her and I couldn't have found a better person to put our trust into.

She is a consummate professional who brings everything you need to the table, whether you are buying or selling. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking  for a dedicated, experienced and effective advocate for your interests and I wouldn't consider using anyone other than Denise for your real estate needs.

~ Brad

Denise Lang has been great to work with! Denise is professional, knowledgeable and was responsive to our needs. She gave our home her dedicated attention and used her expertise to market and attract potential buyers. The actual sale of our home involved a relocation service which required extra time and effort on Denise's part. She made sure all of the additional requirements were handled efficiently and effectively. Denise has a wonderful sense of humor. We got along great throughout the selling process. Thank you Denise for sharing your skills with us! We would recommend you highly to anyone needing realy services in the Flathead Valey.

~ Kelly

The first thing that impressed me about Denise is that she sought me out when I was looking  to relist my house for sale. When we set up our first meeting she came prepared- with market data and statistics that made it comfortable to know how to price the home. 

~ Robin & Gary

I had my house on the market with another Realtor for more than one year with no accepted offers. After listing with Denise, I had an offer within one week. She held the deal together until closing. She is very tenacious and an excellent professional.

~ David Greer, Kalispell

I have worked with lots of Realtors over the years. Denise is by far the absolute best. She was extremely patient and genuinely caring. She wanted us to find the right HOME for our needs. She listened to us, and she was helpful not only in finding our home, but in helping us find the area that suited us as well. She was always there when we had a question or concern, and she has become a friend as well. If you are considering a move, you couldn’t find a better person to invest your trust in than Denise.

~ John and Barbara Moran, Bigfork

Denise Lang was the wonderful agent for the sale of our home. Professional and knowledgeable, she patiently guided us through an uncertain market. We are very grateful to her and enthusiastically recommend her to anyone who needs real estate expertise.

~ Susan & Ed Nolde, Maine

Wow. We knew when we selected you to represent us for the sale of our home that you would fulfill your excellent reputation as a highly professional go-getter! You did ‘get ‘er done’ too! Thank you for working with us from the very start by listening to our wishes, then lining up a high caliber house photo shoot, promoting our home through various forms of media and keeping us updated weekly. All in all, our experience was wonderful – pleasantly ‘exhausting’ due to the rapid and numerous showings scheduled that made ours a most positive process. Just as you had accomplished with two of our family members previously, you both listed and sold our property and made it a lovely time. Thank you, Denise! It was really fun working with you!

~ Andy and Anne Miller

I just wanted to send you a quick letter from both Shawna and me thanking you for all of your help over the last many, many months. Your steady frendship, spirit, guidance, and, when needed, good humor, were greatly appreciated.  We hope we are able to keep in touch, but until we talk again, thank you. 

~ Mack and Shawna

We really appreciated all the help you gave us in the long drawn-out process of purchasing our Dayton house. It's great to live on the gorgeous Flathead Lake. We are very grateful- we could not have accomplished all that was reqired without your expertise.

~ Clarke and Renee

Thank you for the professional job! You are the best I have seen.

~ John

Denise, thank you for your outstanding work in selling both my Eagle Bend home and vacant multi-family lot.  Each property sale had obstacles to overcome and with your assistance we were able to get both deals done this winter.  I have and will recommend you to anyone seeking real estate services in the Flathead Valley.  Thank you for your hard work.
