Steve Davenport had the responsibility of selling 25 acres of Montana land which had been in my family for more than a century. I had wanted to dispose of this property for a long time but earlier had had an unfortunate experience when being contacted by another organization such as yours. I had received a mailing from Steve in 2020 and then another in 2021. This year I approached him with caution and perhaps during our first conversation had pointed out to him my concerns. I felt that he was very straightforward in his response assuring me that he was a trustworthy agent. During all of our dealings I felt that he was indeed! Our first meeting was over lunch on Memorial Day weekend in Deer Lodge, Montana. His self confidence and Montana-type friendliness made a superior impression on me as well as on the couple who had the first right of refusal on the property. He had visited the property although we had no signed agreement so that he could talk knowledgeably about its advantages and drawbacks. We parted that day in full agreement to proceed with plans for a formal agreement for Steve to handle the sale. That was handled so easily by e-mail. He suggested a price which seemed fine to me. Steve is obviously experienced in the business, so we moved ahead with finesse. He invariably behaved above the normal – always doing the needful in advance. He worked very skillfully with the rancher who wanted the property very badly and who had the first right of refusal but wanted it as grazing land and not as as a residence property so was willing to offer only about 8-10% of the final selling price. Steve went to their home in Gold Creek for signatures and conversations and when their decision was made to forego the first right of refusal, Steve was thoughtful enough to visit them with a nice bottle in hand! Steve was everywhere, the property, the home of the Gold Creek rancher, the Powell County Clerk and Recorder’s office, dealing with an attorney and the firm in Missoula handling the sale. Although I do not reside in Montana, I felt that he kept me well apprised of the process, the progress, the negatives, and the positives. We talked by e-mail nearly every day and occasionally by phone. Always he was Johnnie on the spot, always a gentle step ahead of me and if not, eager to respond to my every thought. I have been a professional person for more than 60 years and I would place Steve right at the top with those I have enjoyed working with the most. I give Steve the highest possible marks for the entire process – his knowledge of the undertaking, his personal kindness, his gentle and understanding personality, his patience, his willingness to go the extra mile, his flexibility, not being disturbed when details arose of which he had no knowledge and handling them in stride – just work through them – absolutely excellent in every respect. I believe that he is a genuine jewel, and that Whitetail Properties is very fortunate to have him as a member of your team. I anticipate a very bright future for him.
He had professionalism and a positive attitude.
I just wanted to let you know what an experience it has been to work with Brian while buying my first piece of land. He has been very informative and patient while answering all of my many questions. I believe he is a great asset to your company!
Prior to our first meeting, Josh becamse familiar with our place. With that knowledge, he presented a plan that gave us confidence in him, that he would do his best. He was always upfront with any concerns we might have. Josh kept in touch with the progress of the sale and problems which arose from interested people. Any calls made to him with questions - he answered honestly and i knew he had our best interest in mind.
Todd Edwards has done an amazing job for us. Several years ago, Todd helped us find this property by making sure to listen to our wants, needs, and price range goals of our search.
The entire process from the Offer, to Purchase, through the Closing of the Sale, went so smoothly!
When we decided to sell our property, he helped us find the perfect family to buy it. This was a long distance, time intensive sale. Todd stayed in constant contact with us, as well the Buyer, making sure all questions/answers were communicated in a timely manner.
We counted on Todd to find a way to get the job done! He responded and followed up in a timely manner. If he didn't immediately have the answer, he let us know that as well.
Todd did his research, found the answer, then made sure all parties were on the same page forward. This one act alone, for us, confirmed the committment he has made to be our Professional Realtor.
We want to thank Todd for his help, effort, and guidance, in all aspects of our relationship. Whitetail Properties should be very proud to have a realtor like Todd Edwards respresenting their company.
Paul Vaicunas sold our farm last summer, which we are very thankful for his time and effort, all went well and it was a good sale.
