After earning his business degree from Pace University in New York, Sam worked at, and eventually became owner of Chatsworth Auction Rooms & Furniture Studios, Inc. in Mamaroneck, New York. His experience in the world of antiques, artwork and estate furnishings sharpened his eye for detail and his instinct for style, quality and craftsmanship. Sam has bought, sold and appraised the possessions of thousands of affluent estates in New York and Connecticut, working directly with homeowners for 35 years. His experience and proficiency in negotiation, buying, and selling are now valuable assets to his real estate clients.



  • Current President of Rotary Club of Big Sky, and has been actively involved in Rotary's funding and installation of new Emergency Call Boxes in Gallatin Canyon and a Children's Playground located in Big Sky's new Town Center Plaza
  • Emergency Medical Technician, and has been a member of the Big Sky Volunteer Ski Patrol for 9 years
  • Assistant coach for the Lone Peak High School Women's Basketball Team
  • Member of the Gallatin, Montana and National Association of Realtors



Sam is an outdoor enthusiast, and grew up skiing and hiking the Adirondack Mountains of New York, as well as Vermont. He and his wife Jeanne have been members of the Big Sky community since 2007 where they love to ski & hike with their 3 grown children whenever they're in town. Anyone who knows Sam would call him easy-going, conscientious and personable. If you ask him about his Piano playing, he replies humbly, but to us he sounds like a master Pianist. Sam is also an accomplished amateur artist. He is always happy to share his knowledge, experience and expertise with clients who own, or would like to own a piece of what we call home...Big Sky, Montana.


I highly recommend Sam Lightbody. With Sam's help we were able to get a feeling for the Meadow Village, Mountain Village, Town Center, and their respective surrounding neighborhoods. We were impressed with his local knowledge, and friendly, professional manner. He also played a key roll in keeping the deal together after we were in escrow on a house we fell in love with. I highly recommend Sam for those wanting a friendly knowledgeable Realtor. Read More - David Horne DVM

Sam Lightbody was highly recommended to us and he certainly lived up to the compliments.  We sold our Big Sky condo quickly and had a trouble-free transaction.  When one pesky little issue came up after the inspection, Sam handled it smoothly and well to the complete satisfaction to both the seller and the buyer.  His own enthusiasm for the Big Sky area makes him a great representative!
