Our very own Jon Ellen Snyder, Broker at ERA Landmark Western Land in Livingston, was recently quoted in an article by MarketWatch.com about tech gadgets for the home. As reported in the article:
A big reason smart home technology is becoming more mainstream: “They’re making things so user friendly, so it’s easy for people to adopt the technology,” said Jon Ellen Snyder, a Montana real-estate broker with ERA Landmark in the Bozeman/Livingston area. It is also becoming more affordable, which helps in bringing it to the masses, she said.
Working in real estate creates many opportunities to interact with other professionals in related industries. Not long ago, I coordinated a client meeting with Brandi Visser; owner of Centre Staging. I attended the initial consult and was very impressed with her home staging knowledge. The client took Brandi’s advice and the home looked incredibly different once the staging was complete. Brandi has some great advice for anyone selling a home.

Robyn Erlenbush was recently featured on Inman News highlighting ERA Landmark's unique approach to photography.
Quality photography is worth its weight in gold. We shoot high-quality interior and exterior photos on our weekly tours to use in all print and internet advertising, virtual tours, company brochures and office display. We also take advantage of the many talented professional photographers in southwest Montana to enhance listings as well as our website and downtown showcase office. It's about selling the Montana lifestyle.
The road to home ownership is exciting and full of decisions. Viewing available houses to find the one that best meets a buyer’s personal tastes, needs, and budget can be time consuming and sometimes results in not finding a home that is “just right.” For people with a bit more inspiration and the luxury of time, the option to buy a vacant building lot or acreage on which to build a brand new home might be a viable alternative.
