Earning recognition as a top-producing agent, Carissa understands not only that buying and selling real estate is one of the greatest financial decisions you make in life but also, that there are other aspects beyond the look and feel of a property that can put one years-ahead financially.

From the current market to every stage of the real estate transaction, she is an ultimate resource. Carissa facilitates the buying and selling process as your partner, not as a sales person, as, in the end, she believes that her client's satisfaction is all that really matters.

It is her mission to give back to her community and to her clients.

"I love Montana and the lifestyle it offers. I count myself fortunate to have grown up in Bozeman and to continue to call it HOME. Ultimately, I want my clients and their families to have what I have - a home that I love, in a place that I love. To accomplish this I remain determined and hands on with each sale from start to finish—and do everything possible to make sure my clients find exactly what they are looking for. Being a home/property owner, I realize that the investment my clients make in real estate is one of the biggest and most important investments in their lives. I understand my clients have unique needs, as well as desires and work closely with every client to understand THEIR goals, to meet THEIR needs and to create a lasting relationship. As such, I don't take my responsibility lightly and promise to go the extra mile for my buyers and sellers. My Bozeman background offers a grounded network of friends and business relationships. My knowledge of the area lends me to be a valuable local resource. If you are considering putting your property on the market, purchasing a home, or investing in local real estate, regardless of property type or price point, I would love to streamline and simplify the process for you. I understand the key components that make for successful purchase and sale of residential, land and recreational properties." - Carissa
