The associates of ERA Landmark have been giving back to the community during our Season of Giving for 32 years. But like all things 2020, this year has been a little different. The need is greater, our hearts are bigger, and even the smallest gift seems to mean a bit more.
As we move through November each year, many people make an effort to slow down, regroup and take the opportunity to count their blessings. At ERA Landmark, the agents and staff feel there is so much for which to be thankful. Some have been in Montana their whole lives and never left. (“Why mess with a good thing?”) Others were raised here, wandered elsewhere for a wide variety of reasons, and returned back to their original home. (“The grass may not have been greener.”) Still more stumbled across our great state or waited for the right transition point in their lives to relocate. (“Saving the best for last.”)
Following the lead of this month’s Business to Business progress theme, I will focus on three area businesses that exemplify impressive and innovative growth techniques. Plonk, the 320 Guest Ranch, and High Country Rental shared their individual approaches to staying successful. These entrepreneurs and countless other businesses are rolling up their sleeves every day to remain viable and growth oriented. Many companies in our area are expanding or differentiating themselves in order to keep up with the changing consumer and market demands.
In support of the Bridger Foothills Fire Relief effort, ERA Landmark’s Stronger Together t-shirt campaign is in full swing. Our associates have made donations, supporters have placed orders and the first round of shirts have been printed! It’s been heartwarming to see everyone come together for a great cause.
As dedicated Big Sky agents with decades of experience, we have seen quiet times and crazy periods. We have not always had solid numbers to compare inventory levels, absorption rates and days on the market. 2006 saw more companies participating in the Southwest Montana MLS and more consistent sales data. Based on this information, we can better analyze the current market.

Anne Keith, a math teacher at Bozeman’s Chief Joseph Middle School, has been named Montana’s teacher of the year.
On the afternoon of Friday, September 4th, a column of smoke suddenly appeared on the west side of the Bridger Mountains just north of the iconic “M”. With the hot, dry and windy conditions, the fire spread quickly...With every hardship that has occurred this year, what remains true is the strength and resiliency of our community.
Their results come from a comparison of two data sets of happiness levels in each state, one that relied on participants' self-reported well-being and the other an objective measure that took into account a state's weather, home prices and other factors that are known reasons to frown (or smile).
