What Others are
We live in Lewistown and just recently bought a townhouse in Bozeman with
Kim as our realtor and it was incredible! We made a couple trips to Bozeman
to check out some possibilities and once she knew what we were looking for
she emailed us listing and we could shop from home; we made a couple offers
on places without even leaving our living room. Once we located a place we
wanted we completed the majority of the paperwork without having to drive to
Bozeman. Kim’s ability to coordinate paperwork, inspections, title companies
and listings with other realtors made our search and purchase easy and worth
it. If you are looking for a home in the Bozeman area we’d definitely
recommend Kim Konzak as your realtor; you won’t go wrong, we didn’t!

I worked with Kim to buy a
home this spring. I needed a lot of support because I was out of state
and had only seen the inside of the house through pictures and video. Kim
always responded quickly to my questions. She gave very good advice when we
were involved in negotiations. I really liked her very responsive but low
pressure Montana style.

I met Kim a few years ago, when my husband and I were looking for a house in
Bozeman. We were very impressed and taken by her positive energy,
friendliness and exceptional professionalism. Despite her best efforts, my
husband and I did not buy a house at that time. Early this year, I decided
to sell my Bozeman (rental) condo and remembered Kim (who can forget Kim
once you have met her?), so I asked her to be my realtor. It took her 35
days to sell my 1970s condo. And that in a market that is flooded with
condos! Her incredible commitment to getting the job done matched with top-
notch knowledge and professionalism, great advise and constant
communications with me made this such a pleasant experience that now that
the condo is sold, I am (besides being very excited)a bit sad, because I am
going to miss her cheerful, informative and always encouraging e-mails.
Kim is an one of kind realtor. She will always go the extra mile. She
listens to, advises and communicates with her client(s), she will take time
to line up contractors if something needs to be taken care of or skillfully
stages the property for sale to make it more appealing to potential buyers.
Nothing ever seems too much for her.
Selecting a professional rock solid hard working realtor in Montana is easy
- the name is Kim Konzak. Her knowledge of the market and ability to handle
the deal are a rare find. Kim sold my home in a difficult real estate market
while I was located 2,000 miles away. Kim provided weekly updates,
advertised aggressively, returned phone calls immediately and assisted with
repairs and relocation. She was consistent and persistent in support,
advertising and promotions. With so many unknowns in selling a property, Kim
was a rock. She kept the faith for me on selling the house.
My wife and I reside in Michigan and nearly one year ago, we decided to
purchase a second home in Bozeman, Montana. With Kim's help we thoroughly
researched the various neighborhoods and regularly exchanged information
about our wants and needs.
Throughout the process Kim became a trusted partner and like a member of the
family. She was enthusiastic and helpful every step of the way. She was
candid when we needed her opinion and very organized and thorough. With
Kim's guidance and knowledge of the market, we made an offer and
subsequently purchased a wonderful Montana property. The sale was closed
flawlessly and handled by Kim while we were back home in Michigan. As a
direct result of Kim's efforts, what could have been a stressful situation
was turned into a fun and rewarding experience. We will always be grateful
for Kim's help and look forward to her lasting friendship.
I just want to thank you Kim for all
your hard work you have done for us over the last 8 or so years. You were there
when we were trying to find a property and driving up on various weekends from
Colorado (a lot of time with little notice), and you helped us to find two
wonderful properties (Ok, we found lots of wonderful properties, but only two
that we decided that we needed!). You were a great help just recently when our
situations changed and we had to deal with a tricky real estate market to try to
get our house sold. You went above and beyond to follow up with our buyers and
make sure that everything got to closing - even when the buyers had wanted to
drag things out, you helped them come up with a solution to get us to closing.
While I am sad that I no longer own property in the
beautiful state of Montana,
I know that in the future I will look to you if I decide to pursue my retirement
land up North! Thanks again!
I work at US Bank in the Trust Department. We recently took in a property that
needed to be sold right away. I was introduced to Kim Konzak in June. She was
all ready to go on this sale and provide a Market Analysis to me that day, even
though it would be a couple of more months before I could actually list it.
ready to list this property in August. She had the Listing Agreement to me
right away and within a week had a buyer. Because the property is in a Trust,
there is more paperwork to go through, but she was very patient and
understanding throughout the process, and in fact everything went off without a
hitch and the property closed on September 24th.

would not hesitate whatsoever to use her again. I would highly recommend
anyone who is either buying or selling a property to give her a call. She is a
very hard-working individual who is outstanding in her career.

Kim is great to work with. We live out of state and have worked with Kim for
three real estate transactions in Bozeman. She listened well and understood our
objectives. She made sure we were educated on the market and our options.
Throughout, Kim made everything as easy as possible and kept us well informed.
We highly recommend Kim to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the

You exceeded even our high expectations in every way! The fast and
efficient sale of
our new Bozeman townhome in less than 90 days was extraordinary. As a
and a realtor, and being builders ourselves, we have come to fully
appreciate the rare ultra professional service that you provided to us.
You eliminated any and all concerns with being out-of-state owners with
your Monday email updates and with your regular and
routine inspections of the property. Our thanks to you.

Kim: It was a pleasure working with you on our purchase of a vacation home
in Bozeman. We appreciated your hard work before our visit to Bozeman,
as well as after we signed the contract and flew back home. We felt very
comfortable with you handling matters for us while we were a
considerable distance away.

"I have heard more than once that working with realtors to find a home
can be frustrating and difficult. My experience working with Kim was
exactly the opposite. From day one I knew Kim would be of great help
with the purchase of my home. The search was fun and interesting indeed.
Kim knew exactly what
I was looking for and kept me up to date on what was on the market. It
was a pleasure working with Kim on the purchase of my home."
Letters are often penned to air a complaint or express some
dissatisfaction with inadequate service. However, the tone and intent of
this letter is just the opposite. I want to thank you for your
professional yet personal assistance with the recent purchase of land I
made through Absaroka Reality. I truly appreciate the fact that you were
honest and sincere during the negotiating phases. In particular, when you
were uncertain about answers to my queries, you researched the topics
avoiding the all too familiar vague, padded answers. Additionally I feel
you were dedicated to my purchase, working to ensure I was comfortable
before closing on the purchase. Needless to say, if you encounter future
customers/clients who would feel the need for references, please do not
hesitate to contact me. I am a satisfied customer, suffering no buyer's
remorse thanks to you.
We first made contact with Kim in April, 2002. Kim took action
immediately by giving us a telephone consultation, quickly followed by a
mailing of local real estate publications to educate us on Southwest
Montana market conditions. Since we were out of state buyers, Kim became
our eyes and ears in the
Gallatin Valley. Our relocation situation was still uncertain to say the
least. Nonetheless, Kim remained patient with us and continued to take
the time to educate us on market conditions and property for sale via
email, direct mail, and telephone.
When our move became more certain, Kim assessed our needs in more detail
and began to periodically send us information on properties that might
fit our needs. With four kids, two dogs, financial and other
considerations, finding the suitable property was not a simple task. Kim
sent the information via email
and digital photographs, which helped us to view the whole property,
inside and out, in a timely fashion. We were not always able to go to
Montana at our discretion to look at properties. Kim's utilization of
technology to keep us informed on a same time basis narrowed our search
without incurring unnecessary travel and lodging expenses. It also
expedited and streamlined the buying process and kept us from being
forced into to having to settle with a place to "hang our hat." Kim is
dedicated to helping her clients find the home that is
right for them and there was never any pressure nor lack of interest due
to our uncertain relocation situation.
After 2 ½ years, three trips to Bozeman and looking at countless
properties, we finally achieved our goal. Once we made an offer, Kim
continued to look out for us. The builder was framing and finishing two
bedrooms in our basement as part of the deal and Kim monitored progress,
coordinated with the lender and kept us in the loop on a regular basis
until completion. This is the mark of a real professional that truly
cares about protecting her client's interest.
Kim played a major role in helping to make our dream come true as well
as helping to make our transition as seamless as possible. Thanks again

My name is Shelly Batey. In February of 1998 my husband Dee and I
began looking for a new home and profession here in the Gallatin Valley.
By chance Dee walked into a real estate office and had the good fortune of
meeting Kim Konzak. Kim became quite a blessing to us over the next few
months as we struggled to find a home. She spent some time getting to know
us and found out what our expectations were for our new home. We spent
three months searching for the perfect home. Kim was supportive and
helpful through the whole process. She kept us informed on any new
prospects over the phone and through the Internet. She was prompt about
returning our calls and communicated with us constantly. We raced to
Bozeman several times to look at a home that had just become available,
and often it would sell within hours of the listing. Kim kept a positive
and professional attitude throughout the whole process even when Dee and I
became discouraged. She kept telling us that the perfect home was out
there for us and never gave up searching for it. In April of 2000 we found
that perfect home just as Kim said we would. We highly recommend Kim as a
Realtor. She is hard working and knowledgeable in the field of real
estate. Dee and I are most impressed with Kim's honesty and her diligence.
She is an outstanding Realtor and human being. We now have the privilege
of knowing Kim on a personal level and treasure her friendship.
Kim Konzak knows the area market, and is very
tenacious. She was able to quickly and accurately develop a sense of our
preferences and tastes. She
spent a great deal of time previewing properties she had not seen
before, kept a close watch on new listings for us, and provided us with
up-to-date information and photographs by email regularly. Her efforts
great deal of time wasted in our search while we were able to be in
Bozeman prior to our move. She made us feel as though finding the
finding the “perfect fit” for our wants, tastes, and budget was her top
priority. Not only
did we find a great realtor in Kim, but also a trusted friend.
Jim and Francile Richter
We are forever grateful to Kim for helping us find
land in Montana to build our dream retirement home on. Living out-of-state
is often difficult to pursue properties of interest. Kim's video
presentation resulted in our decision
to travel to Montana to view and to eventually purchase the desired
acreage - for an ideal custom home site. Through today's, technology, Kim
eagerly shared information about the location and answered many valuable
questions - making a long-distant land sale easily doable.
We look forward to sitting together out on the porch of our Montana home -
admiring the view of spectacular mountains - appreciating the waters of a
nearby river as it flows by and perhaps catching a glimpse of magnificent
wildlife that frequent the area.
Kim, we will never forget your professional and friendly style, as we
reflect back to the time - when living in Montana was only a "dream."
We felt very confident of your ability to keep us up to date with current real estate information 900 miles
away! We appreciated your willingness to also be patient with our 19 year old real estate scout. Thank you for all
the care and time you put into our out-of-state purchase! We couldn't have done it without you!
