In 2009, while still a full time elementary teacher, I got my real estate license. I worked part time in the real estate business until my retirement from teaching in 2014. At this time, I became a realtor full time and went on to get my Broker license in 2015. I love helping people find a home that they can enjoy for years to come and to help sellers with the marketing and sale of their homes. The Spring of 2016, Lacetta Isenberg, Sherri Judisch, and I, all brokers joined to open 1st Choice Realty in Conrad.
Dedicating over 30 years to teaching elementary school, I worked helping students become and do their best while following Golden Rule. My philosophy for helping clients buying or selling real estate follows this philosophy, too, treating others the way I would want to be treated.
With Conrad as my home for over 35 years, I love for the Golden Triangle Area and its people. My husband, family, and I love boating and enjoying Montana’s beauty. We love our children, grandchildren and fur children. I am active in the Conrad Chamber of Commerce, serving on the Chamber Board of Directors, currently as 1st Vice President. Through this I help with promoting local businesses and participate in helping to organize and work events. I support local events, the schools, am a Damsel in Defense Independent Consultant, am involved in my local church, am our pinochle group organizer, enjoy people and helping others.
I’d love to work with you with any real estate needs.
I have been in the real estate profession since 2005, specializing in North-Central Montana, the Hi-Line, and the Golden Triangle. However, as a member of United Country Real Estate, I can help you buy or sale real estate across the entire state.
You will find that I am very honest, sincere, and dedicated to my clients. I will work with you to find the best home to suit your needs or if selling is on your mind, I will market your house to find just the right buyer. I am a graduate of the REALTOR® Institute and I obtained my Broker’s license in 2015. I stay up-to-date with continuing education classes.
I am a volunteer for the Pondera Food Pantry and the Pondera Medical Center – Extended Care. I am also a member of the City/County Planning Board and the Conrad Chamber of Commerce. Community is very important to me and my goal is to help you find your place in any community within our beautiful state of Montana.
In my spare time, my husband, Craig, and I raise alpacas. They are amazing animals and we love raising them. You will fall in love with their cute faces and beautiful fiber. We sell breeding stock, raw fiber, processed fiber, yarns, and gift items, through our store BEARY SWEET ALPACA GIFT SHOP in Conrad. We’d love to talk to you about them.
Whether you’re buying or selling, put my experience to work for you. I look forward to working with you.

As for my background, I come from a long lineage of blue-collar entrepreneur, honest families that have been in the Golden Triangle area for over a century. Since my working years I have followed in a similar path dabbling in construction, automotive, and farming while later graduating college with a Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering Degree, which has led me out of state for several years. I understand the value of a hard-earned dollar and I will treat every transaction as such whether you are seeking personal or investment property. As an engineer would say.....numbers are the game, real estate is the name.
