I'M NOT SURE if downtown Missoula is booming, but it sure is building. Construction is all around the downtown area with investors betting that owning space in Missoula is going to pay off.

I'm calling it a wild patch because it was free to be picked by any and all in the neighborhood. My dad was a big fan of that rhubarb and my mother was challenged t...

APPARENTLY, sometimes even offering your services for free isn't enough. I'm thinking out loud about a report by the National Association of Realtors that states that during November 2011, just 60 percent of the people who purchased a home were represented by an agent. Despite the fact a buyer's ...

CONGRATULATIONS to all of you - it appears your efforts are paying off. According to the most recent poll taken by Gallop Polls, the perceived ethics of real estate agents is at its highest level in many years.  While agents' ethics still have relatively low ratings, numbers in the most recent po...

IN MONTANA, the return of wolves has been a controversial issue. As in the past, the last thing ranchers want to see on the landscape is a wolf. But apparently, the wolves have more to fear than ranchers. According to a report in the Missoulian, two wolves that had been collared in the past by wi...
