What my clients are saying...
"My husband and I were so impressed with Jody's energy and passion! She was extremely proactive in finding us homes, which fit our criteria. When we were thinking of buying an investment property she showed us homes for comparison and what was happening in the current market. She put together a spreadsheet to evaluate the homes and whether they would be profitable or not. Her knowledge of Bozeman and the housing market was quite evident. She would dive in and provide additional research on the different homes we were interested in. Also, when we needed professional advice on different aspects of the home she provided contacts to find out pricing to repair/replace. The other thing about Jody, which I loved, was she was never pushy or made you feel pressured to buy. She was incredibly professional! Once we were in negotiations on the property we purchased she was strong in her stance and moved the contract through. I'm pretty sure she has to be one of the hardest working real estate agents out there and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend her to anyone!!" 10/2017 W.N.
"Jody was wonderful! Just a little background, We have worked with 9 realtors over the last 8 years and fired 5 of them. If you can't do your job well, we are just not in the mood to mess around. It is difficult to find a great realtor and Jody is one of those. Her response time is quick and she is very honest, so there is no wasting time. She went over everything with us so we understood the contract. She was on top of all the important dates and inspectors (that helped a lot as we were moving to a place we had never been before). We didn't just feel like she was on our side, we knew it. There were a few issues right before closing and she pushed the other agent to fix them to get the sale closed. We closed on time and I really can't wait to have her over to see what we have done with the inside!" 7/2017 D.W.
"My wife and I used Jody Savage for the sale of our home in Gallatin Gateway, MT. Jody was exceptional in all phases of our sale. We had multiple offers over asking price and sold our home in two days! Jody uses up to date modern marketing, was extremely professional and knowledgeable regarding our market and addressing our needs. She was great to work with and very responsive to any questions we had. Jody is the best in the business and we highly recommend her services!" 6/2017 G.C.
"Jody Savage is knowledgeable, trustworthy and tireless. I purchased a property this spring (2017) near Bozeman; Jody represented me as well as the seller in the transaction. Jody led me through the entire process because this was the first property I had ever purchased. HOA complications and other details made the purchase more difficult. Jody undertook a boat-load of legwork to make the transaction go smoothly. I hope to work with Jody again." 6/2017 J.D.
"Jody was recommended by a friend after I had a bad experience with a previous realtor. I was impressed by Jody's knowledge of realty in the area. She was quick to respond to any questions that the buyers had. She was also tech savvy, which is very important in a technology driven world. I would definitely use Jody as a realtor in the future." 6/2017 J.H.
"Working with Jody was a breeze!! We were buying our first home and had no idea where to start, we clicked on the link to get more information on the home and to schedule a viewing and she was the one that responded. She was willing to meet us after work and on the weekend as both my husband and I work days. She answered all of our questions completely and if she didn't know the answer she was willing to look it up and get back to us. She was willing to show us as many homes as we wanted to look at and even found some that were similar to what we were looking at to show us as well. With that, she was willing to show us the same house over and over until we made a decision. She was always right on top of it and kept all parties on track. After we found the perfect home, she offered a lot of help from contractors that she had worked with previously, to home inspectors, and lenders. Don't let that intimidate you through because it was never a problem if we wanted to look for our own. We were even more impressed as she continues to follow up now that we have closed to make sure that we are happy, to see if we have any new questions or concerns, and to make sure that our contractors are getting the work done that they need to be. If you are looking for a home I would HIGHLY recommend that you contact Jody." 1/2017 K.L.
"Jody Savage is an amazing realtor! Kristi and I were looking to sell our 3rd home in Belgrade. Selling two homes previously, we thought we knew the ropes, but were quite surprised at how challenging our 3rd home would be to sell. We couldn’t have done it without Jody. She helped us to make sure it was staged appropriately even loaning us a couch. She has an eye for what attracts buyers. Her invaluable advice, expertise, communication, and connections really streamlined the process. The 3D walkthroughs, diligent advertising as well as her amazing eye for what to show and how to show it, brought a lot of interest for a very unique home. She handled contingent offers and gave great advice and experience on many occasions. We never felt like we had trouble reaching her or getting a call back when we had questions or just to check in. She contacted us together, never leaving either one of us out of the process. In the first season of listing, Jody brought us a good offer and we accepted. We had a tough buyer’s inspection that came up with items that we did not expect and that our home inspector had missed (Big items like needing a new septic system). The buyer backed out and we worked diligently through the winter to get all repairs done for relisting in the spring. Jody never lost faith in us, even though all her hard work all year had gone down the drain. With a newly remodeled living room and all repairs complete, she relisted the home with full disclosure and receipts available to buyers. Jody got very aggressive about marketing again and brought several offers. When we accepted an offer in June, she represented the buyers and us and did a phenomenal job playing this challenging role. She made everyone involved feel that their needs were met to the best of her ability. She is amazingly professional and well educated in real estate. We've worked with several realtors in Utah and Montana and she's by far the best agent we’ve ever worked with. We would seek her out again for future real estate needs. We couldn't have been happier with her." 8/2016 R.P.
"My wife and I were first time home buyers looking to find a good deal in the 2016 Bozeman real estate market. We checked our inbox each morning for the daily email from Zillow, and after several months of searching, finally found a property we wanted to buy. We contacted Jody, and although we didn't close on that specific property (it sold very quickly), once Jody knew what we were looking for and what our price range was, she recommended several homes in the area, ultimately leading us to the house we purchased. She knows the market, is a hard worker, and her knowledge + advice proved to be extremely valuable during our buy/sell negotiations. She got us into our first house, and I feel like we actually found decent value in this frothy market because of her services. We highly recommend Jody." 10/2016 Patrick and Kelsey
"First and foremost, I'll say that I will, no doubt, use Jody to help me with any future real estate transactions. I can think of no better way to review her service other than to state that I will use her in the future and recommend her to anyone I personally know. She helped to provide me with a list of homes that fit what I was looking for in the price range I was looking for. Additionally, she helped guide me through buying my first home, always making sure I understood the process. Always going above and beyond my expectations, she worked hard to make sure that I was happy and that I was confident in my purchase. Never pushing me into a bad transaction or to needlessly compromise just to get a sale, Jody always made me feel as though she was working in my best interest, not just for a paycheck." 8/2016 V.P.
"I had never purchased a home before and was a bit daunted at the prospect. I had only had a very basic idea of what to look out for, and how to evaluate things. Jody made the process not only easy, but fun. I felt like she became my partner in house-sleuthing, and she was never afraid to answer what I felt like were dumb questions on my part. She always got back to me almost immediately, and walked me through anything I didn't understand step by step. Though I'm meticulous about details for such a big decision, I was relieved I always had her expertise right alongside me to catch anything I missed or to make suggestions. I was overseas throughout the entire process, and she facilitated many things for me, taking meetings or delivering items-- she truly went above and beyond! I would highly recommend Jody for anyone wanting to purchase a home, whether they are a seasoned veteran or a first-timer like me!" 8/2016 Arielle S
"Jody was such a joy to work with. Incredibly knowledgeable, honest, transparent and efficient. She was incredibly responsive at all hours and we couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience." 7/2016 Kelsey M
"She handled my real estate transaction very professionally. Everything went quickly and smoothly. Jody brought a great home inspector to have my new home inspected and made sure everything was taken care of after. She went above and beyond." 5/2016 Debra R
"I highly recommend Jody! Couldn't have asked for a better realtor! As a first time home buyer, she helped us every step of the way! She was a great negotiator by making sure we would be very happy with our purchase. She took care of all issues herself so the process was very stress-free!" 5/2016 Dayla B
"I first need to say I am astounded by Jody in her capacity as my real estate agent!! Her combination of local knowledge, process expertise, negotiation skills and responsiveness are top notch. I stumbled across Jody in my house search, I had left multiple messages on listings and she was the only one that IMMEDIATELY got back to me and was prompt, thorough, incredibly savvy about the real estate market and yet not the least bit pushy. She was inordinately patient with my endless questions and showed me multiple properties and also took the time to assess my property search and present "out of the box" properties to me that I wouldn't have considered, one of which I ended up buying. She is very knowledgeable of the market and presented only facts and left the decision to me, never once pushed toward one of her own listings or tried to influence me in any way but provided me all information possible. I live 300 miles away but Jody closed the gap on distance: At one point a property of great interest came up and she drove to the house to take pictures and send them to me for me to better assess the opportunity. She blew me away with her efficiency and expertise with the buying/paperwork process and gave me clear sighted direction of timelines and to-do list. When I made an offer she was diligent and responsive, incredibly efficient with the e-signing of paperwork and tough yet fair and even keel during the negotiation process. She had excellent recommendations on inspection and virtually every other service imaginable (contractors, handy man, designer, etc.) While under contract, Jody was responsive and accessible and accommodated me with multiple visits to the house. On top of her top notch service and professionalism, she is also a wonderful human being and showed up with a bottle of wine and set of glasses as a house warming present once I purchased the property. I simply cannot say enough about Jody, anyone lucky enough to gain her representation will be thrilled." 3/2016 Christie G.
"Jody is on point every step of the way! Not only did she closely support us, but she actually found our dream home, too. She listened closely to our priorities and added a home for us to view which wasn't on our list - the one that became our #1! We did not have an easy situation as we were selling our home in another state at the same time (and I lost my job in the middle of it all). Jody stuck with us and was able to negotiate to get us the house we wanted for the right price. Jody went above and beyond to support us on all ends. You will also appreciated her guidance and knowledge about all things real estate! It's scary when you are making a big financial commitment and she always put us at ease by clearly explaining the process and our options. You won't regret working with Jody!!!" 1/2016 Melissa T.
"My husband and I have, at this point, conducted two purchases and a sale with Jody and she is AMAZING! There was never a question in our minds during any of our real estate transactions that we were a priority. Her knowledge and understanding of the business is instantly obvious and she is very professional in handling every aspect of the buy/sell. When we experienced a serious contract ending issue with a buyer Jody was all-in, contacting every single party who was even a little involved, until everything was straightened out and our sale was upright and active again. She was also very personally invested in what was important to us - like our desire for a very specific layout in a very specific area for our growing family. Jody was always available for our questions and had several reputable contacts/business recommendations to help address any concerns (i.e. painters, glass and window companies, exterminators, handymen....). We would highly recommend Jody to anyone buying or selling and will most definitely use her for any future real estate deals." 1/2016 Cassie B.
"Jody is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to investing in a home. She knows many of the contractors, so if there is an issue that you would like a professional to re-evaluate after the general inspection, she has references who are highly recommended through some of her other buyers/sellers, as well as ones she has used for her own home. She makes herself as available as possible to help keep the ball rolling toward closing, and checks in after the sale." 1/2016 M. D.
"Jody was my agent for a recent home purchase. I would definitely choose her again if I purchased or sold another home in Bozeman. She is easy to work with, smart, very efficient and she got back to me right away on all questions. She made purchasing an older home easy and guided me through the timeline of tasks without a problem. I am out of state for a few more months and she has really been a phenomenal asset. She went to the house for me and helped get everything completed. You will be very satisfied if you choose Jody to as your real estate agent!!" 9/2015 Jen Y.
"Being a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and was very hesitant in general. I found Jody by contacting her about a place on Zillow and things couldn't have worked out better. As soon as I told her what I wanted and my price range, we didn't waste any time with viewing places and I even had a couple of random requests that she handled with ease. Jody is a real go getter and that is what I liked most about her, she was quick to respond and explained the real estate process to me even when I would question things. After my closing date I have stayed in contact with Jody and she has even come over and helped with my place. When the time comes to sell or buy a new place, Jody will be the first person I call and she is my number one recommendation." 8/2015 Justin T.
"Jody helped us list and sell our home and she did a phenomenal job! We interviewed 3 other listing agents and she stood out in terms of her vision for the house (she walked us through some very well thought ideas for staging) and price point (she told us to list 40k higher than the other agents were recommending). It really seemed to us that she was excited about helping us sell our house. We chose her as our agent and we're so glad we did! With a little staging help from Jody our house looked beautiful, we received multiple offers and even sold above asking! Jody was there every step of the way to answer questions, negotiate and otherwise help us through the process. I can't recommend her enough. If you are looking for an honest, hard-working agent look no further!" 7/2015 B.T.
"Jody was wonderful to work with! She was very prompt in getting us in to see properties and was very knowledgeable about the market and the area. I felt like she was by my side and helped me through everything from negotiating prices to having immediate suggestions on any obstacle I came up against. I have a very hectic schedule and she went above and beyond to accommodate this. She very easy to talk to which is Important as I was able to discuss my concerns with her openly. Jody was a delight to work with and I highly recommend her." 7/2015 Lisa P.
"Jody works hard from the beginning to the end of our home sale. She met with us in a timely manner and had our home listed the same day. She has a 3D tour program which worked well for us since the buyers were from out of state and did not physically see the property. She is professional and has great negotiations skills. We were very pleased with her performance and would highly recommend her. Thanks Jody!" 7/2015 K.R.
"Bozeman real estate was intimidating at first, but Jody masterfully helped us through the process. Ever the buyer's advocate, she negotiated on our behalf, determined the condition of property items the inspector could not, and protected our earnest money. Upon closing, we had a excellent understanding of what we were buying and an accurate appreciation of the home's value. She is prompt, reliable, & personable. I would highly recommend her to family & friends." 5/2015 Laura G.
"Jody was very professional; she was responsive to questions/concerns and evolving needs, did what she said she would do, and provided the whole gamut of services with integrity and a "get it done right" attitude. It was a pleasure to work with Jody and she provided us a positive real estate experience." 4/2015 Julie G.
"Jody was amazing. She went above and beyond to help us with every detail from finding the right condo to closing in record time so we could be moved without having to extend an apartment rental lease. Jody was prompt with responses to emails and all communications between the seller and us. We truly appreciated her listening and addressing our needs in a new home, and her dedication to making them a reality." 4/2015 Debbie & Tod
"We had a great experience with Jody as our realtor. She was extremely helpful, caring, and listened to our needs and wants. She stuck with us through a long process with the bank and kept us very informed along the way. Jody worked extremely hard for us and there was no lag between us asking questions and getting us answers. We really recommend Jody and have nothing but positive reviews of her effort, knowledge, and work!" 3/2015 Sarah M.
"Jody is one amazing realtor and person! We wouldn't be in our new home without her expertise, knowledge of the area, and willingness to help in every way she could. She listened to our requests, always stayed in communication, helping us with upgrades, including appliances and the design and coordination of our new fireplace and shower. Awesome results! Jody exceeded our expectations in every conceivable way. Without exception, we recommend Jody for your real estate needs.
SHE IS SIMPLY THE BEST!" 10/2014 Karen & John K.
"We were given Heart of Montana Realty as a real estate office through a new co-worker and had the luck of working with Jody. She was fantastic. She helped us get to know the area which allowed us to narrow our search. She was willing to drive to whatever property we wanted to see and knew about each of the areas and what some of the positives and negatives to each were. Once we found a property, she was able to help us navigate the negotiation process and help us get a great deal on our home. Because we were out of state, she made sure all of our inspections were done on time and she went so far as to meet each person at the property so she could report back to us what the results were. Not only was she great on the real estate side of things, but she is a great person, easy to be around and easy to talk to. She made the house hunting experience enjoyable!" 5/2014 Marci T.
"Jody did a great job helping us find and close on our first home! She is knowledgeable of the Bozeman/Belgrade area and the trends of the market. She was efficient in answering our hundreds of questions thoroughly and promptly. It was a pleasure working with such a professional!" Ashley H.
"Jody was on top of everything, understanding what we wanted to buy, the search, the negation, documentation, communication, all the way through the closing...and her skills were needed at all of the phases. Could not have been more pleased." Wes S.
"We had a great time working with Jody, she made the home buying process easy! She is great at explaining all the different steps that happen and setting us up for success throughout the process." Jessica P.
"Jody is an incredible professional. She is extremely trustworthy and knowledgeable in her area of expertise. Jody truly went above and beyond to coordinate not only the sale but, the repairs and cleaning of the property as well. I live out of town and would not have been able to sell my townhouse without her. She provided expert real estate advice while listing and selling my property for more money than I was hoping for. Not only did I make more money than I thought I would, the process was completed very quickly. Jody was always available and timely in her responses and kept in contact with me throughout the entire process. I would absolutely recommend Jody to anyone looking for a good real estate professional. I only wish we still lived in the same town so she could find my next property!" Hilary L.
"My wife and I loved working with Jody. She is incredibly sharp and guided us through the entire purchasing process, start to finish, with patience and kindness. She would often bring things to our attention that we hadn't even considered, prepared us to make good decisions and we never felt pressured at any point. Now we own a nice lot and are looking forward to building. If you're in the market to buy or sell, give Jody a call!" Scott M.
