It’s officially Fall Season!  Before the first snow hits, here are 5 things you should do to get your home Winter ready:

Sprinkler blowout: As the winter season approaches, it’s critical to put your sprinklers to bed. Doing so prevents water freezing inside the irrigation pipes and system components which could cause cracks or damage. Blowing out your system is one of the best methods to ensure your irrigation system is completely dry.

• Clean the gutters: leaf and debris buildup can clog up gutters causing rain water and melting snow to over flow.  This overflow can cause damage to your siding, roof and foundation.  It’s best to keep these cleaned out before the snow hits!

• Inspect the roof: Fall is a great time to check your roof to be sure all the shingles are in place and in good shape before winter snow.

• Store patio furniture: Winter weather can damage your summer patio and outdoor furniture. It’s a good idea to put unused furniture, trampolines, etc. into storage.

• Sweep: Get a chimney sweep and have your heating system cleaned and maintained.  Finding out there’s a problem with your heating system in the middle of winter can be a huge problem.

• Clean dryer vent: Winter can bring more static electricity which increases the risk of igniting lint buildup.  Clean out your dryer vent to help prevent a fire hazard.

What our clients are saying:

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.


Jody is FANTASTIC!! We were first time home buyers and she was with us ever step of the way! She never made us feel silly for being new to the process. She definitely knows the area, always kept us up to date on new listings and was just a delight to work with. I would have absolutely zero hesitation recommending her to anyone. Thanks for all the hard-work Jody! We love our house!


Jody is amazing. She knows the market and was able to advise us on all our many concerns. We so appreciated how responsive she was; within minutes of submitting an online request for realtor contact on a house, she had called us. All our communications with her were like that; we never had to wait long to hear back from her. She was patient and always willing to sit down and meet with us. When we found the house we wanted, she worked tirelessly to secure it for us, and she was extremely patient with us. She was easy to communicate with, understand, and a pleasure to work with – I highly recommend Jody!


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!


Jody was awesome to work with. We were new to the area and she was helpful and knowledgeable about not only the housing market, but schools, and lenders. She worked with my work schedule for showings. Jody also stayed late to write an offer to meet our schedule. I would recommend Jody to anyone needing a realtor.
