We chose to talk to Jody about representing us in selling our home for one primary reason… her website. I researched realtor websites in Bozeman and reached the conclusion that I liked hers the best – clean, simple to use, great photography, and the virtual tours really appealed to me. When we met with her, it was obvious that she offered so much more than just a great website. She was very knowledgeable of our specific area and homes that have sold and those currently on the market. She had realistic ideas on pricing and great recommendations on staging our house. And everything was done so quickly… our house was on the market within 36 hours complete with photography and the virtual tour.
Shortly after it was listed, another realtor was showing the home next door. He came over to ask a quick question, saw Jody’s sign out front, and said “I see you hired the selling machine”. Well, I took that as confirmation that we had made the right choice… I have nothing but positives to report about how she handled negotiations and the advice that she gave us along the way. She responds immediately (I like early risers). I love her energy. We were pleased with the outcome. We highly recommend her.
We were referred to Jody Savage by our out of state selling broker and we could not have done any better ourselves. Jody was amazing from when she first met my wife to the day she handed us the keys to our new home. My wife came into Bozeman with a list of houses that she had viewed online. Jody worked with that list and patiently helped us navigate the Bozeman real estate market. When we decided on the home that we wanted, Jody worked with us to make a sensible bid while also making sure we didn’t lose the deal. Jody has an amazing love and knowledge of Bozeman. She is very experienced, responsive, and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with every aspect of our home buying experience.
Jody is quite literally the best real estate agent that my wife and I have ever worked with. Knowledgeable, down to earth, a great communicator, disciplined, and unfailingly trustworthy. She was unflagging in her efforts to find us the best possible match for our needs and was unflinchingly honest about what would work and would not work with each property, always putting our interests paramount above all else. I’d recommend her to anyone – and already have.
Jody is THE BEST! So friendly, knowledgeable, proactive, tech savvy, flexible, hardworking, and with a great network of local contractors, inspectors, etc… Jody made our house buying experience not only a breeze but a pleasure. First time homebuyers? Jody figured out our tastes and what was important to us quickly while sharing her depth of real estate experience. Relocating to Bozeman and buying remotely? No problem! Jody generously spent an entire day giving us the lay of the land of Bozeman neighborhoods, and then did virtual FaceTime viewings and sent video walk throughs until we found the right place. Competitive market? Jody helped us get selected in a multiple bidder scenario at the right price. Finished the job and got us to close on time with positive feelings between buyer and seller? Yup! She basically managed the entire inspection process through her network while we were remote, and talked us through every step of the way to close, no stress. Icing on the cake – she even helped us arrange contractors and checked in on the home for us for two weeks after we closed before we arrived in town. When the time comes to sell our house we will definitely be using Jody!
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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!!
We found Jody via online reviews and could not be happier with our choice. Throughout our long distance home-buying process she was knowledgeable about the market, a great negotiator and, most importantly, extremely responsive. She was available to show us houses when we came into town (fairly last minute) and always gave an informed perspective without swaying our priorities. We will most certainly be calling her for any of our subsequent real estate needs. Thanks, Jody!
I was a first time home buyer. Jody was incredibly patient as I shopped around Bozeman (quite a bit!), and had some excellent insights into the real estate process. Jody was extremely responsive and was constantly available to answer questions or gain access to a property for showing. When my condo came up, she was on top of everything – contracts, dates, inspection, and everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend Jody to anyone searching for a property in the greater Gallatin area!
I feel so lucky to have found Jody and that she was able to work with me on my recent home purchase. While this is my fourth home purchase, this is my first time utilizing Jody’s services. By and far, she is the most knowledgeable and helpful agent I have ever experienced. Time and time again, she surprised me with her level of care for my best interests and her level of participation in the process. Jody went above and beyond to help me navigate the particulars of the home inspection and subsequent repairs that followed prior the closing. She was available in ways I have never experienced with any other agent in the home buying process. Jody knows the community and the builders well and listened closely to my desires which saved time and energy throughout the process. I appreciated that Jody was thorough in her knowledge and would make sure that I had all the information I needed to make an informed decision, while simultaneously not feeling any sales pressure from her whatsoever. My highest compliment is that I have already referred two close friends to Jody and feel confident that they are in good hands through what can be a stressful process of home buying.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
