Brian Nicodemus’ Whitefish Real Estate October Newsletter

Brian Nicodemus

I’ve had the pleasure of living in the Flathead Valley since 1989. I am amazed every day by the beauty of its scenery and the heart of its people. Not to mention the endless possibilities of outdoor recreation right out your door. During my 15 years in real estate I’ve made many great friends and have been fortunate enough to sell some wonderful properties. The true reward for me is the smile on my customers face when they achieve their goals. Give me a call or email me today so I can help you catch your special piece of Montana!
