Brian Nicodemus’ Whitefish Real Estate Newsletter September 2019

Brian Nicodemus

August has been a busy month for the Flathead Valley and Flathead Valley Real Estate. The Northwest Montana Fair was in town through the middle of the month. Rodeo, 4H, concerts, treats and rides met fair gores for a week. On Friday the 16th, Northwest Montana REALTORS sponsored the fair parade down Main Street in Kalispell. This is the second year in a row we sponsored the parade and the fourth time we have had a float. As always, we promote housing and our Charitable Foundation. This year we handed out around 5 pounds of candy and 800 frozen Otter Pops to attendees old and young.

In the last 30 days we have closed 39 properties in the Whitefish area alone. Ranging from a $134,000 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo in Kandahar to a $3.4 million six bedroom, 5 bath, 6400 sq. ft. custom home on 26 acres. We also closed 7 properties priced at $1 million or more. The market continues to be hot. Call me today with any Montana Real Estate questions or to catch your piece of northwest Montana! I love what I do and I’m always here to help! 406.250.7311.

 

New Nonprofit Collective Aims to Strengthen Local Food Systems

BY MYERS REECE // AUG 11, 2019 // FLATHEAD BEACON

Glacier FEAST is a newly formed nonprofit collective whose mission is to strengthen local food systems in the Flathead Valley.

Local growers and food advocates formed Glacier FEAST (Farmers and Eaters Advocating Sustainability Together) “with the intention of supporting the expansion of Flathead Valley’s food growing economy into a thriving community-based system that is values-based and enhances the community’s economic, nutritional, social and environmental health,” according to a press release.

“Recognizing that a fully-functioning system includes everyone (if you eat, you’re in!), Glacier FEAST, a project of FarmHands Nourish, seeks to build awareness and help connect the dots in the system by bringing folks to the table from all parts of the local food system, including: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, and recycling/recovery,” the group stated.
