Putting creativity and knowledge to work for you!
Kelley Carter Halle is a Montana native, born and raised in Sheridan, Montana. Kelley has been happy to call the Gallatin Valley home since 1979, and has lived just outside of Churchill since 1995. Kelley holds a degree in business management and administration from Montana State University, has been selling real estate for 11 years, and has 14 years of experience as a paralegal, and 7 years of experience as a business intermediary. Kelley has been awarded the ABR designation (Accredited Buyer Representative) by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council of the National Association of Realtors, and has been awarded the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Designation by the Council of Residential Specialists. Kelley was awarded the Leading Edge Society award for sales in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Active in the community and church, Kelley's goal is to bring honest, thorough, and active representation to both buyers and sellers in Churchill, Amsterdam, Manhattan, and the rest of the western Gallatin Valley. A stickler for detail and organization, Kelley will go the extra mile to sell your home, or to find your dream home or building site.
Kelley and her husband, Mark, have been the general contractors on the two homes they have built. When Kelley's not in the office or showing property, you can likely find her hiking, 4-wheeling and camping in the beautiful mountains of Montana, skiing at Bridger Bowl or Big Sky, or playing with her new grandson, Lyle!

"From day one, Kelley keeps in contact regarding new listings, follow ups, revisits, whatever. She is efficient, honest, and does her homework prior to the showings. It took us about a year and Kelley wad there with us the whole way!"
"Kelley is an amazing real estate agent. My best friend and I were buying a house together, and from the moment we met her she made the home buying process fun. She answered all of our questions, worked closely with both of us, and answered all of our questions. (No matter how stupid they were). It was great to know that she was always on our side, especially with our first home. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!"
"Kelley not only helped us sell the home we built, in this wonderful little community of Churchill, she helped us buy our lot in 2006! She was there every step of the way with ideas and support from how to stage our home, to guidance regarding open houses, etc. Kelley lives in the Churchill/Amsterdam community and has an intimate knowledge of properties and opportunities that aren't always listed on the internet or ML, both here and in the surrounding Gallatin County. I highly recommend Kelley for all of your real estate needs whether you're in the market for a lot, acreage, or the home of your dreams."
Alan & Diane Grant
"When we listed our condo with Kelley, we really did not know what to expect. She helped us price it right, and it sold after being on the market for one day! She was willing to show us houses and do paperwork for everything, around our hectic schedule no matter what time of day. She made the whole process of selling very easy. We would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home."
Jason Ebert & Amanda Chatriand
"In 2012 Kelley worked as our listing agent in the sale of our home, and she also was our buyer’s agent in the purchase of property. Kelley is one of the most organized and hard-working people I know. She has outstanding communication skills and expansive knowledge of the local real estate industry. Kelley handled our transactions in an extremely efficient manner and I cannot say enough about how impressive her work performance has been. She always keeps her clients up-to-date and works tirelessly to achieve positive outcomes. I would give Kelley Halle my highest recommendation to anyone needing a real estate agent."
"As first time home buyers we had no idea what the process of purchasing a home would be like. Kelley Halle was the perfect realtor for us. She lead us to the right banker, simply and clearly explained the process and answered our many questions in a way that we could easily understand. Through the process we hit many hurdles that to us looked like the end of the road. Kelley encouraged us and advised us on how to keep pressing forward in the purchasing process. With her advice we were able to clear those hurdles. In the end we got the home we have always dreamed of. We will forever be thankful for the calm, professional leading that we experienced with Kelley Halle."
Terry & Callie Dykman
" Right from the beginning, you were someone we knew we could trust to act in our best interest. You were patient with us as we went from house to house, which was very good as we were trying to get a feel for the market as first time home buyers. We so appreciated your thorough research for each situation we went through, and that you were always available to meet with us promptly. To top off your great service during the process, you also followed through after the closing to make sure everything was taken care of and squared away. Thank you, Kelley, for being a great real estate agent and friend to us! We really do appreciate it!"
David Macur and Meghan Balian (soon to be Mr. and Mrs.!)
"After several years of searching for a new home, we were referred to Kelley Halle in the Gallatin Valley as a buyer's agent. It was our lucky day! Not only has Kelley been professional from day one working to find us just the right home, but she always made us feel that she was working FOR us and not just trying to make a sale. She diligently searched new listings as they came on the market and kept us apprised of anything in which we might remotely have an interest. She walked us through each step of the purchase process and even researched and supplied us with information on city services, permits, etc. - "above and beyond" is her way of doing business. We would not hesitate to recommend Kelley to any buyer. Due to her integrity and dependability, we have no doubt that a seller would also do well to list with her. It was a lucky day, indeed, for us to find someone as enthusiastic and genuinely motivated as Kelley Halle."
Tom & Amy Rumbaugh
"Kelley was referred to me by a trusted friend for a multitude of good reasons: she is the ultimate professional representing her industry with the highest of standards, her expertise crosses all the fields necessary to understand and navigate the processes involved, and she is respectful of all the relevant parties. Kelley’s enthusiasm, unwavering support and stellar customer service made it easier for her to complete the sale without compromising integrity, while her warm style and personal attention throughout provided the comfort needed to successfully negotiate the course. With pleasure, I would strongly recommend Kelley to serve as the representative responsible for either the buyer or seller."
Dennis J. Cwidak, a very happy homeowner, Bozeman
"No other realtor we have worked with has done such a thorough job nor been so dedicated to us. We just want you to know how much we appreciate it. We wish all realtors were like you!"
Tom & Georgette Plaugher, West Virginia
"We want to say a Big Thank You to Kelley for all her help and patience shown us over a period of time in not only locating the perfect property, but also helping in finding a lender. Kelley kept us informed, up to date on listings, new and old, and was efficient in answering all our questions. We would recommend Kelley to anyone needing an agent."
Dan, Janet & Kace Doornbos
"We simply wanted to recognize your skill and experience in selecting homes that you knew from our conversations would be suitable and meet our needs. From memory, we think you showed us a dozen or so and it was never too much trouble to meet with us at our convenience and listen carefully to our feedback. Each home you showed us could have "done the job" so to speak, but you were amazingly patient and we now find ourselves in the most fabulous home, which is perfect for us and the family. You were also highly professional in helping us through the inevitable maze of finance and the legalities and nuances required to finalize the purchase. Your attention to detail was so welcome and we can only say 'thank you'."
Malcolm and Mandy Fitzsimmons
"We recently purchased a horse property near Belgrade. Not only did Kelley Halle find the property for us, she worked very professionally for us through the entire process. Since we are not from the area, we had to do a lot of things via e-mail and fax, and found that Kelley handled this timely and accurately. We also had to rely on her advice and assistance for the home inspection, as well as for local contacts for financing and insurance. We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Bozeman area." Sincerely, Stan and Trish Dowton
"Thank you so much for your experience and persistence in our home search, we are so excited to be homeowners again even if our list of projects is already growing. If we are ever in search of property again we won't hesitate to let you know. It was great working with you."
Tyler & Lynn Gray
"It took awhile for the exact property to become available, and when it did you found it. Thank you for the quick follow up with all my questions and for coordinating all the communications with the bankers and brokers. I was only in town for a few days and was able to focus on enjoying the property."
Randy Ungersma - Escondido, California
"From the first time we called you to ask if you could show us the property, you gave us outstanding service, promptly keeping every appointment we made and doing everything you said you would do. . . . you did the necessary research and were able to guide the process with great skill and professionalism, as evidenced by the positive comments from the FHA representatives themselves, as well as by our own entire satisfaction. It is hard to believe that we accomplished what we did in just one month's time, largely thanks to your diligence in seeing the transaction through. It was a pleasure working with you and we have the feeling that we have gained a new friend along with our new home. Thanks for everything."
Keith & Nancy Chrisman
"We tried to sell our house by ourselves and when we looked into all the paperwork it was a no brainer to go with an agent. . . We had to sell it quickly in order to buy the new house and we sold it in three days. We were so excited to have sold our house in three days when we knew the market wasn’t moving. Some of the advantages were that our house had more exposure - big time exposure than if we listed it on our own. We also felt that Kelley was fair; she provided a good valuation of what was selling and being bought. She helped us find a balance and she was better at telling us what we needed to do. Working with an agent, you know that all the t’s are crossed and the I’s are dotted. You know they get it all done."
Tim and Jana Van Dam, Manhattan
"We are quite impressed and pleased with the job that you have done as our realtor. . . It's been like night and day between you and our first listing agent."
Tim & Tonya Shonkwiler
"We are just loving our home. . . We owe you such a huge thank you that words cannot even express how grateful we are to you. You didn't ever give up on us and you helped see us through to the end. Most people would have totally given up on us and left us to search on our own. We are just so lucky that you are the person that you are and you had faith that our dream would come true (some times even when we didn't believe anymore)!! . . . There is no way we could have done this without you. Prudential is lucky to have you representing their name. But we would like for them to change your title to Home Dream Achiever!!"
Chuck & Stacey Rasnick
"Kelley was the listing agent for our Mother's house and she worked very hard to sell it for us. . . She was very thorough, efficient, professional and always available throughout the whole process. We felt that she did an excellent job for us and highly recommend her when you want an agent to get the job done well and right, whether you are selling or buying."
"Thanks, Kelley, for making my purchase of a new home in Bozeman go so smoothly. I have been thru numerous buys and sells and I can say that I have never had the pleasure of working with somebody so detailed and making sure everything was in order at the time of closing. Your were great to work with and met all my needs."
"Please use us as a reference any time . . . Thank you especially for always being available and answering the many questions of a novice to real estate sales. You are much appreciated, and your work for us was invaluable!"
Chip & Nancy Drusch
"As Manager for Golf Savings Bank, Home Loan Division, I was impressed with Kelley's follow through and keeping on top of all new listings. I would get weekly reports of new listings we might be interested in and at times she would Preview them to make sure they might be a fit. She was always very accommodating and prompt when we would meet to look at Potential Homes. I highly recommend her and for those that live out of state I would feel confident knowing she would find the home that fits your needs."
"Our home buying experience was exceptional due to the efforts of Kelley Halle. . . . She was very efficient about answering all our questions, always on time and available seven days a week to fit our schedule. . . . We would highly recommend Kelley to anyone who is buying or selling a home."
Dale & Justine Ebert
". . . thank you for all that you did for me while you served as my listing agent and also as my buyers agent. You kept me informed, worked very hard with the buyer and seller and made the process as easy as it could possibly be. I would highly recommend your services as a real estate agent to anyone that is buying or selling a house. You truly went above and beyond at times and made difficult situations workable and manageable. Again thank you for your excellent service and I hope to work with you again if the need arises."
H. Tom Petroff
" . . we are indebted to you for your good help and patience. We bought at the right time . . . be assured in visiting with anyone about how we came to be here, your good name always comes up."
Ross & Deb Buckingham
"Kelley is awesome- her creativity and knowledge got our house sold in one month! She kept us informed every step of the way and went the extra mile to keep in touch with me in AZ and my husband in Bozeman. Kelley is on top of what the market is doing and will get your house sold. We truly had a wonderful experience in very bad market times. We would recommend Kelley to anyone and everyone!"
Bob & Pat Crocker
"Thanks for your help in selling our house. We appreciated the informative and professional handling of the sale of our home."
