My passion for real estate is fueled by my intense love for the mountains I live, work and recreate in. Not only do I have a firm grasp of the functional elements involved in working as a Realtor in today’s real estate market I am also sensitive to the emotional complexities of buying and selling real estate in the state of Montana.
Believing the home is the foundation for a happy and fulfilling life I will work relentlessly in my efforts to guide homebuyers in their search for properties that best fit their unique needs and desires.
I bring 16 years of experience and knowledge of the listing, marketing, negotiating and closing process to the table and I am skilled at helping sellers determine current market value for their property. I will be there with you every step of the way if the decision to sell has been made.
Having spent several years before my career as a Realtor working in the forestry industry coupled with being a cross country mountain runner and backcountry explorer, one of my favorite things to do as a Realtor is cruising large tracts of land in western Montana. My knowledge of tree species, weed identification, general forest health, and boundary line identification has been constructive for both buyers and sellers.
Combining my love of the wild country, the amazing community in which I live and the powerful connections I have made helping people establish new roots is what keeps me excited and motivated to work hard for each client.
I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions you have about the real estate market, investment property, the 1st time home buying process, and/or lenders in our community. You will have my undivided attention and expertise when your curiosity in real estate peaks. As soon as you are ready to move forward with the decision to buy or sell in western Montana, I’ll be here ready to work for you.
"Colleen Alber was my Agent for nearly 2 years in my search for the perfect place. She was always available when I periodically showed up in Missoula and my interests were her interests. She respected the sellers and the homes we went into and had a thorough and professional knowledge of the business. My lender and I both relied on her and the closing process could not have been easier. Colleen has all the qualities you hope to find in an agent, plus she's a great person."

"Colleen was able to interpret paperwork for me when I felt emotionally overwhelmed with the transactions. Very clear and explains both perspectives for seller and buyer. Fair, not cutthroat, and honest. Good vibes w Colleen!"
-Charlotte, Missoula homeowner
"I've dealt with a lot of Realtors in my career, and Colleen's handling of our transaction was the best I've ever dealt with. Calm, professional, and thorough."
