Merle has shown us multiple properties, all at the convenience of our busy schedule. He has been very respectful of the types of homes we wanted to see and did not try and show us anything that we were not interested in. He is currently helping us navigate buying a short sale home. He has been nothing but up front with information and guidance through the process. We are eagerly awating the day we get to move in to our new home!
Merle Unrue is a very professional, courteous and knowledgeable agent. He helped me sell my father’s house after my father passed away. I live in California and I was concerned about the distance. Merle made me feel as though I lived there. He handled everything and more. It was all taken care of by e-mail and phone.
My father’s land property is closing in 2 weeks thanks to Merle. The people who bought it are from Seattle, WA. It is all being taken care of by e-mail and phone as well.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Hamilton, MT.
As a local attorney, I have been working with Merle and Montana Westgate for over 10 years. Merle's experience, knowledge of the Bitterroot Valley, and integrity make him my choice for either a Buyer's agent or a Seller's agent every time. As a Buyer's agent he is responsive, practical and never pushy. As a Seller's agent, he provides realistic guidance in setting asking price, excellent advice on property condition and how to maximize that price and he stays with the Seller from listing to closing. I never have to wait for a return call from Merle, never have to wonder "where is my agent" when I have properties listed with him. Clients I refer to him are universally pleased and impressed with the work he does on their behalf.
