"If you are looking for a REALTOR® that is trustworthy, knowledgeable about the business, has good work ethics and is very personable then look no further…Ryan and Jennie Swinney will fit the bill. I could go on and on about the qualities these two possess. I know that if we ever need REALTORS® again in the future, Ryan and Jennie will be our choice."
Deb & Rich
"Thank goodness for the Swinney Sells Team. My husband and I were selling our first home we bought together. We were doing it For Sale by Owner because the REALTOR® who was suppose to help us build/buy that first house introduced us to the builder and we never saw her again. Yes, for us, it was enough of a nightmare that we never wanted to use REALTORS® again. Then one Saturday, Jennie and Ryan Swinney saw our For Sale By Owner signs and stopped by to talk about how it was going for us. These two people were the nicest people I had ever met. They sat down and went over all the details of marketing our house and what they would do for us. They never pressured us into using a REALTOR®, and when it came to buying, if we had any doubts, they did not let us sign anything. They both have so much integrity, attention to detail, and they listened to all of our questions and concerns. When you walk into their office, you are instantly greeted with a smile! We were so impressed that when it came time to for us to buy a new home our first phone call was to the Swinney Sells Team! They walked with us every step of the way on both of our homes and when we are ready to buy or sell again it will be Ryan and Jennie Swinney that we call!"
Don & Glenda
"Thank you so much for all the work you did in selling our home and finding us a new one! You made it so easy to understand all the paperwork and your guy's professional, knowledgeable, and super friendly personalities made our experience a wonderful one. Thank you for being who you are and for letting us use the Swinney van for moving out and into our new home! That was a great benefit and we will tell all of our friends and families about the Swinney Team! You guys are definitely the best realtors in town!"

“Working with Sarah was a very pleasing experience. Brittany and I had never purchased a home before and were a little nervous about the entire process. Sarah did an excellent job of listening to what we wanted in our first home and using that info to present us homes that fit our needs and desires. I was very pleased with how easy it was to get in touch with Sarah and how flexible she was with meeting us at a property. Overall a very good experience and will definitely use her in the future!!”

"Just a short note to thank you both for all you did to get Denise and I in our new house. Also, thanks for the use of the moving van. It made a tough job a little bit easier for us."

"Action Electrical & Service, Inc."
Thank you so much for your help when it came time to sell my house. I had lived in my house for 20 years and it was a huge part of my life, making it hard to move. You and your office made the whole process so much easier. There were times that I thought I would not make all the deadlines, and your office carried me through. I found your whole process very professional. The research and time that went into drawing people from the surrounding area to come to the open house was extensive and well thought out! You were always just a phone call away and kept me current on all activity involved with the house! I really felt like you were working for ME and my best interest! We also appreciated having use of your office moving van at no cost. It saved us on moving costs, and made that whole nightmare just a little easier! We found the whole process a very pleasant experience. We were grateful for your expertise and warm friendship. Thanks so much for finding a good buyer and helping us to find a new house to fit our changing needs.
"We had a wonderful experience working with Bruce and his team. His market analysis was thorough and his listing price was perfect for our situation. Bruce gave us great advice about getting our home ready to sell. He helped us find the improvements that made our home more appealing. Bruce and his team moved quickly getting marketing material and our open house set up. He was responsive to our questions and receptive to our needs making the process very easy. Thanks to Bruce and his team our house sold very quickly. We had multiple offers in less than a week! Most important to us, Bruce was caring and considerate of our family’s needs. We always knew that he had our best interests in mind. Bruce has our utmost respect and we would highly recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home."
Jason and Becky
I’m very pleased with the service provided by Bruce Swinney and Associates and their agent Nels Wilkins. Nels listened to what I wanted in a new home and provided numerous listings that met those demands. He was easy to work with, easy to get a hold of and never pushy. He didn’t try to sell me something that was out of my price range of lacked my specified requirements. Nels is very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of buying and selling homes and brought up important subjects such as radon and future resale value that I would never have considered on my own. Nels made a nerve-racking experience as pleasant as possible and I would definitely use his services in the future.
"I would like to thank you for all the hard work you put into selling my home in East Helena. Since I married and moved away, it was continual concern and work for my husband and myself to return, keep the yard work done and ensure there were no problems that arose, as the home was vacant. Even though we had some issues that had to be resolved, you took the initiative to gather the resources to tend to them and my home sold within 2 months of being on the market. Several years back you sold my husband’s home in record time also, and we possibly may have some land for you to sell in the future. Thanks again for all of your time, effort and dedication to serving your clients. I will highly recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
"We at Golden Eagle Construction, Inc. would like to take this opportunity to say 'Thanks Bruce' for all the time and effort you have put into marketing our newly constructed homes. Your input has been invaluable to our company and it has truly been a pleasure working with you and we hope our association will continue in the future."

We are happy to extend to you the positive experience we had with real estate agents Kat & Darrell Schroeder. They were honest, professional, efficient and knowledgeable in all facets of our land real estate transaction. Our property was sold in a short period of time and closed escrow with no aggravation! We would, without hesitation, recommend Kat & Darrell to our colleagues, friends, and neighbors who are considering them as their agent for the purchase and/or sale of real estate. There’s absolutely no doubt that we would use the Schroeders’ expertise again.

My fiancé and I had the pleasure to have Jessica Jones as our realtor on the purchase of land in May of this year. Jessica was always professional and informative. Being that this was the first time we had ever purchased land or anything of that nature, Jessica was very helpful with explaining the processes involved. She was also prompt with meetings and returning calls or emails. Since my fiancé and I have worked with Jessica, I have recommended her to anyone who was looking to purchase land or a home. I have also recommended her to my soon to be in-laws to help with the sale of their home. She has given us such a wonderful experience that I will continue to recommend her to anyone for the services I have mentioned in this letter. I also look forward to working with her myself again in the future.
"After discussions with Jim, we were confident we had selected a 'Professional REALTOR®.' Jim is the best!"

"Working with Jim on the purchase of our second home was an absolute joy!! My wife and I experienced nothing but patience and dedication!! He was always positive and opened a number of opportunities for us we would never have discovered on our own! He made our transition smooth and effortless!!"
Catholic Diocese of Helena
"I have worked with Jim O’Connor on three separate property transactions: the purchase of my home in 1996, the sale of that home in 2005, and the purchase of my condo in 2006. Working with Jim in 1996 on the purchase of my house was such a pleasant experience that I made sure to call him to act for me in selling that house in 2005 and again in assisting with my search for a condo. Each time I have worked with Jim I have found him to be professional, knowledgeable and courteous. He was always willing to spend extra time and effort to find properties that fit within my criteria and to arrange his schedule to suit mine when showing me properties. He sold my house in 2005 for an amount far greater than I had expected and within a short amount of time. I highly recommend Jim to anyone seeking a real estate agent."

"Bill Rice became our REALTOR® this summer while we were wanting to find a little house in town. We successfully found one in a short matter of time. We were amazed at the team work that the REALTORS® have for each other. Bill was out of town for a little bit during that time and Debbie Jones filled in for him, taking care of us until he got back. The effort Bill puts forth for us is wonderful. We had also wanted to find some private property. Bill took us literally everywhere to help find what we wanted, only to have us change our game plan. He cheerfully found us a lot to buy in the valley, which we are currently building on as a spec. In using other REALTORS® in the past, we appreciate how easy Bill is to get a hold of. He is very thorough in all the research he provides for us. Thank you for your dependability and hard work. We look forward to a sale soon, and more to follow!!"
Jeremy and Alicia
"As a newly retired military family moving back home, we wanted a REALTOR® who would take the time to help us find our forever home. Bill took into consideration all our needs and wants and found us the perfect house. He was always available, friendly, and went out of his way to help answer all of our questions and concerns. If you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Bill Rice as your REALTOR®."

"Living in Eastern Canada and selling a house in Helena was going to be difficult... I hadn't seen the house in years. I was going to have to coordinate minor contracting bids, cleaners, movers, etc . Where do I start, what do I do? Thankfully I was introduced to Sarah Irvin. Sarah took care of everything! She never panicked and always had a plan B... just in case. She was always on the lookout on how best we could get my house sold for the price I needed. Her staff at Bruce Swinney and Assoc. were always available to provide when they were needed. They were honest in their assessment of my house and what it needed to get ready for sale. They provided the most professional price comparison and geographical information I had ever seen. My house sale was handled professionally, quickly, and with care. Sarah calmed my nerves from start to finish... with a price that satisfied me fully. Thank you Sarah Irvin!
We can't say enough about the quality of service and professionalism rendered by Kat and Darrell before, during, and after our recent purchase of land at Lakeview Ranch! They were so accommodating in meeting with us and answering our questions, always getting back to us promptly with any needed follow-ups. In both manner and actions Kat & Darrell demonstrated an integrity that merited our trust, which meant a great deal to us.
Cindy & Don
We’ve waited to write this until our house at 5230 Peaks View closed escrow. Now that it’s official, we want to extend our sincerest “Thank You” and appreciation for all the efforts Kat & Darrell Schroeder extended to sell our home. We should have hired the Schroeders in the very beginning! We were very impressed with the great service they provided. We will recommend Kat & Darrell to ANYONE looking to buy or sell a home in the Helena area!
Scott and Laura
After some half-hearted attempts at house hunting during the previous two years, Chick and I “happened” on to Kat and Darrell Schroeder at an open house one Sunday, and immediately knew that these were the people that could help us find a house quickly. They knew the area intimately, and were able to winnow out from us what we were looking for. Thanks to their tireless work and professionalism, we were able to find a house that suited our needs in a relatively short period of time, and we are very happy there. Thanks to them, too, the inspection, details of the house and its relevant permits, and the closing all went very smoothly. The use of the Swinney truck was a real winner, and saved us quite a bit of money in our move. All in all, we would highly recommend Kat and Darrell to anyone looking for real estate in the Helena area.
Monica and Chick
It’s hard to believe that nearly a year has elapsed since Kat & Darrell Schroeder listed our home and also represented us in the purchase of a larger home in East Helena. Kat & Darrell got us everything we wanted and then some! Our home sold in a very short time; then the owner of the home we were buying passed away during escrow. These facts could have made for a very harrowing real estate experience. However, Kat & Darrell anticipated problems before they came up and resolved them in a timely manner.
We will continue to tell anyone who is thinking of selling or buying that if they want the best service and the smoothest transaction GO WITH THE SCHROEDERS at Bruce Swinney & Associates.
