Since 1983, RE/MAX Whitefi sh has been helping buyers and sellers in the Flathead Valley achieve their real estate goals. In 2019, RE/MAX Whitefi sh earned the honor of being the #1 highest producing single RE/MAX Offi ce in all of Montana; and with 27 agents, a full-time offi ce manager, dedicated marketing staff, access to the best tech tools available in the business and even a professional photographer specializing in drone photography on the roster, it’s not hard to see why. 

CEO / Broker Monte Gilman’s real estate involvement began with property management in 1996 and soon it became clear that real estate sales are what really interested him. Monte came to RE/MAX Whitefish in his fifth year as a Realtor and third year as a Broker. In 2006, Monte and his then business partner, Alan Elm became Broker/Owners of RE/MAX Whitefi sh and began recruiting the area’s top real estate agents and brokers to join the team. Their efforts earned them the distinction of 2008’s Broker/Owners of the Year award from RE/MAX Pacifi c Northwest. In 2019 Monte has become the sole owner of RE/MAX Whitefi sh and is up for the challenge, he loves his job and spends about half his time representing buyers and sellers and the other half making sure the company runs smoothly and recruiting as well as retention.
