What Our Clients Say About Hart Real Estate Solutions

What Our Clients Say About Hart Real Estate Solutions

 "It is one thing to be friendly, easy going and relaxed but quite another to do all that while also being highly efficient, professional and punctual. Tim was all that for us."

"As a family moving to the Bozeman area from out of state we knew we needed an especially attentive and patient real estate agent. Tim Hart was all that and more. Tim was referred to us by our daughter who lives in the area and had worked with him previously. We met with Tim initially by phone. He listened attentively and kept in close touch but never pressured us. The steady stream of home listings he provided gave us a good sense of what was available and for how much.

Our first in person meeting with Tim went very smoothly. His relaxed yet organized approach was very reassuring. With his help we narrowed our search to 4 homes and set a date to look at them. Tim was able to fill us in on the nuances of each home and area. In most cases he anticipated our questions and even called our attention to some issues we hadn't considered. We weren't under any pressure to buy but found a house both of us loved immediately. Tim created a video walkthrough for us to help with our decision.

Over the next couple of days we pondered the situation followed by a phone meeting with Tim. He provided great strategic advice on making a successful offer. After returning home we spotted another home that had just hit the market that also had many of the features we were seeking. On short notice Tim did a live video walkthrough of the new listing including the exterior and surrounding neighborhood. With that reassurance we were ready to make an offer on our original favorite. We couldn't be happier with our choice or his assistance.

Once the offer was accepted Tim really went to work for us. He organized the inspection, referred us to a local bank and connected us with local contractors to line up some pre-move-in improvements. He even checked on some work that was mandated by the inspection. It is hard to imagine a long distance transaction going any smoother. With his assistance the closing went off without a hitch and our modifications are nearing completion.

Tim was just a pleasure to work with. He very quickly put us at ease and it was like working with an old friend even though we had only just met in person. He provided great strategic advice that really paid off for us. It is one thing to be friendly, easy going and relaxed but quite another to do all that while also being highly efficient, professional and punctual. Tim was all that for us. If we ever have another real estate transaction in the Bozeman area we would work with Tim again without question."

~Irwin and Heidi


 "Tim’s knowledge of the area and ability to communicate were both very impressive."

"Recently my wife Catherine and I purchased a home in the Bozeman area. Tim Hart and his team were our real estate representatives. Our family has been coming up to Montana for several years. We were looking for a home that would serve as a vacation home and also possibly as a permanent home for our family in the future. In the past we rented homes for our family vacations and I thought I was familiar with the area. This all changed when I met Tim Hart. Tim’s knowledge of the area and ability to communicate were both very impressive. Tim has the ability to get to the heart of the matter quickly. Tim was always willing to be candid. He was always willing to examine the pros and cons of each home we were interested in.

Because we live out of state, it was important for us to be able to closely communicate and receive documents via email and text. Before I could ask, Tim created an internet “Google Drive” account. This allowed Tim, Catherine and I to quickly examine documents and photographs. This is exactly what I was intending to do. Throughout the entire process, it seemed Tim was always one step ahead. He is also one of those people who is intensely organized. He never missed even the smallest detail of the transaction. We saw several homes. There were offers and counter offers. Also as is common in real estate purchases, there were contingencies based on financing and inspections. Tim and his team were on top of every detail. Tim, Tracy and Lori are the part of the team I dealt with. They are all professional problem solvers. They are professionals you can count on. I never had to wait for a call, text or email to be returned. Tim doesn’t want there to be any surprises. When there was a potential issue Tim didn’t minimize it. He always acted with the highest level of integrity and treated us with the highest level of respect. To that end, Tim was always very upfront about potential problems if any.

Our transaction went very well. When there were questions from either side, Tim was always available to assist. Tim’s incredible team, his knowledge of the area, his professional attitude and attention to detail were the driving forces behind our positive experience. I highly recommend Tim Hart Real Estate Solutions."​

 "His time with us was both productive and pleasant."

"What a pleasure it was to find our new home site in Montana with Tim Hart!

As out of state buyers, not quite familiar with the area, Tim’s knowledge helped us narrow our search so we did not spend time looking at listings that did not meet our needs.  His time with us was both productive and pleasant.

Tim was thorough and he went above and beyond expectations to make sure we had the opportunity to find the right place for us!

His attention to detail in providing us not only the information on the listings, but references for other professionals gave us resources for engineering, lending and legal review.

Tim and Hart’s transaction coordinator, Tracy Dardis, also provided comprehensive follow-up all the way to closing so that the details were taken care of before deadlines. 

We would highly recommend Tim and his firm to anyone wanting a realtor who does not just care about their own listings, but cares about what you want, who will listen, and who will spend time with you!

Thanks Tim - for everything!"

~Ron & Sandy 


 "Rest assured, there is NO ONE else I would choose to use in the Gallatin Valley for my real estate needs."

"Lori Hart and Hart Real Estate could not have done a better job representing my real estate interests!  Lori maintains the highest degree of integrity while providing prompt and clear communication as well as providing solutions and guidance as hurdles and challenges were met.

Our real estate goal was not clearly established when we first signed on Lori as our realtor.  Throughout the process, Lori was able to narrow our focus and goals until we were able to pin point with accuracy our desired path.  Once we were pointed in the right direction, the technological tools Hart Real Estate utilizes made searching for properties a cinch (not to mention daily updates as new properties came on the market).

In the past, my husband and I have been disappointed (at best) and outraged (worse) with the experience we've had with other real estate agents and brokers.  NOT SO with Hart Real Estate.  Rest assured, there is NO ONE else I would choose to use in the Gallatin Valley for my real estate needs.  You can be assured of the highest level of service, communication and accuracy throughout your real estate transaction.   

Thank you Lori and the team at Hart Real Estate!"

~Jaime 


 "They took the time to answer our questions and address our concerns with respect and genuine care for us as people."

"We simply cannot recommend Tim and Lori highly enough. As first time home buyers, we could have easily gotten overwhelmed with the busy Bozeman market. Tim and Lori walked us through each step. They took the time to answer our questions and address our concerns with respect and genuine care for us as people. We never felt rushed, pushed, or belittled, even though we bought a relatively inexpensive home and knew nothing about the process when we started. 

They were on top of things the whole way. We knew the home we were interested in would sell quickly and they were able to show it to us within a few hours of our call. They also worked over the holiday weekend with little notice to get our offer in. When our inspection revealed a significant repair that needed to happen, they made sure to keep things moving along and to keep us updated. Every time we interacted with them and their staff, we noticed how knowledgeable they are and how gracious they are in sharing their knowledge. 

In short, they are competent and caring. They provided the information we needed to make the best decision possible.  We would absolutely recommend them to anyone." 

​~Beth & Steve 


 "with Tim's walk through videos and the trust that formed from our correspondence, I felt confident enough to purchase my home sight unseen!"

"Hart Real Estate Solutions made my out-of-state relocation search go very smoothly.  From what I thought was going to be a very stressful and uncertain situation, turned out to be positive, comforting and very successful, because of the outstanding service Hart provided.

Tim Hart came highly recommended by the realtor that sold my home, and now I know why.  He immediately contacted me and has always been available by multiple forms of communication...phone, text, email, fax, skype and auto!  He provided information and details that I never would have thought of, let alone thought I could ask a realtor for.

I flew in on a long holiday weekend and met with Tim to view properties that we had discussed, plus some! He was gracious enough to spend the entire day showing me around the whole area that he had mapped out with details on each property. Because I was not from the area he answered all of the many questions that I had.  Hart realty also provided many details, which satisfied any and all of my concerns.  The house that I ended up purchasing was not one that I had viewed while I was in town, but with Tim's walk through videos and the trust that formed from our correspondence, I felt confident enough to purchase my home sight unseen!

Hart Realty has always been very professional with the highest level of integrity.  They worked at all hours and over holiday weekends to provide incredible service and to be as helpful as possible. I knew through all the service they provide that they definitely were looking out for me!" 

~Michele 


 "Not only did we feel listened to and cared for, we felt known in the process."

"As first time homebuyers in a competitive market we felt like we hit the jackpot with Tim and his team. We were inexperienced, lacked knowledge, and weren't sure where to start in the process of purchasing our first home. We were blown away by how personable, warm, and intentional Tim was in getting to know us and trying to find a home that fit our needs as a growing family. Not only did we feel listened to and cared for, we felt known in the process. We never felt pushed or misunderstood. We would HIGHLY recommend Tim and Hart Real Estate Solutions to anyone in the Gallatin Valley looking to buy a home. He was patient with us, helped us ask good questions, and showed us many options to consider. Tim celebrated with us when we found the home for us and fought for us in negotiations. We are truly in love with our home and can't imagine living anywhere else, thanks to Tim and his office our dreams of owning a home in Bozeman, MT came true." 

​~Molly Engel


 "they focused on meeting my needs rather than their own."

"My journey with Hart Real Estate began over a year before the final purchase of my new home in Bozeman.  I wanted to relocate to be near family in my retirement years.  A decision like this isn’t easy but the Hart Team made it hassle-free.  I think this was because they focused on meeting my needs rather than their own.  This was so reassuring and something I had not really experienced with previous real estate dealings in my life.  After several outings with Tim Hart to search for a home, I decided to go with new construction.  This process took several months and the Hart Team was with me all the way, sending me regular updates. They even went to the job site and took pictures to send to me.  When it came time for closing on the property, Tim Hart guided me in the process to make sure that everything was done in my best interest.  I can’t thank the Hart Team enough.  They were more than fantastic!" 

~Jean 


 "Tim and his team guided us, as first-time buyers, through the entire process."

"My wife and I just moved to Bozeman in October of 2016 and we were shocked by the competitive real estate market in Bozeman. We had an initial meeting with Tim and he pointed us to neighborhoods we should keep an eye on based upon our personal tastes. We kept a close eye on the houses that appeared in our desired neighborhood and saw one home that really caught our attention right around New Year's. We contacted Tim on New Year's day in the off chance that he would be able to get us a viewing of the property. To our delight, Tim actually answered our call and scheduled a showing for Jan. 2nd. We loved what we saw and Tim immediately made it happen. We put down the offer that day and got accepted.

 

Tim and his team guided us, as first-time buyers, through the entire process. He suggested an amazing loan officer, inspector, and he worked incredibly well with the seller's agent. Through Hart Real Estate, my wife and I always knew what was happening, exactly what we had to do, and how to leverage the offer in our best interests. The closing could not have been smoother, all parties involved were on exactly the same page which is so important in any business (and life) transaction. My wife and I are so grateful to Tim and his team, we cannot wait to start making memories in our new home."

~Jack & Liz 


 "They put every effort into advising us and keeping the communication going through out the process."

"We came to the Harts with two goals, that was to sell one home at an equitable value and find another that we envisioned would be spacious, on acreage, cuddled close to the mountains, that we could offer hospitality to family and friends...and we had a price range we had to keep our purchase within.   Our experience was stellar doing business with Tim, Lori, and Tracy at Hart Realty, both in the assistance Lori gave us in selling a home and Tim's help finding another one to buy.  They put every effort into advising us and keeping the communication going through out the process.

Personally having advance experience with the Harts, knowing that their integrity goes beyond just making a sale, was reinforced even more through this process.  They always delivered what they promised.

We appreciated the advice Lori gave to prepare our house for putting it on the market and pricing it right.  It was under contract in less than 48 hours!  

Tracy in the office managing all the paperwork details everything moved efficiently.

When looking for our new home, Tim was always very observant to details, open, and honest sharing his personal concerns.  He was a great support when we received the inspection report  on the home we had made an offer on.  He acquired in a timely manner the  estimates of repairs from trusted professional contractors for work needed.   This helped us to reconsider our offer and to move forward with a new offer price negotiation that was accepted by the seller.  

Tim represented us well and always made it clear from the beginning that he would spend as much time with us as we needed to be certain we had the right home for us at the right price.  As clients we felt honored and appreciated from the beginning to the end of our transactions.  We could not have trusted anyone more while making these important decisions than the Harts!"

~Kirk & Ramona 


 "Tim and his team were successfully able to work through our challenges and some unusual issues with the sellers..."

"Tim Hart and the entire team at Hart Real Estate Solutions were wonderful to work with for our recent home purchase. My husband and I had been looking forward to moving back to Bozeman ever since we left, but knew that it was a challenging real estate market, made more challenging by the fact that we were located out of state. Tim and the team at Hart Real Estate supported us the entire way, providing us with probably a dozen video walkthroughs of properties and local market intel. Tim even coordinated an offer for us while out on vacation. And when an offer wasn't accepted, because we weren't the high bid, Tim was on the phone with us late at night to talk us through other options. We were under a tight timeline to find a home, with our house in Colorado already sold and being six months pregnant. Tim and his team were successfully able to work through our challenges and some unusual issues with the sellers of the home we ended up purchasing to make sure that we were able to find a home in time to welcome our first child in Montana. We would recommend Tim and his team to anyone purchasing or selling a home in the Bozeman market."

~Danielle and Harlan Vitoff


 "Everyone at Hart's were upfront and honest during all the aspects of buying a house."

"I have nothing but praise for Hart Real Estate Solutions.

Gave Tim specifics of what I wanted and he showed me exactly the type of home I was looking for and the price range-Tim explained to me with the market in Bozeman would have to pay more to get what I wanted.  Went in on a Wednesday and signed a buy/sell on Friday.  Everyone at Hart's were upfront and honest during all the aspects of buying a house.

Tim and his staff made sure all my questions during the process were answered quickly.  Everyone at Hart's were welcoming and friendly.  Never felt as if was being rushed.  After signing the final papers, I had to call Tim/staff with numerous questions were more than willing to answer or get answers for me.

 If I sell or buy another home in Bozeman I will certainly go to Hart Real Estate Solutions"

 -Pam 


"My wife and I bought our first home through Hart Real Estate Solutions. I had recently graduated and we needed to get off campus. We lost out on a few homes that were “okay” but when our home came on the market, Tim moved quickly but calmly. We were able to get in the house, look around, make an offer and get that offer accepted in less than one day. He met with us several times throughout the process. Tim explained the process thoroughly enough for us, first time buyers, not to be surprised if something came up. I would and have already highly recommend the Hart team for anyone looking for a place to call home." 

- The Yorks


"I am impressed with Tim, Lori, and Tracy at Hart Realty.  We went through the buying process in Bozeman from out of state Tim and team went out of their way to provide video and Skype tours, meet with inspectors, deal with contractors, and provide opinions and insights on the home and neighborhood that are hard to get a feel for without being there in person.  I felt the negotiation phase was skillfully handled as well.  Thank you for a great experience!" 

~Todd 


"As a first time home buyer Tim and his team helped me immensely with a process that I was somewhat unfamiliar with. Any time I had a question regarding the property they had an answer. If they didn't Tim or Tracy would contact the builder and have an answer in less than an hour. The first night i met Tim he showed me 5 homes until 10pm and I was under contract on the home I wanted by 2pm the next day.  Hart Real Estate's promptness and genuine care for my home buying process made my life very easy and I would recommend them to any body in the Bozeman area looking for a home." 

~Colter


"My husband and I were looking to buy a house that our daughter could live in while attending college at Montana State University.  I contacted Lori Hart at Hart Real Estate Solutions to assist us with the search.  That same day, I received a number of listing from her and started looking at properties immediately.  After looking at a number of homes, Lori suggested that she contact a few builders to see if they had anything in the works that was not yet listed.  Within a few days, we met with a builder who allowed us to pick a floor-plan and customize it to fit our needs.  Throughout the building process, Lori and her team stayed in constant contact with myself and the builder to ensure that everything was going according to plan.  We have bought and sold a number of properties in the past and I can honestly say that our experience with Lori Hart and the entire Hart Real Estate Solutions team was by far the best.  I will definitely use them in the future for all of my real estate needs." 

~Donalee King


"Working overseas, I needed a trustworthy team that would work hard on my behalf to help me find the right property. I tried multiple real estate websites before focusing on Hart Real Estate Solution’s site for its ease of use and convenient features. After meeting with Tim and the team once, they worked tirelessly to find me the right home in the right neighborhood. Hart Real Estate truly had my best interest and needs in mind. This was evident by the honest professional service everyone at Hart Real Estate provided to me. Buying a home sight unseen is something I thought I’d never do but Tim and his team gave me honest assessments and furnished the information I needed to make the right decision. Tim went above and beyond to make videos of homes I was interested in. Tim also provided interactive walk throughs via Skype so I could get immediate feedback to questions as I was seeing the properties. From start to finish everyone at Hart Real Estate Solutions made my home buying experience enjoyable and smooth. I can’t express how pleased I am with Hart Real Estate Solutions. If you have real estate needs in the Bozeman area call Tim Hart, you will not be disappointed." 

~Mark Allen


 "When you work with these folks, you access experts and work with people who really care"

"I worked with Hart Real Estate Solutions this year, as I had some money to invest and wanted to purchase some real estate income property.  Tim met with me to discuss my goals, of which I feel he got a clear grasp.  He began feeding me real estate options that met the criteria I had conveyed.  Within a couple months, I had purchased both a residential condo and a commercial condo.  The commercial condo had a lessee with a 3-year contract, which was great.  I immediately leased the residential condo for a good price.

Both Tim and Sean were very helpful and conscientious in this whole process.  When you are dealing with investment properties, there are lots of nuances and potential pitfalls that they worked through with me.  They are obviously very knowledgeable in this area.  When you work with these folks, you access experts and work with people who really care." 

~Paul Larson


"From the beginning, Tim and Lori Hart and Tracy Dardis of Hart Real Estate Solutions made it clear, by their actions, that they were going to help me find the home my wife and I were seeking. I gave them a list of about 15 homes I was interested in based on preliminary research of a number of websites, which was my best option since I did not live in Montana when searching for a home to buy. It was clearly a buyer’s market so properties were going fast. Many of the properties I suggested had already sold. But tapping into their excellent knowledge of the market and the real estate business, they found a new home that hadn’t even been officially listed. They called me with the details which exceeded what I was hoping for and I had them lock it in right away. Throughout the entire process, I grew very impressed with their competence, integrity and personal warmth. I truly feel like I’ve expanded my family and would highly recommend them to anyone!" 

- Jeff Rast - Idaho


 

"I am an experienced buyer and seller of homes, as well as a person with high expectations - so don’t take this lightly:  Tim and Lori Hart truly floored me.

They did a phenomenal job in selling my downtown Bozeman home. Here’s why: first, Lori created a very professional market analysis so we could price it just right. Note: it was much different than the others I had done prior. Then, Lori went on to do a pre-home inspection and put together a punch list of what needed to be done to avoid issues during showings or due diligence. But she didn’t stop there; she went on to play general contractor, getting the right people lined up and scheduled to do the minor repairs.

Meanwhile, Tim was doing his in-person and online marketing magic, so when the house went on the market, it sold within hours, and for over asking price!! I am telling everyone that when you hire the Tim Hart Team, you are getting not just “a realtor” but a PACKAGE DEAL, comprised of people that know how to get it done with professionalism, integrity, and speed. Two thumbs up, five stars, and a standing ovation for the Harts!!  BRAVO!!!!!!!"

~Jen Boulden


"It was 9:30 at night when I texted Tim. My wife and I were perusing Trulia and found our dream home. My gut told me it’d sell fast and that we’d have to act quickly. Less than 24 hours later, we were homeowners.

I love telling folks the story of how we bought our home, how all the pieces came together so perfectly. Tim and his team made it so. The team is friendly, professional and responsive. They have a knowledge of the local market and of the home-buying process. Tim is one of the more organized professionals I know and has a knack for attention to detail. But what really sets the team apart, and what we appreciate most, is the level of service we received from day one. “I work for you,” Tim told me the first time we met. Tim worked alright. And now we’re homeowners.  

We closed on our home during awards season so it seems appropriate to use an Oscar analogy. We give Tim and team “best supporting” accolades for the indispensable roles they played in making our dream of homeownership a reality." 

~Michael & Marciela Ross


"Hart Real Estate Solutions did an excellent job in preparing, advertising and selling our Montana property. They adapted their schedule to accommodate mine (I live in Seattle) and promptly answered every question, even the odd hour ones.  When my RE partner and best friend passed away in Montana, they worked with his widow to make sure that she understood the sales/closing process.  I am hearing impaired but Team Hart dealt with that issue, professionally and effectively. 

My Thanks!" 

~ Terry Corcoran


"It was obvious that the team at Hart Real Estate Solutions genuinely cared that we found the right house for our family.  We never felt rushed or pressured into buying a house, despite looking at many different properties.  Tim always took the time to explain all the aspects of the transaction.  And when the previous owners left the house in less-than-ideal condition at close, Tim offered to take care of the issue at his expense.  Thanks Tim and team!  We appreciate all your help and love our new home."

~ Andrew Youderian


"In a business usually populated by pretenders and part-timers, Tim Hart is a professionals' professional. 

With intimate knowledge of both residential and commercial markets, Tim's strategic differentiator is service.  From taking the time to understand our needs (location for schools, type of neighborhood, architectural style), through the negotiation of price and finally the details of the close, Tim not only advised us, but led the process--and always with patience and understanding. 

Best of all, as clients moving from out of state, Tim helped us ensure a smooth transition, with advice on everything from how to handle city utilities, where to find yard services and a local contractor, and even recommendations for restaurants.  We endorse Tim without hesitation, and will use him again for our future Gallatin Valley real estate transactions!"

~Andy and Mary Harris


"We have had several real estate transactions over the last several years and have been occasionally disappointed in the past, one could say I have high expectations. When we made the decision to work with Hart real estate solutions, we were looking for someone to really listen to our needs and goals and put us first, as well as someone who was knowledgeable and skilled and would work hard for us. We have enjoyed working with Tim, Lori and Sean throughout this whole process and feel that they did just that. We have never been so informed on every step of the process and appreciate the thoroughness, professionalism and respect we were treated with. This team is truly amazing and has not disappointed us, we are very pleased and grateful that we chose to work with Hart solutions this time around."

~Taylor and Michael Waldenberg


"It was great working with Tim and I would recommend him to anyone searching for a home in the Bozeman area. Tim is very internet savvy and when you are an out-of-market buyer like we were, the internet is a key initial component for doing a house search. Tim would email us listings on a weekly basis so we developed a feel for the Bozeman market prior to our arrival.  Once we arrived in Bozeman, Tim had a strong sense for what we were looking for and found us a home that we closed on in two days.  He was very point-of-impact which is great." 

~ Mark Killip


"Tim did an outstanding job selling our house!  As first time home sellers, we didn't know how the process of selling a house would go.  We were so pleased that he took the time to answer all of our questions.  We never felt in the dark or left alone through the whole process.  Tim made time for us and took this single house sale very seriously.

Tim has also surrounded himself with a wonderful team.  From the initial house pictures through closing, everything was done very well."

~McKenzie Family


We were so thrilled with the service, concern, and expertise that Tim Hart showed us as our Realtor. The process of finding our first home was an involved and often emotional one for us, and Tim really went beyond the call of duty in walking us through every step of the process. Throughout our dealings Tim was always easily available and involved with our decision process. We always felt like Tim was always in our corner and truly wanted to find the best home for us; we could always ask as many questions as we wanted and were never pressured into anything we didn't want. Tim has a wonderful wealth of knowledge not only about the neighborhoods and construction companies of the area, but about the entire process of home buying. Tim was also understanding of our fluctuating schedules and always did his best to accommodate us. At one point we had to put our home search on hold for a month and Tim was perfectly understanding; he kept in touch with us but never pressured us or made us feel that we were wasting his time. Furthermore, our two-year-old son was often with us when we were looking at homes, and Tim was as genuinely kind and attentive to him as he was to us. We always felt like we were valued as individuals and as a family, not just as a means to a bottom line.

We would absolutely recommend Tim Hart to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is a kind, thoughtful, thorough, and knowledgeable professional and his integrity and personal attention made this process really memorable and painless for us!

~Aspen Hougen and Nick Burgard  


As a young couple buying our first home, we had no idea what to expect in the house hunting and purchasing process. We are confident that Divine guidance brought us to Tim, for without his help in every detail, we would not have found the perfect house for us as quickly and smoothly as we did! He is extremely familiar with the Gallatin Valley, as he was able to identify the best areas to fit our needs after asking just a few simple questions. He never pressured us into buying or looking at something we were not open to, but when we did seek his advice, it was consistently informative and helpful. He was always one step ahead of us, ensuring every detail was being taken care of, from the bank and title company, to previous owners and houses not yet on the market, etc. He stayed in constant communication with everyone involved, whether through text, email, or a phone call, and worked after business hours to accommodate our schedule. Our relationship with Tim began professionally and grew personally. I can confidently say he made our closing date more special than any other realtor could have done. The process of finding a home is one of the most important journeys you will take, and we would not recommend taking this journey without Tim at your side.

~Landon and Chelsea Bailey


"I have seen Tim go way beyond the call of duty..."

"As a Financial Advisor I have many opportunities to help clients with just about all aspects of their financial well being. That means needing to secure the services of attorneys, accountants and even real estate agents such as Tim. Because my clients rely on me to make sure that the people we use are truly professionals and good at what they do I personally hold them to some pretty lofty standards. I have found that Tim solidly meets those standards. I have seen Tim go way beyond the call of duty in his help and service to not only me but more importantly my clients. I have full confidence in Tim and I believe any one that uses him to either buy or sell a home would come to the same conclusion once they got to know him not only as an agent but as an individual." ~Jim  


"Tim, thanks for all of your help along the way. Even before we listed the property you were making it easier for us to know how to ready the property and providing the ease of access to do so. Thank you for being candid and honest during the whole process. Working with you removed much of the anxiety created by distance, unfamiliarity with market, contractors, and the selling process as it has evolved since we last completed a real estate transaction many years ago. Since both Cole and Casey love the Bozeman area, maybe someday our family will work with you again. Casey even named his son “Bridger” after those awesome mountains!  Thanks again! ~ Diane R.


"Tim Hart was invaluable in helping us find the right home when we moved to Bozeman. He worked hard to understand our needs, listened to our concerns and provided valuable information on neighborhoods and builders. His attention to detail and broad network of relationships helped to secure a timely inspection and ensure a smooth closing. Tim’s professionalism during the buying process convinced us to engage him to interview and recommend a selling agent for our home in another state, saving us a great deal of time and stress. I would highly recommend Tim as an excellent agent who always puts his clients’ needs first." ~Scott MacCall


Tim Hart from Hart Real Estate Solutions has been the best realtor we could hope for. He used all of his offices resources to find us a house that perfectly matched our wants, needs and financial requirements. Tim insured our success by making our search his search. His attention to detail insured our purchase was at the best price and all needed purchase steps were completed stress free. We came from another state so Tim gave us specific info/contacts about utilities, insurance and needed businesses, in the area, insuring our smooth transition. THANK YOU Tim for fulfilling our dream!!
~Mike and Debbie Marjanen


We have used Tim Hart for several of our real estate transactions in the past few years and would commend him for his integrity, availability and knowledge of his field.  When we had questions, he was eager and willing to answer those questions without hesitation.  We felt that he was going to do the best deal for us and never felt pressured in any of our decisions, yet felt that he was someone who had enough experience that we were confident in the suggestions he gave to us. ~Dave and Jennie Lockie


Thank you, Hart! You guys were so responsive to us, it was a real surprise! We have never had this type of real estate experience with other realtors, ever. Though none of the others were 'bad', you were definitely in a higher class. We especially appreciated your looking out for us on every detail, making the buy-sell process easy, suggesting top-notch third parties, and guiding us through to the end of the process. ~Ken & Fe Phillips


As first time home buyers, Tyson and I had much to learn.  We knew we wanted to buy but were quite unaware of all that can happen in this grand endeavor.  We decided to start researching on our own but were in need of guidance. That’s when Tyson’s dad, Barry, gave Tim a call all the way from Boston, Massachusetts.  Barry is a caring man who always looks out for his son and pursued Tim without our knowledge. Tim took the time to talk to Barry on the phone and after many questions were answered and laughs exchanged, Barry decided that Tyson and I needed to meet with Tim.  From day one, Tim made us feel comfortable asking questions and devoted much of his time to educate us on the entire real estate process.  We never felt any pressure from Tim while looking at properties. He gave us the facts without offering his opinion unless we asked for it. He is a very intuitive person and knows when his clients like or dislike something. Tim’s experience, patience and kindness helped us finally find the house that we instantly fell in love with.  We began the process of buying this house and Tim gracefully walked us through every step and every hiccup along the way.  Because Tim has developed a reputation in the community as not only a Realtor but as a quality individual, he was able to put us in touch with all of the right people to help with everything from lending to the inspection.  So many times he went out of his way to answer our questions and be a true friend while listening to our concerns.  He also took time on his weekend to show the house to my visiting family.  He was always easy to reach and he always made our best interest his priority.   He became a trusted friend and a guide into this world of house ownership.  I know that we would not have our dream home if it were not for Tim’s diligence, attention to detail and his compassion for clients.  I would recommend Tim Hart and his services to anyone looking to have a great experience in buying a home. ~Tyson Webb and Amanda Smith


We were looking to purchase a lot to build a home on in Bozeman, MT while living in Minnesota. Tim was extremely helpful, both during the initial search process and then through the follow up process, all the way to closing. I would definitely recommend Tim Hart as a realtor and will use him again when we have a need. ~Mark and Laurie Wahlin


"Tim is different. Tim is interested in you and your needs"

It was our recent privilege to have Tim Hart as our realtor. Bozeman is full of realtors, many of them who simply seem to be looking to hook you on the best, most expensive sale for the sake of their own commission. Tim is different. Tim is interested in you and your needs. Tim is friendly, personable and genuinely concerned about your home needs. Tim is reliable and returned texts and calls quickly. He truly helped you think through the purchase process and what you needed to effectively purchase a home for your family. Not just a house, but a home. Tim was responsive and lightning fast when helping us to bid on homes in which were interested. He helped us to find the right home for us through a very thorough search utilizing the latest in real estate technology. Once we had a contract on our new home Tim helped us find the different problems and communicated with the builder for us to get them fixed. Tim is helpful, very friendly and a very thorough agent. He takes representing you very seriously and wants you to be happy with your purchase. IF we move again, Tim will be our first call! ~Jay and Melissa Smith


My husband and I recently sold our house through Tim and Lori Hart.  From start to finish, this couple was super to deal with. They were always quick to answer our questions, and very friendly in the process. Tim and Lori were very reliable in all their undertakings with us; they were where they said they would be and always on time. I was impressed with the fact that they went through all the paperwork in detail, making sure that we understood what was happening. Lori was quite something to observe as she went about photographing our house for the websites. No detail escaped her eagle eye. Both Lori and Tim have a firm grasp of the local real estate scene and used their knowledge to gain us a quick sale.

We felt like part of the Hart’s family as we went through this process.  We were made to feel valuable and our comments and concerns were taken seriously and always responded to.If you want to buy or sell a home, I truly do recommend Lori and Tim Hart. You need an experience that is as low stress as possible, and they make that work.   ~ Gill and Duane Erlandson


It was a pleasure working with Tim Hart and his staff at Hart Real Estate Solutions regarding the purchase of a home and acreage in Bozeman, Montana in the fall of 2015/spring of 2016.  The purchase was complicated in that it was a short sale, took a long-time for two lenders to approve the price and terms, and had some non-everyday real estate documents.   Tim's many years of experience in all aspects of the real estate process was evident and proved invaluable leading to a successful purchase.

Some examples of superior services and solutions:

  • Providing a time line and milestones early in the purchase; this helped understand process and provided an overview.
  • Having integrity, local knowledge, and paying attention to detail were helpful .
  • Having established ties with local companies facilitated property inspection and selection of a firm to handle the closing.
  • Exhibiting a willingness to discuss anything related to the purchase including truthfully and reliably answering many questions.
  • Responding honestly when he (or staff) did not know the answer, but always following-up.
  • Advising when something was really not important so that time and attention could be given to important items.

Tim and his staff were extremely knowledgeable regarding the purpose and language of the many documents that had to be reviewed and signed; signing was accomplished electronically and saved a lot of time. There is one word to describe the service and experience ... super.    ~Steve Semasko


"I've known Tim professionally for five years. Tim is a very knowledgeable RE Agent with high integrity. I specifically sought him out for my most recent purchase in the Big Sky area and he was a great asset in our negotiation and purchase process. He did everything and more that we could ask our agent to do and provided terrific insight along the way. I highly recommend working with Tim for your Bozeman, Big Sky and Moonlight Basin real estate needs." ~Jeff Dean


Finding a house in Bozeman from Temple, TX, appeared complicated.  My possibilities for being on the ground in Bozeman (with my wife) would be limited.  I needed more than just help.  I needed someone who would listen to my needs, be respectful of my budget, and who cared more about the best fit for us than the best deal for him.  I needed someone I could trust, someone who was willing to do (more than) a little extra.

When I met Tim Hart I sensed that I had found my man, and my experience with him over the past year have proved him to be the best agent I could have possibly had.  My first encounter with Tim was through his website, one of the most most user-friendly sites I had found in my frantic searching.  The website led to phone conversations.  I finally got to meet him personally and felt completely at peace with his style.  He is extremely knowledgeable of the market in this area and knows each neighborhood's distinct characteristics.  After a couple of viewings he had an uncanny sense of what we were looking for.  If we insisted on viewing a property that he was not optimistic about our satisfaction, his instincts proved true every time.  And yet he was patient and NEVER pushy.  He gave us the time we needed to make decisions that pleased us.  We love our new place!

However, finding the house we wanted was only the beginning.  Perhaps people relocating across town have a much simpler time of transition and need little extra assistance.  We were 1500 miles away and totally handicapped when imagining how to put everything together.  Tim made it happen.  First, we had trouble with our mortgage broker.  We had been approved through underwriting for a mortgage amount above what we were going to need.  It seemed simple.  But then the broker hit us with the news that they couldn't finance the home because it was a part of a condominium complex that was only 63% complete.  The home is actually part of a duplex in a neighborhood with a broad Home Owners Association that functions as a condo. The final project will be the addition of more quality homes like ours.  It didn't matter.  We were stuck.  Tim to the rescue!  He got us in contact with a local bank's mortgage broker and everything eventually came together.  He also managed the local connections for inspector, appraiser, blind contractors, and cabinet contractor (we had requested additional cabinets as a condition of sale).  He even introduced us to managers of a couple of furniture stores and gave us a tour of The Ridge Athletic Center!  An issue I would have never thought of for the inspector was a Radon gas test.  Tim insisted on it.  Good thing!  Our basement had levels above the recommended level and Tim had us include a Radon gas exhaust system as a condition of sale.  Now we are safe as well.

Tim is a professional, but also a great human being.  He cares about people and he works hard easing their load during the stressful times of transition.  I have worked with good agents several times in Texas and Saskatchewan, but Tim Hart has been the one with whom I have felt the most comfortable. I feel like I am more than just a client.  I not only have a new home in Bozeman, I have a new friend!

"As a first-time home-buyer and single woman, I entered into the process of selecting a dwelling with a lot of trepidation.  Unsure of the wisdom of purchasing a home at this time in my life, the ins and outs of financing, and the actual specifications that were important to me, I was blessed to work with Tim Hart as my realtor.  Tim not only walked me through dozens of homes, but he also walked me through the cumbersome process with a perpetual smile on his face, recommending mortgage financiers and inspectors, knocking on neighbors’ doors for insider information and calling the city to discuss zoning, wriggling through crawl spaces and testing fence stability.  Tim not only took the time to know the places we were touring, but he took the time to know me, my family, and our needs and wants. However, most of all, Tim became our friend.  He called to check on us when times became tough, prayed over the house with friends the day we closed, and followed-up numerous times in the months following our move.  At the end of this process, not only did I end up with the perfect home for my family, at a fair and affordable price, but I gained a friend and brother-in-Christ; someone who still cares to ask how work’s going, whether I finished the book on my coffee table, and what runs we skied on Saturday."

~Jessica Burgard


"He met us where we were, slowing down the search when we were busy, and quickening it when we had a few free days.  He discussed affordability and encouraged us to look at a house that would still allow us to continue with our lifestyle, instead of pushing us towards the biggest we could afford.  He listened to voiced and unvoiced concerns and opinions and quickly and accurately narrowed the search with criteria that I hadn’t even noticed I had."


Tim went above and beyond what we expected from our realtor. We live out of the Bozeman area and he was more than willing to accommodate us as best he could. He toured the home with our daughters and used FaceTime with us as he showed the house so we saw everything they did in “real time”. His experience dealing with offers and closing the deal were invaluable to us.  His knowledge of the market and locations in Bozeman made us feel at ease with making this purchase. Tim never lost interest in the deal and walked us through the final walk through and the closing. We could not have been happier with his professionalism and attention to detail. ~Dave and Barb Thomas


Our Jackson Creek home purchase had several unique moving parts requiring a great deal of extra work for the realtor. Tim and his crew in our absence represented our best interest with contractors, surveyors and the bank. We feel Hart Real Estate Solutions went beyond expectation and beyond the call of duty to provide our family excellent service. ~Alan & JoAnn Knokey


I recently called on Tim to sell my home in Bozeman.  Working with Tim was a pleasure.   He is diligent, knowledgeable, friendly, and honest.   Tim made sure the entire process went seamlessly from beginning to end.   I would highly recommend Tim to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Bozeman.

~Tanya Cunningham


"Tim Hart changed our lives 3 years ago."

"Let me just say that Tim Hart changed our lives 3 years ago in May. After not having a home for over 5 years, Tim came in to our lives and helped us buy the home of our dreams out here in River Rock. He represented my husband and I AND the seller..was extremely professional and fair to the BOTH of us. At a time when I thought it couldn't happen in our lives, Tim made EVERY effort to help us.

HE was very prompt in returning phone calls, in dealings with Wells Fargo, and also in contacting the sellers in a very timely fashion. Tim Hart was the bomb for Becky and Rodney Copenhaver. I will forever be thankful for this man, his kindness and compassion for us at a very difficult time in our lives. Oh, and not to mention. We looked at our house the very end of April and we closed May 31. I have never had a purchase of a home happen so fast. Thank you Tim Hart! You rock!"  ~Becky and Rodney Copenhaver


We have purchased both a home and a condo from Tim Hart. He is without a doubt one of the most conscientious, trustworthy people we have ever had the privilege to work with. When my aunt from California was interested in purchasing property in Bozeman, I didn’t hesitate to put her in touch with Tim. Once again, we were met with well-beyond the usual representation. He has shown us numerous properties numerous times. My aunt feared he must be getting impatient, but that never happened. I truly believe Tim cares about his clients, and is only interested in finding them the right property at the right price; and he didn’t stop until he found it. A mixture of integrity and professionalism that is hard to find these days. ~Kelly Simmons and Bill Preston


As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions. Tim was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He never once pushed the idea that I should hire him. Tim took the time to answer all my questions and walk me through the whole process about buying a home. If Tim was willing to work that hard without me even hiring just imagine what he was capable of doing when I did.

I was not disappointed. He sent me updates on houses in my price range almost daily. That's where I found my house. Answered my questions promptly, carefully read and explained all the paperwork. He provided competent people for the house inspection and even sent me a checklist of things to do to finish the sale. All of this plus a very nice, enthusiastic and thoughtful attitude.

For a first time buyer or even an experienced buyer I strongly recommend Tim. ~Marty Gloyna


I recommend Tim highly. We found him online. He listened to what we wanted. He spent hours taking us to various homes within our price range during times which were convenient to us. He was always available including evenings and weekends. We looked at well over 20 homes. He answered all questions promptly and responded to requests within a reasonable time. It is a very hot market in Bozeman and he supplied us with new listings as they came up and sent us information on the properies so that we could quickly determine if they were of interest to us. I would use him again and recommend him without reservation. ~Barbara Jacobi


I have thirty years of investing in commercial and residential property. Throughout this period I have encountered most personality types, the full array of sales pitches and differing professional styles.

I can say that I have been thoroughly impressed with the service Tim has offered over the twelve months. Tim’s attributes are reflected in his professional approach, this coupled with sound market knowledge of the broader Bozeman area delivers an outstanding experience.

Tim was willing to facilitate my unique requests as a foreign buyer into the US property market. On my initial visit to Bozeman Tim dedicated long hours and many miles in familiarizing me to the local market. Tim offered sound advice, with a high level of integrity and honesty to the point that I was able to purchase a property ‘site-unseen’. My purchase was supported through Tim’s network professional service providers.

My purchase was not without challenges, but I have to acknowledge Tim’s tenacity and focus on achieving results. If can sum this up, when you engage Tim Hart, you synergize as a team to successfully pursue a goal. ~Jordi Duffy


Tim helped my wife and I buy our first home. He was extremely patient with us as we explored a vast number of homes, and when we finally decided to build our own, he was very adept at drawing u p contracts to make sure it was done right and on deadline. His knowledge, expertise, integrity, and patience were incredible. We can't thank him enough, and since he and his family were such a pleasure to be around, our transaction turned into a friendship. Any time we hear folks mention buying a home, we love getting to tell them about Tim Hart. ~Alex Tanenbaum


We found the help received by Tim to surpass our greatest expectations in a market so badly bruised by conditions beyond our control. He went to the mat for us and never stopped making us feel like we were his number one clients though I knew he was very busy with several more prestigious accounts. All I can say is that there is no one better to have on your team and, seriously...may his kind increase! ~Mike Baber


Realtor. That title has a connotation, in your mind, right now. You're thinking of someone you know or once knew. You're thinking of an experience you had in real estate where you had to work with a Realtor. These days almost everyone knows a Realtor or has a friend/sibling/relative that does this. It's easy to ask on Facebook "Anyone know a good realtor in this town?" and get a few responses. Everyone will recommend a realtor they know. But is that really what you want? 

A realtor is someone that takes you through the process of making a very large and complicated purchase. They are there to help you make a tough decision, with their wisdom and expertise, and to provide counsel. They guide you through the journey of buying something that you intend to call home for a long time. 

Why would you pick one based on a recommendation of a friend that's never even been their client? 

Tim Hart is a realtor. Tim Hart is the realtor you should use. Not because I went to high school with him, or because we're old buddies, or because I get a finders fee for referrals... but because Tim Hart is an excellent realtor. 

When you're going into a home buying purchase, it doesn't matter if he's a friend of a friend that has a nice smile. You want someone with integrity, patience, and reliability. Integrity is an obvious word when describing someone providing service, but what do we mean by it when looking for a realtor? It's such a hard quality to read until you've been with the realtor for some time. Tim didn't pressure us into buying anything. When we finally found something, he allowed us to make an informed decision, without any pressure - just logical thoughts and opinions.

We looked at several homes, and even considered holding off our search until more homes came on the market. Tim gave us no grief over the idea of waiting for the home we want. He was very patient, and even showed us the same house a few times so we could really think about the decision. We never felt like we were inconveniencing him. Some realtors make you work around their schedule. Tim graciously worked with ours. 

Reliability. That's a term we all can understand, unless you drive a Saab. Tim was the Honda Civic of realtors. Always there when we needed him and often available early morning or late evening.

In our previous home purchase, in a different state, we had a realtor that was 'seasoned' and nearing retirement. There are tradeoffs when you factor age into a realtor. A younger realtor may not have the patience in looking at every home that's for sale in the area, but they may be more aggressive in negotiating. An older realtor may take things slower, but they'll have more patience in working with you. Tim is a perfect mix of experience and gusto. We thoroughly enjoyed his input and guidance when looking at the various neighborhoods, and when it came time to negotiate, Tim was spot on. He even suggested a few things we didn't think we'd get as part of the repair addendum. The relationships he has with existing brokers in the area is also a huge plus. 

Ultimately, you have to make the decision of which realtor matches your needs. Tim may not be the recommendation from your Aunt, or long lost friend from high school... but he's my recommendation.
