Brenda Miller • Montana Brokers • First Vice President Candidate

Brenda has worked in offices; two of which she managed; most of her adult life.  This experience has prepared her to be very detail-oriented, able to handle a lot of paperwork and the ability to handle multiple things at the same time. Brenda's clients are the beneficiaries of this experience.  She genuinely loves what she does and will put in as many hours as necessary (just ask her husband) to make sure her clients get to the closing table happy and excited.

Brenda enjoys giving back to her community and profession.  Over the years she has been a Cub Scout leader, Girl Scout leader, room mom, member of the PTO, volunteer at the Spay and Neuter Clinic and served at her church.  Currently she serves on the Government Affairs committee, Professional Development committee and the REALTOR® Board of Directors locally and at the state level.

Brenda enjoys spending time in her garden; both vegetable and flower; canning, whitewater rafting and traveling.

Sarah grew up on the tree lined streets of 4th Avenue East in Kalispell. Upon graduating from Flathead High School, armed with 24 college credits from  FVCC, she transferred to the University of Montana to pursue a degree in Business Administration, majoring in Accounting. After ten fulfilling and successful years as a Certified Public Accountant she and Luke expanded their family and welcomed Hugo home in 2016.  With hope and excitement for a family friendly and flexible second career (LOL!) Sarah became a REALTOR. Hindsight is 20/20, but nonetheless, she fell right in love with her new path. Year one was a grand success in welcoming baby Stevie home and being voted Rookie Of The Year. She hasn’t taken her foot off the gas and recently earned her Brokers License and has opened Alpenglow Realty. Sarah is the current Chair of both the Government Affairs Committee and the Technology Committee and sits on the FlexMLS Committee. Additionally, Sarah is a member of the City of Kalispell’s Board of Adjustment and Economic Revolving Loan Fund Committee and is the Treasurer for a local non-profit, Gap Fillers Flathead. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys racing sailboats at the North Flathead Yacht Club, camping with the family and skiing with friends.
