Once again Shawna performed exceptionally. From showing me appropriate properties meeting my specifications to closing the transaction, all was handled in a professional yet caring manner: I really appreciated all of Shawna’s advice throughout the offer/counter offer process. She’s made exceptional efforts in keeping in touch and me informed. This was difficult since during this process I was living in three different places and was traveling back and forth t o Helena.
On a more personal note, this has been a trying time for me and I have really appreciated the friendship and efforts on your behalf. It made it a lot easier.
Once again you made a real estate transaction a pleasant and rewarding experience. I believe Shawna helped me get a good deal that was fair to both parties. Needless to say I will continue to recommend you to people I know that are interested in the Big Sky area.

This was my 3rd transaction with Shawna. I initially was recommended to Shawna by Skip Radick, but I returned the 2nd and 3rd times because of how well I was represented and treated. I have faith that whether I was buying or selling I always made a deal for a fair and reasonable price. Shawna has been a pleasure to deal with. She is knowledgeable of the market, and helped me set a price that would enable and encourage a speedy sale. Her service was superb. She always kept me up-to-date on progress, and had great ideas on how much to remodel to get ready for sale. She saved me money and time by helping me to limit my initial remodeling ideas.
Her personal manner is what sets her apart. She is caring and honest. I have enjoyed working with her. It has been fun watching her confidence grow since our first transaction three years ago.
Needless to say I will continue to recommend Shawna most highly. Thank you for all your help.
We want you to know that we think Shawna Winter is terrific as both a person and as our representative. We first came to know her about six months ago under circumstances that can only be described as your proverbial long story.
She is very patient, efficient, well organized: and she has some of the best listening skills I have ever run across. She is always professional and very prepared… a joy to work with. One other of her clients has made the same observations to us about their experience with her.
I was a business center head in for a large national company in New York for more years than I care to admit and I like to think I am a good judge of people with potential to excel. I honestly believe she has “the right stuff.” My husband who does not sprinkle compliments lightly feels the same way.
I suspect you already know this but I want you to know that we, too, think she is a star.

Shawna was not our sales associate on our real estate transaction, but was the seller. She was so much help – providing us with information we needed. When we decide to make another real estate transaction at Big Sky we will definitely call Shawna.
