About Monte

Monte has lived in Whitefish since 1993 and knows the town inside and out. His real estate involvement began with property management and soon it became clear that real estate sales are what really interest him. Monte came to RE/MAX Whitefish in his fifth year as a Realtor and third year as a Broker. From a $30,000 lot to a $3,000,000 piece of the Flathead, Monte treats all his clients and their transactions with care and diligence. Top notch service is a high priority; from being easy to get a hold of, to late night or early morning offer writing, he will be there for you. Monte has been in real estate for over 17 years and has been a broker/owner and manager of RE/MAX Whitefish for over 11 years. He has helped grow the company from 8 agents to 27 currently.

Monte has earned multiple awards for being a top sales associate in his career so far and plans to continue. He specializes in creative development and investment opportunities. Monte really enjoys the marketing aspect of the job and goes above and beyond to satisfy his sellers.

Monte lives in Whitefish with his sons Carver and Gates. His entire family enjoys the outdoors. They feel there is no better place to live, work and raise a family than here in the Flathead Valley.

I completely recommend Monte Gilman for any real estate needs. He is a phenomenal realtor and human being. Monte not only has mass experience but he is bright and professional and very thorough. He handles no part of the process with half a heart and makes sure every aspect of the transaction is completed with precision. I didn’t give Monte much of a warning to show my property and he had a very complete list and appointments lined up perfectly in the short time I was in town. Further, I have used Monte for a very complicated subdivision that we needed handled in a very short period of time and Monte dominated the scene. He got us exactly what we needed. His efforts and care is incomparable. Monte Gilman is the best and this valley is so fortunate to have him.

Monte was recommended to us by a good friend when we had a desire to move to the Flathead Valley. Being new to the Flathead valley and Montana, Monte provided information about all the cities/towns, recreational aspects of the area, the culture, etc. He listened to us in regards to our home wants  and needs as well as our price range and showed us real estate that fit within what we were looking for and our price range. He did not waste our time with properties that were outside our price range or did not meet our criteria. He was also flexible and patient with us as we got to know and understand the valley better as well as the housing market and what was realistic within our price range. We found a neighborhood that we liked and our new home as well. When we hear of people who desire to move to the Flathead valley we share with them Monte’s contact information because we know that they will be treated well, they will be listened to in regards to their housing wants and needs, and they will be shown properties that fit within their budget and not have their time and efforts wasted.

I absolutely recommend Monte Gilman for all your real estate needs. We had what I thought was a nice piece of property to sell; We listed it with another realtor, after a year we changed realtors and went with another one. We did this four times. I was looking through a who’s who of realtors  in the Flathead Valley and Monte’s name came up at the top. So I called him. He was very mellow, easy to deal with, and efficient. The listing was fast and easy. BUT the best part is after the property being listed for three years with other realtors, Monte sold it in a few months. I would recommend Monte Gilman very highly.

Robert Burgess

I had the great pleasure of working with Monte Gilman. He is professional, hard working, honest and personable. His knowledge of the local area and market was incredible and we highly recommend him for any real estate needs.

Hugh Lin

Monte is incredibly knowledgeable about the local and regional real estate market and was a tremendous help in buying and then selling a unique property on the Whitefish River. He and his team kept things moving on our sale transaction and the showings, documentation, and the closing went off without a hitch. I can’t recommend Monte Gilman and the Whitefish RE/MAX team highly enough!

Jeff Heutmaker

Monte was great to work with. I would recommend him for your real estate needs. He was patient with us and went out of his way to help us with our purchase and made the transaction very easy especially with us being in another state. Thank you Monte!

Alessia Wanick

We used Monte for both my mother’s transaction and my wife and myself. It was a tremendous experience from start to finish, he was always available out and always able to answer questions quickly and resolve issues rapidly. Terrific experience.

Cameron Gardner

My wife and I feel very fortunate to have connected with Monte Gilman and RE/MAX of Whitefish. Monte provided us with numerous properties to consider in advance of an initial house hunting trip as we were considering a move from Southern California. After identifying a unique, partially completed property with special circumstances, Monte really excelled and provided amazing service that allowed us acquire and ultimately complete construction on a dream home in Whitefish. Monte introduced us to an amazing general contractor in less than a day and lined up a series of inspections that allowed us to remove all contingencies within 48 hours and close 2 weeks later. The depth of Monte’s local contacts and relationships are what made the transaction possible. Highly, highly recommend Monte and RE/MAX of Whitefish!

Todd George

We feel very fortunate to have found Monte in our realtor search for the Whitefish area. As we are not from Whitefish, we needed someone with a good knowledge of the area who was available and responsive to check into properties. Monte was more than willing to do video walk-throughs and provide valuable insight into the pros and cons of each area. He was professional without being too formal, and easy to talk to and work with. He went above and beyond by going to the property several times to pick up packages, meet with contractors, etc. We highly recommend Monte if you need an agent in the Flathead area.

Todd Holmberg

Professional, honest, realistic. Monte has been a pleasure to work with.
