    Doug Deaton



    I love what I do and where I do it. My grandparents homesteaded a small farm in eastern Montana, raising 6 children in the ‘20’s and ‘30’s. Montana is a part of me. It is with great satisfaction that I get to share my passion for Montana with clients every day. Getting people to talk about their dreams and making those dreams come alive is what drives me. Real estate doesn’t feel like work to me; it’s simply more of the thrill and energy I feel when bicycling, motorcycling or snowmobiling. That push for excellence. That knowledge that my legal education, life experiences, and hard work will bring success; bringing you face to face with your dreams. Because when it is done well, we end up with a lot more than a home in paradise, we end up with good friends for life.

    Amy Deaton


    License Number: 31639

    All my life experiences have led to my career in real estate. Working to help others brings out my best; hand me any job without worry or second-guessing. I’m a zealous listener and aggressive pursuer of creative solutions to life’s challenges. The details make me smile. To me, Bigfork is not a resort town, but rather a community so inspiring one visit is all it took to call it home. Living here means having more than a lifetime’s worth of adventures. Working here means an unwavering commitment to getting the job done, but with the joy of both a professional and personal touch. Home at last!

    Jeff Manning


    License Number: RRE-RBS-LIC-53261

    Coming to the Flathead Valley, my wife and I were awestruck by the vastness and natural beauty that we have been blessed to call home. Moving from a little town in Ohio, we settled three miles south of heaven in the charming village of Bigfork. As a man of faith, I’m true to my word. As a REALTOR®, I also strive to provide customer service that meets or exceeds my client’s expectations through hard work, due diligence and integrity. Patience and understanding are key attributes that I’ve acquired during my tenure as a Real Estate agent. Listening and being empathetic towards the client is paramount for a successful transaction and lasting relationships. In my downtime, my wife and I enjoy pontoon rides on the beautiful Flathead River. My passion for waterfowl hunting and big game keeps me busy in the fall, landscaping and outdoor chores are great stress relievers. JEFF MANNING REALTOR® jeff@deatonandcompany.com (406) 499-1010
