When we set out to purchase our first home, there wasn't much available in our price range. We went to Lambros, and saw Mindy Palmer. She (and her assistant at the time, Deborah Gladback) worked really hard to find us a place that fit our needs and our budget. We respected the fact that they chose to steer us away from a few bad places, rather than just getting the sale for themselves. We finally got our house, and then experienced some difficulties with the mortgage company - we ended up overpaying our property taxes by several hundred dollars. We thought we were on our own, but when Mindy found out, she and her assistant went with us to the courthouse and she then called some of her contacts on our behalf, and brought a check for the overpayment to my husband at work. She was named Realtor of the Year that year, and it was well deserved. Hopefully, she will still be working in Missoula when we decide to sell our house.
