Mike was very easy to work with, he really understood what we were looking for and didn’t show us anything that didn’t fit. It took a while to sell our home so we made a few trips Mike showed great patience. Would recommend highly!

-Barry & Anne Kramer

Mike has been extremly helpful from our very first communication. He is always responsive and made himself available to show us properties of interest. He would perform research and provide us with details when information was not available in the listing. He was gracious and willing to take a whole day out of his weekend to take us around the West valley when we started our first day of looking at properties. He came prepared with a folder that included all the information we would need while walking the properties. Mike is a first-rate realtor. I will use him for our next purchase and have already recommended him to friends and family.

-Brian Laird

I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with Mike Hodges for my house hunting and purchase. He is from the local area, so is very knowledgeable about and familiar with all the neighborhoods and local businesses, etc. He is very prompt to return calls and emails. He went the extra mile for me on several occasions: I'm from out of town, and he cheerfully accomodated my travel schedule, and did chores for me when I was out of town. He was quite willing to work with my out-of-town lender. I think he had extra work to do, too, due to my new house being for sale by owner: this work was cheerfully undertaken, as always. He is very realistic about the current scarcity of houses on the market, and on prices, and tells you the way things are rather than the way you wish they were. As it happens, I found the house I wanted rather quickly, but he was willing to keep showing me additional properties before I went home just to make sure I'd seen everything relevant (and also in case the deal fell through). I really can't say enough about him.

-Lisa Batzle

We have been so impressed with Mike's commitment and communication as our agent.   Mike worked tirelessly to represent us and to make sure we knew what to expect throughout.   The results were incredible and we can't thank him enough for his work and dedication as our real estate representative.  

- Frank Garner

I was a first time home buyer when I came to Westward Bound Real Estate, and Mike Hodges was my realtor. Since day 1 of starting the search for my first home Mike was nothing short of attentive, patient, and informative of every question I answered (and I had a lot of questions). Mike worked tirelessly and efficiently for us, and offered valuable advice if things were ever starting to get sticky. Whenever I need to go through the process of buying or selling, I'll be sure to give Westward Bound Realty a call.

- Sarah Hallauer

Mike was a great guy to work with. He went above and beyond to get us into the house of our dreams and was really responsive to calls and emails. In the process of getting into our new home only took three weeks and we appreciated his attentive assistance very much.

- Lori Bainter

It was great working with Mike on our purchase.  He was right on top of everything and made it nice by dropping by my office with documents as needed, in order to expedite the process.

- Patrick Conover

It was great to work with Mike in our home buying experience. Was willing to meet us to look at homes and answer text messages in a timely fashion! We will be referring friends:)

- Tiffany Rau

Michael could not have been a better agent for me. He worked so hard to make things go smoothly for me, not to mention all the physical work he did to help me prepare my home. He endured my impatience, as well as the nitpicking questions from the buyer with which I was pretty annoyed. My location, having already moved to Missoula, made it even more difficult for him to serve my needs. He went way out of his way to accommodate me.

Even though we have been friends for years, he was extremely professional at all times and guided me toward a reasonable price for my home. He exposed it beautifully with ads, open houses and printed material to hand out.

Michael is fairly new in the real estate business but I think he is a natural and will do very well. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know.

- Sandra Reid

It’s difficult to compose a testimonial for Shelby and Mike without sounding hyperbolic, so I’ll just go ahead and use every accolade in the book.

Shelby and Mike treated us more like friends than merely clients. They helped, advised, encouraged and supported us at every step in our cross country move and the sale of our house. This was my first experience of packing up a life and selling a house, but Shelby and Mike made the experience a completely positive one. They did this by going way above and beyond. They helped us find homes for treasured possessions that we had to leave behind, they helped us find cleaners, painters and repair people and did so much more. And this was all in the months before the house was actually listed.

They made the house look so beautiful that once it was listed it sold in record time. They also made the closing process absolutely painless and easy even though we were thousands of miles away.

So, if you need to sell a house, call Westward Bound. If you need to buy a house call Westward Bound. I consider it one of the best decisions of my life that I chose Westward Bound.

- Suzanne Siegel

I know a few realtors in the  valley, but when it was time to sell our home, ours was an easy decision. Mike knows his stuff, led us thru every step and got us more than we were hoping for and a fast sale. The highest integrity, coupled with knowledge and a network that helps him rise above the ordinary are just a few of the reasons why Mike Hodges should be your agent and why Westward Bound your agency.

- Mike Howe

Mike Hodges was an incredible agent. He kept me well informed on the changes and updates during the process of purchasing my first home. Mike always had an answer to every one of my questions. A true professional.

- Cody Eacker

Mike Hodges was an absolute pleasure to work with and is a great asset to your company. He made purchasing a home from 2,000 miles away just as easy as if we were currently located in the area. His responsiveness and communication was top notch. He made my wife and I feel like he always had our best interests in mind and helped with the little things as we were making our big move West. I would definitely recommend Mike as a realtor and will use him in the future.

- Andy Fovargue

Mike was wonderful to work with! So friendly and accommodating at all hours of the day and days of the week! This man goes above and beyond for his clients. I would recommend him many times over!

- Sarah Howell

Mike was great and easy to work with. Communication was superb and he always advocated for us, as sellers. I have no hesitation to recommend him to family and friends.

- Amber Dean

Mike did a great job.  I'm located in Colorado and couldn't get to Montana for closing.  He made everything very easy and seamless. 

- Bryan Boyd

From day one, until the day we closed, we had a great experience.  Mike was more than 100% engaged and went above and behind when things came up in the process.  Mike was a pleasure to work with every step of the way.  We could not have asked for more and are very grateful for his guidance and service. If you are looking for a professional and seasoned Realtor, call Mike Hodges.  

- Susan Davenport-Downey

It was a pleasure to work with Mike. He was readily available to me and very knowledgeable about real estate. He was able to refer me to other services in the community, making the process of  purchasing a property a smooth ride.

- Phaedra Jackson

I decided to put my property up for sale and had just begun the process to find the best agent to list it with. As I began my search in the Kalispell area I was looking for someone with integrity and enthusiasm that would get my property sold. As I was searching I discovered and found a Real Estate Endorsed Local Provider (ELP). I was put in touch with Westward Bound Real Estate and was contacted by Michael Hodges. After one phone call I found him to be very polite and he answered all my questions. After deciding to move forward with him I was not disappointed because he got my property sold at the right price in a fraction of the time I had anticipated. What I liked best about working with him was his enthusiasm for my property and his promptness in staying in touch with me, either to tell me something or to answer my questions, always with an upbeat attitude. Smiles.

- Ronnette Adams

Mike was very faithful in alerting me ahead of time of prospective buyers who wished to view my home in order to cause me the least inconvenience possible and he also provided follow up comments as to why the house didn't fit the viewers particular need.
When it came to the closing on the sale of the old property and the purchase of the new, Mike arranged everything like clockwork.

- Janet McDougall

Mike was very friendly and kept up great communication with me even with his busy schedule. He was patient with my daughter and I while looking at so many places before finding our home. The seller was a FSBO and he was very impressed with how Mike handled everything. Mike and Shelby were so professional and knowledgeable through the whole process of buying a home during these crazy times. I highly recommend them!
