Client Testimonials, Recommendations, Feedback: What others are saying about Taunya Fagan Bozeman Real Estate Agent
I can’t tell you HOW EXCITED WE ARE TO GET TO BOZEMAN!!!! And so relieved that everything went as smoothly as it did considering our complicated schedules these past 6 wks! I’m so grateful for all of your help, advice and support through the whole process. Buying property out of state is scary and unfamiliar. I appreciate all that you taught me, showed me, shared with me – more than you know! You’ve been so AWESOME to work with and are such an INCREDIBLE person inside and out! I’m so looking forward to growing our friendship!
From another Bozeman Real Estate Agent:
It was such as amazing pleasure to work with you and I really, really mean it. You have no ego, no attitude, you are just there for all the right reasons. I worship you!!!
I’ve bought and sold quite a few homes during the 35 years I’ve lived in Montana but never has it gone so smoothly as it did when you recently sold my townhouse and found the perfect replacement home for me here in Bozeman.
Your service was far and beyond my expectations. You found and supervised someone to upgrade my townhouse and sold it so quickly. You advertised it on TV and had several open houses and before I knew it, it was sold. And my new home is perfect. You listened and knew exactly what I was looking for. We didn’t spend a lot of time looking at homes. One look at one home and I bought it. I don’t know how you did it.
I, as you know, had been in real estate at Big Sky for 25 years and know the business. You, my friend, did everything perfectly. We closed on both properties without a hitch in about 2 weeks.
You can be sure I will recommend you to all my Big Sky and Bozeman friends. And thanks for that chili soup you brought over when I had that bad cold. What a gal! And a superb realtor too.

We were vacationing near Bozeman, Montana in August 2005, when Taunya shared her enthusiasm for Montana living and it’s all around advantages. To make a long story short, she showed us property and we purchased our home with her help in Gallatin Gateway in Sept. 2005. A short while later Taunya also brokered my deal with Yellowstone Club to buy 5.5 acres and join the club in October 2005. We couldn’t be happier with our purchases and we owe the smooth transaction to Taunya. She thinks of creative ways to surmount problems aided by her thorough and efficient preparation and her focus on the clients. We were impressed with Taunya’s ability to search out properties that were not yet on the market and could potentially be real bargains. No deal is too complicated for her. Besides her strong professionalism and integrity, Taunya is positive and cheery, and a delight to work with. She is fun, fair and flexible.
Currently, we are looking at other properties with Taunya and continue to be impressed with here knowledge and skills. We highly recommend her for any real estate deal.

We recently had a major move out of the Bozeman area to north western Washington State. My husband took a position with a company there and had to leave immediately. I was a bit concerned about being left with a 2yr old and trying to get my house sold quickly so that we could all be together. I interviewed several agents that seemed relatively competent but they all had to get back with me, check on prices and think about how best to market the house. There also seemed to be the gloomy warning of slowing house sales at this time of the year (late September).
When Taunya showed up I knew immediately that she would be the agent for us. She came with comparable market value comps in hand, she had her camera ready to take pictures and list that day, she had a marketing plan that included internet, newspaper, and television ads, at no additional charge to her standard commission. I was so impressed I agreed to sign with her on the spot. She was very helpful in coming up with a fair price that would have our house sold quickly but still assure us a great profit. Taunya began work immediately and kept her word and all her promises for her advertising package. She then wasted no time in setting up an open house only days after the listing was posted and did not one, but two full days in a row, on the first weekend of the listing.
Both days went very well, but at the end of the second day as she was packing up to leave a single man drove up on his motorcycle and asked if she would show him around. Even though she was ready to go, Taunya cheerfully agreed. He seemed like an unlikely buyer for such a large family home, and she had been told by many a nay sayer that ”no one every sells houses to buyers at open houses”. It turned out that though he did not have an agent, he was a serious buyer and was also so impressed with Taunya that he not only made an offer, but used her as his agent as well! Taunya handled being a dual agent with professionalism and fairness to both parties, making sure she took care of every detail with expediency and enthusiasm.
She even helped move up the closing date so all parties could move forward as quickly as possible. She made the experience fair, smooth and easy! But Taunya did not stop at the signing. She continued to follow up after the sale. Taunya spent her time making sure that we were set up with an agent in our new home and even followed up with finding a fantastic lender who worked extremely hard to make our experience buying our new home here as easy as possible. We cannot say enough about the integrity and professionalism that Taunya displayed in a world where you don’t often see that kind of work ethic anymore. We truly felt blessed! We would urge anyone in the Bozeman area to use Taunya as their agent if they truly want the best. And we wish her continued success and prosperity in the future.

Wanting to enter the Bozeman Real Estate market, we purchased our first condo through you in 2003. You found us a new condo in a lovely development with beautiful views, and we were tremendously pleased with the quick, smooth closing of the purchasing transaction.
Two years later, you found us our dream home, and once again we had the opportunity of working with you in the listing of our condo. Your listing services went “above and beyond” that which is normal.You artfully and professionally staged the condo, designed beautiful flyers, held well advertised weekly open houses with detailed follow-up with potential buyers.
You marketed our property on the internet, television, and in local and national newspapers. You kept us informed of the activity you were having on the condo. It all worked to procure a “top dollar” sale shortly after listing the property which allowed us to purchase our dream home which you found for us.
You helped us find a lender and worked with us on a day to day basis to insure quick, smooth closings on both the selling and purchasing transactions.Your tireless effort and positive attitude, your responsible approach and skillful negotiation, backed by your exceptional real estate knowledge, helped us achieve our dream.
We want to tell you how impressed we were with your work ethic and devotion to us as your clients and thank you. You truly are in an elite category of real estate agents.
Sincerely, George and Joy, Bozeman, MT
We wanted to write you a short note of appreciation for all you have done for us over the course of the past two years. To recap, we met when we called you about a listing. We were outside of the home and you came right over and met us, with no hesitation. We were immediately struck by your professionalism, promptness, your knowledge of your field and this market in particular. From that point forward you regularly contacted us with possible homes and land in which we might be interested. You were always accommodating when we called you to view property. We looked at a lot of properties over the course of two years and you were always patient and never made us feel like we were wasting your time. Finally, in May of 2007 you walked into a home with us and we knew right away, it was a match and this was the home we had been looking for, for the past 2 years. You assisted us in the buying process and advised us oh how to get the home for a reasonable price. You respected our concerns and never pushed us to step outside of our comfort zone financially. You also calmed our fears about selling our current home in a timely fashion. We feel you did your research and appropriately advised us on how much we should list our home for. We were struck by your marketing skills as we feel they are excellent and we were amazed that you sold our home in three days. Your candid advice regarding how to show our house in the best manner possible was outstanding. In fact, the process was so painless it took us both by surprise. We greatly appreciate all you have done for us and are grateful to have met you. You were a wonderful real estate agent and now a great friend. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for all the hard work on our behalf. We had been looking to buy property in Bozeman for years and when the opportunity came in 2009, we jumped on it. We had no real estate contacts in Bozeman and we found you by simply researching agents on line. We decided to start working with you because your website was so well organized and informative. Your website was also one of the few to offer all the info on the property without ﬁrst requiring us to provide you “with our personal information and email”. I found your approach very refreshing.
Once we got to know you, you lived up to our highest expectations. Your efforts on our behalf were limitless. You are also one of the most informed agents we have ever met. You obviously do your homework and stay involved on all levels in the Bozeman community. Over time, everyone we met had nothing but the highest praise for your approach and honesty. Our experience with you matched your reputation in the area.
We ended up buying 2 properties in the Bozeman from you in early 2009, one great new house and one separate piece of beautiful land. Both are perfect. We are very excited to ﬁnally be part of the Bozeman community. Thank you for helping us on so many levels. Good luck in everything you do!
