We were looking to purchase a second residence in Bozeman, Montana.The only problem was, or so I thought, is that we live in Southern California. Our only option was to look at properties online and make as few flights as possible. I really wasn’t sure how this was going to go.Not long after a few realtor calls, one person got my attention, Don Carr of Hart Real Estate Solutions. Talking on the phone for a short time gave me a feeling of confidence in him. I can tell you that our experience working with Hart Realtor could not have been any better!Don was patient and professional and he knew the area well. He loved living in the area and wanted to share that with us. We even went on a hike so we could experience the full beauty of the area. How’s that for going above and beyond! Don was more concerned that we were happy and making the right decision prior to placing an offer than just making a quick sale.We flew out twice to look at properties and placed an offer on the second visit. Don ran searches that listed our criteria which we received on a daily basis. All properties were very close to what we were looking for so little time was wasted. One month of searching and we placed an offer which was accepted. So now the closing phase begins. Our account was handled by Tracy Dardis and let me tell you that it ran smoother than a Swiss watch. Tracy gave us a checklist before we flew home with a packet and a timeline on all items that needed to be completed. Things fell into place on a daily basis and we felt confident the whole way through. She let us know of things in advance so we were always prepared.Special thanks to the owners Tim and Lori Hart for putting together such an experienced, caring team and treating us like family.I would highly recommend Hart Real Estate Solutions to anyone looking to purchase a home, property or Condo in the Bozeman area!Best,Susan and Robert Hynes

Great property manager and realtor. Very honest and forthright individual. I feel like some of the negative comments on here are due to the young college age "no responsibility, entitlement mentality" that is so common in our society these days.Jaclyn is particular about certain things, but the honesty and integrity with which she runs her business and treats her tenants is unquestionable. If you value someone who is honorable, upfront and gets the job done, rather than sugar coat things for your thin skin and sensibilities, then Jaclyn is the right choice.
Jaclyn Katz is a horrible person beware never rent from her she likes ripping people off with the deposit even if the house is perfect condition and all her list of rules are bullshit yes I understand about some rules I get it but u can even have air freshener to spray and boy if she calls you u better call her back as soon as possible or u probley get kicked out of your home and charge you a penalty of manager time she won't let you talk because you can't never get a word in becasuse she always say let me do the talking and don't care what I think the bitch needs to be in a nut house or go back where she came from i am writing this because People needs to know what they are getting themselve into there is a reason she can't keep anyone the only good in her is that if something needs fix she will get it fixed that's it
Everdawn was always making sure I felt comfortable and that I understood all the real estate language, as it can be very overwhelming. They did a great job!
It was a pleasure working with Tim Hart and his staff at Hart Real Estate Solutions re the purchase of a home and acreage in Bozeman, Montana in 2016. Tim's experience in all aspects of the real estate process lead to a successful purchase.Some examples of superior services and solutions:- Providing a time line and milestones early in the purchase.- Having integrity, local knowledge, and paying attention to detail were helpful .- Having established ties with local companies facilitated property inspection and selection of a firm to handle the closing.- Exhibiting a willingness to discuss anything related to the purchase including truthfully and reliably answering many questions.- Responding honestly when he (or staff) did not know the answer, but always following-up. - Advising when something was really not important so that time and attention could be given to important items.There is one word to describe the service and experience ... "super".
Carolyne was very knowledgeable and very professional providing us with all of the information we needed for our decision making.
She is a joke. She is the point person here in Bozeman for the FSBO community. When you use Owners.com to list your property, it is routed to Ms. Katz. She not only was incredibly unorganized and a poor communicator, but she was extremely rude and unhelpful. She claimed she could not see the profile we spent hours building on Owners.com, and we needed to email her all of the information. Then, when we asked for a few simple answers back in an email, she refused to do that and said she would reject our listing. She also explained this is a "cut-rate" service, and therefore, she does not do anything to help or further assist us because she makes no money on this. I guess we were supposed not to ask any questions and allow this incompetent idiot to get to our listing whenever she deemed fit, and with absolutely zero communication to the client. Her website claims: "Old Fashioned One-to-One Personal Service CUSTOMIZED for each Client." She told us she refused to do anything customized or outside of her process and then hung up. She is a liar and a cheat. Proof of that is on the first page of Google when you search for her. There is a Federal case with the US District Attorney naming Ms. Katz as the defendant in a case where she was found guilty. Bozeman deserves better than this washed up hack who is monopolizing and scamming the FSBO business.
Carolyne and Kim were very professional. They even helped me moved into my new home. they deserve a 10 out of 10.
Finding a house in Bozeman from Temple, TX, appeared complicated. My possibilities for being on the ground in Bozeman (with my wife) would be limited. I needed more than just help. I needed someone who would listen to my needs, be respectful of my budget, and who cared more about the best fit for us than the best deal for him. I needed someone I could trust, someone who was willing to do (more than) a little extra. When I met Tim Hart I sensed that I had found my man, and my experience with him over the past year have proved him to be the best agent I could have possibly had. My first encounter with Tim was through his website, one of the most most user-friendly sites I had found in my frantic searching. The website led to phone conversations. I finally got to meet him personally and felt completely at peace with his style. He is extremely knowledgeable of the market in this area and knows each neighborhood's distinct characteristics. After a couple of viewings he had an uncanny sense of what we were looking for. If we insisted on viewing a property that he was not optimistic about our satisfaction, his instincts proved true every time. And yet he was patient and NEVER pushy. He gave us the time we needed to make decisions that pleased us. We love our new place! However, finding the house we wanted was only the beginning. Perhaps people relocating across town have a much simpler time of transition and need little extra assistance. We were 1500 miles away and totally handicapped when imagining how to put everything together. Tim made it happen. First we had trouble with our mortgage broker. We had been approved through underwriting for a mortgage amount above what we were going to need. It seemed simple. But then the broker hit us with the news that they couldn't finance the home because it was a part of a condominium complex that was only 63% complete. The home is actually part of a duplex in a neighborhood with a broad Home Owners Association that functions as a condo. The final project will be the addition of more quality homes like ours. It didn't matter. We were stuck. Tim to the rescue! He got us in contact with a local bank's mortgage broker and everything eventually came together. He also managed the local connections for inspector, appraiser, blind contractors, and cabinet contractor (we had requested additional cabinets as a condition of sale). He even introduced us to managers of a couple of furniture stores and gave us a tour of The Ridge Athletic Center! An issue I would have never thought of for the inspector was a Radon gas test. Tim insisted on it. Good thing! Our basement had levels above the recommended level and Tim had us include a Radon gas exhaust system as a condition of sale. Now we are safe as well. Tim is a professional, but also a great human being. He cares about people and he works hard easing their load during the stressful times of transition. I have worked with good agents several times in Texas and Saskatchewan, but Tim Hart has been the one with whom I have felt the most comfortable. I feel like I am more than just a client. I not only have a new home in Bozeman, I have a new friend!Bill Fowler
After writing a review I received a phone call from Jaclyn stating how I have no life for writing a review that was the truth. I hope she hasn't gone after all the others that have stated their opinion on how their experience has gone with her. Its sad that she threatened to slander my name and talk bad about my child when she has never physically met either of us. The voicemail was very disheartening but proved my point in my prior review
