Eliot Strommen, Senior Sales Associate
As a third generation farmer/rancher born and raised in Northeast Montana, Eliot's deep roots in agriculture meld nicely with his years of experience in a wide range of related and unique fields. He knows the satisfaction of soggy calves at weaning, combining a bumper crop of wheat, or having a morning dew on a heavy swath of hay. From his early years of helping with his family's auction business, to engineering, installing and selling irrigation equipment, even bowhunting on the Milk River, all add to his farming and ranching experience. When combined, these experiences give Eliot a unique and added perspective when it comes to evaluating land values and allows him to recognize those qualities in a property that help maximize its full value.
Eliot and his wife Penny have three sons, all born within miles of where Penny and Eliot were born and raised, and eight (soon nine) grandchildren. That explains his sense of community. He understands that after a lifetime of hard work and risk taking, finding the right person to represent and sell your farm or ranch is not a decision to be taken lightly which explains his determination and attention to detail. Northeast Montana may be the hottest corner of the state when it comes to relative agricultural land values. It is truly Big Sky Country ranging from good short grass ranches to traditional dryland farms, from pivots or flood irrigated ground, to river bottom land that may offer both agricultural value plus recreational opportunities. Every property has different attributes that appeal to different potential buyers. That is where the ability to "human network" really pays off and why having someone who can recognize and market those attributes is key when deciding on a Realtor to represent you.
Eliot's business philosophy is simple: listen to the client, assess and understand their needs, then help them realize their goals by providing a service that is Aggressive, Personal, Honest, and above all Confidential. Eliot is proud to be part of Jordan Land Management which has been successfully Representing Buyers and Sellers for over 20 years specializing in Farm, Ranch and Recreational Properties. So whether you're looking to Buy or looking to Sell enlist the services of someone who knows the country and understands the people that live in it, and just as importantly, knows the market. Feel free to give Eliot a call for a confidential assessment of your options.
