U N COMMON G R O U N D 1101 E Lyndale Ave, Helena, MT When you step through the front door of Uncommon Ground, it feels less like an office and more like a home. There’s a reason for that. Every element, from the raw timber trim and cozy couch in the waiting area to the warm greetings and smiles of the office staff, is welcoming and reflects Uncommon Ground’s most deep-seated values: hospitality, personal connection, honesty, dedication, passion and celebration. These values govern every aspect and interaction of the agents’ lives, both personal and professional, which makes this real estate brokerage truly unique and, yes, Uncommon. The business formed when five women grew tired of what they felt had become common in their careers as real estate professionals. They all kept coming back to this feeling that there was something lacking - that helping people buy and sell their homes should be more about the people themselves and less about cranking out profits. Piece by piece, the five owners created a real estate brokerage that would emphasize personal connections and sustainable relationships. They designed a brand that would reflect their intense love of the Montana way of life and built a business model that felt true and fair to all involved. After an exhaustive search, they settled on a location and took turns coming in on weekends to paint the walls and remodel the office with help from family and friends. In December of 2016, they were open for business and whole-heartedly helping clients in a way that felt right, from a place that felt like home. A few years in, Uncommon Ground has more than tripled in size, is on the leading edge of real estate technology, has agents in Bozeman and Helena, and together with their growing team has formed lasting relationships with their many clients. In addition to assisting clients buy and sell real estate, Uncommon Ground provides opportunities to experience Montana through a variety of facilitated tours including but not limited to hiking, biking, fishing and local brewery tours. They believe it’s important for those considering relocation to experience what Montana has to offer firsthand. They want to share and showcase the splendor and places that are so dear to them.
