LYNN KENYON LAUE, Principal Broker
Lynn Kenyon Laue is a descendant of a homesteading Montana family. She was educated at the University of Washington, where she was affiliated with the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. She has an extensive business and marketing background. Lynn has owned and sold her own successful businesses; helped grow an interstate auction and antique company as the Chief Operations Officer; and helped launch and served as Editor of a national shelter magazine.
This diverse background has helped her recognize the significance of both local and global marketing and in equal importance, building solid and sincere relationships with contacts.
Lynn has bought and sold real estate, for profit, her whole life. She became a career Realtor in response to what she saw as a need for aggressive, professional, and insightful agents in Montana.
She launched Live In Montana Real Estate to offer a brokerage where agents are supported to succeed, with abundant leads, fair compensation and without a rigid, big-city format/franchise-driven mentality that prevents agents from closing sales, for buyers AND sellers. It has worked!
Personally, Lynn has a daughter and son-in-law who are both officers in the Marine Corps, a son who earned his Masters Degree in Divinity, another daughter who is an attorney, a grandson destined to be president, another who will win the Heisman and a granddaughter who will be Miss America.

My devotion to real estate began with a mother and father who built houses for a living. Growing up on a farm with three older brothers instilled in me a passion and commitment to be outdoors as much as I can. If I'm not showing or listing real estate, you'll find me running, bicycling, hiking, kayaking or just enjoying the beauty of the prairie and mountains. I'm honest, dependable, and have the utmost integrity. My hobby is writing children's books. My latest is a birding guide for young children written for my love of wild bird feeding, and wanting children to know that nature is a part of who we are. We do not live alone on this earth. We are a part of a bigger place...nature. Call me for your real estate needs... I won't disappoint you.
Brad is a "near-native" to Montana. The Air Force brought him to Montana over 35 years ago and he has called it home, since.
Brad brings an extensive background in remodeling and new construction, so he is a good resource for buyers looking to build or change a potential new purchase.
Brad hunts and fishes, so he truly knows which properties are the best for hunters and fishermen and women. He is a straight-shooter and will not advise that an area is good for hunting, if it is not.
Additionally, Brad has worked farms and ranches, so he recognizes good ground and good values.
Brad has a daughter who is earning a Doctorate Degree at the University of Montana, two talented sons who followed him into the construction field, a son who has won several Special Olympics gold medals and five "perfect" (just ask him) grand kids.
