Born in Ohio, Lance spent much of his childhood in Florida.  During his time in the area he had the opportunity to work in publishing in the scuba diving magazine industry.  While he loved the work, annual ski trips to Colorado made him long to have the opportunity to work in the mountains.  When the opportunity eventually opened for him to work in Vail he jumped at the chance.  Then in 2009, Lance received the chance to run the local paper, the Flathead Beacon, which lured Lance and his wife, Melissa, along with their four children, to the Flathead valley. 


While originally they thought the move to Montana would be a couple year adventure, their love of recreational activities, growth in involvement with the community, and overall beauty of Northwest Montana made them want to put down roots.  After a few years in the valley they found their perfect fit in Lakeside with the help of fellow PureWest agent, David Fetveit.  This home search allowed them the opportunity to film the pilot episode of HGTV’s popular Log Cabin Living and sparked Lance’s interest in real estate.


Lance’s open and honest style of communication paired with his knowledge and involvement in the area makes him the perfect agent to find your perfect fit within the valley.  His appreciation of the local community and desire to continually make our valley better is shown through his work with several local non-profit organizations.  He is the past interim executive director and current board president for the Glacier Institute, and has worked with the Samaritan House homeless shelter, North Valley Hospital Foundation, Glacier AERO and the Lakeside Somers Chamber of Commerce just to name a few.  His service on the board of directors of these organizations has allowed him to make many genuine and personal, connections throughout the entire valley. 


Lance is thankful to have the opportunity to live in Montana and eager to share with others what the mountain lifestyle has to offer.  He is a decent skier but wishes he could be better, and his golf game is average… but he does have fun!

Lance was very professional, a top notch realtor. He displayed exemplary customer service at all times. He demonstrated his professionalism in handling both the seller and buyer transactions by coordinating between both parties. I enjoyed working with Lance and the Purewest team. I look forward to running into him once I move to Montana in the near future and enjoy a beer with him.
