April 7, 2021, Whitefish, Montana: Forbes Global Properties, a curated consumer marketplace that connects discerning buyers directly to the world’s finest homes and the best-in-class agents that represent them, is proud to welcome National Parks Realty to its prestigious ranks. The residential firm was founded in 2003 by broker/attorney Jim Allen and has remained steadfast in its commitment to provide Montana real estate buyers and sellers with expert insights and local knowledge, in-depth market analysis, and superior transactional assistance.

Membership in Forbes Global Properties — an invitation-only consortium of leading luxury real estate firms — is reserved for only the 100 most elite brokerages worldwide. As the exclusive Forbes Global Properties member in Montana, National Parks Realty will immediately capitalize on Forbes’ engaged audience of more than 100 million monthly global visitors to connect, inform, and inspire high-net-worth potential homebuyers and sellers about the finest properties for sale in Montana, and around the world.

The site now includes such luxurious Montana residences as 516 Glen Lake Drive, a modern mountain home in Eureka with views of the Rockies and Glen Lake; 13592 River Run Loop, a meticulously renovated and restored Bigfork log home originally built in the early 1900’s as a summer retreat for the Copper Kings; and Snow Bear Chalet 3, a coveted slope-side location regarded among the 100 greatest places in the world.

“Over the past 17 years, National Parks Realty has had the good fortune to have been aligned with the finest agents in the Flathead Valley and beyond. They are focused on delivering quality assistance and care to buyers and sellers alike, with a commitment of care extending beyond the transaction to longstanding personal relationships,” said Jeff Raper, Managing Broker, National Parks Realty. “Being asked to join the Forbes Global Properties elite network of agents around the world is a testament to that dedication. We thank Forbes Global Properties for their invitation, and our agents for giving us this opportunity.”
