"We are the marketing team at Bozeman Real Estate Group here in Bozeman, Montana. As two Montana natives who work in a real estate office, we often find ourselves torn between the benefits and the drawbacks of Bozeman’s growth. We have a lot of conversations in our office about how expensive homes have gotten, how old Bozeman compares to new Bozeman, and how to survive a Montana winter. So we’ve started this podcast to share those conversations with you!"
