PollyAnna Snyder, Founder | Supervising Broker in Bozeman, Montana
As a seasoned real estate professional since 1999, my goal is to help individuals and families with the acquisition and disposition of real estate assets to meet their personal and business financial needs and expectations, in a discreet, secure and professional manner. I have had the privilege and pleasure of practicing real estate in CA, NC and CO, and am grateful to call MT, and its bountiful amenities, home for several years. I have five (5) primary convictions associated with my real estate practice: •Responsibility • Accountability • Philanthropy • Awareness • Education
In particular, the Pillars of my real estate business are founded on:
• Responsible real estate stewardship • Professional distinction & discretion • Philanthropy & compassion • Family, fun & humor • Authenticity •
I am thankful for both the successful and diversified sales experience I have garnered in both the residential and developer arenas, in various economic and demographic environments. Whether it is helping a family find a new home or secondary residence, or representing the community needs of a developer, I have had the fortune to experience much of what the real estate sales business has to offer. It is from this experience that my clients, both Buyers and Sellers, receive a breadth and depth of unparalleled, creative and strategic real estate sales knowledge.
Most importantly though, this whole process and experience is about YOU! Your needs, goals, desires and expectations are paramount, and I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.
“Give me 1% of your confidence and I’ll earn the other 99%!”

Ron Allen, Advisor | Broker
After a career in the mining industry, I decided to get involved in the real estate business. I became an agent in 2007 and a broker in 2012. I put my client’s needs first- it's something as important as a real estate transaction. I try to listen to the concerns of my clients and address their needs without complicating things more than they have to be.
I have been a resident of Montana since childhood, married to my high school sweetheart, father to three grown sons, and grandpa to six grandchildren. When not at work, I enjoy my church activities, family functions, trying to make par on any golf course, and enjoying all the outdoor activities this great state has to offer.
Amy Alvarado, Advisor | REALTOR®
For more than a decade, real estate has been my passion. After multiple out-of-state relocations, buying and selling primary residences, purchasing investment properties and hunting for second homes – I have first-hand experience in what it’s like to be a client AND what I want from an Advisor.
Buyers deserve an Advisor who not only listens and understands their needs, timing and circumstances, but also knows the market inside and out. My Buyers hear about things first, because in this market, you lose out if you don’t.
For Sellers, it’s all about pricing, timing, and procuring the most favorable terms possible. The goal is mutual – getting a “SOLD” sign in your front yard so that you have the freedom to move on to the next chapter of your life.

Tina Regnani, Advisor | REALTOR®
As an Alaska Native, I’m inspired by open landscapes, community, integrity, and good, old-fashioned hard work and at a young age learned to value travel and the exposure it provided to diverse cultures and experiences. While traveling the Rocky Mountains and finding the hidden gem that is Montana, it seemed only natural to relocate from the West Coast’s mountains and felt like coming home. Growing up with Fisherman and Builders taught me to enjoy the outdoors and provided me comfort in the world of both commercial and residential construction. My love of people instigated an education in Health Care where I learned about human dynamics, communication, and the art of listening.
After spending years acquiring Real property, working as the Property Manager of my own homes, and enjoying the exciting process that is Real Estate Buying and Selling, I now feel like a Real Estate industry veteran with solid foundations in First Time Home Buyer Representation, New Home Building, and the complex world of Buying & Selling transactions. With a long record of successfully guiding clients in achieving their goal of home ownership, my goal will always be to leave no room for error in your home purchase or sale.
Over the years, I’ve been grateful to have learned something new from each negotiating experience I’ve encountered and feel my Real Estate tool box is available to put to work for you, my client. Together we will make your needs and wish list the priority while experiencing plenty of fun along the way!

Jane Tecca, Advisor | Supervising Broker in Livingston, Montana
For 25 years Jane Tecca has been an ambassador for this region. As a full-time real estate professional, Jane has the expertise and market knowledge savvy buyers and sellers demand. Since 2005, Jane has leveraged her local insight to empower clients about the unique market of Livingston and Paradise Valley real estate.
Jane explains her history in Paradise Valley: "Over 26 years ago, I fell head over heels in love with a professional bull rider. This third-generation born and bred Montanan became my husband. When deciding where to settle down, Tony convinced me there was no better place on earth than Montana." Raised on the family farm, which was Homesteaded in the mid 1800's, in rural South Dakota, Jane connected with Montana's wide open spaces, ranching spirit, and rugged beauty. Paradise Valley has been 'home' ever since.
Tony and Jane's 'herd' includes three children, one granddaughter, several horses, and her Jersey milk cow, Meadow Muffin. When she's not in the office or out showing property, you'll find Jane in the barn. An avid rider, Jane actually cut her teeth in the brokerage business by buying her first team of horses as an eight-year old. Her stoic father, a rancher and auctioneer, nodded approvingly as she completed her first transaction.
Today, Jane deals full-time in her area of expertise and specialty, Livingston and Paradise Valley real estate. From investment properties to recreational parcels, ranches and everything in between, Jane has built a thriving business based on trust and hard work. "I can't imagine a more fulfilling job than helping clients find and purchase their own piece of the Big Sky State," she explains with a smile. When asked about her successful repeat and referral business, Jane explains, "It's all about delivering top-notch, personalized, and professional service to my clients."
