Best Realtor: Chris Dunn
Montana Real Estate Brokers
2050 Broadwater Ave., Suite B, Billings, 406.698.3531, DunnDeal.us
Chris Dunn started her real estate career in 2003. From what she had heard, she thought it would be a good way to have flexible hours, be home more for her family and be involved in her kids’ lives. She soon learned that it wasn’t as easy as it sounded to make your own schedule, but she absolutely loves her job! It’s not just about looking at houses; there is so much more to it than that—negotiating, counseling, coordinating multiple facets throughout the transaction, truly being there for people. Whether selling or buying is the goal, she strives to do the best she can for each person. She tries to stay attentive to their needs while providing excellent communication during the process to make them feel as though they are the only one she is working with at the time. While not every deal stays together and not every transaction is seamless and easy, she thinks it is important to work well with other realtors in the industry to get those “dunndeals.” Everyone has the same goal, and that is to get to the closing table. She has to say that while she makes a good living doing what she loves—the best part is the people she meets along the way who become new friends.

Best Education/Learning Center: Rocky Mountain College
1511 Poly Drive, Billings, 406.657.1000, Rocky.edu
The story of Rocky Mountain College is really a story of three colleges. The first was Montana Collegiate Institute in Deer Lodge, which enrolled its first class in 1878. Shortly after classes began in Deer Lodge, Wesleyan College opened its doors in Helena. In Billings, the current site of Rocky Mountain College, Billings Polytechnic Institute began recruiting students from across the country at the turn of the century. The three schools became one entity in 1947: Billings Polytechnic Institute, which was to become Rocky Mountain College, Montana’s first and finest.
From its very inception in 1878, the students of Rocky Mountain College have been leaders. In 1947, the students petitioned to rename BPI “Rocky Mountain College.” They also took it upon themselves to accelerate the expansion of the College, and they even constructed the new buildings as a way of paying for their tuition. The sandstone rocks were quarried from the Rimrocks, and the campus rose from the surrounding farmland to become one of the best-rated colleges in the West.
Today, RMC students are not all that different from those of the past. Rocky Mountain College still attracts and produces leaders who make a difference in the College and their communities.
