When I purchased the Iten Company in 2013, Tasha Nixon was already a part of the company. She had been an employee of the business and transitioned easily with the new ownership. Now, after more than a year working together, I don’t know what I’d do without her.
She is the voice you’ll hear if you call our business phone number. She is the one who begins development of each brochure and aids in the research of water rights, covenants, and taxes. She jumps at the chance to make a trip to the courthouse and is fascinated by all the historic documents that tell the story of each piece of land in the Bitterroot Valley. When you work with me as your real estate agent, you get the bonus of all that Tasha has to offer as well.
As a third generation Bitterrooter, Tasha is connected to the community in many ways and provides a wide breadth and depth of knowledge and experience when making recommendations or matching clients with new property choices. Although she earned her degree in early childhood education, she has a love for the real estate business and has thrived in her new profession.
She is married to a former professional baseball player and with their two children they make their home in Corvallis. She travels across Montana and Idaho for her teenage son’s baseball games and has seen all the beauty the west has to offer. But she confesses she breathes a big sigh of relief every time she arrives back in the Bitterroot “because I’m coming home. I love everything about living here.”
In addition to sports, her family spends time hunting, fishing, hiking and riding four-wheelers in the outdoors. Her first answer, if anyone asks her about moving to the Bitterroot Valley, is always, “It’s a great place to raise a family.”
This time last year, Tasha and I set some goals for the business and I’m happy to report that we exceeded every single one. We make a great, balanced team – while I’m full of energy and always on the move, Tasha is steady, calm and constant. While I often focus on the big picture, Tasha takes care of the small details. We’re both excited about the progress we’ve made with the Iten Company. We’ve taken what was good and moved forward. We’ve also improved, modernized and acted on our fresh perspectives and new opportunities.
So, I tip my hat to Tasha and the great working relationship we have. She adds so much to the business and to serving the needs of our clients. Like I said before – I don’t know what I’d do without her.
