This is the time of year when we all come together as Americans to celebrate that most precious of all gifts.  Freedom.  We get together for barbecues and fireworks and the waving of the American Flag. I can’t help but get emotional every time I am at a sporting event or other function and we all stand with hands over our hearts to recite the Pledge of Allegiance or listen to the Star Spangled Banner sung by young athletes.  There are truly no words to express the gratitude I feel for where I live and for those who have fought and continue to fight for friends, my family, and me.

In the spirit of Independence, the Iten Company is taking the leap to a new name! Retaining the same logo, the new name will be Flying Hawkes Real Estate. We at Flying Hawkes Real Estate are excited to represent our properties in a new and fresh light. We are grateful for the passing of the torch from Jane Iten who has been our mentor and long time leader in the real estate business in the Bitterroot Valley.

So here is to the Freedom of United States of America. The beautiful place where we have the freedom to start our own businesses, change the name of businesses, work hard, grow, develop and learn, share ideas, worship as we choose, and raise families.

We are grateful for are the support we have had in the past and look forward to a bright and exciting future as Flying Hawkes Real Estate takes off!
