Welcome to the Good Life on Flathead Lake!

I'm Tara Bowman, and I help current and aspiring Flathead Lake area residents buy and sell real estate in beautiful Polson, Western Montana!

I've been blessed to live in multiple amazing places in America … rugged, adventurous Alaska, where I've learned some serious survival skills … a hay farm in eastern Washington which taught me the values of hard work, tenacity and a strong spirit … but there is something very special about Polson. It was love that brought me here more than 20 years ago, and looking back, I could have never dreamed of living and raising a family in a place as beautiful as the Flathead Lake Area! 

Imagine waking up every day and feeling like you're on vacation! 

Montana is known for its big, open spaces. I guess that's why we call it Big Sky Country! Our beautiful lake, rivers, and breathtaking mountains bring outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world! 
There's so much to do and experience here! Skiing, snowboarding, snow machining, hiking … with mountain peaks over 9,000' - some staying covered with snow year-round - you know you're in the right spot to make the best memories!

Something else you'll notice quickly is how friendly and kind people are out here! It's totally normal to have locals wave to everyone they pass on the road, even if they haven't met you yet … it's almost like people aren't in as much of a hurry here and know how to enjoy the Good Life fully!

If you're like most of my clients - you might be dreaming about having more space, more freedom and more opportunities to live a more active, healthy lifestyle. Or perhaps you're looking to retire, and the thought of a peaceful place close to the lake connects with your heart and soul.

Whatever your lifestyle dreams and goals might be … I so love what I get to do and have the experience, connections, and skills to help you get from where you are to where you want to be.

Whenever you're ready, let's sit down and have a conversation and explore what moving would look like at this stage of your life … and how I can best serve you and make the moving process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible!

Welcome to the Good Life on Flathead Lake in Big Sky Country!

Discover the Good Life 
on Flathead Lake

Flathead Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi in the lower 48 states, with over 200 square miles of water and 185 miles of shoreline. The water quality of the Flathead is one of the cleanest in the world.

Public lands around the Lake include a National Wildlife Refuge on the North Shore, six State Parks (including Yellow Bay) managed by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (FWP), and nine Fishing Accesses managed by FWP or the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.

From swimming to fishing to whatever kind of boating or floating you're in to—motor-boating, stand-up paddle-boarding, kayaking or sailing—the exquisite waters reflecting snowcapped peaks, forested slopes and our wild blue sky are nothing short of stunning year-round. 

In the summer, roadside stands along the east shore offer a variety of locally grown cherries, apples, plums, and other fruits. 

Winter on and around the lake is a wonderland of adventure. For downhill ski enthusiasts, Blacktail Mountain Ski Area (just west of Lakeside) offers a family-friendly mountain experience with excellent lake views. Nordic skiers, snowshoers and snowmobilers enjoy numerous groomed and backcountry trails throughout the region. Even though the lake doesn't completely freeze over due to its size, ice fishing fun can be enjoyed on the bays that do freeze over. For a truly unique winter activity, try dog sledding.

What Clients Are Saying

"I have known Tara for several years and always knew if I was ever to buy property - she was the one I would work with. We established our budget and discussed our needs and desires, then went on the hunt! Tara worked hard and fast to get all the leads that fit our perimeters checking continuously because of how fast the market was changing. We were often the first to see new listings and were able to make decisions fast. We found our new home, and we never would have thought it even existed had she not been so vigilant. Her integrity played a big part in our success. When other agents were not as forthcoming with property information, she backed us up and covered for the unprofessionalism of others. Tara will always be our realtor, friend, and property expert!"
-Denise Davis
Tara is THE BEST agent you could possibly work with when so many other agents provide only the bare minimum. Don't work with Tara If you're looking for an agent that is hard to get ahold of, never responds, has to be asked multiple times and reminded about what you're looking for, and won't go walk a property with you. Tara has been so personable and genuinely cares about your goals and wants and dreams and goes above and beyond what most other realtors do. Selling? She promotes your property and brings interest very quickly. Buying? She does her research and finds all possible matches for what you're looking for, and makes time to walk those properties with you. Tara is the best real estate liaison one could hope for, and you'd be missing out if you decide to go with someone else. I have bought and sold with her immense help and would gladly do it again and every time.
-Kendric Hale
"Tara was simply amazing in her knowledge of the real estate market of Western Montana. She has boundless energy. We found our dream home and I must say that with her help it was one of the easiest negotiations we have ever had. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone searching for their home in Western Montana."
-Ande Stearns
"What an incredible realtor! Tara was consistently prompt, organized, well-researched, and strategic. Her marketing knowledge and follow-through are some of her her best strengths. Beyond her uniquely competitive professional traits, she is compassionate, resilient, and family-oriented. This is somebody you want on your team, especially during the difficult process of moving/ relocating to MT!"
-Colin Gruenfeld
"Tara is absolutely the best. When we first had contact with Tara, she was so attentive to our needs and really got to know us. She knew the type of home we were looking for and was always in contact with us when homes that came on the market that we might be interested in."
-Tom and Juana Branson

“I’m in love 
with Montana. 
For other states I Have admiration, respect, 
 even some affection. 
But with Montana, 
it is love.”
