Montana native, farmer's daughter, U of M business grad, Jeanie Konopatzke left her home state after college to work as a flight attendant with Braniff Airlines in Dallas. She later passed the CPA exam and worked in real estate accounting with the Trammell Crow Company before leaving her career to raise her family. They relocated to Montana and Whitefish in 2001 and Jeanie became a licensed realtor in 2004.
Jeanie has owned property on Whitefish Lake since 1991 and has gone through the home-construction process twice, building homes for her family. She has owned and managed rental property in the Flathead area since 2005. With her business, accounting, construction and property management background, she brings detailed knowledge and experience to her profession. Her repertoire of properties listed and sold range from small building lots to downtown bungalows, to lakefront condos and luxury golf and lakefront homes.
On the personal side, her four grandparents were pioneer homesteaders in northern Montana early in the 20th century, so her roots grow deep. Jeanie has three grown children ("MonTexans") in Dallas, Missoula and Whitefish who bring her joy! She is active outdoors as a skier, runner, bicyclist (riding up the Whitefish Mountain Resort on a beautiful morning is a favorite workout), hiker and is "working on" her golf game. She travels as frequently as possible and wants to see as much of the world as she can. She volunteers in many capacities around the Flathead Valley to give back to the communities she calls home.
In choosing a brokerage, Jeanie’s focus was to find a team with an exciting presence in the local and regional markets, as well as leadership whose commitment was to the highest standards of customer service and building a positive company workplace. Engel & Volkers was her top choice and she is proud to be their affiliate.
