Fellow comrades striving towards the objective of helping people achieve their goals in Real Estate, truly incredible!!
When I joined Century 21 Hometown Brokers in 2006 I was young, new to Billings, and new to real estate. I was ecstatic to start my real estate career at a nationally recognized real estate company. I knew that being affiliated with a well-known and trusted brand would be crucial to my ability to survive as a new agent in a new town. I am still grateful today for the chance that C21 owner, Mark Dawson, gave me well over a decade ago. As a Century 21 agent I was given the training, tools, and support that I needed to grow into my career and to serve clients with the knowledge and care that they deserve. The real estate industry and market are constantly evolving and Century 21 remains a connected and progressive company both at a local and global level. But, if you really want to know what I like best about working at Century 21, it’s the camaraderie shared with our agents and staff! We work well together, support each other, and have so much fun, all while maintaining a little bit of healthy competition. My advice to anyone considering a career in real estate is do your research. Make sure the company you join will give you the training and support you will need to serve your clients well and have success. I love what I do and it doesn’t get much better than that!

Everyone who joins quickly becomes an immediate friend and integral party of our C21 family and it’s truly something special to be a part of. There is no doubt in my mind that there isn’t a better group of agents to work and spend each day with. Creating relationships with clients and learning something new every day is one of the rewarding parts of this career, and I can’t imagine doing this along side anyone other than my extended C21 family.

One of my favorite things when I am asked about Real Estate- is telling people I am a REALTOR® for Century 21 Hometown Brokers. My experience since joining this group has reached above and beyond what I would have expected. Onboarding and training, consistent support, opportunities to learn and grow, and the exceptional people who have become my “family” over the last 4 years- can only begin to scratch the surface of why I am proud to be affiliated with Century 21 Hometown Brokers.
I’ve been with C21 for about 9 years now. I moved to C21 because it was the number one office in town and I knew the owner Mark Dawson for about 30 years. The agents are extremely well trained and given an unbelievable array of tools to help them meet new clients and service the ones they have. The staff is amazing and always ready to help. With all the new technology coming its a full time job to keep up with it. I’ve never had so much fun selling real estate in this office. The energy and optimism is phenomenal. I can’t say enough about everyone here!!!
As soon as I walked in the door at Century 21, I was at ease. Meeting with Mark solidified my decision to become a licensed agent and gave me the motivation to make the switch. The office welcomed me with open arms and I was instantly comfortable. I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to work with a positive and family-oriented office. The training, mentorship, and ongoing support is such a rare find. The friendships that have developed by working along side other Century 21 agents of the past few years have made my career entertaining and so enjoyable! I wouldn’t have it any other way!
