Merle Unruh's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Merle Unruh

    • Merle Unruh is a very professional, courteous and knowledgeable agent. He helped me sell my fathers house after my father passed away. I live in California and I was concerned about the distance. Merle made me feel as though I lived there. He handled everything and more. It was all taken care of by e-mail and phone. My fathers land property is closing in 2 weeks thanks to Merle. The people who bought it are from Seattle, WA. It is all being taken care of by e-mail and phone as well.

    • As a local attorney, I have been working with Merle and Montana Westgate for over 10 years. Merle's experience, knowledge of the Bitterroot Valley, and integrity make him my choice for either a Buyer's agent or a Seller's agent every time. As a Buyer's agent he is responsive, practical and never pushy. As a Seller's agent, he provides realistic guidance in setting asking price, excellent advice on property condition and how to maximize that price and he stays with the Seller from listing to closing. I never have to wait for a return call from Merle, never have to wonder "where is my agent" when I have properties listed with him. Clients I refer to him are universally pleased and impressed with the work he does on their behalf.

    • Merle has shown us multiple properties, all at the convenience of our busy schedule. He has been very respectful of the types of homes we wanted to see and did not try and show us anything that we were not interested in. He is currently helping us navigate buying a short sale home. He has been nothing but up front with information and guidance through the process. We are eagerly awaiting the day we get to move in to our new home.

    • We meet Merle Unruh thru a good friend while visiting from Alaska; Our first impression of Merle was very warm and welcoming. Merle helped us purchased our first property; Merle worked very professional with us ; he was also courteous and a very knowledgeable agent. Merle went above and beyond for us.. We were living in Alaska and he made it so easy for us first time buyers he took the time to explain everything that we needed to know answered all of our questions and he always did it with a SMILE!!! I'm PROUD to say because of Merle we are now living in Montana... :-)

    • Merle was amazing to work with. He was extremely patient. He took the time to show us every house that we were interested in looking at. He even took us back to some houses multiple times so we could get a second glance before making a decision. He is extremely knowledgeable of this area. He knew things we should be concerned about and gave us tips on things to look out for. I truly felt like he was there to help us make the best decision and find the right home for our family. Once we decided on a home, Merle was there to help us whenever any problems popped up with the appraisal, inspection, etc... He was always there for us and made sure nothing bad happened with the deal. He was on our side always. He is honest, kind, and trustworthy. I highly recommended Merle. He is great.

    • I cannot sing Merle's praises high enough! He went above and beyond my expectations. It was the first time I've ever sold a rural property and he was there every step and obstacle in the way. I am so grateful that he was recommended to me as I don't live in the area and didn't know any Realtors. You can tell he knows everything about real estate as he doesn't hesitate with any answers to questions that I had. I'm very grateful that he was able to help me with this transition.
