Raised in the scenic West Boulder River Valley near Big Timber, Kebi enjoyed a multitude of outdoor recreational activities with her family amid the backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains. To this day, the time spent with family enjoying the Montana outdoors has sparked her desire to share her love for Big Sky Country with real estate clients from across the nation.
Kebi, her husband, Terry, and her son, Justin, currently own and operate a working ranch in eastern Montana, where they have a cow/calf and feedlot operation. In her free time, Kebi enjoys training horses and competing in nearby barrel racing events. She also enjoys spending time outdoors with family and friends hiking, fishing, and downhill skiing at some of Montana’s finest ski resorts.
Combined with her extensive knowledge and years of real estate experience, Kebi’s agricultural background makes her a valuable asset to both buyers and sellers of fine Montana and Wyoming working and recreational ranches.
