My fiancĂ© and were recently engaged (vid) and as such, we started looking for a new place to be our own in the Missoula, MT area. Looking in the paper always seemed to offer dated listings and some newspapers favor some property management places over others which makes for a slanted view of what is available. The image that appears below is from the web application that I’ve been working on called Grūpthink. This is the results of users of the Missoula grūp rating some of these places. Just click on the image and you can see comments and ratings for the major property management places in Missoula. I found this to be the best resource to help me get started.

However, what I couldn’t find was a resource which listed all the different property management companies available with the necessary details such as the phone number, website, etc. In addition, some websites did not list their hours of operation so I had to call to find out. Hopefully this guide will help you out in your online search for the perfect rental in Missoula, MT.

I will list the top 10 in the order they appear in the Grūpthink topic as of Tuesday March 25th, 2008. Along with each listing you’ll find the phone number, a link to the address in Google Maps and a review of the listings on their website.

  • Garden City Property Management

    Address: 422 Madison St, Missoula, MT 59802
    Hours: Mon – Thurs — 8:30am – 5:30pm

    Sat — 9:00am – 1:00pm

    The listings are updated frequently and it lists them all in a very readable and understandable format. There are not photos available for every property and some of the photos are for other units. Overall it is a simple website that runs rather quickly. Ultimately, Bonnie and I decided upon this rental agency. The staff were helpful and friendly and the price was right.

  • Grizzly Property Management
    Phone: (406) 542-2060
    Address: 1601 South Avenue West, Missoula, MT 59801
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 9:00am – 5:00pm

    The website is usable and well organized. They have a lot of photos to go with their properties and good descriptions as well. However, you cannot view many different types of properties at the same time. You are, instead, confined to look at only 2 bedrooms or only studios. In addition, you have to click and look at a property to see what utilities are included rather than having them all listed out together. They have plenty of information about the company and the staff was friendly when I called.

  • Biterroot Property Management, Inc.
    Phone: (406) 549-9631
    Address: 414 W. Broadway, Missoula, MT 59802
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 8:30am – 5:00pm

    Online Listings: (link)
    This is another website that is well designed and quick. It offers photos for many of the properties as well as an easy to read and understand layout. Here, again, you are restricted to only looking at certain listings rather than viewing many. Overall, the listings are helpful and up to date and the staff was friendly on the phone.

  • Summit Property Management, LLC.
    Phone: (406) 549-3929
    Address: 500 N. Higgins Suite #208, Missoula, MT 59802
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 8:30am – 5:00pm

    When Bonnie and I were searching last year, there were many more properties listed. However, this is no longer true. The website is informative and there are photos of the properties. However, as of this writing, there are only 3 properties listed in the 2 bedroom residential section. Overall the website could use a face-lift but it works.

  • Lambros Real Estate
    Phone: 1-888-735-RENT
    Address: 3011 American Way, Missoula, MT 59802 (rental office)
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 8:00am – 5:30pm

    Online Listings: (link)
    The website offers some very detailed listings and the ability to modify your searches. However, you cannot look at only residential listings. You must choose a category of listings (1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, etc.) or include commercial listings in your search which is annoying. Overall, the website is pretty well done and very functional. The listings are usually full of detailed photos.

    The comments from the users of Grūpthink do not offer very good reviews of this rental organization. You can see what some of them had to say here. The person who I spoke to on the phone was helpful and friendly.

  • Clark Fork Realty
    Phone: (406) 728-2621
    Address: 512 W. Broadway, Missoula, MT 59802
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 8:30am – 5:00pm

    Online Listings: (link)
    This website offers a list of all the rental properties with a photo if one is available. Overall, the design of the site is a bit clunky, but the detailed listings are informative. However, like some other sites, you have to click into the listing in order to find out what utilities are paid.

  • Professional Property Management, Inc.
    (not to be confused with Professional Property Management Company)
    Phone: (406) 721-8990
    Address: 2685 Palmer Suite B, Missoula, MT 59802
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 9:00am – 5:00pm

    The first thing I noticed about the site was PHP 3 which, is a bit dated. However, the site is not too bad. There are photos of a lot of the different locations. However, the big gripe that I have, is that many of their listings have no vacancies. This means that while searching, you might see a perfect property in the list, only to click on it and find out it is not available. In short: don’t list a property if it isn’t available.

  • Caras Property Management (other site)
    Phone: (406) 543-9798
    Address: 125 E Main St, Missoula, MT 59802
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 8:30am – 5:00pm

    Online Listings: (link, link)
    The first problem is that they have two websites for the same properties. Both websites display errors on some of the pages. The listings do contain helpful information such as the average utilities, but then, it depends on what site you’re looking at. Overall, they should pick one website and go with it. Just have the other forward to one. Unfortunately, the websites alone make this property management company seem to be far behind their competition.

  • Missoula Property Management
    Phone: (406) 251-8500
    Address: 2809 Great Northern Loop, Missoula, MT 59801
    Hours: Mon – Fri — 9:00am – 5:00pm

    There are none. This is disappointing considering the necessity for most to utilize online listings for making a decision for a rental property. In addition, the site has visible areas and offers a great deal of information about the company, but little to do with their listings. In addition, the address listed on the site is not the address I was given over the phone (I listed the latter). Overall, you’d be better off giving them a call.

Well there you have it. The top 10 online property management places for Missoula, MT. I hope you find this guide helpful. If you enjoyed this post then be sure to subscribe to my RSS feed. If you would like your website to be listed here, then send an email to writer at

    Glad you like Bitterroot Property’s website — yours truly had quite a bit to do with that one.

  • Hi there,

    We appreciate you taking the time to create this web-site, however, I work for Missoula Property Management and would like to explain the reason for having two web-sites. We must have been in the middle of the transition when you created this site, which would explain the confusion. Our one and only brand new web-site is:, for future reference.

    Thank you,


  • john

    heres a few you are missing
    Prudential Missoula Properties
    Fidelity Management Services Inc.
    king property management (she sometimes has houses in missoula)
    Millenium Real Estate and Management LLc.

  • Wanted to let you know the link to Summit Property Management is no longer their website address. Their current website address is: I believe they’ve upgraded their website since this was published. This might be a good post to do an update about.
