“If you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life”. This cliché is so true. I feel so fortunate that I have a career I love this much!
I’ve been selling homes in the Billings area since 2005 and am currently one of the managing partners of Metro Realtors LLP. I’m a full-time, full-service real estate broker. I have a bachelor’s degree in business, a supervising broker endorsement and hold CRS, GRI and SRS designations.
Ingrained in me is the need to do what’s right for my clients at all times. It’s not about the sale to me. It’s about helping my clients achieve their real estate dreams and goals…and hopefully making a client for life in the process. I genuinely care about my clients and do everything I can to ensure they have a successful, smooth transaction. I view the purchase or sale of a home as a project and myself as the project manager. I’m there to advise and help my clients at every step of the way. My greatest compliment is when one of my clients says, “Wow, you made that so easy for me!”
I enjoy that my career and personal life are so intertwined. On most days it’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins! I love spending time with family and friends (many of whom have also been clients) enjoying all this fantastic city of Billings has to offer. I’m a sports fan (an avid golfer and a die-hard Denver Broncos fan) and like to unwind by walking with my dogs in the beautiful parks and neighborhoods of Billings. I also enjoy remodeling, organizing and staging homes; hobbies I use often in my real estate career.
Here’s what some of Jalene’s clients have said;
—– “Working with Jalene was so easy and such a great experience. She gave us excellent advice on where to spend the money we had put aside for last minute improvements and she was right on point!! Knowing that Oct/Nov isn’t a hot market she helped us list and price our house exactly on point. We had numerous showings and had a full price offer in 48 hours!!! When we were out of town she negotiated with contractors on our behalf and pushed hard to help us close as soon as possible. We always felt like we were her number one priority even though she clearly had other clients. Jalene is extremely attentive to detail and hustles like crazy to make her client’s experience as successful and pleasant as possible. We would recommend her to everyone who is looking for a realtor who offers solid advice and is motivated to get things done!!”
– Angela & TK
—– “I had known Jalene Conlon in social settings. I had never worked with her in any business setting before choosing her to sell my home. I cannot think of a better person to have worked through this process. Jalene provided us with really good information to prepare our home. She offered simple straight forward suggestions and was not afraid to recommend things for us to do. She did a great job of walking us through the process and setting realistic expectations of how long it might take and how much we might get when selling our home. When we had an offer on the home, there was an issue that arose around my home having a septic tank. It could have caused thousands out of pocket to me or even jeopardized the sale. Jalene researched the issue and provided the lenders proof that it was not a necessity to connect to city sewer. (The new homeowners were fine with a septic setup but the lenders were not.) I would highly recommend Jalene to anyone. She is extremely professional and works hard for her clients. She always remembers that you are the customer and it is your home that is being sold. The issue that I noted above is proof that she is constantly working to learn everything that she can to better serve her clients. Most importantly, Jalene is someone that you can trust to do the best for you. That was the number one criteria for me in searching for a realtor.”
– Tim and Suzie
—– “I have purchased multiple houses in multiple housing markets over the years. I can truly say without a doubt Jalene is the most professional agent I have ever utilized. Her impeccable attention to details is only surpassed by her sixth sense of a house. If you are like me and are new to Billings, let Jalene find that house for you. No one knows more about Billings neighborhoods than Jalene and as we all know, location is everything. Do yourself a favor and use her skills. I guarantee you wont be sorry and you will also come away with the house you always wanted!”
—– “Jalene was absolutely fabulous to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking at buying or selling. We approached Jalene initially to help us sell our home and then when we couldn’t find exactly what we were looking for, she helped us purchase a lot to build. Our house sold very quickly and we were pleasantly surprised by how aggressive Jalene was with showings. She arranged open houses that were very helpful in the selling process. Jalene also managed to keep our crazy schedule in mind with small kids when it came to showing the house on short notice. She was very accommodating and we never felt rushed out of the house for a showing. Jalene was extremely patient, kind, knowledgable, and was always willing to meet and discuss options when it came to buying. There was never a bad time to call or email her, and we definitely felt like we were her only clients by her responsiveness and attentiveness. Knowing how stressful selling, moving, and buying can be, it was so nice to be able to hand everything over to Jalene and know that it would all be taken care of and done correctly. We just had to show up and sign on the dotted line when it came to closing. It was truly very easy and painless, which is exactly what we were hoping for.”
– Trevor & Kelsey
—– “We were very thankful for Jalene’s guidance and expertise when we bought our home last summer. As first time home buyers, we had many questions, some of which I’m sure were ridiculous, but Jalene answered every one of them with patience and knowledge. Throughout the home search, Jalene carefully considered the homes we wanted to look at to make sure they were in a good neighborhood, well built, and within our price range. We ended up buying a home that was still being built and Jalene helped us work with the builder, bank, and title company and everything was easy!”
– Jared and Alex
—– “Jalene Conlon is a wonderful realtor that strives to find her clients the perfect house. She understands that buying a home can be a stressful process but she quickly will put your mind at ease as she walks you through the steps. She takes the time to get to know her clients so she better understands their needs. My husband and I had an idea of what we were looking for but it was a rough one at first. She knew the right questions to ask to get us thinking. It allowed us to better identify the house we were looking for and it saved us time from looking at ones that really did not make sense. In the end, Jalene helped us find the perfect house and then walked us through the process. If you are looking for a realtor that cares and wants to see you find the perfect house…she is the one.”
– Ben and Kelly
—– “My wife and I have worked with Jalene twice (both buying and selling) and have nothing but praise for her. She has impeccable knowledge about all the neighborhoods of Billings, is always professional and prompt, and did an amazing job of understanding our needs and what we desired in a home. I’ve recommended Jalene to everyone that has asked me about real estate agents in Billings. She is top notch!”
– Jared and Rebecca
—– “We relocated to Billings a little over two years ago, a friend referred us to Jalene. After communicating mainly by phone and email, we travelled out for our first trip to Billings to look at homes. Jalene had a number of houses lined up for us to look at and was willing to stay out late with us on Easter weekend! We found a house, made the offer, etc. all in a matter of a couple days. Jalene was thoroughly professional throughout the entire process, dealing with stubborn banks, and even attended the home inspections for us. Jalene is always prompt, responsive and truly cares about her clients!”
– Scott and Sue
—– “I cannot say enough about Jalene. She is not only very professional but also makes you feel like a friend that you have know for years. She is always available to answer any questions, even small ones. She is by your side the whole processes and very appreciative of your business. I would highly recommended her.”
—– “Jalene has helped us purchase and sell homes. She is always very professional and easy to work with. She is very knowledgable about property values and has always been very honest in giving us realistic expectations as to property value and ability to sell. Our last home was an older home that I thought would be difficult to sell. Jalene did an excellent job at staging it and we had two offers within a week! I highly recommend her and personally would not use any other realtor.”
– Jerry and Michelle
—– “Jalene is the most thorough professional I’ve ever worked with, bar none! She has represented me in several real estate transactions over the course of the last five years, and what I know I’m getting with her is the peace of mind that she will be diligently working behind the scenes on my behalf, from a place of utmost integrity. Proactively managing the process, so that the experience of buying and selling is as seamless as possible.”
