Relocating


Lanissa is by far the best agent and knows the Billings market (Real Estate in general) extremely well. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my real estate transactions, this was especially apparent after having to buy in a different state. I still found myself reaching out to Lanissa for her expertise because I trust her opinion and advice!

– Brittani M.

 

Last year we decided to sell our house so we could relocate to another state.  After meeting us, she helped us stage the home, figure out what to fix before listing, and paint colors.  We had our home listed and sold within 2 weeks.  She worked hard getting people looking at the home and listing the home on zillow with amazing pictures.  She did not stop there, when we moved she interviewed a few realtors for us and found us the perfect one in the new state!  We really appreciated that.  Lastly, Lanissa is a go getter, hard worker, very knowledgeable, kind, and truly cares about her clients!  We are very thankful we were able to work with Lanissa!

– Alexandria G.

 

We were very pleased to have Lanissa help guide us through the selling of our house and with her ability to get us the result we were seeking. We did a great deal of research on real estate agents in Billings, and after visiting with Lanissa, we felt that her approach and personality would best suit us. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and we relied heavily on her expertise as she has been very successful in getting houses sold. Lanissa was responsive to our needs and took extra steps to help stage the house and promptly addressed small concerns that arose during our listing. We appreciated how well she was connected within the agent community, and the passion that she had in getting us across the finish line. Thank you, Lanissa, for everything that you did! 

– Chris & Jen B.

 

Very competent and professional.  Highly recommended.  She kept us informed about all activity during the sale of our home.  She staged rooms within our home with her own furniture and offered valuable insight to further promote the sale of our home.

– Linda

 

We were so happy with Lanissa. She was up front and honest throughout the process. She responded promptly whenever we had a question. When unexpected things came up, she was professional and helped us to resolve every issue.

– Rich L

 

The Fortner Team is amazing, she was with us every step of the way. Very professional, knowledgeable always communicated with us. We are very pleased that we chose to list with her.

– Dan & Nancy H.

 

Lanissa is amazing!! We were in a crunch to get our house sold fast! We had multiple offers on day one! She is detailed, trustworthy and knows what she’s doing! She’s the best of the best and I wouldn’t trust anyone other than her to do business with in the future.

– Rachel

 

I had the pleasure of working with Lanissa recently when I was selling my home. I was consistently impressed by her in-depth market knowledge, unwavering commitment to client satisfaction, and remarkable negotiation skills. She provided timely updates, answered my questions with patience and clarity, and ensured that I was well-prepared at every stage of the transaction. Her attention to detail, from property inspections to paperwork, made the process remarkably smooth and stress-free. Lanissa artfully navigated complex negotiations, and through her positive relationships with other real estate professionals and her good reputation in the industry I was able to close a successful home sale. Beyond her professional acumen, Lanissa is a true pleasure to work with. She is upbeat and has a wonderful sense of humor. Her warmth, integrity, and genuine concern for her clients' well-being make her a trusted partner in any real estate endeavor. It's not just about the transaction with Lanissa; it's about building lasting relationships that extend beyond the closing. I wholeheartedly recommend looking up Lanissa Fortner with 4 Season’s Realty. With her by your side, you can navigate the real estate landscape with confidence, knowing you have an advocate who will always prioritize your best interests.

This is the second time we have worked with Lanissa on selling our home and I wouldn't go to any other realtor in Billings! Overall, our experience with Lanissa was excellent; she facilitated a quick sale and made the entire process incredibly easy for us. One of the best parts of working with Lanissa was her ability to expedite the sale of our home. She has a deep understanding of the local market and employed effective strategies to attract potential buyers. Within 24 hours we received multiple offers, which ultimately led to a successful sale. We were very impressed with her expertise in pricing the property right and marketing it effectively. Also, Lanissa was instrumental in making the entire process seamless. She was proactive in handling all the paperwork, coordinating with relevant parties, and keeping us well-informed throughout each step of the sale. Her attention to detail and organizational skills were exceptional. We felt reassured knowing that Lanissa was looking out for our best interests and working diligently to ensure a smooth transaction. Lanissa exhibited exceptional professionalism and excellent communication skills. She was always prompt in responding to our inquiries, addressing any concerns we had, and providing valuable insights and advice. I highly highly recommend Lanissa for anyone looking to sell their property. She proved to be an exceptional realtor to work with, for multiple sales for us. We are extremely grateful for her services and wouldn't hesitate to hire her again in the future!

– Katie B. & Thomas B.

 

Lanissa is outstanding at what she does. She has helped us buy and sell a house and I would never work with anyone else! She was always available to answer questions and be there when needed. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of buying and selling a house and will make sure her client's needs are met. You won't find better!

– Katie & Logan S.

Selling while out of State


Lanissa went the extra mile to sell a house for us long distance. She checked out the house, had her painter freshen up the front door with needed new paint and was quick to communicate with us on new updates. It was great to get her quick replies and advice on our many questions. We got 3 offers the first day! She helped us through the process as some unexpected issues came up in the inspections. We’re very happy with her attention to this sale-she made it easy.

– Anonymous

 

Lanissa has gone above and beyond for us, in the past with the buying process and recently with the selling process. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and willing to help in any way she can to get the job done. When we recently listed our home for sale with Lanissa, we did so from another state. She was able to provide referrals to local home cleaners, professional carpet cleaners, repair personnel, and other vendors we needed to get the home ready for the next owner. I couldn't be more pleased with her as a real estate agent!

– Kaycee B.

 

We asked Lanissa to sell our condo based on many recommendations as we live in another state. She is a wonderful person to have worked with! We really appreciated her hard work ethic, experience, professionalism and knowledge of the market. She gave us feedback of all our showings and would answer all emails/ texts almost immediately no matter what time or day it was.  Thank you Lanissa for selling the impossible! :)  Thanks for all your creativity, ideas and motivation. 

Highly recommended !!!! Goes above and beyond.

– Kathy W.

 

I highly recommend Lanissa for your Real Estate needs.  She is forthright and honest in her dealings.  Selling my home from out-of-state, Lanissa handled all the fixes needed to close the deal.

– Debbie H.

 

Lanissa and her team were fantastic in every regard. We were out of state, so she handled the sale of our home remotely - without a hitch. From preparation of the property for viewing through the closing, the entire process was smooth and effortless. Should the need arise, we will definitely use her services again. 

– Bob M.

 

Lanissa is a delight to work with! She is professional, knowledgeable and takes the time to ensure that you have a full understanding of what is going on regarding the sale of your home. If you are looking for a realtor that knows the market and goes above and beyond the call of duty....I highly recommend Lanissa! Our home sold before the sign hit the front yard! Thank you Lanissa...we appreciate you! You are the best!

– Debbie

First Time Selling


I was referred to Lanissa when I first was looking to buy a home. I had the greatest experience and was guided every step of the way with total transparency. I have since referred everyone looking to buy or sell a home to Lanissa for taking such great care of me and my family and for being so truly fantastic to work with. On top of it all, she sold my first home and made the process SO EASY for us during such a hectic time. My experiences with Lanissa have been tenfold above and beyond the best that I could have ever expected.

– Nicole V.

 

Lanissa is very knowledgeable about selling homes and the local market, she was very thorough in her preparation, as well as in her explanation of the current selling process. She was very patient with us. We had not sold a house and had a lot to learn. Once a potential buyer was found, she kept us fully informed regarding the offer and following negotiations. The electronic file management system she used was extremely convenient to use. Her negotiation skills helped us achieve the maximum dollar amount for our home. We highly recommend her for your home sale.

– Lance D.

 

Lanissa held my hand through my first home purchase a few years earlier. She then recently helped me sell it with the same enthusiasm, support, and patience that she had shown me from the beginning. Her desire to help people navigate and be successful in finding their ideal property is evident from the moment you meet her. She is transparent in her approach and has high regard for quality services. She even met me when I got off of work at 11PM to go over paperwork to sell my townhouse. I would refer Lanissa to anyone, especially family, that is looking to buy or sell a property.

Thank you for all of your help Lanissa!

– Lindsy

 

Lanissa was highly recommended to me from a friend, and I could not have been happier with her as my realtor. She was very professional, enthusiastic, and very experienced with the Billings real estate market. She made selling my home a wonderful and easy experience. Her expertise helped sell my home quickly and for my asking price. I absolutely loved working with Lanissa and highly recommend her to anyone and would definitely hire her again. 

– Katie B.

 

I met Lanissa when I was looking to buy my first home. I had looked off and on by myself and met other realtors after calling their agency to show me the agency listings. I wanted to find an agent that knew exactly what I was looking for and I was comfortable doing business with. People buy from people in my experience in sales and you want to have that trust from the beginning. As soon as I met Lanissa I knew she was going to go the extra mile because she knew right away what I was looking for. A few years after buying my first home I changed jobs and after a year of commuting back and forth decided I needed to be closer to work. I knew exactly who I wanted to sell my house and to find me a new home. I will not hesitate in the future to work with Lanissa. She is absolutely top notch and sets the bar very high in her industry! You will not regret working with Lanissa!

– Brent E.

 

Lanissa went above and beyond to help us sell our home. This was our first time selling a house and we had a number of questions. She was patient, answered all of our questions, and just incredible to work with. We really appreciated her excellent communication. She made the whole house selling process, which is normally quite stressful, a breeze. She is the best in town and we highly recommend her.

– John

Home not selling?


Lanissa was amazing to work with! She sold our house in 4 days after previously having it listed with 2 other realtors! She has exactly what it takes to get the job done- recommendations, great communication, you name it, she’s got it :)

– Kayla W.

 

She was our realtor while selling our house. She was the best. We already had our house on the market for a few months. Things weren't working so we decided to change our realtor. My husband and I did a little bit of research and decided to go with her. It was the best decision made. She replied to our call and text promptly. My husband and I always talked, if Lanissa can't sell a house then there is probably no one in Billings that could.

– Anupa A.

My listing languished on the market for a year before Lanissa got involved and took over the listing. Things began to happen immediately! Within a few short months the house had sold. I attribute the sale directly to Lanissa. Her professionalism, market knowledge, and her contacts in the industry all helped to finalize the transaction. 

– Andy R.

 

Although I listed my home with "good" realtors, a year passed without a sale.  When I listed the home with Lanissa, things began to happen.  We had the home staged, and Lanissa began marketing anew.  Within a few short months, the home was sold.  Thanks to Lanissa, I was finally free of that costly burden!

– eliahurio

 

I am very grateful to Lanissa for the excellent job she did selling our house. She was very professional and pleasant to work with. She gave us excellent advice throughout the process and was very resourceful in helping us deal effectively with some difficult situations with the buyers. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent. 

– Marian M. 

 

Lanissa helped pick up the pieces after our original realtor had medical issues. She did a wonderful job of finding potential buyers and walking us through the entire process of selling our home. Closing was greatly simplified due to her background knowledge and assistance through the process.

– Kelly H.

Estate Sales


We called Lanissa at a very tragic time in our lives.  We had just lost our father and when we contacted her she came over immediately and gave us an idea of value and what our options were when we decided what to do with his home.  Several months later we called her back and she was there immediately to help us get ready to list the home and suggestions on what to do to help sell it.  She knows her stuff, is truly a caring professional and was there for us every step of the way.  I highly recommend her!  We had a sale in a very short time and were very pleased with the job she did for us.

– woodytoby

 

Lanissa is our hero!! She sold my mother-in-law's house in January and the entire process of listing, pictures, and sale went flawlessly and so efficiently we never even had time to be stressed! Lanissa literally made the process fun for us all! We will definitely use Lanissa in the future.

– Bernice G.

 

Lanissa helped sell my father's home after he passed away. She had a professional photographer take pictures and did a market analysis.  We were able to list it and sell it within 2 weeks. Every detail was handled efficiently down to the closing. I highly recommend Lanissa Fortner as your Realtor. 

– Sherry S.

 

We had Lanissa sell our home and my Mom's home. She excelled in every area! She was fun and easy to work with. She has so much knowledge about everything to do with real estate. I feel like we both got a great price for our homes and they sold fast! She was super at negotiating with the other party and getting the best for her clients. I would highly recommend working with her!  You won't regret it.

– Carolyn J.

 

Lanissa was super helpful to my sister and I in a situation where we had inherited a property. We were pretty clueless as to how to sell a house in a city that we didn't live in and a house that was not in our name. She made the process extremely easy on us. She was available to answer questions and guide us through the process quickly. In fact she sold the house in 3 days!

– Stacey B. 

 

Lanissa was wonderful to work with. She was very responsive and knowledgeable in our Estate Sale. She connected us with a professional electrician, plumber, and garage door company that made our experience easier. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

– tuomi12

 

Lanissa is always 100% available and on point with her information and knowledge. I like to tell people she’s a plethora of real estate expertise. If you want your house sold and sold fast, hire her! She gave us the highest starting price point to sell our home at while other agents gave us price points at least $100k less and we used her recommendation and of course, sold for just under that! We were amazed :)

– Taryn R. 

 

Lanissa was great to work with! She sold our home and also my mother's. She got us both a great price and they both sold super fast! She is very knowledgeable in every area of real estate. She has a lot of connections and also great recommendations of people to hire to fix the things that show up on your inspection. She is fun and friendly and super hardworking. I would highly recommend you choose her as your realtor. You will not regret it!

– Carolyn

 

I had never bought or sold properties before. Lanissa Fortner was recommended to me. Lanissa and her team were awesome. They answered all my questions no matter how silly they were. They went to work immediately and they sold my place in twenty days. Coming from a small town that was unheard of. They also kept me well informed of who was looking and what they were doing. Awesome people!!!

– Joetta S.

 

When selling a home, an agent's job is to get you the most $$$ in the shortest period of time and see the deal through all possible missteps to closing - and that is what Lanissa did. We recently had to sell our mothers home so she also had to navigate her way through more than one family member, which she did successfully. Thanks Lanissa!

– Barabara D.

 

Lanissa went the extra mile in all sorts of ways to get the house sold in a timely manner. She was very responsive and was on top of every issue with the house and the sale. She offered insightful recommendations that made things easy and quick. She made it happen and we highly recommend her.

– Scott C.

Selling Your Home


From the initial listing appointment we felt comfortable and confident that Lanissa would be the best agent to list our home.  We were continually impressed with her knowledge of the selling process and ability to negotiate on our behalf.  We had a few hang-ups in the inspection that could have possibly been deal breakers, but she was able to deal with the other broker and kept our sale together.  We were very happy with her and will recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.

– Noah C.

 

 Great service and expertise. Lanissa strategically negotiated our needs and communicated with the buyer’s agent as an experienced professional.

– Dennis S.

 

Working with Lanissa to sell my home was a smooth process. From start to finish, she is professional, knowledgeable and on your side. I not only sold my home quickly, I feel like I gained a friend, in that she is so easy to work with. Her ability to point you in the right direction on decisions that must be made during the entire process is spot on.  I would highly recommend Lanissa to you for her direct advice, when I followed her guidance, my home sold.

– A. Renegade

 

Lanissa was a pleasure to work with and absolutely spot on in her valuation of our home.  Her photos and internet marketing of our home were masterful.  We were under contract in just under three weeks and her assistance was instrumental right through closing - she even guided us through the drama of hail damage to the property between contract and closing!

– C. Jennifer

 

Lanissa Fortner is amazing to work with. I was intimidated by the entire process of selling my home before I reached out to her. From the moment she stepped in the door to give me excellent and reasonable suggestions for presenting my home for sale to the day I closed, Lanissa made the process relaxed and easy, and it was also very fast! I have and will recommend her over and over to my friends in the Billings area!

– Jenny H.

 

Lanissa went above and beyond the call of duty!!  She was on top of every aspect of selling my home.  She has sold two homes for me and they sold quickly.  In my mind, she is the only realtor to use.  She is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, honest, and just a great person.  If you want your home sold fast for the best price or looking to buy a home and want a realtor that is looking out for your best interest, give Lanissa a call.  It will be the best call you have made!!!

– Brett S.

 

Lanissa was very knowledgeable about the marketplace and she gave me both prompt and accurate estimates on the value of my house prior to listing including an outline of what I needed to accomplish to maximize the value. She was very responsive and was willing to tailor both the type and amount of contact to my needs including getting forms signed when I was out of town through email.  I would highly recommend Lanissa to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their house, she made selling my house a very painless experience.

– Lee H.

 

She is extremely knowledgeable, responds immediately, and has great attention to detail. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She is straightforward, honest and dependable. She sold my house before it was officially on the market, which was important to me as I was in a time sensitive situation. 

– Chaslee S.

 

I totally appreciated Lanissa's responsiveness and professionalism. Lanissa is so easy and comfortable to work with, I have already strongly recommended her to several of my friends and acquaintances.  I was the seller of this property. Lanissa very excellently represented me and my interests.

– Grace F.

 

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lanissa. She was truthful and did what she told us she would do. She gave us good guidance so we could sell not only our daughter's home but ours also.

– jsjs

 

Lanissa was absolutely amazing to work with! The service & expertise she provided was professional & unparalleled to any other realtor we have ever worked with in the past. She helped us find a home we love! 

– Becky S.

 

We highly recommend Lanissa Fortner, her expertise and knowledge about selling our rural property far exceeded our expectations! She worked tirelessly on our behalf, and truly represented us; through all the ins and outs of the selling process; and made our closing an enjoyable experience! You will truly have a fun and enjoyable time with her! She is truly the best in our opinion.

– Brenda K.

 

We decided from other reviews to go with Lanissa for the sale of our home. Initially our contact was by way of email and we were surprised that she got back to us so quickly. Her prompt and energetic response was a great indication that we were dealing with a person who takes her profession seriously. When we met her in person that was all confirmed. It's rare to find a combination of professionalism and personality all rolled into one. She led us through the process well, and if she had an opinion that differed from ours she did a thorough job explaining why. This came into play as we endeavored to establish an asking price for our home. She also kept us aware of the next step in the process which was super helpful in simplifying what can be a complex transaction. Her honest and friendly demeanor makes it easy to ask questions and takes possible misunderstandings out of the equation. Of course she has tremendous knowledge of the market so you can bank on that expertise to benefit you in the end.

We will say this, if you are selling or buying a home you want Lanissa going to bat for you. She has energy and passion for what she does, and will give you the right advice, allowing you to have the best possible experience. That's good news since buying and selling a home can be highly stressful.

– Anonymous

 

What I loved so much about working with Lanissa is that I felt like we were priority and that she worked for the best interest of us! The process of selling our home was fast and simple. From day 1 she made it simple and we really appreciated the knowledge that Lanissa had in all aspects of real estate.

– Cyrina A.

 

A true professional lady that understands how to sell property.  She really understands how to stage a home for a quick sale including an open house.  I would recommend her as an agent to anyone. 

– Gloria B.

 

Lanissa was very helpful and professional in the sale of our home. She not only took into consideration our house but the landscaping and area we lived in. She was available day and night with the current details on our home sale. Showings were scheduled after hours and weekends. We highly recommend this fine Montana lady for any of your Real Estate needs.

– Betty S.

 

Working with Lanissa was the exact person I was looking for, direct and professional. On the ball and moved very quickly to list my house with beautiful pictures of my house that were not touched up, but professionally done and getting it SOLD!!!

I will not hesitate to use Lanissa for my next real-estate transaction!!!

– Brenda H.

 

Lanissa was an awesome broker; reliable, professional and she was on top of everything. We actually told her we wanted to sell our home and the price we wanted, and she took care of everything after that, leaving us to concentrate on moving. She very quickly brought us a full price offer. We’re so lucky to have found her as our Broker. She did her job amazingly, from start to end. Absolutely recommend her!

– Del

 

"Lanissa was absolutely the best to work with. She and her team had an intimate knowledge of our market, especially our specific neighborhood, that allowed us to price our home for a quick sale. Her recommendations, expertise and especially her responsiveness were amazing. I would highly recommend working with her."

– Cahd B.

 

"I cannot think of enough good things to say about our experience working with Lanissa Fortner. Over the last decade she has been our realtor. With the recent sale of our home, she proved yet again that she is the top realtor to work with. Her fierce work ethic and commitment to making sure that my husband and I were informed and comfortable during the entire process is a testament to her professionalism and in-depth knowledge of real estate. I felt like any situation that were to arise, she would know exactly what to do. Thank you for your dedication to your clients!"

 – Christopher & Rikki R.

 

Lanissa and her entire team at 4 Seasons Real Estate are amazing! They are prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. Lanissa and her team had my house sold within 24 hours of listing. Everyone was great from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend Lanissa for any of your home buying or selling needs. Lanissa is top notch! I will definitely use 4 Seasons Real Estate the next time I buy or sell a home.

– Kama

 

Lanissa was great to work with! Very experienced and answered any questions I had. She got me top dollar for my home and was very quick about it! Gave options and recommendations but ultimately let me make the choice and was never pushy! She always kept me informed to what was going on during the whole process. I would definitely recommend Lanissa to anyone for their real estate needs!

– Charlie P.

 

We highly recommend Lanissa for all your real estate needs! She not only sold our house within a couple days of listing, she sold it for way above asking! Her market knowledge and strategies are unmatched! We will only use her for all of our future transactions!

– Mike & Kelly G.

 

Just a great experience with Lanissa from start to finish. She brought great energy and perspective to the sale of a tricky house, and she helped us navigate a changing environment as interest rates jumped while our house was on the market. Her advice on pricing was spot-on, and communication was excellent throughout the process.

– O’Neil

Relocating to Montana


We were new to the area and unfamiliar with a lot of the unique ways of MT. Lanissa was very familiar with the areas around Billings and what the pro's and con's were to each. She provided us with the information we needed to make the best informed decision for our family. I was also very impressed with her overall knowledge about homes and their structure/electric/plumbing etc. She was able to find things at each home we needed to assess. Lanissa was very available and was able to work around my hectic work schedule. She will be my realtor of choice in the future.

– Bobbie

 

Lanissa is professional, personable, and knowledgeable.  We had challenging circumstances in our relocation & search and Lanissa handled everything in a manner that made the process seamless for us.  Lanissa has an incredible depth of knowledge that she freely shared and made us confident in our decision in an unfamiliar area.  We highly recommend that you engage Lanissa for your real estate search and purchase. 

– Carol P.

 

When me and my wife first moved to Billings, we didn't know one side of Billings from the other. But Lanissa took the time to tell us about the neighborhoods we were looking at (she knows Billings and the surrounding area very well) and me and my wife both felt that Lanissa worked hard to find us a home that didn't just work for us, but was a home that we loved. When we needed to sell our house this summer, there was never any doubt that we would list with Lanissa. She quickly brought us a full price offer, and just like when we bought our house, Lanissa was on top of everything and she made the whole process easy and stress free. Whether you are buying or selling, you will not find anyone who knows more about real estate, works harder (I sometimes wondered if she ever sleeps...) or makes the whole process of buying or selling a home go more smoothly. I highly recommend her.

– Digs S.

 

Lanissa was fabulous in helping us find our dream home! We are new to not only Billings, but also to the US! Lanissa was attentive to any questions that we had. She asked pertinent questions about what we were looking for and made our dreams come true! I would definitely recommend Lanissa Fortner to anyone looking to buy their dream home!

– Shannon H.

 

We worked with her cross country and when we arrived, she had everything set to go. She knew what we were looking for and showed us many different places. We found our place in 1 day. We love it! She is very knowledgeable and very nice. Answers questions very quickly.

– Janie K.

 

Lanissa was referred to my husband and I by a family friend. She was a great fit to help us find a Montana home. The Billings market was new to us. Lanissa was very patient and diligent in helping find a home that fit our needs. Once we were ready to make an offer she moved quickly and guided us through the process. She was honest and helped point out potential issues. As we encountered obstacles she remained positive and focused. Buying a home is challenging. She made the process much more enjoyable. Her big smile and personality left us laughing at the end of most conversations. We would definitely recommend Lanissa. She gives it her all to meet your needs.

– Carla K.

 

I have worked with realtors in the past, working with Lanissa opened my eye's to what a realtor was actually capable of. She will be my realtor of choice going forward.

– Bobbie

 

Lanissa is the bomb.com! She helped us navigate what should have been a very complicated transaction (halfway across the US, early occupancy) and it was all executed FLAWLESSLY because of her. She’s very personable, yet professional. It was a pleasure working with her. When we go to sell/buy again in the future, we will ask her to help us again.

– Hannah W.

 

We contacted Lanissa based on a referral from a family member who purchased a home with her the previous year. We could not have made a better choice. We were relocating from Southern California and Lanissa’s help along the way was invaluable. She spent time on the phone with us before our house hunting trip and spent as much time as possible showing us around for 3 days straight (she’s a lot of fun too!) Her amazing ability to help us focus on identifying our priorities helped save us a lot of time and effort. She was always responsive to our many questions and was available during our escrow when we were out of state for help with inspections, etc. We can’t say enough good things about her, and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!

– Jeff & Kathryn

 

We started working with Lanissa in July of 2021 before we were even sure we were going to move to Billings and just finished our home purchase and move in December 2021. From day 1 Lanissa was responsive, helpful, and overall just pleasant to work with. She knows the Billings market inside and out and wasn't afraid to give us an honest opinion. We moved to Billings not knowing a single person and Lanissa has been our number one go to for all things real estate and beyond. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home or relocate! 

– Hannah & Trevor B.

 

My stresses were off the chart with selling and buying in different states with a limited amount of time to shop for my new house. After my first phone call, Lanissa worked quickly to set up showings for my fast trip to Billings AND helped me find a more competent lender. Because the inventory was limited, she didn’t pull any punches and prepared me to be ready to make several offers before one took. When I found “the one” and after Lanissa counseled me on the terms, she submitted an incredible offer that was accepted without any counters. I was awestruck - my first and only offer was a complete success. Next, she worked diligently during the inspection, to make sure repairs were acceptable or satisfied. Lanissa is patient and has a sixth sense to calm a person with all the uncertainties and apprehensions associated with this wild real estate market. She is an extraordinary realtor and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house.

– Robin W.

 

Moving is undoubtedly one of the more stressful things in life, moving to a new state you’ve only been to twice with kids and a dog takes it to a whole new level! I remember when we moved with one child and a dog just 15 minutes down the road saying that we’d never move again due to the sheer stress of it all… well Lanissa made our whole experience this time around so easy and seamless that I no longer feel dread thinking about moving! With that being said, Lanissa also helped us find a home that is not only perfect for us now but will be a wonderful home that our family has plenty of space to grown into for years and years to come… no moving in sight for us! Communication was clear, concise and prompt every step of the way and so personable! We never felt like just a transaction, we felt like we truly built a friendship through the whole process! There is that saying “there’s an app for that” well with Lanissa its “I’ve got a person for that!” she put us in touch with the most amazing lender, homeowners insurance, inspector, roof specialist and the list just goes on and on! I know that if any need arises in the future that she has our back and will put us in touch with the right people! I couldn’t be more thankful that my random google search brought me to Lanissa and her team! Lanissa had glowing reviews and if the ones prior to mine don’t sway you to give her a call I hope that this one does because you won’t be disappointed and will likely make a wonderful friend in Billings like we have! Thank you again, Lanissa and team! 

– Heather & Alan W.



I moved to Billings and bought my home during an extremely challenging buyer's market. Friends highly recommended Lanissa after their buying experience. I was not 

disappointed! She was knowledgeable, encouraging when the search went much longer than hoped for, and easy to communicate with. I appreciated her objective insight and perspective and felt she truly cared about me getting the right house for me.

– Melissa L.

 

I recently relocated to Billings from Oklahoma and used Lanissa for my home purchase. I could not have asked for a better realtor, this was my 6th move and she is by far the best I’ve seen. Simply amazing, thank you Lanissa!

– Nick H.

 

I’ve relocated 5 times with my company and this by far was my best experience. Lanissa is hands down the best Realtor in any state I’ve lived in. She went above and beyond from before the move to make sure she knew what we wanted and tailored our trip to make sure there was no wasted time. I’ll be calling her to sell my home on the next move! Thank you Lanissa!!

In our year-long search for a home in the area, Lanissa provided us with exceptional market guidance, listening attentively and walking with us as our home priorities evolved. Lanissa is a consummate professional who delivers outstanding customer service with warmth and care. She is a delight! I affirm the highest recommendation for Lanissa and her staff.

First Time Home Buyers


Lanissa Fortner is a step above the rest! Her market knowledge and communication were top notch in the search for our first home. We felt extremely comfortable with Lanissa in our corner in the buying process - she filled us in every step of the way and provided us her expertise on all of our MANY questions Not to mention, she's so friendly and fun to be around! If we ever sell/buy again, I will be going immediately to Lanissa!

– MSalz

 

Lanissa went above and beyond what a realtor should have to do! She helped me a lot, especially being a first time home buyer.  I had a horrible experience with my lender and Lanissa actually helped me fix the many mistakes that the lender made. She is the main reason I am in the house that I am today. She was great in responding to my texts or emails even if I wanted to look at a house for the 10th time she never said no. She was able to show me exactly what I wanted and made my decision very difficult (which is a good thing). 

I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy. She is a great choice for first time home buyers because of all her knowledge in both the real estate and bank sides of buying a home.

– Amanda S

 

I was a typical first time home buyer, stressed and worried after hearing all of my friend's home buying horror stories! Luckily for me, I had a dream team to make sure that was not MY experience! Lanissa was always one step ahead of me every step of the process. I know she is a busy lady, but I always felt like I was her priority. It was such a great experience, I would buy a house every month if finances allowed it! I absolutely love my home and I know that even after the sale, Lanissa is one phone call away if I need her.

– Jill L.

 

Lanissa was amazing to work with, she made my first home purchase easy and worry free. I didn't know hardly anything when it came to purchasing a home and she was very patient and helpful in explaining anything I questioned. Very professional and positive, she gave me her honest opinion 100% of the time. Instead of just making another sale she made it her ultimate goal to get me into a house that I love. I will recommend her anytime someone needs a realtor. Amazing experience!  

– Curtis P.

 

Lanissa was great all around.  Being first time home buyers we really needed some guidance.  Lanissa was very quick finding new listings and setting up showings. Also, was very helpful at teaching us what to look for and problems that could arise. Our personal favorite thing was that she gave her honest opinion on everything. We really felt she wanted to find us a home that was right for us and wasn't just trying to sell us any house. Thanks Lanissa! 

– Cody W.

 

As first time home buyers we were very nervous but then we met Lanissa and she made us feel very comfortable and walked us through everything we needed to know. She went above and beyond for us and found us exactly what we were looking for. She worked around our schedule to show us the homes we were interested in. When we found the home we wanted she had an immediate offer for us to make.  If it wasn't for her we wouldn't be in the home we are in. She went out of her way for us to help with anything. If we ever had any questions or problems day or night she answered immediately. She made sure everything was done for us without any hesitation. She is very honest and trustworthy and made us feel secure that we could depend on her. She is the only Realtor we will ever have if we were to buy again in the future.

– Sondra B.

 

The exact moment I knew I wanted to work with Lanissa is when she told me, "I will show you any home you are interested in, but please know that I will be brutally honest with you about what I know about the property. At the end of the day, you are the one buying the house, but I won't let you buy something that you won't be happy with 5 years from now! :)" 

Even with a very busy schedule, Lanissa was very rapid with responding to any concerns I had and always kept my best interest at heart. She made my first home buying experience as stress-free as possible and every transaction went smoothly. She has a great upbeat attitude and personality, and I highly recommend her to anyone I know! 

– Jenna R.

 

I would highly recommend Lannissa to any one looking to buy/sell a property. She is very knowledgeable on all aspects of the buying and selling process. She was unbiased, professional, and most importantly very honest.  Unlike many other real estate agents I encountered, she was not trying to sell me any old house. She was out to sell me my perfect house. Although she is a very busy gal, she always found time for me despite my crazy schedule. I will be using her for all of my real estate needs in the future. Being a 1st time home buyer, this was a scary process. I couldn't imagine doing it without her confidence and knowledge. I feel fortunate that I was able to work with someone as genuinely talented as her.

– Nicole G.

 

I have recommended Lanissa to all my friends and family in the market to buy or sell. My experience with her was to notch. She set up multiple walk-throughs for every day we met. She was accommodating to my schedule, taking me to view homes in the evenings after work and on weekends - even holiday weekends. She was straight forward and always had my best interest in mind, even long term. She provided resale value, home structure, floorplan, remodel, and decor tips. She never forced a sale. She was patient and supportive of my preferences (and indecisiveness). When it came time to finally put an offer in, she met me at her office after hours to discuss how and what to offer and walked me through the entire process. She provided full support at the drop of a hat when it came time for negotiating and preparing a counter-offer. All of this was so important to me as a first time home buyer, to be walked through the buying process step-by-step. Within 24 hours of my initial offer, my house was under contract and 45 days later I was a homeowner. Lanissa didn't stop there. She was present during the inspection and the landscaping planning, making sure finalization of the sale was thorough and completed in a professional and timely manner. Even months after living in my new home, I can still call or text Lanissa with all my "first time home buyer" questions. I highly recommend Lanissa to anyone wishing to buy or sell their home.

– Sterling 

 

Made my first home buying experience a great one! She was able to use her numerous connections around the community to assist with any hurdle along the way. Always emailed or texted back promptly to any question or need. You can not go wrong with her as your realtor!

– Olivia R.

 

Working with Lanissa was a relieving experience! She made looking, and finding, our perfect home a walk in the park. Her and her team were prompt to respond to us via email/text/phone call and always remained professional!  As first time home buyers, Lanissa was excellent at answering multiple questions, explaining things for clarification, and giving top-notch advice. We HIGHLY recommend using her services to find your next place to call home!

– C. Northam

 

Lanissa was awesome to have on our side while purchasing our first home. She was patient and supportive of our pickiness, and as a result, we found the perfect fit. She brings a lot of experience to the table and always has your best interests at heart.

Lanissa had an outstanding response time on everything involving the buying process. Lanissa and her staff were very professional and just listened to all that we wanted in our new home. As first time buyers we really did not know what to expect, but Lanissa and her staff made us feel very comfortable and were quick to meet all our needs when it came to buying our new home.

– Mr. & Mrs. B

 

I can’t say enough great things about Lanissa. She ensured we found our dream home, and was available day or night. I recommend her to all friends and family looking to buy or sell their home. Being a first time home buyer can be overwhelming, but she made the whole process seamless and made us feel at ease.

– Kenzie L.

 

I can't say enough good things about Lanissa! Highly recommend her and her team. I was a first time home buyer and she did such a great job helping me through the process. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market, has a ton of practical tips on selling and buying a home, and is so responsive. She has a great sense of humor and is easy to work with. Could not be happier with the experience.

– Lynne W.

 

Lanissa and her team were remarkable! Being a first time home buyer they were with us every step of the way helping us with guidance and making sure we understood everything that was being presented to us. I would definitely encourage anyone thinking of buying or selling a house to allow Lanissa and her team to help them through it.

– Megan & Bryant

 

I was wanting to purchase my first property and Lanissa was the agent I was happy to have helping me! She was very knowledgeable and up to date on properties and their statuses. She always followed up with contact and held my hand through the whole process. Lanissa removed much of the stress and daunting unknowns that I had as a first time home buyer. She is professional and a true joy to have helping in a property or house hunting journey!

– Linsdy M.

 

I cannot say enough good things about Lanissa, she is absolutely fantastic! Lanissa is extremely knowledgeable in all facets of the real estate market! I bought a home with Lanissa as my agent in the fall of 2022. I had looked at buying a few years back (with a different agent), but this was the first home I bought. Lanissa was the best choice I made throughout the process. We looked in several different areas of the city and her knowledge of the areas was a huge help – from insight to what it’s like living in that part of town to thoughts on potential for resale value not only of the home but also within the context of the neighborhood. When viewing homes, Lanissa is incredibly perceptive, noticing things that most homebuyers and agents would miss. At all times she kept my goals for a home in mind when viewing and gave her honest opinion of each one. This was incredibly helpful as a new homebuyer to understand how certain aspects of a home can affect resale value. Beyond noticing the details of the current house, she is also able to see the potential in a home for future upgrades that will improve upon it further! All in all, I truly believe there isn’t a better agent around than Lanissa. When it is time for my next home, I will most certainly be using her again to list mine and buy my next one! Thank you for your hard work and dedication to help me find the perfect home Lanissa!

– Andrew M.

Downsizing


I worked with Lanissa for over 2 years until we found the perfect place for me. My goal was to downsize from a 2 level house to a mobile home on my own lot so I would be completely set for retirement. She never made me feel like looking for a mobile was not worth her time. Instead she saw me fulfill my dream and be completely debt free and that brought her joy also. She had the expertise to find the perfect heloc loan for me to be able to purchase my new place before my old place sold. I truly could not have done it without her. I would still be at my old house chained to a house payment and stressed out. Now I am so happy. I absolutely love my new home. It hit all the checklists and then some at a price that I needed. I never imagined I would have such a huge beautiful yard and love my place so much. THANK YOU LANISSA !!!!

Deb

 

Recently, Lanissa patiently walked me through the sale and downsizing of my home and the purchase of my townhome. I felt very comfortable asking questions of her and her staff. I consulted with her on and off for a year prior to making this move so I am confident of her skill, character, and dedication when I recommend her to you. 

– Betty

 

Lanissa was our realtor and what an amazing realtor! From the very beginning she knew just what our house needed and the type of buyer who would benefit from the purchase. She is honest and talks through all the details. My husband and I would definitely recommend Lanissa to anyone getting ready to sell or buy.

– Bev H.

Buying


We looked for our forever home for 1 1/2 years and Lanissa Fortner was phenomenal! She was great at sending us potential listings. She was great about getting us into properties as soon as possible. She worked around our crazy schedule. She answered every text, email , and phone call without making us feel like we were annoying. And when it came time to sell our home, she made it completely painless. Through the whole process, we made a great friend.

– Marianne P.

 

What can I say, Wow! Lanissa is a very professional and amazing realtor to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and made the process go as smoothly as possible. I never had to guess what was going on, she kept me updated and made the experience a lot less stressful than it could have been. I'll admit, I'm a needy person and she was always there to answer my questions, day or night.  She is also very honest and will keep your best interests and needs in mind, which was a reason I choose to work with a more experienced realtor like Lanissa in the first place. She is an extremely hard worker and will go above and beyond the call of duty to make you happy you decided to work with her. If I hear anyone talking about selling or buying a home, I find myself recommending Lanissa. Do yourself a favor and give her a call, I'm glad I did.

– MyMTHome

 

Lanissa is a great realtor, and we highly recommend her! She made herself available at any time, and responded to our requests quickly every time. She took us to see houses all over Billings, and met us to see the houses usually the same day we asked. We were new to Billings and didn't know the area very well. Lanissa knows the area extremely well and helped us find the perfect place to buy our home. She did all of the negotiating with the builder/realtor, and did a very good job. She dealt with every issue we had herself, and looked out for us the entire process. We couldn't be happier with our house, the area it is in, and our experience with Lanissa. She made our first home-buying experience a great one!

– Shelbie H.

 

Lanissa is incredibly responsive and follows through 100% of the time. She has seemingly unending energy and a very positive, “get ‘er done” attitude. You can tell that her philosophy is all about the client and their needs. I recall specifically saying to her at one point when she reminded me about a quality I had hoped for in a home, “wow… you remembered that?! I forgot I had even told you that!” Choose Lanissa and her team and you will never be disappointed.

– Jacki J.  

 

Having worked with multiple realtors in the past, Lanissa is a standout. She is incredibly knowledgeable about everything from specific challenges in various neighborhoods to the intricacies of the deal. Her no-nonsense attitude about business and getting us the right house was greatly appreciated. She was quick to steer us away from houses we liked but that she saw significant problems with, saving us falling in love with a money pit. She also was quick to research and return answers on any questions she didn't know the immediate answer to. She worked around our busy schedules to show us houses day, night, or on the weekends. In the end, we purchased a house where she was both the buyer's and seller's agent. That's not something we would do with just any realtor!! She still worked to get us a great deal and made sure every little concern was taken care of in the house prior to us moving in. Plus, she's continued to help us after the sale by putting us in contact with trusted contractors for improvements we want to make. This has been tremendously helpful as we're new to the community. We would happily recommend her to any of our friends, just as our friends recommend her to us.

– Margo S.

 

From house hunting to closing day, Lanissa can not be beat! Never too busy to answer a question, no matter how small. We let her know what we were looking for and even though it was a pretty narrow pool, she never quit looking. As soon as they hit the market she was on it. We looked at several properties and she was always flexible and willing to work with our schedule when needed. When it came to the property we ended up purchasing we actually looked at it two or three times first and she never batted an eye. We never felt like an inconvenience or like we were being pushed to make a decision. Awesome customer service, fantastic personality, 10 stars hands down!

– Misti K.

 

Lanissa was very easy to work with. I started my house search by myself and happened to call about a house and Lanissa was the realtor that ended up showing that particular house to me. Of course, the market was so hot that the house sold by the time we were finished looking at it. I had met and talked to a couple other realtors and was not quite sold on them helping me but Lanissa in a short time showed her experience and knowledge that I wanted. She also grasped what kind of house I was looking for right away and made it a lot easier on me. It took a few months to find what I wanted with the price I wanted but through it all Lanissa was very easy to work with. She is very straightforward and will make sure that she provides the best service to make sure that you are completely satisfied with finding your future home. She is an exceptional person and will be the first realtor I talk to in the future when expanding my horizons!

– Brent E.

 

Lanissa is great!  She went above and beyond to find us the home we were looking for.  She even went so far as to contact and set up a meeting with a contractor to get us a bid on future projects for the home.  This is our second house we have purchased using Lanissa Fortner as our Real Estate Agent, we will continue to use her in the future.

– Sage H.

 

Lanissa is so easy to work with! She made us feel extremely comfortable from the first contact through signing on our new home. She also showed us a ton of homes in a single day and was so patient with me when deciding a home wasn't for us within a minute or two, and having to drive miles to another property. The house we ended up purchasing was listed the same day she got us in to see it. If we didn't have such a timely and attentive realtor, the gorgeous home we ended up with wouldn't be ours! Highly recommend Lanissa to anyone in the market.

– S. Dickey

 

Lanissa Fortner is the most professional, knowledgeable, and personable real estate agent we could have found. She made the purchase so effortless on our part, and made herself available to us in the late hours of the night. She took such good care of us and continued to take care of us even after the transaction. She even became my 3 year old son's best friend throughout the whole process!! Lanissa is such a sweetheart and we would absolutely recommend her to all of our friends and family.

– Jaci P.

 

Lanissa worked very hard to find us just the right home, and it was not an easy task. We had a certain price that we were able and willing to pay but we were also pretty particular about what we wanted. My husband and I live in Deer Lodge and we were looking to buy in Billings, so that even added to the difficulty. Lanissa sent every available property to us and was very honest when it came to letting us know whether she thought it was what we wanted and the price was right. I took several trips to Billings and looked at lots of places and Lanissa was always ready and willing to show me properties and "keep looking" until we found the right one.Finally we did find the right one but she said it was overpriced, so she helped us deal on the house and eventually get it for what we could afford. Lanissa is very professional, yet personable, and really knows her profession! She was extremely helpful from the beginning to the closing and we would STRONGLY recommend her to anyone who was looking for property to buy. We are very grateful  that she was our "real estate professional" and she has continued to stay in touch with us over any concerns we might have had about our new home. If an occasion should ever arise again when we or any of our family need to buy property we will definitely call Lanissa Fortner! We consider her a great business woman and a friend.

– Glenda B.

 

Working with Lanissa was great! She was very prompt in returning calls, texts, and e-mails, even on the weekends. She knew the area very well and actually knew the exact street we were talking about when we gave her a short description of it. She recommended shopping around for loans even though we were already pre approved. That worked out very well because we actually got a much lower interest rate with the bank she recommended. I would highly recommend working with Lanissa and her team!

– kurlykat268

 

This was the second home Lanissa helped me purchase. Hopefully it won't be the last. I enjoy working with Lanissa and can always count on her to give me her honest opinion. Even though I purchased two different homes for two very different reasons, she was able to quickly understand what I was looking for and find exactly that each time. She is always available for any questions or concerns I have even after the purchase is done. I would definitely recommend Lanissa and I do plan on working with her again.

– John P.

 

Lanissa is a very professional and dedicated realtor. Lanissa goes out of her way to ensure purchasing a property is seamless and comfortable. Our family was very happy with her services, especially the number of homes we saw before deciding on a final location.

– Jesse & Mary N.

 

A co-worker recommended Lanissa to me after she helped him find his first home. We called Lanissa and she started sending us listings in the area we wanted to live in and in the price range we wanted. We looked at several different homes and she was always very knowledgeable about the property she was showing us and was always able to give reasons why the home was a good buy and reasons that might make it easy or harder to sell later on. I appreciated knowing that I could rely on her real estate experience when I finally found a house to buy. She gave us very good advice and we were able to buy our house at a price well below what it was appraised at. I would recommend Lanissa to anyone buying a home. She has gone above and beyond for us.

Lanissa and her staff made us feel comfortable in buying a new home. She was quick to respond and very professional. She was able to meet all our wants in buying a new home. She knew the market well and I would highly recommend her when buying or selling a home. :) 

– Lisa F.

 

Lanissa is amazing! She was able to show us multiple properties to compare to each other. Walk us through the buying process with ease. Follow up on questions we had to the seller. She is friendly and professional at her job. If you are looking for a house near or far Lanissa is the Realtor you need! Thank you for making our buying process the best!

– Erin S.

 

Lanissa was absolutely amazing to work with! The service & expertise she provided was professional & unparalleled to any other realtor we have ever worked with in the past. She helped us find a home we love & she made the process fun & hassle free!!

– Becky S.

 

My wife and I can not recommend Lanissa more highly. Lanissa is in a league of her own in terms of market knowledge. She was a blessing to have during our transition across the country. I think our home buying process threw everything possible at Lanissa. She handled it all wonderfully with such poise. She was patient, answered all of our questions, eased our worries, and was always available. Lanissa is refreshingly open and honest. We loved that she took the time to truly get to know us and what we wanted. She was not willing to let us settle for anything less than the perfect home, regardless of it taking more of her time. Furthermore, she has a wealth of resources and an amazing network of true professionals for every single step of the process from home loan, inspection, repairs, you name it. She was such a pleasure to get to know and work with. She made what is typically a stressful time, a very pleasant experience. Wouldn’t use anyone else!

– Jared B.

Buying & Selling at the Same Time

Lanissa had our house on the market for one week and it was sold! She showed us lots of houses with good options for what we were looking for! She helped answer any questions we had and was quick to respond!

– Robin W.

 

I cannot begin to describe how wonderful of an experience my husband and I encounter with Lanissa every time we work with her.  She is by far the most knowledgeable real-estate agent I have ever encountered. We were never left without a question answered, never doubted her responses, and knew we were in the very best hands we could be in EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. My husband and I approached Lanissa, simply weighing our options, not sure if purchasing a new home was the right move for us at the time.  She put our minds at ease and made the entire process easy AND fun.  Now, just a few months later, we are in our dream home and we couldn’t be more satisfied.  We love Lanissa and will forevermore, be devoted customers!

– Melissa S.

 

Lanissa Fortner is an incredible person to work with!! She understands the value of time and the emotion in buying and selling a home. I loved that she was available and accessible 24/7. Lanissa knows Billings and the market, she is direct and knowledgeable in every aspect of real estate. I truly believe there is not a more professional, hard working, or knowledgeable agent out there!!! Lanissa helped us sell our home and purchase a new home, we have had the experience with her on both ends of the spectrum, we don’t plan on ever selling this house but if we do it would be through Lanissa 😉.

– Christine C.

 

Lanissa is an excellent realtor. After our initial call she met with us very promptly to help us get on the right path to selling or home and buying a new one. She not only gave us lots of tips on how to prepare our home to sell but also directed us towards a wonderful mortgage lady. She is always very patient and knowledgeable when we had questions (which we always had a lot of).

After we finally got our home ready to be listed we had a full price offer within hours of the home going on the market. She helped us find our new home and negotiated a great deal for us. We couldn't be happier.  I can't say enough good things about her.

Lanissa helped us through selling our old house and buying our new house. Our house to sell was listed correctly and sold immediately. The house we bought had multiple bids and Lanissa helped us submit the winning bid.

– Ryan D.

 

Lanissa is absolutely amazing! She makes selling/buying so smooth. We have used her to sell and buy twice and I would never use anyone else. She is always available to answer any questions you have no matter what time or day. Amanda L

We first met Lanissa when we were buying our condo several years ago. She was great at helping us then.  When it came time that we were wanting to sell our condo, there was no question who to contact!  Lanissa was GREAT to work with once again.  She answered our 1000's of questions, was there for us during the roller coaster of selling/buying and always gave great advice in the sale and purchase of our new home!! She also was very patient with us and showed us numerous houses until we found a home we loved. She worked hard for and with us,  and went the extra miles for us! Great person both inside and out!!! Thanks Lanissa!!

Excellent agent. Advised us on what to do to our home before we listed it. Once we listed it, we had a full price offer within hours. Would, and have referred others to her. Made finding our new home fun and was very knowledgeable of the Billings market.

Lanissa is awesome! I used Lanissa as a seller then as a buyer and I can honestly say I have never had a realtor so knowledgeable, communicative, patient, caring and on top of everything daily. She is absolutely down to earth and full of fun energy. Seriously if anyone wants a realtor that looks out for her clients - she would be the one. Thank you!

– Michelle G.



Lanissa is an absolute joy to work with. She knows what she is doing and is there for her clients every step of the buying and selling process. Great personality and extremely knowledgeable. She surrounds herself with a pretty awesome team as well.

– Angie T.

 

Lanissa is AMAZING. She knows her stuff on all fronts and ensures you know what to do every step of the way. She’s professional, knowledgeable, extremely driven, quick to respond, and fun to work with! I’ve worked with Lanissa on several properties both as a buyer and seller and she does an outstanding job from start to finish. There’s no one I’d rather work with and I highly recommend her!!!

Building your dream home


Lanissa helped my husband and I buy our first home and helped us sell our home 7 years later in less than 12 hours of being on the market. She also helped us purchase the land we built our forever home and assisted us through the building process with LC Custom Homes! She provided us with excellent service both times she assisted us in buying/selling and often went above and beyond to help us. She excels in her communication skills and was a great asset in helping us get our home ready to put on the market and made the process seamless! We highly recommend Lanissa for both your buying and selling needs! She is a wealth of knowledge and goes above what is expected of her.

– Danielle B.

 

Lanissa is very responsive and that is what stands out to me, I HATE calling someone or emailing and not getting a response for days. Lanissa got back to me right away for every question I had, right down to where I needed to get a dumpster for my trash (we bought new construction). She is pleasant, honest and very easy to work with. I recommend her to all my friends and anyone that asks about home buying.

– Taleshia 

 

Lanissa gave us the best experience possible as our realtor on our new construction build! She was knowledgeable, thorough, prompt, and always looking out for our best interests. Her expertise allowed us to get the design and finishes we wanted by working with the builder to make it possible. Her tenacity ensured we were not being taken advantage of by the builder. She is the reason we saved money while getting our dream home. We are grateful for Lanissa for our first home build experience!

Lanissa has been my realtor for over 8 years. She has gone above and beyond many times for us. She knows everything you would ever need/want to know about real estate. I would recommend her to anyone (and I have)! She exceeds the expectations.

Lanissa helped us acquire land for our dream home in Billings. We are so excited to build on a beautiful 10 acre tract of land with an amazing canyon wall and a hidden spring. We are from out of state and were only able to visit in short increments, but Lanissa fielded all of our calls and questions and accommodated our limited time frame. Lanissa continued to work with us long distance and was extremely helpful, responsive, and supportive throughout the entire process. She was also very knowledgeable and skilled in the negotiations on our behalf.

Investments


Lanissa did an excellent job selling our 4 plexes this spring. She maintained constant communication with us and guided us efficiently through the process. Dealing with tenants to allow buyers access to their apartments is difficult and time consuming. It takes certain finesse to get their cooperation. She did it.

Sold a house (cash sale!) Bought 2 lots and helped me build my duplex! Best realtor/realty company ever!

– Jonathan C.

 

Lanissa helped us sell one house (pictures of the house were amazing) and recently helped us buy a rental property. She told us what to look for and was honest on what was a good fit for us. She’s very knowledgeable and you can trust her opinion, she goes beyond what you would expect. Honesty and integrity, that's Lanissa Fortner.

We have worked with Lanissa for the past 10 years on many real estate transactions. She has helped us purchase our primary home along with some investment properties. She is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and will go the extra mile. We have entrusted her with the sale of our homes and she has always been able to help us negotiate the best deals. We love Lanissa and will never work with anyone else.

Have bought 3 houses in the last year with Lanissa and each one of them went very smoothly.  She provides prompt service and is very knowledgeable about her profession and is more than willing to help at any time. I would recommend her to assist you in your home buying or selling process.

My husband and I were looking for an income property and found a suitable duplex for our needs. Lanissa encouraged us to act quickly since income properties sell fast. She negotiated a good deal for us with the sellers and everything was going smoothly. On the last walk through before closing, mold was discovered in the basement. She advised us not to go forward without getting the mold checked out for health issues and recommended a local mold remediation company. We managed to get it inspected and Lanissa negotiated a concession from the sellers to deal with mold remediation — all before closing the next day! She really went above and beyond the call of duty and we will use her again.

Working with Lanissa is fantastic!  She’s meticulous to detail and listened to everything I did and didn’t want in a property.  She was always available to show me the properties I requested within a timely manner and give me her professional opinion when requested.  She helped us through the paperwork with clear directions, following up as we neared deadlines, and never missed a beat in the whole process.  I highly recommend her and will be using her again.

Lanissa is extremely qualified in every skill necessary for a smooth real estate transaction. I have both bought and sold homes with her, and she made each process so quick and simple. She listened to exactly what I was looking for in a property and helped me find a new home that met my needs perfectly. She works extremely hard and is endlessly available to her clients!

– Andrea A.

 

We have both bought and sold a home with Lanissa and she was great each time. She always kept us updated on the process and was responsive to every question we had, even if it was late in the day. She understood our situation and genuinely wanted to get the best deal possible for us. She supported us through every step of selling our house and made the entire process easy. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!

– Jenna & Richard

 

Lanissa has been my Realtor several times to buy and sell. She always calls me back, or texts me back, even to simple questions. I love her personality and professionalism! She is the best to work with. She will work hard to find your dream home. She will also make sure you are taken care of from the beginning to the end of the home buy/sell process.

– Amanda S.

 

I was referred to Lanissa when I first was looking to buy a home. I had the greatest experience and was guided every step of the way with total transparency. I have since referred everyone looking to buy or sell a home to Lanissa for taking such great care of me and my family and for being so truly fantastic to work with. On top of it all, she sold my first home and made the process SO EASY for us during such a hectic time. My experiences with Lanissa have been tenfold above and beyond the best that I could have ever expected.

– Nicole C.

 

I first met Lanissa four years ago when she helped me buy my first home.  She saved me a lot of unnecessary difficulties due to her knowledge and expertise and honesty.  She is not in this business for the money, but rather to help everyday people get into the home that is right for them.

Now four years later, when I was ready to upgrade to a bigger home, I called the only realtor that I trust, Lanissa Fortner.  Anyone who tells me that they are looking to buy a home, I give them Lanissas number and tell them to call her because I have no doubts that she will take extremely good care of them.

– Teresa W.

 

Lanissa is a real human being with a huge heart and a fantastic work ethic. She has been our go-to-gal and highly recommend her... a true one of a kind realtor! When we were looking to buy a home, she listened deeply and found us just what we needed.  A few years later, when we sold that same home, she attracted the perfect buyer in a short period of time.  Lanissa is well connected to the Billings community so her people connections make deals happen!

– L. MacKinder.

 

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Lanissa and her team through several transactions over the past several years and every time has been better than the last! Lanissa’s experience of the market, paperwork, and negotiations is without parallel! She is quick to respond, knows her way around tricky situations and has the best personality! She and her staff make every stressful sale and purchase a fun and enjoyable experience. Even after the sale she is a phenomenal resource for anything related to the care or maintenance of your home. There is no one better to help you with any real estate needs!

– Darren & Katlynn W.

 

I can't recommend Lanissa enough! We bought our house with her in 2016 and sold with her in 2021. Exceptional service on both ends. She has great attention to detail and never leaves any questions unanswered. She does whatever it takes to make her clients happy, comfortable, and pleased at the end of the day. Most importantly, she's honest. She's not in it to just make the sale. She will make sure you're fully getting your money's worth as a buyer, and that your expectations in a sale are reasonable and achieved! You cannot go wrong with Lanissa on your side!

– Sterling W.

 

Lanissa has sold 2 of my houses and got me into one. She makes the process seamless and is there every step of the way. I plan on purchasing again in the near future and I will 100% use her for my realtor. I have been working with Lanissa for 14 years.

– Misty

 

Lanissa has helped me with 8 transactions to date and every one has been great! She is prompt and makes sure everything is clean and clear. Very professional and best in the business.

– Riley S.

 

I can't say enough good things about Lanissa! She has been an absolute godsend as our realtor, and she truly embodies everything you could ask for and more. Lanissa went the extra mile to get us the house we wanted and fought tirelessly for the best deals. Her knowledge of the real estate industry is IMPRESSIVE, and she's easily the best thing that has happened to us! From the get-go, Lanissa showed us that she genuinely cared about finding us our dream home. She took the time to listen to our needs, preferences, and budget, and she scoured the market to find properties that were just right for us. But what really blew us away was her determination to get us the best possible deals. She's a skilled negotiator who knows how to fight for her clients. Every step of the way, she had our backs and made sure we got the most favorable terms and conditions. We couldn't have asked for a more dedicated and tenacious realtor. She guided us through every aspect of the process, explaining things in a way that was easy to understand. Her attention to detail gave us confidence, and we knew we were in good hands with her. She makes the entire experience smooth and stress-free. Not only is she an exceptional realtor, but she's also a genuinely caring person. We can't thank Lanissa enough for everything she's done for us. She has earned our trust and loyalty, and we're excited to continue working with her in the future. If you're looking for a realtor who goes above and beyond, look no further. She's the best there is, and we can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you Lanissa!

Lanissa was great to work with! She sold our home and also my mother's. She got us both a great price and they both sold super fast! She is very knowledgeable in every area of real estate. She has a lot of connections and also great recommendations for people to hire to fix the things that show up on your inspection. She is fun friendly and super hardworking. I would highly recommend you choose her as your Realtor. You will not regret it!

Taryn R.

Lanissa is always 100% available and on point with her information and knowledge. I like to tell people she has a plethora of real estate expertise. If you want your house sold and sold fast, hire her! She gave us the highest starting price point to sell our home at while other agents gave us price points at least $100k less and we used her recommendation and of course, sold for just under that! We were amazed.

Johnson C.

We had Lanissa sell our home and my Mom's home. She excelled in every area! She was fun and easy to work with. She has so much knowledge about everything to do with real estate. I feel like we both got a great price for our homes and they sold fast! She was super at negotiating with the other party and getting the best for her clients. I would highly recommend working with her! You won't regret it.

Joetta S.

I had never bought or sold properties before. Lanissa Fortner was recommended to me. Lanissa and her team were awesome. They answered all my questions no matter how silly they were. They went to work immediately and they sold my place in twenty days. Coming from a small town that was unheard of. They also kept me well-informed of who was looking and what they were doing. Awesome people!
