LAUREN AJA BOND
Home Building/New Construction
Lauren Aja Bond
I started my real estate career as an investor in 2005, owning and managing my 13 rental units. In 2007 I got my Real Estate License in California and began helping people achieve their own real estate goals. Starting my career during the "Great Recession" taught me how to do business by instilling in me a strong work ethic. In 2008, I started a Real Estate rehab partnership that bought abandoned properties and turned them into desirable homes.
In 2009, I decided to make a big move to Montana ...the Big Sky and fresh air were calling my name. I started my real estate business in Billings in 2010. I have earned the top production awards in my company, was honored by my association as Rookie of the Year, and have grown my reputation with my loyal, repeat clients and referrals.
After 8 years with Century 21, I decided to buy a building with a partner and start our own Brokerage, THE Agency Montana, focusing on bringing quality (over just quantity) to the people we serve. My business partner and I bring over 23 years of combined experience to our clients, and make serving, supporting and growing our community the concentration of our goals.
As a transplant (originally from Montreal, Canada, then California), I can relate to people who are relocating here, and give them a unique level of support and resources. I CHOSE to live here and do everything I can to support the health and growth of this community. I am on the Board and President of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Yellowstone County and Vice President of Billings Petroleum Club. I am a past volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Billings Chamber of Commerce NextGen, the West End Exchange Club, the Young Professional's Committee and Realtor Political Action Committee for Billings Association of Realtors, and past board member with the Billings Association of Realtors.
I represent home buyers, sellers and investors, and have experience with new construction and commercial property. I worked with one of Billings' premier home builders, Bob Pentecost, for 7 years, so have extensive knowledge with new construction. I own multi-family investments and commercial property.
I am a Billings Native and focus on what I call "The Unteachables:" unmatched work ethic, Montana integrity, and a passion for service. I have been a licensed Realtor in Billings for eight years and earned my Broker's license in 2015. I specializes in residential sales and investment property with focus on client education: whether it's your first or fifth home. I grew up here, am a Central High alum and have such a love for the Billings community. I volunteer with The Breakfast Exchange Club and La Vie and am currently serving as Chair for the Young Professional Network Committee for the Billings Association of Realtors.
