Home is the nicest word there is. – Laura Ingalls Wilder

Your advocate.

Margaret “Meg” Derentz is an accomplished real estate agent for almost 10 years and is licensed in both Montana and Nevada.

Originally from New York and a graduate from American University, Meg worked in Manhattan, Paris, Milan and Australia in the fashion and beauty industries before moving to Las Vegas, after 9/11, as president of an entertainment company prior to entering real estate.

Meg prides herself on excellent client service and attention to detail. She finds great joy in assisting clients finding homes they love. Her expertise is listening to what her clients want. Always a ready smile and prepared to serve your needs, you will truly enjoy working with Meg.

Whether you want a quaint vacation home or an exceptional luxury residence on the water, she thoroughly loves her work, and enjoys the fantastic people she meets every day – many of whom become her neighbors and friends. ‘Every day is a treasure hunt; you just never know what will happen when you go to work in the morning, and to me that’s very exciting.’ She brings a strategic yet personable approach to the home buying and home selling process. Drawing from years of experience as a business professional, Meg has built a reputation for her refreshingly friendly customer care and proven ability to help buyers obtain the best value for their dream home and to assist sellers to a smooth, stress-free sale of their home.

Meg’s key to success has been the result of her patient demeanor and dedicated work ethic. She knows how to listen, is generous in offering information, and her main intention is to understand her client’s needs and build a relationship that will last over the course of time. When orchestrating deals for her buyers and sellers, Meg is assertive and effective and a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients.

She has enjoyed calling Montana home for the past 6 years. The move was a true “Green Acres” experience as she said goodbye to high heels and her favorite designer changed from Chanel to Columbia.

When not assisting clients, Meg enjoys spending time with her husband and their two Labradors. It was her husband, Ken, who showed her the beauty of Northwest Montana and the exciting adventures to discover in this area surrounded by Glacier Park and Flathead Lake. She enjoys the beauty of the wildlife, kayaking, fishing, hunting, gardening, hiking, snow shoeing, yoga, entertaining friends and splitting firewood.

Client Feedback

When it came to us finally being able to buy our own home and first investment property, we were connected with Meg Derentz. With many realtor choices in the market, we were so happy to have found Meg – she not only does her job to the best of her ability, but her friendly and caring personality provided us with the trust we needed. She is very knowledgeable about the area, could educate us about the real estate market and investment properties, and was able to support us through the process of finding and purchasing our home. Even after a year, we are still in contact! It is her continued commitment to her clients through guidance and mentorship that has given us the confidence to realize our dream.

Meg Derentz, our realtor from Deaton and Company Real Estate, was certainly like no other. She definitely went above and beyond in making sure my husband and I found our dream home. Meg took us to every house we had requested to see. Every morning when we met she would have other houses that she had researched the night before that would meet our wants and needs. Meg answered all our questions and provided us with informational print outs of each home. I have never felt so at ease. Meg helped us find our dream home without any stress. Thank you Meg Derentz! We counldn’t have done it without you!

Meg was fantastic! We live on the east coast and did not know Montana well. Meg talked to us and gave us advice as if we were talking with a long time friend. She is a straight shooter and knows the details needed in real estate. She made us comfortable negotiating while across the country and confident in our purchase. Meg turned a stressful situation and made it easy.
