December High Mountain Happenings

As we head into the final weeks of 2023, we wanted to share an exciting change with our clients and friends.
RE/MAX Resort Realty is sporting a new brand and a new look.

Our agency has enjoyed great success working under the RE/MAX brand, but when we sat down to evaluate what makes our brokerage special, we realized that our biggest asset is our agents, our longevity in the area, and the trust we’ve built with clients and neighbors over many decades in the local community.

Collectively, our team decided that we should have a brand that reflects our individuality and our core focus on providing world-class real estate services within the picturesque and thriving mountain resort communities in and around McCall. We are now doing business as Mountain Resort Realty. We have a crisp new website that highlights the beauty of our area and the specialized services our team provides. And of course, it includes a robust search tool so you can browse and daydream about all the beautiful properties in our local market.

We’re excited to sport this new look and style, but we want to reassure our valued clients that they can expect the same friendly and dedicated service we’ve always offered. Be sure to reach out with any questions on our new brand OR what’s happening in our area!


A series of storms hammered the area last weekend, dropping nearly two feet of fresh snow on the mountaintops. Both Brundage and Tamarack hosted Preview Weekends this past Saturday and Sunday, with their beginner terrain open. Another cold and snowy system is expected starting Wednesday night, so we’re all doing our snow dances and obsessively checking the resort websites for news of potential Opening Days!
