Who's starring in Mountain Mamas? Meet Jackie Wickens and Trecie Wheat Hughes.
Mountain Mamas is being led by Jackie Wickens, a real estate guru. According to Pure West Real Estate, Jackie started helping clients with selling and buying homes in 2012, and specialized in residential, farm, ranch, and recreational homes. She has over 17 years of construction background. On the site, she states, "Attention to detail and my commitment to customer service are just a few things that drive me to accomplish my client goals. I approach life and work with sincerity, honesty, and compassion." When she's not working, she hangs out with her husband and two kids.
Trecie Wheat Hughes, also a real estate professional, joins Jackie in leading Mountain Mamas with her amazing eye for design and architecture. According to Christie's International Real Estate, Trecie has been in the real estate game since 2003 and is an "expert in the Historic Districts of Livingston and Bozeman."
Simply said: Its beauty. According to HGTV, "Viewers will be wowed throughout the season with custom design elements including a river rock tiled master shower, an outdoor living room complete with fireplace, and a media room with a vintage movie theater vibe." It'll be unlike most settings viewers are used to with other house-hunting shows. And more and more people are moving to Montana (over 35 million Americans are moving to the state every year).
"A lot of people dream of living in Montana. We help buyers moving here to get into their dream home," Trecie states. "But living in a place this beautiful comes with a cost. If you're willing to look at a property that has potential, the price drops dramatically," Jackie adds.
