Purchasing and selling real estate is a momentous decision and we take pride in offering the best experience possible for our clients. Here are some testimonials straight from some of our clients. We are so thankful for their support!
I have now purchased two homes and sold one with Chad and his team in the Jackson area over the past four years. Chad is unquestionably one of (and arguably the) best realtors I have ever worked with, and there have been quite a few in California, New York and Connecticut over the years. Chad knows his market inside out, takes the time to understand and know his customers, is a very good listener, gives straight forward reliable and informed advice and always put his client’s interest first, as opposed to just wanting to close a deal. I can recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone seeking to buy or sell a property in the Jackson Hole market.
My husband and I purchased a home in Kelly WY in June and at the time we were living out of state in CT. Rebekkah was extremely professional, had a friendly personality and was great to work with. She understands the market in the Jackson area and surrounding towns well and her negotiation skills enabled our transactions to go smoothly. At the time we made our offer on the home Rebekkah was away on a previously planned family vacation, however at all times she was very responsive, in communication and went out of her way to make sure the deal went through for us. We’d be happy to work with her again and recommend her highly.

This is our second time working with Dianne Budge from Jackson Hole Real Estate Associates. She helped us by a condo site unseen in 2014 (and she picked the best available, we were very happy with it). Just recently (May of 2016) she helped coordinate a purchase and sale, both closing on the same day without any delays. Dianne is very detail oriented realtor with genuine intentions to help her buyers find the right house. If it wasn’t for her and her team, we wouldn’t be enjoying our own yard and plenty of space in the new house. Thank you.
We were extremely pleased with the service. They knew and understood the current market and changing dynamics. They provided us the information and alternatives needed for us to make decisions on for setting selling price and choosing a marketing and negotiating strategy. The communications was terrific, using a variety of communications methods depending on the timeliness and technical issues involved. They were available and were working evenings when necessary to insure that we were not pressed for time when making critical decisions. They really work as a team and we would recommend them, without reservation, to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.
Dianne was great to work with as we bought a condo unseen via the internet and telephone conversation. She did everything we asked as far as helping us evaluate it without the benefit of an on-site visit until actual closing.
Buying from long distance without stepping into a condo was very nerve racking. Thankfully, Dianne guided us through every step from viewing, inspections to final check ups before closing. She always returned our calls, followed up on any issues along the way. If it wasn’t for Dianne’s expertise, our dream would not become a reality. Sincere thank you from our whole family.
What a great agent! Goes back generations in Jackson and thus knows everything about the local market. Always responsive. Worked as hard for us as any other real estate agent we’ve ever had. You cannot go wrong with this agency or this agent. We are very pleased.
Chad Budge is a consummate professional and has a depth of knowledge and experience in the local Jackson real estate market that is unmatched. If you are buying or selling in Jackson Hole; Chad’s team will provide you with the service and accountability you need to be successful in your transaction.
We worked with Chad off and on for over a year and he helped us to understand that the Jackson Hole market was changing, he gave a good perspective on value and as the market reached its bottom earlier this year helped us understand the importance of timing. His expertise, negotiation skills and clear communication made the buying process smooth and understandable. Chad works with his wife and daughter as a formidable team that gets the job done. We would definitely recommend the Budge Team for your Jackson Hole real estate needs
I would highly recommend that you choose Chad Budge and Rebekkah Kelley for all of your real estate needs. Rebekkah is one of the sweetest individuals I have met in Jackson. Just lovely if you ask me, she is honest and genuine in character and spirit. I think for them, it isn’t about the money so much, but about the person or the client, and their specific needs being balanced with what is available on the market. Chad and Rebekkah were forthright in all of their interactions with my husband and I. They were on top of it!!! Their local knowledge is insurmountable. They have excellent process expertise. They were immediately responsive to all of my very many phone calls and email inquiries, and they have excellent negotiation skills. They were able to handle my emotional states and the vicissitudes that come with buying a home and going through the mortgage/escrow process with grace and dignity. They are a great team. The most unique thing about Chad and Rebekkah is that we can still call on them for questions. Being new to Jackson, we have a lot to learn! Whether we would like a recommendation for a house cleaner, nail spa, a roofer, or a place to go for dinner, they are still available to us, and that is very special!

I have to say working with Rebekkah Kelley of Budge Realty throughout our process was truly enjoyable. She made the experience of finding our dream retirement home a reality. We conversed over the phone for nearly 3-4 months prior to our visit. Our original intention was to look for a piece of property and build down the road. Rebekkah knew the area so well and was able to give us a history of the area and a history of the property values over the past 5+ years. She found a home for sale that had the most magnificent view of the Grand Tetons. She found the comp history of the area, trends and found 5 other properties for us to consider. She worked hard in answering our questions and negotiated hard on our behalf. Thank you Chad, Dianne, and especially Rebekkah. Now we not just a house, but a home that we look forwarded to enjoying our time together as a family.
We are very excited about having a Jackson home place once again and want to thank you and your staff in facilitating that this would happen for us. It has been a real pleasure to work with you and you made this a very efficient, smooth transaction for us.
Dianne and team did a great job in responding and ensuring someone was always available when there was a question. Dianne was great about ensuring what the buyer is interested in, any nuances, not just in the home, but in overall interests to ensure the best locations were sought. This deal could have fallen off the rails several times if Dianne and team had not gotten involved. Very pleased with the efforts and attention to detail that Dianne et al provided. Should I pursue another property in the region, it will be through Budge Real Estate.
Michael was great to work with. He put in a lot of effort and research in the sale of our property. He’s respectful, honest, and gives good advice. And he listens—very important. Highly recommend!

We have worked with Michael Pruett on several occasions including purchase and leasing of commercial property. He is honest, professional and very knowledgeable of all aspects of real estate and marketing. He gave us a thorough overview of available property and was tireless in his search for just the right parcel to fit our needs. We have enjoyed his expertise and friendship for many years now and highly recommend his services.
I felt Chad & Dianne Budge were a great fit to work with for my husband and I from the very first introduction. They had a calm demeanor and a urgent sense to help! I was in very good hands and they are both lovely people to work with!
Dianne helped us find a vacation home. She was extremely knowledgeable, patient, prompt and honest. Early on, our interest shifted to a very different type of property than we had initially requested – Dianne handled that shift without hesitation. She was a good listener and provided very good suggestions based on our preferences and commentary. Dianne showed us only properties that interested us. No time was wasted looking at properties that did not suit us! What’s more is she clearly knows the market and different areas in and around Jackson very well. She and Chad managed negotiations between long distance “jittery” buyers and seller deftly. Dianne also did a terrific job of keeping the process moving from initial contract through closing. Thanks to Dianne we found our perfect Jackson vacation home.
The most professional, knowledgeable real estate person I have dealt with.

Chad has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Jackson Hole real estate market. His peceptiveness of our needs and skill in the price negotiation enabled us to buy a great home at a good price. I would heartily recommend Chad to anyone.
Chad and Dianne are long time friends of mine. I have bought and sold several properties with them. They are true pro’s and somone you can trust.
Chad was always available to answer questions and provide guidance. He is thoroughly knowledgeable of the area, he knew intimate details of each property we were interested in seeing. He is the consummate professional.
I had an inquiry about a condo in Jackson Hole. Dianne was very knowledgeable of the foreclosure/short sale process and was able to clearly tell me what to expect and why. Thanks Dianne!
I have worked directly with Chad and I can say that he is as knowledgeable and honest as it gets. He will make sure that your experience is worthwhile. I would recommend Chad and Dianne to anyone looking to buy or sell property in and around Jackson.
I highly recommend Dianne Budge and the entire Budge Realty Group team. Partnering with Dianne over the previous ten years while residing both out of state and locally, I have successfully completed three real estate transactions involving both land and personal residence. All three experiences were positive. Direction, opinion, communication, availability and follow thru all led to very smooth closings.
We had a great experience with Michael. We sold the property almost immediately after we put it on the market and got what we wanted for the property. We were out of state owners so Michael took care of everything for us as we prepared for the sale. I would highly recommend him and would use him again.
