Michele (McDowell) Ponessa grew up in Miles City, MT where she graduated from CCDHS in 2000. Michele went on to earn her Associate of Science degree, with an emphasis in Ag Business, from Miles Community College in 2007. After a few years working at First Interstate Bank as a teller, she transferred to Stockman Bank as a Commercial/Ag Secretary. Michele’s love for the outdoors finally made her pursue a career that would let her spend time outside. With that in mind, she earned her State and Federal Crop Adjusting Licensing in 2012, which allowed her to travel around the state of Montana, as well as other states, adjusting various crops. Michele’s family ranches south of Jordan, MT raising Black Angus cattle, while also raising irrigated corn and alfalfa in Kinsey, MT. Michele’s own personal experience purchasing real estate made her realize how important it is to have a realtor who is available at all times to answer tough questions and who is also willing to do the research needed to fulfill a buyer’s and a seller’s needs. Michele’s honesty, integrity, hard work ethic and knowledge of Montana land will help you find your perfect farm or ranch.
