Thank you for checking our web site and Broker profiles. We have been in the real estate business since 1987. I am know working as a Buyer's Broker only.

I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota and a property owner in Red Lodge since 1976. Since my start in the real estate business I have earned designations from the Graduate Realtor? Institute (GRI) and a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). I am also a Property Manager and a Resort and Recreational Specialist (RRS).

Living in Red Lodge has offered me and others the opportunity to embrace the outdoors, live in a small mountain town that welcomes everyone and to do things that matter.

Please contact me for your Buyer Broker needs. Sincerely, Jim Kadous, Broker, Coal Creek Realty

Jim Smedsrud, Broker/Owner

A native Montanan, Jim Smedsrud grew up in North-Central Montana on a wheat and cattle ranch. After graduating from the University of Montana, Missoula, with a degree in business finance, Jim spent 5 years in agricultural lending and appraisal before obtaining his real estate sales license in 1981 and moving to beautiful Red Lodge, Montana.

In 1987, Jim Smedsrud and fellow real estate broker, Jim Kadous, formed Coal Creek Realty and Property Management. Over the past 32 years, Coal Creek Realty has provided consistent high quality service to both buyers and sellers in the Red Lodge area.

Jim thoroughly enjoys real estate and is proud of his ability to develop successful long-term relationships with his clients. Whether interested in a vacant building site, residential, farm/ranch or commercial property, Jim treats his clients and their transactions with care and diligence.

When the opportunity for a break from work arises, Jim can be found with his family around the state of Montana or enjoying the expansive wilderness backcountry around Red Lodge.

Jim attributes his real estate success to his honesty, integrity, persistence and education, along with his expert knowledge of Red Lodge, Montana real estate. With over 38 years of experience as a Montana Real Estate Broker, Jim will provide his clients with professional and competent real estate expertise.

In November, 2019, Jim Smedsrud and his business partner, Jim Kadous, sold Coal Creek Realty to Tera Reynolds, a broker with the company for the past 10 years. Jim Smedsrud currently works exclusively as a buyer agent.

Tera Reynolds, GRI, SFR, Broker Associate

I am pleased to announce I am the new owner of Coal Creek Realty and Property Management. After working at the company for 10 years, the owners Jim Smedsrud and Jim Kadous sold the business to me and have decided lighten their work loads and work exclusively with buyers. I look forward to continuing the quality of service and professionalism Coal Creek Realty has provided for many years to come.

I am a native Texan, born in El Paso and grew up in a small town, Floresville, just 30 miles south of San Antonio. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a degree in Business Finance.

From there, I worked for Chevron Resources in their accounting department, first in Grants, NM at the Mt. Taylor mine, then in Sam Ramon, CA and finally transferring to Chevron Corp to work in accounts payable in the corporate headquarters on Bush St. in downtown San Francisco.

I moved to Red Lodge in 1991, working at Red Lodge Mountain in Central Reservations, then in food service as a cook and bartender. In 1995, I started Red Lodge Ski and Travel and operated that until 2001 when I went back up to Red Lodge Mountain to work in the marketing department and special events.

I have been a Realtor since January 1, 2008 and thoroughly enjoy it. I like helping people achieve their goals whether they are buying or selling, by providing good, timely information and advice. I specialize in homes and vacant land in Carbon County (Red Lodge, Belfry, Bridger, Fromberg) and have established relationships with other agents in the area to refer clients who are interested in property outside my areas.

I also have a property management business, Reynolds Rentals. While most of the properties are in Bridger and Red Lodge, I do have homes in Joliet and Fromberg. I look forward to meeting you and together we can find the right property for you.
