It was corn, cows and hometown sports. That was the beginning for Brian Harms, growing up on a farm in small town Western Nebraska. After school it was off to football or basketball practice, but after that it was work. Till the fields, feed the cows and horses and help out any way you can. Although his Dad would have loved to have him return to work on the farm, his journey ultimately led him further afield. Like many in those small towns, he couldn’t wait to get away and make his mark on the world and that path led him wherever the adventure waited.
As a seasonal worker, Brian became a certified Arborist in Nebraska, a Fuel Operator in Antarctica, a contract specialist in Afghanistan and ultimately a trail worker in Glacier National Park, where for 15 seasons he built bridges, cleared downfall, dug in the dirt, fought fires, blasted dangerous snowfields and stepped on every inch of trails east of the continental divide. You name it he was on it.
Through much of his life Brian has been drawn to the small mountain towns. He has a genuine desire to be involved in the land of the American West. Brian has now settled permanently in the Flathead Valley of Montana where he aims to put his skillset to use in the Real Estate Industry.
In his free time Brian enjoys travel and a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, climbing, skiing, and hunting. He also has a passion for working on classic vehicles that have been in his family for decades, like the 57’ Chevy his dad bought him as a freshman in high school or the 62’ GMC truck his grandparents brought back brand new from California.
The values instilled in him by his family…honesty, integrity and above all hard work are the values that have led to his success each new place he signed on to work. Those same values he brings to Pfister Land Company. Not too bad for a small town kid from Nebraska.
