The Team Behind Two Pines
Co-Owner + "Original Pine"
With a family full of self-starters and entrepreneurs, it was of course in the cards that an entrepreneurial future for Alex lay ahead, right? With a background in marketing and guest services, and a passion to learn and study pretty much everything she can, Alex knows what guests and owners alike are looking for when it comes to partnering with a property management company.
When she's not training others on the team about the art of "non-negotiable ambiance" that each rental must have for guests' arrivals, she's down at the river playing fetch with her two labs.
Co-Owner + "Original Pine"
When you partner with Two Pines, your whole mentality about guest services will change for the better because of this guy. Wes has an incredible background of property management and guest services from all over the country and has worked for world class resorts in Tellruide, CO and Jackson Hole, WY. Going above and beyond for owners and guests is truly what makes this guy happy. (You should ask him about the time several elderly ladies couldn't get the DVD player to work in a rental and after Wes showed up, they begged him to stay and watch it with them!)
Wes wants to be your first best friend in Big Sky if you're new to the area...lucky you!
Operations + "The Handiest Pine":
Prior to working with Two Pines, Jake worked on a guest ranch wrangling horses (and guests) at a AAA Four Diamond property in Colorado. We often call Jake the "flash" around the office because it doesn't take him long to figure out how to fix something, and once he does, he's out of sight. Jake and his wife Amanda love living in Big Sky and are looking forward to spending summer evenings fishing on the Gallatin River.
Operations/Guest Services + "The Friendliest Pine":
With 6+ years of Big Sky hospitality experience under her belt with careers at both Big Sky Resort and Spanish Peaks, Two Pines was over the moon when Hillary decided to join the team. Whenever a guest calls, we want them to speak to Hillary, first. Because chances are she's seen and heard it all. When she's not working or going for a run, she also volunteers on the Parks Committee, a part of the Big Sky Community Organization.
Hillary seems to be a part of some secret network that is 'All Things Big Sky' and knows about new fun events, new trails, places to eat here or in Bozeman and we love getting what feels like an insider scoop right in the office!
Operations/Guest Services + "The Savvy Pine":
Taylour has a degree in hospitality from the University of Missouri and experience dealing with guests and members while managing gyms all over the Midwest. We are excited to integrate more advanced systems for our guests and owners using her expertise in these areas and let's be honest, we all got really excited when she didn't bat an eye when we mentioned the acronym "SEO".
Growing up visiting towns like Crested Butte, Winter Park, and Keystone with her family, Taylour has a love for the outdoors (like all of us here at Two Pines) and has taken up her new lifestyle in Montana with vigor exploring as many trails and hikes as she can before the snow falls!
