Ladd’s partner in founding L&K Real Estate, Big Sky’s premier brokerage and the largest independent brokerage in Montana, Ryan Kulesza cut his teeth in southwest Montana working six years of frontline for Big Sky Resort and its various hospitality offerings. Turning his attentions to real estate, Kulesza quickly became a rising star in the area, eventually overseeing roughly $800 million in transactions over the last 20 years, pocketing accolades such as top producing agent, number one commercial agent, selling volume, large development tracts along with producing some of the highest sales in Big Sky history to date.
Kulesza also holds the distinction of selling more commercial real estate in Big Sky’s Town Center than any other broker – a clear and indelible flag staked high in the community. Kulesza and Ladd take pride in a distinct understanding of the market that helps guide investors to make the correct investment at the correct time. As a real estate developer, this 20-year track record has yielded results exceeding 2.0x Equity Multiple for investors and has positioned the team to take advantage of the growing market.
