Meet Our Agents
I am Fourth Generation in the Helena area, raised on a Dairy farm near Craig, Montana along the Missouri River. I am a Capital High School Grad and after a year at the University of Montana, I joined the Navy to see the world. I did, but I discovered I missed the mountains, valleys, lakes and BIG sky. Moving back to Helena, I started a construction and real estate development company in five Montana counties, and developed 30 projects, including development and construction of three 100-plus room hotels, storage units, retail, commercial and industrial facilities. I am happy to share my knowledge and experiences to serve you.
I grew up in the Helena area on a ranch in Montana City. I have two children; Marcus who is six, loves animals, T- ball and chocolate chips cookies and Nicholi, my daughter, is traveling the world while proudly serving in our country’s Navy. In 2001 I moved to Butte where I dedicated 15 years to car sales management where I built the foundation and discipline to pursue business ventures such as creating and growing a multi property rental business that I continue to operate.
At the start of 2015 I moved back to Helena where I now passionately pursue real estate with my partner Heather Lay. Our experience has made us well versed in all aspects of Real Estate including residential, farm and ranch, and investment properties. We come together to create a very effective team that can help all unique buyers and sellers find the right choice for them in any form of real estate.
I enjoy all aspects of real estate and always continue to look for ways to expand and grow my book of business. I am very dedicated to my clients and work tirelessly to help them buy and or sell. I am available all days of the week to help you buy and sell property.
Raised in Central Montana, I love calling the Big Sky home and raising my family here. After studying at FVCC in Kalispell, I attended college at the University of Northwestern in St. Paul, MN and then completed graduate studies at Multnomah University in Portland, OR. But Montana always calls us back. I have worked as a Pastor, shortly in home remodels, and then in business management. I have unique problem solving skills and look forward to helping you find what’s best for you and your family in the real estate market.
Doris joined Avatar Realty two years ago following her retirement from St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation after a 16-year career. At the Foundation while raising money to help with hospital construction projects and especially to help patients and their families during medical crises, she became very familiar with the Helena community and all it has to offer.
Prior to working at St. Peter’s, Doris spent 18 years with the Montana Operating Engineers & AGC Training Program, training and supervising heavy equipment operators and apprentices. She learned all phases of construction including basic heavy equipment operating, plan reading, and understanding soils, compaction and grade, all things necessary for new construction.
Doris is married to Doug Schill, owner of Royal Concrete Construction, LLC, a residential building company that builds quality, affordable homes.
“I do not search for a lot of clients, but prefer to focus on just a few at a time. I truly want to represent you when finding or selling your home!”
