Please summarize your long-term goals regarding your land:I am a licensed real estate agent hoping to find a buyer for this diamond in the rough. This property is not actively listed on any MLS, but the bank has given me permission to market this property to try to find a buyer. I would love to see this property put to use for local food production. We need more of that in Helena! I would be happy to connect you with local restaurants who may be interested purchasing your produce. A buyer could also operate the property as a traditional nursery.
