Emma Wickens, her husband, and their five children enjoy life together at their family ranch south of Winifred, Montana, close to the original Wickens Homestead established in 1911.
As a real estate professional, she looks forward to helping clients clearly define their goals and walking alongside them through making those dreams a reality. Whether the vision is small or large, careful consideration is always needed. Emma’s friends express how easy she can be to share ideas with, and she looks forward to listening and unpacking one of the most significant decisions of your life.
Emma is a native Montanan and has indulged in opportunistic outdoor adventures her entire life. She always seemed to find a way to be out riding horses, hiking, swimming, hunting, fishing, gardening, playing sports, and traveling down beautiful backroads of Montana country. After completing high school, she worked for the Forest Service during her summers as a firefighter, learning how to improve forest habitat by thinning out trees with the saw crew. From these experiences, Emma developed an unforgettable and profound respect and love for nature that helped shape her future.
In 2006, Emma obtained a bachelor’s degree in animal science from Montana State University. Shortly after graduating, Emma met and married the love of her life, Eric. They moved back to his family’s ranch, where they’ve been actively farming and ranching since. Eric conveyed goals for the ranch, including more holistic management practices, which aligned naturally with Emma’s congruent thoughts and goals. Their journey of ranch management exploration began.
While she never imagined she’d raise such a large family, it is what she considers her most cherished marker in her life. She loves watching her children grow up with an agricultural background and the instrumental benefits of attending a Class C school and a close-knit community. She hopes to impact her children while they observe her and Eric managing the ranch, connecting with others to build knowledge and their active involvement in their sphere of influence.
Painting has been a long-time passion of Emma’s. Much of her work illustrates Western art’s influence and Montana’s culture and landscapes. All aspects of life are threaded together, and painting is an outward expression of many things she loves.
The real estate industry can feel vast and confusing. Emma is motivated to assist clients with selling or obtaining real property that meets their needs. She is most excited to be a part of helping new landowners discover the numerous ways they can utilize their land, benefit from the natural ecosystem, and connect them with the resources to do so. Montana is an amazing place to live, raise a family, or build dreams while giving back.
Emma wholeheartedly believes holistic management and regenerative agricultural practices are the keys to creating healthier lands and animals and stronger local communities and economies. She hopes to inspire sellers and buyers through real estate to embrace land stewardship, making changes that better the wonderful state we live in.
