Max & Michelle Bailey

Managing Partners

Max and Michelle Bailey are a native Montana couple with diverse life experiences both within the real estate investment community and throughout other walks of life. They are very excited to join this new seller finance community and bring with them many unique life experiences that they hope will strengthen the community for years to come. They have raised 5 children together and are now the proud grandparents of two young girls.

Max spent 25 plus years as a Firefighter/Paramedic and he and Michelle developed a thriving rental property business along the way. They still buy, sell, and rent properties to this day. Michelle has a background in early Child development and ran her own business for many years before they came to the Call the Underwriter family. Michelle’s formal education is in Early Child Development and Business Administration. Her experience running her own business for years, coupled with her extensive administrative expertise make her an ideal fit for her role at Call the Underwriter.

Max spent a career as both City Firefighter and Military Firefighter. He deployed all over the world in support of military operations as a Firefighter with the Air National Guard. He retired from the city Fire department in 2016 holding the rank of Captain/Paramedic. He went on to become the Fire Chief in the Air National Guard Fire Department and held that position until early 2020. He recently retired out as the Fire Chief, with over 30 total years of service. Max loves to learn, and he has completed degrees in Fire Science, Paramedicine, and business finance throughout his career.

He began his Real Estate interests in the early ’90s as a licensed Realtor in Seattle Washington while stationed there in the Navy. Upon returning to Montana, he continued to work in real estate as a side business over the next 25 years, while working full time as a firefighter.

Never one to sit still, Max authored a book on Rental property investing in early 2020 after retiring from the Fire Department.

When they aren’t busy working, you’re most likely to find Max and Michelle at their family cabin in the mountains or hiking somewhere in the beautiful Montana outdoors.  If you like to talk hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, puppies or grand kids, you’ll find yourself right at home with Max and Michelle.
