REP Space was originally founded in 2016 when a need for Real Estate Photography (REP) in the Great Falls and surrounding areas presented itself. Enrolled in the University of Montana College of Business to obtain her MBA at the time, Lindsey was eager to add a growing business to her repertoire while she learned.
In the early stages of creating the company, she set up a membership at Sam’s Club. When asked the name of the company, she said "REP Montana", receiving a puzzled look from the cashier. She repeated, REP Montana, like REP -space- Montana. And thus, as she received her membership card, with a designated business name of REP Space Montana. This became a running joke between Lindsey and fellow photographer, her father John, as they began their new careers as astronauts wondering what the future may hold.
In April of 2017, these plans were put on hold as Lindsey suffered a debilitating stroke and couldn’t work full-time, nor add a new business to the lineup while attending grad school. REP Space, the idea, lived on and has now taken on additional focus: 3D Virtual Tours.
