Team: About Us

Expertise to help you find the right piece of land.


People don't talk about it a lot. But finding the right guide to help acquire or market your land makes all the difference in the world - from the time you spend narrowing your search for the perfect ranch or cabin land to the closing on the property and for the years (or generations) you own the land.

Our commitment is that we will use all of our expertise, which is considerable, since John has been doing this full time for over forty years. Many millions of dollars and thousands upon thousands of acres have gone into his professional education.  Aside from various professional and educational designations including law school at St. Mary's School of Law in Texas, and successful completion of hundreds of hours of specific real estate courses in Oregon, Texas, Washington, D.C., Utah, Florida and Maryland, also at the RNMI and Securities and Syndication Institutes, John has a wealth of personal experience in the transfer, acquisition, placement of water rights, road building, land development, optimal cabin placement, etc.; basically all phases of land acquisition on hundreds of separate beautiful properties.

"I have completed in the successful negotiation and sale of properties to Fortune 500 companies, foreign ambassadors and investors, as well as to first time buyers of ranch properties. It doesn't matter if you've done this many times and have invested millions of dollars, or if this is your first experience in cabin and ranchland ownership for which you've dreamed and for which you've saved for years , I will give you the same consideration and attention regardless.  Helping in the process is my mission and my joy."

Second, you'll want someone with the experience needed to know the local areas, economic outlook, market conditions, ordinances, water rights, mineral rights, access and easements,etc., etc. With my years of experience in the ranch land real estate market - I have the expertise and track record of success you need.
