42,993 acres of land sold to date.

The good, the bad, and the ugly of a successful land sale. 
​Many successful closings helping Landowners meet their goals. The truth is, there is no low hanging fruit in this competitive business. It usually takes a lot of extra work before anyone can go to the closing table. Simply hanging a real estate sign on a fence is usually not enough. Since 1999, Mathew has chosen to specialize as an agent to Sellers of farm and ranch land. So unfortunately, he does not list real estate inside the city limits, just land. His clients have come to expect a high level of service. Helping landowners get a ranch prepared for the market is instrumental to a good marketing campaign and will affect your bottom line. He can help you through this complicated process. Something as simple as hauling off an abandoned camper left behind at a deer camp will make a positive impact to buyers. Getting your ranch exposed to as many buyers as possible is a paramount concern and Mathew happily encourages out of town realtors to bring their qualified buyers to see your ranch. Mathew will accompany everyone that enters your ranch and will not give out your gate codes. The nature of hiring an “agent” means having someone that will put your needs first. Too many listing agents these days will not even make an effort to meet with or show buyers your ranch. They will simply give them your gate code and say, “go help yourself”. This is a basic level of service that should be expected. So, hiring an agent that lives close to your ranch is so important for many reasons. The way I see it, if you are going to hire a Real Estate Broker and pay them 6%, make them show up and earn their keep.  

Have you tried to sell your ranch without much luck?
