“It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition”
– Henry James
In order to provide the services you truly deserve, we continually educate ourselves and are up to date with the current market, governmental and environmental issues, and trends. Most importantly; the history of the lands we deal with. Knowing what has happened with the land 100 years ago; is important, but easily gleaned by anyone with the desire to do a little research. Even then, the knowledge is cursory at best.
However, to know the specific details of what happened on that land in the last several decades you had to have been there…and we were! Our long term involvement in this industry and lifestyle gives us, in many cases, first-hand knowledge of the history of the property being considered.
Each of the Partners at Western Ranch Brokers have had lifetimes immersed in the land in one capacity or another. This immersion makes all aspects of land and natural resources, second nature.
LIFESTYLE & CULTURE
It is a lifestyle– a lifestyle that we did not choose, but were born into.
The Western Lifestyle is unique amongst other lifestyles and/or cultures in its unbreakable tie to the land. Land is everything to the Western way of life. It provides income and livelihood, recreational pursuits as well as spiritual contentment.
It is just as important to understand the financial aspects of Western ranch lands investing as it is to have the knowledge to capitalize on the recreational aspects of our Western Lifestyle.
It is just as important to farm/ranch investors today as it was important to our grandfathers and great grandfathers to make financially responsible decisions when it came to the land. We are dedicated to helping our clients make fiscally good decisions.
The weight placed on recreational pursuits associated with the Western culture has increased greatly over the years. We recognized this early in our careers. The accumulation of wealth, the mechanization of land management, and development of agricultural practices have blessed us all with more time to pursue recreation. It’s a strong driver in today’s land market. Again, we recognize this and want to extend our expertise in this realm to realize your goals.
This contentment is almost intangible. However, we know from decades in this business that when a balance is met between investment and recreational components of owning land, the contentment will come.
Knowing the history and the tradition of the land is a part of the Western lifestyle– creating a deeper spiritual connection to the land.
The Partners of Western Ranch Brokers have come together in response for a need in the market to deliver what is “right” for Buyers and Sellers of ranch land, as well as the land and natural resources that we are so familiar with.
We work together as a team of expert consultants to provide our clients, and the land, what they need and deserve.
