Thistledew Land and Ranch Brokerage was founded nearly 25 years ago as a result of my own personal love for the land and ranch business. Since then I have worked with a wide array of clients including multi-owned family estates, partnerships, corporations, significant development organizations and family cattle operations …completing thousands of transactions, including hundreds of 1031 Exchange transactions. It is a genuine pleasure to help clients buy and sell the properties they love.
It was my father whom instilled in me the value of hard work, old-fashioned values and ethics. As a well known excavator for over 40 years, he was commonly known as the “Dirt Doctor.” His experience gave me a real respect for land and land management.
Over 20 years ago I was exposed to the cattle industry and the beauty of Montana … it became my passion and my business focus. Today our ranch is about developing comprehensive, common-sense genetics that take the guesswork out of breeding decisions and land management.
My goal is share my years of experience, provide significant value and returns while enjoying fantastic relationships … to help you “BUILD YOUR OWN LEGACY”.
I was raised with Angus Cattle, worked hard and was free. As a veterinarian’s son I witnessed a multitude of desirable and less desirable agricultural management. My father’s mentorship has proved to be valuable and correct.
With an education in Economics and Finance I pursued a career as a stockbroker and homebuilder which proved highly valuable but unfulfilling. Land and cattle is where I belong. In building this Land & Cattle Company I served as a consultant to many purebred Angus breeders in Michigan, Texas and Montana and had the privilege to work with some of the breeds most dominate beef genetics.
My values foster love of land and cattle to provide a future for our children, our clients and ourselves. Our lifestyle and legacy of land & cattle runs in our blood.
My greatest value lies in my ability to identify with our clients’ needs and align property type and value to appropriately meet their goals.
