Ranch Real Estate Client Testimonials

“It is rare to find someone who has both a high level of expertise and goes above and beyond the work that is needed to get the job done. We could not be more satisfied with Dan Mahoney and his service and attention to detail. We highly recommend him to others and would have him represent us again.”

Sally, Montana River Lodge


“On behalf of Ney and myself, thank you [Brian Hartley] so much for all of your help with the listing and sale of our family’s beloved Ponderosa. We have loved the ranch as our family retreat. Most of our 13 grandchildren grew up with this as our forever family ranch. This was truly our “dream come true”. As you know, this was a very difficult decision to finally sell the property so we could fund the next 30 years of our retirement.

From the very first meeting with you and through the entire sale process, you have been the ultimate thoughtful professional. You were sensitive to our needs and desires and we could not have asked for a better communication process. Ney and I both were always comfortable with your analyses of our ranch value and the entire sale process.

Thank you for making this a professional and understandable process.”

Terry and Ney Dobkins


“A longtime client and friend needed ranch real estate help and I introduced him to Brian. It was an emotional decision for the family and towards the end there were a few unexpected issues. But Brian got the deal done and my client was very pleased. So was I. Thanks, Brian.”

Seller Rep, Elk Meadows Ranch


“Over course of two years, Latham helped us find our dream mountain home in Jackson Hole. We started with a blank slate and he diligently showed us around the valley. We toured many homes and ultimately were able to narrow our search to one property in Teton Village. He provided tremendous insight on value, pros/cons and future enhancement potential, etc. Best of all, many of these meetings were held on the chair lift! Thank you Latham!”

J. Mishurda, Wyoming Buyer


“If you are considering purchasing a ranch in Montana, Idaho or Wyoming we can’t say enough great things about Jeff Shouse. Jeff is one of the smartest, driven and honorable people I know.  When he’s negotiating on your behalf he is firm, but fair, and delivers results.  Jeff’s knowledge and insight of ranches is phenomenal and his ability to keep transactions on track and moving forward is world class.  Jeff started out as our broker and quickly became a trusted advisor and friend.  Thank you Jeff for helping us find and buy our dream ranch!”

Ben and Liz Little, ST Bar Ranch


“On behalf of the whole Carter family, I want to express our appreciation for the wonderful way in which Tate and Matt handled the sale of the Soda Springs Ranch. There are so many details and legal things that needed to be done and you guys Were totally on top of it. I have had discussions with the new owner and they seem to be a wonderful ranch family that will enjoy the ranch hopefully as much as our family has in the past. Thank you very much.”

Elizabeth Smith, Carter Ranch


“Ryland has proven to be an exceptional real estate broker with many facets of ranch property experience. From the first day, we unexpectedly crossed paths, I knew he was a genuine and respectful human being.  I have worked with many real estate companies and realtors and have never experienced the professionalism and attention to detail I received from the team at Live Water Properties.

Being a recently divorced lady, I also felt from day one, Ryland had my best interest at heart and was only striving to put an awesome business deal together for me but not without maintaining our strong friendship in the end and making sure I was completely happy and comfortable with the sale.

I have recommended LWP to numerous friends and will continue to do so in the future.”

Marlene Stanley, Stanley Ranch


“I highly recommend Dan Mahoney at Live Water Properties in Missoula, Montana!  Our sale involved three owners (5 individuals including spouses) involved in the process, and none of us live in Montana.  Add to that the pandemic of 2020, which officially arrived about three months after we listed.  What could go wrong?  Nothing!  Dan took everything in stride, kept us all focused on the issue at hand, and professionally guided us through the offers, counter offers, disclosures, and closing to a successful sale!  He always responded to questions in a very timely manner.  He was focused on our transaction, and made me feel like we were his only client. I plan to go meet him in person when I visit the area because I now have a new friend in Montana.”

Virginia Dodge, Seller of the Mielke Farm


” Our entire experience of Tate Jarry and of successfully selling our property in Cora, Wyoming was outstanding. His knowledge of the real estate market combined with his creation of extraordinary promotional materials which highlighted the unique qualities of our specific location generated interest locally as well as internationally. Through his clarity in all communications, he represented us and our goals as sellers and brought integrity to every aspect of the sales process. We are very pleased to have had the opportunity and good fortune to have worked with such an energetic, personable, and committed agent.”

Holland Dutton and Malcolm Morelli


“I just completed my second Montana purchase with Craig Janssen and Live Water. In both instances, Craig worked with both the seller and me as Buyer, and in both cases, I felt that he was looking after my interests as well as those of the seller. Craig was thorough and professional in all respects. He was responsive in a timely manner, a big thing with me, to all my questions.  And if he didn’t have an answer, he got it for me right away.

This last transaction was old school, no drama, blowups, or posturing. Craig’s ethics, diligence, and demeanor did much to maintain this tenor and contributed significantly to a transaction that, dare I say, was enjoyable. Above all, Craig is a straight shooter, trustworthy, and a good guy. With agents like Craig, it’s no wonder that Live Water Properties has the reputation and success it has.”

J. Magee, Montana Ranch Buyer


“We met Mark Harman in April 2020, and he served as our broker to help us find our ideal Texas ranch. Mark has a remarkable real estate and ranch skill set, including the foresight to engage a Wildlife Biologist to provide us expert counsel on how to handle the deer population on the 940-acre ranch we wanted to purchase. Mark always had our best interest in mind as we worked through these and other issues, and kept the deal on track.

Without Mark’s expertise, extensive diligence and incredible hard work, the deal would not have closed. Mark also provided us with great counsel and contacts to choose a ranch manager and custom home builder. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark, and highly recommend him for premier land acquisition in Texas.”

Roland and Lynne Smith, Texas Ranch Buyer


“We are writing you to relate our experience of dealing with Toby Griffith in the sale of our property at 123 Dallas Dome Rd. near Lander, WY. We had a very positive experience dealing with Toby, and have recommended him to acquaintances looking to sell a ranch. From the beginning, we feel Toby did an excellent job of guiding us through the whole process, explaining options, answering questions, and most importantly, keeping in touch. Toby was sensitive to the fact we had put so much blood, sweat, and tears into our ranch over the last 28 years, and that we wanted to be selective as far as who the next owner would be. He is just a great individual to work with all the way around. In addition to the successful sale of our ranch, we feel we have gained a friend. We were also impressed with the web brochure the LiveWater team assembled, and how the property was marketed in general.”

 

Bill and Norma Yankee, Yankee Ranch


“When it came time to sell our 1,500-acre Montana fishing ranch we knew we would have to find a broker who understood the beauty and uniqueness of this special place. We found that in Jeff Shouse, of Live Water, and his 35 years of market knowledge. Jeff’s expertise in how to position this property and his understanding of who the buyer would be, led to an efficient process and excellent final sales price. Jeff’s friendly, pleasant and easygoing manner made for a wonderful experience!”

Vickie, Seller of Canyon Ranch


“A family client asked me to interview and hire a ranch broker to sell a very unique recreational ranch property. After numerous interviews with all the known brokerages and being in the ranch brokerage business myself in Texas, the choice became a no-brainer after meeting Brian Hartley. Brian understands the product as well as anyone I’ve met with. He also understands how important these rare assets are to the families that own them. I look forward to many more successful sales with Brian and give him my highest recommendation!”

Wright Monning, Cow Creek Ranch


Now that we are fully moved and settling in, Carolyn and I wanted to thank Matt and Live Water Properties for the diligence, patience and expertise. Moving 1,800 miles while vetting easements, multiple water rights, land trusts and public land access (on top of the usual issues with any real estate purchase) could have been overwhelming. By making this process efficient and bringing clarity, Matt was key to us realizing a dream. We could not be happier with our purchase!

Randy & Carolyn Taylor, Homestead Draw


“Latham was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond. I was an out-of-town buyer, so I really needed someone that I could trust and who could be patient with us. His local knowledge and network of contacts have been incredibly helpful post-sale as well. I cannot recommend Latham highly enough.”
