Lisa Frank Customer Service Above and Beyond!
My husband and I had been looking for Colorado mountain property for two and a half years. I would spend hours throughout the week researching land through various internet sites, and would then map a drivable round trip route. We'd often spend our weekends going to different parts of Colorado to take a physical look at mountain properties. Twice we decided to contact the listing agent to take a second and closer look at different properties, hoping the agent would be able to at least point out boundary lines, and twice we were disappointed. It was our experience we had much better success hunting for land on our own, until we met Lisa. At the end of January I came upon a listing of Hayden Outdoors in Westcliffe, CO and knew instantly from the photos I wanted to see it. I called Lisa Frank, the listing agent and left her a message telling her she had a property listed I was interested in knowing more about. Within a few hours she called me back and before I could even ask, she was offering to meet up with us the following Saturday so we could hike the property and walk its boundaries. Not only did Lisa have wonderful pictures online, she knew the property, where the boundaries were, and she hiked it with us. Oh-Did I say there was 7-10 inches of snow on the ground at the time? Well-There was. If that isn't going above and beyond I don't know what is. I could tell from her photos this was a special piece of land, and my skeptical husband was convinced within 15 minutes of hiking it. Thanks to Lisa with her quick response, knowledge of the land and willingness to explore it with us, it is now ours. So if you're looking for a realtor who's knowledgable and not afraid to get a little exercise and even snow in her boots, Lisa's your gal. Thanks Lisa. Patti & Bill V.

Professional Magic
Dear Sirs, Please accept this letter as an expression of gratitude and as a commendation of Greg Liddle. Mr. Liddle is a credit to Hayden Outdoors and should be recognized as not only a top caliber realtor but, more importantly, a top caliber person. Greg recently developed a qualified Buyer, generated a contract and closed the sale of our property, a USDA Certified Organic Farm. One might ask why an organic farmer would seek out a broker and organization specializing in recreational properties. It was actually quite simple: it was all about Greg and his high level of enthusiasm and his unwavering commitment to performance. I watched Greg sell a property across the road and asked him to come and visit with my wife and me. It was after meeting Greg that I decided to violate the time honored maxim of “location, location, location”. My wife and I knew all along that our Buyer would not come from our small, rural market but previous real estate agencies (the two largest in the SW corner of Colorado) refused to accept our premise. They kept telling us, ”Well, if they come to town, we’ve got `em”. Wrong. Greg proceeded to market our property. He diligently put out his trail cameras and captured beautiful shots of hard charging zucchini and apples in the rut. Now, there are still a lot of deer and elk here and trophy fly fishing within a yawn of our property, but Greg was discharged the mission of finding a Buyer who wanted to grow vegetables; and he did. Greg was given strict orders to qualify his Prospects, including showing proof of financial capability, and required signings of both a Confidentiality Statement and a tough Restrictive Covenant. Even with these stringent requirements in place, Greg immediately quadrupled the number of showings and provided us with legitimate Prospects. Greg found our Buyer and brought him to us. He was indeed from outside our market area. Our Buyer was actually on his way to place an offer on another farm and Greg persuaded him to swing by for a visit. That was all it took. While working his professional magic (that may actually be his southern BS) he not only sold the Buyer our property, but the property adjacent to us, doubling the size of his new farm. This simultaneous sale was an amazingly intricate, nerve racking deal, replete with dozens of nail-biting complications. It also involved two Sellers as aggressive as a loner doe with twin fawns. Greg nailed the deal: cash Buyer, 30 day close, no survey, no home inspection, one 2 day extension due to the incompetence of the fund-wiring bank and no BS. The property conveyed to a truly ecstatic and grateful Buyer. Sweet! Having an extensive background in real estate myself, I easily recognize the exhibition of a strong work ethic as well as Greg’s unrelenting professionalism. I ask you to seriously consider my comments and accept my most profound appreciation for a job well done. As an additional comment: two days before closing, my wife and I were returning to our farm from town when our truck hit a patch of black ice on the highway. Our truck spun out of control and we wound up 30 feet down a cliff, and lucky to be alive. Later that evening, as it became apparent that we were to be released from the hospital with manageable injuries, my only call was to Greg Liddle. Greg came to the hospital, to our aid. He called our children to inform them that we would be OK and then drove us through a blinding blizzard to our home 40 miles away. He was there for us. My family is extremely close-nit. We are very private people and tend to keep to ourselves. Until recently, I had only two real friends in my life. Now I have three. Sincerely, Peter Reardon

Smooth Process
I would like to compliment you on your service of my recent purchase organized by Hayden Outdoor Properties. I found a New Mexico ranch on the web page and easily navigated to contact Greg Liddle. Since initial contact, I was exceedingly impressed with Greg. He followed up and kept in contact with me. It was through his persistence that I have come to own this great ranch. Greg proved to be knowledgeable and was always extremely friendly. The transaction was so smooth that it was obvious that I should list a Kansas whitetail property that I want to sell with the Hayden's. I hope to have a similar experience with Kerry Cromer. Greg has kept up with me long after the sale and the only question I have now is how many friends can one man make. Greg provided the best personal service I have ever received in a multitude of real estate dealings I have had in my lifetime. He is a credit to your organization and you are to be commended.

House Shopping Adventure
My experience with Hayden Outdoors was really great and fun. I called them up (Westcliffe, CO office) from out of state, told them what I was looking for and they lined up quite a few houses for me to come and look at. My first contact with the Westcliffe office was with Lisa Frank. She worked her tail off trying to find the perfect house for me. Her partner, Twila Geroux, who was also looking very hard for me, then she contacted me with a brand new listing. I looked at that house and was thrilled. I bought it shortly after seeing it. Twila also put me in touch with a lending agent who made financing a painless experience. The closing went very smoothly. Both women I dealt with at Hayden Outdoors are not only the friendliest gals I've ever dealt with but are also extremely wonderful, very knowledgeable and they made searching for and buying a house a relatively easy and fun experience. If I ever have to move locations, I will definitely use Hayden Outdoors again thanks to these two gals. They take customer service to a whole new level. In short, you folks are lucky to have them working for you and should be very proud of them. Roger Swenson

Honesty and Integrity
To Whom It May Concern: Shad Sheldon acted as our real estate agent in selling our family farm. I found him to be reliable and responsible. Shad was quick to reply to any questions we had for him, explaining the process in a way that was easy to understand. I found his good-natured personality enjoyable and fun to work with. In addition, I appreciated his honesty; I felt like he had our back and closed the deal with professionalism and integrity. I would be delighted to work with him again. Sincerely Debi Hertert

Productivity & Professionalism
This is a letter of referral for Eric & Kerry Cromer. We looked on the internet and searched for a rural Kansas Realtor; we came across Hayden Outdoor's and saw that they were listed as the number 1 broker. We were extremely pleased when they came out walked the property, took photos and movies of the property. They discussed all the options with us, listing price and explained the procedures of selling our property. We selected them to sell our 46 Acre Property just outside of Great Bend, Kansas (Mystery River Property). We listed with them on Thursday and Friday they sold our property. They got us a contract for the full amount. Wow, wasn’t quite expecting it to sell so soon. They have contacts! We previously had talked to a realtor in Great Bend and they wanted to list our property for $100,000.00 less than we felt that our property was worth. That is when we contacted Eric & Kerry Cromer. When they came out they appraised our property as the same price we were considering, before we told them what we wanted for our property. They kept in constant contact with us through closing. If we had any questions we would just call their cell phones. We were thrilled with their productivity & professionalism. We could have listed with the other realtor and lost $100,000.00. THANK YOU ERIC & KERRY! If you want action on your property we would recommend that you contact them and put them to work for you.

Proud of my Purchase
You work your entire adult life with an end game in mind for retirement and you don't want to make a mistake. You have been deciding exactly what game you want to pursue on "your" land and how to go about making that happen. Along the way the girls get married and you add two son-in-laws that both hunt. You are trying to plan a long term lasting "adventure" that will be a legacy for your family. I must have changed my mind a dozen times and I still did not know exactly what I wanted for sure. Along comes Greg Liddle. He has the land that will supply multiple hunting adventures and the pictures and stories to back that claim up. There are Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope, Bear, Coyote, Mountain Lion, Turkey, Quail on the comeback, and if you like to fish for Koi, you have a pond full to test your skills! I have been in retail for 40 years. He seemed genuine, not slick, confident in his claim, and invited me to take a tour in February. Time to get serious. Six inches of fresh snow on the ground, Greg met Mark and me at the airport in Trinidad. He was pulling a trailer with a 900 Ranger riding neatly on board. With a cup of fresh coffee and a roll in hand, we drove the 60 miles to the ranch. Now Greg had explained the ranch in detail and each mile we drove, I expected a dramatic change in the landscape. I was thinking that I may have made a mistake, not at all what I had envisioned. When we pulled into the ranch yard, I didn't have to spend much time there, I wasn't buying a house, even though the pole barn was fantastic, I was buying the adventure. The tour proved to unlock all of the possibilities that Greg had explained. With the fresh snow, it was evident that the land held a population of Elk and Deer. Tracks were numerous and the cover the ranch provided made it easy to picture the hunting experience that it would provide. If there was a question that couldn't be answered I would have it by the time I returned home. Greg knew the ranch as well as if he owned it himself. I could write pages on the follow-up Greg provided. The contacts the man has are amazing and he can recommend someone for every need you may have. It didn't matter if it was a lawyer, insurance, a fence man, or the best place to get a burger, he had it all. I can call him anytime and ask him a question and not only does it get answered, but it is done because he cares and not because he has to. I am proud of my purchase and I can tell you that the three of us that hunted Elk the first year, all took nice bulls, our first bulls. I am also proud that I can call Greg Liddle my friend. I have and will continue to recommend Greg to anyone looking for property! Thanks Greg. Patrick Teal Aberdeen, South Dakota
