Thank You
I wanted to say thanks to both Lisa and Twila for doing such a great job on helping my husband and I sell our land in Centennial Ranch. It was such an amazing piece of land that we would have loved to keep, but hope that the new owners can make better use of its beauty than we would have been able to. Both of you made the whole process seamless and kept us very informed throughout it all. From the bottom of our hearts...Thank You!

Outstanding Job!
Zack Wiese did an outstanding job of representing my property on North Rim Road. I have had this property on the market for over 5 years. Zack was able to get the property committed to sale in one month after he obtained the listing. He did an excellent job with his pictures and advertising which was very helpful in achieving the sale. In addition he made numerous trips to the cabin to make sure that everything was presentable and the road to the property was open and passable. I definitely would recommend him as a real estate broker who is willing to go beyond the expectations of a potential real estate buyer or seller. Arlen Anderson

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.

Can't Say Thanks Enough
Diane and I want to thank you very much for all your hard work finding the perfect family to buy and enjoy our place in Sportsmen's Paradise. You went far beyond what we expected and ended up being a good friend in the process. We are good friends with some of the other families in Sportsmen's and will be fishing there in the future and would enjoy it if we could call you to go fishing with us. Once again, thank you very much! Wendell and Diane Harrell

Someone you could work with and trust
"My first recollection of Jim Digby would be of a name on a sign next to some property I had just purchased. I gave him a call, and just remember talking to someone who was immediately someone you could work with and trust. He didn't try to oversell me or tell me about the great opportunity, or the abundance of wildlife, or how I needed to move fast or it would be gone. No, he was just a no nonsense guy who would try to cut the best deal he could, for buyer and still represent the seller's interest. I appreciate also his ability to compensate and understand all personalities in a transaction, from the legal aides and attorneys, abstract / escrow agents, bankers, and all the folks involved in a real estate closing. I would recommend Jim Digby as a real estate agent, and look forward to the continued working relationship we have enjoyed." Sincerely, Jim May Oro Vaca Ranches. 4M Feeders, Inc. Herd Co.

Consistency and Honesty
The purpose of this letter is to recommend and congratulate the Hayden Outdoors Team, headed by John Leo Hayden and Dax Hayden for the successful sale of the Dunne Valley Ranch. My name is Steve Dunne, President of Dunne, Inc. the owner of the 21,000+ acre Dunne Valley Ranch located on the Oklahoma border south of Dodge City, Kansas. The ranch has been in our family since 1941 and after much soul searching my two brothers and eight cousins came to the conclusion that holding on to the ranch for prosperity sake created more potential for family strife than selling. Since none of us had any interest in the cattle business it was just too valuable of a piece of property to be split amongst literally dozens of future nieces, nephews, grandchildren, etc.. As one might imagine, this was not an easy decision. Our goal was to keep part or all of the minerals, and to sell the surface. When looking for a broker to list the property, we wanted to be sure that they would reach out nationally, if not internationally. In addition we required someone familiar with ranches and ranching, not just a broker willing to sell it for the lowest commission. My research pointed to Hayden Outdoors for their recent sales in the area, like The Box Ranch. I contracted Hayden Outdoors and they came and met me in Wichita. We listed with Hayden Outdoors and they began an extensive marketing campaign. The ranch was shown to 20+ potential buyers over the term of the listing, and John Leo Hayden kept me informed of showings, potential negotiations and of course all offers. The land was listed for eighteen months and a successful sale was closed in August of this year. Like any good broker, Leo brought me every offer regardless of the amount, but where Leo rose above the typical broker was his advice to me on those offers. Instead of encouraging me to take the first low ball offer that came in the door to make a fast (and sizable commission), he would say “Steve I am telling you your ranch is nicer than that, it is worth the money you are asking!” and by golly after lots of blood, sweat and tears we got damn near all of it! Ultimately we ended up with top dollar for the surface and kept all the minerals for future generations. John Leo Hayden, Dax Hayden and the entire Hayden Outdoors team worked tirelessly and greatly helped in selling the property. I will recommend Hayden Outdoors to my friends who have farm, ranch or recreational land to sell. Regards, Steven W. Dunne

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.

Compliments To Lisa & Twila Out of Westcliffe
Hello Mr. Hayden ~ I just wanted to take a minute to tell you about my Hayden Outdoors experience and two of your agents! I have a little ranch in Westcliffe, Colorado ("Rocky Mountain Ranch" on your website). After trying to sell for 4-1/2 years, I was completely disillusioned with the agents I had been dealing with thus far, and the whole process in general. That is, until I went to talk with Lisa Frank and Twila Geroux. They both took a lot of time with me explaining Hayden's marketing strategy and their plan for selling my home. They had answers for my many questions and an understanding "hug" for my frustrations with what I had been through in my attempts to sell. After giving it a lot of thought, I made the decision to list my ranch with Lisa and Twila. They both came out, took pictures (Lisa is quite the photographer, did you know that?), and got me listed right away. Then I sat back and prepared myself for what I thought would be a long wait to sell. Lisa called me six, (6), (yes, 6) days later with a good, solid offer! She worked very hard with the buyers to get them signed, get money delivered, and ready to close. Without her hard-working, butt-kicking, professional manner, and spot-on instincts about how to handle the buyer, none of this would have happened. And more than once this straight-shootin' cowgirl had to remind me who was the agent in this deal! She held my hand through the entire process, often sending me email updates at midnight! So now I am moving on to my dream home and I feel I owe a huge debt of thanks to Lisa and Twila for their ceaseless commitment to their work. I am very grateful I chose Lisa, Twila and Hayden Outdoors! Just wanted you to know :-) Many thanks, Jaye Jensen

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
