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!

What An Adventure
In April 2012 my wife and I started searching for a ranch in northwest New Mexico and/or southwest Colorado. We both were familiar with the area and liked it very much. Our search started using the internet. In a few weeks we identified several potential properties for sale in the area. Two of which were listed by Greg Liddle of Hayden Outdoors. Greg was contacted and we scheduled a visit. I had given Greg a long list of questions that needed answered by arrival time. As we pulled up to the gate there was Greg sitting in the driver's seat of his Polaris Ranger 800 crew, ready to go. Not only did he have a nice folder to hand me with excellent maps and answers to all my questions, he had also packed a lunch for us and a cooler full of water and Gatorade. What a great day we had. Greg knew the ranches like the back of his hand. We spent several hours that day touring the hills and valleys of each ranch. Greg was the consummate professional. Being an avid outdoorsman like myself, he keyed in on the features we were most interested in. I deal with a lot of professionals in my business, but none better than Greg. We really like the two ranches Greg showed us that day and told Greg we wanted to make an offer, but needed answers to another long list of questions. Greg never batted an eye, just smiled and said you will have everything in one or two days. True to his word he emailed us a response to all of the questions the next day. We then made an offer with several demands, such as a survey of each property. Once again, Greg smiled and said I will get back with you soon. In two days he secured everything we asked for. I truly believe Greg sees every obstacle as an opportunity. As we closed the deal for both ranches, I became aware that Colorado does not let the new owner carry over deer tags from past owners. I was alarmed and called Greg and told him it was important I have at least one Colorado deer tag. He just laughed and said I already secured one for you. He knew what I needed before I did and already had it lined up. I then had one more big favor to ask of him, my dad who is 87 wanted to come out elk hunting that fall and I could be there due to my business travels. Greg about fell over with joy when I asked him if he would take my 87 year old dad elk hunting on the ranch for me. Not onlly did he take my dad out hunting, he called in a beautiful 6x6 bull that my dad harvested the second evening of their hunt. I can assure anyone and everyone that deals with Greg Liddle of Hayden Outdoors that you will not find a better individual who truly cares for his clients and works very hard to satisfy every concern that comes up in a real estate deal. I never heard one complaint from Greg in all my dealings, he knows what it takes to satisfy customers and is willing to go the extra mile. My wife and I feel lucky to have met Greg and the Hayden Outdoors team. If we were ever to purchase or sell another property, Greg would be my first call. Mark R. Houser CEO Shores Lift Solution

Understood how to market a high end hunting ranch!
"I contacted Hayden Outdoors after researching their marketing strategy and observing the clientele they pursued. I was contacted by Dax Hayden and we discussed my ranch and a process for maximum results. I was assigned Jim Digby as my personnel realtor. Jim is an avid outdoorsman and understood how to market a high end stand alone hunting ranch. The clients he brought to us were vetted and motivated. This is the third project where we took property and developed it into a hunting facility. We are starting our next project and will be back with Jim and Hayden Outdoors. Note we sold our ranch at only 2% less than asking price." David Mitchell

Quick, Efficient & Helpful
Again, thanks for all your efforts in helping us purchase the Hartsel property. You were quick to answer out questions, obtain information from the seller, and respond to our requests for recommendations for local businesses to support our purchase. You couldn't have made this any easier. Edward F. Murphy

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

The Extra Mile
We, Dale Christensen and Patricia Raih, had previously listed our cabin and property with another realtor for 4 or more years of wasted time in Colorado, when Lisa frank and Twila came in the picture from Hayden Outdoors. Lisa and Twila went the extra mile and sold the property with in 3 months. Their expertise was phenomenal, I would recommended them on any persons property they have for sale. We are listing the rest of our property with them.

Great Communication
I wanted to send you a note to more formally thank you for your support in marketing and selling the Buckman mountain property in New Mexico. As you know, this was my second experience working with you and your professionalism and dedication were every bit as impressive on the sell side as on the buy side. In my mind you again went well and above any expectation I had, beginning with the thoughtful and organized approach to marketing the property and finishing with the impressive efficiency of the closing process. In between, further examples were equally if not more impressive. I was expecting that given the time of year and the remote nature of the property, it would be late spring before any realistic opportunity would arise but when you had an interested buyer, you were willing (and able) to move mountains to keep the transaction moving. In this case, mountains of equipment (GMC, Polaris, ski-doo) to get the prospective buyers in to see the property. Incredibly impressive indeed and when you add the level of communication throughout the process, it couldn't have been a better experience for me. Thanks again Greg for going the extra mile. You will be at the top of the list for any referral as well as when that time comes for me to find that dream property in the future. Kind regards, Ken Kenneth Shives | Associé | Landwell & Associés
