A Chance Meeting
To Whom it May Concern: I had my property, seventy-four acres and a custom built house, on the market for a year and a half with no serious response. A chance meeting introduced me to Hayden Outdoors and Greg Liddle. Greg did a thorough vetting of the property and placed it on the Hayden Internet site. Within a month it was sold and I was on the way to a new home. Greg was more helpful and responsive than any real estate agent I have ever experienced in the past. His attention to detail and immediate response to my questions made the entire transaction extremely easy --- and surprisingly rapid. Anyone who has outdoor activities in mind will find an extensive listing at Hayden Outdoors and anyone who has that sort of property to sell will find an energetic agent in Hayden Outdoors and Greg Liddle. I recommend both without reservation. Yours truly, Richard H. Andrew

Kay Younger
When we decided to list our home, we had heard that Hayden Outdoors was the best realty group to get the house sold. We weren’t disappointed. We wanted the right person who would respect, maintain and preserve the character of our beautiful historical Victorian home. Our realtor, Debbie Reed, helped us find just that person. In a small rural community, that was no easy task. At one point we chose to try renting out the house; and therefore, we chose to take it off the market. We are living 2 1/2 hours away from the home, so even though our contract had lapsed, Debbie agreed to keep an eye on the home for us and be our contact person. As soon as the renters left we renewed our contract with Hayden Outdoors. It wasn’t long before we had our buyer. Debbie made certain it was a smooth transition—she was very professional and thought of every detail. What we liked most was the communication. Any questions or problems were resolved quickly. We always felt Debbie and Hayden Outdoors had our backs. Thank you!

Game Trailer
I am writing this letter to commend Greg Liddle of Hayden Outdoors for his outstanding job of marketing and successfully selling my 4,325 acre property in Southeastern Colorado. Greg lives 7 hours away from the property by truck, but that did not deter him from frequently driving to the property in person to show it to qualified prospective buyers and other ranch brokers. Greg even drove to oversee the work of contractors working on the water wells, piping, roads, and so forth. When I’ve purchased ranches in the past, it was surprising how few agents and brokers took the time (and fuel) to meet qualified buyers at the subject property – I cannot imagine how a property could be sold for top dollar if a knowledgeable senior selling agent/broker is not present to point out a property’s strong features and expertly answer buyer questions. Greg took the time to explore the property from corner to corner before he took any prospective buyer on a tour – this ensured that he didn’t get lost or turned around when showing the expansive property. In my previous ranch buying experiences I was shocked at how often the junior person guiding the tour didn’t even know his way around the road system. Greg’s particular expertise lies in the area of game management. He worked tirelessly to search out the game trails and install game cameras to document the trophy big game present on our property. He coordinated “range management” to balance selective, limited cattle grazing with the food and water requirements of the game to optimize the condition of the property for recreation. By the time my ranch went under contract to sell, Greg’s efforts paid off by drawing 30” mule deer and a herd of approximately 80 elk onto the property. With so much of the surrounding territory overgrazed, it seemed like half of the elk in the county were finding their food on my property! (I already miss the place.) Greg frequently checked the game cameras for fresh images of monster bulls and bucks … by emailing these pictures to previous ranch viewers he was able to reinvigorate their interest and bring them back into the mix of potential buyers. He is proactive. He wasn’t just sitting around waiting for someone to write on offer! Greg respected my money as he would respect his own money. He recommended expenditures on only the improvements that were absolutely necessary to broaden the appeal of the ranch and maximize its resale value. On several occasions I asked his advise about certain improvements to enhance the property’s marketability. On most of those occasions he adviseagainst the expenditure. As a result of his efforts at spending my dollars carefully while also maximizing the property’s recreational value through game/range management, we were able to sell the property in October 2011 for more than its 2007 purchase price. We recouped not only the purchase price, but also the cost of improvement and the cost of carry, with enough left over to show a profit. Given the frothy real estate market of 2007 and the economic weakness of 2011, we were obviously pleased with this result. Other brokers I spoke with in the area were impressed with how many qualified showings Greg was able to schedule. It seems like everyone in the state knew of the listing. He was bringing in prospective buyers from all over the USA, and even had inquiries from overseas. I don’t know the details of exactly how Greg did that; I’m sure he could tell you. It was very obvious he didn’t just put the property on a website and wait for his phone to ring! Greg’s expertise also spans a working knowledge of state game and water regulations, legal aspects of the transaction, mixed use land optimization, neighbor relations and local community relations, and even weather considerations. Although my ranch sale was a cash/no contingency transaction, it was apparent that Greg has a working knowledge of recreational property lending sources – he was able to introduce a couple of prospects to a leading ag property lender. All of my experience with Greg is as a listing agent. However, if we decide to purchase another recreational property within Greg’s market area, I will probably utilize his services as a buyer’s agent, given his strong overall knowledge of the market and his insights into the “levers of value” for trophy properties.

By Our Side
My family has known Justin Hertzel since his high school days. In our minds, he has established himself as a person of high integrity, with strong family values, and with the motivation to get jobs done. So, when we started looking for Sandhills ranch property, Justin was the person we wanted on “our side,” representing us in the transaction and helping us evaluate various properties for possible purchase, revealing the pros and cons of each. In retrospect, we got the process of finding the property and enacting the purchase done quite quickly, a reflection on both circumstances and availabilities and, particularly, Justin’s attention and service to our needs. Justin was right “by our side” as we waded through all the information gathering, the offer, and finally the closing. Yes, we celebrated with Justin when the deal was done! The best way to complete my testimony is to answer the obvious question: Would I engage Justin Hertzel’s services again to be my representative in another real estate transaction? My answer, in less than a heartbeat, is a resounding “YES.” Merlyn Nielsen Seward, Nebraska January 15, 2015

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

Quick To Action
Re: J. Gregory (Greg) Liddle Hayden Outdoors We owned a tract of land, which was listed for sale with a local realtor for over a year, with very little activity. The original listing agreement had expired, and we were in process of re-listing the property. This area had been "hard hit" by the depressed economy and was in an area of very little sales activity. lt had been discussed, with some of the owners and the previous agent, that the asking price needed to be lowered by approx. 20%in order to get it in line with area appraised values and to generate some interest. I had met Greg through a mutual client, and was aware of his reputation for being able to move properties. I called Greg to discuss, and it was decided to move forward. We agreed to list it with Greg again at the original asking price, then consider lowering the price in a short period of time if there was no activity. Within 2 weeks of signing the listing agreement, Greg called and indicated that he had found a buyer and would forward the purchase contract. The transaction was closed on a timely basis. I would definitely recommend Greg, and plan to utilize his services again when the opportunity arises. John Lossdo Sr. Vice President Ag New Mexico Farm Credit Services, ACA
