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. Sincerely, Mark A. Jensen President PrimaLend Capital Group, Inc.

Thorough and Knowledgeable
Justin was very thorough and knowledgeable on the process and how we needed to go about completing it. He didn't constantly rush or hound us on trying to make a decision, and I would recommend him. Justin was very professional, and courteous of our time and wishes to view the property, and made sure our questions were answered very timely. He took the time to make sure that we understood the agreements and what all was contained within them, I think that's a big move on his part to make sure we were happy with how it was going to play out.

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

Debbie Reed was our family's agent at a crucial time in our lives. We had just lost our Father and had to put his home on the market. Debbie went above and beyond in representing us with this daunting deed. She was very punctual and considerate in keeping us updated as we lived several hours away from Goodland. She was quick to answer any questions that we may have had and handled everything in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend her and her company for any real estate needs and will definitely be calling on her and her company in the future.

"It has been our dream for several years to own property in the Centennial valley. Without Jaci this dream never would have become a reality. Her hard work, knowledge and zeal made our transaction easy. My wife and I have purchased several properties in our lives but we have never had a realtor that worked as hard as Jaci, and it is rare to find anyone as helpful, knowledgeable, and motivated as she is. It was a wonderful experience, and we look forward to working with her again in the future."

Got the job done
You and Bobby did more in two months than our former broker on our 160 acre Aspen Lakes Ranch near Divide did in two years. We are SO Glad that the commission went to you.
