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.
