What Our Clients Say

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

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.

Wow!
Wow. Hayden Outdoor Realtors. Not enough words to express our appreciation. We decided to sell our 8 acre 16 year ranch, and hurriedly got it ready for sale. It was listed with another agency who only utilized MLS listings. Well MLS is only available to realtors, not the public. Three months went by and only one viewing, no contracts. When our listing contract was up we decided to go with Shad Sheldon and Hayden Outdoor Realtors. So glad we did. Our listing was placed on over 1,400 sites nationwide. Thirty-one days later, our ranch was SOLD !! If you want professionalism in the sale of your home, and sold quickly, Hayden Outdoor Realtors is the way to go. Shad took care of all closing documents and necessary actions. All we had to do was “sign on the dotted line”. We are very pleased. ~Butch and Kate Gilliam

Two Huge "Thumbs Up"!
Two Huge "Thumbs Up" for Greg Liddle I've been a real estate attorney and very active real estate investor and developer for over thirty years. Over that period of time, I have worked with more real estate salespeople/brokers than I can even count -- both as a seller and as a buyer. My experience is that it's not easy to find a real estate broker who has the knowledge, background, personality and overall professional skill-set that can truly comprise a make-or-break a difference in bringing a transaction to a successful close. Greg Liddle brings all those talents to the table, and more. I just closed on the sale of a large, multi-million dollar ranch property in New Mexico. The property was stunningly beautiful with many unique advantages -- not the least of which were 30 annual private elk permits -- but one that also presented unique challenges to its marketing. It was located a long distance from major metropolitan areas, it was priced higher than any other property in the area, and it was comprised of numerous parcels with different zoning and development potential. After having unsuccessfully listing the property for some time with a local broker, I engaged Greg. He and his company brought incredible world-wide marketing efforts to bear via phenomenal internet outreach, the most prestigious sportsman's trade shows, national print presence, etc. He also managed the elk tag permitting for the ranch while it was being marketed. My ranch sale was by far the most challenging, complicated transaction to which I have ever been a party. That closing would never have happened if not for Greg. To add to the complication, our deal even involved the sale of unrelated properties with multiple sellers. Through it all, Greg worked with all the parties involved, and helped me navigate successfully through numerous potential land mines that would most likely have sabotaged the transaction in lesser-skilled hands. He worked closely and informatively with the buyer and buyer's attorney. He stayed on top of the transaction from beginning to end, keeping everyone fully-informed every step of the way. His attention to detail and consistent positive attitude were critical throughout. Finally, and by far my most valuable take-away from the entire experience, is that I have made a life-long friend. Greg is not only a true real estate professional, he's a genuinely great guy, with a contagiously-upbeat and winning personality. If you want the best of the best, I could not recommend anyone more than Greg Liddle. Roger Meeker Eagle Nest Ranch LLC September 7, 2014

Scott and Jeanette Clampitt
If you’re looking for property or a unique home, Shad is your guy. He helped us find the home and land of our dreams. He helped us sell the home we were currently in and when I say helped, I don’t mean he took pictures and called it good. He took the better part of a day finding all of the unique areas of our previous property and home and put together a whole presentation that Jeanette and I feel truly represented our home. In just a few short months our home sold for the price we wanted and he did it over the Christmas Holidays no less! His expertise isn’t just limited to the logistics of buying and selling. His lifetime experience of farming truly was helpful. He absolutely understands land management whether it be farming, haying or hunting. If you’re looking for an agent who genuinely cares about you and your dream property, look no further, Shad is your man.

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 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

Extensive knowledge and reputation
"I've known Jim Digby for many years. In fact his team helped me locate and purchase a ranch twenty plus years ago. Jim recently sold three different parcels of land for me. Some of the land had been for sale with other realtors for several years... I chose Jim because of his extensive knowledge and reputation in our market. We endured some tough economic times and Jim worked tirelessly to promote these different parcels. Additionally, Jim was and is an invaluable sounding board in understanding and establishing market value. Any future land I purchase or sell will be with Jim's help!"

Smooth Process
I would like to compliment you on your service of my recent purchase organized by Hayden Outdoor Properties. I found a New Mexico ranch on the web page and easily navigated to contact Greg Liddle. Since initial contact, I was exceedingly impressed with Greg. He followed up and kept in contact with me. It was through his persistence that I have come to own this great ranch. Greg proved to be knowledgeable and was always extremely friendly. The transaction was so smooth that it was obvious that I should list a Kansas whitetail property that I want to sell with the Hayden's. I hope to have a similar experience with Kerry Cromer. Greg has kept up with me long after the sale and the only question I have now is how many friends can one man make. Greg provided the best personal service I have ever received in a multitude of real estate dealings I have had in my lifetime. He is a credit to your organization and you are to be commended.
