What Our Clients Say

Great Referral!
Jon and I would like to thank Justin Hertzel for his efficient and capable assistance in two recent property transactions. We started by searching online for properties in the Lincoln, NE area for our niece who was hoping to relocated here. We found some interesting listings and contacted Hayden Outdoors for more information. We were referred to Justin who contacted us the same day. To make a long story short, Justin helped us sell a small acreage we bought twenty years ago which enabled us to purchase a retirement property with a house and detached shop that we are very excited about. We love living in the country, and Justin has made our dream come true. To make the story end even better, Justin sold the adjoining farm property to our niece who will be moving here in the next few years. Not only do we have a comfortable, quiet new home in the country, but we will have family living next door to us! Justin was patient with our many questions, never pressured us, and never seemed in a hurry when showing us available properties. He is personable, knowledgeable, and a true professional. Thank you, Justin!! ~LeAnn and Jon Merth

Responsive and Reliable
Justin Hertzel just helped me complete a sale and purchase of two properties in Nebraska. His knowledge of real estate values in different areas of the State combined with access to strong marketing support make him a real asset to anyone who needs help finding and selling property. He was responsive and reliable, both great assets in his business. Any future property transactions that I have in the Great State of Nebraska will have Justin’s name on the contract. ~Randy Henke

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.

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

"I wanted to write a review or send a note of thanks to Cody and his supervisors thanking...Hayden Outdoors for helping in the purchase of my whitetail hunting ranch/retirement property. Going into this adventure I had no clue what I needed to do other than knowing I wanted that property. I really appreciated Cody's immediate response to my email the same day I sent it, inquiring about the property. This was a huge step for me and I can not say how much I appreciated Cody's efforts, professionalism, honesty and ethical handling of my real estate purchase. Even though Cody was the sellers agent I felt like he was always in my corner and had my best interest in mind. I will be recommending Cody Jacks to any in need of real estate services. I look forward to retiring and enjoying everything the property and Wyoming have to offer." -- James D'Antonio

Understands how to market a rural property
Honestly we feel thru prayer and a break from the pressure to work with a system that just wanted to list our property and throw it out there, we noticed a nice clean black truck with the name “Hayden Outdoors Real Estate” with a Lecompton phone number and address just two miles from our home. Kim and I looked at each other. We picked up the phone and called the phone number. We met with Shad Sheldon within a couple of days. We shared our frustration about the marketing of our home outside the parameters of the MLS system. I can’t tell you how comforting it was when Shad finished our sentences; understanding exactly what the issues were for us. We have been marketed by Hayden Outdoors for 4 months and have had 5 families show interest in the home; with a 6th showing for next week. All of these showings have been with serious, well qualified buyers. This company understands how to market a rural property and spends the money to do so.

Perseverance, Patience, and Knowledge
Hello, When my wife and i started looking into buying our first home together we were both excited and hesitant. We basically knew very little about what was needed or even how to get started. My wife and i knew we wanted to find a place big enough for our family and yet manageable in price. Upon looking at several homes in the area we came across Hayden Outdoors. We contacted Stacy Mueller about homes in the area. He was very professional, informative and understood what we were looking for. We finally settled on a home and thanks to Stacy's perseverance, patience, and knowledge we were able to buy the house we wanted. I cannot say enough about Stacy being there to answer questions, guide us and on several occasions giving us the confidence to continue during some frustrating times. Stacy has even followed up after the sale just to make sure everything was good. We would highly recommend Stacy for many reasons.The most important is honesty, professionalism and commitment to his clients. James & Gloria Eaton
