My company was faced with
the unlikely task of purchasing property in rural Texas. Our company is 164 years old and has always tried to open workshops in the countryside
just as our founder did when
he opened his first workshop outside of Paris in 1860.
This was a first for me.
Although I am a native Texan,
I had no experience as to how
to approach this. I have to say that I became the luckiest guy
in the world the day I called Hortenstine Ranch Company. Casey Berley and Cash McWhorter jumped into this
task with all four feet. Within
two months, not only had we found a property that everyone loved, we had negotiated the terms and conditions.
In May of 2019, we will open
a 100,000 square foot workshop south of Ft. Worth and will be employing well over 250 Texans. We could not have done it without Casey and Cash and Hortenstine Ranch Company.

My wife and I were in search of a combination hunting ranch/weekend get-a-way so contacted Cash McWhorter with Hortenstine Ranch Company. I found the team at HRC to be very diligent and professional. They took the time to understand what we were looking for and what we could afford to spend.
We ultimately found “the place”, which was made up of four different contiguous properties, three of which were for sale and one that was not, making it a very complex transaction. Dealing with four different sellers certainly had its challenges, but the team at HRC helped us navigate through the process, knowing when to push and when to be patient.
We got all four deals closed and we could not be happier. The knowledge and expertise of the HRC team proved to be invaluable in our search for ranch property. I highly recommend you give them a call. Not only will you be delighted with their work product, I bet you make some friends for life.

When I decided to sell my ranch, I interviewed several ranch realtors. I was impressed with Hortenstine Ranch Company LLC, Dallas, particularly with owner Blake Hortenstine and partner Cash McWhorter. I could tell these were ranch-savvy guys who understand what investments add value and which are not likely to have much of a payoff. There were some things I needed to do on the ranch in order for me to pocket the most money with the sell. I was comfortable that they wanted to help me get the most value from our sale and not just have me spend money with no return.
We drew up a list of improvements and prioritized what absolutely needed to be done, what would be nice to do and what I could do without. It was a real business process. I was not just throwing darts on the wall. What I appreciated about Blake and Cash is that they did not try to tell me what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear. In fact, they talked me out of some investments that they did not think had the potential for a major payoff. With their help I was able to sell my land for $400 an acre above the previous high bid for the ranch.

A search for the perfect ranch can be a long and frustrating process, especially when searching for a ranch that meets both strict criteria and stays within a specified budget. As someone who does not have a lot of free time, I needed a broker who could provide candor, efficiency, and respect for my time.
When my family decided to look for a ranch three years ago, we chose Cash McWhorter. He began by providing us with an extensive list of ranches currently on the market, along with his detailed thoughts of why each ranch may or may not meet our criteria. We were able to tour several ranches in a short amount of time. At the conclusion of our first set of tours, we were told not to get discouraged, as purchasing a ranch is a process. A process, that due to Cash’s vast knowledge, in-depth insights, and enduring patience, was effortless and enjoyable for both me and my family. His comprehensive land knowledge, extensive real estate experience, and ability to provide us with a detailed ranch improvement plan with a corresponding budget were absolutely priceless.
With his unmatched service, he has also remained available after the transaction for assistance with guidance in completion of our ranch improvements, ensuring maximum resale potential. After working so closely with Cash for an extended period of time, I can say that he is not only my broker, but he is now my friend and a part of our family. For anyone looking to buy or sell a ranch in Texas or Oklahoma, it is my pleasure to give my highest recommendation to Cash McWhorter and Hortenstine Ranch Company.
