A sixth-generation Texan, Chance was born in the west Texas town of Abilene and later moved east to Texarkana where he spent his younger years. Being raised in both Abilene and Texarkana, Chance gained a deep appreciation for two very different regions of the Lone Star State: the big skies of West Texas and the piney woods of east Texas.

Chance is a graduate of Texas Tech University where he earned a BBA in Finance and Business Economics. Upon graduation from Texas Tech, Chance moved to Dallas where he spent the first decade of his career building and operating a healthcare services company. Serving in the role of Chief Operating Officer, the business venture ultimately led to a successful equity sale.

Following the transaction, Chance chose to follow his passion for the outdoors by joining Hortenstine Ranch Company. This passion and love for the outdoors took off in 2014 when Chance fulfilled a lifelong dream and purchased his own ranch near Athens, Texas. An avid hunter, Chance turned his sights on making immediate improvements to his ranch which allowed the wildlife to flourish. Experiencing ranch ownership and reaping the benefits of hard work fueled his desire to help others experience the same satisfaction. Chance now focuses solely on assisting sellers and buyers with rural and recreational ranch properties.

Chance's commitment to going above and beyond for each one of his clients fits right into Hortenstine Ranch Company's commitment to an unparalleled customer experience. He combines a unique perspective from his successful corporate background, business efficiency, and his hands-on experience in the ownership of his ranch. He, along with the rest of the HRC team, will continue to set the bar for farm and ranch real estate transactions in Texas. Chance works tirelessly to provide his clients with an experience that cannot be matched.

Chance, along with his wife and their two boys, reside in Dallas, although they try to spend as much time as possible at their ranch.

Joey Sanders Anderson County, Texas
Texas Licensed Real Estate Broker - Farm and Ranch Investor
I am a licensed Texas real estate broker specializing in the shopping center industry with personal investments in farm and ranch properties. My parents were residential realtors, so I have been involved in real estate my entire life. Chance caught my eye when he called me inquiring about one of my ranch investments that I was marketing; he just had a great phone presence. Even though I had successfully sold all my other ranches, I decided to list my primary ranch with Chance and did an amazing job with the listing and the sale. He knows how to effectively market farm and ranch properties, then has the expertise to get it closed. He understands the importance of specializing in a market and is an expert in the East Texas market. I would highly recommend him.

Chance Turner is a star amongst Real Estate agents and I have used a lot in my life, a whole lot. He caught my attention through his unique marketing efforts in trying to introduce himself on my 1000-acre ranch just south of Dallas in Henderson County. We did not list our property with him but agreed to let him show it off-market, with viable buyers only. Chance kept in touch but was not a bother, he did not push to list the property but kept us up to speed on the market. He brought 3 buyers in total over a 7-month period, the 3rd buyer made a fulsome offer that we accepted. Even with a great offer Chance and HRC listed the property just in case the deal did not go through. As a side note Chance found us another place off the market, exactly what we wanted, that we closed on 7 days after selling our ranch in Henderson County. This other transaction took A LOT of patience and perseverance as the seller was a challenge, but Chance handled and guided us to closing very professionally. I would HIGHLY recommend Chance to anyone looking for an earnest, smart, professional, and hard-working agent. And of course, will use him again to buy or sell any property I have.

Ranch Buyer
Chance did a wonderful job helping us find a ranch in Cooke County. Even though I am a commercial broker in Dallas and understand real estate well, upon meeting Chance, I knew that he would add tremendous value. He proved himself in spades. Chance found an off-market property that we would have otherwise never seen. He did a wonderful job managing the expectations of all parties. As far as a resource he was fabulous. There were some complexities with the purchase that none of us had previously encountered. With Chance’s assistance, we were able to work through all issues to the satisfaction of everyone involved.
Moody Younger Cooke County, Texas Younger Partners
Chance was fantastic to work with on the sale of our ranch in Anderson County. He was very knowledgeable about the area, the current market, and the aspects that were important to buyers, as he owns a ranch in that area. He and his team put together a great plan to sell our ranch and I appreciated his thoughtful approach throughout the entire selling process. Chance was always very responsive to any of our questions or suggestions and he was honest and attentive to all details in a timely manner. He was able to go out and find the perfect buyer and we had it under contract in a short timeframe at a great price. Without a doubt I would work with Chance again should the opportunity arise and I can wholeheartedly endorse him for anyone looking to sell their ranch.
Lance Gasch Anderson County, TX
Chance Turner worked with us to sell our family’s ranch in Henderson County. From the onset, Chance was attentive to our needs and displayed the utmost professionalism. He provided very comprehensive market analysis to help us analyze a myriad of factors that were associated with the potential sale of the ranch. Through Chance’s guidance, high motor and experience, we were able to sell our ranch before ever making it to the market. I highly recommend Chance Turner with Hortenstine Ranch Company. While the decision to sell our ranch was a difficult one, working with Chance made the process easy and enjoyable.
