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. This upbringing instilled in him a profound appreciation for Texas's diverse landscapes—from the vast skies of the west to the lush piney woods of the east.

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 managing a successful healthcare services company. His tenure as Chief Operating Officer culminated in a rewarding equity sale.

Driven by a lifelong passion for the outdoors, Chance transitioned seamlessly into the realm of ranch brokerage with Hortenstine Ranch Company. His personal connection to the outdoors deepened when he acquired his own ranch near Athens, Texas, in 2014. Through diligent stewardship, Chance continues to transform his property into a thriving haven for wildlife, cattle, and the ultimate respite from city life.

Chance now focuses solely on assisting sellers and buyers with ranch properties. His approach blends business acumen from his corporate background with hands-on expertise gained from managing his own ranch. By delivering exceptional results and personalized service, Chance has become a trusted advisor in the industry. His deep understanding of the market and hands-on experience as a ranch owner set him apart, allowing him to facilitate successful transactions that exceed expectations. His tireless dedication ensures that each client receives a tailored experience, setting new standards in farm and ranch real estate across Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

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.

Ranch Buyer
As a Founder and Owner of a growing business, it's been very very refreshing to work with Chance and Cash and the entire team at Hortenstine Ranch Company. Not only are they extremely knowledgeable about the area...they also know a TON about the entire ranch ecosystem and were able to navigate me through one of the largest purchases of my life. This will be a process that affects my family for decades to come and they were very thoughtful and helpful in educating me on the industry and specific properties. I look forward to working with them for years to come!

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.
Peter & Michelle Bernard Henderson County, Texas
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.
