My passion as a ranch broker begins with a life-long obsession with maps. One of my earliest memories is sitting at a coffee table with an old family map of Texas spread from one end to the other. Even at that young age I was fascinated by the depictions of mountains, plains, rivers and creeks - and the stories my father told me about these places.
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where many of my first experiences in nature were found with a spinning rod and a small creek beside our home. I later moved north of the Red River to pursue a degree in Entrepreneurship and Venture Management from the Price Business School at the University of Oklahoma.
It was here that I found a passion for not just being outside but for exploring the deep woods, canyons and hills of Central Oklahoma. Hunting opportunities in Oklahoma are numerous, and together with friends, we spent many mornings in winter wheat fields and sloughs pursuing ducks and geese, and just as many evenings perched in trees chasing Central Oklahoma whitetail.
I began working with Hortenstine Ranch Company in 2016 as a summer intern. I was fortunate to assist with several large & complex projects, attend meetings with Fortune 500 companies & corporate executives and experience first-hand the process of land brokerage so early in my life. In the fall of 2017, while completing my business degree, I received my Texas Real Estate License.
In the Spring of 2018, I led a small team of classmates in developing a business plan around a process to reengineer American-grown corn husks into a product ideal in size and texture for the American tamale industry. We applied, competed and were awarded 1st Place Winner in the High Growth Undergraduate Division for the i2E Love's Entrepreneur Cup - a statewide collegiate competition for real world, competitive business plans.
In the fall of 2018, I started full time with Hortenstine Ranch Company and became a licensed Real Estate Sales Agent in Oklahoma in the spring of 2019. I have been fortunate to find a rewarding career assisting both buyers and sellers of farm, ranch and recreational land throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Whether assisting a buyer with comprehensive market analytics, value assessment and negotiation or helping a seller determine their goals and capitalize on their investment, I am most proud of the relationships built throughout the process that last long after the closing table.
