Wright Monning was raised in Dallas, Texas and spent most weekends and every summer working cattle, hunting and fishing on his family’s fifth generation East Texas cattle ranch and other ranches around Texas. In addition to honing his skills as a sportsman, Wright developed a deep appreciation for ranches and a “hands on” understanding of the many components that ranch ownership, operation and improvement entails.
Wright has worked successfully with biologists and wildlife managers to improve private freshwater fisheries, develop waterfowl wetlands areas and improve wildlife habitat conditions for family property, and other landowners. In 2007, Wright began working with McCallum Properties focusing on raw land for investments and farm and ranch brokerage. His work experience includes understanding complex landowner issues, representing buyers, representing sellers, acting as an intermediary for multi-million dollar real estate transactions, land assembly / division / disposition, and dealing with oil, gas and aggregate leases, operations and reclamation.
In October 2012, Wright joined Hortenstine Ranch Company to focus solely on farm and ranch real estate in Texas. Wright’s understanding of the current Texas ranch market, dedication and energy ensures his clients’ best interests and specific needs are fully met. Wright lives in Dallas and is the father of two delightful children, a five year-old son, Wright III, and eleven year-old daughter, Wynne. In his free time, Wright enjoys hunting, fishing and being outdoors with his family and friends.
Connect with Wright
Wright has as much knowledge about land, ag, cattle and recreation as anyone I have ever met. His experience and knowledge both increase the properties he will be able to access as well as avoid potential problems that certain ranches could present to a new landowner. Wright’s team executed perfect when it came to selling our property. Could not say enough good things about dealing with Wright and our experience with him.

Selling a ranch is a very personal and emotional event in a persons life. Wright Monning of Hortenstine Ranch Company made it pleasurable. The attention to detail and handholding we received throughout the negotiation of the transaction was remarkable. Wright’s market knowledge and relationships within the community really set them apart from other listing firms. I highly recommend Hortenstine Ranch Company if you are in the market to sell or buy a ranch property. You will not be disappointed.
