BOZEMAN, MT – Jeff Shouse of Bozeman, MT was recently named Live Water Properties’ 2019 Top Producing Broker.* Shouse represented $28.4M in ranch sales to earn this title among the national ranch brokerage firm’s 26 brokers. One of the most noteworthy of Shouse’s sales was the spectacular Paradise Valley Ranch south of Livingston, Montana, which sold in November.
Shouse has represented clients in hundreds of million dollars’ worth of transactions over his 32 years in real estate. An avid sportsman and 45-year resident of Montana, Jeff brings an intimate knowledge of the country and an understanding of the sporting lifestyle to his work. He most enjoys the meaningful connections he has made with his clients and the land. “I’ve had a few clients tell me that the work I did for them in finding that ‘perfect property’, has impacted their lives in more positive ways than I’ll ever know,” says Shouse. “That’s humbling, gratifying, and what I’m really proud of. I’ve been at this a long time and I’ve sold a lot of ‘dirt.’ I love the business.”
Shouse joined Live Water Properties in 2013, with 25 years in real estate. “With Jeff’s long and successful history brokering ranch transactions it is no surprise that he accomplished so much in 2019. Given his vast experience and knowledge of the ranch market and loyal clientele that he has developed during his 30+ year career, Jeff was able to create a productive year by representing both sellers and buyers on a wide array of property types throughout Montana,” says John Merritt, Vice President at Live Water Properties. “Congrats to him, and we expect more of the same from Jeff in coming years.”
