"We met Mark Harman in April 2020, and he served as our broker to help us find our ideal Texas ranch. Mark has a remarkable real estate and ranch skill set, including the foresight to engage a Wildlife Biologist to provide us expert counsel on how to handle the deer population on the 940-acre ranch we wanted to purchase. Mark always had our best interest in mind as we worked through these and other issues, and kept the deal on track. Without Mark’s expertise, extensive diligence and incredible hard work, the deal would not have closed. Mark also provided us with great counsel and contacts to choose a ranch manager and custom home builder. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Mark, and highly recommend him for premier land acquisition in Texas."

Ranches for Sale in Texas
The Lone Star State stands as one of the most iconic cattle and ranching histories since the republic was formed in 1836. Texas is massive (it’s second-largest behind Alaska). Venture from East Texas pines and rivers, to the deserts of West Texas across the sprawling high plains of the Texas Panhandle, the Edwards Plateau, and the Texas Hill Country down into the gulf coast region. With ten natural regions (or ecoregions) there’s an extreme variety in the land and habitat by region. Ranches vary in usage from commercial hunting and exotic high-fenced ranches to large cattle-grazing lands and quail-hunting grounds. With strong tax incentives from agricultural exemptions, you can still see thriving populations of longhorn cattle and well-managed white-tailed trophy deer herds. Gulf coast fishing is a common routine for the entire state, and with 730 airports (the second most in every state in the country) flying is often the most advantageous way to make the state feel a little less giant. The Guadalupe Mountains stand at over 8,700 feet above sea level in West-Texas, a disrupting site for those who still assume Texas is only a desert flatland. Texas has seen an influx of inhabitants from neighboring states in an effort to take advantage of no state income tax, and the favorable layout of large cities and wide-open spaces. It’s possible to be entirely isolated in many parts of the state while being within a 60-minute drive of a large city, airport, and all the amenities. There’s something beautiful for everyone here, whether it’s hills, mountains, desert, high plains or forest. Whatever view you love, you can find it in Texas.
