Why Use a Live Water Broker

Connecting Land with the People Who Value It

Our approach is “client-centric.” We have been recognized as one of the top ranch brokerage firms in the world by The Land Report for seven years in a row. We are not cattle guys first and recreational brokers second. We are not local brokers who try to be ranch brokers. We understand the value that recreation brings over a pure income-producing working ranch, we can speak to the value in detail, and we can provide comparable market analysis to prove it. We were founded on those principles in 2001.

What People Say About Live Water
  • “I began working with Hunter as I contacted him regarding a nice gentlemen’s farm that he was the listing agent on in North Florida. Although after visiting the property it wasn’t a fit for me, I had such a good experience with Hunter I decided to utilize him to list my smaller tract of property in North FL, that I wished to sell, as well as have him assist me in finding my future property. In 6 short months he sold my property for 94% of the asking price. One month later he assisted me in closing on a new tract in Southern GA. I had been looking on and off for over a year for the perfect next tract, but it was through his help that I found it…”

    Mike Clark
  • “When it came time to sell our 1,500-acre Montana fishing ranch we knew we would have to find a broker who understood the beauty and uniqueness of this special place. We found that in Jeff Shouse, of Live Water, and his 35 years of market knowledge. Jeff’s expertise in how to position this property and his understanding of who the buyer would be, led to an efficient process and excellent final sales price. Jeff’s friendly, pleasant and easygoing manner made for a wonderful experience!”

    Vickie Seller of Canyon Ranch
  • “A family client asked me to interview and hire a ranch broker to sell a very unique recreational ranch property. After numerous interviews with all the known brokerages and being in the ranch brokerage business myself in Texas, the choice became a no-brainer after meeting Brian Hartley. Brian understands the product as well as anyone I’ve met with. He also understands how important these rare assets are to the families that own them. I look forward to many more successful sales with Brian and give him my highest recommendation!”

    Wright Monning Cow Creek Ranch
  • “Thank you to Hunter Brant, who recently listed and sold our 600-acre property in Baker County, Florida, which contained a large custom-built home on the St. Mary’s River. Hunter handled every aspect of the sale of our property with professionalism. He personally oversaw every detail for the Seller and the Buyer that at times was complicated. We look forward to doing business with Hunter again. He has also become a trusted friend.”

  • Now that we are fully moved and settling in, Carolyn and I wanted to thank Matt and Live Water Properties for the diligence, patience and expertise. Moving 1,800 miles while vetting easements, multiple water rights, land trusts and public land access (on top of the usual issues with any real estate purchase) could have been overwhelming. By making this process efficient and bringing clarity, Matt was key to us realizing a dream. We could not be happier with our purchase!

  • When listing Huckleberry, I asked only two things of Hunter… I wanted him to communicate with me regularly and work hard. Being in the Real Estate industry for many years, I understand buyers can’t be fabricated, and he would have an arduous task ahead. His marketing, including the use of drone photography and social media, have paid off for our listing. Hunter is very knowledgeable and up to date on the opportunities that exist in the timber and hunting land market, and he is willing to spend time with seller and buyers to make the sale successful for each party. I highly recommend Hunter Brant, would use him again, and feel as though I have made a lifelong friend.
