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
  • When Live Water Properties approached us about an exclusive listing, we were still very apprehensive about the selling of our ranch. After visiting with them in our home, we started to feel more at ease and started to realize that they certainly had the contacts to market our property. Over the course of the next two months our relationship with all the people at Live Water changed from acquaintances to friends. We really appreciated the professional yet personal manner with which we were treated. The marketing and selling of our property was difficult for us for personal reasons, but again the staff and brokers all helped to make it a smooth transition. Alex and his staff have a great ability to match property with prospective clients. Over the course of the months it took to sell our property, Live Water stayed in constant contact, informed us when they were bringing potential buyers, and always gave us a follow‐up report of the showing. Live Water Properties certainly did a tremendous job for us and I would encourage anyone who is considering the sale of a large property to contact Live Water.

  • I’ve been in the business of managing irreplaceable trout stream properties for nearly twenty years. Over that time we have participated in scores of transactions involving buying, leasing and selling almost 100 miles of pristine rivers and creeks. I’ve dealt with many brokers and agents, but none can hold a candle to the team at Live Water Properties. Not only are they passionate fly fishers, but they are consummate real estate professionals and advisers.

    As specialists in fly fishing properties for many years, they have developed what I believe is the industry’s best “Little Black Book” of trout stream enthusiasts and work tirelessly to find the perfect match of seller and buyer on every transaction. They proved their mettle by engineering a successful sale of the Yampa TailWaters on our behalf in very difficult recreational market conditions. I have enjoyed all facets of our relationship from listing to closing. Kudos to the entire Live Water crew.

  • I have purchased two ranches through Live Water Properties and frankly, would never do business with anyone else! I laugh that Alex and the other agents always deliver the bad news first on the properties I view. But, I appreciate their candor, their efficiency and their respect of my time and resources to ‘cut to the chase’.

    The Live Water office is responsive to my requests and after the transactions they have remained available to work with me to enhance the ranches for enjoyment, conservation of the environment, and resale potential. This company is unique in the real estate industry.

    Jane Brown, From Atlanta, Georgia, has purchased 2 ranches through LWP, the first located in Sublette County, Wyoming, and the latter located in Livingston, Montana.
  • Live Water Properties represented me in the acquisition of a large ranch in western Montana. With more than 80,000 thousand acres of deeded and leased land the transaction presented a myriad of issues associated with my due diligence. Live Water put its resources to work with respect to research, property inspections by truck and helicopter, and in depth negotiations. I am very impressed with their skill level, most notably their knowledge and expertise in fisheries and wildlife habitat. I also appreciate their post sale support.

    William P. Foley II, CEO of Fidelity National Financial, Inc.
  • To even think of selling the ranch was very hard. It is not only the only home I have ever known, it has been the home for four generations of Golds. Live Water was very understanding about the feelings of everyone, plus they produced a good price for the ranch. They did their job very well.

    As a friend of mine says, ‘he has all his ducks in a row.’ This equates to the company of Live Water Properties. They not only sold our ranch, but found a buyer we are very happy with. It was a joy working with all the staff at Live Water, and we feel we have made new friends.

    Pete Gold, From Rexburg, Idaho, along with his brother Kraig and father Lorin have successfully passed on their family property, a 540-acre fly fishing and waterfowl recreational ranch on the Henry’s Fork River in Idaho.
Auction

The auction method of sale is proven to generate time certainty and fair market value for sellers and buyers, exposing each property to many potential buyer candidates in order to create a competitive environment with “the market” present and actively bidding on auction day. We have strategic partnerships with the experienced auctioneers to offer our clients this useful service.
