JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Wyoming ranch real estate broker Matt MacMillan has been honored as Live Water Properties’ 2023 Top Producing Broker. MacMillan’s transactions represented an impressive $52.8 million in real estate sales volume across four states-Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, Montana-to position him at the top of the national brokerage’s 27-person firm.
Macye Maher, Founding Partner/CFO at Live Water Properties, commended MacMillan stating, “Matt has the ability to talk to and identify with people of all ages who enjoy the recreational pursuits of the Rockies, therefore he’s the ideal guide for purchasing or selling a legacy ranch. Congratulations to Matt for his past and future wyoming ranch deals and unwavering relationships.”
MacMillan’s success in the wyoming ranch market is due to his profound impact on his clients. Maher mentioned that a previous Buyer who MacMillan represented said, “When moving 1,800 miles while vetting easements, multiple water rights, land trusts, and public land access could have been overwhelming.” With Matt’s assistance the Buyer declared, “By making this process efficient and bringing clarity, Matt was the key to us realizing a dream.”
This is not the first or even the second time that Matt has achieved the Top Producer award! Read further to see how many times Matt has been at the top. Since joining Live Water Properties in 2005, MacMillan’s remarkable track record boasts over $515 million in sales. In 2023 alone, MacMillan orchestrated significant deals, such as the Sweetwater Ranch in Vail, CO, last listed at $21.95 million, and the Teton Travis Ranch in Alta, WY, listed at $15.95 million. Other past notable sales include the Lucas Ranch listed for $25 million in Jackson Hole, Kuper Farm in Dalhart, TX listed at $29 million and the 193,000-acre Split Rock Ranch in Lander, WY listed at $12.5 million.
To MacMillan, the heart of his work is relationships. “The foundation of my business is building long-term relationships, based on trust and transparency,” said MacMillan. “I am very grateful and appreciative to my clients for placing their inherent trust in me. I deeply value these relationships, and they continue to motivate me to go above and beyond in delivering exceptional results and ensuring the best outcome in each transaction.”
The complexity of commitment is also part of the success matrix. What are the struggles and rewards of traveling to Madison County, Montana, to list and negotiate for your Seller? Matt sold a fishing lodge on twenty acres this fall. He goes on to say, “We are fortunate to live and work in one of the most beautiful places in the world. These are big states, so time in the truck is a necessary part of the game to accommodate property tours and source new business. Fortunately, I still enjoy the travel aspect, and if I can mix in some fishing or bring family along, all the better!”
“Matt MacMillan is the definition of a professional Broker. Every day he is focused on working for the benefit of our clients, and that hard work shows in his consistent production in 2023, which adds to his five other Live Water Properties Top Producer years in the past,” lauded John Merritt, COO/Broker at Live Water Properties. “Knowing Matt, he has already forgotten about 2023 and is charging forward in 2024!” That’s 6 Accolades for this inspiring Broker.
