A Little About Me
Mike’s primary focus is providing solutions to those who approach the selection process of an individual broker and marketing platform combination, as a risk management decision. At the core of his approach is Mike’s collaboration with a hand-picked network of trusted professionals in various disciplines across the industry. His collaborative approach, obsession with research, and a lifetime of experience at the intersection of agriculture and outdoor recreation, are what set Mike apart from the competition and allow him to deliver proven solutions to those who expect nothing less…
Mike has brokered the purchase and sale of numerous ranches in multiple states throughout the American West. As a result, he has gained a great deal of perspective to share with others regarding the regional nuances that differentiate these ranches. The vast majority of Mike’s business comes from referrals from clients with whom he has long-standing relationships that are founded upon mutual respect and unwavering trust.
As the eldest of five children, Mike grew up managing a generational row crop and cattle operation in Iowa. He then went on to complete a career as a pilot for a major US air carrier, and was also a bush pilot in Alaska. He has been an avid outdoorsman his entire life and has been involved with outfitting big game hunters and fisherman throughout the years.
Mike is fascinated with finding ways to add value to ranches via fish and wildlife habitat enhancement projects, as well as sustainably improving agricultural production. Mike is constantly researching and learning new things to share with others, and frequents ranches in Central and South America to gain additional perspective.
