Reynolds Land & WaterA family-owned farm square in the path of northern Front Range development hits the auction block later this month. But it’s not the land that has everyone talking. It’s the water.

“Water is the new gold,” said Scott Shuman, a partner in Hall and Hall, the auction house that will sell 411 acres of the Reynolds Farm and 13.75 shares in the Highland Ditch, along with the big-ticket item: 276 units of Colorado-Big Thompson water.

As Colorado’s population has grown, so has demand for water. Shuman said he expects farmers, cities and developers to try to get a piece of the Reynolds Farm portfolio. [read more]

Waggoner RanchA Texas landmark with a matchless legacy changes hands for the first time in history.

It's one thing to get a chuckle out of the state's highest elected official. But it's an entirely different situation when the longest-serving governor in Texas history is laughing at you. "The chances of the Waggoner selling?" Rick Perry asked me.

The year was 2009, and the two of us were seated in a barren conference room in some nondescript state office building off Congress Avenue a few blocks south fo the state capitol. [read more]

House Hunting By Helicopter Takes Off

Airsickness bags, aviation headsets and Dramamine are the new essentials for a select group of real-estate agents, who take top clients up in helicopters to show multimillion-dollar listings.

“We don’t do it for just anyone—they have to be very well-qualified,” said Gwen Banta, a Los Angeles-based luxury broker who has flown clients over $11 million and $16 million homes in Lake Arrowhead and Mammoth Lakes, Calif. “You come in over the lake and get that view and they’re sold on the area before they ever touch ground.” [read more]

"The market has been nothing short of excellent. Farm and ranch are pretty big words, and mean different things to different people. To a lot of people, it is a large, landscaped property with a cattle business. To others, it's a retreat in the mountains," shares Bill McDavid, a Hall and Hall agent in Missoula, Montana.

Across the board in farm, ranch and country estate homes, there has been a short supply of quality properties... [read more]

Bull Creek RanchPurchase of a range in north-central Wyoming will allow 'trade' acquisition of state lands adjacent to new owner's current property.

The sale of a scenic 7,651-acre ranch at the foot of the Bighorn Mountains in north-central Wyoming will benefit local ranchers and farmers, recreationists, the City of Buffalo, State of Wyoming and others if a pending land exchange is approved.

Summerfield K. Johnston Jr., former chief executive of Coca-Cola Enterprises, purchased the Bull Creek Ranch five miles southwest of Buffalo with the intent of exchanging the deeded land for State of Wyoming trust lands adjacent to his Flying H Ranch.

The Flying H, which is near the small town of Big Horn, also sits at the base of the Bighorn Mountains. Johnston has wanted to acquire the state lands adjacent to the Flying H since purchasing that ranch in 1985. [read more]

VERNON - It's official. The historic Waggoner Ranch has sold. The deal closed late last week.

The best news is that the new owner, rancher, sports team owner and real estate developer Stan Kroenke, plans to keep the ranch intact and in livestock and ag production.

"Absolutely it will stay in production," said Kroenke's broker, Joel Leadbetter, of Hall and Hall, based in Bozeman, Montana. "One of the key reasons that Stan looked at this ranch was for the diversity of production - cattle, horses, farming and oil and gas."

He also said Kroenke has no intention of splitting it up and selling it off in pieces.

"If anything, he would add to, not subtract from," said Leadbetter. [read more]

Waggoner RanchBillionaire Stan Kroenke, owner of what are now the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams, has purchased a massive Texas ranch that had a $725 million price tag. The exact purchase price was not disclosed, but if it came anywhere near the asking price the ranch would become the priciest ever to sell in the U.S.

The 510,000-acre W.T. Waggoner Ranch spans nearly 800 square miles and is believed to be the largest ranch behind a single fence in the U.S., said Joel Leadbetter of Hall and Hall, who represented Kroenke in the deal. [read more]

Waggoner RanchA sprawling, 535,000-acre Texas ranch will be sold to billionaire Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke in a deal approved by a court Tuesday.

The terms weren’t disclosed, but the property had been listed for $725 million.

A sale price anywhere close to that figure would far outstrip any other in dollar value for a U.S. ranch, surpassing hedge-fund giant Louis Bacon’s 2007 purchase of Colorado’s Trinchera Blanca Ranch for $175 million, [read more]
