Equestrian Ranch Real Estate

What We Do


Let us Help!

Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a horse property, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! Locating the perfect ranch is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your horse property-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.

While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a horse property easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess ranches for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.

I will let you know the current ranches on the market, and ranches that are coming on the market. I know horse areas and values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start to actually look at property.

Your First Step

Your first step to buying a horse property is to first let us know your needs – breed of horses, riding style, numbers of horses, will you be boarding, etc. Many questions to think about to further help you achieve your goals.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes. I have excellent mortgage brokers my clients have worked with and they know how to help you achieve your goals.

Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.

I Will Find The Right Homes For You

Once you’ve been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them.

I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications.

I Will Help You Every Step Of The Way

I will help you complete your  inspections with qualified inspectors and guide you to get your questions answered about land use, give you a list of preferred contractors to do any construction work and help you close your purchase in a timely manner. My top priority is to make sure that your horse property buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.

My online marketing system allows me to make information accessible 24-hours a day, and to respond immediately and directly to each and every prospective buyer. From my website, prospective buyers can get information immediately about your property. They can access my site 24 hours a day and view your property listing! Through my Personal Home Search, your listing will be sent by e-mail to every prospective buyer in my database, where your home meets their criteria. Plus it will be e-mailed automatically to future prospective buyers as well.

Traditional Marketing

I will create a unique advertising platform specific to your horse property. As a member of our local board of realtors your property will be put in the MLS for the entire world to see along with me personally pitching it to other realtors at our pitch sessions and doing my own specific advertising to agents as well as buyers.

My extensive relationship with other horse people in all genres of the horse industries gets you a much broader exposure. I personally have been involved in thoroughbred racing since 1976. I have clients in the polo, dressage and jumping world. There are no other agents in Southern California that have the people connections I have in the racing world.

Other agents can immediately access your property information by computer. I also regularly publish in magazines and newspapers in the area and send out direct mail pieces to let the right people know your home is for sale.

Pricing Your Home

As a college accredited agent with courses in Appraisal I understand how to properly price your real estate. My extensive knowledge of the Southern California horse property areas will help me to get you the best value for your property. I can also help you increase the value of your horse property guiding you on how to prepare the property for sale.

Every Step Of The Way…

Remember, I will be working for you every step of the way to make sure that you get the highest possible price for your horse property in the shortest period of time.

About Equestrian Ranch Real Estate

Understanding the needs of the different horse disciplines is easily
comprehensive to me with my extensive horse experience in the
thoroughbred racing industry along with my lifelong passion for
competing, showing and trail riding horses. With a family background in
the construction industry I understand land use, the language of
building and the needs of the developers along with values of raw land,
potential uses of land and zoning. Other aspects of horse properties
need to be considered such as the current business on the property.  We
cover all sizes of horse ranches, from the small back yard horse
property to the larger commercial boarding and breeding operations. With
a lifetime of horses, my many contacts come from the thoroughbred racing
world to dressage, eventing and jumpers, to team penning and trail
riders. With that lifetime of horses in Southern California my knowledge
of locations of properties to fit your needs is extensive.

Mission Statement

Horses have always been my passion and they have taken care of me, and
so when I can help them I do. One of my favorite charities is ‘After the
Finish Line’ who helps retired race horses with many of their special
needs. I assist AFTL with their charity functions in many different
ways. I also have a passion for the Wild Horses & Burros in our country
and try to bring awareness to their plight. There are many different
organizations which try to educate the public, stop horse slaughter,
help mustangs to be adopted. Any interest or questions you may have I
would be delighted to answer, please contact me. Know that a portion of
my income from selling horse properties will go to help the horses.
Thank you.
