I feel compelled to write this letter of appreciation to you in response to the thoroughly gratifying experience I have enjoyed in working with key members of your team during the process of purchasing my ranch. The professionalism, preparation, and overall positive demeanor exhibited by Ryan Flair were truly impressive. I have to say that in the past I have acquired over a dozen properties and I have never before worked with a more dedicated, knowledgeable, and level headed sales professional.
I ended up purchasing three separate contiguous parcels owned by two different parties and like any ranch property transaction there were a number of issues that had to be worked through. Ryan exhibited true leadership and did great work on my behalf striving to find resolutions to problems and solutions to challenges. I could go on but the simple and most fundamental point is that you have a great team of people working for your firm and with Ryan leading the way for me I greatly enjoyed the actual experience of finding and buying my ranch.
P.S. – I am enjoying the ranch tremendously. After the purchase I worked very closely with Andy Ferre and he expertly coordinated numerous big projects for me including site cleanup, rehabilitation of a spring creek on the property that turned out magnificently, and construction of new roads, structures and fences. Andy has also been great to work with.
I must apologize for not writing this sooner. The whirlwind of making the purchase of the ranch of my dreams, setting up the facilities, and settling in have taken up some time and energy. But as that has started to come into focus, I realize just what your team has been through and done on my behalf. It is important to me that you know how much it is appreciated.
First of all, to a person, every one of your team members I have met or talked to have been friendly, helpful, and interested in my needs. I am sure you know how hard Toby Griffith and Chuck Davison worked on chasing my dream. They looked at many ranches to preview and assess them for meeting my criteria. They tracked down and sent information on dozens of places. All the while zeroing in on "the perfect ranch" for me. For over two years we sorted inventory with patience and persistence. We were on the quest together. I made several trips to view places on our list. The trips were organized, efficient, and I always had more information about each place than I knew could exist, with plenty of time for me to review. Then the call came..... When I heard the excitement in Toby's voice and had a chance to talk to Chuck who was hastily tracking down the details, I knew we were close. As with every ranch, Toby and Chuck went to take a look before having me travel. Their trip proved to be time well spent. They had gotten to know what I was looking for through all our travels and communication, and they knew this was the one. Between Toby's knowledge of the wildlife and Chuck's "whatever it takes" attitude, the guys had found "the place".
Needless to say, the transaction was handled with utmost professionalism. There were many details to pull together and we closed without a hitch.
Kudos to you Mr. Fay, for having surrounded yourself with like-minded capable people. The relaxed fun atmosphere this creates is a pleasure to be involved with. You will all experience continued success.
I hope that sometime soon, if schedules will permit, that you and your crew would come to visit.
ALL THE BEST!
Hi Ryan and Rachel,
Connie and I returned to Houston this past weekend after spending nine wonderful days at Little Fish Creek (interrupted frequently by significant donations to Walmart in Butte). Once we set up house though, it was a fabulous place to spend a few days. I must say that I was not disappointed by anything. Everything at the place was better than we expected. As you said, Randy is a great guy and did a fantastic job building the home. He even brought his scaffolding out and helped me hang my elk and deer mounts!!!! Connie and I want to thank all of you at Fay Ranches for making this a great experience for us. Your professionalism and friendliness made this a painless experience for us (except for the part when we had to wire transfer money, but I guess that couldn’t be avoided). If you need a reference from us, don’t hesitate to call on us. Once again, thanks for all your help. I don’t have B’s email address, but would appreciate it if you would forward this to him.
Connie and James
Testimonial for Ryan Flair
In the most economically stressed times, Ryan Flair and his researcher team mate, Rachel Silve, put together a comprehensive and beautiful sales material compilation for one of Montana’s reputation ranches, the Sun Ranch, and proceeded to marshal interest at good price points until successful sale of this majestic property. Ryan not only worked tirelessly and smartly to achieve the sale, he found the right buyer – one whose commitment to science and conservation was matched only by his passion to enjoy and love the Sun’s unique and diverse landscape and role in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. As I felt comfortable selling the Sun Ranch only after having placed a conservation easement to prohibit the wrong kind of development going forward, I knew statistically that selling the Sun could be made more difficult, as that easement would take developer types out of the equation. Ryan and his teammates at Fay Ranches were outstanding in mustering up the right kinds of buyers. I received multiple offers, and in the end I had the choice to see Sun Ranch go absolutely into the right people’s hands. I could not have been happier with the outcome.

Testimonial for Rob Ezell
Rob served as the listing agent for a certain commercial property in southern Oregon, owned by myself and a partner. He was able to secure a buyer resulting in a closing during the month of July 2013. Rob's professionalism, attention to details, responsiveness and follow through were exceptional. I have retained a number of real estate brokers over the years in Oregon and Montana. I will be retaining Rob in the near future to list a sporting property in Oregon.
Testimonial for Ryan Flair and Rachel Silve
Thank you for your note, I appreciate it and I had a great time working with you as well. My husband and I bought a piece of property last week and after dealing with the real estate agent it made me appreciate even more the fantastic job you did for us in our very complex transactions. Your constant attention to detail, making sure little things did not turn into big things and ability to work with all personality types really made it a fantastic experience
And Rachel, you were fantastic as well. You are in integral part of the Fay Ranches team – your attention to detail and tenacity are fantastic. These qualities and your friendly voice on the phone and make it such a pleasure to deal with you as well. If I knew you were on it I did not have to worry!!
