Born and raised in Central Oregon, Jerry has specialized in the sale of large farms and ranches throughout Oregon since 2000. He has the great fortune of being well connected with the land and locals of Eastern and Central Oregon, helping to create a successful legacy of brokering the finest agricultural and recreational properties.
Jerry grew up enjoying the ranch way of life. Team roping and big game hunting in the expansive Oregon mountain ranges still remain his favorite past times. Before starting his ranch brokerage career 16 years ago, he worked on a number of area ranches and in the logging industry. Jerry has been blessed with the opportunity of managing the Fopiano Ranch (family owned since 1873), since 2007. Managing the ranch brings Jerry great joy and hands-on experience overseeing the cattle, hay, farming, timber and big game outfitting efforts. “I’m a lucky guy, to have the opportunity to manage such a pristine ranch and additionally offer my real estate service to Ranch buyers and sellers. In most cases my hands-on experience benefits many buyers and sellers.” From estate planning to grant writing, timber management to outfitting, rangeland management to budgeting, Jerry is always willing to share his knowledge.
Jerry married Kim in 1997 and together with God’s helping hand they have raised a beautiful blended family of seven. Kim is a successful escrow officer with Western Title and Escrow in Prineville, OR. She enjoys traveling with the family as they team rope across the west. Jerry is always ready to share how proud he is of his family.
“When you love what you do, it never seems like work. I’m a very LUCKY man.”
