John Anderson grew up in ranching country where he gained a sincere appreciation of the abundant natural resources that surrounded him. Hiking, hunting, and fishing pristine alpine lakes in his childhood nurtured his love of the outdoors. John’s love of the outdoors led to a deep fascination regarding the history of the “American West” and the current efforts to conserve our natural resources.

Instilled with a love of ranching and a deep desire to work with natural resources, John attended Oregon State University earning an Agricultural Science degree in 1996 with a minor in fisheries and wildlife focusing on rangeland management and water rights. Subsequently, he received a Post Baccalaureate in Civil Engineering. In 1998 John began his real estate career, concentrating on selling recreational properties. In 2006 he was awarded the top 1% of real estate sales in the entire state, closing over $30 million. In 2014 John was nominated Top Agent in Oregon.

Longing to get back to his roots, John purchased a small farm to raise cattle and horses. During his leisure time, John loves to hunt, fish, camp, hike and ride horses into wilderness areas with his son Joshua.

John also worked as a guide in Idaho on the edge of the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. Long days on horseback and weeks deep within the Idaho wilderness deepened John’s desire to seek the refuge of the mountains. John Muir once wrote, “The mountains are calling, and I must go..”.  This famous quote is one of John’s favorites because so few words mean so much to one who loves the mountains.

Selling ranches and large recreational properties is his dream. John’s knowledge and love of the outdoors is contagious.

John looks forward to continuing to help his buyers grasp their dreams and his sellers maximize their investment. You can meet up with this MT Ranch Broker at the Stock Farm Club in Hamilton Montana, on the river casting a line, in the mountains, or for a cup coffee at a local cafe.
