Neil was raised in a small ranching community in Northern California. From an early age, he was introduced to the values that a lifestyle of ranching and farming can instill in a young man: A never say quit attitude, honesty, dependability, and self-reliance were all learned at a young age.
In 1986, a move from the ever-growing state of California to the recreational and scenic Flathead Valley in Montana enabled him to start a construction business that sustained for 30 years. Priding himself on the ranching values his parents instilled, he built his business on the foundation of quality, attention to detail, and honesty. After 18 years in Kalispell, Montana growing his construction business and starting a family, he found his way to Buffalo, Wyoming. In 2004 he decided to apply the same principles and values he had used in the construction trade to the real estate industry in Buffalo. For ten years, Neil worked in the residential and commercial end of real estate, finding that he was most successful in the raw and relatively vacant land industry. In 2014 he decided to get back to his roots and has focused on the working and recreational ranch field for the last five years in Wyoming, helping buyers and sellers accomplish their goals. The transition from residential and commercial sales to ranch sales was a breath of fresh air. The friendships and the relationships developed in the ranch sales industry with customers and clients are the lifeblood of his business. The respect and reputation garnered by simply doing what you say you will do, when you will do it, and holding true to your word tend to bring Neil and like-minded clients together. Neil is proud to be a part of Fay Ranches, Inc because of their stellar reputation and reach, and looks forward to bringing that brand of service to the clients and customers of Wyoming.
When not diligently representing Wyoming land, Neil finds himself very active in the Buffalo community. Outside of coaching youth baseball and supporting the local Chamber of Commerce, he has been a member and participant in many wildlife organizations from Pheasants Forever, the local Walleye chapter, and others. He enjoys spending time in the Big Horn mountains with his two children, Trevor and Calli, and his life partner Barbara. Neil has been a lifelong outdoorsman and enjoyed many opportunities to hunt and fish across the northwest and Mexico. From shrimping off the coast Sinaloa Mexico to duck and goose hunting in the famed Sacramento Valley, California to exploring the Bob Marshal wilderness in Montana, they have all created life long memories. Between the cabin in the Mountains and a small home in Teacapan, Mexico, there is always a place to go to recharge the batteries, spend time with his family, and remind himself of how his love for the land began.
