Alex Robertson is an Oregon farm and ranch broker, and part of the Fay Ranches team. Alex grew up in Central Oregon, living on various horse ranches owned by his family. With his ranch-centered upbringing, he developed a passion for horses, cattle and rodeo—specifically, timed events. Alex participated on the rodeo team for Redmond High School in Oregon, which led him to Walla Walla, Washington for college rodeo. From there, Alex spent more than a decade traveling the United States as a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. It was this adventure and seeing many amazing ranches that continued to develop his love for the ranching lifestyle, all the while building relationships across the Western United States.
After retiring from the rodeo, Alex started the next phase of his life: running cattle, farming, hay brokerage, and the beginnings of his real estate brokerage career. Working on his ranching business, alongside many other Central Oregon ranchers and farmers, Alex has developed experience and knowledge that contributes to his career as a farm and ranch broker. The agricultural business Alex runs with his wife gives him a “boots on the ground” perspective of farm and ranch real estate, which allows him to offer more insight than most. Irrigated ground, horses and cattle have been a part of his life for as long as he can remember, and this adds to his already large depth of knowledge in the operation of farms and ranches. His knowledge of agricultural real estate is ever-expanding.
Authenticity, humility and honesty are the core values of Alex’s business practices. In his spare time, Alex enjoys running cows with his two daughters, Sophie Ann and Ellie Jo, and his wife, Heather, coaching little league, playing slow-pitch softball, having a Coors Light with friends, telling old rodeo stories, and doting on his cat, Sir Fredrick.
Testimonials for Alex Robertson
I am writing this letter in regard to Alex Robertson in the Bend, Oregon office. I recently purchased a large ranch in Oregon and worked with Alex as my agent. Over the years, I have worked with numerous realtors, buying and selling properties. That said, my experience working with Alex was top-notch. He sets a high bar. His professionalism, work ethic, and moral compass impressed me. His knowledge and friendly demeanor assured me I was working with the right person. He was thoughtful with his questions and answers and attentive to every detail. He was in motion on all fronts and was always available to answer my questions, clarify concerns, and be a trusted guide with documents, amendments, and counters. He had my back - but still kept it real and forthright. Due to the expedited closing deadline, we worked closely, and he made himself available from morning to night. He was responsive and always followed through promptly. I felt confident he was representing my best interests. Without question, I will work with him again. He proved himself to be a person who operates with integrity, kindness, and transparency. Equally important to note, Alex is humble and gracious. His acts of kindness and appreciation towards me as a client will be remembered and are deeply appreciated. Alex is a genuine person and an outstanding realtor. All said, I wanted to share my experience in working with Alex Robertson. I believe it is important to share the good in people and express appreciation.
