Licensed in MT, WY

A ranch real estate agent in south-central Montana, Dane spent his formative years on the family ranch near Luther, Montana. Early on, he learned the benefits of hard work and the satisfaction that comes from growing up on a Montana ranch and the values instilled from that lifestyle. He attended Red Lodge High School and Montana State University in Bozeman, graduating in 2003 with a degree in Consumer Science.

Surrounded by the beautiful mountains of south-central Montana, some 60 miles from Yellowstone National Park, Dane learned the outdoor skills of hunting and fishing, becoming an expert in both big game and bird hunting, as well as a highly skilled fly fisherman. These activities impressed upon him the importance of nature and of protecting it with reasonable conservation and management efforts that will preserve the beauty of Montana.

While still attending college, Dane started an agricultural fencing business, spending his summers running a crew that provided fences for large-scale ranches. During that time, Dane developed strong contacts and relationships with his clients. He gained practical ranch operation experience managing the Willow Creek Ranch, an 8,500-acre irrigated/ dryland ranch running seven hundred fifty cow/calf Red Angus and six hundred fifty Blackface sheep. In addition to the normal duties of ranch management, Dane was responsible for the haying operation and management of six cowboys.




He brings a keen eye for farm and ranch real estate to the table and will always represent his clients with the highest professional standards in the acquisition or selling of farm and ranch property.

Dane resides outside Joliet, Montana, with his wife, Wendy, his son, and his four beautiful daughters. In addition to selling farm and ranch property, Dane also raises horses and yellow labs. He enjoys passing down equestrian skills, as well as hunting, fishing, camping, and recreation with his wife and kids.
