George is a Montana Ranch Real Estate Agent who brings a lifetime of experience managing, owning and living on farms and ranches in the Rocky Mountains. With over 35 years as a petroleum landman and right of way agent working directly with ranch families on the land, he has developed strong relationships all over central Montana and northwest Wyoming. His specialty is in recreational and wildlife conservation properties based on many years of his passion for hunting and fishing in the west.
Buying and selling ranch real estate dovetails nicely with his current duties operating the farm he owns near Edgar, Montana along the Clark’s Fork of the Yellowstone River, and managing the family ranch on the Stillwater River near Absarokee, Montana. Hobbies include breeding registered purebred American Berkshire hogs and Labrador retrievers, horses and, of course, flyfishing and upland bird hunting.
Born in Southampton, Long Island to a New York family who owned an iconic Wyoming ranch for several decades, George moved to Cody as a young boy and grew up hunting, and fishing with his father, a famous elk hunting guide. He spent his teenage years packing horses into the wilderness for the US Forest Service in summer and wrangling and guiding for his dad and godfather in the fall. After graduating from Duke University, the school that bears his great grandfather’s name, George dreamed of returning to the west and owning his own ranch someday. That dream finally became a reality in 1996 when he closed on the D H Ranch, where he makes his home today.
George’s many friendships with ranch families developed over many years of hunting and fishing, and his work leasing minerals makes him well suited to represent both Buyers and Sellers in farm and ranch real estate. George is licensed in Montana and looks forward to helping others achieve their goal of owning their own piece of the last best place!
