Hunter was born and raised in Central Oregon and grew up enjoying hunting, fishing, and rodeo. Team roping and big game hunting continue to be some of his favorite past times. Before starting his ranch brokerage career, he worked on several Central Oregon ranches, excavation companies and in the logging industry. Managing these ranches and being connected to the ranch lifestyle has brought valuable hands-on experience overseeing cattle, hay and farming. His experience and knowledge in ranching along with his connections to the Central and Eastern Oregon region are an asset to the Fay Ranches team.

Testimonials for Hunter Hicks
I want you to know what a great experience Ruth and I have had in working with “Team Hicks” of Fay Ranches in the purchase of Dutch Flat Ranch. From the initial enquiry and thru out the entire purchase Jerry, Hunter and Jesica have been so responsive and accommodating to all our questions and requests, your knowledge and experience when it comes to the purchase and ownership of ranch property is invaluable. I can't help to smile when I think of the time you spent driving us around in your side by side viewing the property and going to all its many corners, feeding us while we looked in awe at grazing elk and exploring the old sawmill site. I want you to know that not only did we purchase our “dream property” but we feel we have made some lifelong friends through this process.
Our family recently had the pleasure of working with Jerry, Hunter, and Jesica Hicks of Faye Ranches as we purchased recreational property in NE Oregon. The communication and follow up during the whole process far exceeded our expectations, especially since we were purchasing from out of state. Our family has been involved with countless real estate transactions over the years, and it was truly a pleasure working with the Hicks team. We would highly recommend the Hicks team at Faye Ranches for anybody looking to purchase or sell properties.
For the past 3 years my wife Sue and I have been working with Jerry, Hunter, and Jesica "Team Hicks" in search of the perfect ranch property for us and our family. Jerry and Team Hicks have been invaluable in this search with their experience and knowledge of ranch properties. This is our first purchase of ranch property, and we had a lot to learn. We really appreciate the advise and information we received from Team Hicks during the search of many different properties. The ranch property we settled on buying was the right ranch for us, and we did so with confidence. Riding around the ranch in Jerry's side by side he explained so many aspects of the hunting potential and ranch developments which could be improved upon on the ranch. We are looking forward to making the ranch our own and enjoying many years with the whole family. Along with this we have met a wonderful family in Team Hicks, and have developed a friendship for years to come.
