We engaged the services of Scott Hawes, Principle Broker, Fay Ranches Inc. in Prineville, Oregon, to sell our 575 acre irrigated ranch. The results were very positive. My partners and I have been in the real estate business for forty years. We have met and worked with a wide variety of real estate agents around the state. We agree that this has been a very tough sell, but Scott got it done and handled things in a first class manner. Always attentive to details, conscientious and honest, he also has a knack for working with people. Then too, his affiliation gives the marketing effort a nationwide range, which was especially important with respect to our property.
