Born and raised in the once sleepy ski town of Whitefish, Montana, Vinny was immersed in Montana’s great outdoors from an early age, helping him to develop a great appreciation for wildlife and the land that supports it. From fly fishing for rainbows near Glacier Park to stalking white-tailed deer in the Sweet Grass Hills to chasing pheasants in the flatlands of Eastern Montana and sweet-talking elk with his bow in hand, he has traipsed around Montana since he was 7.
Vinny has called Bozeman, Montana home since 2000. Shortly after graduating from Montana State University with a degree in Business Management, Vinny took on the task of building an existing hunting and fishing business into one of the premier outfitters in the state.
While building Montana Hunt and Fish Company, Vinny was able to work on some of the highest-profile ranches in the area, expanding his knowledge of ranches and learning to identify what makes a property exceptional. From habitat and wildlife management to farming and ranching, Vinny gained invaluable on-the-ground experience during the decade of owning his company.
In 2012, Vinny joined Fay Ranches and has applied his knowledge and business acumen to the ranch brokerage world with immediate success. Conservation and conservation-minded landowners are what attracted Vinny to the Fay Ranches brand, and he works hard to contribute to preserving the west and assisting in making a landscape become as productive as it can be, both from an agricultural and wildlife standpoint.
Since his start with Fay Ranches, Vinny has represented buyers and sellers while they navigate through an array of transactions ranging from a few hundred thousand dollars to large scale, complicated and highly prolific 8 figure deals. He takes great pride and enjoyment working with buyers, sellers, attorneys, accountants, and ranch managers through the course of pre and post closings.
When Vinny isn’t on a ranch or looking at a property with clients, he can be found in the field with his English Setters whenever time allows. Aside from upland bird hunting he also enjoys, fly fishing, big game hunting and skiing.
