Clayton graduated from Texas Tech University where he earned a BBA in International Business. He spent a year as a booking agent for Blair Worldwide Hunting located in Flagstaff, AZ before moving to Austin, TX where he worked as a property manager for Industrial Properties Corporation for 7 years. Clayton’s father unexpectedly passed away in 2006 and he began running the ranch and turning what was previously a low-profit enterprise into a thriving hunting and cattle ranch.
The move to ranch real estate in 2010 was an easy one. Clayton’s contagious passion for the land matches his zeal to aid landowners in the marketing and sale of their property. He’s got the same sparkle in his eye and penchant for land stewardship that his great-great-grandfather, James Clayton Stribling, had in 1882 when he purchased the Llano County ranch where Clayton and his family reside. With a knack for marketing and the ability to relate to “all walks of life”, he makes strangers feel like old friends. And, because of his firsthand experience working and owning a ranch, he brings authenticity, experience, and understanding to every transaction.
