Jeffrey Soele

Jeff Soele is not just another Realtor, he's a hands-on rancher. In addition to his 40 years in ranch sales, Jeff has a 40-year history in ranch investment and management, and has been a scientific Whitetail Deer breeder for 10 of those years. During that time, Jeff has personally owned many ranches for hunting, breeding exotics, ranch development, and investment. In fact, everyone at Texas Best Ranches is a hands-on rancher. This puts us in the unique position of being able to advise and guide our clients in all aspects of ranch ownership.

Although he grew up in the city, Jeff Soele always had a passion for the great outdoors, hunting, fishing, horses and more. Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas Jeff attended the University of Texas at San Antonio where he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Pre Law. "I always thought I wanted to be a lawyer, but got into the real estate business in 1984, and never looked back." Jeff has been specializing in selling Texas Hill Country live water ranches with creeks, rivers, lakes and springs for the past 40 years. He also sells and negotiates for exotic hunting properties, horse ranches, commuter estates and exclusive South and West Texas acreages. "Every ranch has a story and there is always something new to learn, which for me, is a large part what makes this business so rewarding."

With over 40 years of buying and selling ranches as a real estate broker, Jeff has the practical knowledge to guide his clients through a well-executed sale or purchase of a ranch, and in the finer points of after the fact ranch operation. Jeff is comfortable discussing live water potentials (new lakes, dams, waterfalls, etc.) landscape design possibilities, buying equipment, clearing land, building and maintaining fences and roads, purchasing domestic and exotic game stock, choosing feed, livestock shelters, etc. "I can offer my clients the benefit of hands-on experience in numerous areas of owning and running a ranch, and I'm happy to assist clients long after the deal has closed. I love this land, and it makes me happy to help people find their peace and passion on a designer ranch suited to their personal needs and lifestyle."
