Joseph Burns


As a young boy Joey grew up on a Hay farm in Arizona where he worked with his family on Burns Brothers Farms. He later attended Olivet Nazarene University where he played football and graduated with a degree in business and communications. He returned to the family farm and married his childhood sweetheart Michelle. In 1994 they left their family and friends to start new lives in western Colorado, where Joey began to sell ranch real estate. As their lives began to change so did their family. They were blessed with five children; Brayden, Brittany, Bryce, Landen and Luke, who have been home schooled. Joey progressed in the real estate community and became the proud owner of Lone Eagle Land Brokerage. His business continued to expand as Joey introduced a mapping and aerial photography company known as Land Information Systems. In addition to selling real estate Joey has had a call for missions. He has enjoyed leading philanthropic adventures to Nicaragua, Brazil and Ecuador. Joey is also the chairman of the board for Samaritan Aviation, a medical mission based in Papua New Guinea. Joey loves his work as a real estate broker, business owner and Father, and it is his goal to treat his clients with the highest level of integrity and professionalism.

Close your eyes and picture the ideal Colorado hunting ranch- something with a diverse vegetative landscape, year-round access, trophy wildlife, creek/pond frontage, and access to vast swaths of public land- you might just find yourself in the heart of the Stevens Gulch Ranch! This 3,187-acre parcel is a fantastic sporting property and home to elk, moose, bear, mountain lion, turkey, and mule deer. The current owners recently completed an extensive vegetation/water management program that transformed the property into an elk/deer mecca. This restoration was so impactful, it drew animals off Highway 133 and drastically reduced roadkill. From the dark timber and aspens along the west fork of Terror Creek, to Gambel oak ridges and pinon-juniper hillsides- you will be hard pressed to find a better hunting ranch in an over-the-counter game unit!

$3,250,000  •  63.8 acres
As unique as the namesake itself, the Cimarron Ridge Ranch peers across Ridgway’s coveted east valley- a place where irrigated hay land melts into alpine timber and breccia cliffs. Courthouse, Chimney, Coxcomb, Redcliff, and Uncompahgre peaks are shielded only by windowpanes in the Montana-log home (3,316 heated SQFT). This timeless, 3 bed/2.5 bath structure was built in 1999 and beautifully complements the ranch’s 63.8 acres. With vaulted ceilings, a two-car garage (686 SQFT), spacious master bed/bath, and a well-designed layout, the home is as functional as it is stunning. With approximately 40 irrigated acres, the land has more to offer than picturesque scenery and would make a great small-scale cow or horse operation. Working facilities, alongside custom horse stables and good fencing, have already been constructed. Within 10 minutes of The Market at Ridgway, 30 minutes of Montrose (home of a regional airport and hospital), and 1 hour from the Telluride ski slopes- the Cimarron Ridge Ranch is almost as irreplaceable as its namesake.
$3,195,000  •  1,278 acres
The Rooker Ranch is a 1,278 acre, pinion, juniper, and ponderosa pine-covered mesa, flanked by Dry Creek to the east and Cottonwood creek to the south. This seasonal live-water has carved deep sandstone canyons harboring rocky mountain elk and mule deer. Atop said mesa, surface ponds substantially improve the ranch’s sporting capability, all within OTC Game Unit 62. A 74 +/- acre BLM in holding in the center of the property is accessible to only the landowner. If 1,278 deeded acres and access to isolated public land is too constraining, 472,000 acres of general accessible BLM can be directly accessed from the east boundary. The Rooker Ranch is a good hunting property within 22 miles of Montrose, CO just off Highway 90!
$4,755,000  •  528 acres

This phenomenal internal road system, coupled with strategic vegetation management, developed surface water, and tactful landscaping is reminiscent of an African safari transposed into southwestern Colorado. Such improvements provide a rustic elegance while improving ranching and sporting capabilities. The property is teeming with wildlife and provides a gentleman’s hunt within golfcart distance of a Greg Norman course. From summer pasture to fall hunting, spring golf and a world-class home site, The Preserve at Cornerstone has it all!
