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.
$2,000,000  •  482 acres
Tucked into a secluded valley at the end of a mile-long private road, you will discover the uniquely beautiful 482 acres of a true Hidden Valley Ranch (a.k.a. Esperanza Ranch), with BLM on both sides and gorgeous views of Grand Mesa and the Battlement Range. Approximately 130 combined acres of quality grass hay and lush grass pastures are irrigated by historic and plentiful water rights. With the 42 AUM BLM Grazing Lease, cattle can be run year around with no need to transport them anywhere. The ranch boasts excellent hunting opportunities due to its location within GMU 421 (which offers over the counter elk tags). Deer and elk (seasonally) frequently can be viewed from living room windows. The ranch has the only ATV access road to excellent hunting grounds, which includes the 1000± acre BLM grazing lease, on adjacent Red Mountain. Two homes, a bunk house, and several high quality outbuildings permit utilization of the ranch to its fullest. A gas well provides free natural gas to the homes. Purchase of the mineral rights, which provide a modest monthly income, is negotiable. Perfectly located less than one hour from Grand Junction, which boasts excellent commercial air service and amenities, and about 5 miles from the quaint town of Collbran, the ranch is only 40 minutes away from the Powderhorn Ski Resort. This ranch has been proudly owned by one family for fifty years. If you are looking for a secluded ranch with complete privacy (even the two homes are hidden from one another), this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
$1,150,000  •  300 acres
Picture the great American West, and tales of cowboys and Indians, stagecoaches and cattle drives are sure to come to mind! Stumpy Creek Ranch is the property everyone imagines when dreaming of a Western Colorado ranch. This is an authentic western property with a vast amount of history behind it. For instance, the cabin on this ranch was a stagecoach house used by the Sanderson and Co. Stagecoach on its route between Gunnison and Montrose, with the outline of its original placement still visible on the hillside on bright spring mornings. The property hosts 123 irrigated pastures and meadows with Stumpy Creek flowing right through the middle of this beautiful ranch. This hidden gem is very unexpected upon arrival to the boundary line, and even though you are only ¾ of a mile to the access from Hwy 50 down a county road, you feel deep in the heart of the country side. For the past several years the owners have made this a family destination, where they enjoyed the historic cabin, peacefully quiet setting, privacy, its beautiful surroundings, views of the Cimarron Mountains and abundant wildlife that take sanctuary on this property. From wild turkeys in the Cottonwood Creek bottoms, to cattle and horses calmly grazing across irrigated pastures, you’re sure to feel the power of nature. Cow elk calve in the willows in the spring, and elk herds and mule deer migrate down to this secluded valley in the fall and winter from the higher country of the Black Canyon. You’ll even have access to the thousands of acres of BLM that runs along the Gunnison River. Walk across your ranch and be taken back in time. This is a great opportunity to own an amazing property, a truly authentic piece of western Colorado history.
