Rick Kusel


Rick has been involved with agriculture and the outdoors his entire life. He grew up in western Iowa on the family grain and livestock farm and has been successfully selling farms and ranches in Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska for over 18 years. After working a couple of years in the Wyoming oilfields, Rick was able to move back home to Iowa and purchase the family farm from his grandparents where he raised corn, soybeans, small grains, and alfalfa in addition to operating a 1500 head cattle feedlot, a farrow to finish hog operation, an 80 head cow herd, and a small trucking business. In 1994 Rick moved to Akron, Colorado where he ventured into the John Deere business and worked as a salesman and was soon promoted to General Manager of a very successful dealership where he worked until 2002. Rick received his Colorado Real Estate license in 2000 and soon after he decided to devote his attention entirely to the real estate and management industry. Rick graduated from Western College of Auctioneering in Billings, Montana in June, 2007 and has assisted several auction companies as either an auctioneer or ringman, as well as personally conducting many successful auctions. Rick has always been an avid outdoorsman and has filled many days either, hunting, fishing or trapping in several states and has a great appreciation for the majesty of the outdoors. Rick was also a volunteer fireman for 20 years. He served at both the local and state levels with the Iowa Cattleman’s Association as a board member and a director, and was named as one of the “Outstanding Young Cattlemen” in the State of Iowa in 1990. Rick is very active in his community and church. He and his wife Jessica were married in 2016 and they love to spend time with their children and grandchildren. Rick is currently a Broker Associate in Colorado and a Salesperson in Nebraska and Kansas, specializing in agricultural and recreational properties. He continues to operate his own cow herd and also consults for several farms and ranches in multiple western states. His life-long involvement in farming, ranching, agri-business and real estate coupled with the dedication he directs towards his clients makes him a great addition to Hayden Outdoors.
