At 21 years old, I went into a partnership with my dad and we built and opened a beer bar and restaurant called the Suds Hut. I owned that from 1968 thru 1981. During that time I also had an outfitting and guiding business taking hunters into the mountains for a week at a time. When I sold the bar, I went into the excavating business and subdividing of property which, of course, lead to the real estate in 1982 and I have been doing that ever since.
I have been a real estate broker since 1992 and have owned my own company all that time I have for 30 years specialized in farm and ranch sales, my largest single sale is 13 million and my largest sale to one client is 20 million.
Hobbies: I was a trap shooter for about 4 years and traveled into Canada and the western U.S. and, if I don’t say so myself, was pretty good. I also rodeoed as a “bulldogger “ [ steer wrestling] for about 8 years. Shooting is my main hobby though along with horse and mule packing into the backcountry. I used to ride snowmobiles a lot but now enjoy riding side by side 4 wheelers.
