I’ve been helping clients buy and sell land in the Hill Country, Central, South and West Texas – including ranches, live water, farms, hunting and recreational properties – since 1996.
I personally represent all buyers and sellers that do business with Bownds Ranches. As a 5th-generation Texas rancher and 3rd-generation ranch broker, it would be my privilege to help you find or sell your ranch.
Boone Campbell has a genuine love for land, nature and all they provide. Boone lived in Caddo, Texas (Pop. 40-ish) and he grew up working cattle on many local ranches with his father, David Campbell. Boone spent his childhood fishing the Caddo Creek and hunting dove fields in the area. If school or sports weren’t in progress, Boone was enjoying the outdoors. The Lazy T Ranch (Eastern Stephens County) is where Boone first learned about land, cattle and goats. Growing up on a working ranch, Boone was raised in an environment where a dedicated work ethic is the only way. He spent many summers and afternoons building fence, cutting cedars and hauling hay to help keep the ranch operating smoothly.
After earning two bachelor’s degrees (Business Administration in Accounting & Management) from Texas Tech University in 2008, Boone returned to the area he loves to pursue farm and ranch real estate with his father. Staying current with technological advances is a hobby of Boone’s. He enjoys learning websites, software, apps and other “gadgets” needed to obtain the information required to fully utilize the web-based marketing tools of today. Boone managed a large cattle operation in northern Stephens County until 2011. When Boone obtained his broker’s license, he dedicated all of his "working time" to farm and ranch real estate. Boone is now a member of the Texas Association of Realtors, Texas Real Estate Commission and the Stephenville Association of Realtors.
Boone Campbell is committed to protecting and conserving the land and the nature that relies on the land. Boone is an active firefighter and on the Board of the Caddo Texas Volunteer Fire Department. Boone is also the Vice President of the Caddo Wildlife Management Association. Boone believes that what is conserved and appreciated today will provide for many generations to come. When Boone is not studying or protecting the land he loves, he spends most of his time on land with his family and friends. Boone hosts annual hunts with friends from all over and he enjoys introducing or “teaching" others about the country culture. Boone resides in the small town of Graham, Texas with his loving wife, Stephanie, and their two children, Calder and Davee.
Jim graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont with an English Department degree in American Literature in 1976. Though not recruited for the ski team, he soon made the traveling team and competed in the Division 1 NCAA Championships three out of four years. One highlight for him was third place in the Eastern Collegiate Championships in Downhill as a freshman. He was also Alpine Ski Team Captain senior year. “Many of my ski racing teammates and competitors have become my lifelong friends.” Some of these ski racing contacts led to sales and marketing work with K2 Skis through 1981.
Adventures with the ski team and then K2 inspired Jim to head West to Colorado. Jim made the move to real estate in 1988. It was a perfect fit. With a wealth of sales experience and a love of Colorado living, selling real estate in the Roaring Fork Valley was a natural progression for Jim. He has been with Mason Morse since 1994 and is consistently one of the top producers in the MLS. In addition, Jim has spent 12 years on the Board of the Aspen Valley Land Trust and was President for 3 of those years. “Volunteering for a non-profit organization that is dedicated to preserving open space was something I jumped at the chance to participate in. I am extremely proud to be part of a group that has preserved thousands of acres here in our backyard.” Jim spends his free time skiing, kayaking, climbing and generally enjoying life in the mountains with his wife and three children.
