John Hayter, Broker - Broker Assoc.
John Hayter has a lifetime of experience in the land and ranch industry as he was born and raised to a long line of pioneering Texas ranchers. John began his career as a 6th generation rancher in 1997 as president of Slash J Ranch Enterprises, Inc. His responsibilities included ranch and wildlife manager for Wallace Creek and Lethco Ranches combined. Wallace Creek Ranch bred and supplied Corriente sport cattle; Lethco Ranch was a more traditional cow/calf operation. He quickly made a name for himself as his expertise and skill did not go unnoticed. His reputation for breeding high-quality sport cattle led to sales across a multi-state area. Soon, John began consulting other landowners regarding breeding sport cattle and wildlife management and then started entrepreneurial ventures with a wildlife consulting business.
In 2004 as his reputation and experience grew, John took on another role; that of a real estate broker specializing in ranch sales. John has extensive experience in water rights, mineral rights, wildlife management, range management, and marketing and sales of ranches ranging in size from a couple hundred acres to over 12,000 acres.
After many trips to the Rocky Mountains for ski vacations, he and his family decided to make the mountains their home. John moved his family to Colorado in 2006. At this time, due to his experience in conducting exhaustive land searches, he conceived the idea to combine his experience into a service for land brokers, developers, buyers, and sellers. He researched, developed, built, and launched a national multiple listing service specific to land – www.landbrokermls.com. John went on to successfully sell part of www.landbrokermls.com. In today’s market, effective Internet marketing is an absolute must for all sellers. John has the background, knowledge and experience to provide the highest exposure via web traffic, social media and print media for all his clients.
Having been raised on a ranch, it was natural for John to have a deep connection to the land and nature. As a boy, he enjoyed tromping across the mountains, hunting small game and fishing with his grandfather. Later on John became a passionate hunter and fisherman. John has hunted all over the West and taken numerous big game trophies with rifle, muzzleloader and bow from Texas to Alaska.
