John Hayter

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 holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Wildlife Management with a minor in Equine Science and is a licensed real estate broker in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.

John began his career managing ranches and  wildlife management consulting and 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 – John went on to successfully sell part of and along with 2 additional partners founded Open Fences Magazine, a national luxury rural real estate publication. In addition, this past year John, along with his partners and other prominent land brokers, founded and launched the first national Land Broker Co-op.

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.

He has numerous web design and development certifications and broad web programming experience and owns and operates his own web development and design companies.
