Mike Swan, managing broker and owner of Swan Land Company, was recently recognized in the St. Louis Magazine as the listing agent of the Broken O Ranch and its subsequent sale to billionaire Stan Kroenke. The Broken O Ranch, the largest irrigated farm and cattle ranch in the state of Montana, closed in November of 2012.
“Consistent with the St. Louis Magazine article we continue to see a strong sales trend in commodity-based real estate. Our listings that have a strong cattle and/or farm component continue to receive strong interest” states Swan. Take a minute, its an interesting read covering not only the sale and history of Montana’s Broken O Ranch, but also thought-provoking facts about the history of Montana ranches to Texas ranches and How the West Was Won (or Bought).
