Leader in ranch real estate

Sell with swan

Selling land in the Rocky Mountain West can be complicated, but interviewing a land broker shouldn’t be. Whether you’re just starting to explore your options, comparing brokerages, or ready to proceed with a sale – We will come to you.

Our process starts with a walk around your property and a kitchen table conversation about your goals, educating you about the process, and discussing the nuances of your property. Based on our insights from this conversation and proprietary research, we will provide a custom marketing and listing proposal with everything you’ll need to decide if we are the right brokerage for you and your property.

When signing an exclusive listing agreement with a boutique firm with our level of expertise, you will enjoy an integration of national and global-scale marketing visibility without competing with a large portfolio of listings. You will get full service from a team with a complete grasp of the business and legal aspects of what can be complicated transactions and their operational intricacies, as well as second-to-none communication with you and any relevant legal and financial advisors. Let us take care of everything for you…

“Each ranch is unique and hard to value. Mike has a deep understanding of the agricultural and recreational assets of ranch properties. This enables him to connect buyers and sellers with a common, transparent understanding of the land. This builds trust – key to a good process. He intuitively understands the hopes and concerns of sellers and buyers of expensive, complex properties. Mike was able to address my concerns about properly valuing our property due to it being subject to a conservation easement. My overall experience was simply excellent - a timely sale at a fair price to a good buyer.”


Montana Ranch

“Thank you for making selling and buying so easy and problem-free.”


Wyoming Property

“Thank you, Steve, for all your guidance and support, through all the trials and tribulations of getting our property sold!!!  It was certainly a challenge! Thanks to your help, we were successful!!”


Montana Ranch

“Mike and Tim are incredibly easy to work with and a pleasure to hang out with during long days in the fields, which there may/should be many.  They are both professionals in their approach to the process, beginning to end.  And, their knowledge of the key aspects to buying and selling properties is as good as I have experienced.  They listen to your needs, are willing to put in the miles, and don’t waste your (or theirs) time when they know firsthand that something on the Internet isn’t a fit.”

“If you want to talk about commitment, Scott Williams and Swan Land Company are an example of the definition. Scott’s attention to detail is second to none. From initial introductions to sale closing, I could not be happier with the results. Scott’s knowledge and approach to business has been a pleasure to experience. I look forward to future dealings as well as a lasting friendship. Thank You to Scott and Swan. I will be highly recommending both.”


Wyoming Retreat

“His listing, marketing, and sale of the Broken O Ranch near Augusta, MT placed him in the top echelon of land brokers in the U.S.”
