Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:

We commend the entire staff at West and Swope Ranches.  They represented us for the sale of our ranch in South Texas.  Several of their agents visited the property with us a provided very good suggestions on improvements to help in marketing. We were especially pleased with the efforts and professionalism of Jaxon Riebesehl.  Jaxon helped us navigate through some unexpected challenges involving access and even some title problems.  All issues were resolved successfully, and the sale was completed.  Jaxon was great to work with and stayed on top of things the whole way.  We highly recommend Jaxon and the others at the West and Swope team.


Our decision to choose West and Swope Ranches as our listing real estate company was based on their knowledge of ranching families, knowledge of the uniqueness of selling farms and ranches, and the exclusive focus your company makes on only selling farm and ranch land. From day one, we appreciated your aggressive and professional marketing efforts and how you kept us informed as we went through the selling process. Louie Swope, Mitch West, Bill West and the whole staff are exceptional individuals who in our case brought a seller and buyer together, which ultimately led to a happy, win-win conclusion for everyone.

Jaxon represented our family as a real estate agent for two years in the listing and sale of a 20 acre parcel of land in Dimmit County, Texas that our family had owned for nearly 100 years. It was a very difficult situation because an adjoining land owner had claimed our land as his own and fenced it in. We finally sold the land for a fair price but we would not have been successful without Jaxon. Jaxon put us in touch with a Landman who secured and provided the deed to our land at no cost.  Jaxon provided valuable intelligence about other land in the area, what it was worth and why it was worth that amount. Jaxon referred us to an attorney who did a fantastic job for us.  Jaxon was always available to answer any questions that we had, and if he did not know the answer, he knew who did.  He is an excellent communicator.I can recommend Jaxon without hesitation or reservation. 

I found Kirk Moody by pure chance when I called him after I passed a for sale sign he had just outside Castroville. The intent of my call that day was simply to get a feel of market prices since I was considering putting our ranch on the market. After our first phone call and meeting, I decided to hire Kirk and West and Swope Ranches to handle the sale of our ranch. From the start, Kirk was very diligent, informative, positive, and professional in all aspects of the process. He consistently communicated with me during the entire process. His infectious enthusiasm was very much needed during the slow times we experienced during the heat of summer. Louie Swope did a fantastic job for us as well. His experience and calm demeanor were exactly what I needed as well during this important time. And on top of all that, these two young men are simply great people. The support staff at West and Swope were fantastic as well. Taylor and Christina were so helpful and knowledgeable, especially the information and creativity that they brought to the table. The video and photographs that the West and Swope team created to market the ranch were exceptional. My family and I could not be any happier with this entire experience and cannot wait to work with them in the near future. Thank you West and Swope.

"We had 60 acres with 1300 feet of waterfront on Lake Placid near Seguin for sale. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our realtors, West and Swope. Mitch West, Louie Swope, and Kirk Moody and their team are skilled, honest, and personable. We love the property and didn’t want to see it developed into a subdivision in deference to homeowners who live there and have multiple watercraft on the lake. Although developers would have paid more, West and Swope found a buyer who would love and preserve the land like we do. We are grateful for their patience, understanding and expertise. If you want to sell or buy land, you won’t find a better firm than West and Swope Ranches." 

“It was a pleasure working with Mitch West and Louie Swope on the sale of my south texas cattle and hunting ranch. They provided qaulified buyers from the first day of listing and followed through with each prospect until contract closed. For ranches of this size they were able to come with a buyer in a relatively short time. Would work with them again and recommend them to any buyer or seller.”

“My one request of Mitch and Louie as we closed on the sale of my Dad’s ranch in Bandera was not to lost touch with them! We became absentee owners of the property and Mitch and Louie were so conscientious about keeping us informed, updated, and advised on showings and any activity concerning the property. They became part of our family! The thoughtfulness and consideration shown by them, and by Christina in the office, was not only greatly appreciated but depended upon to answer questions and concerns that came up from time to time. It was a true pleasure to work with people os such rich character and values. “

Kirk Moody contacted me by telephone and correspondence to inquire as to whether I was interested in selling my rural property, which I was. Because of his sincere, respectful, professional demeanor in those initial encounters, which was borne out when we met for a visit at the property, I listed it with West-Swope. Kirk immediately undertook to gather information, engage a photographer, prepare a brochure, suggest ways to improve the property’s appearance, and even helped with some tasks to accomplish that. He was very prompt at getting everything ready for immediate posting of the listing. Kirk’s suggestions and observations were practical and helpful. A buyer quite soon came forward, and Kirk was unfailingly attentive to the buyer and me, accomplishing sale and closing without delay or difficulty. This was accomplished much faster and easier than I had expected, and I am grateful for his help and considerate attention.

Our experience with Michael McNamara at West & Swope Ranches could not have gone any smoother! Before working with them, our property had been on the market for over a year with little to no interest. We listed with Michael, netted a full price offer, and sold before the listing even hit the market! Michael was professional, precise and very helpful, answering any and all questions we had. The whole experience was accomplished so much quicker than we had expected and Michael made everything so easy for us. We are so grateful and highly recommend using West & Swope for all your ranch property buying and selling needs!

West and Swope Ranches represented the sellers on a ranch we purchased for our registered cattle operation. Louie Swope was our primary point of contact during the complex transaction. We found Louie to be very professional, helpful and prompt during our interaction. Louie played a key role in achieving the successful completion of the transaction to the benefit of both seller and buyer.
