Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
“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.”
- Larry Carroll Medio Creek Ranch
“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.

The whole team at West & Swope Ranches are an amazing group to have working for you ... thats exactly what they do ... work hard for you. I ended up working with Kirk Moody, whom I was told was new to the team. I would not have figured that. I can be a picky, time consuming customer and I put that good man, Kirk to task. He was incredibly patient, responsive and early on got a good idea of my vision. It took months for me to finally find the property I ended up with. I couldn't be more pleased with my outcome. Thanks again y'all for helping me find a little piece of heaven here in Texas.

I was very pleased with my realtor Mason Trull of West and Swopes Ranches. He immediately went to work and believe me, that was not case with prior realtors. Mason was always available to answer any questions. The photographer he brought was excellent that did drone flyover. The video greatly contributed to sale of my ranch. I would hire West and Swope Ranches again.

Mitch West was always available, responsive, and kept us updated on activity regarding the sale. I would recommend Mitch to anyone looking for ranch property in the Texas Hill Country

Louie Swope is one of the finest real estate professionals around. My brother recommended Louie Swope to me, saying he uses a drone to photograph the property — a drone. As cutting edge as that is, Louie struck me as a seasoned pro, advising me about the value of roadside frontage, easements, mineral rights and many other crucial details. When I contracted him to do the job for me, he hit the ground running, helping me set a reasonable price and then drumming up potential buyers. Even when I threw him a curve by setting aside surface rights to a portion of the land for one buyer, he found a buyer for the rest of the property, worked out complex mineral rights and easement agreements, and arranged a precise survey to lock it all down. From contract to closing, this man earned every dime of his commission!!

Loyalty, honor, integrity, dedication. These words are powerful. These words are valued. These words are often used, by me, to describe the extraordinary men I am honored to write about in these Broker Spotlights. This month’s spotlight is no exception. George M. “Mitch’ West, of Phyllis Browning Ranch in San Antonio, is a sixth generation Texan, a dedicated family man and a very successful broker. He has traveled the world, worked for some of the most famous ranches in the United States, Canada, Central and South America and spent 43 years in love with the same woman. All of those words definitely apply. But, if I had to pick one word to describe Mitch West, it would be humble. The man truly has no idea just how extraordinary he is.
