Where do you live?

I live here in San Antonio, Texas. 

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in San Antonio.

What are the three most important things to look for when looking for an agent to represent you?

I think it’s important to have someone who is knowledgeable about the market, hardworking and honest. 

What is the most profound lesson you have learned from spending time on ranches?

Take care of the land and it will take care of you.

If you could give in one sentence, a piece of advice about how to live life, what would that be?

Work hard, celebrate the wins and laugh a lot along the way.

Describe your perfect work day.

Showing a few nice ranches in the morning, enjoying good BBQ in a small town for lunch and showing ranches in the evening… But really every day is a perfect workday.

What is your most memorable deal to date?

I want to say my most memorable deal to date would be my first listing, but I did have the opportunity to sell my family’s ranch in Medina County and that was special to me to see the new owners get to enjoy it as much as we did over the years. 

When looking for a brokerage, what drew you to West & Swope Ranches?

I think the camaraderie, leadership and energy that both Louie and Mitch bring is unmatched. With that said, the group is first class. 

What is your greatest accomplishment to date? 

My first listing, I think all areas of real estate can be challenging for younger agents getting started so to climb that milestone was a win in my book… also when I was five, I won the San Antonio Rodeo Mutton Bustin’ Championship and that was pretty cool too.

When you aren’t working your business, where can you be found?

If I’m not out showing a place or in the office you can find me hunting, fishing or at the lake with my friends. There’s also a good chance you can find me in a bunker somewhere on a golf course.

Who is someone who has had a profound impact in your life or in your business?

I would say my dad and my grandfather. Both of their success from their hard work had a huge impact on me from a young age and I think they both molded me into who I am today. 

What, or where, would be your dream ranch? 

I think a dream ranch would consist of about 4,000 or more acres somewhere in Frio County, a big lake in front of the house and some great native deer… and of course, a pivot over a sunflower field, because who doesn’t love a good paloma shoot.
