Doug Howard, Managing Partner, Flying H Ranch. Cody, Wyoming
As the managing partner of the Flying H Ranch I had tried two previous big name realtors involved in trying to sell the ranch, which had been in our family for over 60 years. I had experienced far too many showings in the past, where the potential buyers had not really been serious in one manner or another. The ranch had been on the market for approximately 8 years with no offers. When Ted Harvey came on board, I quickly grew to appreciate his straightforward, professional and hard working style. He properly vetted clients so that those viewing the ranch knew exactly what they were looking at. The buyer that eventually purchased the ranch was a party that came forward knowing that the ranch was the perfect fit for what they were looking for.
Selling a property like this was a tremendous amount of work and I was even more thankful to have Ted on board then. He handled so many details and tasks in a seamless and professional manner. More than I thought any realtor would have done so normally. I have bought and sold many properties over the years and Ted has been the best realtor I have used. I have no complaints and nothing but high praises in every aspect of the process from the beginning listing to the closing date and beyond. I would highly recommend Ted Harvey to anyone and wouldn’t hesitate to call him as my one and only choice for the future. I also have several family members who are already in contact with him on other properties, as a result of how he handled the Flying H Ranch.
John Ed Anderson. Red Canyon Ranch. Shell, Wyoming
Red Canyon Ranch had been offered for sale by various agents in the past years and after getting discouraged by unmotivated realtors we took it off the market. Several years later we met Ted Harvey when he was doing research while selling a neighbor’s property. His questions concerning how things were done was something surpassed by others I had been involved with. We were throwing around the idea of listing Red Canyon again and contacted Mr. Harvey to see if he was interested in the listing. He informed us he was starting his own company and was looking for listings. Knowing this was risky, we spent several days showing Ted the property and discussing his strategy for selling farm and ranch land. Soon after we signed the contract, Ted produced a color brochure as well as an informative web site. He used his drone to produce the awesome photography for both.
Over the next 18 months Red Canyon was shown at least once a month and Ted had communication with us almost daily. He continued to research every aspect of the ranch from grazing permits and water rights, to fossil and mineral rights. Offers began to come in with other realtors as well as Ted representing both clients. His contracts were well written to suit Wyoming ranches. As it turned out, Ted brought the Buyer and worked with both sides, fitting all the pieces together and closing our deal in a timely manner. Yellowstone Land Consultants showed the property with his fleet of UTV, 4x4 pickup and even horseback.
We would highly recommend Ted Harvey with Yellowstone Land Consultants for any of your Real Estate needs.

D. McGinnity | Owner T Cross Ranch. Dubois, Wyoming
When the owners of T Cross Ranch LLC embarked on the process of selling our beloved ranch, we believed that Ted Harvey’s extensive experience in buying and selling all sorts of ranch properties in the West was a good fit for our situation. This belief was strengthened greatly by Ted’s in-depth knowledge of dude ranches, both as an operator and a broker. Our belief and expectations were borne out more fully than we ever imagined.
After recently closing on a very successful sale of T Cross, we can definitely say that we made the right decision. Throughout the entire sales process, Ted not only proved to be that knowledgeable resource we thought we were hiring, but also to be incredibly diligent, persistent, patient, and accessible. He was a wonderful, candid, and sensitive advisor to us and earned a high degree of credibility among our group of owners, some of whom had family ties of over 50 years with the ranch.
We firmly believe that Ted went well beyond the normal listing broker responsibilities on our behalf and was instrumental in bringing the sales process to such a successful close. We are grateful to Ted and Live Water for all that they did for us and would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a ranch property!
Pete Simpson. Park County, Wyoming
“I want to testify to the professional guidance given me by ranch broker, Ted Harvey, during a recent negotiations for the sale of a piece of ranch property I owned on the South Fork of the Shoshone River in northwestern Wyoming. I’ve known real estate brokers for many years, some of them friends, some of them business associates. But, I never knew a more honest, persistent, hard working man nor a man of greater integrity in the business than Ted Harvey. He was the luckiest break our family ever had. Let me explain.
I had been interested in selling a 40 acre tract on Ishawooa Creek for eight years since 2005. I negotiated on my own at first - to no avail and then through an old broker friend - again to no avail. I had begun to despair as had my wife. She is seventy five and I am in my mid-eighties. Our end-of-life plans for ourselves and for our children rested on this sale. When I was about to give up hope along came Ted Harvey. I was struck by his straight forward candor and I trusted him from the moment I saw him.
He went to work with diligence and I knew he was representing my interests vigorously and aggressively which proved particularly true when company policy initiated a limit of one million dollars on all property sales. My piece did not make that cut. But, Ted Harvey stood by me and convinced the company that he and the company should continue the effort because, as he put it, “I promised I would help him sell it!” That candor persuaded the powers that be and literally saved our retirement years as well as alleviating our children’s anxieties and worries.
We literally owe Ted Harvey our later lives and I cannot recommend him more highly than to say, if anyone wants to be represented fairly, treated with respect, worked with honorably and advocated for with vigor and expertise then there are no others I know now nor ever have known who can do that better. He’s a winner and he’ll do any of your customers proud!”
Kenny Long, Owner of Crossed Sabres Ranch. Cody, Wyoming
“Our dream to own a Dude Ranch could not have been fulfilled without your efforts. A real estate agent is not versed in the complexity of purchasing a ranch, much less a dude ranch. Your expertise in ranch real estate was invaluable as we went through due diligence, developed the business plan and applied for a twenty-year National Forest Service lease. We were appreciative during, but three years later, we look back and truly understand how fortunate we were to have you as our advisor. We believe your guidance ensured our dream became our reality. We remain grateful for your time, patience and attention. Be assured the light will always be on at our ranch for you and your family.”
