    Gwen Wagner

    - Broker/Co-Owner

    My brother and I were born to multi-generational farmers and ranchers who relocated to Nebraska and South Dakota in the late 1800’s. My Mother was a teacher and my Dad was an “old-time cowboy”. We fished in the Missouri River, stock ponds, and creeks. We hunted pheasants, ducks, geese, deer and coyotes. We were organic before we knew it was “cool”; raising our own chickens and vegetables, milking our cows and making our own butter, cottage cheese and ice cream! We worked hard, played hard, and grew up with a love of family and friends and a sense of community.

    My great-uncles homesteaded north of Winnett, MT in the 1920’s and I loved Montana from the first time I saw it. When I was 5 I said “I’m going to live in the mountains someday”. I’ve now been here almost 50 years and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon.
    There are sounds, smells, sights, experiences and people that can only be found in a ranching community and each ranch has its own personality. Land holdings are just like us: some large, some small, some open, some closed, tall mountains or peaceful meadows and valleys, but there is one thing they all have in common – they all have a legacy and a story to tell.

    If you are selling your ranch, you have been blessed with a gift and an opportunity for a time. It will now pass to the next caregiver. If you are buying a ranch, you are also blessed with the gift of being able to embrace a lifestyle and the land with which you are entrusted. Dad always told us to leave a place better than we found it but don’t try to make it like the place you left. I hope that is what you experience….whether in ranching or your life. I look forward to meeting you and discussing how I can help you create your legacy.
