Selling prime ranches like a 17,600-acre cattle ranch near Ardmore in the beautiful Arbuckle Mountains takes a Realtor with a world of experience, expertise and a global network of potential buyers.
Listed for $22 million, Arbuckle Ranch sits on a 520-square-mile, highly prolific aquifer, which assured a potential buyer of an abundance of water for hay production, ponds and grass needed to run a superior cattle operation. To market this unique ranch the owners turned to Angie Nelson with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Nelson comes from a long line of “cattle raising,” starting with her great grandfather who ran Herefords in western Oklahoma, and continuing with her father’s Registered Hereford cattle operation in southern Oklahoma.
As a former ranch owner and developer, Nelson has spent the last 17 years helping buyers find their dream ranch or farm. She has sold more than $58 million in real estate.
Adding to her own expertise, Nelson brings the worldwide network of potential buyers through Sotheby’s International Realty with offices around the world. She has helped many buyers realize the advantages of purchasing properties north of the Red River. She points out that land prices are about half that of surrounding states. The Oklahoma terrain is similar to Colorado. The hunting is great, as is the fishing and boating on Lake Texoma and Lake Murray. And of course, there is the excitement of WinStar and Choctaw casinos.
