Because of Horses

Feb 1, 2019

Tyler Jacobs, director and real estate partner with Hall and Hall, has been selling farms and ranches since 1998. Hall and Hall is the premier source for ranchers looking to buy and sell land in the west, with over $3 billion in total sales since 2008 and more acreage brokered than any firm in the world.

Founded in 1946 by Henry Hall and his son Warren, Hall and Hall grew from modest roots with deals simply closed by a handshake to an employee-owned company whose team-based approach is customer-focused and results-oriented. Hall and Hall’s 24 brokers and agents work out of 19 regional offices spanning from Texas to Montana, assisting clients with individual needs ranging from mortgage banking to real estate appraisals to hiring an experienced ranch manager. 

Tyler is based in the College Station, Texas, branch of Hall and Hall, and ranches in nearby Montgomery, Texas. Tyler, his wife Amy and their four children show ranch horses and commercial cattle. He is the president of the Texas Land Brokers Network.

In this episode, Elise and Tyler discuss his passion for real estate, ranching, horses, and the land; his experiences with both his work and his favorite horses; as well as his insights into helping buyers fulfill their dreams. He also reflects on the unique opportunities that have come his way because of his ranching experience and heritage, and offers guidance on selecting a real estate expert, including the specific needs of horse-people and fascinating anecdotes about representing some of the finest properties in the US.
