ELR: Julie, you have some blockbuster properties. Highlight a couple of them for our readers.
JMS: The Ferris Creek Hunting Retreat has 1276 acres with a great mix of juniper, timber pockets, a creek, and springs with a resident herd of big game to hunt.
The Hill Ranch offers 3802 acres of seclusion at the confluence of the North and Middle Fork Rivers which has excellent bass and steelhead fishing.
The 234-acre Herold Ranch features an energy efficient home, prolific springs, a variety of trees, plus 2 acres of blueberries with a great growing season.
ELR: The market in your corner of the Northwest is home to more critters than people. Tell us about the area. It offers the ultimate in “social distancing.”
JMS: Yes, this is a popular destination for that remote retreat that provides COVID 19 relief! There are thousands of acres of public lands to explore and abundant outdoor recreation. We live life at a much slower pace here. There’s plenty of peace and quiet from rimrocks to river, sage brush to timber, mountain streams to pine forests. With a backdrop of scenic contrasts and geological formations, there is spectacular beauty in every direction. This is still an undiscovered terrain, rich in history.
ELR: Where all are your buyers coming from?
JMS: Georgia, Florida, Montana, California, Washington, and other parts of Oregon.
ELR: You have been in rural land sales since 1994, and in 2015, became a Mossy Oak Properties franchise office and broker. Tell me about that relationship
JMS: The brand recognition since joining MOP has helped to increase exposure and awareness in our Eastern Oregon inventory. It’s been great to pair our local expertise and service with a national marketing platform and be a part of this support system with a growing network of brokers.
ELR: What’s your website and contact information should folks want to reach you?
