M arilyn H offman the one hundred million dollar realtor  ’ expertise in selling extraordinary farms, ranches and estate properties attracts a clientele that reads like a Who’s Who of business, sports, entertainment and the social register. Golfer Lee Trevino, a Saudi Prince, sports legend Deion Sanders, transportation secretary Milo Bryant, a billionaire Texas oilman, Horatio Alger Member, Carl Westcott, cosmetics queen Mary Kay, Merv Griffin, and a major sports team owner have all been her clients.

Marilyn recently made history by listing the most expensive home in Texas, a $100,000,000 property. She also sold one of the largest estates in Texas to the new owners of a major sports team. Her sale of a $9,995,000 Penthouse in Dallas was the most expensive penthouse ever sold in Dallas. Marilyn sold a $13,500,000 estate to the owners of a Scottish castle. Her most recent sale was a $20,000,000 estate that she listed, sold and closed for full price in 24 days. This 35,000 sq. ft. home was the largest and most expensive sale in the state. This estate was previously listed with another international realtor at a lower price and did not sell.

“Marilyn’s aggressive approach to the international marketing of the property resulted in a completed transaction in five months from start to finish. I’m hasten to add that the prior agencies failed completely to do any effective marketing of Brantley Manor, although I did spend a substantial upfront marketing fee with them.”

Marilyn sold one of the most famous Hill country ranches, the Double Diamond Ranch, with 2,000 acres, 20 homes and an exotic game preserve.

The Historic Horse Ranch

T

Montana v Fergus County v Lewistown

The Historic Horse Ranch is nestled in the rolling hills of central Montana about 35 miles northeast of Lewistown. The Ranch is comprised of approximately 25,323 total acres including 22,812 deeded acres plus 2,371 acres of state lease and a small 140-acre federal permit. Positioned on the northern side of the Judith Mountain Range, the Ranch is a rare opportunity to own one of the premier blockedup and contiguous grass ranches in the Big Sky State. The Ranch is ideally located in one of Central

t c ntra

Montana’s most desirable and appealing areas. Lewistown and Fergus County afford all the resources required for successful ranching and personal enjoyment of a safe and quiet lifestyle away from the maddening crowds of metropolitan America. The Horse Ranch was first put together to supply

o C der

remount horses for the U.S. Cavalry in forts throughout the vast Montana Territory in the 1860s and into the 1890s. The Ranch was purchased by Vernon F. Taylor in 1947 and held in the Taylor Family

Un

until 1963 when it was passed on to his son, James C. Taylor. These visionaries have spent the last 64 years creatively shaping and improving this significant holding. The expansive operation contains sufficient hay meadows and summer pasture to comfortably run 700 to 750 head of brood cows on a year ’round basis plus a full complement of replacement heifers and bulls. Even to the untrained eye, it is apparent that the grazing resource has been managed conservatively. The remarkable condition of this historic ranch is the result of over six decades of masterful stewardship. The deep timbered draws and grassy plateaus also provide prime habitat for the resident elk herd, trophy mule deer, antelope, wild turkey and upland game birds including sharp-tailed grouse, pheasant and sage grouse. The Horse Ranch represents an unusual opportunity to acquire a true operating ranch with enough size and carrying capacity to make some business sense even in today’s tumultuous economic climate. Prospective buyers in solid financial condition with an interest in portfolio diversification and a desire to own one of Montana’s true working outfits should seriously consider The Horse Ranch. It is rare to find a large contiguous land holding with such strong operating resources and authentic history. The Ranch is offered at $15,000,000 by one of Montana’s most respected ranching families.
