M arilyn H offman MARILYN HOFFMAN’S 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, the CEO of the largest corporation in the country, a Saudi Prince, sports legend Deion Sanders, transportation secretary Milo Bryant, a billionaire Texas oilman, cosmetics queen Mary Kay, Merv Griffin, Indy winner, Andy Granatelli, and a major sports team owner have all been her clients. Marilyn recently made history by listing one of the most expensive ranches in Texas, a $100,000,000 property. She also sold one of the largest estates in Texas to the new owners of the Texas Rangers and sold the most famous Texas oilman a $9,995,000 Dallas home. Marilyn sold a $13,500,000 cutting horse ranch to the owners of a Scottish castle after she met them at Keeneland where they were high bidders at the auctions. Her most famous 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 has also sold the largest/most expensive homes in multiple states, including the largest home in Oklahoma, Kentucky, ALABAMA, the Georgia home of Dale Murphy, the Hall of Fame Baseball Player, and the Double Diamond Ranch, a Texas Hill Country ranch with 2,000 acres and 19 homes.

Marilyn attended the high-profile gala at the Grosvenor House in London in December, where the world’s top agents and brokers receive their awards. Marilyn is also a major donor to many charities, donating many Arabian horses for the auctions. Her donations at the Cattle Barons Ball are over $200,000, benefiting the American Cancer Society. Marilyn is also the only broker in the world to have exhibits at the world’s top equestrian events, such as the Rolex Three Day Event, the Egyptian Event, the Salon de Cheval in Paris, the Washington International Horse Show, the National Horse Show, the Hampton Classic, Newport Classic and Boston Classic and the Winter Equestrian Festival, NCHA World Championship Futurity and the Day Event.

Kristy Bryant An Agent with a Passion

What makes a good agent? Knowledge, hard work, loyalty, passion are just a few of the attributes that a ranch and landowner would like to see their realtor possess. Rightly so, landowners should expect a high level of professionalism when deciding to buy or sell land. But is that all they should expect? Meet Kristy Bryant, an agent with a passion for impressing her clients. As a very young girl, Kristy woke up every summer morning at 5:00 A.M., hopped in the pickup truck with her father and headed off to the construction site. Kristy went begrudgingly at first, then began to love working with her father, as she would carry lumber one-by-one to the framing crew for 20 cents each. Kristy quickly learned to value of hard work and earning a dollar. With that true value of money and grit instilled within a young girl’s mind and heart, today Kristy carries that drive and passion for hard work. She is not just an agent that will stand by and sit idle. “NO” is not an option for this passionate agent. Kristy is always on the move in search of the perfect ranch for her clients. Combining flying and driving of the property allows all parties to experience a complete understanding of the qualities of a property. Having been involved with ranches from childhood and being a land and ranch owner, Kristy understands how important it is to be a good land steward for future generations to come. She believes that creating a deeply rooted connection to the history of the land is something everyone should experience in their lifetime. With one of the strongest real estate brands in the world, Kristy maximizes opportunities by leveraging unparalleled marketing resources and a powerful brand network in Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. The firm’s global network is extraordinary and the best in the business. Her marketing expertise and brand affiliation makes her the ideal professional representative when buying or selling properties. Kristy believes that her clients deserve a remarkably knowledgeable hard working agent with exceptional branding capabilities, exquisite representation coupled with a great experience. Call today and let Kristy help you fulfill your land needs!

Caiman Ranch 1,000 to 2,002 Acres

South Texas v La Salle County v Encinal

O

Originally part of the 250,000-acre Callaghan Ranch, the Caiman Ranch was in the same family from 1947 up until 2008. About 140 miles south of San Antonio, 55 miles northeast of Laredo and 20 miles east of Encinal, this property is long known as the “Promised Land” for bruiser, whitetail bucks. Caiman Ranch carries the reputation as one of the best whitetail deer ranches in Texas. Deer taken from the ranch have consistently won local contests, including Los Cazadores, the Muy Grande and the Cola Blanca. This sportsman’s paradise also features lots of turkey, wild hogs, quail and dove. The ranch is fenced and cross-fenced into four pastures and features 8-foot net wire game-proof fencing along the eastern boundary and barbed wire fencing along the remaining boundaries. All of the major South Texas brush species are represented in abundance, including guajillo, guayacan, granjeno, blackbrush, mesquite trees and Huisache trees, which provide food for wildlife, in addition to the excellent brush. Improvements include a 4,200-square-foot, Spanish-style hacienda with six bedrooms, five baths, concrete slab, stucco exterior, Saltillo tile floors, mostly 9-foot ceilings, deep porches and a large walled courtyard with a traditional outdoor fountain. Other buildings include a 1,700-square-foot foreman’s house with three bedrooms and two baths, a 2,665-square-foot barn, a 1,640-square-foot shed and a 600-square-foot workshop. The Caiman Ranch also features plentiful water and excellent level to gently rolling topography. Ranging in elevation from 393 feet at the main entrance to about 322-feet in the Los Olmos Creekbed, the ranch features soils with clay or loam surface layers, which are the key to the excellent, diverse vegetation. A 4,280-foot-deep well out of the Carrizo Aquifer supplies water to the headquarters, one of two stock tanks on the ranch and various water troughs. Wet-weather Olmos Creek flows through the western section of the ranch, and holds pockets of water for extended periods of time. This is the perfect opportunity for an outdoorsman who desires to own one of the best whitetail deer herds in the state. No production and no oil drilling activity on the ranch. Property ID: 46262

javelin, wild hogs, buffalo, trophy bass and a variety of small game. The ranch is 23 miles from Encinal and 24 miles from Freer. The front entrances touch Highway 44. The owners have invested considerable resources and time into the Dipper Ranch with the goal of building a world-class whitetail hunting experience. While the ranch is blessed with excellent native brush, the owners launched an intensive supplemental feeding and range improvement program. Over the years, they have installed 32 protein feeder stations that provide in excess of 120 tones of protein annually. The wild deer population is approximately one deer per every 14 acres. Even though Dipper Ranch possesses incredible native whitetail genetics, an intensive pasture management program has been designed and implemented. To support their program, the owners constructed a deer breeding facility in 2007 to further enhance the development and quality of their whitetail population. The trophy breeding herd consists of ten 200+ Boone and Crockett-class whitetail bucks and 150 does of superior genetic quality. The Dipper Ranch has abundant water with 13 lakes and ponds, stocked with fish, as well as one water well. There are 20,000+ square feet of new facilities, which include a main house, guest quarters, ranch foreman’s house and a ranch facilities manager’s house. In addition, a 10,000-square-foot operations hub includes a mechanics shop, welding and fabrications facility plus a wood working shop. Last, there is a 11,250-square-foot equipment storage facility that includes a ranch office with a game processing and storage room. Owner will convey of all owner’s minerals which is approximately a 1/8 plus 50% royalty on 640 acres. No production and no oil drilling activity on the ranch. Property ID: 46261

The Rocking H Ranch is the finest ranch on the market in the most sought after location in Austin County. Charles Fordtran, a surveyor in the Earnst Grant of Stephen F.

A carriage house completes this awesome picture. The grounds and gardens are magnificent and accented by a swimming pool and porches for those special mornings.  Spring fed pond, wet weather creek and an abundance of wildlife.
