Client Testimonials

“Our experience with Texas Ranch Sales was certainly excellent. Sheldon, our Broker, went above and beyond finding a buyer and working with us to sell our property north of Hondo. The property was indeed one of those ‘challenging’ pieces of land to sell, in my opinion. He kept in constant communication with us about the process and made it a very pleasurable experience. We have sold and bought land and homes before, and I feel the service provided to us was the best so far. On a scale of 1-10, Texas Ranch Sales is a 10+++. Thank you, Sheldon, for making ‘things’ happen in a positive way.”

“I have been associated with Texas Ranch Sales and Sheldon Grothaus for a number of years now. He has represented me on both sale and purchase of different ranches. I have been 110% pleased with their performance, assistance, and very professional service provided to me in all phases of the transactions. I have recommended him to my friends and associates and they, too, were treated accordingly. Texas Ranch Sales knows ranches and the marketplace. You can contact them with confidence and you will not be disappointed.”
