Opening the door for ranch ownership

At Ranch Investor, we offer individuals and retirement plans the opportunity to be a passive investor in great western ranches.

We created the Direct Participation Program for syndicating within a LLC.

Filed, registered, and legally organized with the support of a Partnership Agreement, Operating Agreement, and Private Placement Memorandum.

By offering ranches to Limited Partners, we are able to dramatically reduce the capital, time, and resources needed to enjoy the benefits of owning a vast western ranch.

I’ve collaborated with Colter on several projects in four years since I founded H Open A Consulting. He’s an invaluable resource to me when helping my clients level up their business models through enterprise analysis. He has a way of finding the opportunity where others might only see the obstacles.

I have worked with Colter on several financially-complex accounts and have been very pleased with the solutions he brought. The outcomes he continues to create are no small feat. Farm and ranch clients are extremely difficult and I continue to be impressed with his success.
