John Hayter has a life time of experience in the land and ranch industry as he was born and raised to a long line of pioneering Texas ranchers. John began his career as a 6th generation rancher in 1997 as President of Slash J Ranch Enterprises, Inc. His responsibilities included ranch and wildlife manager for Wallace Creek and Lethco Ranches combined. Wallace Creek Ranch bred and supplied Corriente sport cattle while Lethco Ranch was a more traditional cow/calf operation. He quickly made a name for himself as his expertise and skill did not go unnoticed. His reputation for breeding high quality sport cattle led to sales across a large multi-state area. Before long John began consulting other land owners regarding breeding sport cattle and wildlife management, and as a result he began his entrepreneurial ventures with a wildlife consulting business.
In 2004 as his reputation and experience grew John took on another role; that of a real estate broker specializing in ranch sales. John has extensive experience in water rights, mineral rights, wildlife management, range management, and marketing and sales of ranches ranging in size from a couple hundred acres to over 12,000 acres.

He researched, developed, built, and launched a national multiple listing service specific to land - www.landbrokermls.com. John went on to successfully sell part of www.landbrokermls.com while remaining as VP of Web Operations , a national resource for premier rural real estate. In today's market, effective internet marketing is an absolute must for all sellers. John has the background, knowledge, and experience to provide the highest exposure via web traffic, social media , and print media for all his clients.
