  •    Many of the Fay Ranches Agents have worked with Kevin and Richard (KR Ventures) for several years on ranches. We have found their information to be accurate, timely, and easily understandable. Their product is one more tool that we have used to thoroughly represent our clients and ensure that an often-overlooked portion of property value has been accurately assessed. The information they provide to our buyers helps ensure that they do not overpay for a property and helps our sellers get their full value for their assets. Kevin and Richard do an excellent job of ensuring that the agents and the clients understand the mineral ownership and resource potential of large ranch properties allowing the clients to make informed decisions.

  •    It had been a dream of mine to purchase land in Wyoming, but when that dream became a real possibility, I had a lot of questions about my potential purchase. Being from out of state I had no idea where to even begin. KR Ventures was recommended to me by my realtor and Kevin and Richard were invaluable with me getting the information I needed to feel comfortable with purchasing my property. The amount of time and effort that went into reviewing the land deeds and calculating mineral rights was very appreciated and money well spent!
