Caleb is a fifth-generation farmer and rancher from Joseph, OR where he’s still involved with the family operation today. He grew up raising cattle on the Zumwalt Prairie along with wheat, barley, timothy, orchard grass and alfalfa hay crops in the Wallowa Valley. The area is excellent for deer and elk hunting which are among Caleb’s favorite hobbies.
Caleb attended the University of Idaho where he obtained his bachelors of science degree in Rangeland Ecology and Management with a minor in Animal Science Production. During college, he worked at the school dairy, forest products lab and even as a rangeland botanist for the University of Idaho Sage Grouse Field Crew. At the University of Idaho, he met his wife Katie and they now have one daughter.
After college, the entrepreneur in Caleb came to life and he started looking for business opportunities that would allow him and his family to stay in Wallowa County. He started a consulting and management business, Howard Resource Management, which assisted landowners to find ways to help them add revenue streams from their properties. He negotiated grazing and farming leases with tenants, hunting leases, researched potential revenue from water conservation, hydropower, and carbon credit programs. He’s also designed and managed restoration projects. He’s often described as a “true jack of all trades”. He also started a cattle marketing business that marketed nearly 1,000 head of calves in its first year.
Caleb believes that being a good real estate broker means being honest, patient, knowledgeable and a good problem solver. With his diverse background in agriculture, wildlife, and land management, his skills make him an excellent asset to have on your team.
Dear Robert, I think you are one of the nicest people on the planet, and for sure the best realtor. Thank you for all your hard work, great advice, patience, and for sticking in there with me. You really went "above and beyond". The world is a better place with people like you in it and I feel really lucky to have crossed paths with you"

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
