OWN YOUR OWN PRIVATE RIVER
10 Miles of Historic and Scenic Silvies River Frontage
The Smith Brothers Ranch encompasses approximately 3,443 acres, which includes approximately 10 miles of Silvies River frontage. Where else in the west can you essentially own your own river?
The ranch begins just south of the headeaters of the Silvies River where Myrtle Creek joins the Siivies on its way through the Smith Brothers Ranch beginning with the Drinkwater dam. This represents the figurative if not the legal start of the ranch. Emerging from the dam, the river slowly meanders through the Drinkwater meadow, giving up some of its life giving nutients to sustain the meadow along the way. The Hamilton Dam then takes control, albeit temporarily, diverting portions of the Silvies both east and west. Nature assures, after the grasses of the valley have had their fill, that the remainder flows back into the river to for future benefit.
Homesteaded around the turn of the last century, the current ranch house was built in 1910 and last changed hands around 1941.. In turn, this historic operating cattle ranch, is exceptionally situated with very limited access, proximity to an incredible amount of additional public grounds, miles of water, some of the best hunting in the state of Oregon and privacy that is second to none. The multiple tax lots, old homesteads and classic ranch house setting make the Smith Brothers Ranch a marker for which other ranches strive to be compared. THE GRAZE LEASE ATTACHED TO BE DETERMINED AND NEGOTIATED AT TIME OF SALE IF SOLD SEPARATELY. Listing Brokers are also owners of Smith Brothers Ranch.
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!"
