John Hayter - Broker CO, TX, NM

John Hayter has a lifetime of experience in the land and ranch industry as he was born and raised to a long line of pioneering Texas ranchers. John holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Wildlife Management with a minor in Equine Science and is a licensed real estate broker in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. John has 20 years of experience in ranch real estate with extensive knowledge in water rights, mineral rights, wildlife management, range management, and marketing and sales. 

John began his career managing ranches and wildlife management consulting and after many trips to the Rocky Mountains for ski vacations, he and his family decided to make the mountains their home. John moved his family to Colorado in 2006. At this time, due to his experience in conducting exhaustive land searches, he conceived the idea to combine his experience into a service for land brokers, developers, buyers, and sellers. He researched, developed, built, and launched the first national multiple listing service specific to land – www.landbrokermls.com. John went on to successfully sell part of www.landbrokermls.com and along with 2 additional partners founded Open Fences Magazine, a national luxury rural real estate publication. In addition, in 2018 John, along with his partners and other prominent land brokers, founded and launched the first national Land Broker Co-op.

Having been raised on a ranch, it was natural for John to have a deep connection to the land and nature. As a boy, he enjoyed tromping across the mountains, hunting small game and fishing with his grandfather. Later on John became a passionate hunter and fisherman. John has hunted all over the West and taken numerous big game trophies with rifle, muzzleloader and bow from Texas to Alaska.

He has numerous web design and development certifications and broad web programming experience and owns and operates his own web development and design companies and has the background, knowledge and experience to provide the highest exposure via web traffic, social media and print media for all his clients.


"John, you are a true professional. Thank you for assisting with the sale of our family farm and ensuring its preservation as a farm and hunting property"

Cheryl Staeben, Family land owner
