"To love what you do for a living is to know real happiness!!
Having spent over 30 years in the equestrian industry, and over 10 in residential landscaping. Landscaping along with training horses and people, showing, breeding, raising, and caring for young horses has provided extensive insight into how important having just the right property can be to realize your particular goals. Now I have the opportunity as a Realtor to help find and market properties for anyone looking to move to greener pastures or start a new chapter. I couldn't be more excited!" - Rob Moyar
Being a 4th generation horseman and growing up in a ranching family, I have had opportunities to experience and work on different ranches in Texas for the purpose of hunting, raising cattle and training horses. I have lived and experienced the reasons why some properties are more or less suited for different purposes. Nothing makes me happier than using my experience to help people find their perfect property. My wife and I share a passion for horsemanship as it applies to any discipline and I have been fortunate to have started hundreds of colts and made many friends all over the horse world including but not limited to polo, trail/pleasure, hunter/jumper, working equitation, ranch horses and rodeo. In my free time I enjoy rodeoing and bringing young horses up to be ranch and rope horses.
My wife and I live in Montgomery TX where we raise cattle, are active in the horse community and are raising our 2 children in a rural lifestyle that our land supports. Eating food out of our garden, always having farm fresh eggs and watching our animals and children thrive on the land, I wake up every morning grateful. Working with and learning from a knowledgeable team of like minded people is a dream come true. I truly believe the lifestyle creates values and a work ethic that this team shares. Land has always been important to me and I look forward to helping others find what they need from a property.
