Exceptional Dedication

We are grateful for Steve Ruffner's exceptional dedication in handling the marketing and sale of our ranch. His efforts were evident in the outstanding quality of the Capitol Ranch website and custom property brochures, which played a crucial role in the sale. We sincerely appreciate the cash sales price he facilitated. Additionally, the framed photos of our ranch that Steve presented as a closing gift are beautiful and serve as cherished reminders of an unforgettable chapter in our lives, filled with irreplaceable memories. His commitment to his clients is unparalleled, as clearly demonstrated by his promise to work tirelessly on our behalf—a promise he fulfilled beyond our expectations. Thank you Steve for your time, effort, and dedication to selling our property. We are confident that your future clients will benefit greatly from your commitment as a dedicated ranch sales agent. Many thanks!

Capitol Ranch is the Pinnacle

Capitol Ranch is the pinnacle for me. In my lifetime I've been a part of seven or eight different real estate transactions with a variety of realtors. No one has impressed me more than Cody & Tracy. They work hard and they are aggressive in their approach to serving their clients needs, and at the sametime are so laid back and friendly on an interpersonal level. Professional in their dealings, and yet so friendly in their demeanor. I asked them tons of questions, and they always replied promptly with the answer. You'll love doing business with them.

Truly Cares

We couldn’t have been more blessed to be paired with Capitol Ranch agent Whitley Whitewood. She knew this was a delicate situation for my family and she worked her magic. I felt like I was saying goodbye to a good friend on closing day, but Whitley asked if she could keep in contact with us. She truly cares!

Extensive Knowledge

I, William Latham, owner of LandNTexas, had the pleasure of working with Zach Murski from Capitol Ranch on a deal in Duval County. Zach brought buyers to the table for one of our ranches and I was super impressed with his extensive knowledge of the business. He was also dedicated to helping close the deal from start to finish. I look forward to our next deal together. May the Lord continue to bless Zach's business and his family.

Excellent Guidance

J.D. McKay of Capitol Ranch Real Estate did an outstanding job selling our ranch home and acreage in Fayette County, Texas. We bought this as raw land back in 1999 and pretty much continuously improved it. When the time came to sell we did a lot of research to find the right real estate firm to represent us and what we had accomplished over our 21 year stay. Mr. McKay put together a great brochure and pictures followed by 4 showings in the first three days with an immediate and acceptable offer. Communication was excellent and he returned calls the same day. He provided excellent guidance throughout the selling process. I am very happy with the results and services that they provided and would highly recommend them.

- Ed Collins, Fayette County

Without Loss of Enthusiasm

I want to thank Capitol Ranch and especially Colton Harbert on our recent land purchase. You have a special, hard to find asset in this young man. He put in the long days and drove the extra miles to show me everything that I sent him; if I wanted to see it... he was ready to go! That meant overnight stays in not the best of motels to cover the areas too far to return home each night. That is a commitment in helping the client and closing a deal! I have purchased many properties over the years. You have to put in the time; there are not any shortcuts to finding that perfect property. Our property popped up on the radar late on one such planned outing at the last minute and had Colton not wanted to pull an overnight so we could see it the next day we would have been too late. “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm”

Slam Dunk

Capitol Ranch Real Estate did an outstanding job selling some acreage for me in Brenham, Texas (Washington County). I previously had the acreage listed with another agency for several years with no good results before I listed with Capitol Ranch. Mr. Maxwell put together a great brochure and pictures, along with many showings, negotiations, and communication to bring me a good, fair deal. I am very happy with the results and services that they provided and would highly recommend them.

Reliable and Honest

Cody Maxwell of Capitol Ranch is a top notch land broker! I have worked with him on several real estate transactions and he has always gone the extra mile to make sure everything went smooth from start to finish. Cody is an excellent communicator and knows his industry well. He promptly returns calls and emails and I appreciate that with my busy schedule. Cody is reliable and honest. I will use Cody Maxwell and Capitol Ranch Real Estate in the future. Thanks Cody for all that you do, you are the best.

Marketing and Presentation Exceptional

On behalf of all of the owners, I wanted to again thank Capitol Ranch Real Estate for selling our ranch. Our family has owned the ranch since 1881. As you can imagine, we had some reservations when we put it on the market at the peak of the corona virus epidemic. Our smaller tract had been previously listed for 10 months with a "top farm and ranch agent" without a hint of an offer. One of the big city farm and ranch brokers we interviewed told us it would probably take 12 months to market our properties. Within 2 weeks of our listing going up, Capitol Ranch had our big tract under contract for the full asking price and the smaller tract under contract to an all cash buyer. Both sales closed without a hitch. Their marketing efforts were first class and the video presentation of our properties was exceptional. They kept us fully informed at every step and stayed involved after the contracts were signed to work with the buyers to facilitate the closings. Without reservation, I would recommend Capitol Ranch Real Estate to anyone wanting to buy or sell a farm or ranch property.

- Joe D. Mitchell, Dallas, TX

Buyer Representation

My wife and I had looked on our own for over a year to find our dream property before we had the opportunity to work with Capitol Ranch and Colton Harbert. He won our business with his professionalism, follow up and attention to detail. Colton took the time to listen to what we wanted and then worked tirelessly to help us find that dream property we were looking for! His guidance and assistance along the process was first rate and his knowledge of the area was a huge asset. We enthusiastically recommend Colton as your real estate agent and trusted partner whether you are looking to buy or sell property.

- Cliff and Lisa Dorsey, Bastrop County

Capable Hands

I put my ranches in the capable hands of Capitol Ranch Real Estate and JD McKay. I have not been disappointed. First, they listen to your goals and your property's strong features. Then they really know the market and can steer you in pricing and negotiations. We have had two successful transactions this year!

- Margot Heard, Waller County

Showcased Our Property

We listed our farm home and acreage with Colton Harbert and Capitol Ranch Real Estate who walked us through every step of the process. He was always available, and communicated with us throughout. The listing included assembling high-quality photos and video footage, which showcased our property very nicely. Ultimately, with prime marketing and in-depth showings, we had two great offers above asking price in less than a week! Colton got to know our family and our needs, did a great job, and we hope to work with him again in the future. We are so glad we chose Colton and Capitol Ranch!

- William and Laura Culp, Temple, TX

Great Advice and Advocated on Our Behalf

We are so happy that we chose Capitol Ranch Real Estate and Colton Harbert to represent us when we sold our farm in Paige. Colton went above and beyond in so many ways, from bringing a UTV to take prospective Buyers around the property and to fixing leaky plumbing! In addition to those extra helpful things, Colton provided us with great advice and advocated on our behalf with prospective Buyers. In a really tough market, Colton sold our property quickly and for a solid amount. We will happily recommend him to others looking for representation - in fact, we already have!

- Kristie Wehe, Mockingbird Farm Paige, TX

Sold in 30 Days

We listed and sold our 96 acres in 30 days with Capitol Ranch Real Estate. Our listing began during the Texas Freeze and ended with eight showings over two weekends and two strong offers. They showed a level of passion, commitment, hard work, and detail oriented focus combined with her knowledge of a ranching operation and ranch real estate brought us to the finish line. Thank you for a quick and smooth transaction!

- John & Monica Isgren Thicket, TX


I never would have imagined that we would run into land mines right before the finish line, but Robert Bong went above and beyond, working nights, weekends, and whatever else was required to successfully close our land deal. That kind of persistence means everything to us. You have earned your spot as our agent from here on. Thank you!

- Kris and Paula Barber, Plano, TX

Full Price Offer In One Week

I listed my 600 acres in Washington County with Capitol Ranch after having it listed before, with no results. They had a FULL PRICE offer in a week, and we closed within 45 days, on a large multimillion dollar deal! Their service was terrific, and they were very competent, friendly, and above all effective! List with them over anyone else when selling large land and ranches!

- Nick Goodrich, Brenham, TX

Buyer and Seller Representation

Cody Maxwell and I met back in 2000 when I was searching for a ranch to purchase in Hamilton County. Since then he has represented me as a buyer and seller on several land deals in Central Texas, and we have partnered on a couple of ranches together. We are friends now who hunt and fish together along with always searching for the next pristine ranch. Cody is a well respected professional who is one of the best, and well contacted, ranch brokers in Texas. The proof is in the listings and sales he has performed.

- Chuck Lummus, Retired Attorney

Best Video and Advertisements

Talk about the right team!! I did my research and interviewing of Ranch Real Estate Professionals. In the end, these were the guys. They stood out and had the right answers to my concerns and needs. Their video and advertisements were the best I've seen. Will Sorenson delivered the right Buyer and right offer within the first month. The superb service these guys delivered in a surprisingly short amount of time was incredible.

Felt Part of the Capitol Ranch Family

THANK YOU AND CAPITOL RANCH REAL ESTATE! As I said, God led you and Cody to us. Colton, you were always on top of things. You were professional, caring, and always had a happy disposition. We felt part of a family with Capitol, and Colton you will always be family. Thank for taking such good care of us. God's blessings to you and all of Capitol Ranch Real Estate."

The Extra Mile

I hired Cody Maxwell to sell my Vaquero South Pasture Ranch in Brazos County. This was a large sale for the area, and Capitol Ranch represented the property and myself in a very professional manner, and were as advertised. He went the extra mile in hiring and managing contractors to build roads, and make the beaches accessible, and was always there to lend a helping hand. In an access emergency, a bridge washed out in a rare flood, and he rebuilt it within the next two days so that we could get into the ranch! Not only did we sell the property for a satisfactory price and terms, but I gained a true friend in the process. Hire Capitol Ranch led by my friend, Cody Maxwell, to sell your ranch, because there’s not many outfits out there like them.

- Sonny DuBose, Brazos County

Out of State Seller

The transaction with Capitol Ranch Real Estate went very smoothly. I was happy with the market analysis that I was provided and the price I received for my land. I live out of state and was able to conduct everything remotely. I would recommend Capitol Ranch to others!

- Ron C., Denver, Colorado

Made the Transaction Easier

I was selling property that had been in my family for over 50 years. It was extremely emotional for me and Capitol Ranch agent Whitley did everything to make it easier. She has a huge heart and made sure a very complicated piece of property went as smooth as possible!

- Claudette, Milano, TX

List with Capitol Ranch First

I listed my 140 acres in Bosque County with Capitol Ranch after the previous broker could not sell, after a year of working on it. Within 3 months of listing, we had already CLOSED, and secured $4,000 an acre! Save time, and list with Capitol Ranch first!

- C. Andrews, Nacogdoches, TX

Under Contract in 45 Days

After months of trying to sell my ranch, Colton Harbert and Capitol Ranch were able to get my property under contract in 45 days! Colton went the extra mile to make sure things got done right.

- Earl Lindsey, Camp Creek Ranch

Very Pleased with the Sales Transaction and Price

My thanks to Cody and Capitol Ranch Real Estate for selling my 268 acre high fence ranch in Comanche County. I had listed my ranch with several other ranch real estate brokers with few showings and no offers. I am very pleased with the price I received and the sales procedure. If I find myself in the market to either buy or sell a ranch or farm property in the future, I will use Capitol Ranch!

- Jack Scott, Tolar, Texas

Knowledgeable on the Land Market

My wife and I listed some property in Bosque County, Texas with Capitol Ranch Real Estate. They handled the transaction from start to finish in a professional manner, and gave our property lots of personal attention. Capitol Ranch was very knowledgeable on the land market in our area. I would recommend them if you are serious about selling property. Thanks for everything!

- JC and Cecileen Stafford, Bosque County

Vision and Awareness

Napa Real Estate has worked with Cody Maxwell and his Capitol Ranch Real Estate Team for a couple of years now. We have bought property and sold property with Cody. His vision and awareness of the local markets is the main reason we enjoy working with his team.

Wanted to say what a great experience it was working with Colton Harbert at Capitol Ranch. I was never let down on any thing I asked Colton to do, whether wanting to know something about a property we were looking at or just always returning my calls promptly. I would recommend Colton to anybody who was looking to sell or to buy property. Thanks again Colton for a great job!

Best Agent in Texas

CAPITOL RANCH AND COLTON HARBERT “The Best Agent in Texas” My wife and I tried selling our farm and home for approximately one year on Zillow. We had numerous Real Estate companies come to our house under the pretense of looking to bring us a buyer. On each occasion before they left, we were presented with their sales pitch on listing with them. We were not impressed. But one day I received a call from Colton Harbert with Capitol Ranch telling us all about what they could do for us. I told him if he wanted to see our home, he was welcome. Colton drove all the way from Austin to our farm in Grapeland. He not only drove here but brought his boss Cody Maxwell and his Polaris UTV for exploring the property. After exploring features of the farm, he and Cody came into our home and told us all about Capitol Ranch showing us brochures of previous farms and ranches they had sold, plus current information on our property. There was something different about Colton than all the previous agents. He exhumed confidence that I had not seen before. There was no pressure to sign any documents when they left. Their presentation gave us so much enthusiasm, that within days we were signing documents for Capitol Ranch and mainly Colton Harbert as our selling agent. Colton was present at each showing of our farm, taking prospective buyers and their agents, on tours with his UTV. He showed them every feature on the property which he had input into his iPad the coordinates of each location. I cannot say enough about Colton. He was always willing to go beyond to not only give us confidence but all that came to tour our place. Colton would always get us answers to our many questions during this period. Between his visits, phone calls, text and e-mails we were in constant communication with up-to-date accounts. His work ethic is not seen often in today’s environment. If anyone is looking to sell their farm or ranch, Colton is the man. We love our Real Estate Agent, Colton Harbert!
