Jeff's love of the outdoors began in his late teens when he got the opportunity to hunt whitetails on a friend's family farm. It didn't take long for him to get hooked on the adrenalin rush that comes with getting close to wild game, especially the elusive whitetail. His passion grew deeper when his older brother purchased a local farm in 1993 and gave Jeff the opportunity to hunt and help manage the 100 acre tract of land. By his late 20's, Jeff's desire to hunt larger bucks led him to a Northern Missouri hunting lease. The quality of hunting on this 134 acre tract of land was the best he had ever experienced. When the opportunity to purchase the farm came available Jeff and his hunting partners purchased the tract and his dreams of owning his own land became a reality. Jeff hasn't looked back since his first land purchase. Since then he and his wife have purchased, improved, and sold a number of properties in Northeast MO and Westcentral IL. They currently own and manage 3 farms totaling 925 acres. The benefits of being a landowner are far greater than Jeff ever imagined. The hunting is great but the joy and satisfaction that comes with improving a piece of land that you own is undescribable, especially when you can share it with family and friends. The potential financial reward that can be achieved with good land management, hard work, and the grace of God can out perform any stock portfolio he knows of. With Jeff's passion for growing big whitetails and managing his own properties, it was logical choice to jump at the opportunity to join the Whitetail Properties team. His goal is to use his experiences to help other buyers and sellers achieve their goals in a enjoyable, respectable, and professional manner. Jeff currently resides in Ste Genevieve, MO with his lovely wife Kelly and their three children Sally, Kaydi, and Gage.
