June 7 & 8, 2018 – CORLI & Open Fences Ranch & Land Tour

The Ranch & Land Tour provided the opportunity to view ranches in Central COLORADO, specifically Park & Teller Counties.   For a glimpse of the tour, watch the video.

“Good Morning Bart,

I wanted to thank you for the RLI Tour last Thursday.  Great to get out and see the ranches and talk with other brokers.  It is surprising how many new and creative ideas you can share with others while driving around in a truck.  I am new to the RLI group but already have benefited from the membership.

Thanks again it was much appreciated!”

June 7, 8 & 9, – CORLI & Open Fences Ranch & Land Tour Location – Ouray, Montrose and Delta Counties in Southwest Colorado   


Summer Agricultural Meeting, Grain to Glass, and a Little Grass Greeley, Colorado                               AWESOME Ag Tour………..we learned a lot and had fun doing it!

On July 20 and 21, the Colorado Chapter held their Ag Tour and Marketing Meeting in Greeley, Colorado. The Colorado and Kansas RLI chapters have made this an annual event the last few years and both chapters were well represented. The tour was hosted by Kirk Goble, ALC from Greeley, assisted by Tom Rainbolt of American Ag Credit in Greeley, a long time RLI sponsor. There were 32 participants representing 5 states. Kirk’s stated goal was to “show off Weld County agriculture!”

Weld County is the top producing agricultural county in Colorado at about $1.9 billion/year and is consistently ranked in the top 6 ag counties in the country. Additionally, Weld County is the top oil and gas producing county in Colorado and the area’s early settlers were influential in establishing western water law and development of irrigation systems.

The tour started at the Colorado Model Railroad Museum, the largest model railroad layout in the world, with introductions and a preview of the day’s activities. After a light breakfast and a chance to see the museum, everyone boarded a bus for the remainder of the day.          Read more…...








Did you miss a meeting?

Were you at the recent Chapter Marketing Session and can’t remember the details about a property that was presented?  Maybe you have a new buyer that would be interested in it, and you want to look at it again and talk to the broker.  Maybe you didn’t make it to the meeting and you want to see what you missed.  Contact me and I can send you the information or help you get in touch with the broker.  Email Maggie at or 720-491-1754.
