Established in 2010, Galen, and his brother John, own and operate Chase Brothers LLC. Galen’s experience and passion for ranching, livestock, and the people and land that support it all have contributed to his 15 years of real estate experience selling ranches, recreational properties, fine homes, estates, and commercial properties in Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
Galen grew up on a cattle ranch north of Leiter, Wyoming where he spent much of his life helping his family operate and manage their family’s ranch; which at the time was one of the premier Red Angus seedstock operations in the county, Buffalo Creek Red Angus. The program was well known for having cattle that worked in commercial environments for the commercial cattlemen. They sold bulls, semen, and cows all over the world. He also spent time in Texas where he was privileged to work with the NRHA hall of famer, John Hoyt, where he learned to start colts and train reining horses. After Texas, Galen headed to Colorado State University to study agriculture and graduated with a degree in Animal Sciences.
Galen met his wife, Jill in 1996, and shortly after, they were married. He continued working on his family’s ranch and over the next couple of years worked for Sinclair Cattle Company in Ainsworth, Nebraska, the Switchback Ranch in Roscoe, Montana, as well starting a private label specialty beef company that evolved into sourcing and feeding cattle for Bill Niman, of Niman Ranch in California. In 1998, they were blessed with their daughter, Peyton, and in 2002, they were blessed with their second daughter, Olivia.
Galen and Jill now live near Sheridan, WY on a small rural agricultural property where they run a small herd of Red Angus cows and have several horses. Staying connected to the land and livestock is really important to him, especially when it comes to properly serving clients. His life experiences, working for highly reputable and distinguished ranches set a high bar of excellence in all matters pertaining to Chase Brothers.
I spent 4 ½ years looking at Ranches in Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming… Chase Brothers always put my interest ahead of the sale.
John and Galen were raised on a remote ranch in the hills above the Powder River where they learned Western values from their parents that guide them in the conduct of their company.
