Dave Harrigan

Dave Harrigan has invested 20 years of traveling the mountains and high plains throughout the Rockies to successfully link buyers and sellers of quality hunting and fishing properties through Harrigan Land Company. “I love every part of the recreational ranch real estate business,” Dave says. “I love locating and evaluating hard-to-find recreational ranches, negotiating deals with buyers and sellers, and all the interesting and challenging due-diligence tasks involved with each transaction.”

Dave’s extensive experience in the Rockies, matched with integrity and an honest down-home friendliness, have been key to the success of the many real estate transactions he has brokered.

“Dave is a fair, reasonable, honest, hardworking, and understanding realtor. He listens to what you are looking for, and then he works hard to find it. Dave has high moral standards, a strong work ethic, and solid and strong business ethics and principles.”
Mike Dugan, CEO and President, Echostar Satellite Services, L.L.C.

A passion for the outdoors runs deep in Dave’s background. He was raised hunting and fishing in Oklahoma, and he graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1984. After enjoying time as a professional baseball catcher in the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs organizations, Dave co-founded the Rocky Mountain Angling Club with Don Hart in 1992, and was responsible for leasing over 70 fly fishing properties in Colorado and Wyoming. In 1995, Dave took time off from a busy work schedule to capture Top Rod Honors at Trout Unlimited’s prestigious Super Fly Tournament in Gunnison.

Today, Dave lives in the foothills of Colorado with his wife Dixie and Border Collie, Griffey. Whenever he can, Dave grabs his fly rod or bow and heads for the high country. The call of a bugling elk or the subtle rise of a big brown renews his love for all things outdoors and fuels his desire to help those of kindred spirit to fulfill their Rocky Mountain dreams, too. Whether you’re looking to find or sell your special piece of the Rockies, or just talk with someone who shares your love of hunting, fishing and the great outdoors, Dave is eager to have a friendly conversation with you.

Client Reviews

Harrigan Land Company is the best, especially if you have seven partners in four states and need someone not only to market the property, but help keep focus on the end goals. Many challenges are involved when selling the ranch, the least of which may be actually finding a buyer.  There are federal agencies with their rules and regulations, state agencies having their needs met, and then other challenges ranching that are unique to land sales.

Thanks to Dave and Hunter. they led us through this entire process to a successful conclusion.  They keep us constantly informed and in a timely manner meeting all deadlines. We could never have done it and maintained our sanity without their expertise.

I was asked by a client and good friend in Texas to interview Rocky Mountain ranch brokerage companies and recommend who they should hire to sell their legacy recreational mountain ranch. After interviewing a number of highly respected, specialized firms from several states, it was readily apparent that Harrigan Land Company was the right choice for this property.

Hunter and Dave Harrigan recognized and identified unique points of distinction and value within this ranch immediately during their first visit to the property. Their experience and exceptional understanding of mountain ranches, private fisheries, hunting, exquisite historical improvements and every other other component translated extremely well to the marketplace from the very beginning. They work tirelessly, communicate and pay attention to the fine details so that their client's best interests are cared for.

I give Harrigan Land Company my highest recommendation!

Take care and stay in touch,

From the moment our team first discussed the Ranch with Harrigan Land Company (HLC) all the way through closing the deal, Hunter and Dave consistently exuded experience, poise, class and work ethic. During their broker presentation to us, they stated something to the effect that no other broker would out work them. We fully bought into that at the time. Now, we can attest to it.

Our Ranch was one of the largest of its kind on the market and our team was based in the East. Hunter and Dave listened intently and appreciated our business objectives. From there, they set forth honest expectations related to price, timing and the market so that we could configure an approach that would meet our objectives. Despite all the challenges, we never doubted that HLC could get us to close.

Hunter was our main point of contact throughout the process. He consistently maintained communication and kept us well informed at every step. He was a quick study on the Ranch and in little time, he understood the Ranch as if he owned it for years. Hunter combined that knowledge with the artful use of technology and HLC’s collective hunting expertise to provide insightful, detailed and fulfilling showings to interested buyers. Once under contract, Hunter and Dave smoothly guided us through due diligence and some turbulent last minute issues.

Ultimately, Hunter and Dave exceeded our lofty expectations and successfully closed the Ranch in less than half the time originally expected. We are grateful for choosing HLC as our broker and would highly recommend them.

Thanks Hunter and Dave!

I am a Real Estate Developer and Custom Homebuilder in the Pittsburgh Area and run across a ton of real estate agents and Brokers, both good and bad. I can honestly say that in 30 years in business I have never experienced the quality of service I received in working with Harrigan Land. From the initial search to the viewing of several ranches, until we finally found the one that worked best for us. You guys were there for all the questions, numerous pickups at the airport and the final contract negotiations and everything in between. I have already recommended you guys to several friends who hope to someday also own a Western Ranch. The service is the best you will experience start to finish with no high pressure sales. Hats off to you guys for making our Ranch buying a seamless and pleasant experience. I hope to purchase another one in the near future and will definitely be using Harrigan Land.

Hunter and Dave, I want to thank you for all the hard work in getting this deal done. Especially last week when I was tied up in New York. You guys did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what I’ve ever seen from a real estate agent. I couldn’t be more impressed and grateful. Thank you so much.

Three or four years ago, we started looking for ranch properties in the mountains to fulfill a life, long dream. We really had no idea exactly what we were looking for at the time. I contacted Hunter Harrigan to inquiry about different ranches that I had seen online. After several phone conversations, we agreed to meet him to look at several properties. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. Hunter had plenty of patience and never made us feel like our questions were foolish. It would have been easy for him to consider us to be “tire kickers” and ignore our phone calls.

After we narrowed our search to a couple properties, Hunter introduced us to his dad, Dave. His knowledge and expertise of real estate is phenomenal. We consider Dave to be the “closer”. He knew exactly what questions to ask the seller’s realtor. We knew we were in good hands. He went above and beyond expectations. After the closing, he was still helping us make crucial decisions.

We would recommend Harrigan Land Company to anyone interested in purchasing property. This father/son team is a class act! We will always consider them to be our friends

"Integrity and Professionalism, the Harrigan's have both.  They earned our trust and their efforts produced a great result.  We would recommend them to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a ranch.”

Stu July 10, 2015

As we began our search for a western ranch, Hunter and Dave developed an excellent understanding of the type of property we were wanted and were able to identify many attractive options.  They were available 24/7 to make that search efficient, effective and exhaustive.  By ensuring that we saw many properties, when the right one become available, we knew it was a good fit.  And, their deep understanding of the market for Western ranches inspired great confidence when it came time to pull the trigger.

Mike July 9, 2015

We have worked with several Brokers and Harrigan Land was by far the most effective.  Hunter and Dave got to know our property like it was their own.  We were pleased with their ability to both attract and filter prospects and to get the deal done.

“Harrigan Land Company contacted me as a nearby landowner to a property they were selling after doing research on potential buyers.  They pointed out that I was likely an appropriate buyer for the tract of land and worked hard to bring the parties together.  The transaction closed quickly and seamlessly.  I have now been using the firm for other ranch purchases based on this excellent experience.”
