Who: The Cabela’s Trophy Properties network reaches nationwide through an impressive affiliate broker network, offering both auction and traditional brokerage services. “Auctions through our affiliates cover a wide variety of property types, but generally involve farms and ranches, many with a strong recreational influence,” says Derrick Volchoff, ALC, manager of Cabela’s Trophy Properties.
Where: Corporate headquarters are in Sidney, Nebraska, with offices covering the United States plus Canada, South America, and the Caribbean.
Why: The company is known for its strict criteria in accepting listings, requiring them to qualify as “trophy properties.” In addition, the company’s network includes recreational property experts whose specialty is wildlife habitat development and lake management.
Wow: The 4,321-acre Mulehead Ranch (pictured above) in South Dakota was auctioned by affiliate Dakota Properties (No. 26 on this year’s list). The working cattle ranch is bordered by five miles of the Missouri River, features a dense mix of hardwood timber, and has mature populations of mule and whitetail deer, bobcats, Merriam turkey, pheasants, quail, ducks, and more.
