Rachel made the entire land purchase a "piece of cake". She walked me through everything and was right on top of things. As soon as I sent the money, the deed was notarized and recorded only a couple of days later. I just visited my new property in Wolf Creek Montana today and I am very pleased with the purchase. Thank you again 😊

The Ashbrook Land Company is a superb company. Their communication skills and desire to help you obtain the land of your dreams is top notch. Probably some of the best service I’ve had when buying a piece of land. I would recommend them to anyone.

I just purchased a piece of land from Ashbrook Land Co., LLC, and I am very happy with the professional yet personal approach that Bob and Rachel Ashbrook gave to me.The whole process was easy and painless, and only took a couple of days. Everything was done online, but I felt completely secure giving out my personal information, because I think the Ashbrooks are truly honest people to deal with.
