Mossy Oak® Properties touches down in California

Brings decades of experience to growing land brokerage network

MOPCalF&R_logoBakersfield, CA - Mossy Oak Properties is pleased to announce that it has opened its first California office with the opening of Mossy Oak Properties California Farm & Ranch in Bakersfield. 

Mossy Oak Properties California Farm & Ranch is led by the father-son team of Ron and Derek Sprague. With over four decades of experience, Ron has developed a broad and extensive expertise in nearly every aspect of real estate, including the sale and leasing of agricultural and ranch properties. Derek has been a licensed real estate broker for over ten years, earning his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation, along with being recognized by the National Association of REALTOR’s in its “30 Under 30” issue of REALTOR Magazine and as the 2016 REALTOR of the Year by the Bakersfield Association of REALTORS.

“We are excited to join a rapidly growing Mossy Oak Properties network and to be a part of its expansion into California,” said Derek. “When we first started talking with the leadership at Mossy Oak Properties, we knew that we were working with a group that shared the same values like integrity, family, and faith. By partnering with Mossy Oak Properties, our office and our clients have access to the resources and support of a nationwide network, while still maintaining the same independent local presence that we’ve had for decades.”  

“We are based in California’s Southern San Joaquin Valley, an area abundant in agricultural land and rural estates,” explained Ron.  “As a result of our centralized location, we have the resources to work on farms, ranches, and recreational properties across the state. We are versed in statewide issues such as the availability of water and the impact of groundwater legislation, which can be significant barriers to develop a property, and the volatility of land prices.  Mossy Oak Properties is an ideal complement to our expertise in land sales, and will give us an edge over our regional competition.”

Chris Hawley, Co-Founder and CEO/President of Mossy Oak Properties, said “There is no substitute for experience and relationships in the land brokerage business, and Ron and Derek Sprague have both in spades.  We are very excited to bring a father-son duo of their caliber into our network, and strongly believe they will quickly bring our brand into the forefront in California.”
