“I want to thank both Braun & Gresham and their sister company, Plateau Land & Wildlife Management, for the help and support they provided. It always felt like Patrick Reznik and James Hall [Certified Wildlife Biologist for Plateau] went ‘over and above’ the call of duty. Patrick made me feel very calm by providing a strategic plan and moral support, and James’ detailed explanations and time he took with the property always made me feel they both had my back.” – Tomasz J, Texas Landowner

“He knew the players, he knew the process, and he knew when we should call it a day. A seasoned attorney will advise you when you have maximized your opportunity and the time has come to sign. That depth of expertise is essential – you don’t want to experiment with your land.”
