Broker/Owner Fred Nelson

Our goal is not to be the biggest real estate company around, but to be a company known for personalized service and integrity. We have made lifelong friendships in the course of bringing buyers and sellers together, and that is our real satisfaction in building a real estate business.

We concentrate our marketing efforts to Fremont County, WY which is beautiful, diversified area of Wyoming. From the irrigated farmlands of the central part of the county to the Wind River Mountain Range to the west and Owl Creek Mountains to the north, the landscape is varying and beautiful in its diversity.

Sales Associate Magen McNutt

Magen McNutt is our new addition to the Range Realty family. Originally from Michigan, she has enjoyed her home here in Wyoming for the past 11 years. With her husband Eli, along with their children Wade and Elsie, they are proud to be members of the Riverton community.

Magen began her journey out west in 2007 wrangling at a dude ranch north of Jackson. She fell in love with the Tetons and the adventurous lifestyle they provide. With a huge heart for animals and sharing her love and knowledge, of the park, she advanced her wrangling career into the head wrangler position until 2016. Eli and Magen purchased their horse shoeing company in the spring of 2016 and have been providing shoeing services to outfits from Cody, WY to Victor/Driggs ID. Magen and Eli moved to Kinnear in the fall of 2016 to begin their family.

"Coming originally from the Midwest we truly appreciate not only the state of Wyoming but particularly the opportunities we have here. Especially raising our children in this rich agricultural community. We have just touched the tip of the sagebrush on what this area truly has to offer. We are a young family that enjoys hunting, fishing and being outdoors. Living on Ocean Lake puts us just minutes from our favorite activities to live the fullest of lives. I am very ambitious to jump in the Wind River with both feet to lend an open ear and assist my clients to find their own perfect piece of Wyoming.”

Her integrity and honesty coupled with her eagerness to learn and passion to spread her knowledge is as fresh as the Fremont County alfalfa. She is dedicated to providing a service ranging far and wide from first time buyers to folks that have been down the trail a time or two.

We welcome her with open arms and look forward to watching this young woman and family grow.

Why Wyoming

The agriculture base in Fremont County is alfalfa and cow/calf operations. There are some row crops such as sugar beets, beans and corn, although the area is primarily known for it’s high quality alfalfa, much of which is shipped to out-of-state dairies. Since we are in a high-desert arid climate, our crops have to be irrigated.

One of the largest irrigation projects in the country, the Midvale Irrigation District, is located in Pavillion. In Wyoming, water rights are attached to the land and cannot be severed. In the Midvale Irrigation District, water rights are not prioritized by date: everyone has the same priority and gets the same allotment of water based on their number of acres. Ditch riders maintain the allotments. This keeps the number of “disputes” over water to a minimum.

Our Support

To Future Real Estate Buyers and Sellers in Fremont County:

Our names are Larry and Chris McClimans from Illinois. We had been searching for a Wyoming property through all of the usual sources,, Zillow, etc. We were referred to Fred Nelson at Range Realty. We called him and he immediately met us in Riverton and we discussed our needs.

He found us a property that was not listed for sale at the time but which he knew the owner wanted to sell. Even though the property wasn’t listed, he presented it to us, knowing that he had no agreement with anyone to pay him anything for his efforts.

We loved the property and put an offer in on it, which was accepted. We had to go back to Illinois but had bought some cows from SW Wyoming which were going to be delivered while we weren’t here. Fred took delivery of the cattle for us and cared for them on his land until we got back.

If you are looking for a Realtor who will put your interests first, call Fred at Range Realty.

Larry and Chris McCLimans

Thanks much for the kind referral Larry and Chris. It was great meeting you and we welcome you to the community. We are also especially excited that you are our new neighbors!

Fred Nelson

There are realtors and there are realtors. Fred Nelson is above and beyond what one would expect from a realtor. Fred drove my husband and I around for a full day looking at properties. He listened carefully to our needs and desires and came up with the perfect property.

Moving does not happen overnight and there are logistics to moving from out of state. Fred came out and watered the pasture twice while we were not yet here. Fred also appeared with a tractor and a work crew to unload the moving rig. Who would expect this kind of service from a realtor? It is pretty amazing.

Fred is not just our realtor he is our neighbor and new friend. If you are thinking of moving in this part of Wyoming, this is the man to guide you. You will not be disappointed.
