Jim Taylor



Raised on a remote cattle ranch on the Crow Indian Reservation in south central Montana, Jim began his education in a one-room schoolhouse. He later went east to boarding school at St. Paul’s School and then graduated from Yale University in 1967 with a B.A. in Latin American History. After a brief stint on Wall Street and an exploratory year in South America, Jim came to Hall and Hall in 1972 as one of only two ranch partners. Even then, he was convinced that investment in the unique landscapes of the Rocky Mountain West would appeal to a national and even international clientele. Since then, he and a growing number of co-owners and partners in multiple offices throughout the region have built Hall and Hall into what is arguably the largest ranch real estate firm in the world specializing in the financing, sale and management of the “investment-quality rural real estate” of the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains and increasingly throughout the world. Jim is a retired polo player, a fly-fisherman, and has been involved as a board member of the Montana Nature Conservancy and serves on the Yellowstone Park Foundation’s Advisory Counsel. He enjoys international travel with his wife who operates a safari company. He continues to encourage Hall and Hall’s involvement with unique, wild properties throughout the world.
