Meet the Owners
Jack Jones

Howdy, my name is Jack D. Jones. Even though I cuss a little when I get mad, I'm a Christian. I grew up in West Texas in a ranching and cattle environment back during the terrible drought of the 1950's. Times were pretty tough. I didn't think it was ever gonna rain. It was so dry a jackrabbit had to carry a sack lunch for seven long years. My Daddy was a cattle and sheep trader. Before I was born, Daddy traded horses and mules. When drought forced the ranchers to sell their herds of cattle and sheep in the 50's before they starved to death or when they didn't have any money or credit left to buy feed for the stock, my Daddy would buy some of the herds and re-sell 'em and try to make a few bucks. Sometimes he made a little and sometimes he lost a little. But, with the help of my Mother and his partners, we came out of these hard times in pretty good shape.

Being raised in the wide open spaces, I always wanted to own one of those big ol' ranches. In the early 70's with the help of my father-in-law, I was able to own and be a pardner on a ranch in Colorado. Talk about "lucky". I was the luckiest guy in the world. Turns out it was good for both of us.

And, now some 30 years later I've still got some of the land I bought back in the early 70's along with other land that myself and my pardner, an old school buddy from West Texas, have been able to pick up along the way at a good price.

I'm proud that we can make it easy for our friends and customers to own land which is the best investment in the world. Look our land over and meet our team who'll do their best to work with you. Whether it's investment, camping, hunting, homesite, 4 X 4'ing or whatever, we probably have a ranch you'll be proud to own.

Milton Nickel

Howdy, my name is Milton Nickel. I grew up in West Texas on a ranch during the drought of the 1950's. I worked in my Dad's ranch supply business until I went off to college to play basketball and get a degree. After college, I moved back to West Texas and taught school for a few years. I was introduced to the car business by my father-in-law, quit teaching, and eventually grew into owning several new car dealerships in the West Texas area. After selling out in the late 80's, I moved to Montana and now operate five car lots.

My partner, Jack Jones and I stayed in touch and did a few land deals in Colorado back in the 70's. Selling land on credit like Jack did, always appealed to me. Cars go down in value and the land goes up in value which is why I like the land business.

Eventually, the opportunity presented itself for Jack and me to buy a very beautiful tract of mountain land in Oklahoma, which we did. We formed our corporation called Nickel/Jones, Inc. and now have Pine Mountain Ranch in Oklahoma and some ranch land in Wyoming and Nevada which we offer to investors, hunters, RV'ers, etc.

Personally, I think land is probably the best, and without a doubt, the safest investment for anyone. Check out our different tracts and if it appeals to you, we can make owning the land possible for you.
