Texas Ranch Realtor Anthony Simpson was born and raised in South Texas. After graduating from high school he went to work in the construction industry. In the 15 years that followed, he became proficient in Commercial, Residential and Ranch Improvement Construction. It was during this time, that one of his clients (a Ranch and Real Estate Developer) became interested in mentoring him in the Ranch Real Estate Business. In 2002 Anthony began working alongside Mike Stewart of Stewart Ranches.com. During these years Anthony discovered his talent and passion for Ranch Brokering. Anthony earned his Broker’s’ License in 2011 and decided to strike out on his own with his company… Simpson Ranches & Land, LLC.
Anthony is married to Pam Simpson (Realtor and Partner) and the father of four grown children. He has and will always be married to the Land. Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife Preservation are at the core of his Ranch Real Estate Philosophy, while helping his clients maintain sound financial investment decisions, whether buying or selling Ranch Real Estate.
Anthony, from a very young age, has always been involved in hunting, fishing and ranching. It is a lifestyle… Not an acquired hobby. His reputation for straight shooting and his extensive knowledge of South Texas Ranches have truly set him apart from other Ranch Brokers.
Pam Simpson was born in the Pan Handle and raised in the West Texas Oil Fields. Pam’s father worked for Shell Pipeline and her brother is a geologist. A Midland Lee High School graduate, Pam didn’t live anywhere else until 25 years ago when she moved to the Hill Country outside of Austin. Fishing, camping, and the outdoors have always been a way of life for her, but hunting was added when she met Anthony Simpson a little over 20 years ago...
Pam has had a Real Estate license since 2007 and has Ranch and Residential Real Estate experience. As a mother of four and a former business owner, Pam understands the assets of time and money and will work overtime to help her clients with the management of their assets.

Josh Hartwick grew up in the small town of Sealy, Texas where he spent most of his childhood hunting and fishing. A strong interest in the outdoors led him to an early investigation of wildlife management techniques. At a young age, Josh entered the sport of international three position competitive rifle shooting and expanded his skills to include many other rifle disciplines. After spending many years as a national award winning, competitive rifle shooter, Josh decided to pursue a degree in wildlife biology and management. Globally renowned for their wildlife research program, Texas A&M University in Kingsville provided Josh with the education he was seeking. While attending the university, Josh gained valuable field experience through research projects with the Cesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute. Josh was elected the president of the university’s Wildlife Society. Josh also filled positions as a hunting guide at many well-known South Texas ranches including the legendary King Ranch.

After completing his degree and earning the title of Certified Wildlife Biologist, Josh felt that he wanted to share his knowledge and passion for hunting and fishing with as many people as possible. While in college, Josh had started a small hunting outfitting service, Feathers & Sheds Unlimited, LLC (FSU Outdoors). With his studies completed, and an already sound business platform and clientele following, FSU Outdoors began to grow. Josh became a U.S. Coast Guard approved, licensed Marine Captain. With the new credentials, he was able to add fishing charters and guided duck hunts to his outfitting service. In addition, FSU Outdoors established a consulting firm that provides biological consultation services to land owners such as wildlife surveys, harvest management plans, and habitat reconstruction. Josh is also certified, by Safe Capture International, in wildlife chemical immobilization and provides consultation and trap/transport services to wildlife breeding operations.
