LARAMIE, WY (September 30, 2014)—The University of Wyoming’s Riverbend Ranch has been sold thanks in large part to local ranch broker James Rinehart of Western United Realty, LLC. The listing sold on September 26, with proceeds going to the University of Wyoming Foundation.
Rinehart’s extensive knowledge of the ranch and the area helped the buyers feel confident in their transaction. “After three years on the market, the entire ranch closed with great clients of mine, Reb and Molly Clark, who are looking forward to being the agricultural stewards of this fine Big Laramie River property as a working ranch and being actively involved in Wyoming’s agricultural community,” says Rinehart.
The Riverbend Ranch is 15 miles west of Laramie and consists of 6,700 acres with 6.5 miles of the river. It’s an excellent hay ranch and winter headquarters for livestock. It is permanently protected by a conservation easement held by Wyoming Game and Fish, which added some extra complexities to the sale.
Luckily, Rinehart has in-depth experience with conservation easements and was up to the challenge to benefit the buyers' long-term investment and plans to utilize the ranch for agriculture and recreation for generations to come. That’s music to the ears of all hunters, fisherman and anyone interested in the preservation of our Wyoming agricultural landscape.
Needless to say, when there is a significant ranch that needs to be sold—sellers call specialists in ranch brokerage to get it done. Western United Realty, LLC has been brokering these beautiful properties in Wyoming and Colorado for more than 30 years. Mike Jorgenson of Fay Ranches in Montana was the listing broker, and played an important role in facilitating this purchase throughout the process.

All September long, 9NEWS meteorologist, Belen De Leon, is helping the Colorado celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month—and we thought it’s the perfect time to feature her!
Belen is someone who we personally admire—and one 9NEWS personality that has grown to be loved by many viewers across Colorado in a few short years.
Who is Belen? She’s a wife. A mother of three boys. A gorgeous singer. A fantastic on-air meteorologist. But what else is there to this amazing local TV personality?
She’s our featured “Get to Know” Colorado celebrity this time around—Belen has given us 15 facts about herself that not too many people know:
1. I played Rizzo in a school musical of "Grease."
2. I am a wannabe Gardner.
3. My favorite movies are Shawshank Redemption, and any 80s movie with Molly Ringwald.
4. I have a weakness for chocolate cake.
5. I have a 79 T-top Corvette.
6. My happy place is remembering my boys as babies asleep in my arms.
Okay, okay. She’s being a little modest with those facts—since she failed to mention one little tidbit about her past that we absolutely love. Belen and her band (that she joined right out of high school) received a gold album for record number of sales and TWO Latin Billboard Awards. So, yeah. She’s literally a rockstar.
