Fred Goffstein has been in real estate his whole life. Actually, his family has been in the real estate business for four generations. 

After graduating from the University of Missouri in 1965 with degrees in business & real estate, he built up a brokerage business in the St. Louis area from a single office to six offices, becoming the largest century 21 franchisee in the Missouri/Kansas/Illinois regions. 


 During the 59 years he worked with residential brokerage, property management & investments, Fred also owned a custom development and construction company, which focused on high end-priced custom homes. He was responsible for the entire operation of this company - including acquisition of land, design, permitting, construction, financing & sales.

Being a cowboy at heart and an avid outdoor enthusiast, Fred decided to leave the big city of St. Louis in 2002 and struck out for Wyoming. He's never looked back.

Fred's lifelong real estate experiences and his love of the outdoors has placed him on a new real estate focus - that of outdoor recreational real estate and development.
