Hall and Hall listing included in The Wall Street Journal’s holdouts

The owner of California’s Oak Ridge Ranch, listed by Hall and Hall, has not wavered on price since he put it on the market in 2006. The ranch, owned by Jim Kirk, remains listed at $33 million.

The Wall Street Journal found Kirk and others for a story about high-end real estate holdouts – sellers who refuse to lower their asking prices despite the state of the housing market.

Oak Ridge Ranch, 6,500 acres, is located in Carmel Valley. The ranch includes a four-bedroom main house, guest house, hiking trails, swimming pool and staff housing. Besides Oak Ridge Ranch, Carmel Valley has only two other several-thousand-acre ranches.

Oak Ridge is a California cattle ranch that also features 21 stock ponds and wildlife, such as deer, turkey, quail, bobcat and Russian wild boar. The ranch has the potential to grow grapes.

Hall and Hall broker Bill McDavid tells The Wall Street Journal, “It only takes one buyer.”

Hall and Hall is a ranch real estate company that emphasizes land stewardship.
