Bret Polk was raised on a working ranch along the Bosque River just North of Hico, Texas. He developed a passion for hunting, fishing, and the natural beauty of this part of Central Texas, at a young age. Something he shares with his wife and three children today.
In 1999, Bret graduated from Tarleton State University with a B.S. in turfgrass management and was hired by Rough Creek Lodge and Resort as superintendent of resort grounds and a couple years later as assistant superintendent at Lake Fork’s acclaimed championship golf course, The Links at Land’s End. Each of these positions allowed him unique opportunities and invaluable experience working on property development and enhancement projects. With a growing family and intent of raising his children on the family ranch near Hico, he returned in 2002 where he went to work for a land surveying company. After six years working in the land surveying industry, Bret started his own firm in 2008.
He has had the pleasure of assisting clients with their land acquisitions and sales surveying farm and ranch property throughout Central Texas, including Bosque, Hamilton, Erath, Comanche, Mills, Lampasas, Coryell, Hill, and Somervell counties. He currently owns and operates Polk Land Surveying, specializing in farm and ranch boundary and topographic surveys. He has also worked with numerous land owners on private lake construction projects and the NRCS on flood control structure rehabilitation projects. In 2012, Bret received his Texas Real Estate License and joined the Hortenstine Ranch Company team. Bret uses his vast knowledge from surveying, land management, and land development to assist clients who desire to sell or purchase ranches for sale in Texas, more specifically in the Central Texas area.
