Shelly Means is the personification of a true Texan, “Dyed in the Wool”. Her roots and heritage go back as far as 1821 to Austin’s colony, making her family a part of the “Old Three Hundred”. Her grandfather arrived in far West Texas in the 1930’s to ranch and have cattle hauling and feed business to help the rancher. Shelly married into a ranching family that has been in Jeff Davis County since 1884. She and her husband, Bodie Means, and their daughter, Evan, are thankful to live in the original ranch headquarters and ranch on the Y6 Ranch that was homesteaded by Bodie’s grandfather John Zak Means.
Shelly has spent most of her career in all facets of the oil and gas industry. She has negotiated oil & gas leases, bought Right of Ways, and spent long days in courthouses all over Texas and parts of the United Stated dealing with attorneys, landowners, and landmen. A most important part of her career is the fact that she was able to meet, work with and form lifelong relationships with people that she loves from all walks of life.
Her Texas roots, the skills she honed over 25 years in oil and gas, her ranch and land expertise, and a determined attitude serves her well for real estate. She builds land legacies for her clients as she and her family have done and continue to do to this day.
