As founders of American Redoubt Realty Inc., and Survival Retreat Consulting, our family lived the rat race in the San Francisco Bay Area for over a decade until one day in 2003, we had the pleasure of meeting James Wesley, Rawles. The advice he so authentically gave our family that day changed our lives forever.
For the next three years we struggled to break free of the urban crime-scape. We visited our chosen safe haven region in the American Redoubt over thirty times seeking the ultimate sustainable survival property that balanced the needs of our growing family, without being too far from a small rural town in Idaho or Montana (The real ‘core’ of the American Redoubt!).
Our journey was nothing short of stressful and frustrating. We thought with my prior military experience and the knowledge our family had learned covering all aspects of sustainable living, that the journey would be a simple one.
Our safe haven dreams were shattered when we realized that we couldn’t find a professional, discrete, consultant or Realtor to guide us through the search. There was nobody willing to pre-visit, screen and evaluate the properties we saw online based upon our criteria, thus saving valuable time and money making all those trips back and forth. We quickly figured out that local knowledge would play a huge part not only in our Strategic Relocation, but that of all the Clients we would help over the coming years.
The real estate agents we contacted never took the time to get to know our family or understand our hopes and dreams, they just wanted us to drive ourselves around and then call them if we wanted to write an offer. Unfortunately, this can be a typical scenario in some areas of rural America.
We felt like outcasts when all we wanted to do was find that perfect safe haven that would be comfortable for our family to live year round and bring us what we were lacking in the big city; Peace of Mind, Safety and Liberty. We yearned to grow our own food, to continue homeschooling our children and not worry about what model of rifle would be banned next by the tyrannical state government we were living under. We just wanted to be FREE!
After the chaos of our own relocation we decided to build a custom full service business model that would allow anyone, regardless of resources, to make one call and receive the service we only dreamed of having.
We have spent years cultivating relationships with professionals throughout the American Redoubt, and other selected Micro-Redoubt Safe Havens across the country. Now, these folks are available to you through our unique Prepper Realtor Referral Program.
