The River Ranch Team
Following graduation from Willamette University, Judd completed Officer Candidate School in Newport, R.I. and served 3 years as a U.S. Navy officer. Upon completion of his military service he joined the San Francisco office of a large securities firm where he specialized in portfolio management and investment research. Ten years later he founded Envirotherm, Inc. a firm serving the commercial, industrial and residential
markets in the Bay Area involving insulation, sound proofing, and windows.
In 1980, Judd and his wife, Diane, purchased Brown’s Industries, Inc. in McCall, Idaho including an interest in Brundage Mountain Ski Area. Shortly later they purchased Evan’s Building Center in Eagle, Idaho and Payette Lakes Lumber Co. in McCall. In 1981 the family relocated from San Rafael to Boise and McCall.
For most of his adult life, Judd has been involved in real estate investment and development involving timberlands, ranches and commercial developments. Judd has headed the on-going extensive development at Brundage Development Resort for the past 30 plus years, and in 2006 the DeBoer family bought out their partner, the J.R. Simplot Co., becoming sole owners.
In 2000, Judd and Diane and their family conceived and developed Salmon Rapids Lodge overlooking the Salmon River in Riggins, Idaho. The family continues to operate this 55 room award winning hotel.
Judd and Diane’s vision for the beautiful River Ranch matched that of their partner’s, the Hart Family. River Ranch is an upscale residential community with 2-1/2 miles of river front, lakes, nature trails, and preserves, Members’ Ranch House and a fabulous guest cabin. They take pride in River Ranch knowing that families will enjoy this spectacular property for generations to come. This is especially meaningful for Diane since their children now are 4th generation McCall.
Judd has served as a director of numerous industry boards and was appointed by three Idaho Governors to serve on the Idaho Travel Council. Judd and Diane were honored to receive the “Outstanding Contribution to the Sport of Skiing” award by the Intermountain Ski Areas Association and Judd was named the 2018 recipient of the ”Governor’s Lifetime Achievement in Recreation and Tourism” award.
Chris Reino’s passion for our small mountain town and success in the real estate business were established long ago and are an ideal fit today as a member of the River Ranch team. He is from a small town in Northwest Ohio where he was mentored in a family business environment that honed his skills in customer service, sales, and good old-fashioned face-to-face communication.
Chris’ second home and resort property sales roots run deep as does his love for the McCall, Idaho area.
He was one of Tamarack Resort’s original 12 employees after he was recruited to start the real estate sales program for what was then WestRock Resort.
This experience followed his two-year tenure at Spring Mountain Ranch where he represented vacation home and property sales. After five years at Tamarack, and over a year with Prudential Resort Properties in Donnelly, Chris’s career shifted to McCall where he spent four years at Community Real Estate. In June of 2013, he was recruited to re-start the real estate sales efforts at Whitetail/Shore Lodge, where he had 18 months of successful sales.
Today, Chris is a full-time resident who appreciates and participates in all that our community has to offer throughout the seasons to locals and visitors alike. Those who know him best will tell you that he is as thrilled as he is honored to have joined McCall Real Estate where he represents River Ranch and other fine properties buyers and sellers alike.
