It is my pleasure to announce that Legendary Land Company has merged with Trevor Potts of Potts Land Company. Trevor and I have become partners of and will move forward under the Legendary Land Company name. As brokers, we have successfully collaborated on numerous high profile projects throughout our careers. Trevor has made a name for himself by specializing in recreational agricultural land in South Central Oklahoma along the I-35 corridor and the Red River, selling 120 ranches in the past six years. This merger has been an intuitive fit for both companies due to the overlap in clientele and territory, as well common goals, personalities and ethical standards.
Also joining the Legendary team from Potts Land Company is Cody Gillham. Cody has a wide knowledge of Southern Oklahoma land and both its agricultural and recreational uses. Cody specializes in Horse and Cattle ranches and with the hustle and marketing knowledge of two seasoned land brokers supporting him we anticipate he will quickly become the premiere, go-to agent for horse properties in Oklahoma.
Legendary Land Company will continue to specialize on Large Acreages with Exceptional Water Features, but both brokers have extensive knowledge of land with various uses and characteristics. Our expertise includes not only farm, ranch, and recreational properties but we also have experience with transitional land near the outskirts of urban sprawl. This merger will allow us to work more productively and efficiently to provide an even better product for our clients moving into the future.

Dan Ward’s career started at a very young age in the Flint Hills of eastern Kansas. He grew up in Wichita and spent time with his grandmother fishing, hunting, and exploring Otter Creek and Fall River. In the summer he got up early to fish farm ponds around the small town of Severy in Greenwood County then helped his grandma mow, pick beans in the garden, and tackle any other tasks she had lined up for him. Several summer breaks during college were spent traveling all over Greenwood and Elk Counties hauling some of the best prairie hay in the country to poorly ventilated and extremely hot barns by way of a “hay monster”. It was through these experiences that his love for the outdoors grew.
In 2004, Dan earned his real estate license and began the journey. Since then he has continued to be a student of all aspects of real estate to provide the best experience possible for his clients. Dan is not trying to generate credibility by way of a national name brand organization or leveraging the success of 100 agents from within a cleverly marketed company to impress or convince a client he is the right choice.
He knows the key to success in this business is getting up every day with the client in mind and hustling to perform at a high level. Dan has spent over a decade personally putting in the time to build the team that will guide his clients through the process of a real estate transaction with the personal knowledge of the territory to make the experience as profitable as possible.
His standard of excellence is high, and always open for improvement, especially as rapid changes in the technology side of marketing continue to develop. With that in mind, he believes that every advertised property should include exceptional maps, photos, video and a clear, complete description for the most comprehensive advertising package possible.
Dan exclusively represents large acreage tracts and specializes on properties with exceptional water features such as large lakes, rivers, creeks and wetlands.
Dan continues to enjoy spending time in the outdoors with his family and especially taking his son and his son’s friends on hunting & fishing trips. Land offers an opportunity for those special memories to be made and traditions to be carried on from generation to generation. Knowing he is helping others create these moments is the most enjoyable benefit to see his clients experience.
Dan truly believes that no other type of real estate can inspire the same connections with family & friends and considers it a blessing to experience some of the most beautiful land in the central United States alongside them.
University of Oklahoma Graduate
Active Board Member of: Family Shelter of Southern Oklahoma, Arbuckle Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Red River Limbhangers Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), and the Oklahoma Wildlife Management Association (OWMA)
Trevor was born and raised in Ardmore, Oklahoma and has spent his entire life hunting, fishing, working and managing land across Southern Oklahoma. He is an avid outdoorsman who pursues wildlife year-round, during whatever season may be open. Trevor is a landowner himself and has learned the hard way how to manage the landscape to produce the ideal wildlife property. He is most happy sitting in a tree stand, duck blind or on a tractor, as well as running a chainsaw or walking with a drip torch during a prescribed burn.
After graduating college from the University of Oklahoma and marrying his beautiful wife Jackie, he moved back home to Ardmore to fulfill his dream of working on and with the land he loves so much. They now have a rambunctious three year old boy named Eli who keeps them beyond busy.
In addition to work and play, Trevor stays very active in his community, through both non-profit and wildlife-related organizations. He currently sits on the managing boards of the following: Family Shelter of Southern Oklahoma, Arbuckle Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Red River Limbhangers Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), and the Oklahoma Wildlife Management Association (OWMA). Trevor helps organize, guide and run several Youth and Veteran hunts each year.
Trevor joined the Legendary Land Company team in 2018, after founding his own real estate company in 2014, Potts Land Company. He founded PLC to provide landowners in Southern Oklahoma with a brokerage that specifically specialized in land, as well as to help interested buyers target a property that fully met their needs. Trevor’s business model at PLC was simple, although surprisingly unique: to provide all of the most professional services found with the largest national companies, yet also provide the local knowledge and attentive service found with a small, local company. With over 34,000 acres of ranches sold over a six year period, he is proud of the reputation and relationships he has been able to build. He brought his experience, reputation and network along with him to compliment the Legendary Land Company brand.
Cody is from Marietta, Oklahoma and has also spent his entire life in the outdoors scattered across Southern Oklahoma. Whether breaking horses, sorting cattle or in the field bowhunting, all of Cody’s passions and strengths are found outside. He interned at the Noble Foundation during high school and after graduating college started Gillham Performance Horses where he trains horses for a multitude of different clients. Cody spent his college years working for several Hall of Fame horse trainers and has seen some of the finest training facilities in the business.
Cody is also an experienced cattleman, as well as passionate outdoorsman. He has taken multiple Cy Curtis Record Book deer, as well as one Boone and Crocket. His diverse and extensive background helped him find quick success in the real estate industry where he has primarily focused on horse and cattle ranches. Unlike most, Cody truly understands the wants and needs of a selective horse ranch buyer, as well as the intricacies of a working horse operation. During his time in the horse business he has been able to see how these facilities are built and operated, which has given him an innate ability to match a buyer with the right property, whether Breeder, Trainer or Non Pro.
Cody and his wife Wendy reside on their horse ranch in Love County and have two beautiful children, Brody and Hadley.
