Greg Alker moved to the Hollister Ranch in 1972, working for two of the first owners, Penny Brody and James Aurness.
Because of his strong work ethic, he went on to work on over 70 different parcels, in a range of construction capacities. Having personally labored on over half of the parcels at the Hollister Ranch, Greg came to know the property inside and out. He eventually went on to build a professional career in real estate, something that came surprisingly easy to him due to his impeccable knowledge of the Ranch itself. Now, with nearly 50 years of Ranch life experience, there is little he hasn’t seen or done.
Since first arriving at the Ranch, Greg married and had three boys with his wife, Ruth – all of whom were born and raised on the Hollister Ranch. He says, “It has been an amazing journey to have raised the boys here. And now to see the grandchildren come and experience the Ranch just as the boys did is a treasure we have been blessed to be able to pass on.”
