Ekdahl Nelson Real Estate is excited to welcome Dan Byerly of Hamlin, Texas to their team of agents. Byerly comes to Ekdahl Nelson after a long career in agricultural lending, where he worked with farmers and ranchers across the Big Country. He is excited to take this next step in his career and continue to serve farmers and ranchers, and now many others through real estate.

“I love to serve others and help them accomplish their goals and dreams,” says Byerly. “I am looking forward to continuing my career based on service and relationships at Ekdahl Nelson.”

Working with others and learning what others enjoy is something Byerly is passionate about as a servant-minded individual. He sees his new role as a divine opportunity to serve others, and his passion for customer service is a great fit for Ekdahl Nelson.

“Dan is a one-of-a-kind guy,” says John Ekdahl, owner and broker of Ekdahl Nelson Real Estate. “We couldn’t have picked a better person to join our team of agents. His enthusiasm and service-oriented nature is unmatched, and we are glad to have him.”

Raised in Hamlin, Byerly attributes his upbringing for making him the person he is today. He was raised in town, but with a real cowboy father and a mother who worked in oil and gas, real estate, and crop insurance. Much of Byerly’s drive to make a place better than he found it, stems from his parents’ tireless efforts throughout his life to do the same. He says they truly are his role models.

Byerly has been an active member of the Hamlin Lions Club for over 20 years and is a past president. He has been awarded multiple awards for growth and member recruitment from his service with the Hamlin Lions Club. For the last 20 years, Byerly has also run the Hamlin Boys Club, where he works with boys in and around Hamlin. Many weekends Byerly can be found camping or hiking with the boys and teaching them good moral character along the way.

Byerly was also the creator of PlayMaker, a scholarship program and motivational event for youth and those working with youth in the Big Country. In addition to those activities, Byerly serves as a leader in his church and has served in leadership roles in the Hamlin Chamber of Commerce and Hamlin Athletic Booster Club. Byerly currently serves on the Hamlin Collegiate ISD board of trustees.

When Byerly isn’t serving the community or working, he enjoys spending time with his wife Kristi of over 29 years, and their three children. Together, they enjoy attending Texas A&M University Aggie games and Pied Piper sporting events.

“I’ve had the privilege of meeting a lot of individuals across the Big Country,” says Byerly, “and I’m looking forward to continue working with those I’ve already met, and also building new relationships with those I haven’t met yet.”
