Welcome to the home of C4 Land Partners! We pride ourselves in fast, friendly, and professional deals that leave all parties satisfied. Reach out if you have any questions, or if you would like to work with C4 Land Partners to buy or sell your land.


C4 Land Partners is a land investment company run by a mother-daughter team based out of southwestern Colorado. We are passionate about the freedom land ownership provides, and are humbled to have the opportunity to help others find the perfect properties.

Mackie Cates

Mackie is a part-owner of C4 Land Partners and serves as a Sales Partner for the company. She has her B.S. in Psychology and her passion is connecting clients with land that suits their needs and will help them fulfill their dreams.

Mackie has worked with a broad range of businesses, from farmers markets to Bernedoodle breeders, and has even spent time in the non-profit sector. Her experience working in a Montana homeless shelter is part of why C4 Land Partners donates 5% of every sale to charity.

When she isn’t on the phone with clients or listing vacant land, Mackie can be found in the mountains with her black labs, Indie and Valkyrie, or in the field working on her family’s ranch.

Gretchen Chapman Cates

Gretchen is a part-owner and an Acquisitions Partner here at C4 Land Partners. She is passionate about helping land owners part with unwanted land in order to make room for whatever matters most to them.

Gretchen has her B.S. in Chemistry and Biology and has a passion for learning that continues to serve her well. She has 4 amazing children and runs the day-to-day operations of Cedar Springs Ranch, in addition to her role at C4 Land Partners. Gretchen has a knack for turning every stranger into a friend and is the cheerful voice you hear on the other end of most phone calls.

When she isn’t searching for our latest acquisition, Gretchen can be spotted hiking, camping, and enjoying the beautiful mountains of southwestern Colorado.

What We Do

C4 Land Partners is a part of an experienced group of land investors who run successful enterprises around the world. Our business is purchasing unwanted or unused land, and then selling these hidden gems to our eager buyers.

We believe that land ownership is an invaluable tool for building wealth and investing in your future. We are passionate about connecting people with the land and resources that suit their stages in life.

Our team here at C4 Land Partners is passionate about the work incredible non-profit organizations are doing to help people in need in our local communities and around the world. This is why we donate 5% of every sale to the charities listed below:

  • The Polaris Project: Human trafficking is a serious problem around the world and affects millions of people each year. The Polaris Project works to fight against human trafficking in the US and abroad by collecting data, providing education, and impacting policies regarding trafficking.
  • VETSolutions.org: In the United States, 16.8 veterans die from suicide every day. VETS is the leading organization focused on ending the veteran suicide epidemic and addressing traumatic brain injury (TBI) with psychedelic therapy.
  • GuardianSaga.org: Empowering youth and supporting indigenous communities worldwide
  • National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center: Indigenous women and girls in the US experience violence at far greater rates than that of the general population. The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center is fighting to end violence towards indigenous women and girls by educating their communities and providing them with the tools to advocate for themselves.
