Code of the West

James P. Owen, author and CEO of The Center for Cowboy Ethics and Leadership, penned the book Cowboy Ethics: What Wall Street Can Learn from The Code of the West. The ten simple principles listed in the book are based upon the unwritten code that cowboys have lived by for years; a code that Owen seeks to apply to modern life.

At Western United Realty, we believe that this code is applicable to the way people live and do business today. We strive to follow these simple principles in every aspect of our business to ensure that the buyers, sellers, and other brokers we work with can rely on Western United.
