Cape Stripling, being a 5th generation Fort Worth native, has roots deep in the foundation of the city. In 1874, W.C. Stripling Department Store relocated from Bowie, Texas to what is now downtown Fort Worth. This much loved department store was well known to Fort Worth’s oldest residents. In 1927 W.C. Stripling High School [which later became W.C. Stripling Middle School] was founded, and named after Mr. Stripling for funding the landscaping for the school. The school still carries his name.
In the 1870s, Cape’s great-great grandfather, R.M. Clayton, began ranching in Borden County, Texas, where his family continues to own and operate ranches.
After graduating from Arlington Heights High School in 2010, Cape moved to Gunnison, Colorado to continue his education at Western State College of Colorado. While attending school in Colorado, Cape took multiple wilderness survival and avalanche safety classes to become a wilderness guide. This love for the outdoors is what attracted Cape to his niche in real estate. With a focus on petroleum land services and entrepreneurship, Cape moved back to Texas in 2012 to work with his father, W.C. Stripling IV as a Landman in his law office in Fort Worth.
In 2015, he obtained his real estate license and began his career focusing on ranch land, hunting leases, and recreational properties throughout Texas. Having spent much of his life on his family’s country place in northwest Parker County, Texas, and possessing an oil and gas background, Cape makes a great resource for mineral questions and title discrepancies.
When Cape is not working on real estate, he is outside working on personal projects, enjoying many of Texas’s wonderful recreational activities like hunting, fishing, and off-roading. He is also an avid snowboarder and skier. As a dual citizen of the United States and Canada, Cape has traveled extensively throughout both countries. Cape has been on safari in Africa, and dove hunted in Argentina. He has also traveled to Mexico and Scotland, and has visited his relatives in Ireland.... Less
