Why Choose Us

Our Promise

It is true, the essence of our team is Intelligent, Humble, Trustworthy, and Passionate about all things land.  We absolutely love what we do!  Land transactions are complex, no two are alike, and we have run into our fair share of difficult situations.  Yet, the stress that one might perceive during these circumstances, rarely clouds our direction.  I contribute our success to the one principle we follow as the underlying guide to every decision we make. Simply put, we evaluate everything we do with the question:  What is best for our clients?

We respect the trust given us to act as liaison between our clients and interested parties, title companies, surveyors, appraisers, and lenders.  From the agents we hire to the negotiation advice we give, our clients’ best interest is at the heart of everything we do.

Site Visit

Our agents are knowledgeable in all facets of rural land and understand the importance of identifying both the seen and unseen value of your property.  Beyond common utilities and infrastructure, our agents will evaluate the current and potential land uses, identify habitat types, unique features, and income generating opportunities.

Armed with intimate knowledge of your property, we will leverage our robust marketing platforms to reach the right potential buyer.

Accurate Pricing

Determining an accurate list price is paramount to achieving the end goal of selling your property in timely fashion for the most amount of money.  In order to determine that list price our team will conduct a comprehensive market analysis by examining comparable sales data from multiple sources, market trends in the area, and other similar properties available on the market.  When comparing sold properties our experts go well beyond the price per acre.  We dig deep to determine values of vertical improvements, ranch infrastructure, and other factors that affect the sold price.

Getting the price right the first time is a key factor to having a smooth transaction and avoiding a long sales cycle.

Quality Listings

Professional Photography - We use the best photographers in this business to ensure your property shines.  Using both aerial and ground video and photography we go above and beyond to capture and highlight your property.

Detailed Property Descriptions - Our Agents are experts in rural property.  The time they spend getting to know your property translates directly into the property descriptions they write.  Your property description will answer the most common questions while creatively describing the best features of your land.
