9 Reasons to pick the best farmland company
Professionalism in selling farmland is to work with the family that we represent to do exactly what our mission statement says. "Marketing your assets to the largest audience yeilding you the most successful outcome" to do that there is a whole lot of listening to the customer and advising along the way.
Because we specialize in agricultural assets we bring resources to the table that other auctioneers can not from our partnerships and affiliation with professional organizations like the Realtors Land Institute, different auctioneers associations or even other associations that represent farmers and producers like the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association. Our affiliation with attorneys, closing companies, lending institutions across Iowa that specialize in agriculture are unique resources that can help you achieve the best results. Our network of agents and auctioneers across the Midwest reach our to these people on a regular basis and our good relationships throughout the industry provide a distinct benefit to you.
We have worked hard to keep our team at the top. Every member of our team is involved in agriculture. We want to make sure that our team stays small but mighty. We do not want you to be a number when selling your farmland. We want to tell your family story. Our team works every day, staying current with every bit of training available and hold the highest designations available in our industry. It takes more than one person to sell a farm.
It would not surprise you that the 80/20 rule is at work in the auction industry. 80% of the auctions are done by 20% of auction companies. A stark reality of our industry is that the vast majority of auctioneers are hobby level auctioneers that conduction 1-5 auctions per year. Auction companies in Iowa that conduct auctions on a weekly or even result basis of any kind are very few. Our company is typically booked out 2 months on auctions which gives our crew continuous experience and whats important is that people trust their auctions to us over and over again. The majority of our consignment customers across the state are repeat customers every auction because they know we have the experience to do the job right and because they have had good experiences selling their assets with us.
Some auctioneers can overstate the power of their marketing system and it can be confusing and hard to compare apples to apples. We have been recognized with multiple national marketing awards for our advertising products. DreamDirt has the most comprehensive marketing system in the state and would be among the top auction companies in the Midwest. In fact our marketing system is so vast its difficult to describe and fully explain because there are so many working parts that work to compliment each other. Our system was developed with the best practices gleaned from hundreds of millions of dollars in sold ag assets. We have incorporated the most cutting edge technology and buyer engagement that you can find in our industry and continue to use the most effective offline analog type advertising. Newspapers, signs, fliers, mailers, radio and the likes have provided solid results but they only cover a certain segment of our demographic. To provide the most complete exposure for you, we leave no stone unturned. We can get your listing in front of the right buyers fast!
