As the Sun Sets on 2018…
As 2018 comes to a close, it is time for reflection of the past year and to look forward to the goals we have set for 2019. 2018 was a big change for us. Brenda gave up her 15 year partnership with the other owners of Buy A Farm and then Brad and Brenda joined Keller Williams Marquee. It was a successful move as 2018 brought the Property Peddler Auction and Real Estate Group to life and our new website was born: PropertyPeddler.com.

These memories are a double-edged sword for those of us in the rural real estate business. Selling the family farm can get sticky, emotional and hard. Arguments arise, and people will often find themselves in what feels like a battle both within themselves and with others. Often times when selling land, they are selling something that has been in the family for quite some time and they have only one shot to make this the best sale possible for their family’s sake. When making this decision, it is important to choose the right agent or auctioneer to help the family through this process.
