Invest in Land

Invest in land; not only with your money,
but with your spirit as well.
For then conservation will become a selfish motive,
and selfish motives create legacies,
and legacies are treasured by future generations.

With this one decision you establish both an endowment,
as well as a heritage.

Our Story

Farms & Estates Realty evolved from Roy and Rosa’s long search for their personal farm within the western Union County community. Roy has had his broker’s license for 40 years, originally as a supplement to his construction firm, then purchasing properties as investments, and now as broker in charge of Farms & Estates. Roy and Rosa enjoyed their farm search, but realized that there was such a need for a specialty realty company who dealt with land, farms, estates, and who knew the area well. Roy decided to combine his knowledge and expertise and share this information with others and Farms & Estates Realty was established.

Farms & Estates Philosophy

We take a corporate approach to serving our clients and bring the collective experience of each of our agents to the table when it comes to serving you.

Our brokers have a wide range of specialized experience including residential, light commercial, farmland, timberland, equestrian estates, agricultural farms, and raw land for investment or residential development.

One of our firm’s unique specialties is the planning and development of large-tract, love of the outdoors communities. With thoughtful conversion of large acreage farms into smaller more affordable tracts, our sellers’ land value is maximized, while our buyers benefit by being able to acquire a manageable sized farm tract in the protective environment of a community.
