"Thanks to you and the Farmers National Company team for managing this sale so thoroughly. The family appreciates all the work FNC has done over the years to make this absentee owner situation run so well. My recollection is that the family has owned this parcel since about 1955, and the relationship with FNC goes back at least 15 to 20 years." B. Heekin
I worked with new management client to update older multi-year cash rent leases. Changed two of the farms to flexible cash rents, one to a bushel lease and negotiated out of multi-year cash rent lease while moving to an upfront payment. The end result was significantly enhanced income and written one year leases for the owner while retaining the same tenants.
With the uncertainly of what changes congress might make in the capital gains laws going into 2013, I worked with landowner at the close of 2012 to market his farm properties and close before the December 31, 2012, deadline. We split the farm into three parcels to meet buyer demand and developed some competitive interest in the properties to meet the owner’s expectations. It took some quick work and coordination with surveyors, title companies, and the closing agent to meet the deadline on time.
