Auction Client comments:
"I would like to thank you, your staff and Farmers National Company for the professional service provided in the successful auction sale of ### acres in Nebraska. Living in Florida and faced with the task of selling my Mother-in-laws estate’s Nebraska farm looked like a difficult process. As you know, Farmers National Company accomplished the task without me having to leave my home! Throughout the transaction, I maintained complete confidence that we would receive full market price for the farm, thanks to my frequent communications with your local Nebraska Farm & Ranch Asset Manager, Blake Florell. Blake had complete knowledge of local market conditions, personally checked out the property, contacted the numerous local people involved in the sale and always provided me with frequent updates and advice. Blake’s outstanding service was well beyond my expectations."

Private treaty client comments:
"Your agent, Mr. Blake Florell, did an outstanding job of offering the property for sale and completing the necessary tasks to complete the sale.

Mr. Florell is a very personable and capable young professional. It is my opinion that he will do well for many years to come representing Farmers National. Thank you for his service to us."
