Client Comment(s):
"I have appreciated working with Jim Franzen on the sale of the Pocahontas County farm, as well as the management and negotiation of the cash rent on the Palo Alto farm. Jim has been (and will continue to be) a pleasure to work with. His professionalism is outstanding. Jim has fielded countless emails, phone calls, and questions from me with courtesy, patience, and a can-do attitude. He is unfailingly prompt in responding to my questions, and going over with me the details of procedures, requirements, and expectations. He has gone above and beyond in servicing our accounts, and I am most grateful and impressed. Jim Franzen is a credit to Farmers National, and I look forward to continuing to work with him."
