Responsibilities at FNC:
I primarily work with absentee landowners to meet and accomplish their goals and objectives for their farm asset. Generally speaking this includes maximizing their farm income while also giving them a peace of mind that they have someone who is representing them and looking out for their best interest.
I really enjoy working with my clients to make improvements on their farms. Some of these include major drainage/pattern tiling, fertility, and overall appearance improvements that not only make the farm more profitable but also more valuable long term.
Thorough research and due diligence within the local market. The overall knowledge of 100,000 + FNC managed acres in Indiana gives me confidence in fair market cash rental rates as well as overall land values.
Real Estate Sales:
List, market, and sell agricultural real estate in Indiana and Illinois.
I constantly keep abreast of all recent real estate activity on the open market as well as attend numerous auctions and research the competition to reassure and validate current farm land values. I take pride in and continue to strive to be the go to guy for real estate not only locally but also in the surrounding areas.
I have successfully assisted both buyers and sellers of farm land real estate throughout most parts of Indiana and Illinois. Whether you are looking to purchase a farm or interested in selling your farm, I’m your man. I have been fortunate to develop many relationships and an extensive network within the ag industry that has allowed me to serve my clients needs to the fullest. You can have confidence that I will help you accomplish your goals.

"You are my hero. I really can't thank you enough for pulling us through this. Now I can have some sense of a sigh of relief. I thank you for your expertise, your thoroughness, your creative problem-solving, for talking with a blue million people about this property, for being so kind and understanding of our situation and for sticking with it until we got a resolution. On behalf of our family and myself, many, many thanks. You are worth a million." -- J Granger
"The Halstead family is a client of Farmers National and its predecessors and has been for decades. We have enjoyed a long and beneficial relationship as they've managed our farm and its various challenges and opportunities. Together with their help and a land-expert attorney, we completed negotiations with a power company for lease. The complex agreement was a huge success from our point of view. We were very pleased with Kyle's performance and hands-on involvement. In addition, as our farm manager, he is comprehensive, attentive to details, and a pleasure to work with. His business acumen is outstanding and we know he will be of great value to us and FNC in the future." -- CW Halstead
"Your reports are excellent! I felt this way with your spring report, but I neglected to tell you. You are thorough and comprehensive answering any potential questions even before they arise. Well done! Although the excessive rain has apparently affected this year’s crops, we are optimistic that your predictions will eventuate." -- Bill & Martha H.
"The regular written updates and photos are extremely useful. Kyle makes me feel as if I've walked the land myself!" -- E Steuterman
I see you received the AFM accreditation. Congratulations! We’re glad you’re on our team. - J. Beeler
