Client Comment(s):
"We would like to recommend Farmers National Company and Tom Jass after making a very hard decision to sell our farm land after 30 years. We were able to get in touch with them through a simple phone call and the process from beginning to end was very easy. There came a time when we needed to sell our farm land that we had owned for 30 years. Being that we live in California and our land was in Colton, South Dakota, we had no idea on how to go about selling the land and where to begin. We made a phone call to Farmers National Company and spoke to a very pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional gentleman named Tom Jass. Tom was very helpful, straightforward, and gave us some options to think about. Tom told us that for us it would probably be best if we put the farm up for sell though an auction. Tom never pushed us and was always very helpful whenever we called for a question. After feeling confident, we decided to put the farm up for auction with Tom. He made the process very easy for us and it turned out very good. We were very pleased how everything went so smoothly and quickly considering we communicated through phone and email only. The only regret we have is we weren't able to thank Tom in person for all his hard work. We would highly recommend Farmers National if you need help selling or renting land."
-- Sincerely Walter and Irene Kolman

"You, in a very professional manner, provided us with options and methodologies of sale. Further, you suggested avenues, such as positioning housing density with the County to assist in enhancing value. You were very thorough in providing us with opinions of value. When we mutually made a decision, you initiated and monitored the agreed upon plan. As a representative of the family, I must tell you that it made my decision making and sharing of information with my siblings relatively easy. I have been active in the real estate and development industry for several decades.It is my opinion, which is shared by my siblings, that you managed one of the most seamless transactions that I have been involved in for years. Your steady conduct and approach was a comfort to all of us."

Comments received from Client Satoshi Nagano:
"I am very grateful to have you as our farm manager for such a long time as you have such high level of business management skills, professionalism, experience and knowledge. I manage several teams in which many of the members have PhD; however, I would rather like to count on you to take care of my daily business, not to mention our farming business that are very unfamiliar territory for me."

"Just a brief note of gratitude for ALL you have done for our family these many years. You have been fantastic in every respect, and we are so grateful. I'm also so pleased that we got to meet you, even briefly, a couple of summers ago on our drive through the area. We send you our best wishes for a wonderful rest of the season." -- J Dunham

"Thank you for the perspective and advice. With a FNC Farm Manager taking care of things, one doesn't need to know about farming. Just where to sign the annual rent check. Farm land is a good balance in a portfolio." -- P. Grassl
