"Rick was always very professional and very good at educating us in the process of selling our mother's land. He outlined every option we had when it came to selling the land along with the pros and cons of each. During the process, he kept us updated with the progress and any new developments that happened. Rick is very professional and easy to work with…we would definitely use him again to sell land." E. Anderson
"We can't thank you enough for your help, in selling our farms. On January 30th I closed on another piece of real estate. The negotiations on that piece started in June of 2018 and went until Jan. 19. As seller, we and the buyer agreed on the terms early in June, but it took 7 months for the attorneys and the City to work out the details. You did what you said. and said what you were going to do. Very professional, and we thank you again. Farmers National, has been great to work with and they should be very glad they have a man like you working for them."
