MY MEMBERSHIP IN THE REALTORS® LAND INSTITUTE AND MY ADVANCED ALC CERTIFICATION HAVE ENHANCED MY KNOWLEDGE OF ALL ASPECTS OF RURAL REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE. BECOMING AN ALC AND BEING A FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF THE TEXAS LAND BROKER NETWORK HAS GIVEN ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPLETE SEVERAL LARGE RANCH

TRANSACTIONS DURING THE PAST FEW YEARS.

OUR VALUE PROPOSITION American Farm + Ranch is a team of

highly successful marketing and land specialists whose sales rank in the Top 10 nationally. We continue to enjoy exceptional growth due to the quality of

service and the value we create for buyers and sellers of rural real estate. The diversity of experience and

expertise of AFR’s Member

Brokers is unmatched.

In fact, many of our Member Brokers hold the esteemed Accredited Land Consultant

(ALC) designation, which is the

highest accreditation

for the land professional. We consistently achieve strong

and measured results by working with qualified buyers and bringing the best rural properties to market. Our broker network, leadership within industry organizations and our marketing finesse

complement our integrity,

honesty and thoroughness in representing buyers and sellers of

fine rural real estate.


OUR TRACK RECORD Owners of fine rural real estate recognize the AFR brand as the

industry leader. We list and sell land and all that it comes with. Our members have spent their lives and careers in and around rural real

estate and their experience

and knowledge of the market

is only surpassed by their stellar

reputation of trust and integrity.   We listen to clients and develop a custom program tailored to their needs, using our proven and

proprietary resources to find a

qualified buyer or find the ideal property. Our Member Brokers include past National and State Presidents,

Board Members and leaders of the

Realtors Land Institute (RLI) as well as other leading industry and conservation organizations.

RLI is part of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and is the professional education and

networking organization of land brokers to ensure the highest

qualifications of its members.

LAND TRANSACTIONS ARE

INCREASINGLY BECOMING MORE COMPLEX DUE TO A NUMBER OF FACTORS INCLUDING CHANGES IN WATER AND MINERAL RIGHTS, ENVIRONMENTAL AND EASEMENT CONSIDERATIONS AND GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS. RLI, MORE THAN ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION, PROVIDES ITS MEMBERS EDUCATIONAL AND NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES TO GAIN AND SHARE KNOWLEDGE

WITH INDUSTRY LEADERS. —George Clift, Member Broker

and 2014 RLI Institute National President with Clift Land Brokers, Texas

PROVEN PROCESSES AND MEASURED RESULTS The American Farm + Ranch marketing process is based upon years of research, analysis, and refinement. We produce measured results based on a

combination of leveraging the reach of our Member Broker network, exclusive

relationships to reach accredited buyers and motivated sellers,

and traditional marketing approaches. Our website offers a clean and refined approach to presenting high-resolution photography, mapping

and video presentations for each property and its broker representative. The customized marketing program for each property starts with a clean

slate. Your Member Broker will tailor a campaign appropriate for each listing that capitalizes on the American Farm + Ranch marketing resources. American Farm + Ranch utilizes all appropriate media resources to optimize the marketing of

properties for sale and to identify properties to buy. These resources

include print, website and other online advertising, SEO, social media, email

broadcasts, video placement, mapping, events and trade shows, and mining the

American Farm + Ranch database of buyers and sellers for appropriate leads. To sell premium-quality rural real estate, your broker must have the

depth of resources to reach an appropriate audience with interests

matching your property’s characteristics. AFR has marketing partnerships with industry partners allowing our Member Brokers to reach the clients of leading outdoor-oriented companies. As the “world becomes smaller” our marketing process capitalizes on the fact that many high-demographic consumers have international interests. While New York, Texas, California and Florida are influential markets, the

entire world has qualified investors eager to see premium properties. From China, Japan, Germany, France, Mexico, and Brazil our marketing system resources include reaching an exclusive international audience of thousands of active investors. In fact, American Farm + Ranch listings are presented on a

private international broker-only network reaching over 7,000

high demographic brokers in 60 countries and 19 languages.


MORE THAN LAND Auctions

The decision to auction property requires specific

knowledge and strategic analysis to evaluate whether or not bringing the property to auction is the best option for the seller. There are circumstances and properties that benefit from the finite timeline of the competitive auction process, and a correctly coordinated auction can be greatly beneficial for the seller. Our Member Broker network has

extensive auction experience and we advise and guide sellers through the strategic evaluation process. AFR has internal

auction capabilities as well as

affiliations with all reputable national auction organizations.

Financing and Taxes Whether you are new to the rural lifestyle or expanding your farming or ranching holdings, the American Farm + Ranch Member Broker team has the

experience and resources to help buyers

finance their dreams. We guide and assist buyers throughout the entire process and we work with

direct lenders, farm credit associations and banks who

specialize in the rural and agricultural markets. The AFR network of CPA’s, investment and legal professionals are here to help you structure

tax-favorable transactions including tax deferral and estate planning strategies to maximize your financial goals.

Insurance Rural properties offer fabulous recreational and investment opportunities but many of these properties have unique and specialized insurance needs. Our Member Brokers have years of

experience with these matters and we will find you the insurance carrier and agent that has the

knowledge and expertise to properly insure your farm, ranch and recreational assets and manage the related liability exposure.

Farm + Ranch Management We understand that every rural landowner has different needs and objectives. Whether your focus is conservation or return on investment, the AFR team is here to assist you. With direct and

preferential affiliations to proven ranch managers of over 600,000 acres, we can assist with any situation requiring extensive management and operating resources, as well as be a valuable resource for the less intensive needs of recreationally-oriented properties.
