For this land owner, finding a real estate agent to represent them was a no-brainer. Roger and Kelvin grew up farming together. While Roger stuck with farming, Kelvin took his love of the land into commercial sales. Roger and Sue knew that Kelvin had the expertise and integrity to get them the best price for their choice piece of land.

The land, split into two parcels of 37-38 acres each, was positioned near the airport. The land was currently being leased by a farmer and was active, high quality farm land. Knowing, however, that farm land would be less desirable than development land near the airport, he advised the seller to auction the land using Dave Webb, an auctioneer out of Louisburg.

The buyers turned out to be a couple who were also long-time friends of Kelvin. They attended the auction in search of farm land, and even though Kelvin was representing the seller on the auction, they knew they could trust his advice as a friend. Kelvin talked to them about the farm industry and helped them weigh the opportunities vs. challenges. Kelvin helped to make them feel more comfortable with what it takes to be a farm land owner and landlord.

With the buyer’s wife’s birthday just around the corner, the couple bought the land at auction that night and, cash buyer, closing in 30 days. The sale price was comfortable for both the buyer and the seller, which made for an easy, by-the-book transaction.

The buyer says ...

“I’ve known Kelvin both professionally and personally for almost two decades, and there is no one I would rather have representing my interests in a real estate transaction. He is honest, ethical, and patient, and is willing to answer the most elementary question or work through the most complicated problem. He is always my first call whenever I need real estate services.”
