Derek was great to work with. He followed through with his promises and he delivered results. We were selling two parcels of farmland. Once we signed up with Derek, we had strong offers from the eventual buyers of each parcel within three days. Derek provided all-around top-notch service.
I just sold our farm through Midwest Land Group and would like to add this testimonial. When a farm has been in the family name for 140 years and it comes time to sell it, you want a firm and a realtor like I found at Midwest Land Group. The face of Midwest Land Group for us was land agent Derek Payne and his work for us only honored the firm. We wanted a person of integrity, experience and knowledge and we were not disappointed. Derek mentored me through the process always with the concern that we do things right and in proper order. I felt like we worked as partners with his focus on our best interests. His communication was first class. No matter when I wrote or texted his answers were seldom not immediate. The group produced an outstanding brochure of high quality to the public. From my first phone call to the closing it has been an excellent experience of professionalism. I highly recommend Midwest Land Group to anyone seeking to sell their land. You will be in good hands!
Derek Payne made the process of selling our farm as easy as possible. He was always available to answer our calls with questions or concerns. He was patient, honest and went over and above to make sure we were comfortable with all decisions and to help us in every way possible. Thank you Derek!
My wife and I are extremely pleased with Derek Payne's level of professionalism. He has made the process of selling our property very enjoyable. He communicates frequently and clearly. He established realistic expectations for the valuation of our property and the anticipated timelines for each step of the process. We highly recommend Derek for your real estate needs. We look forward to working with him in the future.
We cannot thank Derek enough for the work he did for us selling our Clay County property. It was a major project that involved so much. From his initiative figuring out the planning and zoning process, to all the time he spent on the farm making things happen, he represents the best in his profession. Derek's work exceeded our expectations, and we admire his diligence and work ethic. Thank you for not only selling our farm, but for putting so much time back in our day by managing the sales process so well. Once we turned the farm over to him, it was smooth sailing thanks to all of the hours he spent taking care of business.
What an excellent experience we had, using Derek Payne as our buying agent for our recent land acquisition. He was extremely helpful in our search, always responsive to our questions and a very supportive team player. And this was all prior to our purchase! He has been a tremendous resource after our purchase as well, always providing us with solid referrals for the items we needed. We have appreciated his outstanding service and would recommend him very highly in your real estate activities.
Derek is an outstanding agent to work with! He is definitely the right choice if you are looking for your dream property. He is very knowledgable of the area and will work hard to find you exactly what you're looking for. He found it for us! After showing us the property, he was so well prepared that we were even able to sign all the paperwork right there in his truck! He regularly made us aware of new information, and was always extremely responsive to any and all questions we had. We are absolutely certain that Derek was the perfect choice to help our dreams come true!
Derek is a very knowledgeable, very professional agent to work with. One of the most important attributes when dealing with real estate transactions (especially in this competitive market) is good communication, and Derek always had the information and responses we needed in a very timely manner, day or night. Our buying experience was excellent.
Derek Payne is a top notch agent in his field. He made the process of selling my land simple and seamless. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in selling their ranch, farm or land. I guarantee no one will work harder for you!
Our land agent, Derek Payne, was the absolute best agent! He answered his phone every single time we called him. He pointed out issues with our contract and looked into those issues for us. He did his job like a pro, and we appreciated it all. He then showed up at my front door with an awesome thank you gift for us. Thank you Derek!
I want to write a note of sincere thanks to Derek Payne and Midwest Land Group on our recent property sale. We could not have asked for a better agent than Derek to take care of our needs. You would not have known if we were selling 10 acres or 10,000 acres by the way we were treated.
Derek communicated with us consistently every step of the way. He worked very hard for us and he sold our property in such a short time frame it was amazing! If you are serious about selling acreage, I whole heartedly recommend Midwest Land Group, they are absolutely top of the line. If you want to have a stress free sale with someone who treats you like you matter and actually cares about you as a customer I would strongly suggest requesting Derek Payne as your agent.
My wife and I used Derek Payne, Land Agent with Midwest Land Group when selling our home and 40 acres. Derek did an outstanding job representing us and our property! He was very professional, transparent and always did what he said he would do. Transparency and keeping in contact with us was a big deal to us, and any questions or advice we needed, he helped immediately. A job well done!
I had been looking for my dream farm for over 3 years. I cannot tell you how many hours I had spent searching the Internet for that perfect place. And then late one night, on yet another search, I came across the most amazing photos of my dream farm! All the factual information fit my tick marks but it was the incredible photographs that prompted me to call the listing agent, Derek Payne. The next day, I drove 6 hours to meet Derek at the property and it was everything he said it would be! Derek went out of his way to get answers to my most unusual questions. During the purchase process, Derek was always available, only a text away. On several occasions he made the drive from his office out to the farm to measure something for me, and that was no short drive! :)
I have only been on my dream farm for 6 months but I could not be happier! And to think it all started with a photograph that stopped me in my tracks and changed my life. If you really want to sell your property, consider Derek Payne. He will present you in the best possible light, a powerful magnet to attract the target buyer!
Melissa and I would like to thank Derek again for his work selling our Keytesville property. The way he handled the complexity of the title issues and the patience he displayed while we worked through the challenges together was appreciated. His energy and professionalism is notable. I’d recommend him, without hesitation, to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.
Thanks again. I look forward to working with Derek in the future.
Derek Payne made the process of purchasing from out of state as seamless as possible. He had excellent communication, stayed on top of all the paperwork, and helped us complete the entire process in about 30 days. Above all, he handled the process with upmost integrity which made a stressful process much easier. Thanks Derek!
After trying to work with several real estate agents, we are glad to have worked with Derek. We had agents not return calls, say they couldn't help us, or would call when acreage became available. One agent only showed us acreage with existing houses, and refused to assist in locating anything else. Another agent said he would be happy to show us any property when WE found it.
We saw a Midwest Land Group sign posted in front of a property we were assessing. After calling the telephone number for the listing agent, Derek called us the next day. Although that property did not work for us, Derek did not hesitate to forward multiple e-mails of available acreages listed by either MLG or other agencies. Something none of the other agents did. We requested through Derek more information regarding a larger acreage, specifically the sellers' willingness to divide the land. Throughout all transactions with the sellers' agent, Derek kept us apprised by both telephone and e-mail. Derek was always available to work around our schedule to view the land or deliver any necessary paperwork. Derek was prompt in answering any and all questions we had, and served as an intermediary between the survey company and fence installers. We were very impressed that Derek went to the property on a rainy day to meet with the fencing crew.
After spending a year looking for acreage, we regret we didn't find Derek sooner. We will definitely refer Derek to anyone we know who is in search of land.
Derek Payne is the consummate professional. I needed to sub-divide my farm to sell the homestead to a long-time friend and offer the remaining land for row crops. Derek managed the entire process including surveys, titles and sales process. I travel extensively, live in Colorado and the farm is in Missouri. It took only one trip to the farm to explain my wishes, Derek handled the rest, including necessary leg work to allow me to close on both sales as an absentee seller. I highly recommend Midwest Land Group, and in particular Derek Payne.
As part of my business, I work with realtors all the time. Justin Swast is the best realtor I have worked with - he is extremely knowledgeable about his market and is also a great communicator. He has gone above and beyond for me in all our listings and I could not recommend him enough.
I used Jordan to purchase a 200 acre tillable farm and I couldn’t be happier with the transaction. From the first phone call Jordan was friendly, informative, and quickly got me all the information I needed to submit an offer. After closing, Jordan followed up several times to make sure I was happy and see if there was anything else he could do to help me out. After a few conversations with Jordan, I can tell he is a true expert in the land market and I would not hesitate to use him to buy or sell another piece of land.
We have known Jordan for years and he has always held a passion for farming, hunting, and knowing people. When you talk to Jordan he makes people feel like they belong and he is here to help them. We had no question in our mind that Jordan would be the one to sell our home for us, as well as any future land or real estate needs we have in the future. Jordan sent daily texts or phone calls to check in on us and let us know how things were going. I truly believe that our house would not have sold as fast without Jordan. Jordan knows land but more than that he knows how people want to be treated! I highly recommend him to anyone with real estate needs.
This is a HUGE shout-out to Karl Ward with Midwest Land Group. It was an overwhelming and emotional experience having to sell our first home and property. Karl exceeded our expectations from a realtor. From start to finish he had the seller's interest in mind, as well as the buyers. He wasn’t just looking to make a sale, he was genuinely looking to help us find the right buyers who would cherish the house and property as we did. He helped the buyers find the house and property they wanted. I appreciated the time he took to get to know us, and our house, and came with his side-by-side to get familiar with the property so he could show potential buyers the land too. Everything went smoothly with so many details, the closing and sale….Karl was always there to answer any questions and really helped make a difficult transition for us easier. We’ve dealt with other realtors and there’s no comparison to our great experience with Midwest Land Group. We are thankful for Karl’s passion and heart for people and land/homes. Highly recommend!!
Drew made everything go as smoothly as possible! Drew was very good at communicating with us about what we needed to do on our end and walked us through if we didn’t really know what to do. He helped us sell our land very quickly and with very little stress! I would definitely recommend others to use Midwest Land Group to sell or buy land!
My wife and I had a great experience working with Drew Yarkosky and Midwest Land Group during our recent land purchase. Drew was extremely professional, personable, prompt in answering any of our questions, and just excellent to work with throughout the process. Drew is top notch and Midwest Land Group is fortunate to have him on their team!
It was a pleasure working with Ethan in helping sell our land. He was quick to respond to questions, provided good data for price discovery, and helped map out a game plan that took my unique situation into account. If you work with Ethan, you can expect high-quality photos of the property, ample signage, and impressive marketing materials. He doesn’t take shortcuts and puts real time and effort into his work. For us, that resulted in our land being sold within a week near asking price! If you need help selling a property, call Ethan.
About a year ago we started our journey looking for recreational land near the National Forest. We spoke with many agents in different areas from various groups, some were helpful and others not so much. One weekend we spent a day looking at a list of lands we had and decided to check on one that we had previously inquired about but didn't get much help from a different land group. We got a hold of Jason Stokes with Midwest Land Group and he was immediately willing to help us.
To make a long story short, we ultimately bought that piece of land. Jason Stokes was patient with me, extremely helpful and just a nice guy every single time we talked. He is the perfect guy to be selling recreational or hunting land. He even took the reigns on getting digital signatures on some USDA paperwork that I didn't even ask him to handle. That was my responsibility but he saw an opportunity to help and just did it.
Every question I had he answered or said honestly "I don't know the answer but I'll do my best to find out", and I had a lot of questions. I couldn't have asked to deal with a more patient, helpful and nice agent.
Summer was amazing in my recent purchase of my first home and was so good to step me through the process. She was always there to answer my questions and help me out. I will definitely be recommending her to all my friends and family who are in need of a realtor. Thank you very much Summer!!
Thank you to Jordan Petersen for his work in selling our property. We enjoyed working with Jordan and he really did go over the top to get everything done for us!
