When you have buying or selling interactions with Jim Shaeffer, you feel like you are dealing with a good neighbor. I purchased an out of state acreage, sight unseen, which could have been nerve racking. Questions go through your mind:  Is this agent going to follow through? Is the deal going to be professionally completed? Am I buying what I think I am buying? Jim cares about his reputation. He follows through. He is very knowledgeable about the parcel of land that he is selling. He actually cares about the land. He is honest. He has a great work ethic. He understands buyer and seller concerns. He treats the land as if it were his own and treats the buyer or seller as if they are family or friends or neighbors that he will see again AFTER the sale transaction is complete; after the sale is complete the buyer and seller would go out of their way to say hi to Jim and shake his hand – that is how good the buyer or seller would feel about the integrity of the transaction and their interactions with Jim. This is getting rarer in today’s society. I spent a couple of hours talking to Jim about the property and every single question I asked got an honest, knowledgeable answer. Communication with Jim is fantastic. The transaction, from start to finish, was flawless. If Jim says he will do it – he will follow through. I bought land in South Dakota and after the sale was complete, I told him "Jim if South Dakota is filled with people anywhere near your stature and character- we’re in good shape.” Well done, Jim.

Truly can’t say ‘Thank You’ enough to Jim and his team. Working with someone as knowledgeable and considerate as Jim made the whole process far more enjoyable. From start to finish, we were kept up to speed as Jim took care of everything in a timely manner. We are extremely thankful and excited for this opportunity to purchase land through Midwest Land Group. This expansion will further our family farm for generations to come.

When I found the website that specializes in farmland sales and read Jim Shaeffer's bio, I felt we would be happy with Midwest Land Group. From the day we met and discussed the family farm until we closed on the property, Jim was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly and helped us through the whole process. The informational packet and photos were very well organized and professional. He told us more than we ever knew about the farm. He did a great job getting this out to potential buyers, kept us fully informed, and was on task every step of the way. It was such a pleasure working with Jim, we would highly recommend him to anyone! Thank you Jim for everything!

After several years of consulting with Jim, we recently completed the purchase of a property that we will develop into a place where my children and grandchildren (and hopefully generations beyond) can enjoy learning about the land and improving the habitat for wildlife of all types. Jim was patient, insightful, and incredibly helpful throughout the process. He provides a unique combination of experience, expertise, and a genuine desire to help you realize your dreams. Jim will be a life-long friend and someone I recommend as a trusted agent, whether you are buying or selling land.

Courteous, polite and a professional manner. Jim Shaeffer did as he said he would. I look forward to future transactions. Good person with good work ethics!

For our recent land sale in South Dakota, I had the privilege of working with a consummate professional and all-round great guy, Jim Shaeffer.  He was extremely helpful in all aspects of the sale.  We live on the east coast and so Jim handled all facets of the sale from listing to closing.  He helped us determine market price and sold the property in a week.  We experienced some unexpected complexities during the sale and Jim helped us find a qualified attorney in the area and the issues were resolved.  The sale would never have come to fruition without Jim’s strong work ethic, dedication and positive attitude. I would highly recommend Jim for any of your real estate needs.

I can't thank Jim Shaeffer, my land agent with Midwest Land Group, enough for his honesty & efficiency in selling my property. There is no guessing or wondering what's going on with Jim. He was with me at every turn of the transaction. I have dealt with others in his business, and have never met a person as efficient as Jim. We started out as business associates and now I consider him & his wife Vonda friends. He and Midwest Land Group are the best there is.

On my recent land purchase in South Dakota, I had the privilege of working with a true professional, Jim Shaeffer.  He was extremely helpful in my search and always responsive to my questions.  Jim educated me on farm/hunting/CRP ground in southern South Dakota and spent two days driving me around looking at farmland.  The purchase of the land went very smoothly, and Jim kept me informed all the way through the process.  I’m sure I will have questions for Jim after the purchase, but I already consider Jim a good friend.  Jim is certainly a knowledgeable land agent who knows South Dakota land.  I am thoroughly satisfied with my purchase and the service Jim provided.  I could not have done better.  If I buy or sell land again in South Dakota, I know Jim is my man – I’d fight to have Jim Shaeffer represent me!
Midwest Land Group
A special "Thank You" goes out to Jim Shaeffer at Midwest Land Group. Jim assisted me in every step in the process, kept me informed of the next steps and set the right expectations throughout so there were no surprises at the end.  Jim also added a very personal touch by inviting my daughter and son to tour the land in his side-by-side. Jim is very professional and knowledgeable, and I could not have asked for a better outcome!  I see a very long-lasting friendship coming out of this purchase with the common interests and values we share.  Thanks again Jim for your help with the purchase! Midwest Land Group has definitely found the right person to represent the company, its sellers and buyers.  Thank you Jim!

I have been impressed with Midwest Land Group's marketing materials that I have been receiving, and equally impressed when our family had a chance to meet with their land broker, Jim Shaeffer. At our first meeting, Jim came well prepared. We toured the property, sat down and discussed our objectives and after his research, within a week agreed on a target price for the sale of our land. As out of state land owners, Jim made us feel comfortable with the process from start to finish. He was a pleasure to work with and was always just a call or a click away. If you are selling or buying property I would highly recommend Midwest Land Group and in particular Jim Shaeffer. He's a true professional.

A once in a lifetime story, but not a fairy tale.  It’s not every day that people have the opportunity or privilege to buy one dream come true property, let alone two. We had the chance of a lifetime and took it. Along the whole way, every step was Jim Shaeffer, our land agent! We could not have designed a greater man for the job. He is very patient, and able to explain all of the steps along the way. Working through the offer and acceptance process was extremely smooth. Jim took care of paperwork changes quickly and accurately. He went above and beyond what we would have ever expected from him. Over the past 25 years in the outdoor industry, we couldn’t have gotten paired with a better professional than Jim and Midwest Land Group. Jim was very knowledgeable about rules for restricted land use that came with our properties. He also had great suggestions for mitigation, along with knowing the resources to contact. When it comes time to ever buy again, or sell, we won’t even consider another agency, or agent.  Jim Shaeffer and Midwest Land Group is the way to go. Time is the most valuable commodity we have in the world. When it boils down to it, Midwest Land Group saved or created more of it for us in this process. That makes their company and employees priceless to us. When the day comes, Midwest Land Group will get our call.

We would like to thank Jim Shaeffer with Midwest Land Group for his assistance in selling two separate specialized hunting properties in South Dakota.  He went above the duty of a realtor by making sure certain documents were prepared, signed and presented to the correct companies for closings. We want to also thank him for offering to pick us up when we were stuck in Missouri with our truck in the shop for 17 days. Although we did not need the ride, we really appreciate the offer. He is a true gentleman, and I would highly recommend him and Midwest Land Group to anyone wanting to purchase or sell property.

After receiving several flyers from Midwest Land Group and liking what I saw I, contacted Jim Shaeffer when it was time to sell my families two properties located in Hanson County, South Dakota. Jim visited both properties several times before we even signed a listing agreement with him. Now, in this day and age, that is unheard of. Jim worked with us every step of the way. Jim put me in contact with someone to appraise the land and also a surveyor, saving me the hassle of looking on my own. He had our best interests in mind every step of the way from start to finish. If you are thinking about selling land, please contact Jim. I know you will not be disappointed.

I wanted to write this brief note to say how much I enjoyed working with Jim Shaeffer on a recent land purchase. Jim embodies everything that I look for in a property agent. He's knowledgeable: he knows the area and he knows how to facilitate the transaction. He's responsive: I had a lot of questions and he took the time to patiently explain everything to me. He's reliable: he follows up diligently on all loose ends to make things go smoothly. He's genuine: it's clear he truly enjoys helping buyers and sellers find a win/win situation that's great for everyone. Jim took all the guesswork and complication out of my land purchase. I highly recommend Jim as a land agent.

I’ve worked with Jim Shaeffer through multiple transactions as a lender. He is excellent at keeping everyone in the loop from the day of the sale to the closing. It is not an easy task to facilitate constant communication with the buyers, sellers, title company and lender, but Jim does an outstanding job. Aside from his professionalism, Jim is a friendly face at every closing and knows how to make everyone feel welcome. I highly recommend working with Jim at Midwest Land Group if you are in the market to buy or sell land!

Jim Shaeffer was great to work with when I was looking to purchase a parcel of land in South Dakota. He made the buying process go very smoothly.
Midwest Land Group
We would like to send a brief note of appreciation for the fine job that Jim Shaeffer did in helping us sell our land. We had developed the land with hunting as the primary use and wanted to market it accordingly. This land had been in our family for many years and we have a lot of fond memories of hunts with family and friends. We are happy that the new owner appears to be a hunter and conservationist that will continue to provide habitat and responsible hunting in the years to come.

Jim Shaeffer was awesome to work with when I was looking to purchase a parcel of land. He was very knowledgeable and always answered the phone whenever I had a question. He made the buying process go very smoothly. If I’m ever in the market again to buy or sell, he’s my guy. Thanks again Jim!

Working with Jim Shaeffer, with Midwest Land Group, has been a pleasure. I was the purchaser and chose not to be represented by a realtor. Jim was the seller's realtor but he answered any questions I had and always steered me in the right direction on my purchase of land here in South Dakota. I would highly recommend Jim for any future property purchases.
Midwest Land Group
We want to thank Jim Shaeffer from the bottom of our hearts for the handling of the sale of our property. From the very beginning when we first talked on the phone, to the very last step in the sale, you were very professional, knowledgeable, prompt, honest, and kind. You kept us informed on every aspect of the process, and we knew that you had our interests first and foremost in mind. You were very prompt and complete with all of the information and documentation, and we know that you spent many hours and drove many miles to take care of it all. Since you were so detailed and complete in all you did, we had very few additional questions. We are sure you did many other things that made this sale effortless for us, and for that we are grateful. We were so fortunate to have had this opportunity for you to be our land agent, and we consider you not just our agent but our friend. Thank you for the excellent work and service you provided, and for the high quality of your personal character. You are, in our opinion, one in a million.

We recently worked with Jim Shaeffer of Midwest Land Group in buying land with a 1031 land exchange that had difficult time constraints. Jim was very invested in helping us to make sure the transaction was completed on time, whether it was contacting the land lawyers, the title company or the other real estate agents. Because of his diligence to help us with our needs, and his continued persistence, we met the time deadline and all parties were very happy. Jim was professional in all his dealings with us, and we could not have been happier in working with him. We have no doubt that we will use him in the future for upcoming transactions.

Jim Shaeffer did a great job selling my property in a very professional manner with the best possible outcome I could have had. I could not of had a better experience. I would recommend Jim and Midwest Land Group to anyone.

Working with Kent was way different than working with other realtors we had in the past. He always had our best interests in mind at every turn. He took time to thoroughly look over a property showing us any concerns in the foundation, roof, etc. that may be a potential issue for us. We enjoyed working with Kent and will continue recommending him to family and friends.
Midwest Land Group
My wife and I recently used Beau Mantle as a realtor in a home sale and in a land purchase. We could not be happier. Beau was the most responsive realtor I have ever used. He was very professional and friendly. He was very fast to respond to any questions and always made sure the information he provided was accurate and easy to understand. He was understanding with us when we had seemingly simple questions. He was attentive to our needs as buyers and made sure every step of the process was timely and went as smoothly as it was supposed to. In my opinion, I will never use any other realtor besides Beau. He is highly recommended.
Midwest Land Group
I just have to say thank you. Thank you Midwest Land Group for hiring Ed and being such a great company, and thank you Ed Gramza for just being you! Midwest Land Group was the absolute best for selling my land. Ed Gramza, my agent, was phenomenal and went above and beyond to get my property sold. I highly recommend both Midwest Land Group and Ed. Selling my property was the most stress free (for me) experience I could ask for and it's because I had a very sharp minded, on top of it agent that really hustled to get the job done.

The absolute best realtor in the Creek County area! Summer is in touch with current values and gave us sound market advice which enabled a quick, worry free sale.

Midwest Land Group

We bought this property in 2018 which Summer had listed and she was our choice for selling in 2023. Her market analysis was on point, the photographs were perfect and she kept us informed well as to what she was hearing from buyers. Listing in the holiday time period was a concern, but we were under contract very quickly. Very happy with our choice of realtors!

Sean Stewart is second to none when it comes to giving 110 percent effort toward helping people achieve their dreams. He doesn't just perform a much needed service, he goes out of his way to ensure the buyer and seller get positive results. I have used Sean and Midwest Land Group for several transactions, and it has been an amazing experience every time. Thank you my friend.

Adam is great to work with! He made sure he clearly understood what we were looking for, kept a close eye on the listings, and shared any matches right away! We had to act fast in our situation and hit several hiccups along the way that Adam helped us work through. We couldn't have made it happen without his experience and dedication to his customers! He's knowledgeable, professional, and has your best interest in mind, for sure!! I would highly recommend Adam Spitz from Midwest Land Group.
