|Description:||Driving Force of DairyRealty.com
Good times or bad times, DairyRealty.com has been the driving force in $140,000,000 worth of dairy farm sales.
Mission statement, “To Bring Dairy Buyers and Sellers Together; State, Nation and World Wide”.
This group of agriculture realtors work together in satisfying the needs of their buying or selling clients. Many clients fly in from around the nation or from around the world. Many more drive hundreds of miles to view properties. The company always tries to inform the client before they start their travel what type of dairy properties they are going to see. Good, Bad or Ugly they want no surprises when the client visits the farm. The only reason for viewing the farm is to confirm what they have been told. The goal is to have the client surprised in a positive way. Another goal is to have a seamless transaction that closes on time.
Business and financial management plans are put together and then bound into an attractive booklet. This booklet contains cash flows, cattle needs, equipment needs, moving and starts up costs and projections, etc. It is well thought out for presentation to the bank. If a foreign buyer is involved, then the firm helps with visa requirements or EB5 regulations.
This realty group is licensed in Wisconsin, Minnesota and soon to be Illinois. The company also works with sponsoring brokers or attorneys through out the nation. Dairyland Real Estate, LLC, parent company of DairyRealty.com, has participated in the sale of dairy farms in 21 states.
Dairy Realty began as an idea. Why not help people in the dairy industry buy and sell their dairy operations. While looking on line to see what was available. Finding it was almost impossible to locate more than one or two dairy farms for sales on any of these sites. There must be a better way because even these farms were always mixed in with about a 1000 other prosperities like homes, commercial building and anything else that comes to mind.
With this idea in mind a professional programmer was contacted and told about the idea. He worked the idea into a workable program in about two months. In the winter of 2002-03, www.DairyRealty.com went active on line. A fellow agriculture realtor, who worked for a very large residential firm said, “It will never work”. This fellow realtor is now a significant part of the DairyRealty.com organization. The staff members of DairyRealty.com are all experienced dairy people. Have owned and milked their our own cows, showed cattle around the world, and have been in the winner circle at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin. These people have done nutritional work, managed private and co-op feed departments as well as large and small dairies. They know dairy and have sold many dairy farms
