Iowa Farm Managers
Many people hire a farm manager to look after their farm. Many people inherit farms in Iowa but live a long distance away and simply do not have the time or expertise to ensure every detail can be looked after. Sometimes farmers retire and find that continuing to own their land is the best strategy and hire a farm manager to look after the farm. There are many scenarios where you would hire a farm manager to manage your Iowa farmland for you and it will bring you a great value and save you the time of dealign with the details.
If you feel like hiring a farm manager is the right strategy for you we can help you connect with a real estate professional that can help provide you professional farm management services. While we work with Farm Managers often we do not provide farm management services through our company as the vast majority of our business is representing sellers of farms. I have long held that there is a conflict of interest for an auctioneer to manage farms or a farm manager to act as an auctioneer for their client. It's certainly not illegal, its very common but the ethics of the situation bother me. First we believe that the role of Farm Manager and Auctioneer are vastly different and require very different knowledge bases and skill sets. When selling we believe you deserve the best possible representation from an auctioneer who has the right resources and is completely focused on your success by being free of any potential conflicts from long term relationships with buyers who continue to use their farm management services. You'll never want to wake up the day after your auction and have questions or wonder "what if"
