Real Estate Brokerage Services

Knowledge. Trust. Commitment. Experience.

With over 20+ years in the Agricultural real estate industry and a lifetime of experience on the farm, Broker Matt Pennebaker, ARA, President and CEO of Advanced Ag Realty & Appraisal is proud to provide the California Agricultural real estate community with an Advanced approach to buying and selling California Ag real estate.

My goal for the buyer and seller is quite different than most Ag real estate brokers, and is simple; Employ techniques which save both time and money.

SELLERS:

Rather than just listing your property on the market at a rate between 4-6% commission of the sale price, I can offer a better rate while directly targeting specific quality buyers, investors and sellers within the industry. If my direct marketing of your property does not produce satisfactory results, I will gladly list your property on the open market at the appropriate commission rate. With my techniques you have nothing to lose, and only extra time and money to gain.

If you are looking to sell your Ag property contact me today. My experience and reputation in the central valley has resulted in a variety of contacts from local farmers looking to grow, to large regional Ag producers, as well as diversified wealth management investors. It’s likely that I can find someone interested in purchasing your property directly at a lower commission. I can also assist you in a 1031 exchange to maximize your tax benefit.

BUYERS:

For buyers, I employ a different approach; I utilize my past 20+ years of contacts in the Ag industry to match the right buyer or investor with the right seller. I know how to find Ag properties to fit the needs of the individual buyer or investor. I then apply my ability to analyze crop production, costs, inputs and returns of an Ag property to the benefit of the investor or farmer, while analyzing fair market value for both the buyer and seller. Additionally, my years of experience of working within the Farm Credit System gives me a competitive advantage by offering you a better understanding of the terms a typical buyer may encounter when seeking financing to purchase their property.

If you know the commodity or property type you are interested in, I am confident that I can help locate almost any property to suit your needs. If you are undecided about the best commodity fit for your operation or portfolio, I can assist you in determining the most beneficial acquisition for your farming or investment goals.

PRIVATE PARTY TRANSACTIONS:

If you have already negotiated directly, but desire the peace of mind of finalizing the details and complying with Real Estate Laws and Regulations, I would be more than happy to assist both parties for a nominal fee saving both the buyer and seller substantial commission fees.
