If you decide to sell a family farm in Alberta, you’ll quickly discover that there are lots of people who can help you out (or at least will advertise that they can help you to facilitate an agricultural transaction). And yet, the Fred Mertz Agency has been growing for more than a decade, with more new clients coming to us through referrals than any of our own marketing or advertising.
Why is that? And what makes Fred Mertz Farm Sales any different than our colleagues’?
In our mind, it comes down to two big reasons to work with us:
First, we have agricultural expertise. Not only did Fred grow up on a farm, but before he became a REALTOR® he devoted his professional career to helping farmers with taxes, business planning, and the day-to-day operation of agricultural businesses. That means he doesn’t just understand the financial aspects of selling a farm, but also what kinds of considerations families have to make, and the challenges that are part of the process.
And second, we place a high priority on service before and after the sale. A family farm is more than a business, and a REALTOR® that helps you sell agricultural property should be more than a name on a business card. Fred believes that long, honest talks over kitchen tables are better than meetings in corporate boardrooms, and that clients should be able to call him at any time with their most important questions, regardless of whether or not it’s during business hours.
When it comes down to it, farmers and their families like to work with us because we know what we’re doing, and we try to help them find the best answers for their lives and situations. By following that kind of straightforward approach, we can help them open the door to the next chapter in their lives and careers, whatever that might bring.
