What should you look for in a farmland broker?

Experience and product knowledge

Since 1982, Dale Haugen has been marketing and selling agricultural and recreational land. In addition to being a U.S. Army Veteran, Haugen was inducted into the North Dakota Auctioneers Association Hall of Fame in 2013.

Below is a quick glance at his experience:

  • Licensed to sell real estate since 2003
  • Farmers National Company Sales Agent & Auctioneer for six years
  • Botsford Qualey Land Company Sales Agent & Auctioneer for five years
  • RE/MAX Advantage Sales Agent & Auctioneer for one and a half years
  • 2003 North Dakota State Champion Auctioneer


After experience, the next considerations are what level of service will your agent provide and how well do they communicate.

Selling your farm starts with listening to your story. Your goals. Your objectives.

After initial communication, a property inspection and broker analysis are completed. This includes reviewing comparable sales, soils maps, aerial photos, and crop history maps.

As part of the broker analysis, we will also help you pick a sale type that works best for your farm:

  • Conventional Listing
  • Sealed Bids
  • Hybrid Sealed Bid Auction
  • Live Auction


Anyone can sell your farm. But not everyone can provide the level of service you need and deserve!

While some farms sell right away, others may not. This is where experience, communication, and patience are beneficial. Paying attention to detail and taking care of loose ends are an Acres & Shares strength and are vital for a successful transaction. Once your land has sold, we will execute agreements and coordinate the closing which takes approx. 30 to 45 days after agreements are completed.

We’ll create a personalized marketing plan for you:

  • Customized detailed brochure

    • Mailed to a targeted listing of potential buyers and influencers

    • Posted on

  • Print advertising – Local and regional newspapers and magazines

  • – Your property will be promoted on, which receives 3.8 million monthly visits on Lands of America, LandAndFarm, and including 45+ Partner Sites

  • Signage placed on your property

  • Social media – Twitter, Facebook and Instagram

Call today to list your farm.

We look forward to working with you!
