How do we gracefully manage the sale of a living family heirloom?
“It’s important to honor the heritage of the farm and convey that sense of history to buyers,” says Zach Davis, President & Principal Broker of Kirkpatrick & Co. When the time comes to entrust a new steward with a family farm, Kirkpatrick & Co. provides sensitive expertise.
After gathering historic information, stories, and family wishes, a story takes shape. Davis finds that for most buyers, the legacy holds special appeal. Conveying that is paramount. Also crucial? Kirkpatrick & Co. Associates work in concert with a family’s legal and financial teams to develop a strategic plan for the sale.
Lastly, Davis says, “we’re matchmakers,” working to pair a buyer who will honor the family’s wishes & develop favorable terms for all.
