RURAL LAND BROKER
Kelvin’s first driving lesson was at age 8 when he and his dad were burning the weeds out of the ditches adjacent to one of their cornfields and his dad told him “run down to the end of the ditch and bring that pick-up down here.” Kelvin has been involved in virtually all aspects of production agriculture in the 6 decades since.
Kelvin is known for his easy-going demeanor, his diligence and his ability to make even the largest transaction feel easy. He is a trusted source for land policy issues and land development.
RURAL LAND AGENT
Waking up in the middle of the potato field in the back of the family station wagon as a 5-year-old is Brian’s first farm memory. Before dawn, Brian’s parents would carry Brian and his sister to the car and let them sleep on blankets while they drove to the fields to start their farming day. As they got older, Brian and his sister joined their parents in potato harvest, as well as other aspects of farm life including the livestock they raised each year for the 4-H Fair.
Brian brings a unique energy to each interaction. He knows that land deals can be intimidating, but they can always be fun! He is an avid outdoorsman with expertise in production agriculture and farm management.

Dana grew up in a small town helping her dad run his jewelry store. In that setting, she learned the importance of customer service and loved the versatility of working in a small business. She especially enjoyed using technology to improve customer experience.
Now as a rural residential agent, Dana brings her small town values and small business work ethic to bear on behalf of her clients. She and her husband live in a rural setting with their three kids. She loves serving her community and helping people find their dream home in the country.
