Hiring Monte to sell our farm turned out to be the smoothest transaction we have ever been involved with.

Steve H.-North Carolina January, 2022

We have been fortunate to work with excellent customers and clients over the years. Some of the kind comments we have received are cited here.


We can’t thank you enough for the excellent job you did selling our farm. Anytime you need a reference let me know.

Thank you for all your work with our farm transaction. You have made everything so smooth and easy for my sister and me.
It always nice to work with good people like you and Dan.

I want you to know we do very much appreciate receiving your reports. Without loading us down with data, you provide a concise and current barometer for “local” values.
Thanks for including us! Happy New Year!
Great report with outstanding documentation. Too many so called pundits shoot their mouth off with no backup. I hope national farm publications use your report.


We truly appreciate what you all did for the auction.
We’re so thankful we could be there and be part of
”A memorable day”! And Thank you so much for the DVD of the farm auction!

“Thanks for the update. I cannot express how thrilled we are to have this happen so quickly. It is due to your great work!”
Sue S., Bettendorf, IA
“The W. family would like to give you a great big “Thank You” for all the leg work and you spent on selling our land. We never believed it would happen with the economy the way it is and you guys did it! We are all so pleased. Now we are free of all burdens.”
Mrs. W., Rockford, IL
“I spoke with Darrin a few months back and wanted to convey something he said. He told me you were great to work with and are probably the most professional and honest real estate broker he has ever encountered. I would certainly agree with him. Thought you should know what the word is on you out there. It was an absolute pleasure working with you. I cannot think of another person to have engaged to see us through this process. I can’t thank you enough. I really want to commend and thank you for everything you did for us.”

Mike M., Los Angeles, CA

“Monte, I am so grateful everything turned out really well. Thank you for everything you did for the sale, you did a great job for us. Thank you very, very much. We all are grateful that things went so smoothly.”

Denise S., Downers Grove, IL

“My land sale was so easy with Monte. I wish my daily life were as easy as my transaction with Monte and Sterling Land Company. I highly endorse him.”

Steve F., Laguna Beach, CA

Can’t begin to express our thanks for your emails on sales of ground. We especially appreciate the use of $ per PI. We have promoted and praised your organization, hopefully some value will come to you as a result.
Ed S. Streator, IL
Again, know how appreciated yours and Jons’ effort is in getting here. 
Just saying “thank you” is lacking. Terri and I are so grateful for all you did for us! 
I will be in touch again soon, but right now, we’re opening a bottle of champagne. You should do the same!

Thanks for all your help getting my mom’s farm sold at an excellent price.  I would work with you again if I had another farm to sell!


San Diego, CA

I would like to say that I have been very impressed and appreciative of both of your knowledge, your engagement with us and your insights into farm sales in general. 
 Please keep our two farms in mind for any potential buyers you are representing as I know how connected you both are in the Illinois farmland ecosystem.  We’d love to sell to someone you represent!

I would like to sign up to receive your land sale report [again] after many years of enjoying it. Thank you.

Thank you for you time in discussing options on our farmland in western Iowa. I am glad to report that we already received a good offer and are in escrow.

Thank you very much for all your help with my brother’s properties this spring and now the advice on possible agent companies that work in western Iowa.
