The low returns and high volatility of the stock market since 2000 drove me to seek alternative investments for my IRA. After deciding to invest in farmland, my online searches pointed me to the Midwest and Steve Mott with Whitetail Properties, who specializes in farmland and hunting properties. I found Steve to be very knowledgeable about both types of properties, the ins and outs of the real estate market in general, and that he had many contacts within the business. So far, he has helped me purchase two (2) properties, and we are working on a third. Steve will go out of his way to help you in any way that he can from finding a bank that handles self-directed IRA’s to putting you in contact with a farmer or hunter that will lease your property. He has been great to work with, and our business relationship has now evolved into personal friendship. If you have interest in either farmland or hunting property, I highly recommend that you give Steve a call or send him an email.
My wife and I recently purchased 217 acres of prime Whitetail and Turkey habitat through Mr. Mott. I called Steve and told him what we were looking for and Steve went to work. He is extremely knowledgeable on whitetails and awesome hunting habitat. After just one day of touring properties, we made an offer on a great 217 acre farm. This was our first purchase of hunting/farm land, and Steve did an outstanding job guiding a NYC boy through it all. To make it even more complicated for Steve, we had partners located in other states. His patience and understanding went a long way. Steve's enthusiasm and positive attitude are without equal and I would recommend using Steve for your land/farm purchase. Steve and I also built a great friendship along the way.
I just wanted to drop a short note of my experience working with Steve Mott of Whitetail Properties during a recent real estate purchase. After years of working with numerous agents I have to admit Steve stood out above all the rest. Steve's dedication, thoroughness, attention to detail went above and beyond the call of duty. Most important was that Steve showed a genuine concern of the people involved above the transaction. After the sale Steve remained in contact to ensure customer satisfaction. Something unheard in today's time. Because of his work I have made friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. Steve is very knowledgeable in his field and a great resource that I will continue to use and look forward to working with in the future.
Thanks Steve for Everything,
I wanted to extend my appreciation of my recent experience with the way you represented the sale of my property. In all of past involvement with real estate transactions your efforts and diligence was exceptional. Immediately after the signing of the agreement, you went to work with advertising and results started happening. The communication you provide on each future prospect was excellent and it did not stop after signing of the sales agreement; you kept me posted till the final check was in the mail. Your passion and knowledge of whitetails makes a great fit for the field you are in. In the future when I need further representation I will be in contact.
Steve provided a terrific experience for me and my family as we purchased our first hunting property. He demonstrated true customer focus as he took the time to understand our desires and then leveraged his expertise in real estate, wildlife management, and central Missouri to find the perfect property. After spending our first season with family and friends on the farm I can tell you Steve is in the business of “making memories.”
My name is Jimmy Stuard and I am from Mississippi. I owned 296 acres in Monroe County, Missouri and Phil Brown of Whitetail Properties was my realtor. He advertised, showed my property, found a buyer and helped him find financing. If I need to sell or buy another piece of property in the Midwest I will definitely use Phil Brown.
