"When my wife and I decided that we wanted to put some funds into non-paper assets, we decided on timber land. We contacted Tom Smith and met with him one evening. We knew nothing about this kind of investment and Tom patiently explained the ins and outs and how this sort of thing worked. We discussed our desires and Tom translated those into a specific type of property that we should be looking for, considering our budget. Because of our ages, we needed to find something that would be harvestable in a relatively short time.
" Would expect nothing less from a driven and hardworking person such as Tom. The irony here is that he probably did this more for his clients (to provide the best service possible) than to advance his business...that's just the kind of guy he his!"
"Dear Tom, T and I both want to thank you for all the wonderful help you have given us over these last couple of years. I’m dropping you this “note” to ask to be removed from your email list for new properties, but I must confess, I’ll miss seeing your smiling face every morning! I can’t say that I know anyone who enjoys their work more than you. We consider ourselves your friends and will always be your Cook-Cobb road neighbors in our hearts J Once again thank you and all the best to you in 2015. I’m sure our paths will cross again soon and often! "
Our family extends our thanks to you and your entire team for managing the sale of our property. We know that a lot of time and effort went into the marketing and final sale of the property and we appreciate the many hours logged by agent, Deman Ferguson. He never failed to keep me informed and as his point of contact, i surely had thousands of questions! He was wonderful to work with. Your professionalism, knowledge and easy demeanor helped guide the process and is a remarkable testament to the love and dedication you have for the work that you do for your clients. My siblings and I, again, say thank you to you and your team and everyone connected with finalizing the sale! May God bless and keep you in his care."
My family and I are enjoying the holiday at the camp you help us purchase. We have enjoyed every minute of it. The lake in front of our camp is loaded with big bass. MY BNL has caught about 20 this afternoon even though it is cold. Sitting in the deer stand waiting for a big one."
Carlos and I truly appreciate you and your expertise during our pursuit of Willow Break. You were very informative nand definitely had the patience with me when i had a million questions and concerns. I couldn't have imagined a better person to represent us and our interests. The house warming gifts were a nice bonus. The husband loves the koozie and uses it almost everyday! The glasses are the perfect size for a frosty beverage. We look forward to staying in touch. Best of luck in the new year."
I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I talked to Michael Halfacre today and he was able to give me an average price for the land and timber based on yall's research. You both are a wealth of information that really has helped me out. If yall are ever in Virginia Beach, I owe you lunch.
