Land Report Names Chas. S. Middleton and Son Best Land Brokerage 4th Straight Year in 2013
The Land Report, the nations premier magazine for American Landowners, has once again named Chas. S. Middleton and Son as one of the nations top land brokerage firms. This honor began in 2010, and without a hitch has continued on for 4 straight years.
Appearing in the Summer Edition on page 34 and 35 in the Vistas Section, Land Report first acknowledges our firm for listing the East Division of the Mesa Vista Ranch owned and operated by legendary oilman and lifelong quail enthusiast T. Boone Pickens. The East Division of the Mesa Vista Ranch contains approximately 15,708 acres and is renowned for its miles and miles of Canadian River frontage and both man made and natural creeks.
We are honored to receive this recognition and we are excited for the future.
Sam Middleton and Chad Dugger are both accredited ARA (American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers) appraisers. Appraisals are a large part of our business along with ranch and farm sales. Sam is also very active as a real estate broker in Texas, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Our firm has been involved in many substantial ranch sales through the years. Probably the most impressive is the Canadian River Cattle Company Ranch which Sam has sold three times. There are several other large ranches we have done business with over the years as well that need to be added to the list, including the 6666, UU Bar, Spike Box, Scharbauer Cattle Company, French Ranches, J.J. Gibson Estate Ranch, Matador Cattle Company, etc. They are all good customers and we appreciate them all.
Throughout the years I have learned that my fathers (Sam Middleton) reputation in this business is rivaled by few. He seems to know every inch of this country and every rancher and landowner. He has been very successful and works hard at it every day. He has taught me a lot since I came to work for him over ten years ago and I hope that I can pass along some of that to my two kids. He worked with his father in this business the same way that my grandfather and his father did. There is something special about that and I want to continue and carry on the family name and tradition in this business. Through the dust bowl, oil boom and bust, inflation, droughts and all the good times my family has continued in this business and I plan to do the same. - Charlie Middleton
Land is selling and the market is good. Interest rates are low, but many of the larger transactions we have handled recently have been cash deals. There is a lot of oil money out there and for many of these buyers, land is where they feel the most comfortable putting their money. Inventory is low and we need more listings!
