What Our Clients Say

We knew we could trust Geswein Farm & Land

We have known Geswein Farm & Land for many years and knew we could trust them to handle such a large transaction for us. We were quite surprised when our family farm sold very quickly for a very fair price in today’s market.

Leuck Family

102 Acres

We highly recommend their services to sellers.

Working with Johnny was a real pleasure. He was knowledgeable, respectful, proactive when things began to happen quickly and thorough when we worked towards and ultimately through closing. My sisters and I appreciated his gentle heart towards us in light of the circumstances of our sale. He kept in close contact with us from the onset right through to the day we closed. He has even checked in a few times since then to see how we are doing. We highly recommend his services to a potential seller (or buyer for that matter!)

Johnson Family

80 Acres

Consummate Professionals, Excellent & Timely communicators.

They know the farming culture in Indiana, had interested buyers in hand from the beginning, helped us understand how to value our land. Found buyer who cares about land stewardship, which is important to us. We were pleased with the agreed upon price and the expedited closing. They also handled related details such as the farm survey flawlessly. We recommend Geswein Farm and Land Real Estate without reservation. Would use them again in a minute.

Abolt Family

326 Acres

Good Listeners & Proactive Communicator.

My family sold some property and was looking to do a 1031 exchange and Johnny was one of the people we called. He was super responsive and easy to work with. Johnny is a good listener, proactive communicator, and very consultative. Even after we closed on the farm property, Johnny was available to answer our questions and introduce us to the neighbors. If you are looking to purchase a farm, I highly recommend you give Geswein Farm & Land Realty a call. You will be glad you did!

S. Gutwein Family

96 Acres

The Best team in the industry.

My family had been working with Geswein team for over a year to help us find perfect paradise. It is ALWAYS good to work with the BIGGEST and BEST team in the industry, we probably would not have found the property we did without the help of Geswein Farm & Land. Very happy with Johnny Klemme and the work that he put forth the find the right property for us.

Rohrman Family

140 Acres

We appreciated that they were always honest and didn’t pressure us

We worked with Geswein Farm & Land when searching for and finally purchasing our first property. They were always available to answer our frequent questions and take us on tours of the two parcels we were considering. As nervous first-time buyers, we appreciated that they were always honest and didn’t pressure us. We had been looking for land in the area for many months and had a few bad experiences with other sellers/agents, so it was refreshing to find Johnny and have a smooth process. I’d recommend Geswein to anyone looking for land in the Greater Lafayette area.

Claire & Mike Smith

They go above & beyond.

We tell anyone looking to buy or sell land real estate to hire Geswein Farm & Land. They understand the needs of the client and go above and beyond what is expected of them. We cannot thank Johnny enough for all the work he put into the sale and subsequent purchase of farm real estate for our family.

Linder Family

90 Acres

Knowledgeable, Experienced and Reliable.

I have worked with Geswein Farm & Land when I was buying and also when I was selling land. And I will continue to do so because they are knowledgeable, experienced and reliable. They do not charge excessive fees. I recommend them as a land broker.

S. Lemaster

Our family is sure glad we had Geswein Farm & Land handle the sale of our family farm.

R. Happ Family

Working with Johnny at Geswein Farm & Land was great! No stress!

He answered all questions and gave very good advice. Additionally, he worked very hard to get us the best deal possible and sent us weekly updates. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Brown Family

62 Acres

We highly recommend Geswein Farm & Land for selling your property!

When it came time to sell our family farm land, we contacted Geswein who came highly recommended. They found buyers for the tillable farm land and wooded property in a timely manner & kept us informed throughout the entire process. We cannot begin to thank their team enough for all their help.

Marron & Voytek Family

145 Acres

We highly recommend Geswein Farm & Land

They are consummate professionals & quickly found buyers who offered a no-contingency, full-price offer, and facilitated the sale by keeping communication open between buyers, sellers, and real estate professionals. They are most knowledgeable farm and land real estate brokers I have ever worked with and ALWAYS available to answer questions and offer help. Selling a family property that has been the focal point for 45 years is not an easy endeavor, but they helped us through all the technicalities: financial, logistical, and even emotional. Their knowledge of real estate – and perhaps equally importantly, their sensitivity to people’s memories and experiences – make them an outstanding listing agent. We highly recommend Geswein Farm & Land.
