Great people to deal with. Honest and easy to communicate with. Great personal touch. They were very knowledgable about the timber industry and were able to give great insight into our future needs.

Preston Thompson

I have been working and hunting with Brad Smith for many years. His practical knowledge of land realty and forestry practices implemented in todays diverse timberlands and land management environment has proven his expertise both in the field and in the software used in forest and land management practices. I would highly recommend his consultation to anyone looking to improve their property for hunting, timber/land improvement, or for anyone looking to purchase their own property. His honesty and integrity has proven precedence in both his professional and private life. Hands down one of the best in the business.

Marty McCrary

I have had a number of business dealings with Brad Smith over a period of years involving real estate and timber sales and appraisals. I have found him reliably professional, dependable and timely in accomplishing tasks that I asked of him. He always keeps in close communication with the client and his integrity is without question. I recommend him highly.

Michael Nelson

I can highly recommend Mr. Warren Peters. Recently he handled a land sale for my sister and me. In addition to being a very personable man, he was very professional, informative and timely in all matters. He very actively publicized our property. He discussed all options with my sister and me, but he left final decisions to us. He continues to handle Louisiana real estate matters for us.
