Casey Berley


Casey Berley was raised in North Texas with hunting and agricultural pursuits in both Oklahoma and Texas. Hunting, fishing, vocational agriculture, and working for a veterinarian/cattle rancher throughout his high school and college years were instrumental in influencing his love and appreciation for the land, livestock, wildlife, farming and ranching. These interests prompted Casey to pursue a degree in Animal Science from Texas A&M University where he graduated in 1989. Upon graduation, Casey entered into a productive 18+ year career in the animal health industry. As a field sales representative, district sales manager, and key account manager, he sold prescription pharmaceuticals and provided business consultation to veterinarians in private and corporate practice. In 2008, Casey transitioned from the animal health industry into farm and ranch brokerage where he has won several recognition based awards for customer service, sales initiative, and sales performance. Together with exhaustive real estate educational requirements, such achievement was instrumental in Casey earning his Accredited Land Consultant accreditation from the National Association of Realtors affiliate organization – Realtors Land Institute in 2015. Casey is quite dedicated to assisting both buyers and sellers of farm, ranch, and recreational land located in Oklahoma and Texas. Whether assisting a seller by evaluating, maximizing and negotiating the best value for their property, or assisting the buyer with comprehensive due diligence, value assessment, and negotiation, he is impassioned by meeting the needs of his clients. Casey greatly values the trust earned within his client relationships before, during, and after the sale. Consequently, he has numerous repeat clients.
