The Mossy Oak Properties network is more than just a collection of people that love to hunt, fish, and spend time in the outdoors.  It is a group of proven land specialists that have facilitated tens of thousands of transactions for their clients.  Mossy Oak Properties agents are required to complete our 16-week, Certified Land Specialist training program to increase their acumen as a land specialist.  Many of our land specialists also have backgrounds in farming, ranching, forestry, and wildlife management, to add another layer of expertise to the service they provide their clients.  Our network has been built by teaming up with land brokers that not only live the outdoor lifestyle, but again, mirror the value set you from the Mossy Oak brand.  In addition to our land specialists being passionate about hunting, fishing, and conservation, many are likely landowners themselves, meaning they relate to your emotional desire to own land.

Since 1986, the Mossy Oak brand has been built around a value set that includes honor and integrity, and as such, our brand has instant credibility with consumers.
