When you’re buying a horse or farm property, you’re not just buying a home, you’re buying a great New Hampshire way of life. It is important that you use a real estate agent who is knowledgeable about the unique nature of these country properties and all that can be entailed.  Many factors can come into play from zoning and permitted uses to easements, current use taxation and upcoming changes that may affect your intended use of the property.  
We understand what you are looking for.  We know that your Hanovarian Percheron won't fit in a low cattle barn, that the thick, rocky forest is not suitable for clearing for future pasture, and that the lawn around the house is not where you want to graze your goats or sheep.  We understand limits on how much you can spend, how much time you may have to manage your property, and that you "must-have" certain features.  

We can help make your move easier as we have all done it ourselves!  As examples of how we differ from ordinary Realtors®, we have assisted with shipping horses and livestock coming and going, have found temporary farm rentals while folks were waiting for their new farm to be vacated, even found a place for mules to live for a few months until their owners could get here from the upper midwest. We mean it when we say that we are not your ordinary Realtors®.  Read our many testimonials.

Please consider one of the specialty Realtors® of Farms & Barns.  If you don't, while you’re out looking at an unsuitable property that perfect farm could slip away. Just tell us what you're looking for and if it's out there, we'll help you find it.  We all hold the Certified Buyer Representative® designation.

                                                                                               You're not buying ordinary real estate and that's great because we're not ordinary Realtors®
