Hi, I’m Wayne and until 1985 I operated a 2300-acre grain and livestock farm in the Tilden Illinois area. In 1990 I became a real estate agent for the local Century-21 office, then in 1996 I switched to a Nebraska-based company which was more farm oriented. In 1997 I began using the internet to market property and soon added aerial photos. A following soon developed and began to grow….In September 1998 I registered the name “buyafarm.com” as my personal website. Since this time buyafarm.com has grown into Buy A Farm Land and Auction Company LLC. Mark Kennedy, Todd Hewing, my daughter Brenda Chandler and I formed this company in the Summer of 2005 based on the already well established buyafarm.com and were soon joined by Joe O’Kane and Don Bailey. We have since added several agents.
My first love is still farming, behind family of course. Other interests are flying and photography. As you can see below, I sometimes combine them all.
My daughter Brenda has been with me since Buy A Farm Land and Auction Company was formed. In 2014 both my wife Jamie, and my son-in-law, Brenda’s husband Brad, came on board as agents.
If you are thinking of buying, selling or auctioning farm or recreational property, please give me a call. I have sold in excess of 50,000 acres and would appreciate a chance to work with you!
