R. Mark Crews, Lic. Real Estate Broker FL & GA
Coming from a small agricultural community on the shore of Lake Okeechobee in South Florida gave Mark the foundation and the early understanding of how important it was to be a good steward of the land. While still in high school, and a member of Future Farmers of America, he started his cattle herd over 50 years ago, he’s still a cattleman today. Mark has a great knowledge and passion for the outdoors, wildlife and cattle. So, it was inescapable that his future would always revolve around land and agriculture; but he also lived in Palm Beach county, so he saw first-hand the huge opportunities of investment properties and real estate.
Mark has over 23 years’ experience in agricultural real estate, land acquisitions and residential development with various companies, including a national land company. As a member of the prestigious REALTORS® Land Institute he is an Accredited Land Consultant (ALC), an elite group of over 500 land specialists around the world. Mark was distinguished in March of 2019 as an APEX 2018 National Producer by Realtors Land Institute.
As an Accredited Land Consultant, Mark has access to a multitude of resources to best serve his clients, with experience in 1031 and Reverse 1031 Exchanges, also Self-directed IRA’s and Conservation Easements. He has earned the expertise to help guide you as a Buyer or Seller, so you are going forward with the knowledge you need to make an informed decision when purchasing or selling your property.
This did not just “happen”, his success came from constantly learning about the possibilities of every piece of dirt he looks at and all its characteristic and resources, from the soil and water, the current market, to the location. Conveying to clients the potential of a property as an investment, a ranch, farm, recreational property, timber tract or whatever it may be. Mark takes great satisfaction in the benefits he gives his client from his extensive knowledge.
He strives to make all real estate transactions for his clients as convenient and effortless as possible, from beginning to end, by providing you the services you expect in a prompt and professional manner. Mark’s parents instilled a great work ethic in him at a young age. Mark grew-up in a family that the love of God, country and family were imperative, he learned by example that your integrity was everything, you must always be a man of your word and you must always do the right thing.
Robert (Robbie) Norvell, Sales Associate
Growing up in a large family of law enforcement and cattlemen, I also invested my career days serving our county for 30 years as a firefighter/medic. As a third-generation cattleman, my appreciation for everything agricultural was inevitable. I managed my first large cattle operation at a young 17 years and soon discovered that land use and knowing its potential was just part of the process.
Through the years, understanding the possibilities and challenges of agricultural land ultimately progressed to my working as a consultant to buyers, sellers, and real estate brokers, which eventually led to my securing a real estate license.
Land acquisition becomes cumbersome when fast sales have been made and the land is inadequate for intended purposes. Sadly, I’ve been asked for information after a buyer didn’t know the right questions to ask before a transaction was made, and sellers, often not local, too often list their properties for prices that simply don’t happen.
My intimate knowledge of agricultural land has been a 50+ year process. Experience cannot be bought or taught quickly but is meant to be shared. If you’re looking for agricultural land or opportunities, let’s talk!
Logan Perry, Sales Associate
Logan Perry, a fourth generation Florida cattleman, was raised by a ranching family in Okeechobee, FL. As a teenager, he took every opportunity to help and learn from local cattlemen and applied his skills to the family preconditioning operation. While in high school he served as Vice President of his FFA Chapter and participated in the Florida High School Rodeo Association.
Logan earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Communications from the University of Florida in 2014. His studies were not strictly in communications, as he took several classes in Cow/Calf and Feedlot Management. He was also on the UF Horse Judging Team and played a big role in bringing home the Championship in 2014. While at UF, Logan was a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity.
Upon returning home from college, Logan stepped right into working on the family operation. In 2017, he was given the opportunity to call the operation his own. Now Logan, and his wife, Jesse, own and manage a heifer development operation just outside of Indiantown, FL. Along with the heifers, they run a cow/calf herd, and still do some preconditioning of yearlings. He is always looking for ways to improve his operation and maximize production, efficiency, and low stress handling. Logan also raises bucking horses and has provided the stock for many of the state’s ranch rodeos and high school rodeos. He is a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, working as a pick-up man.
Logan, as a Real Estate associate is eager to meet you and help you find the right property that will meet all your needs and expectations. He is very knowledgeable of the proper requirements it takes to make a successful ranch property and is always open to listening to what you have in mind. Logan grew up in a family that understood the value of real estate and owning property, it was embedded in him since he was a young boy.
He is willing to learn and has never been afraid of hard work or a challenge. Logan enjoys spending time with his wife and 1 year old daughter Ella, he is active with the youth in the Okeechobee area and helping in mentoring some of our future ranchers and cattlemen.
