My entire career, spanning the last 23 years, has been focused on the regional agricultural industry with many of those years spent in farm management and operations. For the last few years, I have been concentrating on and have been very active in the specialized representation of clients involved in large farm and ranch transfers totaling millions of dollars. With my extensive business background and hands-‐on farm experience, I am able to understand and appreciate the unique needs of farm and ranch sellers and buyers much better than a generalist real estate broker. My other, most important attribute that can be directly related to years of involvement in the farming community, is a highly ingrained work ethic and belief that hard work and attention to detail will always set me apart. Investment grade agricultural property is my specialty. With my vast experience in agribusiness and commitment to stay abreast of the current markets, including active sellers and buyers, I have developed the skills necessary to quickly evaluate a farm or ranch property, determine a value based upon my knowledge and then present a package to you outlining the steps necessary to meet your goals. Once we are committed to a plan, I have the resources available to make the plan a reality. Over the years, I have built an extensive network and database of farm related buyers, sellers and ancillary service providers. This equates to a vast pool of marketing contacts and source of referrals.
Excellent customer service, extreme integrity, unparalleled professionalism, deep market knowledge and my obsession to always put your needs before my own, set me apart from my competition. I truly care about you and the commitment and sacrifices you have made to the agricultural lifestyle. I take the representation of you and your needs very seriously and I bring an entrepreneurial spirit and attention to detail to every transaction I am involved in. This allows me to interpret the inevitable road blocks we will encounter in a transaction a bit differently and find solutions that may not be readily apparent. This translates into a smooth and efficient land transfer that will happen in a timely manner, garner you the best price and burden you with the least amount of anxiety.
My passion is agriculture. My ambition is to assist you in realizing your goals. Please allow me to put that passion and ambition to work for you!

"Selling a working farm in today’s economy can be a difficult task. After three years struggling with no success from a reputable farm real estate company, I approached Ben Sinner, of The WestOne Group, to sell our Idaho farm. His understanding and tenacity in managing each element of the process was excellent, very professional, and a sale was completed. Ben’s ability to work through the legal issues encumbering this property, as well as managing the emotions of a long-time, family undivided interest, was the key to this successful sale. The fact that the property was located in Idaho created many demands that were expertly managed and completed.
After such a good experience, how could I not involve The WestOne Group with a second, and more challenging farm sale in Walla Walla County. Again the expertise and desire to create a successful sale was accomplished, at a high price unheard of in the market area. I encourage you to seek the assistance of this fine firm with your challenging real estate issues."

The development of a multi-faceted background ranging from property and facilities site selection, office building development and leasing, industrial property development and management, and retail development and leasing, led to the experience necessary to provide you a wide variety of brokerage assistance. The WestOne Group awaits the opportunity to assist in developing the profitability and success you desire from your real estate holdings.
2011 brought the addition of Adam Woiblet to The WestOne Group team. Adam's focus and expertise on "all things concerning farms and ranches" provides clients of The WestOne Group another level of experience in Agricultural Real Estate marketing unique to the Northwest.
