We say, “YES”. Read the Land Think article here: https://www.landthink.com/pulse-land-agents-should-be-armed-with-natural-resource-training/
Another great read by Land Think author Jonathan Goode can be found here: https://www.landthink.com/not-all-real-estate-agents-are-competent-about-land/
Jonathon’s article relates to Article 11 of The National Association of Realtors (NAR) Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice that states:
The services which REALTORS® provide to their clients and customers shall conform to the standards of practice and competence which are reasonably expected in the specific real estate disciplines in which they engage; specifically, residential real estate brokerage, real property management, commercial and industrial real estate brokerage, land brokerage, real estate appraisal, real estate counseling, real estate syndication, real estate auction, and international real estate.
REALTORS® shall not undertake to provide specialized professional services concerning a type of property or service that is outside their field of competence unless they engage the assistance of one who is competent on such types of property or service, or unless the facts are fully disclosed to the client. Any persons engaged to provide such assistance shall be so identified to the client and their contribution to the assignment should be set forth. (Amended 1/10).
So, please consider the background and training of the agent you choose to sell your land.
