My Testimonials

Invaluable Experience


  Robby Vann's knowledge and years in the business proved to be invaluable during the sale of my family's ranch. In circumstances out of our control, Robby consistently went above and beyond by providing key details others had overlooked. These details proved to be the pivot needed to keep the sale progressing. Robby is determined, professional, kind, and always willing to listen and provide solutions. Highly recommend Chas. S. Middleton and Son, and Robby Vann for any Ranch Farms and Land sales.
