A Real Estate agent or broker that specialises in farms must be knowledgeable in the following: City, County and State regulations of farms. The agent must be familiar with P&L statements for farms. Farm land can be very large: some farms are more than 100 acres.

The agent must be familiar with livestock farms and crop producing farms to determine the market value of the property.[1]
