About Bart Miller

Bart was born and raised in Nebraska where his family continues to farm corn and soybeans. He grew up helping his father operate the family farm and is no stranger to the rural lifestyle and the hard work it takes to be a successful producer. The work ethic, market knowledge and adaptability required to be a successful farmer or rancher are the same standards he offers buyers and sellers when representing their specific interests in a real estate transaction.

Bart expanded his interest in agricultural land sales and land planning working for the University of Nebraska’s Economics Department. While completing his B.S. in Agricultural Business, with an emphasis in economics, he helped research and publish the “Nebraska Land Values Report”, a comprehensive guide to land values and leases throughout the state of Nebraska. He also received a research grant for his report on land improvements, soil erosion & tenant landlord relationships.

Bart takes time to research the area’s agriculture soils, crop productivity, water resources, potential irrigation and water concerns, and many other elements surrounding the purchase of a farm or ranch. He is also adept in marketing farm and ranch property on a national level.

In addition, Bart has completed a Master’s degree in Real Estate Development and Construction Management (RECM) from the University of Denver. His experience and education in real estate finance, land planning and construction systems are essential to a buyer when looking for current land with long-term urban or agricultural development potential.
