Having a single location for a company’s data files is key in creating a well-oiled, efficient team environment, as well as clear communication to better serve clients. When High Point Land Company realized their appraisal department needed a place to store their comparable sales data and mapping files, they turned to FarmlandFinder Enterprise tools for assistance.
To learn more about High Point, we interviewed Jacob Hart, their company Founder. We found it interesting to learn how this company is positioning themselves to genuinely help landowners and we hope you do too.
