We are pleased to announce another outstanding quarter for Compass South Land Sales: we have closed over 65,000 acres this year, and pending sales for the remainder of 2022 are in excess of 60,000 acres.
BIG NEWS IN BIG SKY COUNTRY: Compass South Land Sales has set its sights west and opened an office in “The Best Last Place” – Montana, USA. We are excited to expand our real
estate services into the Montana markets, full steam ahead, with the same mission we have pursued in the Southeast. This new location serves as headquarters for a large disposition of roughly 30,000 acres of beautiful mountain and river land in northwest Montana. The new office will also serve as the springboard for an entire Pacific Northwest operation that will eventually include Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. John Hickman and Jared Walker are leading this endeavor with the professional and skillful support of the existing Compass South Team, as well as new agents in the West.
Our success is a testament to the hard work of our team and the dedication of our clients. We remain committed to providing the highest level of service and expertise in the industry, and look forward to continued growth. Please visit our website and follow our social media (Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn) for the introduction of new team members and new listings throughout the Southeast, Montana, and beyond!
Compass South Forestry was fully integrated in June 2022. Our first quarter proved to be exciting and the next is well underway!
Between June and September, we delivered over $3 million of net income to Southeastern landowners through timber sale administration. We also completed timber inventory and appraisal projects on just over 6,000 acres for clients in South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky.
As deer season quickly approached, our wildlife biologists assisted landowners by providing recommendations for
improving deer habitat quality and huntability. In addition,they strategically designed trail camera surveys for clients looking to inventory deer herds and identify target bucks.

According to Catherine and Connor, forestry is a great career for those who love the outdoors. Both found cruising timber in the thick woods of South Georgia to be their most challenging assignment, but enjoyed the opportunity to expand their knowledge by traveling to multiple states and observing various harvesting operations. While Catherine encourages students who enjoy the outdoors to consider a career in forestry, Connor emphasizes that the industry also requires excellent math skills. We wish each of our interns a successful 2022-23 school year!
