Chase Burns is a licensed real estate managing broker and auctioneer, in Illinois, and is land specialist, in the truest meaning of the word. Having closed deals as small as $25,000 and as large as $5 million, his experience is broad. Recently, he spent a year sourcing and researching tillable farms for acquisition and negotiating their purchase, on behalf of a private equity investment firm. In that time, he performed valuations on over 300 separate farms and attended more than 185 farmland auctions across Illinois, and several in Iowa and Indiana. This education in farmland values and what to look for in a quality land investment, places him among the leading experts on farmland values and investing in the midwest. He has studied the operations of nearly every currently licensed auction firm and real estate brokerage in Illinois and has learned from their cumulative successes, as well as short comings, and is applying what he has determined to be the industry’s best practices to his own land brokerage dealings. Chase is a member of the National Auctioneers Association, and the Illinois State Auctioneers Association, and is a graduate of the World Wide College of Auctioneering.
Chase is also owner of Dogwood Land Management, which offers comprehensive land management services for premier hunting properties across Illinois, and eastern Iowa. Chase attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale where he studied wildlife biology, and holds a Level II Deer Steward certification.
Additionally, he is part of the professional team which produces a show called The Management Advantage, where he is regularly featured as an expert on whitetail deer, and habitat manipulations geared at attracting, growing and holding other wildlife.
Chase , also, volunteers a great deal of time for the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA), and other conservation initiatives. He serves as President of the West Central Illinois Branch, and of the Illinois State Chapter of the QDMA, and has been nationally recognized with the award of “Branch President of the Year” by the organization. Chase also serves on the Advisory Council for the Illinois Habitat Fund, which determines how Habitat Stamp dollars are spent by the IDNR.
On a personal note, Chase is a devoted father and follower of Christ. He and his wife – Jackie are raising their two boys on their own intensively managed hunting property, and are active members of the First Baptist Church of Aledo, IL.
“Chase helped our family purchase a recreational property. First and foremost, he was excellent at communication and very engaged throughout and after the process. If we had concerns or questions, he was quick to help us out, and made sure to meet us at every property we were looking at- walking all over with us. He was also family-friendly which was helpful as our kids are young. Another great thing about Chase is his extensive knowledge of land management- he helped us see the potential our land had and had ideas or contacts on how to make that dream a reality. We worked with a few other brokers early in our search and Chase was just so much better to work with. Overall – very satisfied!!! He helped us find our dream property and was very supportive the whole process through!”
– Tracy Schrauben
“My husband, Tim, and I met Chase during our search for land. We required wooded acreage with a building site suitable for our future home. We came out of the process very satisfied. His knowledge about trees, wildlife, and forestry was impressive. He willingly shared his knowledge and advice on each piece of property we looked at. Ultimately we found the right piece of land and Chase followed through on every detail from our first phone call to closing. I was impressed with Chase’s depth and breadth of knowledge, his professionalism, and especially his follow-though. His reliability and honesty are unmatched by any other agent I’ve ever met. His people skills are just a bonus. He communicated thoroughly and made our experience a positive one. I would work with Chase again on any future land purchases and will recommend him to anyone looking for property.”

“I met Chase by responding to one of his recreational land listings. Having worked with a number of uninspiring agents, what I found in Chase completely changed all of my expectations for professionals working in this field. Chase’s knowledge, experience and expertise are second to none. What I most appreciate in Chase are his personal skills – he is honest, dependable, hard working, a great communicator and is 118% genuine. He is committed to his customers, his industry and professional growth – he loves what he does. For me, Chase has created a new “high bar” standard for those I seek to work with in this industry – so far, he is in a class all by himself.”

God Bless every one of you.
If you are buying or selling, go with Landguys!
Chase Burns defines “Above and Beyond”. My husband and I moved to Illinois from California, in the middle of an extended winter. Chase was amazing. We described the little farmhouse with acreage that we were dreaming about, and Chase found it. But, he didn’t want us to fly all the way to Illinois without seeing interior photos and having a full report, so he went out of his way to tour the property and sent us tons of pics and a full review, including info on the septic, roof and plumbing. We fell in love with our farmhouse and put an offer in within five days of the house being on the market. We have lived here and enjoyed our property for three months, now. Two mini-horses, three baby goats, 18 chickens, four cats and two dogs later… We are so in love with our hobby farm! Chase has freely shared his knowledge and contacts for land, hay, property upgrades, remodeling, ect. He is not only a professional realtor and an invaluable resource, he has also become a great friend. We have family planning to move to Illinois in the next year, and Chase’s services will be highly recommended to them!
Thank you Chase for making our dreams come true.
