Chase Burns
Illinois Land Broker

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 Advantagewhere 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.


I would like to take this platform to thank Chase Burns, Landguys, and Don Wagner for doing a great job selling my property . I wish the new owner the best of luck this year. This property was very special to me and the sales team as well as the buyer have been flat out awesome!!! As we transition to Missouri , I wish I had these guys guiding me to my new farm. God Bless every one of you.
