Why CLHbid.com?

After considering different sales options, we chose the CLHbid online process, which ensured our most important consideration; that anyone interested have an equal, fair and transparent opportunity to purchase our land. The exposure through large on sight signage, broadly distributed advertising and a very effective website, brought together a varied array of interested buyers that provided the most effective form of open price discovery possible.

We were pleased with the overall outcome and happy as well to hear from the new landowners who felt they paid a fair price.

Sandy and I sincerely appreciated the professionalism portrayed by all the CLHbid staff members which made the sale of our farm after 46 years, a much easier experience for us.

As both a seller and buyer of agricultural land, I have made use of various platforms over the years. Most platforms, including those of the large auction companies, are very busy, as they try and sell everything from used lawnmowers to irrigated quarters. Whether selling or buying land, I much prefer the CLHbid platform. The CLHbid.com website is easy to navigate and user friendly to bid on. At the end of the day, I am confident that by just focusing on farmland, CLHbid.com brings a much higher value to sellers. I have used CLHbid.com to sell land in the past and would for sure use them again.

Our Colony has used CLHbid more than once to buy land. We like the process 100%. We think CLHbid is the best system for selling land. It is fair to sellers and buyers. We don't like closed tenders to a law firm where you only get one chance and never really know what goes on. Using CLHbid, we can keep increasing our bid. It gives us time to think and calculate from the privacy of our Colony. In the end, the buyer knows they paid a fair price.

After the loss of our parents, my sister and I as joint Executrices of their will, had the task of selling our third generation farm. Our first attempt was to try to sell through newspaper tender but we received no offers. When we heard of CLHbid.com we weren't sure if this would work for us either but we were wrong. They sold the farm in the midst of COVID-19 and the downturn in the economy to multiple buyers. All five of us were impressed with their efforts on our behalf and the professionalism they displayed and we would definitely recommend CLHbid.com with an estate to sell.

Few things can be more valued in business than ingenuity and honest dealings. Notwithstanding reports that the CEO is or once was a lawyer, I have found Roy Carter and the entire CLHbid.com team in full and ready possession of ingenuity, honesty and common sense to boot. Dealing with them has been pleasurable and profitable and I’d encourage any seller to consider their services without reservation.

Most executors talked about the hardships and problems they had encountered when selling their family farmland; the shortfall from an assumed land value, chaotic purchase equality and opportunity for all potential buyers, ineffective marketing and promotion of the land sale, and rumor-strategies that reduced the number of potential buyers. The CLHbid system removes those risks and complications that arise when selling the farm. As an executor, I explored today’s selling options for our sale. The CLHbid system is years ahead of anything else available today. Their experience and expertise made the process simple, with an incredible outcome for us.

When the time came to sell our ranch, consisting of 32 quarter sections in one block, we wanted to ensure we received fair value for this rare assemblage and so decided to go with CLHbid.com. We especially liked the fact that CLHbid.com was specifically designed for the sale of agricultural land, and offered a unique selling feature in their en bloc system. We feel the en bloc feature increased the value of our land considerably. I would certainly recommend CLHbid.com to anyone looking to sell their farm or ranch.

We elected to go with CLHbid.com to sell our 100 year old Saskatchewan/Alberta ranch, made up of 45.5 quarter sections. As the land was held in a corporation, CLHbid worked closely with our accountant to utilize tax strategies to maximize the net after tax returns to all shareholders. Their ability to package parcels, engage the maximum amount of bidders by offering the ‘en bloc’ option and market into the financial sector was a game-changer. In the end the entire Hjalte Ranch was sold in a matter of hours to 7 different buyers.

We tried to sell some of our farm land retaining a local law firm to place a tender in the local paper for us. We would never go this route again. With the tender process, there is little transparency for either the Seller or Buyer and the experience was fraught with problems including poor marketing. In the end the highest tender was well short of what we eventually sold the land for using CLHbid.com. We believe the CLHbid.com model solves all of the problems inherent with tendering, especially in a small community. When the time comes, we will be using CLHbid.com to sell our remaining land as well.

I think CLHbid.com is the way of the future. Now people need to realize this is another option to sell their land other than listing it or an auction. If I was to sell land, I would go this way and I think most people would consider it if they know about it. It is a fair system and no backroom dealings. I think my land values have increased with the CLHbid.com concept.

Tim Garner
Professional Agrologist - Farmer, AB

After over 50 years on our Ranch we decided to sell. After looking at various options we elected to go with CLHbid.com. CLHbid.com totally removed the stress that comes with business dealings between neighbours and friends. All bidders had an equal chance to bid in privacy online. We are convinced CLHbid.com got us the highest sale price we could ever have expected for our Ranch. We were not required to pay for an expensive guarantee either. Given their legal background the CLHbid.com team was most helpful in all aspects of the selling process. On sale day, the Ranch sold in just 3 hours to 3 neighbours. We were never informed as to who was bidding or who was second highest bidder and liked it that way. In the end, the Ranch sold on our timeline, for top dollar and we remained friends with all our neighbours.

Best decision we could have made. Our experience with CLHbid.com was phenomenal. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to sell farm land. Their team is efficient, accommodating and professional. We would like to thank CLHbid.com for their complete understanding in a time of transition.

A neighbor’s ranch that had been in their family for generations was listed for sale by real estate as one listing of over 40 quarter sections. None of us neighbors wanted or could afford it all and the real estate listing finally expired with no offers. The owners then put the land up for sale with CLHbid.com. This suited us neighbors perfectly and in the end seven of us bought the land we each wanted. I was able to bid on and buy my land from my house. CLHbid gave us all notice of the sale and allowed all neighbors an equal chance.

We went with CLHbid.com to sell our land in Central Alberta. In the end CLHbid.com sold it for almost double the guarantee we were offered by another large auction company. The team at CLHbid.com didn’t just talk the talk but walked the walk for us.

Tried listing with real estate for over 2 years and could not even get an offer. With CLHbid.com having legal, accounting, and farm expertise coupled with community respect, the decision was easy. The CLHbid.com team was motivated, reliable and marketed the land in a professional way. The incredible part is CLHbid.com ended up selling it for well over what realtors had it listed for.

Thanks for the work your firm did in preparing for the auction. I don’t think it could have gone smoother from our perspective. Appreciated your firm standing between seller and buyer. We knew it was the way to go as soon as we read your info brochure.

It was a pleasure to work with the entire CLHbid.com team for selling our land. The best part was that you did all the work and looked after all the details, which left us with nothing to worry about. The whole marketing process was impressive right up to the sale date. We can never thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to sell our farm on a given date and with no hassle for well above what we had anticipated.

Phil & Lorraine Hotton
Farmers - County of Grande Prairie, AB

We were looking to consolidate, so retained CLHbid.com to sell land away from our main ranch. We had a standing offer and were told by many we should accept it. Not knowing the real value however, we trusted the CLHbid.com platform to get us top value. In the end the land sold for well in excess of that standing offer and over 2x the Starting Bid. We are confident CLHbid.com brings true value for your land. We also didn’t have to pick between neighbours as to who got it in the end. We would certainly use CLHbid.com to sell land in the future.

You made the sale of my farm land so easy & hassle free, I cannot thank you enough. You did an exceptional job of advertising and just getting it out there. The final sale price was beyond my wildest dreams. I will recommend you to everyone I know that wants to sell their farm & if you need me to talk to anyone that is doubtful just let me know.
