As Minnesota land brokers, we specialize in land acquisitions and dispositions throughout Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, and the surrounding Midwest region. Our specialties include land within industrial, multifamily, single family, data center, master planned communities, mining, rail, retail, office, and agricultural sectors. We are consistently involved with every aspect of the transaction — from assisting in land-use and re-zoning efforts, to site selection, and aiding in identifying the correct third-party consultants for the identified asset.

One of the most critical decisions a user or developer can make is where future facilities or projects will be located and who will represent them in those transactions. The Cushman & Wakefield Land Brokerage Team has been facilitating clients’ expansion and site selection needs for 15 years and has become an industry leader in that role.
The viability of a location to serve the needs of a client is the number one goal. Our site selection process starts with an evaluation of what the client needs to achieve from the location and an analysis of how our team can best facilitate those needs. We have the latest mapping and demographics software available to help visualize – real time – how particular markets and specific locations compare to the client’s goals.  Whether it is an industrial facility where seconds count to ensuring your product is efficiently distributed to your clients or the location of an expanding bank branch or supermarket, Cushman & Wakefield’s Land Brokerage Team is second to none in creating value for this extremely important business decision.

With our extensive awareness of current market conditions and knowledge of competitive land parcels, we can provide potential sellers with the most informed and accurate estimate of what a parcel is worth in today’s market.  We excel at developing strategies to achieve optimum pricing, while ensuring minimal transaction risk.
We understand the time sensitivity involved in commercial real estate transactions and we ensure our clients’ best interests are secured in this fast moving market.


We take a creative approach to reducing the total tax liability rather than fighting over the assessed value.  If a property is greater than ten acres in size, we work with farmers to establish a crop, ultimately changing the land designation to agricultural.  This will drop the tax rate to as low as 1% of the current assessed value; whereas typical tax rates are close to 3.5% of the current assessed value.  Dropping the tax rate by over 2% can save a client hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Last year we saved clients over $1,000,000 by implementing this unique strategy.  Having a lower tax burden will also make the property more marketable to third parties.

We have been successful 100% of the time and have recently completed over 20 tax reduction assignments locally. Our tax reduction clients include: United Properties, Children’s Hospital, Bremer Bank, Interstate Companies, Frattalone Companies, Dale Properties, Imation and many others.
