2023 ushers in changes at this trusted Valley brokerage, including a new name and brand identity, along with an expanded approach.
VISALIA, CA – Schuil Ag Real Estate has unveiled a new brand identity and name (formerly Schuil & Associates), reflecting its long-standing commitment to California’s agriculture industry and recent expansion in services. The new look and moniker represent a new era for the company, which is poised for growth in 2023.
An established leader in agriculture real estate with roots in Tulare County, the brokerage primarily focused on dairy transactions in its early years. But as the industry continues to change and the needs of their customers evolve, the Schuil team has expanded beyond the dairy sector and grown to meet those needs.
In 2022, the brokerage oversaw transactions of over 6,024 acres in specialty crops, over 8,479 acres in dairy sales, and over 17,329 acres in open land and development properties across the Central Valley. They are positioned for even more volume in 2023, aiding clients with selling and purchasing all types of ag land while navigating the complex process of 1031 exchanges.
Leading the charge since 2021 is Schuil Ag Real Estate’s President and Principal, Doug Phillips. The first non-family member to hold the position since the firm started 40 years ago, Doug has brought fresh eyes and similar values to the team, with a focus on stewardship.
“For over 40 years, Schuil & Associates have established a level of excellence through fortitude, dedication, and a commitment to integrity. We are honored to carry this heritage of vision and virtue into the next generation,” says Phillips. “While our name is different, our relationships will remain the same. We are dedicated to offering our clients the same top performance, knowledgeable support, and good old-fashioned sound advice every day in the field or in the office.”
Along with Schuil Ag Real Estate’s expanded focus, they’ve recently hired Carolina Evangelo as their new Marketing Director and promoted Paige Sweeney (Gilkey) to Senior Operations Director – furthering the brokerage’s vision for the future and setting their clients up for success in 2023.
