Chad Bals

Land Broker, Auctioneer

Chad Bals  Agent/Auctioneer Farmland Specialist

Chad Bals is a licensed real estate agent, auctioneer, and ringmen with DreamDirt Farm & Ranch Real Estate. Chad started working for DreamDirt in November of 2012, while still maintaining employment at his local John Deere Implement. Chad and his family currently live in Southwest Iowa in Taylor County, but he grew up in Northwest Iowa in Pocahontas County. His love for agriculture began at the age of 10 when he would help on his uncle's farm on weekends in a small farrow to finish operation. In the spring and summer he would help by picking up rocks in the field or walking or riding beans in a buggy or on a bean bar. Every harvest he would help haul wagons and put the grain into the bin and also helped with fall tillage.

Chad is very knowledgeable and passionate about farmland sales and strives to help his clients negotiate the best outcome for selling their assets. As said by broker Jason Smith, "At DreamDirt we are never satisfied, we can always do more, we can do better, we don't settle for average because we don't sell average assets. When it comes to representing their only home, a million or multi-million dollar farms or machinery collections you had better be serious and darn good."

When not selling farmland or farm assets you will find Chad in the timber. Chad is an avid outdoorsman enjoying deer, turkey, and pheasant hunting. "I'm truly blessed to have a job that puts me in the outdoors routinely to enjoy all of the beauty the earth has to offer."
