Established as a forestland brokerage company in 1989, fountains land has grown to become one of the most respected pioneers in timberland marketing, multiple-use property transactions, and land consulting services.
Comprehensive services and expertise
Our core strengths are rooted in nearly 20 years of land marketing and consulting experience, with services provided by a team of marketing specialists educated in the fields of forestry and natural resource management. Our brokerage and consulting services are further enhanced by the integration of resources provided by our affiliated forestry/land appraisal and GIS businesses. These intercompany relationships enable fountains land to offer clients a comprehensive suite of services and expertise that is unique to the land brokerage industry.
With more than $350 million in property sales since 1989, fountains land (formerly fountains real estate) is one of the leading real estate brokerage firms in the eastern US specializing in the sale of forestland and rural acreage. We add value to every transaction by providing landowners with unparalleled access to US and international buyers through our extensive contacts that reach deep into our UK-based parent company, fountains plc.
