Tyler, Texas -  Drake Real Estate is excited to announce the expansion of the Land Sales Division with the addition of our newest team member, Joseph Milburn, in the Greater Houston Area. 

“The market for farm & ranch properties has grown substantially and with the type of quality agents we have at Drake we are able to tap that market so as to deliver the highest level of service to our clients,” says Matthew Marshall, founding partner at Drake.

Prior to joining the Drake team, Joseph Milburn spent 10 years as a Petroleum Landman.  His knowledge of mineral rights and dealing with farmers and ranchers will serve as a valuable resource in land sales and acquisitions. Joseph resides in Washington, Texas, just east of Brenham and earned a B.S. degree from Texas A&M University.


“Buying land is unlike purchasing other assets. Each parcel of land is distinct,” explains Chris Wiesinger, Land Specialist with Drake. “Road maintenance, utility availability, water reservoir existence and depths, mineral plays, and more can all drastically affect pricing. We, at Drake, are pleased to add Joseph to our team as his experience as a professional land man will prove invaluable in this unique market. Joseph is local to the area and with his thorough understanding of deeds and record history, he is the go to agent for on market and off market property research.”


With offices in Tyler and Forth Worth, Drake Real Estate & Investments is a commercial real estate and investment firm offering expert advice and representation to clients in all of commercial real estate throughout northeast Texas and Western Louisiana.  Matthew Marshall, Drake Real Estate and Investments Broker, states “our agents are recognized as aggressive and skilled negotiators who strive to thoroughly under each client’s business goals, and assist them in meeting those goals through unmatched market knowledge”.  With unwavering integrity and superior work ethic, Drake’s Tyler office has brokered over $120 million since 2012!
