Congratulations to HomeLand Properties’ Andy Flack, ALC, in Huntsville, TX, whose sale of 3,132 acres in East Texas’ Tarkington Bayou was the month’s largest recorded land sale by REALTORS© Land Institute Members participating in the Lands of America Comparable Sales Program. Andy also recorded the month’s most sales, with 13 sold properties at a combined sales value of $13.9 million.
