Russell Waymire, Agent
In the mid 70’s, Russ started farming nut and row crops in Kings, Kern, and Madera counties. In addition, from 1998-2006, he was a grower relations consultant for the pistachio industry, helping farmers from Bakersfield to Chico. In September 2009, he was honored to be named the “Agriculturist of the Year for Kings County.”
Twenty-five years ago, Russ started working in commercial real estate to help farmers reduce the impact of capital gains taxes on the sale of farmland. He joined Hoekstra & Associates to help farmers throughout the Central Valley retire and receive steady monthly incomes as good or greater than they ever did as a grower, and they no longer need to get their hands dirty.
