About Luke

Located in SE Wisconsin, Luke became a land specialist because he believes land is the ultimate investment. Beyond a strong history of annual appreciation, there are many ways to make a return on investment off of land. Unlike the stock market, land owners have some control over the value of their investment. Luke enjoys identifying small, but impactful enhancements that maximize a property’s potential and desirability. Originally from the western Illinois, Luke was raised in the big buck factory known as the Golden Triangle. From a young age, you could find him with his Dad commercial fishing the Mississippi River or pheasant hunting the fields of Iowa. Today, Luke’s passion remains all things hunting and fishing, which only fuels his infatuation with land investment. It allows outdoor enthusiasts to pursue their passion while investing smartly. Luke has a bachelor’s degree in Biology and an MBA with an emphasis in Marketing. As a LandGuy, Luke is looking forward to using his education and love for land to help you find your ultimate investment and maximize your return.

Testimonials

After 52 years of developing a parcel of land in Iowa County into something very special and as we were approaching our mid to late 70s, it became obvious that we could no longer maintain the property at the level it required. After reaching the very difficult decision to sell our property, we reached out to the LandGuys. And, we are so happy that we did. Within 24 hours of contacting them, Luke Wessel and Justin Bernklau met with us at our home. We were drawn to Luke and Justin immediately. They are both very likable and knowledgeable fellows. Within a couple of hours, they too realized they had something very special to work with. 

Justin, the media guy, spent portions of 5 days on our property taking many photos inside, outside and with the use of a drone, was able to put together a video that brought tears to our eyes. Justin captured totally the essence of what our property is and was able to showcase it perfectly. Six days after being listed and the video going online, the property sold at asking price with no contingencies. There was so much activity that Luke and Justin were in daily contact with us, sometimes several times a day. 

Luke and Justin were very reassuring and helped us feel confident in each step of the process. We had several showings leading up to accepting the final offer. We would certainly recommend that anyone with rural property to sell should contact LandGuys, Luke Wessel and Justin Bernklau.

We think we hit the jackpot with these two people.”

“Luke was a great agent for our purchase of this home and associated properties.  He was very knowledgeable of the house and property, was always prompt in answering questions about the sale, and interacted with the sellers to quickly obtain information related to this purchase.  Luke was always on time for the appointments with him at the property, and  was a pleasure to deal with. He provided so much information to us via email as we had several such interactions with him.  Our bottom line is that this was a very good experience, and we would be happy to work with Luke again.

“I had an excellent experience working with the LandGuys in purchasing property in Richland County, Wisconsin in May 2023. Both Justin and Luke knew what I was interested in that would fit my needs for building a home. They had identified several properties that might fit may needs and upon visitation Luke was extremely helpful in helping to pick the most desirable lot to purchase. Would highly recommend using their services in finding property.

“This team did a great job when we were looking to buy land in Southwest Wisconsin (Crawford County).  Justin and Zack are very responsive, immediately jumping in to get more details on a property listing and offering to come walk the property with me the very next morning.  Once we decided to make an offer, Justin and Zack moved quickly to prepare the offer and do everything to give it the best chance of success.  During the buying process, they provided quick, helpful responses and guided me through the closing process to a successful purchase.  Highly recommend this team!

I met Luke and team at the Turkey spring. I was looking for land in SW Wisconsin. Luke was able to meet me at the land the very next day, UTV ready, and happily spent two hours showing us every corner of a beautiful 139 acre property. Of course we had to buy it! Luke and team were responsive throughout the transaction and even afterward. I highly recommend these guys!

“I met with Luke after seeing his sign on a different property. We had a great initial conversation in which he really listened to what I was looking for in a piece of hunting property. After taking some notes, Luke told me wouldn’t be contacting me unless it met the criteria we had discussed. Over a few months, we looked at a couple of pieces that weren’t quite what I had in mind but they were close. He called me with another piece of property and I happened to be out of town. The day after I got back we had an appointment to look at the property. It checked all the boxes we had discussed and after a short negotiation with the seller I purchased the property. I would recommend Luke to anyone looking for land. He cares, is very responsive, and an all- around great agent!

“The whole experience provided by Luke from the first showing to the closing was top notch. With WI weather the day we saw the land it was near blizzard conditions and he was there to show us around via side by side. Later that day it cleared and we were able to see the land again with no snow and sunshine. He was always responsive to all our questions and if he didn’t know the answer immediately he found the answers for us quickly. With this being our first land purchase we had several questions and Luke took the time to make sure we were always comfortable throughout the whole process. He is someone I would highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed with his honesty and willingness to work with you

“When we interviewed Lukas, he arrived with a prepared sales budget and comparable farm properties. He was straightforward, articulate, and professional. When we were ready to sell, we were astounded at how he quickly he found a buyer and we were notified within a week. We would definitely recommend Lukas Wessel.

“We met Luke in 2021, when we were contemplating a move. At the time we were not exactly sure what and where we wanted to buy and when we would sell. This put Luke in a challenging position – one that required patience and time… a lot of time. We looked at properties in two different states – and instead of sending us on our own (and collecting a referral fee) he met us places that required overnight stays. I’ve bought and sold over a dozen homes and NEVER met a realtor willing to do this. Ultimately, we found the perfect property – and Luke went above and beyond to ensure that our offer would be accepted. Next we needed to sell our home. In a sellers market, realtors can do less and still make things happen. Once again, Luke went above and beyond – including the unfortunate reality of dealing with unethical and inappropriate behavior of several others along the way. And just look at the drone video he and his team put together – it was truly amazing! Ultimately, Luke got us more than 100k over our asking price. After representing us on both ends (buyers and sellers), Luke is far more than our realtor – he is now family. Let’s face it, realtors are everywhere… but truly good ones are not. If you want to work with someone who is patient, accommodating and a genuinely great human who will work hard for you, then Luke Wessel is your person! A big THANK YOU to Luke and the LandGuys team!

“Luke made selling and purchasing a new home very easy and pleasurable. He has a great personality and is very easy to work with whilst being professional and responsive. He was spot on with current market prices and new the market well. The Land Guys video and photo’s done on our 10-acre horse property were outstanding and better than any I’ve seen from other realtor services. We would definitely use them again and have already recommended Luke to friends.

“Luke is professional and personable. He was open and honest about the properties. He answered all questions, and if he did not have the answer, he took the time to find it. He was also helpful in providing information about potential renters and other resources. I would highly recommend him to either a buyer or seller.

“Luke handled our purchase of a rural property with professionalism, tact and a sense of humor. He patiently walked us through a complicated 1031 exchange transaction that required a good working knowledge of farming, real estate and red tape. His willingness to put the seller and buyer on the same page was greatly appreciated. I would recommend him to any potential buyer/seller without reservation.

“Luke Wessel got ahold of my property, created a listing and in short order we had a sale. I had it listed by owner for years with poor results. What do you have to lose? Luke is a straight shooter and a pleasure to work with.
