Texas & Oklahoma Real Estate Agent & Land Specialist Ben Jackson
Ben Jackson began selling Texas land for sale in 2015 and became a licensed real estate agent in Oklahoma in 2020. He specializes in representing rural land sellers and buyers looking to purchase land including unimproved land, timberland, ranches, farms, horse properties, recreational properties and hunting land for sale in Texas and Oklahoma.
“I left working for the government because I realized there was more opportunity in the private sector,” said Jackson. “I really enjoy working with people and helping them buy land. I share that same appreciation for land that my clients do. I also work with a broker who shares that passion and that’s why I joined his team. Carroll (Bobo) is the most respected rural land sales expert in the area.”
Rural Land Specialist & Realtree Land Pro in TX and OK
Ben lives with his wife, Frances and two children in Smith County in rural East Texas where they spend their free time exploring the great states of Texas and Oklahoma. While he hunts most anything, Whitetail Deer, turkey and Elk hunting are at the top of his list.
Jackson hunts deer, duck, dove, squirrel, elk and hog and loves chasing turkeys in the spring. His favorite memories are made while hunting with his family and friends. Hours of planning occur before hunting seasons open with early morning scouting, working out, location observation, calling and archery practice.
While hunting is fun, Ben uses the time to teach his children good stewardship of resources through wildlife conservation, to share their hunting heritage and to show them how to process and cook wild game. It gets them outside with muddy feet and a full heart.

Carroll earned his real estate Sales License in 1982 and his Brokers License in 1986, beginning his long career as a sales associate in Tyler, Texas. In the early years he learned the business by selling houses. His people skills quickly qualified him to take over the company’s sales management position. In this capacity, Carroll took advantage of many of the training opportunities from sales techniques and management to business models and forecasting. Carroll is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying a lifetime of hunting, fishing and most importantly clay target shooting. He earned a place on the National Skeet Shooting Association All American 1st Team as early as 1976. In recent years he participates in National Sporting Clays Association Master Class competition. He has hunted birds across America, Mexico and Argentina. His fondest boyhood memories are hunting quail, ducks and small game animals in East Texas. Carroll’s personal goals have always been to incorporate his love of the outdoors with his business endeavors. In 1999 the opportunity to join United Country Real Estate came along. Moving back to East Texas, the land where he spent his growing up years, to sell country real estate was a dream come true. The agronomy of the area has transitioned in the past 50 years from truck farms and grain crops to pasture land for cattle. Today, with cattle prices down and drought conditions prevailing, the land is again transitioning to more recreational uses. Landowners are enhancing their properties with hunting food plots, fishing lakes, and nature preserves. Many buyers are investing in land to hold for the future. Carroll’s expertise with 1031 exchanges, wildlife preservation programs, and wetlands renewal programs give him a leg up when helping buyers and sellers reach their goals, dreams and desires.
Contributing, supporting, and making a difference for our buyers and sellers through accurate data entry, organizing and maintaining our contact management database, developing and managing our social media and digital marketing reach, and general office duties are just a few of the tasks Lynn takes on each day.
She scratches her creative itch—which also helps highlight our clients’ properties—by dabbling in graphic design. This comes in handy when marketing your farm, ranch, country home, recreational and hunting land through social media posts, flyers, postcards, signage, billboards, and email marketing.
Researching the latest Search Engine Optimization (SEO) best practices is one of her love languages. In our digital world, speaking SEO is the golden ticket to getting on page one of Google, and that’s where we strive to put a property listing when we represent someone who has land for sale in beautiful East Texas.
Some may call Lynn a computer geek because she enjoys discovering new technologies and learning how to leverage them to help our customers and clients sell or buy their very own piece of Texas rural land. And she’s cool with that label!
When she isn’t in the real estate office, you’ll find Lynn exploring the land with her hubby through kayaking, hiking, or digging in the garden. If she’s not outdoors, she’s whipping up some Tex-Mex in the kitchen or curled up with a good mystery.
