Real Estate

KSB’s real estate team has the experience and knowledge you need for representation in all forms of real estate transactions.  Whether involving a personal residence, business property, or farm or ranch land, this may be your most valuable and longest-lasting asset.  This is a significant transaction for both parties so you want to get it right.  Whether buying or selling, landlord or tenant, our real estate attorneys are prepared to guide and assist you through your transaction.


KSB’s real estate team has long served farm and ranch businesses of central Nebraska in the representation of real estate transactions.  Working with the taxation team, our real estate attorneys can guide you through a like-kind exchange if you need to sell property but want to avoid recognizing the gain for income tax purposes.  If you have an oil and gas interest, or other mineral right issues, the real estate team can assist you with transfer orders, reservations in deeds, and leases and other contracts.  The team has substantial experience in the ethanol industry, including assisting with the development of several ethanol plants.
