Area Sales Manager – Farmers National Company

Farmers National Company | David Whitaker

David grew up immersed and involved in agriculture and started his career off by attending Missouri Auction School in 2008. He then acquired his real estate license in November 2010 where he served as a real estate broker for his company. David gained valuable experience as a contract auctioneer and participated in a variety of different auctions nationwide. He is active in the Realtor Land Institute, National Auctioneer Associations and a number of State Auctioneer Associations. .
After auctioneering for years and selling millions of dollars in assets, David honed in on his passion for selling farmland and enjoys the challenges that come with it. He and his wife Ann started the auction and real estate company, “Whitaker Marketing Group”, specializing in farmland and fundraising. His passion and stage presence has lead him to numerous championship titles and a World Auctioneer Spokesman of the Year title. In June of 2020, David took on the role of the Area Sales Management position for Farmers National Company and so all real estate transactions will go through them. Whitaker Marketing Group will continue to specialize in farm equipment auctions as well as fundraising, but if you can spell it…we can sell it.

David and his wife, Ann reside and farm outside Ames, Iowa with their two sons, Colton and Caleb.
