With the goal of building a sustainable portfolio of timberland that produces regular income, I have worked with Edwin for several years and engaged in multiple transactions. In 2019, an opportunity emerged in which a 1031 tax deferred transaction would be the best solution. Edwin advised me throughout the process and provided guidance on timing, identification of properties, and execution of the transactions. His excellent judgment and professional competence were critical to the successful outcome that was achieved. I have found that Edwin is uniquely qualified due to his understanding of the land market combined with his depth of knowledge of timber management. His sense of fairness for all parties and his level of integrity sets him apart as a trusted advisor.

We have worked with Edwin Orr of TMMRE on the sale of several properties and have been more than pleased. These sales presented some unique challenges and complications – some of which were surprises, and Mr. Orr worked tirelessly to find a way to navigate the problems and bring about a successful end. He is knowledgeable, professional and straightforward. He kept us informed about developments in the sales process and offered solutions for the problems that arose along the way. We are continuing to work with him on the sale of an additional property and would recommend him without hesitation.

Edwin recently handled the sale of 64 acres of Durham County land for us. Our cousin referred us to Mr. Orr and he gave an honest (and higher than expected) estimate of the value and we listed it with him, fully expecting it to take many months to sell. He began actively marketing it immediately and we received 2 offers in less than a month. After negotiating with the buyers we sold for nearly our asking price and closed in just a few weeks. Honestly, I didn’t see the value of paying a realtor to handle it, until we worked with Orr. I’m convinced that he was worth every dime.
If you’re looking for large tracts of land for timber, farming or hunting, Edwin can find it! He helped me locate the perfect tract of land for my business which now has grown to the largest operation of its kind in NC. Can’t thank him enough.

I’d like to thank you for working so successfully with our family on the sale of our land. The decision to sell was a difficult one for me, but I’m satisfied it was the right one to make. I’m very glad you were the man chosen to lead the process. I was kept informed during each step made and especially enjoyed looking at your website which included photos and description of our land. Again, thank you for all of your hard work in selling the land.

We have had an extremely good experience working with Mr. Orr. We are so delighted that he was able to get top dollar for us, at least twice what we thought it might be worth and he found a buyer for us in a matter of a few weeks. The whole transaction was a breeze for us. We highly recommend Mr. Orr for anyone needing his services.

Thank you for all your hard and diligent work. I truly did not think I would see this day come in my lifetime! With all the complications, I’m sure you can see why! It has been a pleasure working with you. Go out and have a nice dinner tonight. You have earned it.

I want to point out the single-minded focus and professionalism of Mr Orr and TMMRE. I think the family had lost faith in NC realtor society due to past experiences. Finally let me comment that all of the sellers feel that you have done masterful work to bring this to a close. Thank you again.

You’re number 1 with me!” I have trusted Timber Marketing & Management with all of my forest management work for over 10 years now. Edwin keeps providing sound forest management advice and always produces excellent prices on my timber and land sales.
We appreciate your diligence and professionalism in handling the sale and the closing process for my land in Granville County.

“The sale of our tract of land was filled with surprises and speed bumps expertly navigated by Mr. Orr. The most complex issue was a neighboring property’s rights to use the well on our land. Mr. Orr was able to resolve the issue by working with the owners of the neighboring property to purchase a small portion of our total tract. This rendered the remaining acres of our tract much more valuable and marketable to potential buyers, and we very quickly received a nice offer. Mr. Orr is very knowledgeable and professional and can’t come more highly recommended.”
As an absentee property owner, I am very concerned with the integrity and follow-up of the consultants I use. Edwin Orr has exceeded my expectations. They have been able to provide me with an excellent return on my timber properties, have improved the properties’ hunting characteristics, and have done so with little effort on my part. I wholeheartedly recommend TMMOC to others.
