Ben's Biography :
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.”

Hunter, Fisherman, Outdoorsman, & Wild Game Cook
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.
