Why The Wings Group

There is always something that sets great companies apart from good companies. It’s understanding that what you’re selling—in our case, land—is more than just a product. It’s greater than the sum of its parts. It’s an experience, a lifestyle, a place for making memories.

In a world where relationships have gone digital, our clients will tell you that we are accessible and authentic. We know that the natural world that surrounds us is something to be revered and taken care of. If there is one achievement we’re most proud of as a company, it’s pairing land with people who desire to leave a legacy of good stewardship.

It’s been our privilege to represent some of the most rare and outstanding properties across the southeast.

Elliott’s love of outdoor pursuits fuels his deep knowledge and experience for land management, while his significant deal volume, and early career and education in finance (BA from the University of Georgia) support his expertise in real estate values and investment analysis that clients depend on.

Client Testimonials

John Dicken, Buyer

“I got to know Elliott Davenport several years ago when he helped me with some wildlife management plans on my farms in west Tennessee and ever since I have considered him a friend. Recently, I was involved with Elliott in a transaction where my partner and I purchased a really interesting duck hunting property that he knew about off market. I can say without hesitation Elliott is by far the most professional and knowledgeable person I have ever dealt with regarding agricultural or recreational property. He provided everything we required during the pre-purchase phase and more importantly he has been extremely helpful after the purchase. I highly recommend Elliott and The Wings Group.”

Hart Farm

Witt Stephens, Buyer

“I had been looking for the right property for several years and Elliott's insight into the quail plantation market and his ability to think strategically was instrumental in helping me find our new place. Elliott was helpful on all technical aspects of contracting and due diligence. His post closing help with hiring and contractors made the process much easier as well.”

Blue Springs

Mike McIntyre, Seller

“Positioning a high-end luxury farm in the market to maximize seller value requires a special set of skills along with a true understanding of the audience. Having a national presence and the knowledge of how to market into that audience is key to executing a successful transaction. Elliott Davenport and his team of seasoned professionals are uniquely qualified to deliver these results. They exceeded our expectations! We could not be more thrilled with their performance.”

Kris DeLoach, Seller

“THANK YOU for helping us with the sale of our farm. I followed your listings (and sales!) for a few years before we finally decided to list and knew in my heart that The Wings Group was going to be a good choice for helping us find the right prospects for our property. Obviously that proved to be true. I commend you and your entire staff for the excellent job you did in representing us and our special place in the mountains. The video and photography were beautifully done and I'm sure helped inspire many families to come take a look. Also, thank you for being there right up to the end to make sure we were well represented at the closing.”

Persimmon Valley Farm

John Gottwald, Buyer

“For several years, I have been visiting the Red Hills as a club member and a lessee on two wonderful places while considering a purchase in the area. Elliott Davenport provided invaluable guidance over those years. His knowledge of the area, market, people and subtleties that differentiate each opportunity were invaluable to me. Most unusual perhaps was his patience and blunt honesty. Real estate people tend to be motivated to secure transactions…turnover. Elliott was very patient and steered me away from mistakes, mistakes that I would have greatly regretted, but he would have benefited from significantly. He genuinely has his client’s best interest in mind. Rare these days, but surely the foundation for a great career.”

“Selling a cherished family sporting property is a deeply emotional decision and who guides you through that process is critical. Elliott Davenport was the difference maker for my family, and his experience was invaluable. His niche expertise in sporting properties and his knowledge of southern traditions uniquely qualified him as best in class. With a superior marketing platform and presentation, Elliott guided us through the entire process with the knowledge, experience, and wisdom of a true trusted advisor. I know of none better and our experience could not have been more professional and rewarding.”

Gil Schafer III, Seller

“Having spent the last 18 months immersed in the process of (successfully) selling a large family sporting property, I can’t imagine going through it without Elliott Davenport. His incredible knowledge of the market, deep understanding of and appreciation for our land, thoughtful and resourceful guidance throughout the process, tenacious attention to detail, and his collaborative approach with our on-site land management staff was nothing short of invaluable. He came to us highly recommended by fellow landowner friends, and now it is easy to see why. I and my family would not hesitate to recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone.”

John Sibley, Seller

“Elliott was a delight to work with and always diligent and professional. I particularly liked how he stays the course through the inevitable twists and turns of a land transaction. He has a gift for getting the difficult deal across the finish line.”

Howard Love, Seller

“Having been in our family for 70 years, selling Loveridge was a big decision for our family and we needed the right person to walk us through this process. Elliott Davenport has exceeded our expectations and represented our family very well through this sale. His depth of knowledge for the Red Hills, his critical thinking, intimate understanding of the market, and honest approach has made this process very pleasant and rewarding for us. Simply, he gets it and that has served us very well.”

K. Mitchell, Buyer

“My wife and I wanted to find more than just a “piece of property” as a getaway for our family. We wanted a place that could be a source of respite, lifelong memories, outdoor recreation, and geographically close-by – all into one. Ryan did a great job hearing those needs and sourced us a beautiful farm that met our criteria and then some. When it came to the back-end of the buying process, Ryan did a great job guiding us through all the nuances when purchasing a farm. He was attentive, highly engaged, and solutions-oriented the entire time. All of this together created a seamless and enjoyable experience. We are very excited to enjoy our new farm – thank you, Ryan!”
