“We charge the buyer or lessee a percentage of the deal,” Thompson said. “If you've got a price in mind per acre, we will add in 1 percent to 10 percent fee on to that and then list it at that price. If you want an offer to be made, we will present the offer to you that was given to us and our percentage would come out of that. Basically, if you're not completely satisfied with the deal, you don't have to accept it.”
Thompson said he encourages owners to do their due diligence on possible deals and involve an attorney if they need to.
Oklahoma attorney Terry Stowers, director of the Coalition of Oklahoma Surface and Mineral Owners, said the website looked like a good way to list mineral rights for sale for owners who might not know where to start.
“Anything that might give you more exposure is a good thing,” Stowers said.
Stowers also advised owners to check out other organizations, such as the National Association of Royalty Owners, for advice and information. The association's website is at naro-us.org.
