Oklahoma Mineral Owners,

Have you ever tried to contact a company landman or lease buyer and never hear back from them? Of course, your answer is "yes." I recommend you email them the following..."have you given up on this <project/lease/trade?" This phrase triggers an immediate reaction in the recipient. Research has shown that loss aversion drives action more than the desire for gain. Or, call Berlin at 918.984.1645 if you would like to sell your oil and gas minerals. We will always answer and listen to your initial offer. What other negotiation tactics have you found to be the most useful?

More to follow,

Berlin
