Is there a way to block the sale of USA land if I am part owner of the property that was left in a will?

I was left 20% of a 40 acre ranch in California and the person in charge of the will who is also an equal part owner wants to sell the property for whatever he can get for it.

I would like to wait until the economy improves so we can get a better price for it.

Is there a way that I can file a paper to block the sale of the property, or at least a way for me to approve of the final price before the ranch can be sold?
.
There are 5 people named in the will and they each get 20%.

All five people including the person in charge of the will are equal owners of the property.

The property is not divided up, the will does state that the person in charge can liquidate the property as he see’s fit.

But I don’t think it is right for him to give it away dirt cheap!

Please help me find a way to stop this.

    Done deal.

    Besides the only way to prevent the sale is to give him his 20% out of your pocket. You can not deny anyone their inheritance.

    I see what the other person has said and the executor of the will can pretty much do as they please. . .that’s the hard part about doing a will and trusting someone to do as you please. But the other side of things is to do a sale I thought that all the owners had to sign. . .that would be you. Call a realtor and ask. Then call a second one and ask. See what answers you get.

    I really don’t see how he can legally sell it without all the other owners approving – I would get a lawyer quick
