Reck Agri Realty & Auction

Dave and Chelsey Kolm, Big Springs, NE:

First and foremost, I would like to say "Thank you" for all the help Marc, Troy, and the ladies did on making our dream come true. It was a hard one. Reck Agri Realty had a listing by Lake Mac. My husband and I feel in love with it. With this came alot of sacrifies. We had to sell our family farm. It was the hardest thing that we have ever done. Marc and Troy helped us so much with everything and made it so easy. I don't know what we would of done if we did not use Reck Agri Realty for our auction on the farm and purchase of our new place. Hopefully you guys can stop by sometime and see the NEW KOLM FARMS. Thank you again and God Bless.

Bob Meinzer, Flagler, CO:
“Our farm had been in the family for 65 years so we had a strong sense of grief thinking we were selling our family legacy. Marc and his team understood what we were going through emotionally and made us very comfortable with our decision."
“We went through a thorough search of agents before we finally decided to go with Marc and his team. Ultimately, we were able to look Marc in the eye and feel a sense of trust and credibility. He says what he means and means what he says.”
“Marc delivers on his promises and is head and shoulders above everyone else.”
“Reck has a huge database to expose your property to a large number of potential buyers. The auction itself is both transparent and professional – no one leaves disappointed.”
“Reck Agri is very easy to work with and very instructive throughout the process so you know exactly what to expect. I also appreciated how Marc and the team are accessible anytime morning or night and are quick to return a phone call.”
“Initially, we weren’t thinking about selling by auction at all. After we were shown the success rate through auction and how Reck’s auction process is so unique, we knew it was the way to go.”
“Selling was hard so I was a little nervous on auction day. Marc wanted this to be a fun day and it was!”
“Marc is a unique professional with a unique skill. He had our best interests in mind the whole time. I highly recommend him and his top-notch team.”
“Marc presents himself personally as someone you can trust. He’s steady, confident, professional, and very prepared.”
“Our auction was as powerful as Marc promised it would be.”

Jean Branan, Longmont, CO:
“I recently sold land that was owned by my grandfather, then my parents. It was tough on me emotionally because I felt like I was betraying them. Marc guided me through it with great empathy.”
“I found Marc and his team easy to do business with. They’ve informative, polite, and very helpful every step of the way.”
“I was most impressed with how thorough they were. Marc knew everything there was to know about my land before the sale. He asked a lot of questions and works hard to get the answers he needs to represent the property.”
“Marc and his team know their reputations are on the line so they work extra hard to do it right. I really appreciated that.”
“I really didn’t know what to expect with the auction but was pleasantly surprised. There was an incredible sense of urgency on auction day – those who were in attendance were there to do business.”
“It was too emotional for me to attend the auction so I watched it online. I was nervous at first but once things got moving my heart started racing and it was very exciting!”
“Marc and his team are so reassuring. I knew I was in good hands.”
“I really felt a connection with Marc. He’s very honest and I felt he was going to portray my land as if it were his own.”
“Marc had my best interests at heart, not only to get the best price, but to make me feel comfortable and at ease.”

Barbara Weaver, Olympia, WA:
“The farm has been part of my family for over 100 years so it was tough to sell it. Marc was very empathetic and conscious of my feelings.”
“Even though I didn’t consider an auction right away, it was definitely the way to go. But after seeing the way Marc handles an auction, I wouldn’t even consider doing it with anyone else. Talk about integrity and honesty…“I was very impressed with how Marc marketed the property. The brochure was very detailed and he got the word out through radio, newspaper ads, direct mail flyers and the Internet."
“Marc explained the process so there were no surprises. He really made it simple.”
“I was apprehensive going in but when the auction was complete I was relieved and very thankful. Marc and his team do it right. They’re amazing!”
“I wouldn’t say this to Marc, but after seeing everything he and his team do, I don’t think they charge enough for their services.”
“Marc knows everyone. He has so many connections, which really helps him when it comes down to finding information on water rights, titles and more.”
“The way they do an auction is truly innovative. They use technology to put a new spin on an old idea and it works!”

Pauline Reker, Sidney, NE:
"It was my son who first suggested selling by auction. I looked at all my options and decided to attend one of Marc’s auctions to see what they were all about and I was sold.”
“Marc was very laid back and there was never any pressure. I really liked his approach of guiding you through the process so you can clear up any questions.” “Marc and his team were great to work with. Very accessible, returned calls promptly, and kept me informed along the way.”
“I was impressed how thorough things were. Marc contacted all the right people to learn about the property, went through well testing and soil maps – no stone was left unturned.”
“The auction itself was impressive. It started with the Pledge of Allegiance, which set a nice tone. The auction was well organized and once it got going, it really got exciting.” “Marc has a super team. They work so well together and made it all very enjoyable. I didn’t have to worry about anything.”

Steve O’Neal, Fort Collins, CO:
“Marc and his team take a better approach than anyone to marketing the properties they sell. They have a deep database to help get the word out and the materials they produce are very thorough with good visual aids. It’s all about creating a stir before the sale. That’s why so many people work with them.”
“The Reck Agri auction process is what brings top dollar to the land they sell. By parceling the land into sections, they’re able to drive up the overall price. Plus, everyone walks away feeling like they had a fair opportunity.”

Randy Constant, Chillicothe, MO:
“From the first meeting it was clear they wanted to know everything possible about my land. In fact, when they were done, the Reck team knew more about my land than I did. That made me confident that they’d be able to present my land in the best possible light and represent it well.”
 “The process itself was very educational. The Reck team explained everything so I knew what to expect. They were professional, polite and had incredible follow-up on every-thing they promised. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results.”
“Through modern marketing techniques, the Reck team gets the word out about a property by speaking to a much broader audience than most. They’re not afraid to think outside the box, which generates greater value by bringing in higher caliber buyers.”

Pete Dusbabek, Fort Collins, CO:
“When it was time to sell, I had a small window to get it done and I knew Reck Agri could get it sold in a timely manner. They put me at ease because of their long track record of successful auctions.”
“Selling by auction is the way to go. The whole market is sitting right there. They’ll tell you what your land is worth, plus the auction itself is very excit-ing.”
“I saw great value working with Reck Agri. They were respon-sive and answered my questions. They handled every detail, which gave me less to worry about. I would recommend them without hesitation.”
“Work with Reck Agri and your property will not be a secret. They do a great color brochure and promote the auction with radio, print ads and online. There’s no question the word will get out.”

I could not have hoped for a better experience and outcome than we had working with you, Troy, and the rest of your staff. I felt comfortable with our decision and confident in your expertise and ability. I’m so happy it worked out as well as it did for all of us. We are left with many wonderful memories of time spent on that land, and love and gratitude for what was handed down to us by our Grandparents and Mother.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Reck,
  I want to personally thank you for all the work you put in to make the Cannell Survivor’s Trust Auction successful last week. I was thrilled with the results and watched the auction with my daughter on the Internet. I think all the extensive advertising before hand help contribute to the high dollar amount we received.
  I also want you to note that I have received your notification of land sold before hand you were the one that made me realize that the price of land in Sedgwick County had gone up so drastically. You were the ONLY Realty that sent me any information on what was going on in Colorado!  I also talked with Bruce Marquardt who recommended you highly after I had decided to sell half of the land.
  Thanks also to everyone else in the office who worked on this sale.
Sincerely,
Monique Cannell

   I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for your very professional service.  We are so happy that we were referred to you by Lew Mehling.  His recommendation was absolutely on the mark. I could not believe the ease of doing this farm sale. I have sold approximately 15 properties in the western half of the US and I must say this was painless.  After our first meeting and I signed some basic paperwork, you did all the rest. You made it very easy. Your staff is very well versed on what they need to do and are very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
   The day of the sale your set up in the conference room at the Holiday Inn in Sidney was spectacular.  My brother and sister watched the sale on the internet from California since they couldn't attend. They were very impressed.  I didn’t know they were going to do that and when I called them to tell them the good news, they already knew it.
   Your advertising campaign and sales strategy was absolutely awesome.  I don’t ever use the word because I think it is overused, but I can’t think of another word to describe it. With your connections and skills I figure we almost doubled the value we thought the property was worth.
Thank you and your staff very much.

Re: Family Farm Auction
I did want to take an opportunity to formally thank your for all of your careful efforts on my behalf in arranging for and implementing the auction sale of my family farm. The sale came at a critical time, and you were most helpful getting my family and I through it. I know it wasn't a big sale for you, but you certainly made us feel like it was as important to you as it was to us. We are all most appreciative! If I can ever reciprocate in any manner a letter or call of reference or recommendation please don't hesitate to ask me. I would be happy to lend any assistance to you and your business possible. 
My very best regards,

Subject: post Sale comments
Here are some comments that I heard since the Sale.
1.  His background work in preparing for the sale was impressive.
2.  His advertising (brochures, colored pamphlets, etc,) was well spoken of by everyone.
3.  The actual selling process while it seems intimidating at the onset was well thought of by everyone I heard comment when it was over from the standpoint of knowing what was going on at all times and the ability to get involved until the gavel hit the table.  Several people who did not attend the buyers meeting commented they appreciated his explaining at the start of the sale the process even though it took some amount of time.
4.  The comment by some after the sale such as "If I was having a Sale I would probably want to talk to him about doing it" speaks volumes of the sale management and presentation.
5.  ...it was impressively well done....
I would definitely echo these thoughts and say as the Seller I was very appreciative of the work by the Reck Realty Team!

Subject: A thank you!
   Thank you very much for the great bag!  You certainly didn't need to do that as the grand sale price is reward enough for the "cost of working with you!"  My travel luggage is very similiar to the look of the Cabela's bag making this even more fun!
   Sounds like business continues to come your way!  Congratulations!  You earn it as I am sure others feel like me in that you made my land sale, as an  absentee owner, very painless. Thank you again!

“Reck Agri Realty & Auction conducted a professional auction of our property in Garden City, Kansas.  I received many compliments on the thoroughness of the detailed brochure that was prepared and distributed prior to the auction.  The auction itself was  conducted with integrity and decorum, giving opportunity for all bidders to participate.”
    Jim Hendrix, Haskell County Farms, General Partner

Reck Agri Realty & Auction

“When I originally saw the commission on the potential sale, I thought it was excessive.  After seeing the professionalism, attention to detail, hard work, and everything that was involved to put on this auction, i.e. color and detailed brochures, informational meeting, direct mailings, and how smoothly everything ran the day of the auction, I knew we had received a bargain.” 
    Curt Pilkington, Haskell County Farms, General Partner.

“We would like to acknowledge the outstanding job Reck Agri Realty & Auction did for us on our land auction. The timely and professional way that each and every process was carried out was innovative and imaginative. The newspaper coverage, direct mailings, and their web site brought in prospective buyers and the information that was requested was handled with a professional attitude that made us confident that we had chosen the best and we were represented accurately and precisely.  The sales brochures were outstanding!  The outline and dedication to correct details was another indication that we had the best, doing a job that few were qualified to do.”

Boell“Marc Reck of Reck Agri Realty handled the auction of 28 parcels of commercial properties and farm ground in Southern Kansas for the Bank. We had contacted several company’s to handle the sale and requested each to present to management their plan to sell the properties. Mr. Reck’s presentation convinced management that the public auction process would most likely provide the best financial result. Mr. Reck did a lot of research on each parcel consulting with the local FSA, the property owner and tenants to ensure the information in brochures, informational meetings and direct mailings were as accurate as possible.  On the day of the auction he provided detailed information on how the auction would be conducted and had ample staffing to handle questions and ensuring all individual bidders the opportunity to participate in the auction process. The results were more than satisfactory to everyone involved.”
