We Sell Farm & Ranch Real Estate...Differently

Why Reck Agri Realty & Auction is the Right Choice

Property For Sale

Have you ever been in the position to sell property due to complicated circumstances like these?

  • A farm property has been in the family for more than 50 years, one parent or both have passed away, a son or daughter and family remain on the farm, the other siblings have moved away for one reason or the other, and now it’s time to settle the estate. The sibling on the property wants to continue to operate the family farm, and the other siblings would like their inheritance.
  • Mom and/or dad are aging and need money to support their later years, and their children have no interest in returning to the farm. Is it prudent to pass property or cash onto the family before death?
  • A couple is divorcing and need to sell property as part of a divorce settlement.
  • All or part of a property needs to be sold to pay off debt, or to dissolve a partnership, LLCi, corporation, and/or trust. 
  • Aging siblings who own property together want to sell before something happens to a sibling(s) and the remaining sibling(s) would have to deal with their heirs.
  • Or, with land values on the rise, you may simply be asking yourself, “Is it time to sell?”

At Reck Agri Realty & Auction, we’ve helped guide individuals and families through situations like these and other complicated, real-life scenarios by thoughtfully addressing common denominators such as: 

  • A lack of experience and expertise in handling these situations.
  • No exit plan, estate planning and/or partnership agreement.
  • Potential conflicts between family members, partners and bankers.
  • Strong emotions related to liquidating a property that has been in the family for years and/or a property that has served as a source of livelihood.
  • The need for a reliable personal representative, trustee or partner in a fiduciary position to settle an estate; abide by the terms of the trust; dissolve a partnership, LLC corporation, and/or trust; and still maintain relationships among family members and/or partners.

All too often, people faced with making decisions like these procrastinate out of frustration, emotional ties, and/or lack of knowledge and direction. Because we relate to our clients, we understand that “the hardest decision is making the decision," we’re here to ensure your immediate sense of relief when you know you’ve made the best decisions for your unique circumstances.

We may not know your personal history, or the emotional ties you may have to a specific property, or the individuals involved…but we’ll work with you to solve your unique challenges, and we’ll help you navigate the decision process for selling agricultural real estate. Then, once your mind is made up, we’ll help you execute on your decision as efficiently as possible.

In other words, at Reck Agri Realty & Auction, we have the Experience and Proven Results you need, surpassed only by our Integrity.

As our client, you can count on us to be respectful, sensitive and straightforward with you at all times. Our qualified staff is known for being easy to work with, and for their abilities to handle any situation professionally, build consensus, and maintain confidentiality in all client affairs.

Our hands-on, common-sense approach; our experience, proven track record and strong work ethic; and our innovative selling process accomplish these goals, and deliver value and options that others can’t.
