We’re happy to announce that Ben Gardiner has joined Reck Agri Realty & Auction as a Sales & Broker Associate. He is specializing in selling farm and ranch real estate throughout the tri–state area. Ben has been a licensed appraiser for over 12 years and has extensive knowledge and experience in ag real estate, having spent 11 years at Premier Farm Credit.
Ben has a strong work ethic and prides himself on being straightforward and approachable. A native of northeast Colorado, Ben grew up on his family’s farm near Peetz and continues to be involved in the operation whenever an extra set of hands is needed. He’s a graduate of Colorado State University with a degree in Ag Business and serves as President of the Colorado Chapter of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers (ASFMRA). Ben and his wife, Elizabeth, have three children and live near Sterling.
Brenda amazes us every day with her keen attention to detail. She’s been an integral part of Reck Agri since 1993 and her many responsibilities include database & file management, property research, contracts, internet bidding, and property closings. Put simply, she gets things done quickly and accurately – two traits our clients love about her. Prior to joining us, Brenda worked as a legal secretary for seven years at a local law firm. She was raised on farm/feedlot operation near West Point, Nebraska, and farming is still part of her life as she and her husband, Tom, raised four children on their farm near Iliff, Colorado. In her free time, Brenda likes to read, sew, watch movies, and go for walks.
Brenda is one smart cookie. It might have something to do with being an accomplished high school and college educator for over 20 years, most recently serving as Department Chair of the Business Division at Northeastern Junior College. To her credit, she has a long list of awards, honors and publications that prove she knows her stuff. Brenda takes her vast experience to Reck Agri where she is responsible for advertising, social media and marketing. Not to mention serving as the office grammar cop. Having lived on a farm homesteaded by her great-grandfather, ag is in her roots. Brenda earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Northern Colorado and her Master of Education degree at Colorado State University. Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sterling and have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, reading and working on craft projects.
