Growing up on a farm in Stearns County, Minnesota, later owning and operating 486 acre dairy and grain farm and also operating a multi-company seed business gave me a great deal of experience working with farmers. In 1992 I sold 300 acres of my land including the 60 cow dairy and began selling farm real estate and recreational properties. I credit my success with my ability to work with and think like a farmer. Selling your farm is not an easy decision, with my 18+ years of experience I can help you decide which method would be the best way to sell your real estate. Whether that is through a conventional sale, auction, or sealed bid auction, we can help you make the right choice for your farm. I have also helped farmers decide if a Tax Deferred 1031 Exchange is right for them. Experience, Knowledge of land values, our large list of potential buyers, and my 18 years as a member of The Realtors Land Institute gives not only me, but all of us at Hughes Real Estate and Auction Service the best advantage when selling your real estate.
"On December 3, 2021 Hughes Real Estate and Auction Service sold our farm in Torning Township for $10,100 per acre (plus Buyer’s Premium), a near record for Swift County. During the entire process of listing the farm Jesse explained the options and processes in clear and understandable terms. The farm was advertised extensively over a wide area via different media. He had an extensive knowledge of the property, especially productivity and drainage – that was helpful. If you are thinking of selling your property, I recommend Hughes Real Estate and Auction Service without reservation."Jerry Pahl
"We cannot say enough good things about Jesse. He helped us sell our farm land through an online auction process, and went above and beyond answering questions.

"Hughes Real Estate went above and beyond in helping us get our aunt's property prepped and ready for sale. This included a house in town and farm land. They provided invaluable local expertise and were very professional and friendly. My family would recommend Hughes Real Estate with no reservations."Family of Millie H.
"Our family sold a fairly large parcel of farmland in Stevens County, Minnesota. It was a complicated property with different land characteristics and an existing CRP contract. We were very pleased with Jesse's representation. He had a lot of expertise and guided us through the different dynamics and options for selling the property. We highly recommend him. "Jim J. and Karen H.

"Jesse was our real estate agent when we decided to sell our home. He came to our first appointment well prepared with area statistics on houses for sale, houses similar to ours and helped us easily come up with a selling price. Jesse was able to answer all our questions with accurate information. He listed our house on a Thursday morning and had the first showing two days later. This showing resulted in the sale of our home. Jesse made the whole purchase and closing process very easy for us by directing us through each step in a very timely manner. Jesse is part of a national real estate system (Multiple Listing Service or MLS) that allows his sales to go out on the internet and other real estate agents can set up showing of the property. It is like paying one real estate agent but getting the benefit of many others. Shawn and I highly recommend Jesse."Shawn and Holly Rodahl Benson, MN
