The synopsis of our experience is that we, either as individuals, or as a family would recommend and/or hire Jesse Hughes a heartbeat. He’s that good, and your experience with him will be top shelf from start to finish and beyond. He’s earned a glowing review from us and here is how;

After the passing of our parents, we 5 siblings were beyond fortunate, and inherited the family farm, the “home place” if you will, equally. For years we rented it out, but when the time came to pursue other options we knew we needed help because truthfully, there was never going to be a day where all 5 of us woke up one morning and would all be on the same page in agreement as to how we should proceed. Research proves selling is a stressor – now factor in that we were ending ownership of our roots. So while there was no way to avoid the stress and emotional aspects of it, we did know that at all costs we did not want have to use the legal system and let someone we didn’t know decide what happened.

We started by sitting down with a few realtors. Never found one we all felt comfortable with. We then visited another land auction company. While we liked the idea, when we asked questions, the answers were so long and drawn out we were still confused – kind of like asking someone what time it is and they tell you how the clock was built. Not a good fit for us.

Then we met Jesse Hughes. In retrospect, we probably grilled him hard, but he shined. He didn’t promise us the moon and the stars. He didn’t pretend the process would be quick and easy. He did, however, promise he would help us stay the course and reach an outcome that was acceptable to all. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. Here’s what Jesse does: he always keeps your best interest a priority. He is honest. He listens, he answers questions as thoroughly as he can, and he doesn’t rush you to make a decision. He has the ability to tell you that an opposing point is valid, and does it in such a way that even if you don’t like hearing it, you accept it. When asked for an opinion or direction, he gives you options and ALWAYS respects that the decision(s) is yours, not his, to make. And the man has the patience of Jobe. Facilitating the sale of our home place took a few years from start to finish. If he ever became frustrated or fed up, he never once showed it. While not ever our intent to be difficult, 5 adults with 5 opinions can be kind of like navigating a land mine. Jesse guided us all though it and we came out on the other side in a better place. We are grateful beyond words to Jesse and his ability to facilitate a closure none thought was possible. Hire Jesse, and you’ll understand what we mean.

Thanks Jesse!!

Success Stories

"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

"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
