Support Your County and State Fairs!

Along with summertime comes county fair time. County fairs are food stands, tractor pulls, livestock shows, horse shows, fair queen pageants, local exhibits and amusement rides – something for everyone. They are a time for people to come together and show what it means to be a community. Fair week is a busy week for many families around the area as it takes a lot of work and time to put on a good fair and they take pride in doing so. County fairs also give FFA and 4H members a chance to display the projects they have worked hard on and a place to learn about selling their products and to experience what community spirit is.

As The Sun Sets on 2018

As the Sun Sets on 2018…

As 2018 comes to a close, it is time for reflection of the past year and to look forward to the goals we have set for 2019.  2018 was a big change for us.  Brenda gave up her 15 year partnership with the other owners of Buy A Farm and then Brad and Brenda joined Keller Williams Marquee. It was a successful move as 2018 brought the Property Peddler Auction and Real Estate Group to life and our new website was born:  Although we have changed names, we still occupy our office in Hecker at the same location.


The Keller Williams philosophy of growth and sharing has helped this be a fantastic year. We are so thankful for the opportunities we have had, the clients we have been able to serve, and the people whom we’ve met and who have helped us along the way. [ ]

How exciting.  We have made the change to the #1 name in Real estate – Keller Williams and will be working with the Keller Williams Farm Division.  We have been selling rural real estate for over 15 years now and many know us from our years of selling with another company. We are excited to launch our new auction and real estate group with the website and the fine people at Keller Williams Marquee.  We are now also putting focus on residential listings by having agents that will specialize in homes and knowing this market.

Benefits of a Licensed Illinois Real Estate Broker & Auctioneer

When you have a person that is licensed as both an auctioneer and real estate broker, you will find this person can add a different perspective and opportunity when selling your property.   There are situations when it is ideal to have an auction and other times when it is beneficial to do a listing.  Some of the factors that determine this include the urgency and price of the sale for the seller, time of the year, and if the property has a tenant.  It can be interesting to hear the opinion of someone that is experienced in both listings and auctions, and they can give you insight into what to do to be prepared for each type of sale.  It is also nice that a broker is legally allowed to negotiate outside of the auction if the situation deems necessary.  Many real estate brokers subscribe to many different resources that [ ]
