Moody County, SD Land Owner

We really appreciated ALC for the interest they showed in us from the very beginning. We felt like family from the very first meeting with them. They worked with us and gave us great information to make wise decisions. Meagan and Jack were very personable but also very professional. They covered all the media basis very well to get the word out on the property we sold. The follow up after the sale was excellent. We had a wonderful experience with ALC. We would highly recommend them.

The Amdahl Family

Brookings & Hamlin County, SD Land Owner

To everyone at Advantage Land Company we want to thank you for your help in selling our fathers land at the time of his death. You went above and beyond in helping us and even found 17 acres that we weren't aware of. You got us the best price for the land that you could possibly have gotten and we can't thank you enough.


The family of James H Carter


Kingsbury County, SD Land Owner


This land had been a part of our family for 70 years. It was a difficult decision we made to sell the land. Jackson and the rest of the team helped us thru this difficult situation. Anytime we had questions, they were there to answer them. They were very honest with us. They did not put undo pressure on us to sell. It is with a great deal of appreciation for how and what the Advantage Land Co. did for us. They are a very professional company. Thank you!!

Duane & Janice Baer


Beadle and Brown County, SD Land Owner

On behalf of our family I'd like to thank the team at Advantage Land Co. for your efforts to market and conduct our recent land sale.  I'm especially appreciative of your tenacity in finding a buyer for the final parcel which did not meet our target at auction.  Jackson and Megan did very well keeping us updated on everything as the sale was prepared, the day of the sale, and closing.

The highly professional marketing materials created by Advantage Land Co. impressed us from the beginning.  It was an enjoyable experience to pull together historical information and pictures that were used to create our sales brochure.  I firmly believe that it is valuable for sellers to pass this history along to buyers to deepen their connection to the land.  It can be an emotional event to sell land which has been in the family for 3 and 4 generations.  Jackson and Megan were very sensitive to this and helped us through the process.  

I have no doubt that through Advantage Land Co. we received the best price possible on sale day!  The way the sale was promoted and completed exceeded our expectations.

Hatch Farms

Spink County, SD Land Owner

Actually, my experience can be summed up quite simply: I was very fortunate to call Advantage Land Company! I remember thinking that I wanted help with our land sale from someone NOT in Spink County, so as to get unbiased views. Being that my family was not exactly on board for a sale at the time, and considering I had hundreds of questions, and because we talked for a few years via phone and email
... your patience with me was amazing! Since you answered every question thrown at you with much aplomb, I think a trust was created which eventually carried over to my brothers and sisters also. Adding Jackson to the mix and realizing that your company is also a family concern, that made me feel even more confident that we were on the right track. We realize that a land Auction, and the work you do to get one off the ground, cannot possibly be easy! But it is safe to say that your family made it look like a walk in the park! Speaking for myself and the entire Walseth family: we thank you so much. The Auction was exciting, competitive, and professionally done. Obviously, your advertising plan attracted quality people and bidders.

Spink County, SD Land Owner

I would recommend to anyone selling land to contact Jackson Hegerfeld and Advantage Land Company before signing with anyone else. From the marketing, to the personal touch, to recommending the buyer’s premium on the sale, I could not me more satisfied. Every part of the process and the selling price exceeded my expectations. This is a very progressive company that understands the market and knows what it takes to maximize the net profit for the seller. 
We are very well satisfied with the way you handled the auction of the land. It was done real well. I have never been at a land auction. You certainly did a very fine job for us. Thank You!

Hand County, SD Land Owner / Farmer

I would like to thank Advantage Land for the excellent land sale you did for me. From the 1st day of talking with Jackson to a month after the sale, they have been in contact with me. I am really proud of how they handled the sale. The advertising was successful and the number of buyers that showed up was more successful. Considering the reserve price and what I got for it, it was a great day! I have been and will continue to recommend Advantage Land Company to anyone wishing to sell land. My hat goes off to Jackson, Megan, Chuck, Laura, & Fred. They are a great group of people to work with.

Brookings County, SD Land Owner

Advantage Land Company did an outstanding job marketing and auctioning our farm in 2013. I live in California and was concerned about the auction process. I had to trust Advantage Land Company would professionally appraise, market and deliver buyers to the auction. I am very impressed with their results. Jackson Hegerfeld secured a buyer at auction during a raging blizzard who paid significantly more than our expected sale price! I strongly recommend Advantage Land Company to anyone who wants to maximize the sale price of their property.

Miner County, SD Land Owner

My experience with selling a quarter of land in Miner County through Advantage Land Company was exceptional. Jackson Hegerfeld worked hard at getting the land title cleared and ready for auction. He met with me and explained how the process of selling the land and having the auction would work. He was always easy to contact for any questions I had and would call me frequently to let me know how things were going. He did a great job advertising the property and contacting people who would possibly be interested in purchasing the property. The day of the auction he did a great job auctioning the property for a price I was pleased with. I would recommend Advantage Land Company to anyone who was interested in buying or selling land. A very good company with exceptional people.

Stanley County, SD Land Owner

Thanks for completing a successful sale for Irene; she was very happy with the result! You and Megan gave us excellent advice and accurate estimates of the value of the land. You were able to get the right buyers to the auction with the budget we agreed on. I would recommend your company to anyone selling farmland in South Dakota.

Stanley County, SD Land Owner

Advantage Land Co. did a great job with the auctioneering of our property. They were very helpful with the 1031 process and were very knowledgeable and helpful beyond that.

We met them earlier at a land auction that we were the purchaser. They did such an outstanding job we knew they were who we wanted to sell our land. They are a family operation and treated us like family. We highly recommend them.

Turner County, SD Land Owner 

We would like to thank you once again for doing such a great of job selling my mother's property. We initially had a great deal of concern when we started the process of looking for an agent that would be trustworthy and reliable from so far away. The distance of California to South Dakota presented some controlling uncertainties which you promptly put at ease. It didn't take long to realize that indeed your fiduciary responsibility was with us the sellers and of great importance to UC - ALC. You kept due diligence from the inception of the sale and throughout closing. Without a hitch, the auction took place with excitement, convenience and positive results. Your recommendations and negotiations where extremely helpful and you always protected our interests as creatively realized with the buyer's premium. I wouldn't hesitate to repeat this process with you at the helm. I would like to recommend you and United Country - Advantage Land Company for real estate transactions to anyone wanting to sell or buy property in that area. The results were impressively quick, positive and professional. Thanks a million for your support & management and making such a good sale!
Sincerely yours,

We would like to take this time to personally THANK YOU for the terrific work you did on selling our property in South Dakota. You made the listing run very smoothly since we all live in California. The advertisements in the magazines, postcards, newspapers and internet were great. We loved watching the online auction and recommend that to everyone. It was a pleasure working with you Jackson and hopefully someday we can meet personally!

Jerauld County, SD Land Owner

Advantage Land Company just completed for me the sale of a half section of farm and recreational land in Jerauld County, SD. I learned of this company by receiving a postcard from them advertising some land close to mine. I contacted Megan Hegerfeld by phone about selling my land. She convinced me that I should sell by internet auction. This method of sale was new to me but I found it interesting. I agreed to this type of sale and Advantage kept me up to date thru every process of the auction and it concluded with getting a very fair price for the land. I found all the people to be very friendly, informative, and very professional in the work they do. I would recommend Advantage to anyone who is interested in buying or selling real estate.

It was a pleasure working with you at Advantage Land Company. Your friendliness and candor made it an easy and smooth process for our family. I must say you exceeded our expectations in every way. I would highly recommend and promote your niche with the online auctions. They are brilliant and have proved to be very efficient. I do believe they are the wave of the future. Thank you again for all of your hard work.

Stanley County, SD Land Owner

Congratulations again on the fabulously successful sale of my property. Believe me, there were a lot of farmers and ranchers walking out of that room calculating new land equity values for their land based on the new bar we set Saturday. While many were disappointed they could not afford to buy the land it was a nice consolation to think about what it means for their own net worth.
 You opened the door to a lot of great sales opportunities yesterday. I would bet even my brother, who has locked himself into a sale wishes he could get out of that and work with you all now!

Hyde County Land Owner

We were extremely happy with the internet sale of our tract of land in Hyde County, SD by Advantage Land Company, Brookings. SD. We were absentee landowners and were able to watch the internet auction without leaving our home. Advantage Land Company's promotion proposal was a very effective means of attracting prospective bidders.

The folks that we worked with are people of integrity and did exactly what they said they would do.
