Realty & Auctioneers


Introduction to the Firm


HEARTLAND PARTNERS REALTY & AUCTIONEERS is a Real Estate and Auction company owned and operated by Mark and Linda Hamel, selling Real Estate and conducting auctions of assets in Nebraska and Kansas. Specializing in marketing agricultural, recreational, residential and commercial properties, HEARTLAND PARTNERS REALTY & AUCTIONEERS continually strives to maintain the reputation they have earned as one of the most progressive and credible Real Estate and Auction firms in the area. This reputation for "getting the job done" combined with honesty,

integrity and good public opinion form the foundation on which HEARTLAND PARTNERS REALTY & AUCTIONEERS is built. These credentials and this image combined with an aggressive, proven marketing plan as well as knowledge of the area and the buyers can result in the maximum price attainable for your assets. Being a native of southwest Nebraska and a second-generation Auctioneer, Mark Hamel continues the business that his father, Hollis, began in this area in 1948. Mark obtained

his Nebraska Real Estate License in 1991 and is a Licensed Real Estate Broker in Nebraska and Kansas. Having been an Auctioneer since 1973, he is also a member of both the Nebraska Auctioneers Association and the National Auctioneers Association. In December 2006 he completed the AARE Course offered by the National Auctioneers Association to receive the distinguished Accredited Auctioneer of Real Estate designation. The commitment to excellence through continuing education and progressive marketing strategies has made them one of the longest-running auction companies in the central United States today.




This level of experience in the marketing of Real Estate and Personal Property plus key contacts throughout the entire region combined with a proven, comprehensive marketing plan complete the formula that is utilized to achieve the maximum price possible in the sale of your assets.


Real Estate and Personal Property listings are posted on the HEARTLAND PARTNERS website as well as other related national websites and our Facebook page to maximize exposure of our clients’ assets to the broadest audience of buyers. An email of Auctions and Real Estate listings is also sent to an extensive list of potential buyers, lenders, attorneys, accountants, other Real Estate brokers and individuals that are a part of our network of contacts that has been developed over many years. Sale Bills / Brochures are Posted and Direct Mailed via a mailing list plus Radio and Print Media Advertising are utilized as well.



To accommodate buyers who cannot physically attend a live auction, live internet bidding and phone bidding are utilized during the live auction. HEARTLAND PARTNERS also offers timed Online-only auctions for both Real Estate and Personal Property. The objective is to maximize the exposure of each and every asset offered for sale, whether by live Auction, Online-only Auction or private treaty sale, to the broadest audience.  


Another very important ingredient, is the relationships formed with buyers and sellers throughout the period of the transaction. Maintaining these relationships after a sale has been completed can often lead to referrals that ultimately result in more prospective buyers as well as sellers.  


This combination of a solid, well-established Real Estate and Auction business makes an extremely effective catalyst for marketing assets in this entire region of Nebraska and Kansas to the global market.




Other equally important ingredients include having the equipment and personnel to conduct an efficient, successful auction whether outdoors on-site or indoors for the liquidation of both Real Estate and Personal Property assets.




A computerized clerking system provides efficient, accurate accounting of the entire auction from buyer registration to settlement of purchases for both the seller and the buyer. Upon the conclusion of a Personal Property Auction the seller may have the computer print-out of the assets just sold and the itemized breakdown of the sale showing the auction net amount to the seller. Upon the conclusion of a Real Estate Auction the seller and buyer will both be provided with all the documents necessary as required by the Real Estate Commission for the transaction.




Quality people are another essential ingredient in the formula comprising a successful Real Estate and Auction business. Affiliated with HEARTLAND PARTNERS as Real Estate Sales Associates are Linda Hamel and Joslyn Wade. Auction Associates are Lana Demuth, John Howsden and Robby Brown. The combined experience of the team at HEARTLAND PARTNERS represents over 130 years. With nearly everyone on the team at HEARTLAND PARTNERS being native to the Southwest-Central Nebraska and Northwest-Central Kansas area, their knowledge of property and their expertise in this area is extensive and valuable to both sellers and buyers.


In a business transaction PEACE OF MIND is of paramount importance to both Seller and Buyer. The Professionals at HEARTLAND PARTNERS REALTY & AUCTIONEERS understand this and make PEACE OF MIND for All Involved a Top Priority.
