Auction Experience

Since 1952, Herron Auction & Realty is the first company that comes to mind when buying and selling agricultural real estate across, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.  With four generations of knowledge passed down through our company, Herron Auctioneers are the “go to” specialists for selling land and farm at auction.

Through continuing education and actual field experience Herron Auction & Realty has maintained one of the highest auction sale rates in the country.  We have worked and partnered with personal representatives, trustees, stock holders, partners, CPA’s, attorneys and heirs to liquidate land, farms, and rural properties.  We’ve helped settle estates and many other complicated situations.

Our enthusiastic farm events are attended by hundreds of bidders throughout the region as-well as thousands across the world online.  More sellers choose Herron Auction & Realty because of our high prices and 99% closing rate.

When you are ready to sell something as important as land, our most valued commodity today, you need an expert you can trust.  Herron Auction & Realty is knowledgeable, honest, and a company you can depend on.

At Herron we work hard to ensure a fair, unbiased transaction for both our clients and their buyers.  We strive to be respectful, sensitive and straightforward with our clients in every situation we encounter.  Our highly qualified staff is known for their ability to handle any situations professionally and maintain confidentiality in all client affairs.
