Our Services

We’d be richer than Warren Buffet if we had a $1.00 for every-time someone asked us that question.

We have farmers and ranchers ask us that question even if they aren’t selling or buying land. We can’t predict what land prices are going to do, but neither can anyone else. At Total Auctions and Real Estate what we do is help land sellers find buyers through auction or private treaty, and we help buyers find land.

We are able to provide timely information and market comparisons to help sellers and buyers make a better decision. Two things separate us from other land auction companies. First, We know a lot of farmers, ranchers and investors. This allows us to reach out to people we know who have already told us they want to buy either to expand their operation or for investment purposes. Second, Andy Harr & Brad Swenson both take the time to sit down with you and hear what you’re thinking. It’s OK if you’re not ready to sell now. Maybe you’re just interested in knowing what your land is worth? We have a lot of land owners that want to sell by private treaty, because they don’t want to have a big auction. We sell a lot of land by private treaty.

We recommend you give us a call at 605-274-6500. We’ll sit down with you and let you ask us questions.

Andy Harr, BROKER, AUCTIONEER, OWNER of Total Auctions and Real Estate

Andy Harr

Broker / Auctioneer / Owner

Licensed Real Estate Broker in South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa & Nebraska
Certified Auctioneer

I attended auctioneer school in 2014 at Continental Auctioneer School, Mankato Minnesota. I obtained my Land Broker license in 2004. I grew up in Brandon SD. I love helping people buy or sell land because I love the beauty of the land and the history involved in all of it. It could be someone wanting to start their legacy with buying their first farm or someone wanting to sell a farm or ranch that has been in their family for over 100yrs. The story behind the land and the beauty of it is fascinating.

I currently reside just outside Sioux Falls with my wife Cathy (Engel) from Chamberlain SD. We stay busy with our two kids Brody (12 yrs) and Finley (8 yr). With over 15 years experience in the Real Estate industry I have handled numerous transactions from the large Farm Sale to the $100,000 first time home. Listening to customer needs are my number 1 priority. I have a get it done attitude and would love to help YOU with any of your Real Estate or Auction needs. Call me at 605-201-1559

Jason Bormann

Broker Associate / Owner

I grew up in the small town of Stickney, South Dakota and graduated from Augustana College (Now Augustana University). Growing up in an Ag banking family along with insurance and real estate, I have always enjoyed real estate from a young age riding along with grandfather on projects. I am a partner of Total Auction and Real Estate along with being a co-owner of IT Outlet a computer hardware firm that was started 10 years ago this fall.

My wife of 15 years and I have 3 girls together (Geneva 9, Josephine 6, and Cecilia 1.5), so we stay very busy and needles to say, I am very out numbered.
