Swift-N Sure-Auctions did a great job for us and our properties sold for more than expected.The advertising for our auction came in under budget! Everyone on their team was honest, knowledgeable, and efficient, and the whole process went smoothly. Ours was not an easy situation, we sellers were four siblings, one of whom died before the auction could be scheduled, 50% ownership of the properties was in a trust, and none of us were residents of Kansas. Swift-N-Sure Auctions helped us throughout the process, and I highly recommend this firm.

In October 2017, we contacted Swift – n – Sure Auctions and Real Estate to sell the Keith and Jeannette Rowland Family Farm. This dynamic team consists of Brian Landis, Melissa Landis, Victor Edelman and Hope Edelman. When we met with Brian Landis, he was diligent in giving us the different options to explore on selling the family farm. He made sure we were comfortable in our decision. The Swift –n – Sure team complements each other in every aspect, from the beginning stages such as advertising the property, title searches, contacting and responding to interested potential buyers and conducting an open house before the auction through to the end of the process by having as many potential buyers as possible at the auction. Melissa and Hope were instrumental in setting up the room and processing the bid packets to ensure a smooth auction process. Melissa’s talents were shown with a terrific slide show of the Rowland Family Farm. Victor is an exceptional auctioneer and is very knowledgeable regarding real estate issues. Victor remained at our side to ensure the closing process went through as smoothly as possible.
In addition, the team understood what a hard decision it was to sell our parent’s farm. They were extremely professional, caring and made a difficult situation manageable. We would highly recommend this team of professionals.

I grew up in a Realtor/Auctioneer's home, and know the importance of the skill and integrity of that occupation. When it was time to sell my parents' land, we knew we needed the expertise of an auctioneer, and the expertise of someone who knows farm land. We found that in Victor Edelman and Brian Landis. I have never seen a business team who better complements one another than these two. Victor has years of experience in auctions and property sales, and Brian has years of experience with land values and appraisals. Melissa and Hope round out the marketing and clerical side of the business.We were very happy with the way this team handled the entire process of our land sale, from the first consultation to the signing of contracts. And I can't say enough about their integrity. Many thanks for a job well done!
Ralph & Grace Van Sickle Trust
TRACT 1 (82 acres): average stand of native grasses; open; one pond; perimeter fence in average condition;
TRACT 2 (328 acres): average stand of native grasses; mostly open with a couple of wooded draws; two ponds; perimeter fence in fair to average condition; Soil Class 3e, 4e, 6e & 5w; part was farmed years ago and then reseeded to grass, the old tilled land is mostly in the south half; there is a communication tower near the northeast corner.
I met with Victor and Brian back in December and was impressed with their qualifications. I could see that they had a clear plan for marketing my property and the expertise to get our property maximum exposure to the market of potential buyers. About 75 days later, our property sold through auction with standing room only, so their marketing plan worked well. All of the Swift-N-Sure Auctions & Real Estate personnel did a great job. I would certainly recommend them to anyone interested in selling their land at auction.
