J.P. Weigand & Sons is ranked 20th among auction companies in a recent edition of The Land Report, a magazine based in Plano, Texas, that covers real estate, especially rural tracts, including agriculture, vacation and resort properties.
The ranking was published in the magazine’s summer edition in an article titled, “America’s Top 30 Auction Houses.”
Based on the total value of sales, Weigand was listed as having $14.3 million in land auction sales.
The magazine noted that rising prices for farmland led to more agriculture-based auction companies being ranked. It said this was Weigand’s first time on the list.
The No. 1 ranking went to Farmers National Company, which is based in Omaha, Neb., and had a reported $450 million in land auction sales.
Weigand’s auction group includes Terry Rupp, John Rupp, Mike King, Paul Nisly, Rick Hopper and Ken Patterson, according to a news release from Weigand.
