Jim Stock grew up southwest of Humphrey, NE, and now lives in the Columbus, NE, area. He and his wife Shayla have two daughters.

Selling farmland real estate is a natural fit for Jim and John Stock, who grew up in and around the auction business and farming.  In 2004 they combined their experience and expertise into a partnership, becoming “Your Farm & Ranch Specialists.” As farmers themselves, they understand the market and work collaboratively with you to make the selling or buying process simple. After teaming up, they discovered their different talents complement each other perfectly.

For years, Jim and John have helped hundreds of families, heirs, and trustees sell farms across Nebraska. They are consistently the top multi-million dollar producers for BigIron Realty.

Testimonials from people just like you

The selling process was a HUGE success!! From the first minute that I spoke with John, I felt that I was heard, respected, and valued. I know that my choice of BigIron Realty and John was the perfect choice for my family. This was such a new experience for me and my family. John earned my trust and never lost that trust. I am happy that this is over, but sad to say goodbye.

I was shocked by your marketing efforts. If I had known about this extensive marketing, it would have made my brokerage decision even easier. John…. Please continue to be so available to your clients, you never steered me wrong or made unfounded promises to me.

I love just being given the professional opinion I need without being pushed into a decision. I always felt it was up to us, given the facts we had in front of us to decide when the time was right.

Janet Pfeifer, Madison, NE


I appreciated being kept up to date with the process. I also appreciated your professionalism, seasoned with good humor.

Cheryl Moore-Gough, Bozeman, MT


We chose BigIron because of the advertising and also using the online bidding. I think you can bid while you are doing chores or while on the tractor, or if you are out of state and you couldn’t make it back for the auction. They know all the locals that were interested in buying the land, but not only that they knew everybody out of state who were investors, and we didn’t know any of that on our own.

Donna Meister, Platte County, NE


Jim and John were so understanding and caring, they didn’t care about just selling the land and making money. They truly cared about our situation we were going through. They were right there every step of the way willing to help. We were very happy with the prices that were brought through the unreserved auction.

Brittney Bruha, Valley County, NE


From the very first day that I met them, and they came out and looked at the property, I felt that they were very honest and straightforward. It was a very good experience from my standpoint, I have nothing but praise for BigIron Realty.

Randy and Marcia Newsome, Seward County, NE


I was really pleased with the results, I had all kinds of offers, it was just easy. They’re upfront, straight with you, honest, and they have a good handle on what the market is… I would recommend BigIron Realty to anybody that has farm ground to sell.

Scott Walgren, Polk County, NE


I would like to thank BigIron Realty and Jim & John Stock for conducting our online auction.  From the first time you met with us to present your proposal all the way until after the sale your service, marketing knowledge and professionalism was second to none. You were in communication with us the entire process and kept us informed when any issues would pop up. Marketing! WOW!  Everywhere I went I either saw something on our sale or heard about it on the radio. One of the buyers was from over 4 hours away.  I would highly recommend Jim & John Stock from BigIron Realty to anyone who is in need of top-notch real estate service.

Brad Moncrief, Hastings, NE


I hired BigIron Realty to sell my land on their unreserved auction platform. It went great! I had dozens of bidders from multiple states. I think it was much more successful than if I would have had a traditional land auction”.

My honest opinion is that there isn’t a better way to sell land. The exposure on BigIron.com is incredible. Also, the anonymity for bidders gives you absolute fair market value. Neighbors don’t have to worry about “bidding each other up” and causing tension.

Dustin Schaefer, Platte County, NE


Having our property sold in a little over a week of listing was way beyond our expectations.  The advertising was superior, having over 30 inquires attests to that!  We would highly recommend your company and Jim & John are great guys and good businessmen!
