About Us

Hagen Realty Group

Founded in 1991 as a full service real estate and equipment auction firm, we have seen and experienced many changes in the Real Estate and Auction Profession. Technology has changed the way we live our daily lives. The buyer of today uses the internet to research everything, especially a real estate purchase in detail before they talk with anyone. Buyers now have website services at their fingertips that provide information such as tax value, resent sales history, neighborhood and city data and even a perceived value of a property.

Hagen Realty Group is a firm that understands the seller’s need in this ever changing, technology-oriented world.  A recent survey shows that 83% of buyers want “Photos” of your property at their fingertips, 79% of buyers want “Detailed Property Information” before they step on your property and 43% of buyers want to see a “Video Tour” of your property before they make contact with any agent. Wow, how times have changed! 

This information tells us buyers want 24/7 access to information, not spending hours, days and sometimes weeks trying to get information concerning your property.  Also according to the same survey, 47% of buyers come from the internet and only 9% of buyers come from signs. Technology has changed how we bank, pay our bills, buy items and has changed the old real estate model of putting up a sign and waiting for the buyer to call. Today’s buyer uses technology to buy real estate and your property has to be on the web on numerous sites and have detailed information at the fingertips of the buyers when they want it.  

Hagen Realty Group is not your traditional real estate or auction firm. We are marketers of real estate using the most up-to-date technology to promote your property. We utilize multiple advertising components such as Email Broadcast, Social Media including Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram as well as multiple real estate listing websites to market your property and insure it receives the most exposure possible. 

Our Website offers buyers access to Photos, Sample Contracts, Property Videos, Property Disclosures, a Detailed Property Information Package and all the details upfront, insuring that the buyer has all of the necessary information to determine their level of interest in your property and understands the terms of the sale.

You can have the best marketing in the world however if a seller’s expectations of value is unrealistic for the property, the property will not sale.

In our 24 years of experience we have dealt with client concerns as to the perceived negative perception of having a real estate auction. Hagen Realty Group team members are upfront letting individuals know that real estate auctions are not for individuals who have the mind set:

  • I do not have to sale
  • I do not care about market value, I want my price
  • I know my price is not based on value, I’m basing it on enough money to …………
  • I have this invested in my property and I am not going to sell it for a penny less
  • I have an old appraisal, I know its worth more than that now

Clients who have had great success selling real estate with Hagen Realty Group at auction have the following mind set:

  • I need the money for ………
  • I want top dollar for my real estate and believe Hagen Realty Group’s detailed marketing and competitive bidding format will achieve top dollar
  • My goals, needs and/or wants have changed.  I am ready to sale and move on with my life
  • I do not like having people viewing my house/property for months
  • I like knowing the day my property will sell
  • I know by dictating the terms of the sale, buyers who bid are serious buyers with cash in hand and can close.  I control setting the terms of the sale such as increased down payment, selling the property “as is”, closing in less than 45 days, and not selling subject to someone obtaining financing.  It may limit the buyer pool, but it weeds out the “lookers”  

The auction method of selling real estate does not work for sellers with unrealistic expectation of value for their property. That’s why Hagen Realty Group team members sit down with clients and discuss market value for your property upfront. We believe that every property can be sold by our superior marketing and online auction method for market value; however we do acknowledge not every seller has realistic pricing expectations for their property. We also acknowledge that not every buyer can buy at auction. Buyers with low credit scores, no money for down payments, and individuals who want concessions for everything from painting, new this and that, and sellers paying all or part of the closing or loan costs are not good buyers at auction.

When it comes to pricing your property Hagen Realty Group is considerably different than the competition.  We are not your traditional real estate auction firm. We do not charge upfront marketing fees, no sale fees or do “Absolute Auctions” on real estate. What sets us apart is our unique style of sitting down with our clients and assisting them with a pricing strategy for their property upfront. We provide a market activity summary of properties sold, which includes recent sales, description of sales and days on market in writing.  After review of the market summary and determining the needs of the client. We will provide you a Projected Price range of the sale of your property in less than 90 days.  By doing this, we eliminate over-priced properties that result in no sales for the Seller.  And buyers will know that our clients are realistic and motivated.  In today’s ever-changing world, well-informed clients with realistic expectations, make happy sellers. Simply, we agree upon a minimum reserve price for your property upfront, if you are not willing to sale your property for that price, we thank you for your time and let you pursue more traditional methods. If the price range is acceptable to you once that reserve price is bid your property sells to the highest bidder at the conclusion of the online auction event. In the even the minimum reserve price for your property is not achieved, you do not have to sale the property, you owe us nothing.  It’s that Simple – NO RISK.

 Our History

Hagen Realty Group's history goes back to 1991, when founder Kim H. Hagen conducted his first auction.  That year, Kim formed Hagen Auction Co., Inc. and later affiliated with a national chain.  Throughout these years, he made a careful study of what techniques were most effective for various types of properties, and he developed a vision for an approach that employed a full range of marketing options, in order to best meet the needs of each client and property.  That led to the formation of Hagen Realty Group, which has quickly emerged as one of the leading asset disposition firms, using a powerful online auction format.

Hagen has auctioned tens of thousands of properties in twenty-seven (27) states and DC, with satisfied auction clients.  Check out our "Scope of Business" for a sample of our previous engagements.
