Both Kim and I were very pleased with your service. You were recommended to us by our son - who met you through your daughters both playing soccer together. When you spoke to him about what you did for your career - he felt you would be a good fit for us trying to sell Kim's family farm.

You were very patient with Kim - it was hard for him to sell the property and you respected that. Obviously you did a great job with the listing on your website, since that is where the buyer came from!! We were amazed and astounded at how quickly it sold. I know they don't always work out that way, but this was just perfect for our situation. AND FULL PRICE!!

We have told many people about our experience and how pleasant it was to work with you. You come with our highest recommendations.
We wish you and your company the best in years to come and again are very grateful for all you did for us.

~Jo & Kim Beil

PS - We love the framed plat of the old town on the farm that you gave Kim. It was a very thoughtful and meaningful gift.

My family has known Justin Hertzel since his high school days. In our minds, he has established himself as a person of high integrity, with strong family values, and with the motivation to get jobs done. So, when we started looking for Sandhills ranch property, Justin was the person we wanted on “our side,” representing us in the transaction and helping us evaluate various properties for possible purchase, revealing the pros and cons of each.

In retrospect, we got the process of finding the property and enacting the purchase done quite quickly, a reflection on both circumstances and availabilities and, particularly, Justin’s attention and service to our needs. Justin was right “by our side” as we waded through all the information gathering, the offer, and finally the closing. Yes, we celebrated with Justin when the deal was done!

The best way to complete my testimony is to answer the obvious question: Would I engage Justin Hertzel’s services again to be my representative in another real estate transaction? My answer, in less than a heartbeat, is a resounding “YES.”

Justin, I thought you were great and would definitely refer you to friends or family. Your knowledge of the area, the recreational opportunities in Nebraska and near the property was very valuable. Thanks again for your help in acquiring my new ranch!

Best, Marvin

Jon and I would like to thank Justin Hertzel for his efficient and capable assistance in two recent property transactions. We started by searching online for properties in the Lincoln, NE area for our niece who was hoping to relocated here. We found some interesting listings and contacted Hayden Outdoors for more information. We were referred to Justin who contacted us the same day. To make a long story short, Justin helped us sell a small acreage we bought twenty years ago which enabled us to purchase a retirement property with a house and detached shop that we are very excited about. We love living in the country, and Justin has made our dream come true. To make the story end even better, Justin sold the adjoining farm property to our niece who will be moving here in the next few years. Not only do we have a comfortable, quiet new home in the country, but we will have family living next door to us! Justin was patient with our many questions, never pressured us, and never seemed in a hurry when showing us available properties. He is personable, knowledgeable, and a true professional. Thank you, Justin!!
~LeAnn and Jon Merth

Justin was very thorough and knowledgeable on the process and how we needed to go about completing it. He didn't constantly rush or hound us on trying to make a decision, and I would recommend him. Justin was very professional, and courteous of our time and wishes to view the property, and made sure our questions were answered very timely. He took the time to make sure that we understood the agreements and what all was contained within them, I think that's a big move on his part to make sure we were happy with how it was going to play out.

- Thorough and Knowledgeable - 03/21/18

I am thoroughly impressed with the service Justin has delivered. If you are in the market for a piece of heaven, Justin will find it. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and sent me a few properties to check out. When we identified a property that looked from an aerial, Justin invited and encouraged my entire family to come out. This was truly a guy that cared and requested that my family come out as well. Justin will take the time and you will not feel rushed to check our everything you wanted to see on the property. Justin handled the transaction with class. Nothing was ever pushed or neglected. We had to make some changes and Justin took care of it. Even after the sale Justin came back to check in to see how things were going. Justin Hertzel is the guy I would recommend to anyone looking for a life changing move! Marty Veverka

We met Justin while we were looking at another property. We were impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He thought ahead to ward off potential problems and always returned our calls right away to get the answers we needed. We would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

- Knowledge and Professionalism - 12/26/18

Justin Hertzel just helped me complete a sale and purchase of two properties in Nebraska. His knowledge of real estate values in different areas of the State combined with access to strong marketing support make him a real asset to anyone who needs help finding and selling property. He was responsive and reliable, both great assets in his business. Any future property transactions that I have in the Great State of Nebraska will have Justin’s name on the contract.

“I enjoyed working with Justin. He kept me informed at each step of the process and is a total professional” – James Stubbendieck, Platte River Waterfowl

I had seen Hayden Outdoors signs in the area. When I went to the website and could see all the states Hayden Outdoors covered and the clients they were reaching out too. We felt [Justin] was someone who could help us find a buyer for our property. [He was] very professional and honest with all of the inquiries we had. This was helpful in keeping us on the right path to a sale. [Justin] helped us establish a marketable value for our property. When interested buyers were asking if we would sell the North side separate from the South side, [Justin] suggested we split the initial tract in to two tracts to help attract more buyers and selling of the property. After our initial meeting, [Justin] understood what type of buyer we were trying to find and helped us to accomplish that.

Justin and Hayden Outdoors are an outstanding combination if you are considering selling any real estate. Very pleased with the help selling my river property. Thank you Justin!

- Vayden Anderson - 08/03/21

Justin was professional and made the buying experience easy. He had all the people to make the closing of the property quick and efficient.

I recently bought an acreage in SE Nebraska with Justin Hertzel. Justin was nothing short of fantastic! I had been looking at properties for several years when I contacted Justin. To say he "knows the market" would be an understatement. Justin found the property I purchased and made the transaction as seamless and easy as possible. He was very professional and I always felt like he gave me prudent advice. I would definitely use Justin again if I were to buy or sell property in Nebraska.

Justin’s, knowledge and experience helped us in understanding the market. He listened to our input and worked to meet our expectations. His quick response to questions from potential buyers was invaluable.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Justin Hertzel of Hayden Outdoors. Justin worked through a variety of challenging and completely unorthodox circumstances to deliver the sale. His appreciation of the land translated into a palpable excitement that prospective buyers obviously sensed.

Justin's professionalism extended throughout every stage of the process and even beyond the closing, which was also made with a clean and simple process. I whole heartedly recommend Justin Hertzel with Hayden Outdoors to facilitate the sale of your property.
