Historic Nebraska Ranch Sells for $13 Million

Posted by Ashley on February 1, 2022

A highly reputable ranch recently sold in the Sandhills area in Nebraska for $13 million. The ranch featured 19,000 acres (17,000 deeded), seven lakes, trophy hunting opportunities and highway frontage.

The ranch was listed and sold by Richard Dawson and Donald Hlava of United Country | AgTeam Land Brokers in Lexington, Neb. The unique part of this historic sale is the strong relationship between the real estate agents and the sellers of the property. Donald is the son of the owners and Richard is a long-time friend.

“My long-term relationship with Fred (the seller) is what got me the listing,” said Richard. “He wanted to retire and always said I would be the one to sell his ranch. The best part is that his son, Donald, moved back to the area a little over a year ago. I helped Donald get his real estate license and now he works for our firm as an agent. So, we split the deal.”

The power of United Country’s top-ranking websites is what found the buyer, who is a local investor. They closed the deal in December 2021. Now, Dawson said they are focused on their next big sale, a $6 million ranch set to close in the spring.

“The demand for Sandhill ranches is extremely high,” he said. “It’s all about the water in this area. Invest in water, invest in Nebraska. That’s our motto.”
