Generational Planning

Plan for future generations

Let us help you navigate the complex process, which can include general communication, legal, and economic decisions.

Our passion for generational planning derives from our rich history and the invaluable insights that we have developed over multiple generations. Transferring your farmland or ranch to the next generation can be challenging. We are here to help our clients navigate the complex process, which can include communication, legal and economic decisions.

Timely generational planning is crucial for both the benefactors and those inheriting the land in the future. When the time arrives, estate transitions can be emotional and sometimes come with unexpected obstacles if not properly planned. In addition, proper estate planning can help reduce and avoid unnecessary taxes. Ideally, estate planning is revisited and adjusted yearly to identify changes in tax and other legal requirements. 

Hageman Realty’s expert management services give you the edge to ensure you are prepared for what the future holds. Our well-qualified team throughout Indiana, Illinois, Texas, and Wisconsin works closely with other professionals to ensure a simple, seamless, and successful transaction.

We value our relationships

"We were very pleased with our experiences in working with the Hageman Realty Team in the efforts to sell our Wolcott farm in 2018. The Hageman Team worked smoothly together with several potential local buyers and achieved a final result above the initial asking price. It was a wonderful joint effort between us (living in Florida) and their team based in Remington, Indiana."

"As a Realtor myself, I appreciated the professionalism, communication, and attention to detail that Hinnerk and his team showed in working with my family to sell our 440 acre farm. They made what could have been complicated, a seamless and smooth transaction. I would highly recommend him and Hageman Realty."

"My experience with Hageman Realty goes back many, many years: to 1983 to be exact. Since that time, we have experienced together the many ups and downs in the ag market. Looking back gives me courage as we look ahead, working together to navigate this ever-changing landscape. With the Hageman Realty firm the next generation is in charge, as is the case in our farming operation. Sara, as her father did, brings the knowledge and compassion that I appreciate when striving to satisfy all involved with the management issues of farmland ownership."

"Service and integrity describe Hageman Realty. We built high levels of trust early in our relationship and they helped us locate property for our Midwest expansion."

"As a inexperienced land buyer Sara’s experience was very helpful in helping me find the type of property that best suited my needs. Sara also did a great job helping me negotiate a deal that worked well with my budget and did a lot of extra legwork that saved me valuable time. In the future no matter if I am buying or selling Sara will be my first call. Thanks for your timely and professional touch."

“When the decision was made to sell our family farm, we knew Hageman Realty was the company we would trust with such an important task. We met with the Hageman team to discuss the process and the options available to us. From the very beginning, their many years of experience and knowledge of the industry were evident. From listing to closing, they proactively took the time to ensure our family was kept updated on any developments throughout and was always available to answer questions we had. What could have been a confusing and frustrating process for our family, became a pleasurable one due to the professionalism and compassion of the team at Hageman Realty.”
