Company History

1 Stop Realty, Inc. was founded in the early 1970's by the late Warren E. Swenson as a full service real estate marketing firm in Kasson, Minnesota. Farm sales were expanded and farm property management added in 1979 when his son, Kirk Swenson joined the firm after a post college career in banking and finance.

True to Warren's original company mission, 1 Stop remains a full service company specializing in the management and sales of farmland throughout Minnesota, the Midwest, and across the country.

March of 2009 1 Stop had the opportunity to expand its reach and expertise to better serve its clients with the affiliation of Roger Heller and his group of professional farmland sales people. Roger and Kirk Swenson first connected through their mutual membership in the REALTORS® Land Institute of the National Association of REALTORS®-RLI is the land specialty affiliate of NAR.

The addition of Roger Heller and his group increases our land management and sales expertise with his 40 years of experience. It also adds to our team approach to marketing which will better serve all of our clients. Roger's history of a wide array of client representation compliments the expertise in 1031, auction, and private treaty sales we already have.

The proficient personnel working from the Kasson and Olivia, MN offices will permit 1 Stop to serve clients with their farmland needs through the entire region and beyond. Each individual brings unique skills; when combined creates a truly thorough and professional approach to serving the client.

The company has managed and sold farmland from Minnesota's Red River Valley in the northwest to the "Bluff Country" in the southeast to the dusty plains of Texas, with particular emphasis on farmland sales and management in Minnesota, Iowa, and the Dakotas. 1 Stop Realty specializes in land sales, 1031 tax deferred property exchanges, absentee land owner management, and land auctions.
