Hack's started more than 50 years ago when Henry and Nancy Hachmeister conducted their first aucton for the First Congregational Church of Pecatonica in the June of 1961. Henry, known to most as "Hack", always had an interest in auctions. When the church needed someone to volunteer and sell a willed estate for the church, Henry readily accepted the job. Since that fateful day, Hack's has evolved into the premier auction company in northern Illinois. With more than 50 years of experience, Greg and Swan Hachmeister, Henry and Nancy's sons, are leading Hack's Auction into the future. Greg is a licensed auctioneer and real estate agent. Swan is a licensed auctioneer and real estate broker.With the assistance of sister Jody handling the advertising, Hack's Auction and Realty is truely a family operation.
Hack's now has three full-time licensed auctioneers, several other licensed real estate agents and a skilled staff of reliable employees that allow us to provide the quality service the public has come to expect from us.
Our continuing mission is to provide professional quality auction, real estate and appraisal services to our customers and clients.
