Hegg, REALTORS is the oldest real estate company in the state of South Dakota. It continues to be the premier residential real estate firm in Sioux Falls area selling more real estate than any firm in the state.
Ode Hegg founded Hegg, REALTORS in 1945 as a brokerage specializing in farmland sales throughout eastern South Dakota and residential real estate in the Sioux Falls area. In the 1960s, Ode’s son Peter joined the firm and added development to the company’s list of services. In 1970, Bill Hegg, Ode’s nephew, joined the firm and became a partner in 1975.
In the 1980s, Hegg Realtors consisted of several divisions including residential real estate, farmland, commercial properties and property management. Bill and Peter remained partners in the company. In the late 1980s, Hegg, REALTORS decided to split and form a second entity called Hegg Companies. Peter served as the owner and managing partner of Hegg Companies which handled commercial development and property management. Bill Hegg continued to lead Hegg, REALTORS® , focusing on the residential real estate and farmland divisions.
In 2007, Peter sold his remaining interest of Hegg, REALTORS to Bill Hegg and Gregg Gohl. Under Bill and Gregg’s leadership, the company has grown to 170+ agents. Bill and Gregg continue to be co-owners/brokers and active in the firm today. Bill serves as Chief Executive Officer and Gregg as Chief Operating Officer.
