About Us

Our Story

For over 50 years, Jack Nitz & Associates has been one of Eastern Nebraska’s leading full-service Auction and Real Estate Firms. JNA has long been recognized as a leader in the Auction and Real Estate industry because of their honesty, integrity and results. The firm is dedicated to bringing a broad exposure to the assets being sold for their clients. Jack Nitz & Associates is able to offer unmatched marketing programs and services for their clients because they have a team of experienced and eager real estate, auction, advertising and marketing professionals.

Through the years, the staff at Jack Nitz & Associates has been able to gain greater professional experience than most by taking advantage of opportunities to conduct auctions and sell real estate in a more expansive area than just eastern Nebraska. Their broad market area ranges from the eastern border of Iowa to the western border of Nebraska, from the Southern border of Kansas and Missouri and even reaching the Northern border of South Dakota and into North Dakota. They have even sold property as far away as Idaho! However, with Fremont being at the heart, their local market area includes Omaha, Lincoln, Columbus, Sioux City, Norfolk and all the communities in between.

Although Nitz’s roots are in the auction method of marketing, not all properties should be auctioned, which is why they also specialize in conventional real estate services. JNA has vast experience, efficient marketing programs and a proven track record selling residential homes, homes with acreage, lake homes, farms, ranches, agricultural land and commercial property via conventional sale. Our unique blend method of marketing allows the seller to decide which method of marketing will best achieve their personal objectives.

Jack Nitz & Associate’s also offers incomparable Appraisal Services for equipment, trucks, firearms and other personal property assets. Like JNA’s market area for Auctions and Real Estate, they offer Appraisal Services in multiple states with the heart being Fremont & surrounding areas. Many businesses, banks and insurance agencies use our appraisal services every couple years in order to keep their businesses updated.

Three Generations of Auction Expertise

Jack Nitz & Associates was founded in 1962 by Jack & Delores Nitz. Jack is recognized nationally as a leading auctioneer; he was inducted into the National Auctioneers Association Hall of Fame in 1997. To this day, Jack is an active contributor to JNA’s successful business practices; however, a second and third generation of Nitz’s has taken lead over the firm! Jack’s son, Jay, an associate since 1985, became President of the firm in 2008. Jay, like his father, is a leading national auctioneer and real estate professional. Jay is also a highly accredited appraiser; in 2012, he earned the prestigious Graduate Personal Property Appraiser (GPPA) designation. Additionally, Jay’s daughter, Courtney, an associate since 2007, earned the title of Vice President in 2014.

Courtney is a talented auctioneer and has proven it time and time again through her participation in multiple international, national and state level bid-calling competitions. Jack (1981), Jay (1988) and Courtney (2013) have all earned their Certified Auctioneers institute (CAI) designations from the National Auctioneers Association Educational Institute. CAI is the professional designation awarded to practicing auctioneers who meet the experiential, educational and ethical standards set by the NAA and its Education Institute. By choosing to sell your assets through JNA, you are choosing to work with qualified, passionate professionals who can sell your assets quickly, hassle free and at market value.
