Our History Serving You

The Loranda Group, Inc. was founded in December 1994 to assist farm land owners and investors with their agricultural real estate needs. We sold our first farms in Indiana and Illinois in 1995 and expanded into Missouri in 1997.

In 2000, The Loranda Group extended our reach into Iowa and surpassed $50 million in sales that same year. Continuing to grow, Loranda exceeded $100 million in sales in 2005 and opened an office in Lafayette, Indiana, the following year. In 2009, we surpassed $150 million in sales and moved our corporate headquarters to Bloomington, Illinois.

Since 2010, Loranda has opened an office in Channahon, IL to serve its clients in northern Illinois and worked on a variety of projects across the Midwest. It has also been at the forefront of integrating social media and the Internet into one of the most comprehensive marketing program in the industry.

The Loranda Group has won the "Auction of the Year" and "Corporate Advertising" awards, both from the National Auctioneers Association.
