Commercial & Industrial Real Estate
Founded in the 1950s, Heggeman Realty Company grew quickly into one of Mobile’s leading real estate companies under the leadership of B.J. “Buz” Heggeman, Jr. After moving from St. Louis to Mobile to attend Spring Hill College, Heggeman remained in the Port City, and through his hard work, Heggeman Realty has been recognized locally, regionally and nationally for its impact and innovation in industrial and commercial development.
From the beginning, Buz established the ethics and values learned from his parents and the Jesuits at Spring Hill as a cornerstone of his company. Even after his death in 1997, those remain intact today.
His son, B.J. “Bernie” Heggeman, III, continued the legacy that his father began when he joined the company in 1980 after graduating from Auburn University with a business degree. Bernie was active in multiple professional organizations, including memberships in the Mobile Association of Realtors, the Mobile Commercial Real Estate Exchange and the Society of Industrial Realtors (SIOR), for which he was also a Past Regional Chapter President. He also gave back to the local community by serving on the Board of Directors for Wells Fargo Bank, the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, the Business School Advisory Board at Spring Hill College and the Providence Hospital Foundation.
Mitchum Jackson began working under Bernie’s leadership in 2003 and continues to embrace Heggeman Realty’s reputation of professional integrity and community service.
