The Hanson Team RE/MAX Concepts Testimonials

Michelle was extraordinarily helpful in helping my fiance and I buy our first home.

We are more than pleased with the hard work she put in for us. She was referred to us by a friend and we will be referring her to our friends in the future.


From the start, Michelle has been everything I was hoping for in an agent.

We felt completely at ease with the manner in which she handled our sale. These days, people are quick to promise you the world to get your business, and then impossible to find when you need something. Any question we had, that was texted, was responded to in less than 5 minutes. We decided to retire early, jump in our RV and ride off into the sunset. After finishing up everything else, the last thing on the list was to sell the house. We were assured by both Michelle and Josh that they would hit the ground running, so we could head out. The marketing was outstanding and the house was shown the next day several times, and again the following day. They knew the market and who was looking for our style of home, which led to the house being sold in less than 48 hours. Folks, this is the team you need for all your real estate needs. Honest, hardworking, and very, very personable agents. By far your best choice in the Des Moines area.


The Hanson Team, Michelle and Josh Hanson, recently represented us during the sale of our home.

They were very knowledgeable, professional and made the process so easy for us! Highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!

Michelle recently handled the sale of my acreage.

From start to finish, she handled every detail with total engagement, care, and professional expertise. She suggested a selling price but wanted to make sure I was comfortable with listing the property at that price. Michelle is a good negotiator, has great follow-up and has a get-it-done attitude. She did a great job start to finish. Excellent communication skills. She kept me in the loop, answered my many questions. I will use her again when I'm ready to relocate. Knowing she was handling all the details, reduced my stress.

We used Michelle Hanson for both the selling our home of 17 years and the purchasing of a different home in Altoona in the Fall 2017.

We initially chose Michelle because she was a family friend; however, it was apparent after our first “official” meeting that it was divine intervention and Michelle was meant to be our realtor. After our first meeting, it took us approximately eight months to get our home ready for sale. During that time, we had numerous setbacks and Michelle encouraged us through periodic texts, calls and visits. She didn’t push or abandon us; rather, she reached out to her contacts when needed for assistance and consultation. Ultimately, we sold our home in 48 hours and we were able to get more than we expected for the purchase price. On the purchase side, we were looking for a needle in a haystack or a “nugget” as she liked to call it. Michelle took us through at least 20 homes in the SEP school district. We had one offer declined and also had to back out of a different purchase because of issues on the seller side. Michelle handled both stressful situations with class and professionalism. We ended up finding a home that fit our family’s needs and Michelle closed the deal. If you are looking for a kind, caring, honest, hardworking, intelligent, straightforward realtor that works very hard and always has your best interest in mind, choose Michelle Hanson. We chose Michelle and couldn’t be happier with our decision. We will continue to refer Michelle to all of our family and friends.

I work in the mortgage space, and therefore interact with many different real estate agents on various transactions.

I recently was introduced to Michelle and her team and worked together through a purchase for a mutual customer. I was extremely impressed at her dedication to the buyer client, and her willingness to work with me as a partner rather than just another 3rd party to get the transaction under way. Customer focus and great communication - you cannot go wrong.

David Baker

Michelle was such a joy to have as our agent in selling our home after living there for 33 years.

Michelle was there every step of the process,and it wasn’t easy to leave our home after such a long time. We never had to leave the house to take care of the selling business, which is huge for us. We will certainly recommend Michelle to everyone who is looking for a “good” realtor. Thank you so much for a pleasant experience!

Just purchased my second home from the Hanson team and I can't say enough good things about them!

They took time to listen to exactly what we were looking for in our new home and quickly provided us just that! Meanwhile, they helped us with the process of selling our current home quickly. The Hanson Team is the best around!

Michelle sold our house in one day!

I would recommend her to anyone selling a home. Very easy to work with.

I would recommend the Hanson Team all week and twice on Sunday!

They have extensive experience, give good and honest recommendations and then let you call the shots! In our case, Michelle got our house ready to sell within a week at the right price and we had an offer in 4 Days! The process of selling and moving your house is quite challenging both physically and mentally, but Michelle is with you every step of the way and does everything she can for her clients! They truly make you feel a part of the "Team!"
