QuotesGraphic.pngJosh and Michelle were great to work with! We sold our home very quickly and got the price we wanted. We would highly recommend them! - Jonathan & Sarah Marchand, Pleasant Hill home sellers and buyers

QuotesGraphic.pngJosh and Michelle Thank you all so very much for making a dreaded job MUCH easier! - Amanda & Dan, Des Moines home sellers

QuotesGraphic.pngWOW. Be prepared to be completely blown away! My son and his fiancé worked with Michelle and Josh when they bought their house and I was so impressed that I asked them to help me last month when I was ready to purchase a home. Amazing. It was like ready, get set, go. Michelle found me a home within a week and then did an even more amazing/never heard of thing, pulled off a two week closing. Yes, you heard that right. She worked diligently with my lender to pull off a two week closing. It’s incredibly difficult to find dedication like this in today’s world. There is a reason why Michelle and Josh have all of these 5 star ratings. Well earned. Thanks you guys, I absolutely love my new home! - Terri Whelan

QuotesGraphic.pngThe Hanson Team has all of the best qualities you need in a Realtor team. They listen, communicate, are very proactive with organization and pay close attention to detail. Highly recommend for home buyers and home sellers in Central Iowa! - Amy Brady Smith

QuotesGraphic.pngAs a lender, I always appreciate how smoothly the transaction goes with the realtors. The Hanson Team does a fabulous job with their buyers and sellers to make sure everything that can be done is completed ahead of time. They work wonderfully at facilitating a smooth closing for their customers. It is always a pleasure to work with The Hanson Team! - Lori Slings

QuotesGraphic.pngI 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

QuotesGraphic.pngThis team is nothing short of amazing! Michelle worked around the clock to make sure that not only our home sold but that we were able to purchase the house we fell in love with. She went above and beyond what we ever imagined. Highly recommend working with any individual with this team!! - Alison Smith

QuotesGraphic.pngAre you considering selling your home or purchasing a home? If so, I highly recommend Michelle Hanson (515-229-2662) of The Hanson Team. She listed my home on a Tuesday, had a realtor walk thru and photos taken on Wednesday and had the listing/photos on the web that evening. The next day I had a full price offer. Michelle kept me informed every step of the way, answered any question I had and promptly returned any phone call/message. 5 Stars is not a high enough rating for Michelle. - Sylvia Stanton

QuotesGraphic.pngI wanted to thank you for all the time and expertise you provided in the purchase of my new home. My job transfer from Chicago to the Des Moines area had the potential to be a stressful situation and you made this transition go very smoothly. Your resources and knowledge in the real estate industry are unparalleled. Thanks again for everything! - Michael Weeks

QuotesGraphic.pngThe Hanson Team did an awesome job walking us through the steps that we were taking while selling our house. They had us positioned perfectly once we hit the market and with their phenomenal marketing our house sold in hours of going to market. Thank you and I would 100% recommend them!!! - Jacki Carlson

QuotesGraphic.pngMichelle is 5 stars all the way! She was so amazing during our house hunting and buying process. She found us exactly what we wanted and explained every step of the process. She took time out of her weekends and evenings to show us different properties and even kept an eye on our baby so we could look around. We will definitely be calling her when we are ready to make our next move! Thank you Michelle!! - The Larkins Family

QuotesGraphic.pngThere is a reason Michelle won Rookie of The Year last year with Remax. Let me also note that our house was sold above asking price. Within 48 hours of being on the market.

She was patient about offers and generous in giving detailed feedback and notes in reading through buyer feedback, contracts, setting up pre-inspection, calling contractors for repairs, pointing me in a good direction with lenders, helping set realistic expectations throughout the selling process and guided me through every step of the way. She is highly attentive to detail and even showed up the day of photos to help do whatever was needed to get house on market asap (that was even ready to help clean, if needed). Was involved every step of the way.

Bottom line – Michelle is kind, knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time. I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell in this stressful market. - Kim Howell

QuotesGraphic.pngMichelle 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! - Harold Ginther

QuotesGraphic.pngThe Hanson Team provided beyond exceptional service. Their expertise in every area was extremely necessary as we were purchasing a home from out of state. We could not have found our home as quickly as we did without their dedication and hard work. They listened. They worked tirelessly. We cannot recommend them enough to anyone buying or selling a home. - Beth and Buck Webb
