The husband and wife team of Josh and Michelle with The Hanson Team RE/MAX Concepts have built a business that continues to grow and evolve as they aim to be the best Realtors they can be in the Des Moines area. “Our desire is to build the most trusted and referrable real estate organization in the Des Moines area. To do that, we strive daily to ensure that we are strategic, creative, passionate and committed to our clients and our community. We love working for our clients and providing them with a service that will impact every facet of their lives.” - Michelle Hanson We strive daily to be great. Just ask our children. They will likely hear these three words on their way out the door each morning “Be great today!” So our story begins...
It all started with a mix-tape. I remember the day very well in 1999. I was in my office trying to work when my office door opened and in an instant my life would be forever changed. I turned to look over my shoulder to see Michelle for the very first time. It was literally love at first sight. I remember thinking to myself in that moment that I was going to marry this girl. I had no idea how I was going to get it done, but it was already burned on my heart. We became terrific friends and spent hours together driving around listening to music. I finally decided to make my bold move with a mix-tape of course. If I remember correctly, you would have found some N’SYNC, Boys to Men, Garth Brooks, James Taylor and others on the tape. I know what you are thinking, but it worked. Now we pay “We are Family” on repeat, well “Alexa” does! “Tray tables in the upright and locked position.” Since the mix-tape was so successful, I decided to take our relationship to the next level. Once again, I had a great idea. I planned a trip and decided to propose to Michelle. I made the decision to propose to her on the plane over the intercom while in flight (before security was tightened up with today’s regulations). My only setback here was the flight attendants conveniently forgot the conversation; so I took it upon myself and as we started our descent I went to the front of the plane, walked up, and grabbed the intercom microphone to read aloud the poem I had written for Michelle. I walked back down the aisle, got on one knee and leaned over the woman who was sitting on the aisle to ask Michelle to marry me. We continue living life in a fun and creative way... nearly always opting for the least traveled route!
Who We Are. We are Realtors and treat this business as a lifestyle and a family-run business. We are constantly challenging and leveraging each others gifts to better our business, and in return the service we provide. We have run the gamut of business opportunities in real estate from Business Owner, Landlord, Educational Instructor to Real Estate Agent to where we are today.
Lastly, our most important job we will ever have is to raise our children. In doing that, we are very active in our church, their schools and in our community... thanking others along that way for being a part of their “village.” As you know, it takes a village to raise a child. We Will Always Aim… To operate with the Law of Abundance in that there is enough business to go around and be gracious. To redefine the limits of going beyond in terms of great service and expertise for both our clients and our colleagues. But don’t take our word for it. We invite you to check out what others say about us with nearly 100 testimonials online!
Be Great Today! Thank you.
