Celebrating forty years of helping clients find homes
John W. Hansen and Associates Real Estate is celebrating 40 years of successfully serving clients. They are an integral part of the real estate community in Northern Utah, helping clients of all kinds, from families and individuals looking for a place to call home to large corporations providing foundational public services.
This prominent brokerage has grown from one man into a tight-knit team of well-trained, experienced professionals. When John W. Hansen got started in real estate, he worked alone. He gradually added agents and staff as the business expanded. Many of his team members have worked with him for over 25 years.
John is very grateful for his team. “The foundation of this brokerage is the integrity and professionalism of the agents and staff I work with. We’ve worked closely for a long time, and we work very well together. This increases our productivity as a company.”
Before working in real estate, John taught seminary for eight years for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He said that the key lesson he took from his time teaching was “to treat others as you would like to be treated.” His underlying love of serving people created a solid foundation for his business, and people naturally wanted to work with him.
During his long and distinguished time in real estate, John has been highly awarded by the Northern Wasatch Association of Realtors.
The John W. Hansen brokerage has handled over 20,000 transactions over the years. Looking back, there were many particular projects that stood out to John. He sold 10,000 acres to the State of Utah, in the Middle Fork area of Ogden Valley, and sold the Wolf Creek Resort. More recently, he handled the sale of 60 acres of property where the new IHC hospital is now located. He has handled the development of several major office complexes in Weber and Davis counties.
John proudly represented America First Credit Union as their broker. “They trusted me to acquire their sites for 25 years. It’s truly been an honor to work with so many wonderful local businesses.”
Even though John has turned the day-to-day running of his company over to his son Marc, he still works every day. “I have no plans to retire,” he says. “I’ve never turned down a listing of any size.”
John continues to use his work ethic, love of service, and experience to be the driving force behind this dynamic real estate team. “I’m very grateful for the work I’ve been able to do. My business can’t grow alone. A real estate brokerage needs financial institutions, title companies, engineers, architects, contractors, and many others in order to function. It takes a whole community to create a successful business, and we are so grateful to all those who have supported us during the last 40 years.”
