Trudi Wansgard has been a realtor for John W. Hansen and Associates for 35 years and counting. “I’ve seen all the markets,’’ she said, ‘’but this market has been the most challenging.”

Trudi recently helped a couple baby boomers who lived in the same home for 30 years. For three years, they knew they wanted to move but were afraid to take the next step. “I always try to help through different scenarios.” Moving and buying or selling a home is a life-changing decision, and Trudi keeps her client’s best interests at heart every step of the way. Once this couple decided to move ahead, things did work out! “That is one of the most satisfying feelings… Trust is the biggest thing in this profession.” Having a realtor can really ease peoples’ anxiety and give them peace of mind through this life-altering journey.
Integrity and trust is at the heart of everything she does in her profession, even in what some people might consider the little things. “If I am working with friends or family, I’ve told them: if you want people to know you’re moving or selling your house, you need to be the one to tell them. They aren’t going to hear it from me.”
Trudi immigrated to the USA from Austria when she was young and ended up in Ogden with her family. She graduated from Ogden High, then became an office manager at Roy Realty. That is what got her interested in Real Estate. She loved the flexibility that came with being a realtor, especially while raising her three kids in Davis County. The people she works with have kept her working as a realtor. She loves her clients and goes above and beyond for those she works for. Trudi’s accomplishments include Member of the Year for the local and state Women’s Council of Realtors, Realtor of the Year, and President’s Award. Her designations include GRI and CRS.
John Hansen said, “It has been my honor to be Trudi’s broker and associate for over 35 years. She is truly an outstanding real estate professional who has always demonstrated honesty and integrity in her business. Her knowledge and innovative ideas have been an asset to our brokerage.”
