I am dedicated to YOU! Whether you are buying or selling a home my main priority is your satisfied with the process and the results. I pride myself in being a PEOPLE person.
I enjoy working with First Time HomeBuyers and am knowledgeable throughout the Des Moines Metro and surrounding area. Coldwell Banker gives me the tools such as a 22 Point Guarantee, Full time Concierge, Coldwell Banker OnLocation and much more!
I have lived in the Des Moines area for around 9 years. My husband and I reside in West Des Moines with our three children. We truly believe that raising our children in Iowa is the best thing for them. Two of our kids are currently attending school in the West Des Moines School District which we also think is great!
When I am not selling real estate or spending time with my family I enjoy volunteering my time with the Blank Park Zoo. 2014 marked my 5th year as a committee member for their annual fundraiser Zoobilation (formerly Uptown Hoedown). My family enjoys all aspects of the zoo from just visiting, summer camps, Eggstravaganza, etc. Therefore it really wasn't a hard decision to become involved with this great organization! I also dedicate time to helping with the Habitat for Humanity Build and Meals From the Heartland.
Beyond giving back to the community I also believe that it is equally important to give back to my profession. There are members and active members in real estate. I like to believe that I am an active member by attending local board functions/meetings as well as state. I am currently the Iowa CRS Chapter Treasurer and past Iowa YPN Chair & 2013 Region 5 CRS District Representative. I am also part of a newly formed Des Moines Area Association of Realtors Focus Group.
Testimonials for Erika Hansen
This was a first home purchase for both me and my fiancée. I can't imagine finding a better person than Erika to help us through the process. She answered all of our questions quickly and never made it seem like we had a dumb question. Even better, she usually anticipated questions and answered them before we even knew we had thwm. Erika is fantastic at keeping in touch with you and never makes you feel like a burden. She was extremely accommodating to our schedule, making herself available seven days a week at almost any time we needed. She even made a special trip to the house with a sold sign so we could take pictures because my fiancée was out of town when we closed. I would highly recommend Erika to anyone buying a home.
I highly recommend Erika without any reservations. She worked so hard to get us our house. In addition, Erika was very helpful in doing alot of backgroung information about the property we wanted to buy within a very short period of time.

Erika went way beyond our expectations. My wife and I thought we would simply see what homes were available. From her very first email, Erika was courteous and professional, a refreshing authenticity compared to other emails we received. Erika worked with us and our budget, helping us find a home that is perfect for us. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a home.
Erika has been great! She is very knowledgeable and responds quickly to emails / phone calls. She helped us find and close on a short sale. She stayed on top of all the paperwork and gave us frequent status updates. She made our first time buying a home a good experience and I highly recommend her if you are in the market to purchase a home.
Overall great experience! Erika is very professional and I felt had our best interest in mind at all times. She was very informative and made the process much easier on us as first time home buyers. She was very flexible, willing to meet with us in the evening as well as on weekends to better suit our schedules. Very prompt in returning emails/phone calls and answering all of our questions. Highly recommended!

Erika worked with us to purchase our first home, and I cannot say enough positive things about working with her. She was always available to respond to emails, answer questions, and arrange viewings - exceptional responsiveness. She is organized, knowledgable, and goes above and beyond at every opportunity. At one point I had difficulty finding some information for my homeowners insurance, and when I voiced my frustration to Erika, she stepped in and called my insurance agent, dealing with them directly so I didn't have to worry about it. I was very impressed!
I would highly recommend Erika to anyone looking to buy a house, but especially to a first time buyer. She took her time to make sure we understood and were comfortable with the buying process at every step. She sent us helpful reminders throughout the closing process and even after we had completed the purchase of the house. Erika worked to make the entire home-buying process go smoothly for us, anticipating needs and issues before they could arise. We were so happy to have had the opportunity to work with Erika, and we love our new home.
