Troy Hansen started Hansen Real Estate Services in 2009. Since that time in just five short years he has grown the company into a major force within real estate circles in Central Iowa and beyond. Troy brings a well-rounded perspective to various facets that his company provides which include real estate development, brokerage and property management. Having grown up in construction and real estate he appreciates all of the moving parts and inter-related disciplines that it takes for a project to be successful.
Troy’s path to commercial real estate includes a lineage, which has helped him develop his skills and experience. Troy’s grandfather was a bricklayer and meticulously set bricks one by one, working with his hands everyday. Troy appreciates the craftsmanship and pride that his grandfather modeled for him as an impressionable young man. Troy’s father Craig founded The Hansen Company, a commercial general contractor, in which Craig has grown to one of the largest contractors in the Greater Des Moines area. Troy worked within the construction company for many years before making the determination that all of this collective background and experience would be of great benefit to his pursuits in development, brokerage and property management.
Hansen Real Estate is currently involved in a number of projects including the $49 million dollar City Square project in the Historic East Village. This ambitious project includes the redevelopment of an entire city block consisting of a new 137-room Staybridge Suites extended stay hotel, a 124-unit apartment project along with a 310-stall structured parking facility. Hansen Real Estate also recently delivered The Ballyard Lofts project near Principal Park, which transformed a 105 year old warehouse into 44 market rate apartments.
Through these endeavors and others he has honed his skills for a wide variety of projects including new construction, adaptive re-use, commercial, mixed-use, multi-family and hospitality. Today Hansen Real Estate includes six active commercial real estate agents along with five others who actively work on accounting, maintenance and management. Troy considers Hansen Real Estate to be a tight knit boutique firm that focuses on close client relationships with those that share similar passions and interests in real estate.
Troy is eager and poised to grow Hansen Real Estate by providing development, brokerage and property management services that add value for his clients. In the process of doing that he hopes to make the community a better place through thoughtful and forward-thinking development.
