Renae Hansen, a native Michigander, moved to northern Michigan after several years in Denver, CO. Her dabbling in real estate ventures captured her full attention and she immersed herself in all aspects of the business, becoming an agent and then an associate broker in 2010. Having moved around the country and going through the home buying process several times she was committed to helping others navigate the process pleasantly and successfully. A graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in animal science, she continues that interest by volunteering at local animal shelters and organizations. She also volunteers for many other organizations which helps to keep her abreast of the growth and benefits of the greater Grand Traverse Community. She lives in Traverse City with her husband Gordie and family dog Clover.
