In his free time, Eric enjoys staying active. He loves playing golf and tennis and going to the gym. He also enjoys relaxing at the beach.
Eric Hansen is on the tee box, standing over his ball. He goes through a mental checklist in his head, and you can see the competitive spirit in his eyes as he prepares to hit his shot. Or you might witness that same glint in his eye when he’s on the tennis court, running down his opponent’s lob and countering with a topspin forehand of his own. Those who know him best will tell you he gets that same look in his eye when working with his clients.
You see, throughout his life, Eric Hansen has always loved professional sports because he has a great admiration for those who are the best at what they do. And although he may not be a professional athlete himself, Eric is known for devoting his “personal best” to everything he does.
The Origins of Success
Eric’s first taste of competition came on his high school soccer team. He still recalls his coach stressing the importance of being prepared and dedicating 100 percent effort to any endeavour. For Eric, those lessons weren’t confined to the boundary of the soccer pitch – they extended to every aspect of his life. While growing up in Florida, his mother was a highly successful real estate professional known for providing intensely personalized service to her clients. Although Eric earned his bachelor’s degree from Florida State, he considers the education he received from his mother’s example an even more powerful lesson on doing business the right way.
“My mom was extremely well respected and reinforced the importance of giving your all to everything you do,” Eric says. “Her passion showed in her work, and that’s why I strive to give my personal best every single day.”
“When I truly believe in what I’m doing, I give 110 percent effort. That’s why real estate is so motivating to me. There’s nothing more rewarding than helping people with one of life’s largest investments.”
