Stefanie Hanson partners with PLACE to enhance her real estate team’s culture and resources
“With PLACE, our agents will benefit from a white-glove support system that empowers them to focus on what truly matters: their clients, families, and communities.”
KALISPELL, Mont., June 2023 — PLACE, the industry’s only all-in-one business services and technology platform for top teams at any brokerage, announced today that Stefanie Hanson and Beckman’s Real Estate Team are now powered by PLACE. PLACE improves profitability and production to make running a real estate business easier.
Stefanie Hanson is the owner and operator of Beckman’s Real Estate Team, serving communities in Flathead County, including, but not limited to, Kalispell, Whitefish, Bigfork, Columbia Falls, Lakeside, Somers, and the surrounding Glacier National Park area. Since 2016, Beckman’s Real Estate Team has helped 600+ families buy and sell real estate, and in 2022, the team closed $55+ million in sales volume through 93 transactions.
Hanson was a dental hygienist before joining her mother to run the family business, Beckman’s Fine Furnishings, a high-end furniture store that also provided exceptional home staging services for local real estate agents and their customers. “After a couple of years, I started thinking, ‘What if we just offered the whole package to people by listing and staging their homes to sell?’ The idea of offering that complete service to our clients is what led me to earn my real estate license.”
Her real estate business soared as she embraced digital marketing to showcase her eye-catching staging and attract leads. When her mother was ready to retire from running the furniture store in 2019, Hanson was faced with a difficult decision. With her real estate business flourishing, she chose to close Beckman’s Fine Furnishings and go all in on real estate, preserving her mother’s maiden name, Beckman, in her real estate business name.
“Working with sellers and buyers brings me immense joy; however, my true passion lies in supporting our agents, witnessing their growth, and celebrating their success,” expressed Hanson. “The sky’s the limit for our agents, and I am committed to offering a white glove service, providing them with a dedicated marketing team, administrative support team, and all the necessary resources they need to build a thriving business for themselves and their families.”
Hanson says ensuring agents and their families are protected as they pursue their self-employed path is equally as important to her. With PLACE, she’s able to prioritize agents’ well-being by offering comprehensive health insurance options, life insurance options, retirement stock options, personalized coaching, and encouraging a focus on their overall health and wealth. Her goal is to enable her team to thrive both personally and professionally.
Director of Operations Michaela Arneson values her team’s culture and appreciates Hanson’s commitment to further strengthen the team through the new partnership. “Stefanie’s unwavering belief in everyone’s success is remarkable, yet she understands the limitations of time and resources. That’s where PLACE steps in, offering invaluable support to agents in their journey of building thriving businesses,” said Arneson. “With the addition of PLACE by their side, agents can take those significant leaps forward, unlocking new opportunities and achieving their goals. Stefanie’s vision coupled with the assistance of PLACE is an empowering combination, ensuring that every agent’s potential is unleashed and their dreams become reality.“
