2018 Candidate Slate | Vice President
Kyle Hansen, ALC
My work career started as a crop scout in SW Kansas before relocating back to Iowa to work as an agronomist for a regional cooperative, then transitioning to an agricultural banker before starting with Hertz Real Estate Services as a real estate agent. I have been a real estate agent since 2008 and received my ALC designation in 2011.
After receiving my real estate license I immediately became active in RLI and the Iowa Chapter serving as the State’s RLI Chapter President during the 2012-2013 year. I currently serve as the Iowa Chapters Land Trends and Values Chairman and have done so since 2011.
I have been on several committees and task forces on a National RLI level. I am on the Future Leaders Committee and have been since its inception, serving as the chairman of that committee in 2015 and 2016.I am currently serving on the Budget and Finance committee preparing financial reports in the Treasurer’s absence. Have been apart of the RLI Governance Policy task force, Rising Star task force, RLI By-Laws task force, Chapter Development task force, and Membership Involvement, Growth and Value task force. I am a past recipient of the Rising Star Award in 2014 and ALC-ALC Networking award in 2016. I have presented at the Round Table discussions at the National Land Conference, assisted in the Cowboy Auctions at multiple NLC and have been a presenter at the most recent Land Conference in Charlotte.
I am a Nevada Iowa Rotary member, have served as Treasurer for Nevada, Iowa Chamber of Commerce, who awarded me the Harold Fawcett Community Involvement in 2014. I have also been the Treasurer for Jefferson, Iowa Chamber of Commerce, and mentor for Greene County Iowa Kids with Connections program.
My vision for RLI is to become better recognized as the organization for Land. National Association of REALTORS® and RLI have started to build a better relationship in years past and I want to continue to build on that relationship through joint publications in our newsletters and better organizational marketing. Improve exposure from not just a farmland, ranches, recreational or timberland organization but to also include transitional/development land. Improve on the educational needs of agents to better understand different aspects of real estate. To work with staff, past leaders, and future leaders to identify ways to allow for better participation of new members and to offer mentoring program for better involvement and sharing of knowledge. Our organization thrives on the willingness of members to reach out and assist new agents/members and make them part of this family, REALTORS® Land Institute (RLI).
