We’re excited to announce that Taylor Hird is joining CENTURY 21 Signature Real Estate. She is joining Gina Swanson’s team and will be working from our Urbandale office serving the Des Moines area. Read her interview below to learn more about Taylor! 

About Taylor Hird:

Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from and what’s your family like?

I grew up in Grimes and currently live in Des Moines with my husband and our black lab, Zeke.

What are your hobbies?

When I’m not busy with real estate, I love to spend time outdoors with my family. You can find me on the trails in Des Moines walking our black lab or enjoying a patio at any local restaurants.

What did you do before becoming a REALTOR®?

Before I became a REALTOR®, I worked for NASCAR at the Iowa Speedway as the Marketing Manager. One thing that was really enticing about real estate was the ability to work with people on a daily basis. One of my favorite parts of my past job was the ability to work one-on-one with fans and make their experiences something they wouldn’t forget. I can’t wait to bring that service to my future clients.

What is your favorite neighborhood in Des Moines/Ankeny/Ames/Cedar Valley/Pella?

One of my favorite parts of the metro is Urbandale. I love the neighborhoods around Lakeview Park. The mature trees, parks and access to amenities are a few things that make it so unique!

What areas will you be serving?

I will be serving the Des Moines area.

What are your biggest strengths? What can your clients expect from you?

My biggest strengths would include my communication skills, background in marketing and sales, and my work ethic. My clients can expect me to always be a positive presence throughout their home buying or selling processes. Buying or selling a home can be stressful at times and I will always bring a smiling face with a positive outlook on any situation.

Why are you passionate about being a REALTOR®?

Purchasing or selling a home is a major milestone in anyone’s life. Whether you are purchasing your first home, looking for something larger to grow your family or looking for your last home, I want to be there for you through the process. I can’t wait to be part of your story in this crazy thing we call life.
