Erik Hatch is an entrepreneur, public speaker, RealtorⓇ, author, coach, investor, do-gooder, husband, father and mediocre golfer. Erik has nearly 20 businesses that he owns and/or operates with the help of some tremendous partners and 2 non-profit movements that have raised more than $3 million to help serve children and families in need.
As an alum of Fargo North High School and North Dakota State University, Erik has called Fargo home for the entirety of his life. It’s where he and his wife Emily met and the same place they’re raising their kids, Finley and Simon.
Right out of college, Erik went to work as a youth minister for nearly a decade. It was there that he really fell in love with cultivating deep relationships and harnessed his passion for inspiring anyone he crossed paths with.
Erik started Hatch Realty in 2014 with a dream to create a place where he could pour into people and help them create runways to reach their dreams. Erik knew – when feeling seen and appreciated – these same great people would deliver world-class service to their clients.
While this driven entrepreneur serves as CEO of Hatch Realty, his energy is now spent casting vision, marketing the business and leading and coaching people.
Erik’s goal to foster great relationships while staying ahead of industry trends led to the transition to Real Broker, LLC, in August 2021. With Hatch Realty at the core, this partnership with a national brokerage allowed the team to continue taking care of their clients while offering powerful tools to better communicate in this tech-driven world.
A servant leader at heart, Erik founded Hatch Coaching in 2016 and, as a result, launched his first book, “Play For the Person Next To You: A Guide to Servant Leadership,” in 2019. Through his work, Erik has been recognized as a top 25 real estate coach in the country.
Why does Erik Hatch do what he does? Because he wants to change the world, one person at a time … and he’s crazy enough to believe he can.
