Erik Hatch loves his family and is deeply passionate about leadership. He uses real estate as a vehicle to impact the world.
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.
Giving back is engrained in Erik. He has helped to build 2 non-profit movements that have raised over 5 million dollars to help serve kids and families in need.
A servant leader to the core, Erik’s desire is to be a chapter in as many books as possible. His first book, “Play for the Person Next to You,” launched in September 2019. Erik’s 2nd book titled “The Perfect Real Estate Agent Blueprint,” launched in July 2022 and is redefining how this industry serves its clients and agents.
