Michael is dedicated and passionate about every detail of your real estate transaction. Michael was born and raised in Ankeny, Iowa and has always exhibited a talent for sales and customer service. He attended the University of Iowa, graduating in 2006 with a Business Associates Degree and a Degree in Social Psychology. After graduation, Michael relocated to Phoenix Arizona to pursue his career. Michael spent 9 years in the recycling industry and worked in many facets of the business – specializing in sales and operations.
Michael relocated back to Ankeny in 2016 to raise his family in his hometown and chase the family business. In three short years Michael has established himself as one of the Top Agents in his area, being awarded the DMAAR Circle of Excellence Award all three years in the business. His clients will tell you his passion and dedication come through in every transaction. Although, he is always willing to listen and learn new business strategies you could say "Selling houses is in his blood" as he is preceded in real estate by his father and business partner, Steve Hidder, as well as his Uncle Greg Hidder and Grandfather, Ernie Hidder.
While Michael is enthusiastic about Real Estate, nothing can outweigh the love he has for his family – his wife, Dejian, and his three boys - Weston, Oliver, and the newest addition Rowan. He enjoys dedicating time to his community and spending time with his family; riding bikes, going to the park, and having water fights. He also has a weakness for a good "lazy afternoon" on the couch with the family, eating popcorn and watching movies. Michael is an avid sports fan and never misses a chance to cheer on his teams.
