Why Public Adjusting?
Josh Hansen has a love for the Public Adjusting career that was fostered from the tragedy of his family losing their entire home and all of their belongings in a fire at the age of 16. Little did he know that 15 years later he would get the opportunity to help so many family’s through the process that his own family struggled through.
Josh Hansen - Family
Josh was born and raised in a small town of Linwood, MN. Linwood is located west of Wyoming, MN on county road 22. Josh grew up loving sports, especially baseball. Josh went on to become an all conference captain of the Forest Lake High School baseball team. Upon graduation, Josh continued his baseball dream at Highland Community college in Kansas, then on to Mcneese State University in Lake Charles, LA. Though he loved his travels to Kansas and Louisiana, he was always called to return home where he grew up hunting and fishing with his 2 younger brothers, sister and parents. Family has always played a vital role in Josh’s beliefs and that family bond will only strengthen as Josh and his girlfriend Kari embark on raising their baby girl Bella.

Josh’s road to the Public Adjusting role was a unique one. Prior to becoming a public adjuster Josh helped his family run their 11 pizza shops and a convenience store. Josh states that this helped him understand logistics. After the pizza business, Josh worked for two separate construction companies that focused on restoration of homes after storm events. This is where Josh learned to be proficient in Xactimate, and learned what it takes to restore a home after a loss. In February of 2013, Josh and Troy Johnson, saw an opportunity and formed The Adjustment Firm. Over the last four years they have seen personal and professional growth that has been above and beyond anything they could have expected. Josh and Troy find it vitally important to attend seminars and broaden their education every year. They have been certified as appraisers and umpires by both the Wind Network and the IAUA. They have been certified by the IICRC through both their Water mitigation and fire classes.
