I just sold a house!  You say, "You are a real estate professional, I would expect you to sell a house!"  Let me explain.  Back in May, I received a call from a party that owned a home in Anchorage.  They had moved from the home 18 months prior.  They had tried to sell the home two years ago, wit...

The optimist in me is always watching for signs the Alaska market is getting stronger.  The truth is Alaska has been very lucky compared to many cities. Blessed, even!
