Get to know Rich Harter
I am the Broker/Owner of Alaska Life Realty in North Pole, Alaska. I have serviced the area and clients for many years with all their Real Estate needs. After spending many years working for the large corporate Real Estate companies I decided that I could better serve the community and my clients by starting my own Locally Owned and Operated Real Estate Company.
Starting my own company has allowed me to meet my clients needs and aspects of the business that I thought was lacking by working for the franchise companies, With my company you are really a client/friend and not just another transaction being pushed through the ranks and passed off to others along the way. I do not believe in the team mentality of Real Estate, I do believe that each client gets the personal service they deserve and the respect and recognition of working hand in hand with their professional Realtor. I will strive to meet all your expectations and needs.

Testimonials for Rich Harter
My home in Fairbanks required extensive renovation and repair in preparation for sale. Utilizing a rich network of service providers and tradesmen, and a personal depth of experience and knowledge of the process, Rich quickly and effectively moved my house through what I had expected to be a long and arduous process. Rich then worked tirelessly to market my property, quickly found a suitable buyer, and brought the sale to a timely close.
From renovation and repair to close, Rich consistently demonstrated a powerful work ethic, personal integrity, and follow through. I found him the consummate professional.
My experience was extremely positive and I remain very pleased with the results. I would utilize Rich Harter's services again in a minute.
We met Rich when we made an appointment to view a house, I went with my instincts and Rich was the Seller's Realtor, not always a good idea but Rich didn't disappoint. He was honest and straight forward throughout the Negotiation Rich came back with good news every time, we got everything we wanted and ended up with our dream home. Rich is very knowledgeable of the local area and will pullout all the stops to make his clients happy. Rich is highly recommended in every aspect of a buy or sell.
We had the privilege and opportunity to work with Rich Harter. Rich defines what and how an experienced, professional, knowledgeable, and caring realtor supports clients. His keen insight and drive led to us finding the perfect home for us. He was prompt, fair, straightforward, and insightful to our requests and desires for the entire home purchase process. He coordinated with everyone, from our Mortgage Company, seller, Title Company, etc., and always kept us informed on any success or bumps in the road. He has a great network of resources to support a homeowner's request from inspectors to electricians. Rich is the entire package any buyer could expect of a realtor. We look forward to our continued contacts with Rich and will seek him out for our future endeavors.
Rich is a hard worker and will go over and above what is asked. We have had 3 different Properties, all three listed with Rich and all sold within a very short time, Cold weather, Rain or Shine, he had people looking at our properties. Again, Hard Worker, Honesty, Trustworthy and Totally a true Proffessional in his field., this is his driving force. Would refer him anytime.
Rich was an absolutely incredible buyer's agent. His straightforward honesty and immediate responsiveness took an incredible load off my shoulders. He really cared about getting us into a home that we liked, and I felt that was his first and foremost concern. He confidently stood up to the sellers agent on the day of closing when there was a surprise attempt at more money and went out of his way to make sure I was not ripped off. He even managed to resolve it before I had even had time to become involved after getting the call at work - so fast my blood pressure never had a chance to rise. He never rushed a walkthrough, he always showed up early, he met my inspector and the appraiser both and performed the walkthroughs with both. He helped me notice what the inspectors missed (did a pretty good job of it too)- I heeded his advice whenever possible and never once regretted it. Again, I think that he didn't care about making money, he cared about making us happy. We dragged him to a lot of houses, and he was always positive and never seemed tired or anxious for us to make a decision! He was exceptionally knowledgeable about local areas and programs. I couldn't do him justice in just saying how glad we are that we went through him. His absolute number 1 trait was his honesty and positive confidence. Great guy and more importantly, a great buyer's real-estate agent.
Rich was one of two realtors recommended on Dave Ramsey's ELP. It is true when Dave Ramsey says he only recommends top notch, professional agents. Rich called me back promptly after I sent out my initial email. On his first visit, he was professional, cordial, and highly knowledgeable on real estate. The day we listed our home was an exciting day and truly an example of his exceptional hard work and ability as a top-notch realtor. We had an offer within 5 hours. Needless to say, we sold our home. Then, after 6 months, Rich helped us purchase the home of our dreams. Rich possesses the integrity, experience, knowledge, and work ethics of a top realtor.
