|Wendy Steward, Benefits Specialist, Chugach Alaska Corporation|
|Even though I was a first time home buyer, I knew exactly what I wanted, but I couldn’t find it. Pauline helped me find a builder for my plan, helped me work through the design phase with him and stuck with me all the way through closing. She made herself available to answer questions and always kept my interests first and foremost. I would highly recommend her to anyone.|
|Luke and Yvonna Augenstein, “Happy clients”|
|The greatest quality about Pauline is her personal integrity and she works harder than anyone else. Most importantly, she is thorough. She had the foresight to write in a 10 day extention on the sale of our home, just in case the new home wasn’t quite finished. It wasn’t. Without it we would have been on the cold street at Christmastime. Instead it was a smooth transition.|
|Pastor Joel and Beth Reyes|
|Pauline is very professional and we have enjoyed her services during and after our home was built. She helped us with the builder have several items repaired after closing. She is very thoughtful and remembers us every Christmas. She’s kept us up to date with current real estate news and trends. We would recommend her highly.|
|Penny and Tim Bundy|
|We lived in Soldatna and only had a short time to find a home in Anchorage. Pauline provided excellent suggestions, but she also listened to our needs and made the home buying process easy. We were extremely pleased with her service and expertise. She stops by to check on our satisfaction and lets us know what’s going on in real estate. Unfortunately we may be moving in the next several months and we will ask Pauline to sell our home.|
|Michelle & Tom Bybee|
|We were first time buyers and not sure of how to go about finding the home we wanted. Pauline helped us figure out what we wanted, found us a house, and got us things that we never would have though to ask for. She made buying a home fun and easy and very rewarding. We would recommend Pauline to ANYONE thinking about buying a home.|
|Betty Jean and Fred Olin|
|We especially appreciated Pauline’s patience and persistence as she searched for the home we wanted over a year and a half period of time. Of course we wanted it all: space, specific location and price. And she finally found it. At all times Pauline kept our interests in mind and never tried to “rush” a sale.|
|Jess Ellis, DDS, Endodontist|
|Need seasoned, honest help in real estate? I had a property that needed some fixing up to sell, and I wasn’t getting it sold myself. Pauline saw that it was fixed up properly and at the least cost to me, and it sold. Then, I had an employee who wanted something nice but affordable and needed a creative advocate to qualify for a mortgage. Again, I called Pauline.|
|Pauline is a person who can be approached any time and listens to whatever you tell her. Whenever I had a question, she always returned my call and answered my question. She knows how to get things done. She’s a one of a kind.|
|Pauline listened to my desires and concerns about owning a property. She not only responded in a timely manner, but she didn’t push. Her attention to my needs gave me the opportunity to purchase the home of my dreams.|
|Christy & Gary Lehnhausen|
|We appreciated Pauline’s patience and diligence in helping us sell our home and purchase a new one. We tried for sale by owner first, but it didn’t work. Not only did Pauline get us a good price for the home we sold but she also helped us negotiate a good contract on the home we purchased. We also appreciate her experience and wisdom in protecting us from potential bad deals. Her persistence and hard work really paid off for us.|
|Sallee & Mike Baltierra|
|We bought our first home from Pauline. When we decided to sell our first home and move to a second home we called her. We thought we could sell our home by owner, but people kept driving by. After we asked Pauline to sell it, we got full price in a short time. On our new purchase, she showed us homes while we were hauling around newborn, 3 & 5 year olds. She ran paperwork to the mortgage company and even picked out paint for the painter. She always had a smile and I never once got the impression she would rather be doing anything else. She really has a knack for visualizing sketchy information and turning it into reality.|
