Shane's motto: You only get one chance to make a first impression. (So he tries to remember to comb his hair after taking off his wool hat.) his personal challenge: Its not easy being a Realtor in Alaska's largest city- you really have to love the extremes of weather, long summer days vs. the short, dark winter ones, and the constant "switching gears" that is required when talking about $5,000 recreational lots one minute...luxury homes the next. He already consider himself to be a new construction expert, but he works especially hard at being a re-sale expert as well. He spends several hours a week studying sales data to determine what the market is doing (today). After 28 years and 4 value cycles he thinks he's finally got this market figured out. His pledge to you: You will thoroughly enjoy working with him and his team. His advice to buyers: Buy low- but only after getting good, reliable information. His advice to sellers: Sell high...and remember his personal motto!
