We both have decades of experience, we take pride in constant and continual learning, training and evolving to be better for our clients.

Larry is a Montana transplant and fell in love with Alaska from the minute he arrived. He understands the draw to move to this amazing state. If you need any fishing tips, he is always willing to share that advice as well! He has been licensed in real estate since 1997. As a Broker/Owner that is actively selling real estate, Larry is known for being a leader that shares both from past experiences and current trends.
Larry is extremely well versed in negotiations and the current status of the market and local micro markets. He thoroughly enjoys the exploring the different facets of real estate, being on top of current trends and techniques. Larry likes to be on the cutting edge (near the bleeding edge) of technology with everything from bringing the 3D Tour to our market back in 2015 and being a Licensed Drone Pilot. He is often working in the background with computer programmers to create better systems within the office. He is definitely the tech and numbers guy!
Jacque was born on Elmendorf AFB and is an Air Force brat. Her pop served 23 1/2 years and was stationed all over the US and Tripoli Libya. After his retirement in 1982, the family moved to Wasilla Alaska and has been here since. Jacque also has a background as a Palmer and Wasilla police officer so she knows the back roads, the neighborhoods and their history very well. She became licensed and joined her husband Larry in real estate in 2001 and achieved her Broker Associate License soon after.
Jacque is known for being on top of everything that hits the market. She has a memory of homes and prior sales like no other. Jacque takes the time to research properties, hunt their backgrounds with prior sales, DEC, prior disclosures and neighborhood intel. It is extremely important to her that the buyers have as much knowledge as they can to help them make the best possible purchasing decision.
The sellers also have the benefit of her keen attention to property attributes and what different buyers may look for. When a home goes on the market, those home features are highlighted in several ways through a myriad of techniques. The potential buyers have all the info they need (even if they didn't realize it was important to them) without even stepping inside the home.
When they view the property in person or virtually, they leave the home armed with information specific to that home and area. All of the details are simply not available in any one format so the techniques are varied. Our listings are known to be easy to show because of this. We have had many compliments for helping buyers (and their licensees) learn more about our listings through these techniques.
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Dream Makers would love to have the opportunity to meet you!
