Alaska Realty Experts Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I seldom take part in social media discussions or provide opinions and reviews, and when I do, they are usually to complain about shoddy workmanship or unprofessional behavior.

In the case of Alaska Realty Experts in general, and Brittney Brower in particular, I am making an exception. This is because she is simply extraordinary! Since about last August my wife and I have developed a dream to move to Alaska. However, since we are both well over seventy, several considerations had to be met, the distance to proper medical facilities being paramount. Additionally, because of my years of collecting tools, books, and other items (see hoarding), we needed a property with enough storage area to house these “treasures.” Therefore, for the next few months I would fly to Alaska to look at properties recommended by Brittney. As winter approached the housing inventory was drying up, especially those with our requirements. Although we submitted several offers, these did not pan out. We finally realized that our search for this dream house would have to be postponed ‘till the following spring/summer. However, Brittney did not stop looking. On the eve of winter she located the “ideal” property. Since we were still living in Nevada, we relied on her expertise and made an offer, SIGHT UNSEEN, which was accepted. Despite the geographical challenges, Brittney tirelessly continued to ensure that the purchase and closing came to fruition. Her efforts were not limited to the real estate issues. She also assisted with numerous personal matters and transportation services to various venues, including the airport in the early morning hours. Without reservation, I highly recommend Brittney Brower and the Alaska Realty Experts, for any of your real estate needs. Be assured that you will be well taken care of.

Brittney Brower is amazing!

!! We met Brittney while visiting Alaska and she took time out of her weekend to show us multiple houses in our price range back in January. We live out of state but decided to make an offer on one of the homes. Unfortunately/fortunately that one fell through but Brittney kept sending us houses she thought we'd like. In April, the perfect house came up and she text us and told us to jump on it right away. Brittney did a video call and gave us a super thorough tour of the house. She pointed out every detail she thought we'd like to know about (good and bad) and put in alot of time researching the area. We placed a bid on the house and ended up going into a bidding war. She was extremely knowledgeable about ideas of what we could do to help have the buyers choose us. We ended up getting the house. Brittney went back and forth multiple times to the house for many occasions and went way above and beyond by helping us repair some items so the house would close. People thought we were crazy buying a house another state but we felt extremely confident. Brittney made this experience a great one and really helped us learn about Alaska and what our daughter will need to do and prepare for when she attends the University there. I will definitely call Brittney again for any real estate needs!! We can't tell you how much we appreciate Brittney but you will not go wrong by choosing her. One of the hardest working agents we know!

First of all, Brittney Brower and Travis McGrann are the best!

From house shopping to getting an offer accepted and finally to closing, Brittney was very helpful, knowledgeable, and transparent. They made sure and worked hard to get us to closing in a timely manner despite of many many delays beyond their control. My first home buying experience wasn’t a breeze but Brittney constantly reassured me that we are going to close and all I really had to do was to be patient. Can’t thank Brittney and Travis enough for helping us find a beautiful home we now call our own!

I am a first-time homebuyer, and Brittney found me a condo that met my needs and budget.

She was amazing at walking me through the whole process and gave honest recommendations on everything from making a solid offer, requesting home repairs, and home insurance contacts. She made it comfortable for me to ask any kind of question and gave timely responses to every single inquiry I had. If she did not know the answer, she knew the right people to contact. Even after the purchase, Brittney followed up to make sure I had everything I needed. It was a very smooth transaction, which I’m sure was a result of her hard work behind the scenes. She is knowledgeable, energetic, transparent, and very trustworthy! I highly recommend working with Brittney and the whole ARE team! They care for their clients, know the business, and are willing to go above and beyond to help with your real estate needs.

"I cannot possibly recommend Travis highly enough! I reached out to him on the recommendation of a realtor in another city. I was nervous about using someone I had never heard of. But from first contact, Travis made himself accessible and available at all times without ever being pushy. He recommended making a few updates to our home prior to putting it on the market to maximize the potential sell price. We took his advice, and the home ended up selling for $25k more than we anticipated. We got the money back from those updates, several times over!Travis ALWAYS answers the phone (or calls back quickly if unavailable). He is friendly, approachable, honest, flexible, and so willing to go the extra mile. He did so many “little things” throughout our transaction that just made the process a million times easier and less stressful. I would recommend him without reservation!"

"As first time home buyers, my husband and I had the greatest experience working with Travis! He was with us every step of the way during our custom build and he made the entire process so easy and flawless. He was always quick to answer any questions we had—and we had a lot! He makes you feel as if you’ve known him for years, all while maintaining the utmost respect and professionalism. I can not recommend him enough, he was an absolute pleasure to work with! Thank you Travis!"

"Travis is a high energy agent with strong communication that I would absolutely recommend and use again. Even though I was out of state for the sale Travis stepped in consistently providing the extra leg work and communication that were particular to this sale. His efforts resulted in a smooth and timely sale process. My wife and I couldn’t have been happier with the work Travis did for us."

"Met with Travis on multiple occasions to go out and view houses. Taught me some of the ins and outs of buying a house and renting it out. Wasn’t too pushy to get a deal done, made sure I found exactly what I was looking for."

"Travis did an outstanding job working with me. When we met, mu home had been poorly managed for several year, unknown to me. When I took possession of my home, it was destroyed. Through Travis' wealth of resource, knowledge, and ethic I have SOLD MY HOME!!!I am a military officer and I believe that Travis' past experience also as a Military officer was very much appreciated and attributed considerably to why my sale was successful."

"Spectacular performance from the entire A.R.E. team! We began our home buying adventure out-of-state, but Travis was able to facilitate showings virtually. Communication was clear and timely, and Travis was patient and thorough when answering all of our questions. Travis was a joy to work with; he is personable, fun, and funny, but also maintained the highest level of professionalism. We will absolutely be calling on A.R.E. in the future for a recreational property!"

"We teamed up with Travis to find our first home. We were a little intimidated going into this process since we had no idea what to expect but we ended up having the easiest, fast and fun experience. We were in constant communication and every question was answered so quickly and efficiently. We will recommend Travis to anyone looking to buy or sell!!"

"We had a wonderful experience working with Travis when buying our new home. He was very responsive, helpful, and knowledgeable. He also has connections in the community to help make the whole process run smoothly (for example, he help set us up with a property management company to rent out our current house in a short time frame!). We will definitely use Travis for any home-buying or selling needs in the future, and we recommend him without hesitation!"

"Travis did an amazing job helping us to navigate the buying process. He always got back to me quickly and was ready to show us houses the day after I told him which ones we were interested in. The sellers of the house we decided to buy were particularly difficult and Travis had no problems getting everything we asked for and more. I would recommend him to any friend who is thinking of buying a house."

"If you don’t use Travis for your real estate needs, you're making a huge mistake. Travis has gone above and beyond what a traditional realtor would do with every single step of my home buying process. I wouldn’t have found my first home if it wasn’t for his dedication. From our first meeting, I got a really good feeling from him - he's honest, not at all pushy, genuinely caring, and so easy to get along with (my mortgage broker actually was thrilled to work with him because of his reputation of being pleasant and easy-going). With super low interest rates, the housing market has been crazy, but Travis made me feel like I was his only client showing me houses after work hours, on the weekend (It cut into his biking time with his wife), and I think we looked at 20+ houses. My budget wasn’t huge and I was a little picky about my wishlist, but he managed to find it! Additionally, since this was my first home purchase and I'm 24 year old single mom of an adopted teen, I was scared throughout the whole process and almost backed out so many times out of fear (seriously, buying a house is stressful) but Travis was so helpful with reassurances and explaining everything throughout the process. He's very apt with his people skills too and learned quickly (before I realized it) that I just needed to hear that it'll be okay - that was a big little thing that made the process that much easier for me. He also used those people skills well with working with selling agents and worked really hard to make my home offer the strongest. Additionally after closing on the house and moving in, I found out one of the negotiated home repairs wasn’t done. Travis dealt with it right away all the way down to coordinating someone to come and dealing with payment. It was huge. Another little big thing was the housewarming exp gifts, such a kind gesture that really made our house feel special. You can't find a better realtor in Anchorage."
