From Our Clients...

"We enjoyed working with Sam. He was personable, experienced in the real estate market, responsive, and went over and beyond what we were expecting out of a realtor. While we were traveling overseas, he met with contractors at our home and solicited bids to correct home inspection items, and played a key role in helping us sell our home in less than 2 months from list date to recording date. We highly recommend his services. "

From Our Clients...

“We really appreciated the outstanding service provided by Sam Daniel at Glacier Realty! He made the process of buying our property as smooth as possible and helped us make the purchase we have desired for years a reality! He provided excellent guidance and an idea of what to expect every step along the way. We highly recommend the team at Glacier Realty, especially Sam!"

From Our Clients...

“It is no small matter to buy a home, but to buy it somewhat sight-unseen from thousands of miles away (literally the opposite corner of America), that’s an impressive challenge. Thanks to the exceptional professionalism and service of Rebecca and Glacier City Realty, our family was able to do just that.”

From Our Clients...

“We appreciated your positive, professional attitude and patience with a challenging deal. Everyone we worked with had a very positive outlook. We really felt like you were working hard for us to find us the right property. Your wealth of experience in real estate and in Girdwood in particular was very helpful as we searched for the right property for us. You were very responsive and good communicators. Your advice and perspective was invaluable to our search.”

From Our Clients...

“Rebecca with Glacier City Realty found the house I purchased before it was on the public MLS website and ensured that I was able to view the house very quickly. It was her prompt and efficient work that helped to insure I was the first, and only offer on the house I bought. Rebecca was always willing to schedule showings, even at the last minute and she would drive into Anchorage for these showings.”

From Our Clients...

“You guys were very patient in working with me and the sellers. Between this being my first home purchase, kind of a funky place, a FSBO, and my wife being out of state, I’m sure it wasn’t the most cut and dry purchase. But you were really patient in making sure I understood how the process worked and you did everything you could to get us into the home that we were really interested in, despite some challenges.”

From Our Clients...

“Very good grasp on Girdwood market that lent itself to successfully determine the proper market value to sell this property. Also liked Sam’s style and easy personality in dealing with listing/offer issues. Very straight forward, which we appreciated.”

From Our Clients...

“Everything went perfectly thanks to Jackie and her office. I felt as a far away customer (florida buying in Alaska) that I was just beyond lucky in working with Glacier City Realty. If I have future real estate questions or needs I feel confident that I know the right number to call and would recommend that office and Jackie to my friends with confidence.”

From Our Clients...

“Sam was very patient and understanding about my special needs and requirements in my search for a more suitable condo in Girdwood, so that I could buy in exchange for selling my current one. When I finally saw the right one, he helped me every step of the way in getting all the buying and selling details correct. Any time I had a questions, whether it pertained directly to the sale or not, he spent the time necessary to get me a full correct answer- and still does today- weeks after the exchange took place. Sam was recommended to me and I recommend his service to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in Girdwood, Alaska.”

The professionalism and attention to detail was top notch.We chose to work with Sam and Rebecca because of our friendship throughout our community.
