This is Alpine

This is real estate at its peak.

A Modern Real Estate Agency

Established in June, 2017, Alpine was created using the real estate principles and practices of today, not yesteryear. Free of a rigid structure designed in the past, we have unlimited flexibility to incorporate new and different ideas. From the framework of our business model, to the technology we use. Welcome to the next-generation of real estate. The future is bright.

Change is Good

Our Approach

This industry has relied too much on focusing on the bad. Making it overly complex, and purposefully instilling fear in customers. Then selling guidance and expertise as a life vest, while using it to justify high fees. It’s an approach that works, but it can be misleading.

Alpine simplifies real estate, and focuses on the good. We believe people make better decisions when they are relaxed, having fun, provided with plenty of the right information, and full of confidence. Real estate done in a positive way. That’s our approach.

Promoting Community Growth

How We Give Back

Alpine donates a portion of every sale to local non-profits and charities through our community re-investment initiative. We also volunteer our time to youth activities. It’s our small way of supporting and promoting the community at large.

Intelligent Framework

A Vertically Integrated Company

Leveraging technology and putting our broad skill sets to good use, we consolidate virtually all aspects of our business to in-house work flows. This allows increased efficiency, tight quality control, less similarity, and greater flexibility to be creative and adaptive within our industry.

How We Excel

We credit our success to excellence in key areas.

Total Transparency

The most transparent agency. From our processes, to our commissions, with client transactions, and everywhere in between. We believe in total transparency. And it shows.

Better Communication

We boast unrivaled accessibility. Communicating across all platforms. A high-touch agency, not high-volume. Clients get exceptional service and care, with agents always at the ready.

Lower Commissions

Having an efficient business framework enables us to save as a company and lower commissions for clients. This improvement benefits everyone involved; sellers and buyers.

Technology

Some services we offer you can find anywhere, but others are exclusive to Alpine. Investing time and resources in technology that advances our capabilities and the client experience.

Our Mission is Simple

We set out to accomplish what we think can and should be improved in real estate to benefit everyone involved. The idea has never been to best the competition and steal away clients. Instead, our efforts have resulted in attracting like-minded people who are looking for a positive real estate experience. We’re proud to continue to promote and pioneer change that achieves winning results for our clients and our business.

Our Story

A Conversation that Started an Agency

It all started in a little place called the New York Cafe, located at the heart of downtown Ketchikan.  We were just two like-minded individuals who discussed opening a real estate agency over some lunch. By the end, we shook hands and agreed to quit our respective jobs. What happened next was nothing short of just mediocre. Truly not that exciting. Just conversations about real estate for months.

The end result, however, is a dynamic agency designed to tilt the results back towards the clients favor. We kept the best of what works in real estate, and changed the parts that were out dated. In short, we developed our agency with modern real estate principles in mind.

The establishment would not take kindly to us. Yet, we continue to press on. We never stop asking the question that started it all, “How can we make it better?”. Perhaps the next time we’re having a discussion over some lunch, more answers will come. Until then, the changes we’ve made make us unique. They’ve created a positive impact on our local real estate market, in a small town, surrounded by picturesque mountains and beautiful alpines at their peaks.
