Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties

35172 Edwards Street in Cooper Landing, Alaska

Corner Lot fronting on Sterling Highway

You never know where a buyer will be coming from, locally, across the nation or anywhere in the world.  I recently had a client come from England.  It is important to market globally.  An excellent example is the property at 35172 Edwards Street in Cooper Landing, Alaska.

The property is located about two hours from Anchorage and is a gorgeous drive and you can often spot animals providing excellent photo shots.  This a mom and pop grocery store with groceries, homemade pizza, sandwiches and sometimes a daily special.  

There are three apartments upstairs, two of which are currently being used by the owners and the other one rented out.  The view from these second story apartments is fantastic.      

Tourists come from all over the world and stop at the Cooper Landing Grocery store which is on the way from Anchorage.  The fishing is excellent in season and hunters come during the winter.

They load up on food and snacks and buy souvenirs.  My brother, Mitch, and my sister-in-law, Glenda Mitchell own this unique property and Mitch has a home cooked special of the day and prepares great homemade pizza.  I found it interesting that a best seller in the store is ice cream and locals know when it is coming in and are lined up with their canisters to get it. 

Everyone spends a little time in the store talking.  One group was from Rockwall, Texas where I live and sell homes.  They knew who I was and talked about what was going on with me.  It is a small world after all and we should target our properties globally and I want my listings to seen anywhere in the world.    

WANTED one good Commercial Realtor.  I am doing pre-marketing for Mitch and Glenda while I am searching for a good Realtor in their area.  The agent who had it listed came out two times, one time to put the sign up and the second time to take it down and never contacted him.   

Realtors please contact me if you are interested in marketing the Cooper Landing Grocery Store.  We are looking for a Realtor who will present a written marketing plan and keep in touch with them on a regular basis and provide links to the marketing that is being done.  At least 25 good photos should be taken.  Providing a good virtual tour of the areas driving in from Anchorage and the surrounding areas.  Virtual tours and videos are what people like to see.  

Business is wild and crazy during the tourist season and Alaska is a unique and and often rugged country. When you are passing through Cooper Landing, Alaska you will likely stop at the Cooper Landing Grocery Store be sure to say hello to Mitch and Glenda Mitchell and tell them his sister said to say hello!

I am searching for that one above average Commercial Realtor to list this unique property with unlimited potential.  We are searching for someone who will treat the property with respect and market it globally.  Call me for an interview, and I will put you in touch with the owner to get the property, the Cooper Landing Grocery store listed.  I encourage you to start interviewing soon as they are ready to sell.

Anita, I have found a commercial broker I think will be perfect.   He is an ActiveRain member, how cool is that?

Kathy, I talked with the agent and that is when I found out he is in ActiveRain.  His bio is awesome he contacted him immediately, missed him, left his card and they should make face to face today.

Keven, I talk talk to a gentleman who is also an ActiveRain member.  He sounds perfect and recently sold the property across the street from this one.

Rain, what a great name you have! We have located one and should be seeing that listed sign go up quickly.

David, thanks for taking a peek at this, it is beautiful country and we have already located the agent that should get this sold.
