Anchorage Honoluolu Meetup for December

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Best Homes Hawaii RB-13537

On Christmas Day, we plan to go to Anchorage for business and a 2 week winter experience. The  is Dec 26 through Jan 7th.  According to Active Rain membership data, there are around 750 Active Rainers in Alaska.  Surely, there are enough for a meet-up!

Bruce Vanessa Hicks Christmas 2017Did you have a great Thanksgiving? Vanessa and visiting mom in law, were up in the early AM and preparing turkey and food!  It was a fun day but a long one.  Vanessa’s pumpkin crunch was a winner.

Is there a possibility for a Hawaii and Anchorage meet-up somewhere? 
If someone locally could arrange getting us together, that would be grand! Is anyone up to the challenge?  It doesn’t have to be fancy, even your favorite fast food establishment would work, or the food court at a nearby mall. How about it?  Maybe this is your chance to invite a NON Active Rain person, agent, lender and get points for them signing up.  Let’s network! 

Weather here has been CHILLY for us, around 60-65 degrees and 20-25 MPH winds and will get back to 80 this weekend.  Typically, it’s around 75-80.  Been a while since we’ve experienced snow or below zero in Alaska.

Debra Leisek - Guessing that Homer is too far away from Anchorage?

Katrina Benton - in Anchorage, You could shine with this meetup! Others to reach out in Anchorage Alaska might be Marianne Grant Vanna Siackhasone Pauline Hofseth Patrick James and Yvette Belisle

Larry & Jacque Ficek, we understand Wasilla too far as well as Cheryl Campbell, Kristan Cole
Jesse & Kathy Clifton and Robert Rucker, along with Fairbanks being far away.  We visited there several years ago and all the way to North Pole.

As with most places across the nation, Hawaii Real Estate is a Seller’s market.  Supply low, demand high.  Typically, three bedroom 2 bath home on 5,000 square feet of land runs in the $600,000-850,000 range according to how far away from Honolulu you can handle.  A three bedroom condo or townhouse will run in the $400,000+ range.  Studios might run around $200,000.  Check out one of my websites http://www.besthomehawaii.com/ which is a direct connect to the Honolulu Oahu Hawaii MLS. 

Then you have a condos constructed by Howard Hughes Corporation in the six to 20 million dollar range. http://besthomeshi.com/  Bruce W. Hicks, Realtor® RB-13537

Good Morning Bruce Hicks 

Alaska is a beautiful state. I worked there on a temporary assignment many years ago. May I suggest this Alehouse?  "Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse" is its name. Great Halibut and Salmon.

I never saw this at all till just now Endre Barath, Jr.  thank you for letting me know

the list may show 750 but there doesn't seem to be any active Alaska AR people. I know many of the names and have poked at them a little but to no avail. A new person signed up and I did follow her and send a message.

Jesse Clifton left AK after his Kathy wife passed. He and she were quite active until then. He took beautiful pictures and they had wonderful blogs. We had a good connection

Katrina... I am not sure she lives in Alaska I reached out to her... but she seems to be licensed in many states, does reports in areas I know she is not in like Kodiak....

Larry & Jaque log in every day but they dont blog...

Alaskans are different I Guess.   We had a AAR state meeting once where the key speaker made fun of AR as a nowhere place to be... his name was and he asked who was on Active rain...we raised our hands and he made fun of us.... after that it seemed like I was alone in the rain! 

So I am sorry I didn't know about this meet-up... I probably couldn't have come due to personal reasons  but I sure would have responded!

Bruce, this would have been so cool.  I wanted to meet Debra, but went fishing for the WHOLE day, and still had a long ride back to my hotel.
