Experienced & Reliable
- Associate Broker, ABR, GRI
Wasilla, AK 99654
2017 is my 14th year as a REALTOR®! After my 20+ years in the construction industry, from carpenter to senior management, I changed careers to real estate sales. Being able to use my experience and learn more each day has been rewarding, and I have been a consistent top producer.
Born in Kalispell, Montana, I grew up throughout the Pacific Northwest. My first experience of Alaska was Ketchikan in 1981. It made such a positive impact on me, I returned to Ketchikan with my bride-to-be, Karen, in 1985. Our family of five moved to the quiet city of Palmer in 1999 and are very happy to call the Mat-Su Valley home.
I love the challenges and opportunities to help my clients realize their goals and dreams. Over 50% of my business consistently comes as a result of being recommended by a past client or friend! That’s how I like to measure success.
On the home front, my wife has a challenging career as a counselor. My daughter teaches first grade in Navajo New Mexico. My two sons live here in Alaska. Karen and I really want a grandchild, but the kids just aren’t cooperating! We love all the blessings Alaska and its people have to offer — especially in my case, GOLF — and truly believe this is God’s Country.

"We worked with Dave on the sale of our house, he was very professional and helpful. I will definitely contact him in the future, and refer him to any one who asks."
-Gerald harrington, Client
"My property was in need of some upgrades. Dave pointed out which ones would be more effective. I also had a problem with proof of the deed being paid off. Dave coordinated with the title insurance company and we were able to close in a timely manner.My property was on the market approximately one week before Dave had an acceptable offer. I enjoyed working with Dave. "
-Barry & Shirley Stigerwalt, Client
"Dave was nothing short of a blessing in helping us prepare and finalize the sell of my mom's house. If there was repairs to be made, and I didn't have a person lined up, he would make a call and it was already done! I never realized how much goes into selling a house, but I now realize how many little pieces there are to it and Dave put the puzzle together with patience and determination. Our situation was a sensitive one. We were selling my mom's estate. It was hard to face that. He helped keep me on track gently directing me through every step of the way. I could never have done this without his help and still maintain my sanity! Before I knew it, it was sold and closed and the hardest part of this all was saying goodbye to the home I grew up in. Thank you for everything Dave! We will call you as soon as we are ready for our new home!"
-Jessica Lindquist, Client
