… our house sold in only a few weeks.
I recently sold my house with Anchor properties. Bennett McGrath was very responsive to all my requests regarding the sale of our home. After listing with Anchor Properties our house sold in only a few weeks. We had already moved out of Petersburg, and Bennett took the ball and ran with it. After closing I requested additional information which she provided efficiently and professionally. It was a pleasure working with Mrs. McGrath. I would highly recommend her if buying or selling your house in beautiful Petersburg, AK.

… I knew she would help us sell no matter what.
Deciding to sell your home on a small Alaskan island is by all means not the most promising of decisions. When I had purchased my home it sadly sat on market for 2 years before I came along, so I wasnt putting all my bets on getting our house sold as fast as one dreams. Asking Bennett to represent us was a no brainer since I knew and liked her. She is charismatic and to the point and I knew she would help us sell no matter what. Even though as months moved on and we got closer to our departure date, Bennett was trying her hardest to ensure we were happy and still positive that the right buyers would walk in. We had to lower our price (to still a profitable return margin) a couple times to push more local interest but if we wanted to sell compromises needed to be made. Bennett was there to help guide decisions as buyers took interests and offers were made. Even after my husband and I had already left the island, Bennett was prompt on communication and let me know when the house was being toured and how things went. Happily, the right buyer came along and Bennett professionally represented both parties and in less then a year my home was sold and I hope to believe that the buyers are ecstatic as I am. Thank you Bennett for being a go-getter and helping us sell our home and making the start of a new chapter in life more focused! You’re AWESOME!!

… a pleasure to work with, very trustworthy …
Our experience with Anchor Properties was excellent! Bennett and Lindsi were fantastic to work with for the entire home-buying process! We are first-time home-buyers and they walked us through all of the complicated steps with patience, kindness, and expertise. Any questions or negotiations between us and the seller were handled smoothly and quickly. They were a pleasure to work with, very trustworthy, and they definitely know their stuff.
We also rented a house through Anchor Properties. The rental contract was processed while we were living in a remote area and Bennett got everything set up for us so we could move in the day we arrived!
We are so thankful for Bennett and Lindsi and all their help and hard work during the renting and buying process!

… stayed in contact but never pushy.
Mrs. McGrath sold my property near Petersburg in four months without any problems. Since I live several hundred miles away, I was needing someone who would check out the property, the bordering property, and walk the lot with anyone and everyone who was interested. She had to do some research about adjoining properties, their rules and laws. She stayed in contact but never pushy. I would happily use her again.

… the service was rewarding and refreshing …
Wonderful communication, communication, so much appreciated!! We had set some parameters for the house we wanted to buy in Petersburg, AK., and with Bennett and Lindsi’s help the perfect house was matched for us. This all happened quickly right at Christmas time when everyone was busy with holidays, but both individual’s went the extra distance to make sure we were able to purchase this home. With holidays looming, we were unable to view the house in person, but Lindsi actually did a very comprehensive virtual tour. Once we were in our house there were no surprises, the virtual tour was very efficient.
Bennett was our personal representative, here are a couple examples of beyond normal service; she was out of town during the holidays but worked with us day and night, yes, even after ten at night; she had limited internet service so went to a casino in order to get internet service to send us contractual forms!! She explained our questions and if she didn’t know the answer would get our questions answered promptly. Even after the sale was complete Bennett called to make sure everything was satisfactory.
We would recommend Anchor Properties for anyone wanting to do a real estate transaction, the service was rewarding and refreshing to know somebody would contact us when we had a question.

… no one else would have gone the extra mile …
From the very start you were so helpful in giving me information about the area, suggestions and great advice. Your knowledge of the area, the customs of the people, local traditions, geography, real estate values, services available in the area, etc is very extensive and proved invaluable to me.
Everything you promised to do you did and more. You went beyond the normal services provided by a good realtor, which far surpassed my expectations as a buyer. I will not go into detail, but suffice it to say….no one else would have gone the extra mile the way you did.
If a person is new to the area, they would be wise to choose you as their personal representative in locating and purchasing the perfect property for their wants, needs and price range.
If the buyer is a local person, I would highly recommend if they do not already know, taking the time to do so and considering using you as their realtor for either selling a special property or locating that dream property. I can personally guarantee they will not be disappointed with your integrity, honesty, follow through and the personal interest you take in doing the best job possible for not only the buyer but seller as well.
Please accept my deepest gratitude for a sterling job.
And best of all, I feel the beginnings of a potentially lifelong friendship have been forged during our delightful business negotiations. A friendship based on honesty, integrity and mutual respect.

She has a great perception about the local real estate …
I would like to write a review about our experience with Anchor Properties, because she was the right person to help us in selling our property. Selling our property from a distance has not been easy. We’ve heard good things about Bennett, so we decided to try her. She has a great perception about the local real estate market. She kept posting everything close to us so we know what was going on. On top of that, our renter was moving out and the closing happened at the same time. Our property was never vacant. How did she do that? Amazing experience that everything went smooth as though everything was planned. Thank you so much!

My Real Estate Angel
Bennett responded almost immediately and began a professionally orchestrated open phone and email dialog of “information gathering,” to assess my personal needs, time constraints, budget, etc,. All of which I felt gratefully relieved that I really had someone helping me out on the other end. At one point she even said to me, “Don’t worry, I’m not going to let you go homeless.” I appreciated that a lot, believe me.
When I arrived in Petersburg Alaska, she met me at the AHMS Ferry Terminal in the dark. She welcomed me to town and simply said, “Follow me to your new rental home!” It was at that point, that I knew for sure that I had just met my Real Estate Angel, Bennett McGrath.
Three months later on exactly Valentine’s Day, the very day Bennett had predicted, I closed on a beautiful little waterfront home overlooking the Wrangell Narrows!

… she goes out of her way to meet with us …
We wanted an agent who would keep us informed about what was happening with our listing. Bennett assured us that she would keep us posted on what was happening, as well as what was not happening. It was,also, her practice to keep a log of all communications with us. In the brief time that we have been in contact, she has been true to her word. With the help of technology, we have had frequent conversations. Since we live on an island, it is more difficult for physical contact, but she goes out of her way to meet with us when we’re in town.
As to innovation — After our very first meeting, Bennett arranged to come to our island, take her own pictures and videos, walk through our woods, take note of the history, and discover the uniqueness of our property.
She definitely meets our criteria.
— Gary & Arlene Williams
… rare combination of friendliness and professionalism …
Her work is extremely accurate and her high standards present themselves in every aspect of the job at hand. Bennett is detailed oriented in every aspect. She was able to answer all of my questions with accuracy and told me when she would need to research one of my questions then get back to me with the proper answer. I could depend on her to make this a positive experience.

… attentive and willing to help us …
She was quick to answer emails and gave us different options within the price range we needed, but also with the necessities we wanted to be in the house. She did a walk through with us and helped us to point out anything that needed to be apart of the paperwork. She came the next day with a warm welcome of flowers and to check how our first night went.
Pat, the maintenance man, was friendly, and willing to fix anything necessary to make our stay better. He was quick, attentive, and got the job done the first day. We could not have asked for a better set of people to meet initially upon coming to Petersburg, Alaska.
