My love for adventure is what brought me to Alaska in 1977. After working in rural Alaska for the telecommunications trade, I became partners in the Sheep Creek Lodge in 1980. After operating the lodge for 12 years, we sold it in 1992. During that time, I married my wife, Karla, and we now have two wonderful children.

My desire to help others and my knowledge of the local area is what led me to become a realtor in 1992. I served on the Valley Board of Realtors for 6 years. One of those years, I was elected Board President. I also received the honor of being elected Realtor of the Year. I have earned the real estate designations of ABR (accredited buyer's representative) and GRI (graduate of the REALTOR Institute). I am a licensed broker and am proud to be affiliated with Keller Willliams Realty Alaska Group. I recently received my Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation. I am particularly proud of this designation because I am now trained to help sellers that are behind in their mortgage payments find a solution to their stressful situation.

I don't take my responsibilities lightly and feel that it is important to give back to my community through participation in local agencies. I am currently Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Children's Place, which is a nonprofit in the Mat-Su Valley that serves sexually and physically abused children.

I love to share my knowledge of the Mat-Su Valley and experience with the local real estate market with both buyers and sellers. My team has the same love for the Valley and are also happy to help you with your real estate needs. Please give us a call at (907)357-4663 or 1-888-822-8353 or email us at kibe@mtaonline.net.
