3rd Generation Anchorage Alaska Real Estate Professionals

Thank you for choosing  Michael & Decker Real Estate for your real estate needs. Born and raised in Anchorage, we are first cousins, and third generation Anchorage Alaska real estate professionals. Our grandmother Nafla Michael came to Anchorage in the early 1950’s and shortly thereafter started her real estate career. In pursuit of her dreams and to support her five children, she became one of the most respected and successful real estate developers in Anchorage. Her spirit lives on and it brings us great pride everyday in what we do. Anchorage and its surrounding areas are beautiful, exciting, and adventurous!

Our knowledge of Anchorage, Eagle River, Chugiak, Palmer, Wasilla, and Girdwood, are second to none. We have lived in Alaska our whole lives, which gives us a unique understanding of these communities. We have a firm grasp of market trends, market values, investment climate, neighborhoods, schools, and more. Our exceptionally high rate of referrals is a credit to our “one on one” approach, which allows us to create long lasting relationships and trust. We are always available and strive to make the process hassle free with all aspects of buying or selling. From coordinating and recommending inspections to title insurance, our experienced staff will keep you updated and current every step of the way.

Both of us love what we do and with our 32 years of combined experience can guide you through the process, using our expert knowledge and skill. Whether you are buying a home, selling a property, looking to invest, or are relocating to Alaska, we want to work with you and earn your trust! We love having the ability to help people achieve their real estate goals, and look forward to meeting great people in the process. Being able to share our communities that we both love and call home is incredibly rewarding! We would love to hear from you

“I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you on this transaction. Your professionalism and follow through was a really a refreshing change of pace. I would love to work with you again in the future and would like to send you some referrals if you wouldn’t mind.
Let me know and I can have my assistant come pick up some business cards.”

“Hi Richard and Heather,
First thing I want to tell you is what a pleasure it is to work with you as the seller. You have been absolutely terrific. And, that goes for Heather as well, I have been very impressed. Any chance I get to speak of you I will, and sing your praises. Yes, my son and his wife are so excited about this home. We have been looking for almost 2 years. It is not easy to find a 6 bedroom home in this price range in this immediate area. They have 5 children that will not have to change any schools. It is perfect! You have been so accommodating and fair, I can’t thank you enough. And Heather, you are an absolute delight and very professional!
Thank you both again for a wonderful transaction as we wind down here.”
Best Regards, CB
