Hi, I'm Ken Jelinek with REMAX of Eagle River in Eagle River, Alaska.
First Time Home Seller or Buyer? Upgrading or rightsizing? Or, maybe investing in rentals? Pick a time. Let's talk and meet and see if we can work together? You bring the real estate goal and I'll show you have to make it happen. Call me!
With my website here, you can view ALL of the homes on the market in ALL of Anchorage and the surrounding areas, including Wasilla, Palmer, and the Mat Valley. With REMAX.com you can find virtually ALL of the homes on the market everywhere in the USA! Even if you find a home that is For Sale By Owner - or one in Nevada, Texas, Kentucky...Anywhere - call me anyway. I can arrange for you to see the inside - or refer you to the best realtors in the area who can!
More Ken Jelinek:
How long have you worked in Real Estate? How long have you worked in the area?
I was licensed in 1994. The first three years were spent in property management. I joined REMAX Properties in 1997. In 2013 REMAX “merged” with another local brokerage and became REMAX Dynamic Properties. I've been with REMAX of Eagle River, which is a bedroom community of Anchorage, since October of 2015.
Have you received any awards for excellence?
I have received plenty of recognition for my production, achievements, commitment to excellence and creativity over the years, but I stopped keeping track of all that. Instead, I try to focus on recognizing others for their achievements and accomplishments.
Do you work for any kind of local charities or nonprofits in your community?
I do not work with any particular charities or nonprofits other than contributions to Providence Hospital's Children's Miracle Network. Again, I enjoy committing Secret Random Acts of Kindness as I go about my daily routines.
Where did you go to school/college?
I attended a junior college before transferring to Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA where I earned my BA in Economics with a Minor in Business Administration.
Did you serve our country in any capacity? Where were you stationed?
I was in Air Force R.O.T.C. During my first two years of college but decided against going any further after that. A lot of my decision had to do with growing up in a military family and feeling like I had served, even though I had not.
Can you provide a few words to describe your work ethic?
I'm committed to being present and giving 100% of my attention to getting whatever job "done" that needs to be done. Time is relatively irrelevant when I'm working. When it's time to work, I'm working.
What are your favorite pastimes or hobbies?
Sailing has been one of my interests since I was 11 but over the years - and I've done plenty here in Alaska - but lately, being "between boats", I've been taking a break. And now, with more time on my hands, I've enjoyed many outdoor activities - including SCUBA, Sky Diving, Hiking, Climbing, Camping, Fishing. I also ran the Mayor's Marathon in Anchorage, AK at 23. My time was 3:31. (I'm kind of proud about that)
BONUS: What is one inspirational quote that speaks to you?
It's easier to fool people than to convince them they've been fooled. ~Mark Twain
Life is hard enough without fooling yourself, so don't fool yourself. ~JOAQUIN
