Sam Goldman – Broker
I am a devoted and highly motivated broker with Alaska Built Real Estate LLC. After purchasing my first rental property I began to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Real Estate Finance. I continually study the market and the latest trends so my staff and licensees and I can connect people interested in purchasing real estate with the right property to meet their needs and desires. I am a member of the Realtor Organization and the Mat-Su Home Builder Association. I enjoy working with first time home buyers as well as investors.
I have a background in the construction industry that has lead me to work hand in hand with many builders and local developers. I am the exclusive representative of Robert Yundt Homes and I am excited to put new home buyers in their own custom 5 star plus homes in some of the hottest neighborhoods of the Mat-Su Valley, as well as finding land and multifamily buildings for investors.
I strive to use cutting edge technology which allows me to not only respond and communicate with my clients instantaneously but also to scour the MLS and market for properties.
I am an extremely hard worker and an assertive advocate for my clients. When I am not busy working you can find me exploring hiking trails, fishing spots and savoring all the great Alaskan outdoors has to offer!
Augustus Cook — Property Manager
Augustus Cook is a property manager in the Mat-Su Valley. His entire professional life has been spent learning about the intricacies of Real Estate so he could effectively handle the encumbering task of property management. To him, there is no such thing as too much work or an impossible task. Instead, he tackles every day with focus and enthusiasm.
Mr. Cook spends most his time trying to better himself to stay competitive in his industry. Out side of Real Estate, he enjoys his time by working on his car, snowboarding down a mountain, rock climbing, or binging T.V. shows like a champion.
Robert Yundt II – Account Executive
I am a 3rd generation carpenter and was born and raised in the Matanuska Susitna Valley. My brother and I built and sold our first home when I was 20 years old, and in 2004 I went on to start my own construction company, Robert Yundt Homes. Since then I have built and sold over 100 projects, from single-family homes to 32 unit developments.
I sit on the board for the Mat-Su Home Builders Association as President Elect, and was the 2014 Builder of the Year for the Mat-Su. Since the start of my career, I have become one of the largest developers of multi-family units in the Valley, and own and manage many of them myself. My experience in Property management spans 12 years, so I understand the needs of both the renter and owner and work diligently to make the entire process as smooth as possible.
I spend as much of my spare time as possible with my wife and our 6 kids. I’ve represented Alaska around the world as both an amateur and professional athlete and hold the same hard-working mentality across all aspects of my life.
MacKenzie (Mac) James – Property Manager
Mac’s main focus as a property manager, is to build a bigger network while spending the time connecting with people to better understand every personal situation. She grew up renovating, remodeling and revitalizing rental properties with her parents which sparked her passion to start a career in real estate. Seeing the effort and dedication her dad put into starting his own business managing properties, showed her how valuable investments are for a financially stable future. Aside from appreciating the determination it takes to own a property, she understands the importance of exceptional management and how detrimental it can be without it.
Previous experience in customer service since the age of 14, she volunteered at summer camps while working retail before moving from Fairbanks to attend UAA majoring in business marketing with a minor in psychology. With her creative desire to fulfill every passion in life, she started a small business specializing in cake decorating for large events and party planning packages while managing properties for her dad on the side. The accelerated pace of real estate finally satisfied her craving for constant movement which keeps her striving to accomplish every challenge.
In her free time spent with her family, she enjoys baking desserts, trying new flavors of Halo Top ice cream, taking road trips around Alaska, making a mess with spray paint and glitter, watching sci fi movies and hiding diamonds from her son, in minecraft.
