"We got phenomenal results - we had two competing offers before it even went on the MLS! Wes and his team always go above and beyond to tell you the truth. Wes is a very driven person and he wants to succeed. He has trained his team that way also. They are all about getting that house sold or finding the right home for the buyer. I've worked with him both buying and selling my house. The fact they work in a team environment, there's always somebody watching your back in every phase of the transaction, and that gives me a lot of comfort."
I would highly recommend the Madden Team for buying and selling of a home. They are focused on getting the sale done, for both the buyer and the seller, since I have been both and hope to buy my next home from them again soon! They can get houses sold!!!
The best thing about working with the Madden team was the "T E A M" concept. Everyone has a role and a purpose which increases the response and effectiveness of the process. "A great experience"!
One hard working group that will find you the right home!
We met Wes Madden at the IBA Parade of Homes a few years ago. A year later, when we were ready to sell our starter home and upgrade to a larger house, he was our first choice. We were stunned to have 2 offers on our house after one day on the market. Wes then led us through a house sale process. At the same time, his knowledgeable staff helped us to find and buy a new house.
Being a busy family with two boys active in sports, we approached Wes about being our son's sponsor on his hockey team Arctic Lions. It's good to know we have a trusted real estate agent in Wes Madden and a supporter of youth sports in town.
To anyone considering purchasing land in AK, I would highly recommend the Madden Team. Although I was familiar with the area where my land was, I was inexperienced in the process of how to acquire real estate. Jewel, then Randi, to the rescue there! My situation as an out-of-state buyer may not have been what they were used to - a single mom from PA wishing to own a little piece of AK - but I felt as if they really 'listened' and gave of their expertise to make my dream a reality.
If you are serious about selling your house, get Madden!
The Madden Team made buying our new home a great experience. It was a pleasure working with Jewel and Randi. It made the purchase of a home fun.
Jewel has a real gift for matching people with houses.
The Wes Madden team took our new home purchase very personal, as if they were part of the family.
This team is amazing! They are helpful, knowledgeable, and willing to do what ever it takes to get the job done.
I would recommend the Madden Team for all of your realestate needs! They are very friendly and professional and they get the job done!
I was living far from the location of Fairbanks and The Madden Team understood what I needed and wanted. There was no showing me what they wanted to sell me. They showed me exactly what I wanted and needed. Their attention to details I would overlook was excellent. I bought a new car and paid cash for it. Then I went to Madden and saw Ethan and Randi. I had the title on the house and was moving in before I got the title to the car.
I was very pleased with my overall experience. I felt comfortable throughout the buying process and felt that everyone was honest and upfront about everything.
We began working with Jewel in the fall of 2010 after Madden Real Estate was able to sell our old home in just three days! Jewel took the time to listen to our wants and needs in a new home. She researched options and showed us what was available on the market at that time. During the winter months when the market slowed, Jewel explored other avenues with us such as purchasing a new construction home. She connected us up with Stepping Stone Builders who worked with us to fine tune the floor plans and with whom we ultimately signed a contract. Jewel continued to work with us through the remainder of the building process. She was always accessible and prompt in answering our questions. We now own a beautiful, brand new home with which we couldn't be happier. Our family is so thankful for Jewel. Her expertise, initiative, knowledge, and honesty cannot be beat!
Jewel is an amazing lady, well spoken, extremely knowledgeable, if she advises it, do it. I just closed on my first house, and she took care of me the every step of the way. Thanks again Jewel, I am truly grateful.
I highly recommend the Madden team we bought our house sight unseen from Las Vegas Nevada which was a little scary but Christina was our eyes and ears all the way and made everything easy. We could not be happier. Thanks a million Christina!
The team concept used by the Madden Team provides several professional contacts that can keep you updated and informed.
I recommend working with the Madden Team because of the friendliness of the staff and how they make the home buying process a wonderful experience. They do everything they can to make sure everyone is happy in the end!
Without knowing anything about Madden Real Estate I began using their well laid out and informative web page. It could not have worked out any better! Brandon made the purchase of my home very enjoyable. He was very patient and forthcoming with his time and knowledge. If he didn't know the answer to a question I asked, he found out and promptly got back in touch with me. I'd highly recommend Madden Real Estate and have already!
Not only would I recommend Madden Real Estate to my friends and my family, I would tell anybody who's looking for a great real estate agent to go see Christina Barron. She was professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She answered all of my stupid questions without ever making me feel stupid. She pushed me without ever seeming pushy. She was patient enough to show me a wide range of houses because I wasn't sure what I wanted. She was intuitive enough to take me to houses she thought I might like. She has a great sense of humor that made the whole experience fun. Christina didn't just find me the perfect house... she found me a wonderful home. Thanks you Christina you're SUPER GREAT! And thanks to the whole Madden team.
This was our first time buying a home, so it was important to us that we work with someone who was able to explain the entire process to us. This is where the Madden Team excelled. They were always able to answer our questions and were very patient with us.
I have dealt with many realtors over the years and I must say the way that the Madden team worked together was, "to say the least" Breath Taking. All seemed to work well and keep the seller informed and once the offer was in they worked with speedy efficiency... Totally organized and professional...Well done team.
This is the second time we have worked with the Madden team and their knowledge and dedication will bring us back to them in the future. The Madden Team takes all the hassle out of buying and selling real-estate. I am very happy with the service we received from the girls at the front desk to Wes himself. Thanks you are all great.
We have purchased four homes in the Lower 48, but our move to Alaska was by far the easiest because of the Madden Team's outstanding customer service. Our agent's responsiveness and willingness to go the extra mile to find a home that met our unique needs resulted in us arriving in Alaska to the perfect home for us and our four children. I highly recommend this team, which exceeded our expectations and will ALWAYS have our business.
There were certain factors that were important to my decision to buy in Fairbanks. I communicated these to Ethan and he knew exactly the properties to show me. Ethan was confident and well informed about the property. Working with the other team members at Madden made the complete transaction smooth from start to finish!
Charlie and the entire Madden Team listened and responded to our housing needs in a manner that portrayed true honesty, competency and understanding.
I highly recommend The Madden Real Estate Team. Buying a home is a personal and sometimes a difficult process. The agents are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and timely. They work as a team and someone is always available to answer questions. My favorite thing about The Madden Team is that you are treated like family.
Buying a home is a wonderful experience, using Madden services will guarantee that your efforts receive the best results possible.
I would recommend their services to EVERYONE! I couldn't have asked for anything else. The entire process was easy!
Ethan and Randi were great. I bought my house while living out of the state and they covered all the bases and kept me informed and up to date. Everything was done in a very efficient and streamlined manner. They would be my number one choice if I were to do this again. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
They were very pleasant to work with, quick to get things done and have great knowledge at everything they do!!
There have been a lot of people who I work for or who work for me that have PCSed and out of all the Realtors Wes is without a doubt the best.
I would highly recommend The Madden Team for all your home buying and selling needs. They are eager to please and take significant pride in their work. Thanks for all your hard work Madden Team!!!
This is the second time to use Wes Madden Real Estate and both times exceeded my expectations. The entire team is very knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile to sell your home or to find the home to suit your needs. I am very pleased with both the purchase and the sell of my home. My home sold extremely quickly and I did not have to worry about trying to sell and purchase a home at the same time. They do everything they say they will do and I would highly recommend them to all my friends.
Me and my wife had a wonderful home buying experience. There organization, professionalism, and efficiency is unprecedented. Our experience couldn't have been better.
I liked how in each step of the process we worked with someone who was very knowledgeable about that step!
Since this was our first home buying experience and we were new to Alaska, we knew we needed to find a Realtor that really knew their stuff about realty and especially about ALASKA! We found that at Madden, Jewel, being born and raised in Alaska had insight into so many things that greatly improved our buying experience from the permafrost to the crows! She put up with our schedule, our questions, us not having a vehicle at first, and our crazy personalities! She was professional, courteous, and patient through the whole process! Every day we are so thankful for our home and we feel so blessed to live in Alaska. I know we are meant to be here. We were in the right place at the right time to get this wonderful house! And thanks to Jewel, Wes, and the rest of the team, we are home!
Wes and his team were great to work with. Very knowledgeable about the business and easy to work with and communicate with. I would encourage anyone who is interested in selling their home to work with Wes and his team. They also have a lot of momentum going in the community selling homes.
The Madden Team did just what they said they would do in a professional manner.
We have had the excellent experience of recently selling our home with the professional staff at Madden Real Estate. We have completed over ten previous real estate transactions with varying degrees of satisfaction. Results are often a good indicator of effort. The Wes Madden team sold our house, within 1% of the asking price, in the first week it was listed on MLS. It might have even been the first day. In any event, it was fast. The insightful marketing plan and seller access to near real time transactional information at maddenrealestate.com was a great help to keep us "in the know" on how things were proceeding with our transaction as well as what steps would be completed next. Ours was a seamless transaction. From the pre-listing meeting with Wes, to staging the home, the Madden team was there to offer support and service. I highly recommend Madden Real Estate.
We had a great experience with The Madden Team. Our buyers rep was always available to show us a house and answer all our questions.
They were always helpful. Every time I called, my call was returned immediately. The Madden Team is the most wonderful people that I have ever met. They were always trying to help, always trying t do the best for me especially when I was not sure. Christina was always advising me to wait until I find what is best for me.
I would like to take this opportunity to whole-heartedly thank the Madden Team for the quality home-buying experience my wife and I recently went through. Everybody we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. Most notably, Jewel Addison worked closely with us in a patient and professional manner, and cast a highly positive light on the Madden Team.
As out-of-state buyers we chose your team through an internet search, under the assumption that one Realtor was as good as another. During this process I learned that is not the case and that we were quite fortunate to have put ourselves in your hands. It became readily apparent when dealing with Jewel and yourself that you were naturally people of good character and everything you did and said reinforced that feeling. In my opinion, there is nothing more important in such complex dealings, and you should pride yourselves in delivering such a sense of trust and integrity.
Jewel was incredibly helpful, patient, friendly and professional throughout the process. While I was visiting Fairbanks to search for a house, one offer fell through (due to a competing offer for which you gave great strategic advice, but I didn't feel comfortable taking) and she was right there to help me with the next one. Even though the second offer looked more promising and we eventually closed she was very accommodating of my desire to continue looking at houses in the short time I was there so that I would have backup options.
During the contract period, Jewel and Randi were always paying attention to the details, cheerfully reminding us long in advance of issues and deadlines that were coming up. Although Jewel had tactfully advised us that using a lender familiar to her would be much more efficient, we chose to go with our own Montana lender, and this turned out to be a big mistake. Fortunately, once it became evident that our own lender was not working out as hoped, Jewel was able to set us up with a Fairbanks lender in a matter of hours, and things went very smoothly thereafter. To other buyers who might feel wary of using a lender recommended by the Madden Team, I would suggest seriously considering this. The recommended lenders understand the peculiarities of the Fairbanks and Alaska markets, and have a proven track record of working well with the Madden Team.
In short, I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to work with Jewel and the Madden Team, and feel like you always had our best interests at heart. I would enthusiastically recommend your team to others!
Jewel was awesome! She took care of things before I could even ask. As a first time home buyer she is a dream come true.
The Bottom line is that Wes, Jewel, Randi, Jeri and the rest of the Madden Team get results! Even in today's market, The Madden Team was able to get Sofia and I a fair price for our home, and they did it in a timely manner. If you're looking for a Realtor who is going to just tell you what you want to hear, then Wes may not be your guy. However, if you are looking for an honest, hard working Realtor, then look no further. I highly recommend Wes and the entire Madden Team.
Wes Madden and his wonderful team (especially Jewel who is a real jewel) helped us more than we can ever explain in words.
Our family took a job (short notice) and moved from Eagle River, Alaska to Fairbanks in September 2008. We were fighting some deadlines. We were in a hotel for 20 days and then had to be out. We also were working with a Realtor in Eagle River who had not been very aggressive in trying to sell our home. Wes and his team very professionally and expertly guided us through all these obstacles including helping us to pick another Realtor. Within 2 weeks of obtaining a new Realtor, our home in Eagle River sold. Wes' team also was very patient and showed us several homes eventually helping us to find the beautiful home we now live in.
Jewel was ALWAYS available to us by phone or email. She always had her blackberry going and answered all our questions no matter how silly or trivial. She always treated us with great patience and respect. We were able to close on the home we sold in Eagle River and on our new home here in Fairbanks within a few days of each other and she helped us have funds transferred from Eagle River to Fairbanks. What a relief that was!! There were so many other little bumps in the road along the way to closing but Jewel and Wes were always so positive and helped us navigate them all. In this time of financial uncertainty it was essential to move quickly and Wes and his team were able to do that for us. It saved us thousands of dollars and many hours of worry and headaches. We highly, highly recommend Wes Madden and his team and cannot say enough good things about them.
Our experience with the Madden Team has been outstanding. Jewel Addison did an amazing job as our buyers agent. She helped us narrow down homes to look at and arranged showings before we came up in July on our 9 day house hunting trip. Her knowledge of the area and of the local builders was immeasurable. Buying a home in Fairbanks is a daunting task especially in the short time frame we had. But Jewel helped us with the unique Alaskan details and got us excited about buying a home basically before it was built. We are extremely impressed by the quality of workmanship that Rick Watson put into our home and will recommend him whenever possible. We appreciated Jewel keeping us up-to-date on the construction, sending pictures during the process and negotiating details with Rick mostly via email. We were able to move into our new home just 10 days after arriving in Alaska. We look forward to working with the Madden Team to sell our home when we leave and will definitely recommend them to friends and fellow service members.
I'd like to say thank-you for all yours and the Madden's teams help with buying the house. The effort and support that you and the Madden Team brought to the table was outstanding. Again thanks.
You are a "go getter" and we really appreciated everything you did for us. Angie was awesome- super sweet and if she didn't know something she found an answer for us!!! Thanks for everything!!!
If you need a new home Madden is the way to go.
The easiest and most exciting part of buying our home was working with the Madden Team. They were extremely helpful from finding our home to working wiht the bank to make the whole process easier.
I would highly recommend the Madden Team. They stuck with me through all of the ups and downs of trying to get my home sold. Despite frozen pipes, back-out bidders, short sale paper work, and readjusting of the appraisal price Team Madden was there for me. Selling my home was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, and having the Madden Team as my Realtors made it so much easier for me to deal with. They are caring and compassionate, which is great because selling a home can be very stressful. I don't know what I'd have done with out them. They stuck with me the whole time. I am so thankful to have had them as my Realtor. Wes has much experience in selling homes. He has a wealth of knowledge about buying and selling homes, and also can recommend great and trusted repair men, appraisers, and adjusters. He has the nicest ladies that you could ever hope to meet working for him, too! Thanks so much Madden Team! We've come full circle now! You helped me buy my home, and now you've sold it. Thanks so much!
I would suggest to anyone selling a house to use Wes Madden. I really enjoyed the customer service, and lets face it Fairbanks has the worst customer service in the world so the Madden team was a breath of fresh air. As a whole the team works fluidly and you can feel secure due to entire staff's competency and great attitude.
Wes, it is not often enough that I say "Thank You". Sara and I were very impressed with the professionalism and care that when into helping us find a house, we can call home in Alaska. Please pass my sincere thanks and gratitude on to Christina for her time and care. She made the whirl wind tour of Fairbanks and North Pole effortless. Hope to see you in June. Again, to you and your team- THANK YOU!
Hey Wes - A day later it's finally sunk into my thick skull that you sold our house at full price with no crazy surprises in sharing closing costs or giving away 350 gallons of diesel... not to mention I thought the price you were targeting was a pipe-dream. It's official: I rate your office 5 out of 5 shovels, that's how much I dig-it!
On behalf of my family, I would dearly like for you to know just how truly gratefully we are to you, and with Wes, and his whole team, for blessing us with an extremely rewarding new home here in Fairbanks. I did not think it possible to purchase a home in just five weeks and then buying it while traveling 'on the road in America' during a wonderfully successful book selling tour. By your diligence, accurate knowledge, highly ethical sales practices, and genuine kindness to duty and my family, we have the home that found us five years seeking and we are a family blessed by happiness most uncommon. I am so pleased to recommend you and the Wes Madden team to Fairbanks residence, and they may contact me to see for themselves of what I speak when I say "recommended success" by doing business with you and your company. Also, we are very grateful to Wes for advertising via the Michael Dukes Radio Show, for this is where my family and I discovered you and your amazing reality group. Thank you again for making our home buying experience a marvelous one-in-a-life-time event in so many wonderful ways.
Very cordially yours,
Montana Kid Hammer,Fairbanks Cowman Novel
This was my first house purchase and the Madden Team worked tirelessly at insuring we got the right house for us and did it while I was half a world away. The proficiency and dedication to taking care of our need enabled us to return from deployment and close on our new home two days later. If everything in life were handled with the attention to detail that Wes and his team showed us life would be good.
I've bought and sold more than a half dozen houses over the years, in several states, and have never had an experience remotely comparable to my experience with Wes Madden Real Estate. Everything was seamless and handled perfectly, from my listing realtor Chick Wallace, to Ryan--the best home photographer I've ever seen--to specialists like Jackie and Randi in every stage of the listing and sale. It's a stressful thing, selling one's home, and I can't imagine being better taken care of than I was from start to finish by everyone at Wes Madden.
The sale of this home was in tough market. Mix of services provided was excellent. I’ve only worked with one realtor in past who handled transactions this well.
The Madden Team is the hands down the best team I have ever had the pleasure of working with on selling my home. They were honest, helpful, knowledgeable and swift when it came to knowing the real estate business. I have worked with other companies in Fairbanks and this company has been the best. We’ll never again choose another company.
Time efficient and smooth!!!
During the home buying process receiving return phone calls can be difficult. Sometimes days would go buy without a call back from the bank. At that point I would rather go with someone else that wants to return my calls. Christina returned all my calls when she was not immediately available, as did Jenn. If I had a problem with the bank or anyone else calling back Christina was on the phone getting the answers I needed. Two thumbs up to Christina, Jenn, and the rest of the Madden Team.
If you’re serious about selling your home, the Madden Team will get it done quickly and smoothly. From the comprehensive network to the professional staging and photographs, the Madden Team has everything you need to sell your home.
The ninjas of the real estate market.
I would recommend Madden Real Estate to anyone who is looking to buy a house in the Fairbanks area. As a first time home buyer I could not be more satisfied with my buying experience. I could tell that everyone that I came in contact with understood, and was willing to go above and beyond to find a home and then to close on it. And even though I only worked with a few people on the Madden team, as I walked through the door I was always welcomed and greated, usually by name. I don't think for a second that I would have received the same experience from any other realty office in town.
I would highly recommend using a buyer's agent from Wes Madden Real Estate, particularly to first-time buyers. They would guide you through the (highly complicated) process and save you a lot of time and hassle.
Thank you for making our home buying affair a very pleasant experience. We felt at ease throughout the entire process, and with much confidence knowing that we had a friendly and dedicated group of professionals by our side. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the folks from Madden Real Estate to all my family and friends.
Madden Real Estate got results in record time and for our asking price; we would utilize their services again!
The Madden team made buying our home very easy. They had all of the answers to our questions that we needed to make important decisions about our future home and everyone was very friendly. There was never any pressure during the entire home buying experience. If I ever need real estate assistance in the future, Madden Realty will be the first place I call!
We are so pleased with our experience with the Madden Team. Christina Barron worked very hard to find exactly the right home for us. She kept us up to date on the process and we always felt very well taken care of. If you're wondering which real estate team to use to buy a home, stop looking! Call Christina with the Madden Team! You'll be glad you did!
Moving our graduate student from Texas to Alaska was a scary prospect. The Madden Team made it possible not only to locate and secure a place for her to live, but also to feel confident that she would be safe and happy moving to Fairbanks and living there. We feel lucky to have found people like Jesse and Randi to help us with this change in our family's life.
Our Team Members Ethan and Randi Wells just closed on their new home!
We had a simultaneous closing on a house in Alaska and Montana. It was stressful! The Madden team performed flawlessly! Joel sold our house within 18 days of going on the market! Thank you very much, well done!
The team is very knowledgeable and helped us with finding a new home that was perfect for us. They helped us to sell our old house quickly, finding a buyer within two weeks on the market! We are very pleased with the outcome.
I would recommend Madden Real Estate to sell your home due to their quick response to your needs and all the effort put into selling your home such as the stagers, the photographer, and the virtual tour they provide in advertising your home so it sells quickly.
Madden Real Estate is the most efficient Real Estate team in the town.
We have already recommended your team to several people!
We had a great experience selling our house with the Madden Team. They were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and efficient. They guided us through the complicated process with ease. We always felt like they had the best interests at heart. It was a very pleasant experience!
If you want to sell fast, go with Madden Real Estate!
Wes Madden and his team knew the local market trends, they were able to price our home competitively, and they sold our house quickly. The process was very smooth. We would love to use them in the future and we will recommend the Madden team to our family and friends.
The Madden team helped us to sell our house in a very professional way. The stager, photographer, virtual tour, and all the planning by the listing agent were all top quality. We used a couple of the preferred providers for service work on the house, and they were very prompt in responding, as well as they provided us a top quality services.
I was forced to sell my house in order to be closer to my kids. The house was half way finished and the market was not particularly hot. Joel worked with me to find how much I needed to get for the house and then found the perfect buyers. I got a great price for my house and the buyers get to finish my house and make money on their investment!
I will recommend the Madden team to a buyer or a seller. When I was getting ready to sell my house, I knew Wes Madden was the realtor I was going to choose. I must say it was the right choice! In the market where houses are on sale for years, Wes sold my house in less than three months! Great job! Way to go, Wes Madden!
The whole experience of buying a home is sometimes like watching ice melt at 35*, but Miyun and Jenn did their best at making it as pleasant and fun as they could. They are very nice people to work with.
The Madden Team was energetic from the onset. We had tried selling the property 2 times before and had given up. They were realistic in their recommendations and always carried through with all the details that came up as we proceeded in completing the sale. They were a pleasure to work with.
I was out of state waiting for my house to sell before making a commitment to buy in Fairbanks. Christina did not give up of my like other Realtor did. Two years later I own the prefect home in Fairbanks.
The Madden team worked very hard to get our property sold. Communication was excellent and they responded to all our questions. Selling property long distance (we are in CA) can be difficult but the Madden team smoothed a lot of road blocks for us! I would recommend them to anyone wanting to sell property in Alaska!!!
I felt that Madden Real Estate was very positive in the ability to sell our home. They did an excellent job, and were able to find a buyer within 2 weeks.
We want to express our compliments on the way you guys conducted all the processes. Rocky, you have a rare ability to find a simple solution to any problem and it is delightful to see the enthusiasm when you are working on new ideas. We sincerely appreciate your outstanding work. Thank you again for such a great job.
I liked the phone calls and e-mails giving dates when the house was shown, as well as comments from prospective buyers – both good and bad. The weekly charts were informative and encouraging. The photos of our house, both inside and outside, were great.
My husband and I would recommend the Madden team to everyone selling or buying a home because of the wonderful service and professionalism!
The Madden Team was energetic and can do from the onset. We had tried selling the property two times before and had given up. They were realistic in their recommendations and always carried through with all the details that came up as we proceeded in completing the sale. They were a pleasure to work with.
The Madden team helped my dream house become a reality.
The Madden team got my family and I into our first home. It was a great experience and we couldn't have asked for better service! Jewel is amazing and has become a friend over these last few months, I will certainly be recommending her and the Madden team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
We had a wonderful experience working with Wes and the Madden Team. The level of Professionalism was exceptional. Marketing was outstanding. The Madden Team worked hard to make you feel special and make your dreams come true.
Don't waste your time shopping around, go to the Madden Team and get it done! They were first class to work with.
The whole experience of buying a home with the Madden Team was amazing. As a first time home buyer I was nervous and full of questions, but from the moment I walked into the doors at Wes Madden Realty, my uneasiness melted away. Within seconds of walking in the door, Wes himself greeted me, and talked me through the overall concept of buying a home with the same care and concern as if I was a member of his own family. Christina and Jenn were so friendly, professional and dedicated to helping me buy my first home, it was like having two loyal sisters. With Christina and Jenn working the process I knew I had nothing to worry about. The most amazing part of working with Christina and Jenn and the whole Madden Team was that it seemed like they had all the answers I needed before I ever asked the questions. I was, to say the very least, Extremely Pleased with buying a home with Christina, Jenn and the whole Madden Team!!!!
Madden Real Estate works well together as a team and also works well with the outside support team to make it all happen. If I need a realtor in the future, I will use Madden. If anyone asks for a referral, I would recommend Madden!
Wes Madden is easily the best realtor in Fairbanks. He isn't just a listing agent. His team actively markets your home and Wes looks out for his clients’ best interests.
If you would like someone to listen attentively and find exactly what you are looking for and need, Megan and Randi are your girls!! Megan will find your perfect house!! She doesn't give up on you and your needs
Out of the three homes we've bought, Megan was the best Buyer's agent we've had. She was available for us at every turn. She helped us through every step with care and professionalism. I've recommended her and the Maden Real Estate team to several people looking for a home in the area. If you want a Buyer's Agent that will give you what you expect and more, Megan is the one to go to.
The Madden team was very professional and efficient in marketing my home. I highly recommend them!
We received an agreeable offer for our home in North Pole after just ten days on the market. The Madden Team marketed our modest little home so well that we almost didn't want to leave it. Once we were under contract, we began to search for our next home in Fairbanks with Jewel. Jewel is very knowledgeable when it comes to the Fairbanks Real Estate market. She is straightforward, professional, and well-versed on the challenges of owning a home in this rugged climate. She connected us with a home that fits the needs of our growing family and our budget, and she helped us in negotiating some potentially sticky situations with the seller. We would recommend the Madden Team to our friends and family a hundred times over!
Clients can expect the best customer service throughout the entire process: house hunting, negotiating, and closing. There truly is a team process at Madden, and the team is committed to serving the interests of the client - not their own agenda.
Wes and his team are very loyal and understanding of the people they work with, and it is obvious they strive for perfection under all circumstances.
We just wanted to put into writing just how grateful we are for all of your help through this past year. Your kindness and professionalism will always be spoken of with friends and family every time we recount our journey to Alaska.
Sam and Annette Atwell
My wife and I recently purchased our first home in Anchorage with the help and guidance of one of your agents, Mrs. Kristen Wolletz. We had heard horror stories from friends with different agents but Kristen was amazing! She took the time to learn what we were looking for and made sure it was just those types of properties we looked at. At no point did it feel like we were wasting our time seeing something either out of our price range or taste.
She walked us through the building process before we eventually became fed up with the selling agent and backed out of the deal. There was no lost time before looking at more houses and deciding on the one we purchased. She understood the importance of a quick close and helped us secure the best deal possible.
I cannot say enough good things about Kristen. By having her on your team, you have an extreme advantage over any other real estate firm in Alaska! She is truly the best out there and will be highly recommended to anyone I meet looking for an agent.
The Madden Team was great! They were knowledgeable & highly responsive to our needs. Thank you!
With great enthusiasm and praise, I thoroughly endorse Christina Barron as "the best agent" I have ever worked with. She was/is kind, thoughtful, a great listener, a terrific presenter, very helpful, and available, as well as informative about the process. She always made me feel welcome and at ease! I really appreciate all that she and Jenn did for me! ~Carol Hughes
We were purchasing our first home and felt like it was super easy. Not only did we not live in the area but we lived in Missouri and never have been to North Pole before. The Madden Team did a great job by helping us with useful information on just about everything we would need to know. They really made us feel as we were the only customers they were dealing with, even though we know there are several others they were working with at the time. ~Amy & Sean
Working with Jewel is a wonderful experience. She was able to articulate very quickly our new home requirements. Her motivation in providing several showings each week and constantly staying on top of our priorities and her communication with Joel netted us the perfect house for our needs. Jewel is a FIRST CLASS PROFESSIONAL and provides EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!! ~Lou M
A real estate transaction is an emotional event. By having a knowledgeable buyers’ agent, I felt confident that the "business" of the transaction was upheld. Top notch ~TRC
These guys know their stuff! They made buying my first house virtually stress free!
Very responsive, organized and had the resources to get things done. Stephanie was the most helpful with her advice, Ryan spent alot of time and produced great photos of our home. The office support staff was also very helpful!
The Folks we worked with at Madden worked hard to coordinate all the details required to make out house sale a success. All contacts were professional, yet friendly and efficient.
~Mike and Linda
We were skeptical at first. However, the business culture of the Madden Team SURPASSED our expections. From start to finish the customer service, communication, and dedication to the customer (Buyer and Seller) was Superior.
The Madden Real Estate Team assigned to our home sale make it possible to sell and achieve closing for our home at, or above, our asking price and in record time.
The Madden Team moved me and my family into our dream home in the most timely manner. Probably made us the happiest people around!
I'm a do-it-yourself kind of guy... After moving to Alaska i bought a piece of property and carved out our little piece of the workld with a chainsaw and a dozer. We then stacked our own logs and built a beautiful log house that became the Alaskan home we loved and created many rich memories raising our kids in. That being said, I was hesitant at the idea of using a realtor at all ("I built it myself and I'll sell it myself"). Not being afaid of the hard work that goes with selling you own home, I poured over the FSBO vs. Realtor debate and then finally called a good friend from back in the military days who had become a successfil realtor himself. After catching up for a while, he shared some good insights and pointed me to his own personal, trusted friend in the local area - Wes Madden. I was immediately impressed with the service, availability, promptness, resources and professional 'can-do' attitude of not just Wes, but his whole team. It's been just over six months ago since we signed and sold, and as i look back, I am so thankful that we asked Wes if he'd come alongside and help sell our home. My idea of selling our house changed form a begrudging attitude toward realtor commissions (moment of honesty there...) to "WOW"! as he lined us up with roughly 18 showings in 13 days and worked out multiple competing ofers ABOVE our asking price. Are you kidding?! Wes... Thanks man. Thanks...
I didn't think selling my house could actually be fun! Joel was great. Knowledeable, a pleasure to work with, fun.
This was my first home purchase. The only research i did was in regards to framing, insulation, and energy efficiency. I really had no idea of the details, vocubulary or process in purchasing a home. Christina made me feel at ease and she took the time to explain everything. I have every intention of recommending the Madden Team to anyone looking for a home and/or property. Christina is a great buying specialist!!
They were friendly, helpful, attentive, and best of all; they helped us get into the home of our dreams. The Madden Team turned the stressful event of buying a home into a true pleasure. We could not have been better served by Christina Barron and the whole team. They are truly gems in the real estate market!
We sold our home through Madden, and Purchased a home through Madden at the same time. Their knowledge, skill and overall ability to sevice the customers in every step of the process was top of the line.
Madden Real Estate was a pleasure to work with. Their staff was professional, helpful, and knowledgable. Time and time again, the went the extra mile to help in our tough situation. Their friendly staff makes you know that they are thinking about you and your family.
I definitely will recommend the Madden Reality Co. to new residents in the Fairbanks/North Pole area. Madden employees really know the local area and gave me great advice. Their help and support through closing was truly outstanding.
The Madden Team is professional, personable, and prompy. They helped us purchase a wonderful home for our growing family. We feel blessed to have been able to work with Jewel and the rest of the Madden Team. Thank you
Randi was extraordinary in her ability to answer my questions, but most importantly her ability to find solutions to repair problems. I knew when the time came to sell my home, I would use Madden Reality. I had always heard great things about their ability to get the job done and I was not disappointed. I would use Madden again if given the opportunity...
I called Wes Madden when I decided to start looking. Cassie was the first person I spoke with and was there every step of the way. I am pleased with her work ethic.
I liked that Jewel went above and beyond finding the first home for my family. She took what we wanted and pin pointed the very properties that she thought we would like. She also showed us a property that wasn't on the markey yet that we ended up buying. Everything went smoothly and would definetly recommend her to all my friends and family looking to buy!
We were very, very, happy with the service we received from Jewel and Randi. Thanks to their knowledge and responsiveness, we now own the Alaskan home of our dreams.
In short; Professional, wonderful communication, job well done in the North Pole Market. We liked Joel's honest and straight forward approach. From day 1 we liked getting feedback and virtual tour reports. This help us to feel "in the loop". Most of all Joel's willingness to fight on our behalf...perhaps "fight" is too strong of a word. He stood up for us to the appraiser-something we feel is incrediably rare.
We have many friends who have sold thier home and didn't use Madden Real Estate, they didn't want to pay the "fee". Thier result? They didn't sell, or they sold lower than they wanted. They didn't have any representation when working with the appraisers, the buyers, the buyers agent, ect. (many never heard from their realtor once they stuck up the sign). If you want the job done right, use Joel Johnson with Madden Real Estate.
Thank you for all of the extra's we don't even know about. Thank you for selling our Home!
They helped to make the listing attractive- their Professional Photographer Ryan was great!
The entire company are professionals to the end will do everything they can to meet your need and ensure you get the best deal possible.
Madden produces! Mike Maynard sold our home in less than two months and this during the slow time of the year. We are totally impressed
Very knowledgeable and caring, puts tons of consideration into helping families out to find what is the best home.
I couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable group of people to help me find the best Alaskan home that fit my family thanks again
No punches. Straight forward.
We relied on Joel (Madden) to take care of essentially everything regarding our sale as we are in Vermont and we felt confident that he would take care of us and he did.
The Madden Team can professionally and efficiently aid both sellers and buyers in their home sale or purchasing task. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to you!
Wes and his team gets the job done! Thanks for all you did for us.
We would definitely recommend the Madden Team. We appreciated the advice and problem solving skills of our realtor, Mike, as was as Randi’s hard work to help us negotiate the complicated contracts and interactions with the lender.
Professional, positive and thoughtful. My experience working through the home buying process with Megan exceeded my expectations. Her patience, attention to detail and all around good communication kept me on target to finding a great home. The Madden Team is as they advertise, working seamlessly to ensure a quality experience for all clients.
Wes Madden keeps the Real in Real Estate. Thank you!
During my recent land purchase, Greg was professional, conscientious, and supportive. Therefore, I would highly recommend him as a real estate agent. If another real estate need should arise, I won’t hesitate to call on Greg again.
We tried another company because of a prior relationship. It was a mistake, selling a house is a business decision, not one to be influenced by personal/casual relationships. We made a change after our contract was up, and we sold our house using the Madden marketing methods faster than the industry average at that time. Booya Dawg! Show me the money!
Working with Casandra is what made everything easy!
Yes!! We were in the market for a new home and found ourselves in the Madden office due to a listing we found online that sparked our interest. We ended up working with Jewel to see what else was out there that we may be interested in and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Jewel was very thorough in asking what our particular needs and likes were in a home and quickly presented us with a list of our available options. She is very personable and took a sincere interest in finding the right home for us rather than just trying to sell us something quickly. Once we decided on a place, Jewel and Jessica were both excellent in keeping us informed throughout the purchasing process. I can't say enough about how great it was working with the Madden team and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy!
There is no I in Team at Madden Real Estate. Great crew that works together in the best interest of their clients.
We worked with Christina at Madden and had an amazing experience buying our house. My husband was pretty nervous about it all but after it was all said and done he was so surprised at how easy Madden made it for us and so was I!! Took us about 6 weeks start to finish! Christina knew the history and ins and outs of the different properties we looked at which helped tremendously. And she spent so much time with us. Our first day looking at properties we knocked out about 5 places in 1 day!! It was great. After we had an accepted offer but before we closed she even took time out of her day to let us go back and see the property to show my parents while they were visiting in town. Little things like that really make a difference. We've had an amazing experience buying our first home. We couldn’t have been happier :) Thanks so much Madden and Christina!
Brandon Phillips of Madden Real Estate sold my home in 4 weeks. I have bought and sold two previous homes, and this experience was so simple and stress free. Paul from the Madden team, came to my home to install a lockbox. The keys I had cut did not work. He went and had keys made and made a special trip back on his way home to get the job done. This is just one example of how the team went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Brandon Phillips of Madden Real Estate to anyone buying or selling a home.
Billy was fantastic and was/is extremely helpful in many areas. I would recommend him to everyone!
The Wes Madden team made our home buying process enjoyable and stress free. We loved the personalized attention we received from all staff. I was impressed by the efficiency in responding to our requests. Jewel was able to identify our preferences quickly and found us a home we love! Randi was excellent at tracking down answers to questions that arose during the escrow process. I would absolutely recommend Wes Madden to anyone in the market for a new home. Thanks for all of your hard work!
The Madden team did a wonderful job, they really helped throughout the whole house buying process and made things really easy and made the whole experience exciting. I would highly recommend them! I liked that we were kept in the loop on what was going on with the closing process. I also liked that questions were answered very quickly.
Kept me informed; quick to respond
After interviewing several firms, Madden set themselves apart with a team approach to selling our home. Everyone involved had a definitive interest in selling our house. Other firms seemed to have a ‘hope for the best’ approach. Mike and the team came in with a ‘we will sell your home’ approach that really stood out. The communication among the team was excellent and we felt comfortable every step of the way. Wish every experience could be this seamless
For the best first time Real Estate purchasing use Wes Madden. Don’t try them, USE them they're here to work for you!!!The expertise and the ability of handling my family’s needs is where Casandra went far and above my expectations. Thanks to Casandra for helping us in our transition. Our experience was excellent - your team was top notch - they recommended the correct mortgage company that suited our needs and even met a few of our wants.
Joyce was very personable and professional.
Casandra was always looking out for what was best for us. Always quick to return any form of correspondence! As first time home buyers Casandra was very patient with the abundance of questions we had. We can't thank Casandra enough for working around our schedules and helping us find our dream home! Casandra and the Madden Team went above and beyond our expectations.
Friendly, flexible, knowledgeable staff. Buying a home can be very stressful but Cassandra was great and really helped make it a more enjoyable experience! Overall great experience.
Friendly staff, easy to work with and great communication! Highly recommend choosing the Madden Team! So easy to work with. Great communication. Couldn’t have had a better team. Would use them again. Our house sold super fast
It was a wonderful, stress reduced transaction. The help and availability was more than expected. The Madden Team was very professional and quick in resolving issues that arose during the buying process
We were confident that the Madden team was the best organization to help us buy our new home and sell our old one - but, we were very surprised at just how great the Madden team is. Absolutely no reluctance to go the extra mile to ensure that buying and selling our home was a pleasant experience.
Efficiency, professionalism, friendliness. The sale went smooth and fast, everybody was very helpful and pleasure to deal with. Thank you, the receptionists (Patricia and Nikki), you were always patient and upbeat! Thank you, Marcia, for your help with renting out the Madden moving van, it was a life saver for us! Thank you, Joel, for helping us when our agent (Brandon) was on vacation. And many thanks to Brandon and Jessica for all the hard and superior work making this sale go through!! We are very pleased with the whole process and would definitely recommend your team to people we know.
What we like most about working with the Madden team is they was very helpful from day one on helping me find my home. Jewel went the extra mile to helping us close on our house in a very quick time. Bethanie and Jewel had great knowledge on answering all our questions. The Madden team is a great team to work with. The best in Alaska we think.
My experience with the Madden Team was one characterized by a professional enthusiasm and willingness to work with me to make my home buying dreams a reality. They mitigated the stressful side of the business and allowed my family and me focus on finding the home perfect for us.
This was the second time buying a house and the process with the Madden team was fantastic. Our Realtor was always available if we had questions or concerns and went above and beyond what we were hoping for. I would recommend Madden to anyone looking to buy a house

Jewel and Jenn took care of everything! Jewel patiently understood our situation and went above and beyond to meet our needs.
Jewel and Jenn were great to work with. Always finding ways to make everything as smooth as possible.
They had no problems telling if the property was bad or not. They were very straight forward and honest.
We really enjoyed working with Billy at Madden Real Estate. We felt like he really listened to what we wanted and was knowledgeable. We were first time home buyers and new to Alaska, so his expertise was really appreciated. We had a great experience and really enjoyed working with him.
Greg is amazing.......I will come back to him in the future......he is very clever and aware of the tiniest details involved.......I am very pleased with the complete process.....From start to finish the Madden Team is all you need.....sleep easy, all is being taken care of.......Thank You
Jewel was awesome. Strong communicator throughout the entire process. We were first-time buyers, and very nervous about the entire process, but Jewel did a tremendous job making sure we fully understood every step in the process. Jenn was awesome as well. Jenn would find an answer as quickly as possible after we entered into contract with the house. Jewel and Jenn made our experience with Wes Madden extremely pleasant.
Is was very easy from start to finish. No major hiccups along the way so we felt this was great service.
Christina is great to work with. Very professional and there for me for all the steps in the process.
Billy never gave up on us and helped us find our dream get-a-way. He was always extremely helpful and never made us feel like we were wasting his time. Excellent people skills!
Jessica Black was wonderful from day one!! We purchased a home in kasilof. She went above and beyond to make our dream come true. We currently live in Illinois and plan to move next year in May. Jessica was very informative and very professional every step of the way! We would recommend her to anyone we know who may be planning a move to Alaska. Extremely happy with our experience.
I had many many positive experiences while working with Jimmy Dixon and the Madden Team. Jimmy is extremely knowledgeable about so many aspects of real estate. His background as an HVAC technician and electrician shined when looking at houses. He knew enough about the codes to know when something would likely have to be replaced or upgraded. He understood enough about construction methods and how to determine whether the structure itself was sound or had problems. He was able to catch problems with the house I never would have seen. Conversely, he was also great at pointing out positive aspects of houses, and he understood it well enough to explain to me WHY they were positive or negative features. As an engineer, I ask millions of questions and he was very good at answering them. If he didn't know the answer, he was humble enough to say he didn't know (a rare but extremely important trait in a salesperson). He always did research to find the answer though.
Jimmy also knew the many of the "good" people in the housing industry. He was able to secure a home inspector that was more thorough than I could have ever imagined. If I had a question about who could do this or that, he knew the guy who would be the best at that particular task.
The best thing about Jimmy though was that he was more interested in getting me the best quality house, the one that was right for me, than in making the sale. This fact was very clear to me through his actions. It wasn't just something he said. Most realtors would tell you that is their goal but then try to dismiss or gloss over potential problems with the house and try to push you into buying it. Jimmy was very honest and forthcoming about whether a house was good enough to buy, and he was not afraid to tell me to walk away from a house that I might otherwise have been interested in. He was always very good about telling me what problems might arise and how much it will cost me to fix them, should I buy the house. I bought my house knowing very well what potential problems were going to come out of it.
In the end it was an incredibly positive experience. He went out of his way to make time for me. With him you can't say "he patiently showed me house after house", because that implies that inwardly he was not excited about seeing the houses but was good at not outwardly expressing it. Instead, I would like to say "he happily showed me house after house". I truly believe he enjoyed seeing the houses more than I did.
For any potential clients of Jimmy's, please believe me when I say that you will start as clients, and will end up as life-long friends. And you could not find a better friend than Jimmy, and I doubt you could find a better realtor.I also appreciated that Guilde Mortgage's Jenae went out of her way to find me the best mortgage rate, even though it meant my business went to another bank. She was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and did what was best for me, not what was best for her company.
Travis heard my concerns and worked on everything I asked him to. He literally took "care" of me and my house search. I recognize and appreciate all his efforts and always felt I was his most important client.
Can do attitude and no house that can not be sold in a timely manner.
Billy was willing to work outside of the normal 9-5 that most people will only work. We were able to sign documents and talk with Billy as late as 9:30 pm
Appreciated all of the assistance once we had a signed offer - Jenn, Randi. Joel's understanding of the marketing and sales data was impressive
Working with Greg was easy it was like working with a family member. He understood our wants and needs.
The Madden team was very helpful in helping me throughout the home buying process.Prompt. Polite. Helpful. Advocated in my best interest.
The Madden team sold a piece of recreation property for us and a year later marketed and sold our home. We experienced a caring and efficient team on both occasion.
Mike Maynard moved very quickly with our house, we were in the middle of a decision to either stay in our current positions locally or take a generous job offer elsewhere. We had an offer on our house BEFORE it was even listed, two days after we had gone in to his office to discuss putting it on the market. This was a huge relief for us and made it much easier for us to make a decision. Both he and the buyers agent even decreased their commission fee to make sure the deal went through.
Jason is great, he is knowledgeable and professional. Great market strategist, and down to earth. This was the best experience my wife and I had with a realtor. The team worked great with us to make this sale work.
They made me feel as if I was there top priority
Christina made us feel like we were the only couple she was working with at the time. She did so much research for us, was always happy to answer our questions, and really made us feel comfortable on our first home buying journey. You could tell she genuinely cared about making us happy
Working with Randi Wells was wonderful. Randi went out of her way to insure that the process (after offer and acceptance) went smoothly. She made herself available to answer our questions, address our concerns, and make sure everything that needed to be completed was done in a timely manner.
Jewel knew everything that I needed to get into my house. I was so happy to have her as my realtor.
The Madden team was so helpful! This was my first home purchase and I feel I was in the best hands. They always went out of their way to get me up to date information and to make sure I understood each process of the purchase. They even recommended a restaurant for me in Anchorage when they knew I was taking a trip for a weekend away - and they checked up to see if I was able to check it out and how I liked it. They really do care about their clients for more than just a purchase.
If all the Madden agents are as attentive and as helpful as Greg and Nikki were to me, anyone buying a house would be assured of first rate service!
Hello Brandon. I would like to this opportunity to thank you and "The Madden Team" for everything you have done to ensure that my home sold in a timely and efficient manner.
Brandon, from the very moment that my home went on the market to the time of closing and recording you and your coworkers were with me every step of the way. I am glad to have had your counsel on this event. Your guidance has been greatly appreciated from your recommendation to have my home professionally staged and photographed to accepting the best offer for purchase from a serious buyer.
It is truly a team effort to sell a home successfully. Jackie did a great job in listing and putting the photos and virtual tour together. She always responded to my rapidly changing schedule for showings. The scheduling service was prompt and precise in contacting me for appointments.
When there was an offer for purchase I dealt numerous times with Randi on issues that were pertinent to the closing of the transaction. She couldn't have been more patient and did a great job in explaining what needed to be done.
Brandon, I truly appreciate your guidance on the selling process. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you walked me through each and every step from the beginning to the very end. From the inspections, the plot plan and elevation survey, the title search, the appraisal process, the final inspections to the closing. Although I was not in town for the closing you were kind enough to set me up with the Madden office in Eagle River to have a conference call on the actual day of the closing. Laura was pleasant and efficient with this process as were you. You made a difficult appointment virtually stress free and easy.
Brandon, once again it has been a pleasure to work with you on this project. You are a serious professional who truly enjoys the real estate business. You also have the best interests of your clients at the forefront.
Wes, you are the fortunate owner of a company who's employees work as a team to see a sale and purchase through from start to finish. To those that I have failed to mention, you have my deepest thanks.
To those persons who may be thinking of selling or purchasing a home I would seriously recommend Madden Realty. I could not have sold my home without them!!
