For Immediate Release - Anchorage, Alaska (March 25, 2017) -   Madden Real Estate, the number #1 real estate team in Alaska since 2009, has announced a merger with The Dar Walden Team, a division of Keller Williams Alaska Group and Keller Williams Realty, the world’s largest real estate franchise with over 150,000 agents and approximately 800 offices worldwide.  This union will bring together two leading real estate companies specializing in residential and commercial listings throughout the entire state of Alaska.

“We are excited about this opportunity to strengthen our resources and continue to grow our team,” says Co-owner and CEO, Wes Madden of Madden Real Estate.  “This venture will allow us to build on each organization’s unique strengths while maintaining our focus on client relationships and their success.” With over 4,500 real estate transactions, and a top 50 producing team in North America according to Real Trends Magazine and the Wall Street Journal, Madden Real Estate has also been honored with many recognitions including the Bill Biven Small Business of the Year award by the Alaska State Chamber.

Ed and Dar Walden, Co-owners of The Dar Walden Team at Keller Williams Anchorage, Eagle River and the Valley real estate agencies, are looking forward to introducing their franchise to the Fairbanks area. “By combining our strengths,” says Dar Walden, “we will continue to offer our clients the epitome of customer service.  We have worked with Wes over the years, referring business from the Anchorage area as well as partnering in many professional marketing and business relationships. We couldn’t be more excited to start this next adventure with Wes and his amazing team.”  The Dar Walden Team has been ranked in the Top Five real estate teams in Alaska consecutively since 2008. 

Covering the interior and south central Alaska real estate markets, the newly formed organization will continue to operate under Madden Real Estate with its headquarters remaining at 728 Gaffney Road in Fairbanks.
