Testimonials

Working with Sunshine was super easy. There were a lot of hoops to jump through with the bank and Sunshine was very patient throughout the whole process. She was also out of town during part of the transaction and she was very available throughout the whole thing. She is not just available 9-5. I couldn’t be more satisfied… the whole experience has been awesome!

Holly – When we decided to sell our home, we went online to do some research to see who the top selling Realtors were in Juneau… your name was at the top of the list. After speaking with you and finding out what you would do to help sell our home and the extensive marketing for maximum exposure, we knew you were the Realtor for us. We had already moved to Texas and you made it very easy for Louis and I to sell the house… you did all the work for us, made recommendations that would help improve the curb appeal, hired contractors for us and always responded “just let me know what else I can do to help.” You kept us up to date with the showings and comments and one month later, we accepted an offer on our home. Louis and I can't thank you enough for all the hard work, dedication and the time you spent in selling our home so quickly. We most definitely will suggest you to anyone we know who is selling or wanting to purchase a home. You are an expert in your field and we were lucky to have you as our Realtor.

I had a great experience! Holly kept me well-informed, she was professional, courteous, and she went above and beyond to provide customer service. I wasn't sure about using a realtor since I'd had negative experiences with other brokerages previously, but this experience with Holly turned out to be quite positive.

Tom Schriver
Seller 2017

I had been trying to sell my waterfront property for over three years---and Holly had two offers within two days of listing with her! She guided me through the entire process and gave me thoughtful and experienced advise during the negotiations. She returned my calls and answered my questions--always. I recommend her, I recommend her, I recommend her.

Carmen Phelps
Seller 2017

Holly represented us during the bidding process and until we closed on our house. Her guidance helped us make a competitive offer. She seamlessly coordinated the inspection and re-inspection of our house as well as the closing. Both Holly and Sunshine were easy to communicate with over the phone and by e-mail. We would gladly work with them again, and we give them our highest endorsement.

Holly is an excellent, knowledgeable, "get it done", real estate agent for buyers and sellers. She and her assistant, Claire, pay attention to your needs and they do everything they can to fulfill them. Rest assured, these two ladies are the best choice you can make whether you are looking to buy or sell! Trust me, we've done both of these with Holly at the helm!

The process of buying your first home can be very stressful. Having Holly Cerne and Sunshine Hard at Latitude 58 by our side really helped ease some of those first time home buyer’s fears. There was always someone there to answer our questions and to guide us throughout the home-buying process. They worked with us day and night to ensure that we found our perfect home. Thanks to them, we couldn’t be happier with the home we have now been in for two years!

Amber & Eric Brewer

I already tell anyone who is interested in buying a home that Latitude 58 is the place to go! The acts of kindness, attention to detail, and passion of the Latitude 58 crew is what sets them light years apart. I already want to buy another house just so I have an excuse to hang out with my realtor more and go house shopping. If you are in the market for a new home, I highly suggest you contact Sunshine Hard and she will find you the perfect fit!

Tesla Cox
Buyer 2017

After looking at 70 or so houses I thought that Sunshine would eventually give up on us, but she and her assistant Claire were always willing and available to show us anything that we were interested in seeing. Sunshine's knowledge and experience in Juneau real estate helped us navigate the tricky and stressful aspects of buying and selling our house. She was an amazing advocate in helping us buy a house in a competitive seller's market. When it came time to negotiate price and repairs, she was extremely helpful and a very shrewd businesswoman. Trust me you want Sunshine on your team! In addition, she was able to find us a buyer for our house instantly and the transaction was quick and seamless. Sunshine is an excellent realtor and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in looking for a new home or selling their home.

An opportunity came up for me that I did not want to miss, and selling my house was pivotal to making my retirement dreams come true with my home equity. Sunshine Hard at Latitude 58 was recommended to me by both my daughter and by my son as they had used her as their buyer's agent in the last year-and-half. They had been very pleased with her service and how hard she had worked for them. I contacted her about selling my house and found out that she acts as a seller's agent as well.

It had been almost 20 years since I had been involved in selling a house, and Sunshine patiently and knowledgeably helped me through the process. She explained everything very well and answered all questions to my satisfaction. My house was put up for sale and the next day, amazingly, I got an offer! She knew the market and she knew how to get the job done! She had no doubts that it would be a quick sale. Her expertise on knowing the right purchase price to ask for the property matched up to the appraisal, avoiding any amendments to the sales agreement later in the process.

All through the process, she demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the realty business, making sound recommendations, and she even went above and beyond duty to help me contact and arrange for the warranty replacement of not only some of my windows, but contributed to solving the same issue for a similar adjacent property. It saved us time, hassle, and money.

Her associates were also very accommodating and helpful. Latitude 58 rocks! Thanks again for helping me achieve my personal goals.

My home buying needs were unique and challenging for the Juneau real estate market. Holly and Sunshine met my needs with honesty and diligence. Their commitment to me was sincere and I couldn't be happier with my purchase of my new home. Thank you ladies for helping me benefit from your vast experience and knowledge in the Juneau real estate market.

James Wolf
Buyer 2016

Holly and her assistant helped us buy a house before we moved to Juneau. They were great about showing homes via FaceTime and having our friends accompany them on showings. When we found the right house Holly's expertise and advice were keys to our successful offer; the service and attention they offered were top notch! A friend recommended Holly and I'll do the same when others tell me they are looking to buy.

Lyle and Annie Kessler
Buyer 2016

Sunshine Hard was wonderful to work with on both of our transactions. We first purchased our condo allowing time to do renovations on the house we were selling. House sold within 2 days after listing. Sunshine and her assistant Claire guided us through the process with the utmost patience, professionalism and calmed me during stressful moments. Could not have done it without them!!!

Linda Hay

Holly Cerne was an absolutely amazing realtor to work with. She helped us get top dollar for our house and walked us through all the steps necessary to prep our house for sale. I was blown away by how dedicated and hard-working she was for us as the seller! She helped us sell our house within 48 hours of it going on the MLS!!! Love this lady!

Holly helped my family and I purchase our first home and tirelessly represented us and our interests throughout the whole process. Her ability to navigate Juneau’s real estate market is unparalleled.

Steve L.
Buyer 2013

I bought a house that was listed by Holly but needed to sell my existing home in order to proceed. I was really concerned that I could not sell my existing house in time. Sunshine took care of that. She sold my existing house in one day. Both transactions had their ups and downs, negotiations and unexpected findings. Sunshine did an outstanding job of finding workable solutions, making sure my concerns as a buyer and seller were taken care of in a timely and rational manner. I was truly impressed. I have been a real estate broker myself and understand the complexity of these transactions. Sunshine and Holly were 'on it' and it was quite refreshing and reassuring. There was no wondering about what was happening. Sunshine knew how to move the process forward without making me feel hurried or 'pushed'. As we all know moving and buying houses can be extremely stressful for both buyer and seller. I applaud both Sunshine and Holly for their professional approach. I do not want to leave Claire out of the discussion either. She handled the details flawlessly and smoothly. Great team.

Holly and Claire were wonderful to work with. Their help and expertise made a very smooth and pain free buying experience. I would happily recommend Latitude 58 for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Ryan Sauve & Stephanie DeRoo
Buyers 2016

We had a checklist of needs to accommodate our family. Sunshine and Claire made sure we spent our time wisely finding the right place. Several of the places were great on paper but when we toured the homes it was evident that they were not the right fit for us until we entered the home that would eventually be ours. Everyone knew our family had come "home" as soon as we walked into that house. Thank you Latitude 58 Real Estate Group for helping us find our forever home!!

Renee Loree & Scott Sell
Buyer 2015

Sunshine, of Latitude 58, was a great realtor to work with. She made herself available to look at houses around our schedule, working late to get our offer in first over others. We also appreciated her knowledge and follow through with the banks, inspectors, and the seller’s realtor. Thanks Sunshine; enjoying the new house!

Sunshine was a much needed, steady yet accommodating hand in guiding us through the home search for our family. She quickly understood what our housing needs were and expertly tailored our search for the right house. Sunshine guided us through the purchase process taking care of the numerous inspections and appointments behind the scenes and constantly keeping us apprised of the progress. She and her team were always a phone call or a text message away. She was a tough negotiator on the purchase price, getting us the best deal possible. She even took care of the small, yet so important, details like making sure that the house was professionally cleaned before we moved in. She did such a great job, we will not be needing her services again for many, many years. She will be my first call when it's time, however.

Glen Fairchild
Buyer 2015, Seller 2016

Choosing Sunshine to help us find the perfect house for our small family was one of the best decisions we have made all year! She answered all of our questions and made sure we understood what was going on every step in the process.

Jeremy Lavender & Noe Kamahele

My husband and I loved working with Latitude 58 Real Estate Group. They helped us sell our current house in 2014 and then purchase our new house in 2015. After our initial meeting, we knew Holly, Sunshine and their crew were the realtors for us since they seemed very professional, personable, knowledgeable, and our personalities really clicked. Through the process they were very patient, accommodating, and respectful. They were very straight forward on helping us figure out what we needed to do to sell our house and went above and beyond at helping us find our next house. We have, and will always, recommend them to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!

We weren’t sure we were ready to buy a house last year, but we never felt pressured or rushed; and although I am sure Sunshine had many more clients than us, we felt like we were her only clients when she was with us. She recommended great loan options, and house inspection and repair guys. It was the smoothest house purchasing experience we have had.

Tannis Kearns

Holly, Sunshine, and Claire at Latitude 58 provide the best real estate service in Alaska. Whether you are buying or selling, your interests are their top priority. We couldn't imagine going through the sale and purchase process without their professional guidance.

Tracy & Jeremy Woodrow
Buyer and Seller 2014

The service and personal attention we received from Holly and Claire was exceptional and unexpected from a Realtor! They are truly a high-caliber team. Their knowledge of the local market and their key contacts in the community helped us in our search for my home. After patiently going through listings and making countless offers they made sure I got the best value purchase for my new home! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Holly and Claire to help you find your dream home. We could not have asked for a better Realtor team to guide us through the process.

Lucas Baranovic
Buyer 2014

Latitude 58 was amazing to work with. We highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a house. Sunshine is knowledgeable, responsive and accessible. Her market knowledge and connections within the industry helped make things go as smoothly as possible. She found solutions to the issues that pop up during these types of transactions and was straightforward and direct with how to handle them. She went above and beyond so many times, not only during our transaction but after, too. Sunshine, Claire and the rest of the Latitude 58 team provide quality, personal and dedicated service.

Sara and Brian Dallas
Seller 2015

Holly and Claire did a fantastic job for us! We had a difficult move from Ohio and could not have done it without them. We could not be there physically to look at the house ourselves, so Holly personally did her own series of video tours for us. We could not be happier with our purchase. During our very first visit to Juneau, Holly showed us around town, hooked us up with new friends, and instantly made us feel at home in Juneau. When we finally arrived in Juneau to move into our house, Claire drove us from the airport and helped us move in on our first day. Not only are Holly and Claire excellent professionally, but it's the personal attention that they gave us that made the real difference in making Juneau immediately feel like our home. They are the best in real estate in Juneau!

Sunshine Hard is a resourceful, knowledgeable, and courteous real estate professional. She listened to my home preferences and within days found me the perfect home. She guided me through listing and selling my condo and purchasing my soon to be house. It was stressful, yet with Sunshine in my corner I was in confident, well-supported, and cared for hands, so to speak. She listened to my concerns and knew just what to say when I needed reassurance and a shoulder to lean on. I honestly don't think I could have done it without her. I not only gained a beautiful new home, I also gained a friend. I highly recommend Sunshine!

Sunshine, and staff Claire, are top notch in this business. I would recommend Latitude 58 to anyone needing or wanting a home in Juneau. Sunshine has so much knowledge and experience and made this process to buy and sell a home in Juneau in 5 weeks easy. It was shocking to my husband and I how much they did for us, how fast, and the continuous support they provided. Sunshine kept in contact with us and provided all information immediately to keep us up to date. They made every meeting, inspection, signing, and more! She has truly changed our lives in Juneau, finding the perfect home for us and our fur babies to be comfortable! Thank you, we are so grateful!

We thought that selling our Juneau home while living in Minnesota would be a challenge. However, Latitude 58 did a great job of communicating with us and had our home sold within days! Holly and her team are knowledgeable, professional and caring!

Claire, Holly and team were incredibly dedicated and amazing-- turning a rental into a listed property from another state was challenging as a first time seller and I couldn't have imagined it without the amazing skills and services of the Latitude 58 team. It was a smooth transaction and was so happy to have their expertise and assistance thru the transaction. Stellar customer service and attentiveness, thank you again!

Amber and Michael King
Seller 2015

I had the pleasure of working with Latitude 58 Realty, specifically Claire and Holly, when we sold our home in Douglas. We had owned the home for 15 years, and needless to say, it was a bittersweet moment. Claire and Holly took all of the angst out of the listing and sale transaction. They were on top of it all the way....always cheerful and ready to answer any and all of our questions! From their initial visit to talk with us, through their assessment of the home value, handling all the questions for home inspection, and negotiating the final agreements, they were supportive of us, and, while respectful of everyone involved, they remained our representatives, and worked hard to ensure that our wishes were foremost. We could not have asked for anything more! I highly recommend working with Latitude 58!!

Sunshine Hard is an amazing realtor and represented us well during both the sale and purchase of our new home. Both experiences were very positive and we knew we were in good hands. We were able to relax knowing she and Claire were hard at work for us. Sunshine was calm throughout and always available to answer our questions - she guided us through both experiences and her expertise and experience in the Juneau market was well demonstrated. We cannot say enough positive things about Sunshine! Highly recommend her!

Erin & Kyle Hardin
Seller 2017, Buyer 2018

Holly Cerne is my hero savior! She had a contract to sell my house in less than 2 weeks. She took over for another realtor that just was not giving me the service I thought I needed. I hired Holly a week before I left town in November. I left my house in her very capable hands; she made sure it was safe, secure and warm while it was in the process of being sold. She is a realtor who actually works and works for her clients. You don’t get customer service like that very often in Juneau.

Barb Adams
Seller 2018

I have already, and will continue to recommend Sunshine Hard. I was impressed with Sunshine’s knowledge about contract negotiations, connections within the real estate business, and her willingness to work 110% through the entire home buying process.
Beyond the purchase process, Sunshine and Latitude 58 has continued to keep in touch, and shows that our interactions weren’t just business, they were personal!

Hilary Rehfield-Green & Ryan Green
Buyer 2016

Latitude 58 is the best! Holly and Claire helped us sell our house that my husband built and that featured a life-time of wood-working projects. We did not think of this house as a house but our home, where our four children grew up and where we experienced a full life. It takes a special kind of person to move this kind of sale along and Latitude 58 was a perfect fit. They were professional, helped us with decisions every step of the way, all the time respecting our deep attachments to this place we had called home for over 30 years. I highly recommend them if you ever get the itch to move on.

Ann Boochever & Scott Miller

I recently worked with Sunshine Hard to purchase a condo in Douglas as part of an overall plan to downsize. Sunshine was helpful and patient through every step and provided me with valuable guidance since it had been years since I had any experience in the real estate market. The entire Latitude 58 staff have been wonderful to deal with and I look forward to continuing to work with Sunshine as we sell our old home.
