What They Say About Us

"We worked with Sunshine to buy our new home and sell our old home. As we were doing a simultaneous closing, it was important to keep an eye on timelines and get things turned around quickly. Though our bank dropped the ball, causing us delays, Sunshine and Claire did everything they could to get things back on track. They were great to work with, paid attention to the details, and got us into our new home as quickly as possible. We would work with them again in a heartbeat, and will recommend them to friends seeking a realtor."

Kelly

"Sunshine Hard was recommend to me by a friend and she provided excellent service. I would highly recommend Sunshine without any reservations.

My experience began with Sunshine sitting down with me to discuss the home selling process. She proposed an excellent sale process, arranged for the staging and photographs, and got the listing of my home on the cover of January’s Alaska Southeast Living magazine.

Most important to me, I relocated before my home went on the market and Sunshine took care of everything. She was always available and helpful, and I always felt that she had my best interests at heart.

In the future, if I was to decide to return to Juneau, I would definitely use Sunshine’s services again."

Nancy White

"Sunshine is very knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. She has your best interests in mind when she is showing you houses to purchase. Once a property has been found she works very hard to make the deal happen. If any problems arise she stays in constant contact with you and the other agent to work through any contract or offer issues that arise. Sunshine was able to work through an issue with the title company in our case which had a favorable outcome for my wife and I. We would recommend Sunshine to anyone looking to purchase property in Juneau based on her tenacious work ethic and professional demeanor. We truly enjoyed our home buying experience. Thanks Sunshine for a job well done."

"Sunshine and her Assistant, Claire, provided outstanding service to us as Sellers during the Spring 2019 sale of our home. Sunshine helped us properly price our home, while Claire did a fantastic job of photography and videography for marketing on social media and realty websites. The response was near immediate in terms of private showings and open house. Our home sold in less than a week. Sunshine served to help navigate the time period to closing with minimum stress even with some unexpected twists and turns. We can’t speak highly enough of the professional and personalized service both provided! We recommend them to anyone."

"I recently closed on a house with Sunshine as my realtor. She had my best interests in mind throughout the entire process, was never in a hurry to close the sale, and was very helpful with all of the steps I was unfamiliar with as a first time home buyer. She was always happy to speak over the phone to explain addendums, repairs, and details of documents that needed signing. She even drove me to sign the closing documents and is checking my mail for me before I move in! I would definitely work with Latitude 58 again."

Steve Garger & Katie Flett
Buyer 2019

“Sunshine, Claire and the team at Latitude 58 did an excellent job selling my home in Juneau. As a home owner located in the lower 48, I needed someone that would manage the whole process from start to finish with only minimal participation on my end. They managed my expectations perfectly and ensured prompt, precise communications throughout the whole process. Their professionalism and responsiveness gained and kept my trust. If I ever get the opportunity to move back, I already know who I will use again.”

"Thank you so much Sunshine and staff for all your help! You guys are awesome!"

Josephine & Patrick Minsch
Buyer & Seller 2018/2019

"We recently sold our home using Sunshine and let me tell you, we had such a wonderful experience!! A year before we listed our home we had her come by to give us an estimation on our home’s value and things to do to increase its value and appeal. Once we were ready to list she provided a comprehensive recommendation for a listing price. We felt confident in her level of experience and trusted her advice. Before listing her incredible assistant, Claire, came over and did a stellar job with the pictures and marketing. In less than 48 hours of listing we had 5 solid offers and, with Sunshine’s help, were able to pick the strongest offer. The sale went off without a hitch! Any questions we had were answered quickly and we were kept informed every step of the way. I cannot recommend her services enough!! Thank you for making what can be a stressful time a very easy one, Sunshine. You’re the best!"

Laura & Travis Hotch
Seller 2019

"Although Sunshine Hard and I have worked on a couple of home sales, my first experience with Sunshine perfectly illustrates her proactive style, organization, dedication to her clients, and her strong work ethic. When my husband and I listed our home as a FSBO, Sunshine immediately called me and told me she thought her clients would be interested. After getting her clients through the door, Sunshine brought a strong offer to the table and seamlessly facilitated the sale. I WAS IMPRESSED by her professionalism, integrity and professionalism.
I have since worked with Sunshine on several other home purchases and so appreciate her responsiveness, knowledge and her ability to provide assistance when I need it. THANK YOU SUNSHINE!!!"

Amanda & Mark Ryder

“I recently listed and sold my Douglas property through Latitude 58 Real Estate Group. It was a very positive experience. We had a somewhat complicated transaction, but Sunshine and Claire made it relatively easy. It was a fair transaction, prompt communication, and they were friendly throughout the process. I highly recommend Latitude 58. Professional and knowledgeable.”

Brian Donohoe
Seller 2018

"Sunshine, Holly, and Claire and the rest of the ladies at latitude 58 were amazing to work with and made everything easy for us when we had no idea how to even start the buying/selling process. We are loving the new home and new adventure! Thank you ladies!!"

Brooke & Kevin Walker
Buyer/Seller 2018

"Sunshine and her crew made selling our Douglas house simple and stress free. There is tons of stress when moving and changing jobs, they were able to streamline the process, and let us sign/confirm/change things remotely as we took care of other obligations we had. Thanks!"

Matt & Susie Lemons
Seller 2018

"Sunshine and her staff made our world right at what was a very busy time for our family. This is exactly what we needed. Folks are so responsive to her positive personality and know she’s genuine when she’s representing my family in what is a very important financial transaction. These qualities are most important to us when looking for a realtor. I firmly believe that when it comes to selling homes, I prefer it to be done by a professional rather then trying to save a buck and do things myself. It allows me to focus on the things I prefer to, feeling ensured she’s looking out for us in the most professional manner. Our family will absolutely be using Sunshine and her professional staff in our future transactions, and highly recommend Sunshine to represent you’re very important transactions as well."

Aleya & Joe Puliafico
Seller 2018

"Coming up on our 1 year anniversary of homeownership and couldn’t be happier. Sunshine was fabulous to work with! She even tolerated my sketches, doodles and ridiculous list of “must haves” of what I (WE)wanted in our first home! HA!"

Anna & TJ Cramer
Buyer 2017

"Sunshine Hard was named as THE realtor we needed to contact when deciding to downsize from our too-large-for-2 family home with an apartment, to a single story condo. I soon understood why. Sunshine was with us every stop of the way, from checking out the condo we would eventually purchase to identifying and organizing the work we needed to do to prep our house for sale. She checked in often, always offering encouragement and helpful suggestions. Sunshine worked smart, consistently updating our task list and hers as we progressed with the move. She contacted contractors about house repairs and just made things happen. Our process was long and thorough.

I’m forever grateful to Sunshine and her staff for their support and kindness through the “heavy-lifting” of our move. We’re settled comfortably in our new condo, also with Sunshine’s help."

Snova and Dave Parish
Seller & Buyer 2018

"Mara was wonderful! From our first call setting up a meeting through closing and beyond, Mara has been fantastic. She listened to our interests and did her research to show us what she thought would meet our needs, but she was also extremely flexible and responsive to our particular situation of coming from out of town with a toddler in tow for a short amount of time. I absolutely love how personal she made the experience, going above and beyond and even taking us to a playground so our kiddo could run around for a bit amidst all the house hunting. Similarly, she was well prepared to keep even little ones entertained when we needed office time. I cannot say enough how much I appreciated her thoughtfulness and advanced preparation. In addition to helping us find and buy a house, Mara gave us a great introduction to Juneau, and set us up to be happy here. We feel very fortunate to have worked with her through this whole experience, and highly recommend her, especially for families."

"Kimbee is definitely the agent you want to contact when buying a house! She showed me numerous houses often within 24 hours of me calling her. She is very professional and knowledgeable of the houses she is showing. She always kept us informed of what was going on in the process and even got us into our house 1 week before we were supposed to be in! If we ever move again she will definitely be the agent I contact. Thanks Kimbee, we love our new house!"

Dawn & Don Ward
Buyer 2016

"Where do I even begin?

We were looking to buy a home in Juneau while we were living in California, and had to do the entire process without setting foot in a house. Kimbee is a CHAMPION.

She spent extra time doing Skype walk-throughs with us, sometimes going back to a house multiple times to show it to us. She was honest & transparent about the condition of the homes, and wasn't afraid to give her personal opinion when asked for it, which we really appreciated!

Kimbee knows Juneau and the market so well, and made buying a house blindly and from a long distance...so comfortable!
Thank God for her:) We got into town a couple days before closing, and she was our champion the whole way through, making sure we were up to date, that the other parties stayed on time, and we closed right when we were supposed to.

She's a sweetheart and a total joy to work with, and we would recommend her to EVERYONE!"

"This is the little quilted wall hanging I made as a thank you gift for Sunshine Hard, the best realtor in the world!!! She helped me buy my house three and a half years ago, and now has helped me sell it for a tidy profit. She made the whole process easy, and never quit answering the kazillion questions I asked along the way both times. Thank you Sunshine - you are awesome!!!"

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!

Tim Johnson
Buyer 2018

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.

Annabelle Reedy & Louis Munoz

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.

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.

Summer Koester & Jason Haffner

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

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

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
Buyer 2017

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

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!

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!

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!
