Billy Blackburn - Senior Sales Associate
My pledge to all my clients is that I will always be ethical, honest and attentive to your needs. I will treat you with the utmost respect. I know from my own experiences how stressful it can be buying or selling a home during a PCS move. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer, new to Alaska or a military family making a PCS move to our community, your happiness is important to me and I will do everything I can to make that transition as stress-free as possible. I will treat you in the manner that I want to be treated.
Professional Experience: I spent over 26 years in the Army. I retired in 2007 as a CW4 Black Hawk pilot in the MEDEVAC here at Ft Wainwright.
Personal Information: I have been married to my wife Claire for over 28 years. We have two adult children and are grandparents. We moved to Alaska in 2000 when I was transferred to Fort Wainwright as a pilot for the MEDEVAC unit. By living here for 17+ years, I know the area and I can show you the home for you and your family!
