The cabin of your dreams…..








This lovely cabin on 15 acres of privately owned Patented mining claim has 400 feet of river frontage, solar power, hot and cold running water and the owner will even throw in the wood for your first sauna in paradise! A short drive from downtown Nome will bring you to this haven that is a world away from the day to day!



74 Acre Patented Mining Claim 8 miles from Nome

This is a pretty cool property, and not just because it’s got the full bundle of rights…I personally would love to buy it just to subdivide it, it’s beautiful, has a nice trail wandering across it, some creeks, and views of Sledge Island.

It’s about 8 miles on the Blodgette highway, a little ways past the Snake River. If you’re a local I bet you’ve explored the trail, picked berries, or snowmobiles there.

Give me a call or send me an email if you would like more information.

Ice Ice baby!

I finally had a chance to watch the new Bering Sea – Under the Ice show. I was pretty tickled to see that there were some local Nome folks on the show.

I hope there is more focus on the real people of Nome and less attention to the ridiculous fiascos of the Reidell’s and that horrid Meisterhiemer character!

A big wave to Ricky, Joe and Jacob!

Miner’s Campground

Nome Gold is planning to open up a campground for potential miners. Mitch Erickson of Nome Gold Alaska announced that they are proposing an industrial campsite close to dredge six on about 150 acres of mined property. They plan to open in May or June and close in October. If you would like more information as it becomes available please send an email to

Port projects planned

Keep an eye on what’s happening at the port of Nome. The city has some serious improvements planned for our harbor! A lot of people have some concerns about what’s going to happen with increasing traffic and increase in shipping but harbormaster Joy Baker has been working diligently to come up with a plan to help alleviate the expected increase in traffic.

There is some public information available about that plan; if you would like to see a draft copy of the changes feel free to e-mail me at

Be tightwad lose the house!

So I tell someone to submit their “highest and best” offer. What exactly is so confusing about that? Why does it inevitably happen that after someone is told to submit highest and best, then they don’t get the house, they come back to me and say:

“I would have gone higher, why didn’t they counter?”

Newsflash…if I say to submit your highest and best because there are multiple offers, I am going to assume you have submitted the best you are going to offer.

Because highest and best does not mean submit a lowball offer and we will negotiate with you. It means we have an offer that is satisfactory but we want to give everyone one more chance to meet or beat that offer.

If you really really want the property in question you will forget about the listing price altogether. You will offer the highest dollar amount YOU feel the property is worth. The best terms, such as a quick close. The least repairs (highest and best is not the time to demand new boilers, new roof) as ease of closing is a consideration.

If you decide to be a cheapskate and offer less than your best, don’t bother whining to me that you would have gone higher if I had only asked!!!

Because I will NOT ask!
