Josiah has had a plan for some time. He has steadily worked toward that plan, with a detour or two along the way. This week he bought his first investment property.

It's a duplex in Eagle River. He's busy doing a bit of work to rent out the bottom.

Josiah's time as a property manager in Anchorage will serve him well as he begins to manage his own property.
In the past year he has taken a property with a dismal leasing record, fixed apartments, and got it at, or near capacity, for months on end. In the process he learned the real estate business, got a firm grasp on Alaska rental law, learned how to evict those who needed to be, and how to graciously assist those who needed a bit of advice. He cleaned up the property and long-term residents were thrilled with him. This property had around 100 units.
This week he was offered a promotion....he will now be managing two complexes with around 300 units.
We're proud of your hard work and discipline. Most of all we are proud of your heart - which continues to mentor those around you. You leave each place you go a bit better than it was when you arrived.
It's good to see plans/dreams come together.
