Ross was great in all areas. Most impressive was his responsiveness. Upon leaving him a message because of my interest in one of his listings, he responded within minutes. During this first contact I gave him a list of about 15 other properties I was interested in. An hour and a half later he got back with me with information, both good and bad, on all the properties.
I will use his services in all future real estate transactions on the Kenai Peninsula and would recommend him to anyone interested in real estate in this area.

I really enjoyed working for these buyers because they were very straight forward with what they wanted. We did edit quickly those that didn't make sense to their situation I must say. Glad we found the perfect place for you both. Fish On!
Ross has been our Realtor since my wife and I first moved to the Kenai Peninsula. Ross found us our first home in North Kenai, a log home that we adored up until this last year. He then found us our incredible dream home and a short time after sold our beloved first home.
Ross is one of the few individuals I have met in Alaska that exudes professionalism, common sense and old fashion hard work. Ross is not only our Realtor, but a good family friend.
There are more than a few goofball Realtors working the Kenai area, don't miss your opportunity to work with one of the best. You'll be glad you did.
Bought a Vacant Land home in 2013 in Anchor Point, AK.
I was very happy with Ross Baxter. He was professional but was very easy to talk to and was helpful when it came to questions I had. I have spoken with other agents in the past that seemed a little condescending when I would ask questions, but Ross never made me feel stupid for asking. I also appreciate the fact that he would return my calls in a timely manner. I have nothing but good things to say. He made this experience a lot less stressful for me than it could have been.

There are no dumb questions in Real Estate. It can be very confusing at times and it is my job to make it as easy and carefree for my clients as possible. I appeciate your business and would be happy to help you or your friends anytime in the future.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Soldotna, AK.
Ross is friendly, knows the area well, is very responsive, and a great negotiator. Involved in charity in the local community, Ross helps others aside from doing his job. He greatly helped delineate the procedures for buying a new home. He showed us other houses utilizing our desires. Ross's responsiveness is due to his total technological know-how. He emails, texts, phones, faxes, or will even go see you whenever you need to get in touch with him. Because we live away from the home we were purchasing, he went to the house several times for us to go see the fireplace and look for manuals and remotes. At the very end, Ross even negotiated with the seller to fix the well pump, for which a problem showed up at the last minute. This is an honest go-getter realtor that will be on your side in any sale or buy.

Very gracious comments, thank you. I enjoyed working with you and your family. Real estate transactions can require many skill sets because of potential issues that arise. I'll be here to help should there be anything else you need. Enjoy your new home in Soldotna and welcome to the community!
We originally started looking at homes on-line and then when the time came to get serious we met with a couple different realtors and decided on Ross Baxter. Ross was so knowledgeable and patient, there were some homes we looked at repetitively. While we apologized for wanting to see so many homes he comforted us with the fact that this is a commitment we are making and he was glad to help. Ross was amazing, he showed us homes that we had missed online even, he wanted us to find the home of our dreams and we did. Thank you Ross for your due diligence!! I would absolutely recommend Ross to anyone buying or selling a home. Negotiating is a fine tuned skill of his and we are so very glad to have chosen Ross as our Realtor and you will too...

Working with Kirk & Michelle was a lot of fun, Their sense of humor added levity during one of our negotiations with a difficult seller. I'll not forget how they shared getting, not only engaged, but married once they were under contract. I wish them both the greatest life together and appreciate their friendship as well. Enjoy your new home together! Ross
I had done a lot of "Net Browsing" to find "Homes of Interest". Ross emailed a link to a number of other homes based on what I told him I was "Looking For". After reviewing his list we settled on a few to "Visit". Ross "Set Up the Viewings", met us at the local airport and took us on a tour of the homes. We then went back to his office, discussed what we had looked at and, with his guidance, "Made an Offer". After a "Bit of Negotiation" the "Offer was Accepted". Ross was "On Top Of" the "Rest of the Deal" to get it "To & Through" the Lenders Paperwork, working Very Well with the Mortgage Company. "Things Worked", No Major Snags, We're "Moved In & Happy"!!!! Yes, I Would Recommend Ross To Any Buyer!!!

Thank you for your kind words.
Everyone faces challenges in life, and this couple had their plate full to say the least. I was committed to making it as easy as possible for them to move from a remote part of our state to our area. It seemed to work out well. I hope their home continues to meet their needs. I wish "the Mrs" a full recovery.
Very nice working with Ross on this transaction very knowledgeable about everything that was going on took care of things in a timely manner would definitely recommend Ross to anyone else that is buying a house and look forward to working with him in the future on our next purchases
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Soldotna, AK.
Ross is knowledgeable, approachable and kind. Ross will call you back and look out for your best interest. Ross not only helped us find the perfect home, when it was time to go, he had our back and found us buyers. Buying and selling was a breeze. Contact Ross- you will not be sorry! Ross will take care of you in every way.

What I love about my job is exemplified within the transaction with this family. Being able to help someone make a major change as smoothly as possible is very rewarding. I enjoyed meeting them and look forward to hearing of their future success long after our working relationship is over. Good Luck to you and your family in all things.
Ross was very attentive to our needs and wants. He kept in email and phone contact with us almost daily. He facilitated a closing in record time. I am glad that we were able to work with us. Thank you!!!
