Bought a Multi Family home in 2010 in Chugiak, Chugiak, AK.
William was my Real Estate agent for my very first home! He with the help of his amazing assistant asked the right questions and really got a feel for what I liked and was looking for. After learning my preferences and style, they used their expertise and led me to my current home! It was exactly what I was looking for and it was perfect for me! As a first time home owner I was really nervous about the entire process but they were really easy to contact and always willing to be of assistance. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with! I would definitely recommend William and his assistant to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable real estate agent.

Showed home in 2012.
I have been in the market for a foreclosure/HUD property for over 8 months. After several reviews I contacted mr. de Schweinitz and his wonderful assistant and was immediately impressed by their thorough knowledge of the sometimes complex process of the foreclosure market in anchorage. Thanks again for your assistance and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for real estate in Alaska.

I have been looking to purchase foreclosure properties for quite sometime but could not find a real estate agent skilled in the process. I needed to have my questions answered to feel comfortable enough to invest my hard earned money. William and his staff were a true God send. I had looked on Zillow to find a foreclosure expert, but he was the first one that actually fit that bill. From the first conversation I knew he was well skilled and knowledgeable in the foreclosure market and knew the ins and outs, advantages and pitfalls of investments of this nature. I will use William in ALL my future real estate transactions and will recommend him with full confidence to other people.

I would highly recommend William and his assistant to anyone. My wife and I were going to move to Anchorage for our retirement. I found William as a Buyer's agent on Zillow and from the very start he and his assistant were more than willing to help me with anything. William offered on numerous occasions to go and look at a property for us as we were still in the lower 48 and couldn't go ourselves. His assistant listened to our real estate needs and desires and sent us listing the moment something went on the market that fit our criteria. I found them to be very knowledgeable about the Anchorage Real Estate climate and the "home buying" process. I felt we had really found the perfect home when because of health reasons we decided to stay in the lower 48. Even though we were unable to complete the transaction, William helped us every step of the way guiding us and helping in every way he could. I am so thankful for his help and patience through the whole process and wish every Real Estate venture in my life had been met with such knowledge, expertise, and honesty as mine with William and his assistant. Thank you William!

Sold a Other home in 2009 in Mountain View, Anchorage, AK.
William understood the Anchorage market and was able to give accurate advice about pricing and marketing the 4plex. He found a buyer very quickly that was willing to accept the exact terms i was offering. He was always quick to respond to my calls and requests as well as arranging with the tenants for the buyers and their inspectors to do their various inspections. The closing went without a hitch. It closed on time.

Good job well done. quick painless sale. i would definitely recommend him.

William is truly a wonderful person and a great real estate agent. I had a great experience working with him as he was extremely knowledgeable of the local market, considered my needs, explained and managed the process and paperwork with ease, and was sincere. I would look forward to have him as my agent for future real estate endeavors.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Taku-Campbell, Anchorage, AK.
William DeSchweinitz was no less than a God-send for us in buying a home. He knew what steps we needed to take to start the whole process, and pointed us to just the right people who know their business in financing. We received new listings that fit our own "home profile" several times a week via William's automated email service. This saved us the time it takes to peruse all the different listings, eliminating those that did not fit us. William returned phone calls in a timely manner. He was always friendly and helpful and willing to make time to show a house quickly upon our request. With William's help we soon found just the right home for us. It ended up being a "short sale", a much more complicated process than normal. He kept us well-informed and stuck with it to completion. We are now very satisfied homeowners who greatly appreciate William's hard work and expertise in helping us find and purchase our new home. We would recommend William to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Abbott Loop, Anchorage, AK.
It was a pleasure to do business with this agent. His friendly service and prompt timing and phone calls, as well as emails where a great help in the daunting task of wading through the 100's of properties we reviewed before we purchased through him our new home.
