Meet John O’Hara

Professional Resource
for Alaska Real Estate

I’ve been licensed in Real Estate since 1995 and in that time I’ve seen many changes for both Anchorage and the real estate market. It’s a wonderful career for almost 30 years and I very much enjoy helping clients with all of their real estate needs. I currently specialize in Anchorage, Eagle River, Chugiak/Peters Creek and surrounding areas. I have a tremendous amount of experience finding homes for buyers and successfully marketing single-family homes, condos and multi-family properties for sellers. I’ve won many awards throughout my real estate career such as Lifetime Achievement, Platinum Club, 100% Club and numerous Top Producer awards.

What Our Clients Say


When we decided to move to Anchorage, we were lucky enough to work with John and his team. Anchorage is a complicated market and having that personal knowledge have not only what our needs were, but what Anchorage had to offer, gave us so much reassurance in finding the right home. And even when we found the right home, John and his team, Marva, and everybody at the office, made that whole process easy. So at the end of the day, we can be confident that we had made not only the right choice, but it got the best home for us.

Pete Teller

My family worked with John O’Hara to find two homes and also put one on the market. We believe John is the best real estate agent in Anchorage – he’s really a great listener, he listens to your needs and concerns and wants to really make sure that you’re going to find the house that you’re going to love. It really took a lot of the burden off of our shoulders and made home buying a less scary, intimidating process.

John is an awesome Realtor who takes great pride in helping people. He is very responsible, responsive and ethical. He stays up to date with a very rapidly changing industry, ensuring his clients great service. I have done several transactions with John over the years and they were always successful and pleasant to all parties involved. John is very good at his profession and it shows by the amount of repeat business and referrals that he gets.

Peggy Young

I’m writing you a poem, John O’Hara,
Because you really are a super guy.
It’s not time yet to say our sayonara,
But as a realtor, you are aces high.
I greatly do appreciate your kindness
And all the extra work you did to sell
That condo. You related to the blindness
Like it was nothing extra, I could tell.
You must be young, if you’ve a two-year-old,
But you’re a fella whom I wish to thank.
You worked your ____ off, as it will be told.
(No doubt you’re able to fill in the blank!)
It may be a cliché, or just a platitude,
But, deal done, now’s the time for gratitude!
