My Resume

Sharli Maree (Hayter) Arntzen
Committed to excellence in customer service



I moved to Ketchikan, Alaska in 1988 from Lake Chelan, Washington (where I continue to visit family every summer.) If you are a “local” you may have met me over the years. Perhaps I babysat or coached your child, bagged your groceries (at A&P), made your coffee when I worked at B&D or maybe another yummy beverage when I worked at KJ’s Raven’s Roost, or perhaps we met playing around town (go First City Players!) or exploring hiking trails. After graduating high school in 2001, I moved to Cheney, WA to begin (& finish in 2005,) my secondary education at Eastern Washington University. There I received a Bachelor’s of English with an emphasis in Technical Communications.

After two years in college, I knew I wanted to make Alaska my forever home. I summered in Ketchikan, working a few jobs, but primarily as a laborer for KPU. Upon graduation at EWU, I spent time as a substitute teacher while seeking career opportunities. I had the privilege of directing the local Big Brothers Big Sisters office, which led me to an opportunity with Critical Care, INC, a statewide non-profit that afforded me even greater responsibility and chances to serve. From there I tapped into the teaching skills I learned by opening my own group fitness studio. In 2009, my daughter was born, so I sold Liberty Fitness (now called T.N.A. Fitness,) and helped with my husband’s business, Tongass Indoor Storage.

I earned my real estate license in June of 2011. I spent 4 years with the Re/Max of Ketchikan team. After passing the test in March 2015, with my Broker’s license in-hand, I set out the following June as a one-person independent office. To meet the needs of my clients, I have since expanded with an office manager, a transaction manager, and two licensed assistants. If you’re looking to buy a piece of Alaska with a knowledgeable, local, and reliable REALTOR®, contact my office today: 907-225-7427. Whether you are relocating, transitioning, buying or selling, I am Ketchikan’s Real Estate Resource.
