Team Al LaPeter and Sandy Kantor
Certified Residential Specialist - CRS, Graduate, Realtor Institute - GRI
Al LaPeter CRS, CRB, GRI
I began my real estate career in the early 70's, selling residential properties in Southern California. Within two years I owned a brokerage, with at one time hundreds of agents working for me. I have also been a property developer, built many custom high-end homes, and owned and managed apartment complexes and shopping centers in multiple states. When I moved to Sun Valley, Idaho in the late 80’s, I purchased another realty brokerage, and I and my agents sold many multi-million dollars homes. Some of my clients have been on the “Forbes 400” list of wealthy Americans.
I have sold, over my career, hundreds of millions of dollars of residential and commercial real estate. I have invested in many significant commercial properties and have a deep knowledge of how to analyze and structure the purchases and sales of commercial real estate. My long and varied background in so many aspects of real estate has enabled me to do a great job for all the Buyers and Sellers that I have worked with over the years.
I hold a GRI certification, meaning that I graduated from the Realtor’s Institute. I have been a CRB (Certified Residential Broker) since 1975 and a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) since 1978. I am a Charter CRS member, having been on the CRS faculty and helping to develop the original CRS courses. These are advanced designations that are held by a 4% of Realtors nationwide, and evidence high levels of both education and experience in the real estate field. In the Tucson area, I am one of only 12 Realtors that hold a CRS and CRB designation- a very small club. I've also done Real Estate sales training throughout the country for many years. I am also a member of the 1926 Circle of Excellence Platinum Level at Long Realty and in the top 1% of all Realtors in Long Realty and nationwide. In order to reach this level, an agent must earn net commissions $500,000 or more in a calendar year- which we did!!
With all of this experience, I am more than just a Realtor®, but rather a consultant for all of your real estate needs. I’m great with the numbers and analysis, but also really enjoy helping people find their “place in the sun”. I just am able to bring a lot to this from all of my past experience, and look forward to helping more people make successful real estate decisions in the future.
On the fun side, I am an avid golfer and a member of the Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley. Just let me know when you want to play a round of golf at one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Arizona!!
