Paula Laird, Broker/Owner
Paula moved with her husband, Vic, to Kodiak in 2005 when their family was transferred by the U.S. Coast Guard. Moving to an island with a housing market far different from what they were accustomed to was daunting, even though they had frequently bought and sold homes in their prior duty stations. In 2008, Paula became an Alaska real estate licensee and learned that the Kodiak housing market, although extremely active, was not so scary. When Vic retired from the Coast Guard in 2010, it was an easy decision to stay in Kodiak. Over the last decade, Paula has developed a reputation for service that garnered her “Best Realtor of the Year” recognition by readers of the Kodiak Daily Mirror. Paula opened RE/MAX of Kodiak in 2012. With RE/MAX on her side, she enjoys serving Kodiak families with the highest level of integrity and professionalism that you would expect from a RE/MAX affiliate.

Teresa Stutes, Sales Associate
I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Alaska. I originally grew up in Cordova, in a family fishing environment. Later, I moved with my family to Kodiak, just before the historic earthquake that shook Alaska to its core. I have four wonderful, grown children who have given me loving grandchildren.
Beginning my business roots as an owner and operator of a busy retail clothing store, I know the importance of client satisfaction and the simple joy of working with returning customers. I am always flattered when I get to work with clients who enjoyed my store! As Kodiak began to grow and change, I decided that the retail store should be closed, and transitioned into real estate. My shift into real estate happened just over 10 years ago, and I have found a home working with RE/MAX of Kodiak for the last four years. As an expert in Kodiak real estate, I pride myself in offering my clients not only excellent real estate advice, but abundant local and remote knowledge. I am ready to assist you with any of your real estate needs.
Sharing my love of Kodiak with each of my clients comes easily, as the island gives me the ability to enjoy many of my interests such as music, art, walks/hikes, family, beach combing, and of course real estate! It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
