RE/MAX was formed in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger in Denver, Colorado. RE/MAX of Alaska, a RE/MAX region, was formed in 1981 in Anchorage, Alaska. In 1994, RE/MAX of Alyeska was formed in Girdwood, Alaska. Bryan and Sharnee Epley, along with partners Brad and Kristan Cole, acquired RE/MAX of Alyeska in 2005 with Bryan and Sharnee responsible for day-to-day operations. Bryan became the Broker and Bryan and Sharnee acquired full ownership of the Brokerage in 2007. In 2013, Bryan and Sharnee upgraded the office by relocating to 118 Lindblad Ave, Suite 200. Bryan acquired Sharnee's ownership of the Brokerage in 2016 when Sharnee pursued a position as a Loan Originator with Residential Mortgage. In 2018, Stuart and Grace Greene, past clients of RE/MAX of Alyeska, acquired ownership of RE/MAX of Alyeska and employed, by contract, Bryan Epley, to remain on as the Broker. No other Girdwood based real estate office has been in business as long as, or sold as much real estate as, RE/MAX of Alyeska and they continue to be market innovators by introducing new practices and new technologies to the market in order to help Buyers and Sellers more easily meet their objectives. RE/MAX of Alyeska remains the only RE/MAX office specializing in Girdwood, Alyeska, and Turnagain Arm real estate.
Stuart Greene, Owner and Manager
Stuart Greene brings an exciting, innovative, and strong business-based background to RE/MAX of Alyeska. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science, Stu followed his sense of duty and dream to fly by volunteering to serve as an Officer and helicopter pilot in the United States Marine Corps. While in the Corps, he learned to fly and pilot the CH-46E transport helicopter, affectionately known as the Mighty Battle Phrog. After completing nine years of service, Stu followed his other dream of experiencing Alaska. He spent his first summer camping, fishing, and completing a successful summit of Alaska’s highest peak, Denali! Like many Alaskans, Stu immediately fell in love with the State and looked for an opportunity to stay. He soon found work as a commercial pilot flying the DC-6 for Everts Air Cargo and the Metroliner for PenAir, spending many hours flying out to Dutch Harbor and back. As careers often do, Stu began to spend less time in the cockpit and more time in the office. In 2012, he accepted a position as the Air Operations Supervisor and Aviation Contract Manager for Shell Oil’s offshore exploration project where he was responsible for all offshore helicopter operations and managed over $80 mil in aviation contracts. Supporting this project required transporting support staff from Barrow out to the mobile rigs and support vessels 130nm offshore through some of the most challenging weather on earth. To accomplish this, Stu headed a team that developed the first-of-its-kind FAA certified floating Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS), to allow the aircraft to execute offshore instrument approaches and land safely at their destination. Stu’s ability to innovate, get the job done, pay attention to detail, and drive continuous improvement translates exceptionally well to the real estate industry. Stu moved with his family from Anchorage to Girdwood in 2013. He is an enthusiastic member of the community and acts as the Executive Director of Girdwood 2020, a local non-profit, and volunteers as a member of the Alyeska Ski Patrol on weekends. Stu has one, and soon to be two children attending the Girdwood K-8 school and loves skiing, mountain biking, flying, exploring Alaska, and ringing his cowbell during weekend ski races on the hill. Five things you can count on from Stu Greene are service, integrity, attention to detail, passion, and fun!

Banks Prevatt, Salesperson
Cell Phone: 305/395-0238
A native Floridian, Banks was a client of RE/MAX of Alyeska before he joined the Brokerage. Upon graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science, Banks served ten years in the United States Air Force, where, as an officer, he piloted C-130 aircraft and served in Viet Nam. Following his service to our country, Banks’ entrepreneurial spirit guided him towards several business endeavors over the next five decades. These endeavors ranged from real estate brokerage and operation, to real estate development, to general contracting, to the food and beverage industry, and to commercial fishing. Today, Banks maintains a real estate license, and business, in both Florida and Alaska; his wife, Patty, remains his assistant in Florida. The draw to Alaska for Banks goes back to the early 1950’s. As a young lad, Banks developed a love for Alaska, and Prince William Sound, while his father was stationed at the Port of Whittier from 1953 to 1955 with the United States Army. Whittier still has a special place in Banks’ heart and this is where he and his wife spend their summers. When not talking real estate and development, you might find Banks fishing somewhere quiet in Prince William Sound.
