Yes, Fortunate Foundations offers a 1-2-10 home warranty. One-year is a builder surety and backs the builder’s obligation to the workmanship and materials. The two-year warranty is a builder surety and backs the builder’s warranty on defects in the wiring, piping, and ductwork in the electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating and mechanical systems. The 10-year structural warranty begins on the day of closing, lasts for 10 years, and covers the load-bearing components of the home. Other items, like the solar panels, come with their own warranty that is 25 years.

LeAnn grew up on a remote island in southeast Alaska where homesteading and subsisting off of the land is the custom. She worked closely with her father in both the commercial fishing industry spending a lot of time at sea, and with his real estate investments on Prince of Wales Island. At a young age she learned the importance of hard work, how to use tools, the basics of residential construction, and how to operate heavy machinery.

After graduating from the University of Alaska Southeast with a Bachelor’s in Biology and a minor in Anthropology, she obtained her 100 ton Captains License. She went on to manage and operate a remote high-tech salmon hatchery and then later took a job on a research vessel with the State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game participating in studies and helping manage fisheries on waters of the Gulf of Alaska, the Bering Strait, and Bristol Bay spending most the year at sea. Despite her love for the ocean and nature, LeAnn felt the entrepreneurial urge and duty to start her own business in real estate development at the young age of 28.

LeAnn is passionate about her mission to make the world a better place through green building practices to create energy efficient eco conscious homes.

“It is my duty to be successful and help make the world a better place. If I succeed I can help more people, help the environment, and create lasting positive change”.
