Alaskan Realtor Amy Mackey-Hornak Is Thrilled To Celebrate “The Month of The Military Child”

Growing up in the Military made her who she is

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, UNITED STATES, April 7, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ -- With an exciting and respected career as a top-producing Real Estate Agent, Amy Mackey-Hornak has fond memories of being a child of an Air Force Chief Warrant Officer 4, having served 32 years in the military.

After settling down in Anchorage, Alaska 30 years ago with her husband, together raising three amazing young men, Amy has a solid foundation that is not always common with adults who moved frequently as a child of military relocation. “I learned early on to appreciate all that I have and to have respect for others. I come from a background of values and do my best every day to live them in my personal and professional life,” says Amy.

Growing up in the military, Amy certainly appreciates the unique issues that face military children and is proud to be a part of “The Month of The Military Child.” She says, “Our parents always presented moving as a positive thing, so it was really neat for us knowing that even though we were leaving friends and a safe environment behind, we also knew that wherever we ended up we would be making new friends and having new adventures.”

Amy began her Real Estate career eight years ago with an enthusiasm to help families move, to or within, the Anchorage area. “I bounced around the U.S. as a military child, and I can honestly say, ‘I get it’! I know how stressful the transitions can be, moving from one place to another." She has vivid and delightful memories of those long road trips in the car with her family. "It was so different back then because we had to drive everywhere when we relocated. It's not like it is today where everybody just jumps on a plane. I have so many stories to tell, but one thing I remember clearly was how thrilled my dad was when we were about to go to Alaska. He spoke of the beauty, the great outdoors, nature, animals - everything! We couldn't wait to get there, and of course, I was mesmerized with everything when I got there because everything he described to us had suddenly come to life right before my very eyes! My dad was a great storyteller and he really made our trips exciting. I believe it is a tremendous gift to be a child in a military family and I love working with military families to help them find that perfect new home, schools and the faith community that fits their needs.”

As a Rotarian, she worked to bring the Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall to Anchorage in 2012 and scheduled 210 man hours with Veterans, soldiers and civilians to stand guard and to help visitors locate their fallen soldiers. “It was by far the most humbling experience of my life.”
