How to Buy and Sell Real Estate in Park City Today

The coronavirus pandemic and the resulting “work from home, learn from home” paradigm have caused many who might have previously considered a second home here to shift to moving here as full-time or half-time residents. Probably the most apparent trend to emerge out of the pandemic is a growing interest among luxury real estate consumers to look for properties in attractive areas that are at least somewhat removed from major population centers. The Wasatch Back fits this bill perfectly and we are learning that buyers are seeking different types of properties due to COVID-19. For example, well-organized home offices with direct outdoor access, touchless appliances, larger in-home workout rooms – all have emerged as the new “must haves.” Buyers also need better spaces for home schooling so homes with flex space are more attractive.

I am originally from London, England. I attended Eton College before graduating from the University of Bristol with a BSc Hons in Economics and Accounting in 1995. After graduating, I joined Citibank in London as a Foreign Exchange Trader and quickly proved himself as a positive, focused and highly productive trader. I later concluded my FX career running a trading desk in New York. It was from NY that I and my young family first visited Park City and we instantly appreciated its awesome beauty, fabulous amenities, unique location and family focused fun. "I had contacted a realtor and was looking at potential properties before we had finished our first ski trip!" It took a further 4 years from when I initially bought a vacation home in Deer Valley before I was able to engineer a permanent move to Utah. Being on all the different sides of Park City home ownership, I feel that I have a rare perspective which I look forward to sharing with you. I take great pleasure from assisting my clients with their purchases and sales in the area and I look forward to being able to do the same for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at any time with any questions at all.
