New Web Search and a Fantastic 18.25 Acre Lot in Oakley

After weeks of rain, I am happy to say that summer in Park City is in full swing! As the Summer Solstice approaches, I have a few fantastic updates for you.

Last week, I launched my re-designed website at, and it has a much faster and more accurate MLS search engine.

You can also save searches on it, so you will be automatically notified when properties within your criteria come on the market. This is a much better option than Zillow, Trulia, or because  it is a true direct feed from the Park City MLS, and it updates real time. A lot of my clients will send me properties from one of these aformentioned affiliate sites, and I have to

Park City vs. Vail is a classic ski town showdown because both towns have stellar reputations, resorts, and amenities. It’s extra relevant with Vail Resorts now in both towns. You’re going to have to choose one and I want to help you make the best choice.

A weeklong ski vacation can easily cost $10,000 for a family of four.  You might as well get the most out of your investment and choose the best ski town you can find. It’s even more important to know more about a ski town if you’re looking at purchasing a home.

Whether you’re planning a vacation or looking into buying a new home, these are the most important factors to consider when deciding between Park City and Vail.

Everybody knows that Zillow is the 800lb Gorilla online, they have a great site and incredible technology.

I asked expert realtors around the country “Do you feel that Zillow will replace real estate agents?”

Larry Lawrence – Squaw Valley Realtor


Zillow is being used by some of our clients to search properties.  We work with our clients to help them sort through the data, whether from Zillow or elsewhere.  Our clients still need to get professional assistance in making their decisions to buy or to sell.  Zillow mainly gives a value and features of a property but does not address the variables in property attributes and disclosures.  As a result, buyers and sellers find they may overlook many of these important factors which can impact

I wanted to share an interesting investment opportunity with you in Old Town.

North Star is a large duplex that generates strong rental revenue, and unlike a lot of properties in Old Town, is NOT historical. This property can be torn down and re-developed, so no preservation rules means bring your bulldozer.

With the “Vail Effect” in full force, this is a chance to tie up two large lots (70’ x 140’ each) that currently throw off strong rental income.  Then, whenever you are ready, you can build two large homes, spec, custom, your choice! These lots have fantastic views, and are walking distance to Park City Mountain Resort.

Both sides have been rented heavily, and annually gross over $100,000 each. With 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, and a 2 car garage on

What’s better than waking up on a powder day, having breakfast at home with your family, and stepping out your door to ski some fresh powder or immaculately groomed corduroy? No bumper-to-bumper traffic, just fresh snow and the silence of the mountain. Not much. Maybe a glass of scotch or wine in one of these homes at the end of your day. From 11 bedroom, historic Park City family homes to 10,000 sq ft contemporary mountain sanctuaries, Park City has homes for a variety of dreams.

Sometimes you need to escape Park City for a long weekend and Zion National Park is a breathtaking natural wonder within easy reach. When spring weather starts to creep into Park City, you’ll find sublime 70 degree days waiting for you in Zion’s towering canyons.

It’s only a 5-hour drive from Park City to some of the world’s best hiking, canyoneering, backpacking, horseback riding, climbing, and fly fishing in Zion. You could even take a 1-hour flight from Salt Lake City International to St. George’s municipal airport and make a short drive by rental car.

The park is located just outside the town of Springdale and you won’t even have to rough it (unless you want to). Stay on a luxurious ranch just outside the park, in a full-service spa, or

Recently, I listed a home in Lower Pinebrook that has yet to hit the market, here is a great open

The home is a little over 4000 square feet with 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, flat driveway,  large lower level, and many more great features. The current owners have landscaped the entire property so you have a very colorful and inviting yard in the summertime. This home is a great opportunity in the Boothill area of Pinebrook, and a great family neighborhood. You will enjoy being very close to shopping, restaurants, schools, and very quick commute to Salt Lake City or Main Street, and the ski resorts.

Currently, I do not have photos as the sellers are prepping the home for sale, listing it at a very realistic price. If you wish to inquire about this home

How many times have we heard pricing described as $99.99, 999.99, or $1,999,990? Its all over the place, and we have all grown up being bombarded with the psychology of being told $999.99 is LESS that $1,000.00

In today’s world, almost every real estate showing starts out with an online search, to be followed up a visit to the property, should the online tour past muster.

In a sampling of all currently listed homes in the Park City Limits, there are 127 homes on the market, and I found 26 listings priced with what I call the “just under” strategy.  There is one in particular that is listed at $899,999,  juuuuust under $900,000!

My point is that in todays world, the major property search portals, examples being Zillow, Trulia, and the
