Hot buys and Coming to Market: 1/16/17

Two condos have hit the market this week in Old Town and they won’t be around for long. 1482 Empire Ave 103 is Edelweiss Haus, right across the street from the base area at Park City Resort. 1509 Park Ave is one block away from the base area. Both would make excellent nightly or long-term…

Closed! Holiday Ranch Loop Rd

Congratulations to my and Mary Ciminelli’s client on the purchase of their Park City home! We had to move fast on this 4-bd, 2-ba house in Park Meadows but now they have a sweet mountain home minutes from the ski resorts and Old Town. Hooray!

Goldener Hirsch Hotel and Residences, pt IV

More news on the Goldener Hirsch expansion. This is the first release of the official sales brochure, and it comes with the disclaimer that floorplans, etc. are still being tweaked: Expecting the reservation process to begin late February 2017. There will be updates as we move along, and more information is due to be released…

Listing with Summit Sotheby’s International Realty

Though I will never diminish the magic that I bring to the party, the strength of my brand is vast. And in a world where the first showing of your home is online, the greater access I can provide to qualified people and distinctive properties the better. When you list with Summit Sotheby’s International Realty,…

Halloween, 2016

Every Halloween, the same. The costumed crowd begins to form. Pulsing, pushing, the swarm overtakes the street. The animals, adorned and incentivized. The humans, well-accessorized. As dusk settles, a weariness takes hold. Uphill they trudge with their prizes. Towards home.

Oh, Halloween

Presuming you’re not so dim as to choose a racist costume or to go running around terrorizing people with a chainsaw (“This is Miami, he has a gun”) there is nothing not to love about Halloween. The weather is usually beautiful, the last of the leaves are about to fall, and everything is properly autumn. Soups…

Timber Madness at 1403 Eagle Way

If you’ve ever watched Barnwood Builders you get the drift; somebody acquires an ancient barn or log home, they deconstruct it, then re-construct it either into the same shape structure or a modified structure. But the point is to save a building that has been let go far too long. It’s actually a beautiful way…

Dottie’s Kolaches

I can’t remember the first time I heard about kolaches, but I do remember first making them myself maybe 5 or 6 years ago off an archived newspaper recipe. A kolache is a beautiful little baked pastry with choose-your-own filling. They’re labor-intensive and taste best hot out of the oven, which puts them in the same category as donuts…

Vaguely Borgish: my LG Bluetooth Headset

I am a real estate agent which means I take 7,000 phone calls a day. Scrolling through my Recents is enough to give my thumb a cramp. I also drive, walk, type and text every minute I’m awake, I can’t spend my life with one hand holding my phone on my ear. My elbow would…

On the Free Will Improbability Factor

As a human I’m qualified to point out something ridiculous we do: get terribly worked up waiting for something to happen. Sure, using tools was a great achievement, and mourning the dead was another big day, but at some point we went straight off the rails and let ourselves invent fantasies about what might, what…
