This BLOG is focused on updating you on the most significant new sales and listings in the Park City area market on a weekly basis. All content is original. By finding and discussing what makes some properties standout in terms of location, design, and price, I can help buyers spot locations and property types that may meet their needs. I select properties from all members of the Park City Multiple Listing Service that have quality video presentations. These videos are the next best thing to an actual property tour. When you are sure that an actual visit to one or several properties is worth your time, we can make that an enjoyable experience. If you are considering the sale of a property you own, it can pay big dividends to see what comparable properties are selling for vs. what properties you may be competing with are listed for.

I don’t shy away from expressing my opinions concerning this market and I’ve had many years of experience in doing so, but I need to know what you want to accomplish before I can really help you. This website and my BLOG are just first steps in a process that needs to add value to your efforts, so pick up the phone and call me or send along any comments you have on my BLOG posts.

The big Park City headline of the week was " New York City firm acquires Mayflower land next to Deer Valley" http://www.parkrecord.com/news/firm-acquires-mayflower-parcel-near-deer-valley-resort/.#.Wfzfi1ke2VI.email . To get the full impact of this news you have to consider it as it relates to other development now underway and the news discussed in my 4/15/17 and 8/26/17 uncategorized posts concerning the acquisition of Deer Valley Resort by the as yet unnamed alliance between KSL Capital Partners and Aspen Skiing Company. The New York firm referenced is Extell Development Company, a privately held development company - https://extell.com . Extell president Gary Barnett, one of the biggest names in New York City real estate quietly purchased 40 acres adjacent to Deer Valley ski resort back in 2015 from an investor who had secured approvals to develop a hotel and roughly 200 condos on the site. Back in May 2016, the rumor was that Extell was looking to buy another 1,000 acres from the consortium of Dutch investors who have owned a large holding there since the 1980's. Now the acquisition of 2,300 acres announced yesterday combined with Extell's 40 acre Blue Ledge parcel opens up the opportunity for a year-round master-planned luxury resort in what could be a 30 year project. That development would add over 1,000 acres of ski terrain, lifts and parking in support of luxury residential and commercial development. One look at Extells New York property portfolio will give you some idea of how much the pool of prospects for Park City luxury property has expanded with this acquisition.
