Nov 13 - David Dowie, Summit Sotheby's International Realty
The service and quality provided by Laurie Wing was exceptional. She was not only responsive and reliable, but also able to negotiate a lower purchase price than I had expected. In addition, Laurie persistently followed through on arranging services to be completed by two contractors outside of the sale agreement, even meeting them at the site when I could not be there, and one of which occurred after the sale had closed! David Dowie also stepped in immediately to help when a scheduling conflict put completion of the services at risk. The experience exceeded expectations from start to finish.
David Dowie represented us on both our purchases of homes in the Park City area and was great at (i) understanding what we wanted -- and showing us properties that matched our stated needs, (ii) helping negotiate reasonable terms, (iii) helping lead a structured and thorough diligence process and (iv) driving the negotiations based on what diligence uncovered to get us a good price.
I highly recommend David and his partner Laurie!!
Working with Laurie and David was a great experience. Living more than 1000 miles away and considering purchasing a vacation home can be an uncomfortable experience. Starting with our first conference call Laurie put us at ease and demonstrated that our needs were first and foremost. Her knowledge of the Park City area is extremely impressive and she was able to clearly articulate the positives and negatives of each area we considered. Both Laurie and David took the time to understand what are motivators were and communicate how they felt each of the homes we toured matched up with our needs. One of the key items we appreciated in working with Laurie and David that there was no sales pressure on us to purchase a home despite them spending the entire Labor day weekend with us. Furthermore, we also appreciated that David and Laurie also gave us their individual opinions on specific properties without concern that their individual opinions may not be completely aligned. This conveyed honesty to us; combined with the zero sales pressure we were completely comfortable with Laurie and David. Finally, they are an extremely fun team to work with and made the entire process better than we could have ever expected. I look forward to working with them again when we buy our next home in Park City and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a vacation or full time home in Park City or the surrounding areas.
Buying a new home is a challenging experience. We would have struggled to complete the purchase without the professional advice and consistent support from David & Laurie. Throughout the process, and continuing after the closing, David & Laurie have spent time and offered advice on many issues concerning our new home, local contacts and other helpful information.
We'd highly recommend this dynamic duo to anyone interested in buying property in the Park City area.
I have bought and sold several properties with David Dowie & Laurie Wing. They are extremely professional. David got to know me as a client before finding me the perfect property. The stayed in touch with me knowing I would be looking for the next flip. They never pressured me to buy or sell. It was a please working with both David and Laurie. When I sold my property, they had several buyers before the listing went active. You will not be disappointed working with David Dowie & Laurie Wing.
Laurie and David were a pleasure to work with. They know the area very well and always were very positive and encouraging throughout the process. I would refer them (and have) to any of my friends. I give them my very highest recommendation!

David & Laurie did a masterful job assisting with selling my home. They provided outstanding tips, recommended resources, etc. to make sure we were able to sell the house as quickly as possible. I was beyond belief at how quickly we were able to receive an offer of value & proceed under contract.
From my first meeting with David and Laurie I knew I was in competent and caring hands. Selling your home can be very stressful, however, Laurie's positive spirit helped take a lot of the stress off of me as a seller. Laurie and David went beyond the call of duty by helping me with some small projects needed to be completed to get my house ready to sell. Laurie came and helped me pack and even brought some sugary treats for me with her to keep my energy up! I recommend this team to anyone needing to buy or sell a home in the Park City area.
Laurie and David are truly a team, and their attentiveness to the client and the transaction flow was uniform and seamless. They brought to the table a breadth of knowledge of the local market as well as well-analyzed dynamics that drive it. In my particular case their access to the Sotheby's network was an invaluable contribution. Their long-term local involvement, superior communication skills and can-do attitude helped fast-track some of the necessary hurdles in a unique deal. Laurie also let me tap into her extensive list of experienced home service providers. They are a pleasure to work with!
David was outstanding to work with! He did an excellent job guiding us through the home buying process. We were specific in what we were looking for and David did not try to sell us anything different, despite limited inventory. Using his network, he managed to find exactly what we were looking for and a very short amount of time. We are extremely satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend him.
David represented us as buyers in the Park City, Utah market. He did an absolutely fantastic job in helping us purchase the right property. Because of his background as a builder/developer David provided incredible insight. He is extremely knowledgeable and strategic in analyzing market opportunities. During our transaction he was able to work through several obstacles and represented us in a very professional manner. If you are looking for a local partner focused on finding his clients the right property - He's the guy
I have worked with many real estate professionals, and David Dowie is easily the most knowledgeable and helpful agent I have met. David showed my wife and me approximately 30 homes in the Park City area, and David was very familiar with every home, having previously sold a number of them. We had a finalized, accepted offer within a week of arriving in Park City. Throughout the purchase process, David referred us to experienced individuals to help us with all the different obstacles that come along with a home purchase. I have no doubt that without David and his team, we would still be looking for our dream home instead of moving in in a few weeks. Each one of the five star ratings above is well deserved.
Our experience in selling our home was eased by the professionalism of David Dowie. The process from photo shoot to open house to sale was key to our selling our home on the first day it was listed. I would highly recommend David and his crew if your looking for professional representation and superior results.
