Mary Bransford Leader specializes in the Deer Valley and Park City vacation home market. She also enjoys assisting others - from first-time home buyers to new construction purchases throughout the greater Park City area. A fifth-generation landowner in Summit and Wasatch counties, Mary returned to her roots in 2001 and commenced a new career in Real Estate after spending 25 years on the West Coast, dividing time equally between Northern and Southern California.
Preceding her return to Utah, she was employed by the Department of Interior in San Francisco assisting with the management of The Presidio, at the time the newest National Park in the country. This provided an opportunity for Mary to hone her negotiating skills in reaching favorable outcomes between the Park, its residents and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Prior to joining Summit Sotheby's International Realty in 2013, Mary was a Top Producer locally at Jess Reid Real Estate and Prudential Utah Real Estate. The majority of her business is referral-based grounded on long-term relationships with multi-generations of home owners and local residents. Her sphere of influence allows her to frequently bring buyers and sellers together. Utilizing innovative approaches for promoting properties with the creative assistance of the Summit Sotheby’s marketing team, Mary frequently exceeds her clientele’s expectations.
Mary is known for her personal attention to detail, “going the extra-mile” and for the guidance that she provides to both buyers and sellers. She also savors the pre-sale process of preparing a property to make it “just right” prior to listing. Known locally for her hospitality and epicurean skills, Mary takes pride that her open houses introducing a property to the local real estate community consistently exceed her sellers’ expectations.
With designations as an Accredited Buyer Representative, Resort and Second-Home Specialist, Seller Representative Specialist and e-PRO Certification, Mary is a respected member of the Wasatch Front and Park City multiple listing services.
Balancing her career with a commitment to serving the local non-profit community Mary feels most fortunate to reside among the magnificent mountains surrounding Park City with her husband Lindon, a renowned graphic designer. They have two daughters in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles.

We can say that this has been the most pleasant and professional home sale we have ever been a part of. The pricing and marketing were spot on. The sale itself was seamless. Thanks so much. If we are ever in the market here again, you will be our team. Cheers!

After thirty wonderful years of enjoying our condominium in Deer Valley, we decided it was time to sell. Since we took great pride in our quality residence, we searched for a comparable realtor to handle our sale. We found them in the persons of Bill and Mary. I have never dealt with a more professional team. From start to finish, they accomplished everything that they promised. They know their business and they deliver.

I recently sold my townhouse in Upper Deer Valley after having been a limited time denizen for some thirty-seven years in the Park City area. In addition, at times in the past I have sold at least four other condos as well as many other types of real property in connection with my law practice. During these experiences, I worked with many real estate brokers. However, my recent experience with Bill and Mary was the most satisfying. Their responsiveness, their knowledge of the local market, their candor and overall professionalism make them superior examples of their craft. I would gladly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of selling their property in the Park City area.
