"My interaction with Heather & Sean began while sitting on a plane, waiting to push back for my flight to Utah. A quick search resulted in their website, which was amazingly straight-forward and easy to use, even on a handheld device. I found a couple of properties using their search filters and shot off a message of interest. By the time I landed I had emails from them with wonderful information about those properties, other options, and an open and flexible invite to showings for them all. I was amazed at not just the rapid response, but the diligence put into the responses, from the first correspondence, I felt better educated about the market, and we hadn’t even met yet. They worked completely around my schedule, showing me several properties, and demonstrating such a wealth of knowledge of Park City and the market, it was truly confidence inspiring. They assisted throughout the offering process, with recommendations and information, I’ve never been more comfortable with realtors and their assistance, and most of this was from 2,000 miles away. It was the smoothest house search, negotiation, and purchase I’ve ever made, even with challenges of distance and schedules, they were flawless, start to finish. Even after the purchase they’ve continued to offer info and assistance, making us feel at home in our new neighborhood in Park City. Heather and Sean are a rare find in any business, and especially in real estate, committed, diligent, competent, responsive, and friendly … you could not ask for a better real estate experience and I could not more highly recommend them."

"I hired Sean Matyja as my real estate agent to sell my home in Deer Valley. At the worst economic time in recent memory they were able to sell the property. Sean through diligent and professional state of the art marketing and advertising expertise was able to sell and close my property recently. I have worked as a spec builder since 1995 using numerous real estate agents and we had more showings, and great interest that made the sale go through, than I did with any other agent I used in the past. I would gladly use this expert agent again."

"Sean Matyja sold my property within only 28 days of being on the market. Through Sean's accurate conservative comparable pricing and historical price data of past like properties, a fair list price attracted a serious buyer as well as making a good profit margin for me the seller. Sean welcomed questions throughout the selling process which allowed me to make informed decisions. Nothing was left undone to end of the final close. For a first time seller, Sean made the process easy to follow."
