Abbi Martz has an extensive understanding of luxury resort real estate. Having worked in the Real Estate industry in Park City and Deer Valley® since 2005, she spent the first eight years honing her listening, sales, marketing, and negotiating skills while working as a licensed assistant and sales associate alongside four of the most successful Realtors® in the country.
Today as a sales associate with Summit Sotheby’s International Realty, she consistently ranks among the top associates in Deer Valley® and Park City. Her genuine warmth, insight, integrity, comprehensive knowledge and professionalism are well known and respected by clients and colleagues alike.
Throughout her career, Abbi has represented a wide variety of developments and property types, including being on the listing teams for multiple high-end condo hotels, homesite developments, gated communities and luxury estates located on the ski slopes of Deer Valley Resort®. Her deep market knowledge in combination with a keen eye for what sells and understanding for current buyer wants and needs enables her to successfully meet lifestyle and investment goals for her clientele. Of note was her four-year collaboration as a sales member representing the developer at Montage Residences Deer Valley, where she was a major contributor in selling out the building. She represented the highest priced condominium sale in a calendar year and maintains strong market share in a handful of communities in which she focuses. Abbi has earned Professional Achievement Awards from the Park City Board of Realtors® the last five consecutive years.
Abbi cares deeply about helping her clients make sound decisions. Her work style can be described as attentive and detail oriented, savvy, energetic and friendly, forward-thinking, dependable, resourceful, and highly capable. No task is too big
or too small—from making connections within the community for newcomers, instructions on where to find fun hiking or ski trails, reimagining spaces within a property, or strategizing with Sellers to prepare a property for market launch. Abbi’s commitment to adding value goes as far as having her own collection of staging items to ensure each property she represents is positioned appropriately with current design and market trends.
Born and raised in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Abbi comes from a family with a skiing legacy. Her formative years were spent on the ski slopes and exploring in the wilderness at her family’s rustic lake cabin in Maine. She attended high school in Vermont to focus on ski racing, and competed extensively throughout Europe, Canada, New Zealand, and the U.S. Abbi graduated from Colby College in Waterville, Maine with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business and History and was a six-time NCAA All-American skier. Her senior year, Abbi was the NCAA Division I National Alpine Skiing Champion.
When not at the office, you will find Abbi skiing, mountain biking, hiking, camping in her Escapod off-road trailer, and generally enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. Her husband John was born and raised in Park City and he shows Abbi and their two children all the best spots and trails. Abbi also enjoys the rich history of Park City and helping shape the future of her community, fostering preservation of open spaces, an active and healthy lifestyle, and staying true to the many reasons that drew us all to Park City in the first place.
Abbi, along with her business partner, Bill, have been helping us find a home in Park City for almost a year. My husband and I have made offers on several properties ranging from homes to condos. Abbi and Bill have helped us every step of the way offering their local knowledge of the area and real estate values. We closed on a condo last week and are thrilled. We could not have made this happen without their support. Abbi is efficient, intelligent and fun. What a combo! We highly recommend Abbi Martz and Bill Ligety.
Abbi was with us on our PC real estate journey from the beginning. With her knowledge of Park City, she drove us through all the various neighborhoods so we could get our bearings, working within our budget parameters. When we were trigger shy on buying until we had settled into town, understood elements like proximity to town and to the mountains, and schools, she helped us find a rental property. Throughout the process, Abbi was professional, always organized, and very thoughtful about our family, our lifestyle and our preferences. She was patient with us for almost a full year and in the end she found us our dream home. Even after closing, Abbi has still been an active participant and advocate for us. She has been an incredible resource for information and guidance - far beyond the purchase of our home. We highly recommend her!
We were first introduced to Bill and Abbi by a longtime and trusted friend in Park City. When we first met, virtually as it was during the pandemic, Bill and Abbi listened thoroughly and thoughtfully as we talked about the home and life we might envision in Utah. They asked intelligent questions and then followed up with a great deal of market information and some initial thoughts. They stayed in touch consistently and kept us completely informed about opportunities and the state of the market. When we identified the right property, they moved swiftly, negotiated intelligently and handled themselves with complete integrity. We achieved a great result and felt completely comfortable and confident throughout the entire process. When our friend initially referred us to Bill and Abbi, she said “they’re hard working, smart and 100% trustworthy” – and that was exactly what we experienced.
Abbi's advice and hard work resulted in an excellent experience that exceeded our expectations. She provided us with all of the information that we needed to effectively price our property. She put in long hours helping us to prepare our home for photos, video, virtual tour and viewing by prospective buyers. Additionally, Abbi introduced us to a colleague in another state who helped us purchase our new home; it was another wonderful experience.
Abbi was instrumental in helping us sell our Deer Valley property before it even went to market with exceptionally strong pricing. Her and Bill’s knowledge of the market, attention to detail and guidance helped to make the process seamless. She’s on it! On top of that, she introduced to a colleague in the Santa Fe market who helped us buy a home in a very tight market. So we’re grateful to her on both the sell and buy side. I’d recommend Abbi to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Park City market.
I see Abbi as my most trusted real estate partner and much more than an awesome broker. She is everything you would want to represent you in a luxury home transaction: highly professional, always ethical, exceptionally hard working, incredibly responsive and her knowledge of the Park City market is deep and thorough. She also has an extensive network of colleagues and friends in the area so she immediately adds value to any question you might have even if it's outside of her responsibility representing you in a sale or purchase. She has been my partner for 3 purchases and 3 sales of high-end real estate in Park City and she is absolutely top notch. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Look no further. She is amazing!
Thank you for getting this done in a way that worked for everyone and also all of the communication and thinking through best paths to get from A to B. Super appreciated!
Abbi and Bill, thank you so much for everything you did for us in this process, making it the smoothest real estate transaction ever. You guys are truly amazing and, quite frankly, the best agents we have ever worked with. The service, care, and attention to detail that you provided is second to none. We are thrilled with the house and even more excited to have you in our lives.
The process and ‘journey’ we experienced with Bill Ligety and Abbi Martz was so exceptionally wonderful, that we give them our highest praise. Our quest began in a ‘hot market’, with limited inventory. Abbi and Bill ensured a nice representation for BOTH of our requirements, but also included a sampling of other property types. Bill and Abbi took our desire to purchase a property in our selected market to possibilities beyond what was available on the market. Through their deep understanding of the community and Bill’s extensive relations, they were able to cultivate interest from sellers that did not have properties on the market or even thinking of selling. Their intimate knowledge of each property’s history, owners, situation, etc., was a unique Bill and Abbi team highlight. They diligently and painstakingly worked through remediation notes for removing contingencies and securing fair credit/adjustments. They advocated, strongly, on behalf of us as their clients. We felt that we were all part of one team, and that Bill and Abbi truly cared about our interest, potentially even at the expense of losing out a commission. We are deeply grateful to Bill and Abbi for guiding us to a new community, and a new chapter in our lives.
Abbi and Bill are a dynamic duo with all of the complementary personal and professional skills that spell success. From the first call to the hand shaking at closing, and throughout every step of the process. They were thoughtful, prepared, courteous and comprehensively organized with every facet of our experience. They gave my wife and me confidence that they could meet our goals and objectives. Not only did they - they far exceeded them!
I am very, very appreciative that you found this house for me, with all it’s twists and turns of already having an offer when we started, and I couldn’t be happier to be here! Thank you for your hard and diligent work in helping me find the perfect house.
Bill Ligety and Abbi Martz are a results oriented, professional team. They represented us in selling vacant land in Deer Valley. With their comprehensive knowledge of Deer Valley real estate, their strong connections in the community, and wide outreach through Sotheby’s International Realty, they were highly effective in all aspects of the sale. They knew just what would be successful in the current market and kept us apprised every step of the way.
In one word, Abbi can be described as tremendous. She was able to find us a great property in what seemed to be an impossible market for buyers, and on a very tight timeline. She is highly competent, professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Abbi for any of your real estate needs in the Park City area.
My wife and I were introduced to Bill and Abbi just prior to a planned New Years Eve ski trip to Deer Valley. We were interested in exploring properties during our trip, but we didn’t leave ourselves a great deal of time to do so. Fortunately, we had Bill and Abbi on our side. Not only did they work within our tight time frame to schedule every property we wished to see, but they provided a great deal of expertise, data, and research to help us make a sound decision. Within 30 days of meeting them for the first time, we closed on our property. Bill and Abbi were organized, thoughtful, available, and professional throughout the entire experience. They truly made it a smooth experience for us from start to finish. We highly recommend Bill and Abbi for any purchase or sale you may be contemplating.
Abbi is a complete rockstar. She was my agent on two of many real estate transactions in the last few years. These two transactions were an absolute dream - fair prices paid / sold, very little stress, and strong negotiating by Abbi. This is all despite some nuance about the properties involved, having a home occupied by renters with at-risk children right as COVID hit, me changing listing dates on her several times, etc. Abbi handled it all with grace, went over the top to help me in preparing / taking care of the house while I was out of state (she even mowed my lawn and weeded when it got out of control and I couldn't find a service), and generally made me less stressed and more confident at every point in the process. On this last sale, I feel like I did maybe less than one hour of work in the entire process, I never even made the 4 hour drive to check on the house because Abbi had it covered from start to finish. I would never even consider using anyone but Abbi on a Utah transaction at this point.
Bill and Abbi made purchasing a ski home long distance easy and enjoyable. We flew in from Wisconsin for two days of touring homes and they had everything lined up as well as beautifully prepared booklets of the places we toured, and maps of the area. We had time for second looks on the properties we were interested in. Everything flowed smoothly and we made excellent use of our limited time. Bill and Abbi have extensive ties to and knowledge of the Upper Deer Valley area in which we were interested, and we found that helpful when choosing the place that was right for us. They are also extremely detail oriented and made closing go very smoothly. We are busy professionals with four children and we wanted some "hand-holding." They introduced us to contractors that were needed for contingency repairs and reminded us of every deadline. They provided a list of contacts and click-throughs to city municipalities, cable, alarm companies, property managers, etc. Absolutely everything we needed to do in order to purchase a home was spelled out and made simple for us. Four months after closing, when the snow was gone so that roof repair could be finished, they reminded us about it (we'd already forgotten about it). Throughout the process, Bill and Abbi were always accessible by phone call, text, or email, and they are delightful to work with. We couldn't be happier with our new home and we highly recommend Bill Ligety and Abbi Martz.
Amazing to work with and as first time home buyers, Abbi took the time to walk us through all the steps and help us through the negotiation process with a short timeline!
After showing us so many fabulous homes in upper Deer Valley over the past year you offered to contact the sellers of a property which was not on the market and within days we were under contract! Amazing. Then, despite the COVID19 hurdles you both delivered exemplary service with your attention to detail and response times which allowed us to navigate the process of buying our home without a hiccup. The negotiations, coordination of inspections, appraisals, estimates on repairs, transferring utility services, HOA agreements, etc. were all handled seamlessly, professionally and the best part, cheerfully! You two are special people. We felt reassured throughout the process with your knowledge of the area and concern for our happiness.
I wish we had started our sale process with Bill and Abbi. They worked hard, they kept in touch and were consummate professionals. When we sold our house and had a very small window to close they arranged and supervised our packing and moving. We couldn’t have been more pleased with their services. We highly recommend Bill and Abbi.
You are an absolute delight and consummate professional. Thank you for your patience, good nature and guidance.
My husband and I had a condo in Park City that we needed to sell. The transaction had a lot of moving parts. We were cross country, were doing a reverse 1031 exchange, had purchased another condo, needed to get our condo on the market ASAP, but while we were getting our home on the market we moved our furniture out and had our old place staged. As a REALTOR in North Carolina, I knew we needed someone with attention to detail, knew the market, understood the real estate business and communicated. Bill and Abbi placed our condo on the market, astutely communicated with us on what we needed to do from our end, worked with the flowing marketing details of new furniture, pictures, etc., perfectly. They got our condo sold quickly, for top dollar, and the attention to detail and communication thru the contract to closing phase was exceptional. I highly recommend Bill Ligety and Abbi Martz for your real estate transaction. They are true professionals!
Abbi and Bill, thank you for your terrific work. You were able to close the sale quickly in less than three months at a price significantly higher than any previous sale in our neighborhood. You’ll always have our highest recommendation and we can’t thank you enough for all you accomplished for us.
Last spring Bill and Abbi Martz helped us sell our home and purchase another home nearby in upper Deer Valley. We were delighted with their services and professionalism. Their knowledge of the upper Deer Valley marketplace is superb. The research and presentations of market comps were spot on and easy to understand. Their suggestions and help with staging and presentation of the property made for a readily marketable presentation. Their use of excellent photography and first class brochures as outstanding. Their open houses and use of existing client base made for a fast sale. Bill and Abbi handled negotiations with the buyer regarding price and terms and many other details made the selling experience easy for us. And their continued follow thru on the due diligence, inspections, and numerous other details thru and after closing was a true blessing for us.
Abbi and Bill, we took a good look at a hand full of your “top-producer” competitors and are delighted that we selected you. Your price and market analysis were spot-on. Your marketing program was great and, to our pleasant surprise, produced a near full price buyer in a little over a month. You two were great in every step of the process, many thanks.
The two of you did an outstanding job. The attention to detail, foresight through the acquisition/negotiation process and timely communication led to the purchase of a great family home. In the event we buy and/or sell another home in the area, you are our first and only call.
Abbi was a perfect realtor for us. We were first time buyers and needed lots of help navigating a tricky negotiation and purchase process. Abbi was consistently honest and straightforward with us, often making note of challenges that we hadn't yet thought of, which (we think) is a rare quality for a realtor.
She was able to bring us to properties and show us how to look and what questions to ask. She had great knowledge of the Park City market and area and really helped us to see the pros and cons of buying a condo vs. house and of Park City's various neighborhoods.
We never felt that Abbi was leading us in a direction that we weren't ready for and always felt that she was being 100% honest with us. Abbi is energetic, bright and easy to work with. She knew when to take the reigns and be our leader and when to step back and allow us to discuss independently. We honestly aren't sure that we would have bought a home in Park City without her and will recommend her to other buyers with no hesitation. Lastly, we will plan to use her if and when we decide to sell our home.
Great agent! She has a wonderful personality and is so knowledgeable on the market in Park City. Her dedication to her clients is super, and she goes above and beyond! She helped us stage our home which made it perfect for showings. We would use her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone we know that is looking for the best agent in Park City.
