Negar listed my home in Eden in July of 2014. At the time my luxury home had been for sale for 5 years - with a few showings, but not one single offer. I was pretty discouraged about the market,the obviously gloomy times that seemed to make it impossible to sell a property like mine - and had a sense that I best pull it off the market and wait it out.
From the first meeting with Negar I felt a sense of possibility - she took her time to get to know my property and all its features very thoroughly. She did a lot of research into where and how it would fit into her portfolio and client base, and then came up with a marketing strategy that was honest about its potential as well as the potential obstacles we might be facing. She really “got” the value of the home and understood that the buyer profile is someone looking for a luxury, legacy property. From day one she treated it as such, I could sense the way she believed in it, the way she respected and valued it - and that sense was palpable to the prospective buyers and their agents.
Within 6 months she brought me my first offer that was more than acceptable. Due to circumstances beyond our control the buyers cancelled, yet Negar did not let that discourage her one bit. She continued to come up with out-of-the-box ideas and strategies to position my out-of-the-box home. She was extremely responsive and invested in the value of my home and the potential of its sale, making me feel like I was her only client! Every step along the way I knew that she had my best interest at heart, that she was in it with me and deeply cared. She helped me identify obstacles, and one by one we removed them until we found the perfect buyer and the smoothest sales process that I could have imagined. Her love for her job, her natural enthusiasm for meeting a challenge, her depth of knowledge in her field, her resourcefulness and genuine way of connecting with clients, buyers and other agents alike, make her a highly reliable, trustworthy and very professional partner.Martina Meyer, Eden, Utah (Seller)
Negar (and Jean Marc) helped us achieve success in the sale of our luxury townhome and simultaneous purchase of our new home we just built. Negar presents a very professional and thoughtful approach to creating a smart and elegant sale package. Her marketing efforts are well thought-out and smartly designed. In fact, our sale came from someone out of state surfing Negar’s website. As we started getting offers, Negar never pressed us to take something we didn’t want, simply to achieve a sale. In the end, we got a very good offer that didn’t require a lot of back and forth, and we also received two back-up offers that were even higher. Our sale went smoothly and our new home is spectacular. Thanks Negar & Jean Marc!Kate and David Wiener, Park City, Utah (Buyer & Seller)
We listed our home with other agents with few showings and without results. Once we moved our listing to Negar Chevre and Scott Larson of Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices, we witnessed a dramatic and measurable spike in showings. We had several serious interested buyers and eventually sold our Park City home. Scott and Negar were very professional each step through the process from listing to closing and I would highly recommend them.Alan Wheatley, Goshawk Ranch Park City, Utah (Seller)
We were so impressed with Negar’s level of service and professionalism. She produced the most stunning marketing materials for our home in Salt Lake City. The photography was beautiful and professional. Our home sold within a week at above asking price. We highly recommend her and would use her again.Negin and Steve Urry, Salt Lake City (Sellers)
About two years ago we purchased a condo at the Canyons in a new construction project. From the start Negar impressed us as very insightful and knowledgeable not only in regard of the property itself but even more so in all aspects of the future development in the village and the resort in general. Living out of state she has been our eyes and ears in Park City and a trustworthy and reliable partner. At the time of closing she worked tirelessly to find and to resolve issues related to the construction process. In a very hands-on fashion she stayed on top of item on the punch list, permits, inspections etc. This was truly above and beyond our highest expectations. She is a first class real estate expert and we can not give her enough credit for turning this purchase into a smooth transaction.Christina Kim and Karsten Fryburg, Indiana (Buyers, LIFT)
We were truly happy to have had Negar and Jean-Marc as our Realtors in our search for the ideal home to relocate to from Santa Monica California. Our journey for our new Park City home began over two years ago when we started exploring various neighborhoods. Thanks to Negar and Jean-Marc’s in-depth knowledge of the nuances of the various communities and their desire to understand our requirements and ensure that we were not rushed, we were finally able to find our dream home, a contemporary remodel in the beautiful Park Meadows neighborhood. Negar and Jean-Marc exceeded our expectations on every level and even met us on Easter Sunday to give us the keys to our new house! We couldn’t have asked for a more seamless experience and highly recommend both Negar and Jean-Marc for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the greater Park City area.Michael & Julia Caulder, Santa Monica, California (Buyers)
Negar and Jean-Marc are an 11 out of 10. As an entrepreneur with 600 employees, I appreciate customer service and Negar WOWED me at every opportunity. When I decided to add a friend to the vacation property investment she was patient to bring him up to speed. When my mortgage provider took their time to close, she worked tirelessly with the bank and developer to make sure all parties were comfortable with daily updates. She spent several days showing a wide arrange of locations / options and when we made the decision she went through all of the pros and cons. She made me feel like she cared as much as I did on this purchase and she became a close friend in the process. As someone who deals with brokers on a daily basis for work, I can honestly say I have NEVER worked with a broker of this caliber. Negar will forever be my Utah contact and I can only recommend her with the highest praise.Rob Cherun, New York, (New Construction Buyer)
Negar did an awesome job of helping us find a second home in the Park City area. She was an excellent communicator without being pushy. She is very upfront, very honest and very willing to help and go the extra mile to ensure we got, not only what we wanted, but that we were satisfied with the construction, the view and the location. She went way above and beyond what was required every step of the way.Neil and Patti Merion, Scottsdale, Arizona (Buyers New Construction)
We have bought and sold several homes over the past 20 years and we can honestly say we have never had a realtor that comes close to Negar. Her professionalism, attention to detail and genuine concern for her clients is remarkable. We were buying a new home which required us to make a lot of decisions on design and functionality and her recommendations were incredibly helpful. We have worked with many realtors in the past and none of them were as impressive as Negar. She made the home purchasing process smooth and reduced our anxiety. Negar is a true professional.Rob Jones and Shelley Petersen, San Mateo, California (Buyers)
My wife Toni and I were vacationing in Park City last month and we stayed in the Lift condos. We really liked the facilities and learned that there were still a few condos available. The front desk recommended Negar and I called her. She was very professional and we arranged to meet that afternoon. Negar showed Toni and I the condos we were interested in. One condo really caught our attention and Negar walked us through the steps to closure. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with questions we had. She seemed to know everyone. In short, Negar was an absolute pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Negar.Adam and Toni Heflin, Kansas (New Construction Buyers)
Negar was amazing to work with in the purchase of our new home. The words to best describe Negar are professional, extremely knowledgeable of all elements of her profession and someone that you can completely trust. Would I buy another home and/or have her represent me, absolutely!Renee and Russ Plumb, Atlanta, Georgia (Buyers)
We’ve been vacationing in Park City for the past ten years and started to explore an opportunity to purchase a condo. Many reservations came with the thought of purchasing a condo, which included finding a realtor who would listen to our needs. We first looked at a new project in Park City and Negar was the realtor who replied to our first inquiry. Although we ultimately decided not to purchase at that property, she still offered to assist us in finding the perfect place.
Negar is diligent, professional and really understands the needs of her clients. Kudos also goes to Jean- Marc, Negar’s husband, for offering to Facetime us the showing. This was the best option since we live out of state and it was at that point that we decided to put in an offer based on that showing. We are enjoying our new second home and look forward to creating many more family memories in Park City. Thank you Negar and Jean-Marc!Leann and Ted Koontz, Riverview, Florida (Buyers)
Having dealt with enumerable real estate experts in the past, through various real estate transactions, I can say without a grain of hyperbole that Negar is truly outstanding. She has the patience of a saint, and certainly looks out for the best interest of her client in all regards. I have come to learn that there are frequent curveballs encountered in the process of buying and selling real estate. Furthermore, most agents seem to prioritize ‘getting deals done’. A widely experienced, honest, intuitive, and tirelessly pro-active agent such as Negar can make all the difference. Negar marries her impressive set of professional attributes with a warm, calm, and sensible personality. She is always available for her clients and extremely dedicated to her career. I give her my highest order recommendation, and would not hesitate to work with her again in the future. You cannot find better.”Noah Sands, New York (New Construction Buyer)
Negar and her husband Jean-Marc are truly wonderful to work with. Very professional yet very warm. You immediately feel like you are working with friends you can trust. They did an outstanding job of understanding our preferences and helped us find the perfect home for our family in Park City. They also assisted us with the builder and contractors even after closing. We would not hesitate to recommend Negar and Jean-Marc to potential clients.John and Dana Lanigan, Bay Village, Ohio (Buyers)
After years of visiting, we finally decided to buy our second home in Park City. This was a difficult task considering the fact that we live so far away. We were so fortunate to have Negar and Jean-Marc at our side to help us. Once we decided on a townhome in Hideout, to be built, they represented us from far away, handling every detail, including selection of options. Throughout the process (8 months), both Negar and Jean-Marc looked after our interest, helping with making decisions and choices, even sending photos of the construction progress. At all times they were patient and wise. There is no way we could have done it without them. The end result is a beautiful home that we enjoy, the purchase of which was hassle free and actually pleasant. We have purchased and sold a number of properties. Never before have we encountered such professionalism and care. Thank you Negar and Jean-Marc. We are so grateful to have met you.Hanna and Jeff Skovronsky, Virginia (Buyers New Construction)
We had a great experience working with Negar and BHHS. She responded to every question very timely and jumped on any issue that we had in the process. The best compliment we can offer is that when there was a problem she ran towards it and not away from it! That is the foundation of great customer care. She made this purchase as easy as it could possibly be.Dave and Stephanie Rich (Buyers LIFT New Development)
We purchased our home in Enclave at Sun Canyon just over two years ago and are extremely pleased with every aspect of the process. The quality of the buildout, the floorplan layouts, and the design finishes are outstanding and a testament to the professionalism of the developer/builder Synergy. Steve and his team have been extremely responsive to any issue we needed addressed (and there were only a few very minor post-sale punch out items). Even though we live in Dallas and were gone for most of the final buildout and closing, the Synergy team made things very seamless and easy. We also allowed Synergy to use our home as a model home when we were not using it. Negar Chevre-Shams was outstanding to deal with during that process. She constantly did significantly more than our agreement called for and always put our needs and our home first. We can’t thank her enough for looking after our home while using it as show home. We highly recommend both Negar and the entire Synergy team.Greg Douglass and Emily O’Halloran (Enclave at Sun Canyon Homeowners)
Negar found me the perfect home. As a someone relocating from Los Angeles, Park City was somewhat unfamiliar to me. She, very patiently, spent time showing different neighborhoods until we narrowed down exactly what I wanted. She ultimately found a beautiful off-market ranch in the perfect area at a very reasonable price. Negar is very professional, personable, and I have a new friend. I highly recommend her.Michelle LeRoy, Los Angeles, California (Buyer)
A couple years ago we decided to purchase a new construction condo at the base of the Canyons ski resort. The condo was in the Lift property listed by Berkshire Hathaway. The real estate agent that we met was Negar Chevre. She was professional and knowledgeable about the Lift Condos. We are so thankful that we had Negar as our agent. This was our first property that we purchased out side of our home in Wisconsin. We had a lot of questions and Negar always answered them promptly. She has been our guiding hand for over two years. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone. We have had a great experience.Bob & Ellen Arthur, Wisconsin (New Construction Buyers)
My wife and I had been looking at the Park City market for many years when we met Negar. Negar was extremely helpful in evaluating our options and providing information on the market to help us with our decision. After deciding to purchase, Negar provided excellent support in seeing the closing through and taking care of anything that came up during the process. We feel very fortunate to have had Negar’s services during our search and purchase and would absolutely rely on her for any future real estate needs.Denelle & Scot Fluharty, Scottsdale AZ (Buyers)
We came to Park City last year to look for a second home to spend the summer months and for ski trips with family and friends. When we stopped at an Open House property to get a feel for the area, we met Negar and we were lucky to find a Realtor who listened to what we were looking for. Negar provided us with an overview of the market that matched what we were looking for and recommended a few other developments to look at during our brief stay in Park City. She was very professional and followed up with additional properties and general information on the surrounding areas. When we returned a few months later to visit the properties we were interested in, she scheduled a full day of meetings with developers and listing agents to make sure we received all of the details we requested. In addition, she suggested other alternatives to the ski area properties to meet our goals and price objectives. As a result, we were able to find a new home under construction in a new development that exceeded our goals, and represents a great opportunity for appreciation. Although new construction is never easy, our situation as 'out of state' buyers, made it more challenging. Negar spent endless hours and effort to help manage all aspects of the process, and communicated with us on every detail. Without Negar's professionalism, experience and dedication to her job, we would not have been able to work through the issues before closing. In addition, she is respected by her peers and everyone who knows her.Gary and Karen Thompson, Scottsdale, Arizona (Buyer)
My wife and I recently purchased our Park City home and Negar was our real estate broker. She was involved with every aspect of the buying process. As out of town buyers, we relied on Negar to meet others at the house. Not only was she always available for inspections, follow up visits, appraisals, etc., she also helped with her amazing list of local contacts that helped for every job we needed, including a contractor for the addition we plan to make to our house, handymen, painters, home inspectors, appraisal companies, mortgage lender, etc. This was our 5th home purchase in the past 20 years and we've never had a real estate broker as pleasant, informed or helpful as Negar. We highly recommend her whether you are looking to buy or sell your home.Jonathan & Jamie Rubenstein, Florida (Buyers)
Kim and I want to thank you for your assistance in finding out new home. We have bought many homes over the years. Our experience with you was superior.Rock and Kim White, Hawaii (Buyer)
You are a great listener so you were able to quickly understand what would work best for us. This made the process very efficient and avoided the usual frustrations of finding a new home. We were able to quickly view and evaluate the best candidates and then make a sound decision. Your experience in the industry and our market allowed you to answer our questions fully and confidently.
The next time we are looking for a home you will be our realtor. We enjoyed working with you and truly appreciate your professionalism.
Negar did a fabulous job marketing and selling our home in Deer Valley. Negar took an extraordinary amount of time learning every aspect of our home, its' design features and criteria, as well as the neighborhood so she was able to properly position the home to potential buyers and their agents. This was very important as our buyer was concerned about the premium price we were asking as well as new development in the neighborhood. Her knowledge helped alleviate all the concerns our buyers had which led to a near full price offer. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy in the Park City area.Dennis & Elke Levine, Deer Valley Park City, Utah (Seller)
As a frequent buyer of high end luxury real estate, I only prefer a broker who is extremely efficient and transparent during the purchasing process. Negar was all of these and more during my recent purchase of a luxury new development condo in Park City. I was able to close my transaction swiftly with zero headache and will certainly use Negar again should I purchase any more real estate in the Park City or Deer Valley areas. Ultimately, what impressed me most about Negar's process is her immediate responses to my requests whether these be via email or text -- when you communicate efficiently with your broker, the purchasing process will be an absolutely enjoyable experience!Lewis and Stephanie T. , California (LIFT New Construction Purchasers)
As a real estate developer and broker, I have dealt with many real estate agents in the Western Mountain states for the past 30 years. Negar's level of professionalism and integrity is certainly refreshing. She is dedicated, hard working and knowledgeable. I am impressed with the innovative marketing platforms that she has provided for our development. I would highly recommend her to any one looking to buy or sell property in the Park City area. If you want an agent who will represent your best interests with honesty and integrity, Negar should be your first and only choice.Steve Urry, CEO Synergy Development, Park City, Utah (Developer Enclave at Sun Canyon)
As parents of an avid skiing and outdoor sports family on the East Coast, we always planned to live “out West” at some point in our lives. We had been considering several locations, but when a close family member purchased a property in Park City to eventually retire there, we started to get more serious about searching for a place.
He put us in touch with his agent, Negar Chevre-Shams, and it was quite honestly a perfect recommendation. Even though we had taken ski trips to Park City for more than 20 years, we knew very little (meaning nothing) about the real estate market. And, while we were under no time pressure, we knew searching for a home from afar was going to be a challenge.
Negar was amazingly helpful and very patient with us. Initially we had a punch list of must-haves and a price point in mind that were not exactly in synch with the market. She took the time to show us several different places and neighborhoods to get a sense of what we were after. From then on, she was very conscious of our time, and did not present any homes she knew we would not interest us. She would visit homes on her own to take pictures or conduct a “Facetime tour” for us so we could decide whether or not to see them in person. And she did a great job of helping us understand the market and prices for the type of home we wanted.
While we were not feeling any time pressure to buy, we found a home we really liked much sooner than expected. We were not ready to immediately move, but this was the house! Negar helped us think through the transaction, take care of the inspection, negotiate on the furnishings, sort out a lease-back option with the sellers, arrange a remote closing and too many other things to mention. She made the process seem so much less daunting.
Buying a home from afar can be amazingly stressful and fraught with issues. But working with Negar, the process was so smooth and friendly, we can hardly believe we now own a house in Park City. For anyone looking for a home, from near or far, we can’t recommend Negar highly enough.Cheryl and James Duckworth, Lynnfield MA (Buyers)
Negar and Jean-Marc made our two transactions in Park City (the sale of our townhouse and the purchase of our single family residence) a dream. Their professionalism, smarts, attention to detail, and spot-on advice made the transactions smooth and seamless. I will continue to recommend this team wholeheartedly.Gail and Andrew Goldstein, Park City UT and Annapolis MD (Sellers and Buyers)
Scott Larson and Negar Chevre-Shams were my Real Estate Agents for the sale of my home. I did not know what to expect, I had not sold a home for 15 years. Scott and Negar as a team were able to put me at ease with their professional and consoling insights. We as a team were able to negotiate a sale within a weekend, surpassing all my expectations. If I had to sale a home tomorrow their team would be my selection. Thanks for being there for me Scott and Negar.Steven Bowling, Park City, Utah (Seller)
We had the recent pleasure of dealing with Negar for the purchase of our ski home in Park City. What a delight she was to work with! In addition to being a lovely person, she pays tremendous attention to detail. She ably handled every one of the myriad questions we threw her way and proactively updated us throughout the construction process. When it finally came time to close, the effort she put in was extraordinary -- she caught 3 items on the punch list for every one that we did, and she worked persistently with the developer to make sure he agreed to every single one of our requests. We will absolutely be using Negar for any future real estate transactions in the Park City area and highly recommend that you do so as well.Jon Norman Finkel & Marva Norma, New York (New Construction Buyers)
We used you as our agent when purchasing our home when we moved to Park City several years ago. You did such a wonderful job then, that we promised when we needed a realtor next we would be sure to call you So this year when we were ready to sell, you were our first call. As before, you did an excellent job in all respects. You helped us establish a good price that would maximize our return while ensuring a sale in a reasonable time. Your few and inexpensive suggestions to prepare the home for sale made a huge difference. Your professional photographer and your sales copy made our listing stand out from the others. We immediately had a lot of interest and viewings. And within a few weeks we had an offer and sale at a great price. You make it look easy! But we know it is far from easy based on other agents we have struggled with in the past. Thanks again. You are a real professional.Kim and Rock White, Park City (Sellers)
For the past 22 years I have worked in the real estate profession in the capacities of real estate broker, property manager, asset manager,and chief financial officer. It has been my privilege to work with many other professionals in the real estate brokerage community and real estate development. From 2014 to 2016 Negar represented one of our residential developments in Provo, Utah. Negar represented our development company both on the sale of vacant residential parcels as well as the sale of an existing home. Negar is knowledgeable about the market and product type, she is intelligent and engaging, and thoroughly understood each buyer's needs and background and carefully and honestly presented each deal. In addition to being knowledgeable and professional she was absolutely honest with all parties in the transaction. When difficulties arose, as they often do during a real estate transaction, Negar would careful examine the needs and desires of each party and present a reasonable, rational solution. I can recommend Negar without hesitation.Keving Flanagean, CFO Esnet Management Group, Provo, Utah (Developer)
My husband and I have been taking our snow-loving family to Park City for winter skiing and snowboarding for many years. We have a lot of friends who own locally but were hesitant to take the big step of purchasing a second home. But given how easy it is to get here from California, we started giving home ownership serious thought this past summer when we discovered that not only is Park City an amazing winter destination, but it's truly a year-round outdoor sports mecca. We had fallen in love with Park City.
We met Negar as we were just starting to tiptoe into Park City's varied real estate options. We immediately hit it off with both Negar and her husband and when we decided to purchase, we knew that they would be the ones to help us. They understood our needs as an active family and worked with us to narrow down our choices and focus our real estate search. Coming from out of state, we needed a real estate agent who could work with us remotely and who could ensure that our visits to Utah were both efficient and carefully curated. When we were unable to visit a home in person, Negar would go above and beyond and take us on a "Facetime tour" of local property with her commentary to help give us a sense of the space.
When we decided to make an offer on a home, Negar was astute in crafting and managing the deal and helped bring the seller down significantly from their listing price. Her execution was excellent! As out of state purchasers, she helped us understand some of the specifics of purchasing in Utah that varied from the California real estate transactions we were accustomed to. She always kept on top of things, keeping the process moving along. She was also particularly helpful in providing advice and support in dealing with inspections and repairs. Throughout the process, Negar was responsive and thoughtful and just a lovely person to work with.
Overall Negar has made this purchase a wonderful experience for us. We can't wait to move into our new home. We would recommend working with Negar and would work with her again in a heartbeat.Anne and Gregory Toth, Los Altos, California (Buyers)
During the last fifty years, I have purchased and sold multiple properties using many different realtors. We recently purchased a condo in Park City and Negar Chèvre, our realtor, was really exceptional. She was so diligent in getting all the information so that I could make an informed decision. I consider her one of the best realtors I have ever used.Curt Gardner, Arizona (Buyer)
