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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
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)
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)
