For those of you who just found me, I’m Gary.
I love real estate. And I love my family, animals, and your referrals!
Real estate has been something I have loved for a long time. Ever since a small boy trailing behind my grandpa as he worked at landscaping in the avenues and around the Salt Lake Country Club homes. I’d always believed I would end up in real estate. Even after I was newly married, and working random jobs to make ends meet, I always loved looking at and studying houses, visiting “open houses” and driving through neighborhoods getting a feel for things. But it wasn’t until a few years later, (1999) that I decided to get my real estate license and take the gamble to jump in with both feet!
Real estate is both challenging and fun, and once immersed, I finally stopped dreading waking up each day. Even navigating through the real estate crash when Realtor’s, along with homeowners, especially took some hits, but with the support of my family I managed to make it through to better days.
I have lived in Utah for about 38 years of my life so when I’m asked if “I know the area” or am familiar with “Utah’s Best Neighborhoods” I can speak with experience. Real estate is my passion, so the saying “love what you do, and you never work a day in your life.” certainly applies to me working in real estate!
I mentioned the support of my family above, and even more than life, they mean everything to me. My best friend and love of my life, my wife, my musical daughter (& her very patient husband), and my two amazing sons. These are the people who make up my favorite part of who I am. Meet the Thompsons!
I believe that how people treat others “when there is nothing in it for them” says a lot about a person. (This philosophy also applies to how we treat animals). Loving people, appreciating animals, and spending time outdoors, are some of my top priorities. And in the same light, I always treat my clients like family too!
My name is Gary Thompson. My Real Estate business is personal. Whether you are just beginning your search for a new home, checking up on a specific property, looking to sell your home, are interested in a “Free” market evaluation, or just interested in the Utah Real Estate Market, I would love to be your real estate connection.
Oh… and by the way, I am NEVER too busy for your referrals!
