Gary Howard REALTOR®

I bought my first house at the age of 20 with four friends who had formed an investment club. We turned it into a duplex, doing all the work ourselves, and sold it at a substantial profit. The process of buying at the right price, controlling remodeling costs and the resale experience was invaluable. Real estate has been a passion of mine ever since.

After studying marketing and advertising in college, I published the Intermountain Real Estate Review. It was a monthly newspaper that provided in-depth coverage of the development, finance, and real estate industry. I experienced 1978, a year that set several sales records and 1980 when 19-percent interest rates brought real estate sales to a halt.

In my real estate sales career I have evaluated and priced over 1,500 homes and in my first three years alone negotiated the sales of over 300 properties. Most agents will never obtain that level of experience. I have dealt with improper construction issues, water rights issues, subdivision issues, planning and zoning issues, hazardous waste problems, difficult finance issues, and more. I’ve seen good agents save their clients thousands of dollars and I’ve seen bad agents leave their clients with a mess.

Real Estate is a profession that requires continual study and evaluation to develop the understanding necessary to buy and sell at the optimal price. I take pride in determining your needs and wants and matching them with the best value available.

What are you known for?

In real estate my attention to detail. In my personal life, my cooking.

Born in:

Salt Lake City, UT

Proudest Moment:

I built the Olympic Announcement Party in 1995 hanging lights on the Salt Lake City and County Building. It was never done before and hasn't been done since.

Hardest thing you've ever done:

I put 16,000 rubber ducks in the Jordan River for the Make a Wish Foundation's first Rubber Ducky Derby. Getting them in was easy. Getting them all out was the hardest thing I have ever done.

Perfect day:

When a client says "thank you, that was great." That will even make the perfect week.

Best gift you've ever received:

I've had three people who have given me the best advice both serious and humorous. Learning from them has been the best gift I have received.

First job:

At the age of 14 I picked up trash in the parking lot at my neighborhood Safeway Store. The District Manager saw me and said the had to let me go because I was too young. Two years later the same store manager hired me as a bagger. I worked there for 6-years.

Secret talent:

I remember song lyrics.

Define success:

That moment when you sit down and smile, having filtered the day's efforts through your self criticism and you think to yourself; "damn, that was pretty good." That doesn't happen often, but it's great when it does.

What do you love about Utah?

In Utah, particularly Salt Lake City, you are 10-minutes from being in the mountains, 2-hours from being in wilderness, 5-hours from being in some of the most spectacular scenery God ever created, and in 1-hour and 45 minutes you can be in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, or Denver. We have music, theater and the arts and we have great food. We have a lot of juicy plums in this state.
