This Is Us SunCrest Parade

With our city’s celebration and parade cancelled, SunCrest Residents Roger Kraft and Alicia Dahl decided to plan their own just for our neighborhood.

The SunCrest Parade was an amazing event and one that will definitely be remembered! Special thanks to all those who planned, participated, and attended – SunCrest is the greatest!

Danielson’s SunCrest Story


Meet the Danielson’s. Their #SunCrestStory started during a heavy winter 12 years ago. “People look out for each other up here. It’s different—you feel safe and a part of something.” From painted seashells to a self-proclaimed trophy husband, this is one story you don’t want to miss!

Thank You, First Responders


What a weekend, SunCrest.

We are humbled and incredibly grateful for the countless number of first responders who quickly got to work on the #traversefire. Your dedication, sacrifice, hard work, and quick response is nothing short of amazing and we are continually appreciative of all that you do. THANK YOU!

We’re relieved that evacuation orders have been lifted and we can rest a little easier. While we are so thankful the fire wasn’t worse, it was an unfortunate reminder to us all how quickly things can spread and how careful and cautious we need to be. Stay safe and cautious out there.

5 questions to ask when hiring a Realtor


Having a great real estate professional on your team when buying or selling a house can be a huge help, and can save you loads of stress, hassle, headache, and money.

But how do you hire a Realtor? We always recommend interviewing an agent before hiring them, and here are a few sample questions to consider in the interview process.

Two Hollows Trail Highlight

The Two Hollows Trail is a mellow, peaceful trail that canvasses the East side of the SunCrest area. It’s a double wide track that is great for groups, families, and kiddos. Horses are also able to use this trail and yes, dogs are permitted on leash – woof, woof!

Getting to the trail is pretty easy thanks to its multiple access points. Canyon Point Road in Hidden Canyon Estates, Winged Trace Court in Mercer Reserve. The Two Hollows trail is an “out and back” style trail which allows hikers to choose a distance that best matches their hiking preferences. The Two Hollows Trail also connects to Mercer Mountain, Mercer Hollow, Fango, Hog Hollow, and Pork-U-Pine. If you’re up for an adventure, you’ve definitely got options here!

This trail features unobstructed views of the Mt. Timpanogos, Highland and Alpine City, and the Traverse Mountain Wilderness range. While hiking, keep an eye out for wildlife – deer, porcupine, and even an occasional Moose (yep, MOOSE!) in the less busier months. Expect to see dogs on leash (don’t forget yours!), hikers, bikers, families, and wildflowers. Most of the trail is exposed so sunscreen and water are recommended. Tip: This is a great trail for running!

We can’t wait to see your adventures! Be sure to share your pictures by tagging us @suncrestlifestyle.

Alien Tower Trail Highlight

The Deer Ridge Off Leash Area, more commonly referred to as the Alien Tower Trail, is one of the most popular trails to hike in SunCrest. It is a wide trail that makes it great for groups, families, kiddos, and the majority of the hike is a designated off leash area – perfect for your furry friends.

The trail starts at approximately 15215 S. Deer Ridge Drive. It’s pretty easy to find and accommodates plenty of parking. The trail is an “out and back” style trail which allows hikers to choose a distance that best matches their hiking preferences. The most popular destination is hiking to the triangulation tower aka the “Alien Tower” which features 360 degrees of Salt Lake County, Utah County, and the entire SunCrest neighborhood. At the peak, the elevation is just over 6,500 feet.

While hiking up, keep an eye out for wildlife – deer, porcupine, and even an occasional coyote in the less busier months. Expect to see dogs both on and off leash (don’t forget yours!), hikers, bikers, families, wildflowers and of course those coveted SunCrest views. Most of the trail is exposed and it can be a little windy at the peak so be sure to plan accordingly. Sunscreen, water, and a jacket are recommended. Tip: be sure to check back in the winter months, it’s a great snowshoeing trail.

We can’t wait to see your adventures! Be sure to share your pictures by tagging us @suncrestlifestyle.

4th Quarter Utah Market Report

4th Quarter Utah Market Report 

Cheers to a happy and healthy 2020. Hope you are off to a great start to your year. As you know here at Windermere we have a team dedicated to analyzing the market and making predictions. The following analysis of select counties of the Utah real estate market is provided by Windermere Real Estate Chief Economist Matthew Gardner. 
 
Here are 3 things we found interesting from Gardners Q3 Report
 
  • The number of homes for sale in the final quarter of the year was 14.4% lower than in the same period a year ago and 21.3% lower than the third quarter of 2019.
  • The average home price in the region continued to rise in the fourth quarter, with a year-over-year increase of 9.5% to an average of $403,186.
  • Inventory levels remain low, even in the face of modestly increasing market time.

Wondering what this may mean if you’re looking to buy or sell? The market looks different throughout the year so you’ll need a season-specific game plan. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. 

 
We hope that this information may assist you with making better-informed real estate decisions.
 
Our best, 
Scott and Robyn

This is SunCrest

The sun comes up over the mountain and shines on the gambel oak around you. The Salt Lake Valley has disappeared beneath the inversion, but in SunCrest, the sky is bright and blue. What will you do today? Sled with the family? Snowshoe down your favorite trail? Stop by the community clubhouse for the neighborhood mixer? Winter, spring, summer, fall—there’s always something to do. This is SunCrest. This is the SunCrest lifestyle.

Thank You SunCrest!

Wow – this was our biggest year yet! The continued generosity and support from our community to our annual Warm Winter Clothes Drive is nothing short of amazing. Your donations (hundreds of items!) benefitted The Family Support Center’s Midvale Life Start Village, a non-profit that provides housing and self-sufficiency program for homeless parents in Salt Lake County. Every item you gave will help someone stay a little warmer this winter.

We are moved by the personal stories you shared with me and Robyn. You told us about special trips to stores to buy items, making items when you’re able to find a minute or two, or saving stuff in basements, closets, and garages throughout the year for this drive and it always touches our hearts. We are so grateful for your continued partnership and support. 

Shout out to the SunCrest OA for allowing donations to dropped off at the clubhouse.

With all the gratitude we have, THANK YOU.
