Alicia Dye - Transaction Coordinator:
Alicia has been licensed for 4 years (2013). She started her career working in real estate with buyers, and now, she handles everything from going under contract to handling closings. She loves real estate because it is fast-paced and there's always something new to learn, plus, she wanted to do something that really impacted people's lives. Prior to real estate, she was a massage therapist and an office manager. She's been married for 10 years and has one fur-baby. As a Utah native, she appreciates Utah's mountains, and outdoor activities - such as snowshoeing, hiking, camping, and swimming in her pool (which she built!). She absolutely loves to travel and run marathons. However, on top of all of that, she's an avid baker. She's in a volunteer/charity group who makes cakes for seniors in hospice and children in foster care. You can usually find her going to the movies with a cup of coffee and ice cream.
Rachel Houskeeper - Home Buying Advisor:
Born and raised in Utah, I have been helping families make the dream of home ownership come true since 2007. I believe that integrity, great communication, being reliable, and putting my client’s needs first, help make the process of buying a home less stressful and an enjoyable experience. I have three amazing kids. I enjoy the outdoors, movies, music, board games and spending time with family.
Sam Fox-Huntress - Marketing Coordinator:
Born and raised in Bountiful, Utah, Sam has been part of the digital design scene since he was young. He started his own small "business" when he was a teenager, being a photo/videographer for families who wanted footage of their kids participating in extracurricular activities. Before he even graduated high school, he was working in the professional work environment doing package design, brand development, marketing strategies, photo/videography professionally, and running many business social media profiles. He's been doing it ever since. He's now in college and is actively engaged in reading new books and watching the latest TED talks. He loves the outdoors, racing, and overall, adventure. He also enjoys playing foosball and ping-pong, however, he never claimed he was very good. Sam lives harmoniously on the splendid coast of the Great Salt Lake with his wife, Emily, and his dog. He plans to travel around Europe and such, but he should probably explore his own state first.
Paul Hodges - Home Buying Advisor:
Before joining the exciting field of real estate, Paul worked for many years in customer service and sales management. Many of the lessons and skills he has learned have helped shape him into a real estate agent that clients can trust and want to work with. His commitment to his clients and the willingness to go above and beyond are a few of the ways that set him apart in the Real Estate industry. Born in Utah and raised in Riverton, Paul enjoys many things this great state has to offer. He enjoys the outdoors, football, golf, movies, traveling to new places, and spending time with family and good friends.
