Meet The Team

Tom Ward has been a proud resident of Park City for over 30 years. He has established himself as one of the premier Realtors in Park City with a reputation for building trustworthy relationships with clients and peers and delivering reliable results that surpass expectations. While his industry knowledge grows each year and adapts to changing market conditions, his goals remains the same: to help locals transition easily and effectively from one residence to another when the time is right, and to expertly orient newcomers to the area so they have everything they need to make an informed decision on what neighborhood and home is a best fit for them.

Since 1994, Tom has experienced firsthand the evolution and expansion of Park City from a sleepy mountain town to a world-class, year-round destination. By helping Parkites navigate their real estate goals over the last two decades, he has become a local expert, equipped with extensive knowledge of the community and its changes and challenges.
