Luxury Housing

When it comes to knowing the luxury market, you won’t be disappointed. Not only do I know how to strategically market and locate luxury properties, I have also built them.  One project I built in 1994 for the Salt Lake Home Builder’s Association Parade of Homes in Emigration Canyon called the “Le Veille Ferme” won 24 awards.  It was a French Country style two-story that changed the luxury home industry over the next 20 years.  It won the prestigious Governor’s Award for Interior Design as well as People’s Choice award.  The European styling of that home is still prevalent in today’s luxury home market.  This in depth experience gives our team a distinct edge for marketing luxury properties!

Personal Bio:

I was born and raised right here in Utah. Raised by a stay-at-home Mom who always kept us kids in line. Dad was a hard-working father who was a mechanical engineer at Hercules, now known as ATK. He taught me the value of hard work by example. At the age of 14, I started working part-time after school and on weekends. Attended Cottonwood High School then to the University of Utah in Business. In 1986 a friend told me to get into real estate. In 1988 I met my wife by chasing a prospective buyer out of a model home. Happily married to my wife Laurie ( my much better half) since 1989. We live in South Jordan City with our pup Sophie.

 

Hobbies & Interests:

I enjoy spending time with family. I enjoy fly fishing, downhill skiing, photography, gardening, (built my own greenhouse), riding ATVs in the mountains. Laurie and I have enjoyed traveling to many places. I love to Scuba dive and still do in my 60’s! Some of our favorite places are the Hawaiian Islands and the Oregon Coast along with the beautiful mountains and deserts of Utah. In the early morning hours of the winter season while it is dark outside I enjoy programming my WordPress website: www.UtahRealtyPlace.com and posing occasionally on Facebook.

 

Business Bio / Why

Just being available to answer questions about real estate.

Everything I do in my business and the way I do it is to make my client’s experience smooth and trouble-free.

Understanding the needs of a family’s housing situation is primary to me. Moving thru the twists and turns of the home sale or purchase and finding the right place that brings that family home to enjoy and flourish in. Advising and selling the home that has a lifetime of memories wrapped up in is of paramount importance.

Reading between the lines of what one wants and what one needs. Guiding that family or person to achieve their goal.

Negotiate thru-out the journey from offer to closing.   Really sensing and seeing the little details.  This is why Real Estate is my Full-Time Occupation. Has been since 1986.  Realtors come and go, we are here to serve our family of past, present, and future clients.

I have been helping friends with their real estate needs in the State of Utah since 1986.  We love when past clients come back to us, it’s a warm reunion and refreshed friendship. We Sincerely Value New Business Just Like A Referral.  Support Local Businesses. We are a local independent real estate brokerage, committed to providing outstanding service and value to buyers and sellers.  We are known and have a reputation for developing quality working relationships with our clientele.  Utah Realty is excited to have developed beneficial relationships with lenders, inspectors, contractors, and a wide range of housing professionals.  Real Estate Transaction is one of the topmost important transactions one makes in their life. Our team of professionals is here to assist you.  It is often life-changing and should not be left in the hands of amateur or part-time agents. When I go to the closing with my clients I almost always leave with a huge from them. Yes, the guys too! That’s my why.

If I could give Marty a 10 I would but google only allows a 5. We were first time buyers and were very nervous in buying our first home not thinking we’d have much of a chance or the financial capability. Marty went above and beyond the call of duty and helped us every step of the way, from choosing the best loan to driving us out several hours away to take a look at properties we were interested in. He even helped us for several hours to trim up the trees and branches that broke off and covered the property we had just purchased from a snow storm that hit right as we closed on the property. Marty is more dedicated to helping others than anyone else I know of and it was the greatest experience to work with him and learn from him. If you are considering buying or selling a home I can assure you are in great hands. There is no one better that I know of that can and will do as much as Marty has. Thank you Marty for everything.

My commercial real estate was complicated and unique. Laurie and Marty went beyond any expectations to successfully market and sell the property. Their experience, connections within the community, and excellent reputation is priceless.

Marty really knows his stuff. I’ve had him represent me as both a buyer and a seller, and I feel like I’ve got a real pro in my corner every time. He makes the process of buying and selling smooth and easy, and has a real handle on what the market’s doing. That way, you can feel confident you’re getting the best deal and taking action at the right time. His expertise and many years of experience are well worth the fee.

Emily Costner

Very professional. We greatly appreciated the care in the photos that made our home look spectacular! The selling process was quick and easy.

House hunting was practically a full time job. We were out looking at houses almost every single day. The market is so hot we lost 6 offers. He kept our spirits up and never wavered on quality.

His expertise was sooo valuable. He was really looking out for us. If we walked a house and it was cute but would have hidden problems he spotted them and guided us away from it.

We’re now in an adorable house that was exactly what we needed.

Marty has represented us for years and is an exceptional agent. In addition to his many decades in residential real estate, he also is an experienced luxury, custom home builder. His knowledge of the quality(or lack thereof) of the craftmanship of a home is invaluable. He sees things that even the inspectors may miss. He is thorough, responsive through the entire process, and skilled at negotiation. We certainly recommend him without hesitation

Dwight Christie

Marty sat down with my and wife and me to explain his process of helping first time home buyers. He took the time with us as we are interested in helping our kids. Marty is very professional and knows the real estate market better than anyone that we have talked to in the past. We will definitely be recommending Marty to help our daughter and her husband to get into their first home.

Daniel Garner

Marty and his team are some of the most knowledgeable and caring people I know. I definitely would recommend his services to anyone!

Marty and Laurie are veterans in Utah’s real estate market. They understand property valuations in various market conditions. They are adept at finding solutions for the trickiest challenges of buying or selling a home. Marty and Laurie successfully sold three properties for our family. I highly recommend them for your real estate transaction.

Marty Gale is amazing to work with. He was able to work miracles for us in order to sell our condo. He goes above and beyond what a realtor is required to do because he becomes invested in his clients. He actually cares about who he is representing. His network of lenders and other people in the industry makes for a seamless process.


We also used him to buy our new home. We had an extremely short time frame and he was able to get us closed on our new home in record time before we went on vacation. He knew we would be worried about the security of our home while we were gone and he offered to keep a very close eye on it to put our minds at ease. He did all this after we had closed on our home and technically his “job” had ended. I can’t recommend him enough! Thank you Marty!!!

Marty is exceptionally professional to work with. He is very knowledgeable in the field of real estate and construction. I was very impressed how he made me feel through the whole transaction of the sale, even during the midst of Covid-19. I highly recommended Marty!

This is the second time using Marty Gale. He is very knowledgeable and has a keen sense of reading people, especially in negotiating. His advice has never failed. The second time using him had some unique hurdles, especially because it had been a rental property. His advice and willingness to help make the sale happen were above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend him and Laurie for selling or buying. Thanks to the Gale team!

Marty was great and had worked hard to sale . I would use Marty again to buy or sale. Marty is a 12 star realtor.

Trevan Thomas

I recently bought my first home with my fiancee and Marty was incredibly helpful. I had no idea how complicated the process of buying a home would be. We certainly could not have done it without Marty’s help. He is experienced and used his connections with a variety of people to make the process as quick and easy as possible. I definitely recommend contacting him if you’re in the market for a new home.

Coulter Baldes

We’ve been through war with this guy and he stood by us the entire time. He always had time for us, and was always going above and beyond behind the scenes for us. His suggestions were awesome and people he works with we’re also fantastic. Can’t speak enough of how much this guy helped us.

Mariah Mills

 

Marty was great to work with. Recently my fiance and I were looking for a house, and Marty was recommended to us by my mother. She worked with Marty 30+ years ago when my parents bought their house. I had no idea all that went into buying a house, but thankfully we had Marty there to help walk us through it. He was great at using his connections to help us get our house. I would recommend Marty to anyone looking to buy a house.

Cynthia Sayers

 

They are the most caring, educated, patient agents and go the extra mile to be sure you understand and are in the loop from begining to end. You can’t go go wrong with Marty and Laurie Gale, they are a blessing.

Samantha Cook

Marty Gale is the best! He is a master negotiator! You can’t go wrong with him. I highly recommend him and would recommend him to anyone I know.

 

Brandon Christensen

 I’m a loan officer who was working with Marty and Laurie to help a great family get into a home. No matter how many issues came up in the loan, they would stop whatever they were doing to make sure the issue got taken care of. They were absolutely instrumental in getting the loan closed and I truly do believe that most other realtors would have fallen short. Between their experience and dedication to the families they help, I don’t think that you could find a better realtor to get you into a home. I highly recommend them to anybody who’s looking to buy a home. They will get you both the best deal and experience possible.

Marty Gale at Utah Real Estate was fantastic to work with! He helped us both with the sale of our home as well as the purchase of a new one. I loved that he got feedback forms on the showings so we could get an idea of what potential buyers thought of our home. He was eventually able to negotiate a very strong offer and even got us above the asking price. On our purchase, he showed us countless properties and provided insight because of his professional background. For the home we purchased, it was in a very hot area and he made sure we were first at the open house. He also HAND DELIVERED our carefully written offer so that we would stand out against other offers. I would highly recommend Marty to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Gilbert Bruce

Both Marty and Lori were fantastic to work with. They went the extra mile during one of the toughest winters in the Midway area to produce a great sale of our residence. Never a complaint to travel to Midway for open houses and potential buyers. They’re the best!

Thomas Alley

Marty is the hardest working and most helpful real estate agent I have met. I have gone through 4 cycles of buying and selling homes in my life and Marty was simply the best. Marty recently helped us sell a house and he guided us every step of the way, providing sound advice from his lifetime of experience. I highly recommend Marty.

DeWayne Brundage

We loved working with Marty Gale! He gave us so many tips on how to stage our home to sell, we followed his advice and sold it quickly. He helped us find our new home and closed on both at the same time. It was a stressful time but he made the process so much easier. I would highly recommend Marty and Laurie Gale to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. They have years of experience and it really shows. Thank you Marty and Laurie for all your help and for helping us keep our sanity through this process!

Doc Carmel Ferreira

 
Laurie was a delight to have had when I was looking for a commercial space. She was so patient with helping me find spaces that fit my criteria but even more grateful for he knowledge on helping understand some of the complicated lease agreements I was presented with. In the end, she helped me find the perfect space and along that journey I made an incredible friend from that time. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME!!!!

Marty walked me through the entire home buying process, answered all my questions, and advised on the best courses of action while allowing me autonomy. His breadth and depth of knowledge in the industry is unparalleled, rarely did he not know the answer to a concern I had. I could tell he wasn’t just a salesman but a person invested in my family and I’s well-being. HIGHLY recommend, will use again.
