More From Katie Bald

Happy Clients | Let’s Review…

We recently gave you the scoop on how we’re wholly local. We spoke on how we were started, from the ground up, right here in SLC (which explains why we simply can’t shut up about her). We chatted about how we’re a still-growing locally-owned


Allies Dinner | Early Bird Discount!

It’s 2016, people. You’d think a few hundred years after those founding fathers declared “all men are created equal” we wouldn’t still be splitting hairs about exactly which of us they meant. We’ll give you a hint: it’s literally everybody, and the fine folks


On A Street | A Stroll Inside…

It’s remarkable, really. The number of times we stumble upon unique, breathtaking, and completely praiseworthy homes in our own humble, salty streets is pretty staggering. But really, it isn’t. Because there are so many unique, breathtaking, and completely praiseworthy people in this town, it’s


Can You See Us? (We’re Local.)

Judging by our affinity for (and borderline obsession with) the homes, ‘hoods, and beautiful folks of Salt Lake City, you could probably tell that we’re a bit partial to her. And that’s because, as we’ve mentioned a time or two before, we’re a locally-owned


List Now | Fall In Love

If you’ve been in the market for a home over the last few months, you can attest to the fact that homes are flying off the shelves in a sort of frenzy that would put the Tickle Me Elmo craze of ’96 to shame.


CHC HQ | Visiting Hours

We’re just down the street, you know. Though obviously we don’t know the exact address of everyone that’s reading this story (only those whom we’ve helped find their space), we’re still going to assume that if you’re living in SLC, we’re just down the


Twilight Concert Series | Beatz the Heat

By now, anyone that still thinks the SLC arts and culture scene is small potatoes clearly isn’t paying attention. There’s certainly a lot to shout about, and if you’ve any doubt, simply peruse the pages of this website for evidence of the tastiest variety.


Craft Lake City | D.I.Y Not?

Story by Blair Porter This is a good little town, y’all. Not only is it chock full of gob-smacking natural beauty, but it’s full of good people doing good things–and we’re not the only ones that are noticing. The snow is great and all,


Damn These Heels! | Positive Platform

For the last thirteen years, the Salt Lake City Damn These Heels! LGBT Film Festival–“a forum in which LGBT issues, ideas, hopes, dream, and art are explored through film and discussion”–has heel-toe-heel-toed their way into our big, gay hearts. We’ve spoken on the salty,


Oakhill Drive | A Step Inside

Homes like this one are a rare thing, indeed. For one, everything about it–from the floors to the furniture to the owner himself–is completely original. Yessir, as we mentioned in the listing write up for this home, the space was designed by renowned architect


HRC | A Fair Shake

Year after year, gala in and gala out, we are consistently blown away by and brimming with love for the fine folks of the Human Rights Campaign. Every year, the HRC rallies the troops in the name of raising funds and raising awareness for


Bike Prom | Bespoke

If Pretty in Pink, Footloose, or Back to the Future taught us anything, it’s that Prom is a magical night. It’s a night of curfews and corsages and spontaneously bursting into synchronized dance. It’s a night where true love is professed and hatchets are
