Paul Svendsen paul@cityhomecollective.com 801.441.8563 Paul Svendsen has been a manager of congressional campaigns, a practitioner of law, and a renovator of more than his fair share of homes. As such, he's received our COLLECTIVE stamp of approval as a certified jack of all trades, but it's his unwavering love for all things real estate that plays so fondly on our heartstrings. Over the last decade, Paul has had his hands and head in the resuscitation of five dilapidated buildings and managed more than $20 million in architecture and construction projects. A native to our beautiful and be-gridlined streets, we’d say his role as our in-house, commercial property expert fits him better than the most perfectly-tailored flannel. You'd be well advised to try it on for size.

Park City Perfection | Have a Stay

Life in Your Space | Let’s Brainstorm

Where some might see a tear-down shack in this little number we listed a few weeks ago, we see a plethora of possibilities. In fact, a few of us creative-minded cityhomers recently spent a warm summer evening—refreshing Aperol Spritzes in hand—enjoying the quiet street


All Aboard the Friendship

List Price: Sold Neighborhood: Herriman Property Profile: 9,090 sq. ft. | 4 bed, 4.5 bath Our Opinion: Why do so many of us choose to make Utah home? Lots of reasons. Our strong sense of community, the stunning scenery and countless outdoor recreation opportunities.

Deli-cious | Este Deli

If you’ve cruised by the corner of 1700 South and Main Street recently, you’re probably already aware that big changes are underway in this little part of our salty world. Three (3!) new restaurants have been in the works for several months, and the
