Though a newer addition to our COLLECTIVE crew, this savvy gal is no stranger to the fast-paced, live-on-the-razor’s edge world of residential real estate. Yes, she’s well-versed in the art of home buying ‘n’ selling, but Chimgee Anderson has lent her tenacity and talents to many a title–realtor, broker, investor, and bookkeeper among them–and we’re thrilled that she’s set up shop amongst our grip of great agents. Chimgee is smart as a whip (the woman is tri-lingual), and I’ve noted her appearance is always impeccable (even when she dons her version of “leisure wear”). Originally from Mongolia, Chimgee has called our salty city home since 2002, and has called our COLLECTIVE home since 2016. Equipped with an open mind and an equally-open heart, she’s ready to hit the pavement and help any and all of you find the space that fills you with those warm and fuzzies. Let’s learn more, shall we?
Describe your perfect home or space. What does it look/feel like? I love a space that has an open, airy feel with plenty of windows and natural light. Eclectically stylish. Layout that is functional for daily living, as well as inviting for entertaining friends and family. Top it off with views of the outdoor landscape, and I’m home.
One thing you absolutely cannot stand: Laziness.
One thing you absolutely, unequivocally LOVE: My family! I also love music, dancing, cooking and yoga.
You’re an agent and associate broker. Tell me more. What lead you to this work? Simply put, I like meeting new people and making new friends. And I love helping my newfound friends find their new home. I have always liked real estate, and I love residential sales; every home has a story!
Give me your take on our little COLLECTIVE. CHC’s holistic approach to real estate is well-suited to our contemporary lifestyles. We have a much more complete and personal approach than the status quo real estate companies of old.
Describe your perfect day. What, exactly, does that look like for you? I relish in the simple things in life. For me, a perfect day would be one in which I wake up to a beautiful warm sunrise and a hot cup of coffee. I cook a delicious breakfast for my family and we enjoy it together outside under the pergola. We sit and talk and laugh and none of us have anywhere to rush off to. Eventually, I’d drag my happy bones to the studio for a couple hours of Bikram yoga. Later, I’d meet friends for drinks and an early dinner at the Copper Onion (if we’re craving an amazing burger), or Takashi (if we’re hankering after some of SLC’s best sushi) or Eva’s (if we long to be transported to Basque country without having to dig up our passports). After filling our bellies with some of Salt Lake’s best local fare, we’d end the evening with a ballet or opera at Capitol Theater.
Favorite read/watch: Man’s Search for Meaning. It is a heart-wrenching story but has a powerful message and a valuable perspective on life. Love stories (I’m a hopeless romantic!). My imagination was engaged with the epic tale in Memoirs of a Geisha when I read the book years ago.
Sometimes, I find myself gripping the railing of a staircase because I’m convinced that, out of nowhere, I’ll just get flung down. Flung. What about you? Any fears, irrational or otherwise? The idea of losing loved ones tortures me.
You could be living anywhere, really. Why SLC? I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Mongolia. It has many geographical similarities to Utah. I love the uniqueness of Utah. We are very fortunate to have the mountains, the desert and easy access to unrivaled recreation.
How do you think we can improve this fantastic little slice of our nation? Where are we lacking? There are many types of people living in the Salt Lake Valley and in nearby growing cities. We could all benefit from practicing more tolerance and being inclusive of all.
