Serving your real estate needs in two of the most beautiful locations of Utah, the Hurricane Valley of Southwest UT and the Wasatch Back/Heber Valley of Northern UT.
The beautiful Hurricane Valley of Southern Utah is a perfect hub to visit a number of the magnificent National Parks of this beautiful state, including Zion (19 miles away), Bryce Canyon (110 miles away) and Cedar Breaks (58 miles away). It is also close to Lake Powell and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Only 18 miles from St. George UT, the Hurricane Valley is close enough to enjoy the shopping, restaurants, medical facilities and airport minutes away, but maintains a small town quieter feel. The towns of LaVerkin, Toquerville and Leeds are only a few miles from the town of Hurricane itself and provide more rural settings.
Hurricane boasts two State Parks, Sand Hollow and Quail Creek. At Sand Hollow you can enjoy varied activities including fishing, boating, water sports, scuba diving and 4-wheeling at one of the best sand dune areas in the State. For skiers, Brian Head Ski Resort is only 75 miles away. For mountain bikers, it is a perfect destination with many trails in Gooseberry Mesa nearby.
In close-by St. George there are two other State Parks, Snow Canyon and Gunlock. If an occasional visit to a casino is wanted, Mesquite is 45 minutes south of Hurricane and Las Vegas only 2 hours.
For a desert environment with gorgeous red-rock and Pine Valley Mountain views, the Hurricane Valley has it all. There are four distinct seasons here, but it does not get as cold as most areas of Northern Utah in the winter. Therefore, it is an outdoor recreation paradise.
The "Wasatch Back" is a region in the Rocky Mountains of Utah that includes such cities as Park City, Kamas, Heber City, and Midway directly east of Salt Lake City. It was also home to the 2002 Winter Olympics. This area has experienced rapid residential growth through the 1990's and continuing into the 2000's with real estate sales soaring recently. People have moved here looking to escape the congestion and pollution of the Wasatch Front as well as to enjoy the region's many recreational opportunities, such as skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, golf, boating, fishing and horseback riding. Park City is the site of numerous concerts and festivals, including the world-famous Sundance Film Festival. Midway is famous for its Swiss Days event during the summer months. It is a truly gorgeous area with much diversity in real estate including luxury estates, ranches, homes, resort condos, townhomes and much more.
