Background & Experience
Michael Swan is an experienced, knowledgeable, and driven Realtor® with Summit Sotheby’s International Realty in Park City, Utah and a Senior Luxury Property Consultant on the Promontory Club sales team. Originally hailing from the Northeast, Michael was born and raised in New England. His passion for skiing and a strong desire to experience new places and different locales brought him to the ski slopes of Park City in 1998, where he quickly fell in love with Utah’s mountains and active lifestyle.
Prior to real estate, Michael attended Tilton Prep in New Hampshire and Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. After moving to Park City in ’98, Michael split his early years working in Landscape Design and Construction with his winter seasons spent on the mountain coaching ski racing and giving private lessons. In 2000, Michael made the successful transition to fractional real estate development working with Marriott at both Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons Resort, which have since merged. With his knowledge and past experience in new construction, along with his innate sensibilities in design, Michael soon became one of their top-producing sales agents. These endeavors would ultimately lead him to Promontory Club, a multi-generational luxury mountain community offering custom-built modern homes as well as land on which to build your own personal retreat.
Michael joined Promontory Club and Summit Sotheby’s International Realty in 2013 and has since successfully assisted dozens of families and individuals on their journey to find the perfect ski, golf, or overall mountain retreat. The success Michael has achieved after a decade in the industry can be attributed to not only his knowledge of Park City’s community base and its fast-paced and unique resort/vacation market, but also to the strategic approach he brings to every transaction. Whether his clients are looking for an investment or vacation property, purchasing land to build, or selling their current home, Michael’s clients appreciate his genuine, relaxed style of negotiating and selling, and trust that he will represent their best interests throughout the transaction.
With an impressive $250M+ in career volume today, Michael attributes his success to being a strategic planner and an intellectual partner and real estate guide to his clients and colleagues, managing all the moving parts of each transaction to ensure that the final result exceeds his clients’ expectations. Backed by the power and global reach of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, Michael is fully supported by Utah’s only brokerage with a full-time, in-house advertising and marketing agency. In partnering with a professional brokerage like Summit Sotheby’s International Realty that is known for a high level of excellence, Michael ensures that his clients experience the same and are able to achieve their dream luxury mountain estate and lifestyle with the support of a global brand.
In 2016, Michael and his wife Jenna built a home in the picturesque mountain enclave of Midway, just ten miles south of Park City. They live there with their six-year-old son Atlas and (soon to be) three-year-old daughter Everette, along with a beloved Rottweiler mix, Bradee. When he’s not working to elevate his real estate game, Michael enjoys playing hockey, skiing and golfing, playing with his children and sneaking in the rare date night with his wife. Having visited all but four U.S. states, Michael is looking forward to visiting Alaska in the coming years and continuing to dominate Park City’s luxury real estate market to help his clients, family and friends’ Park City property dreams come to life.
