Sarah Burns began her career as a housing and community specialist in 2003. Her desire to become a realtor was based within the belief that home ownership constitutes a basic survival necessity, which acts as the foundation for overall well being in terms of stability and creativity. But Sarah also very much desired to make an impact and connection on a deeper relational level. That opportunity was found in 2008 when Sarah begun to specialize in corporate relocation services. Her clientele not only desired to find the right home, but the right community and relationships. To support these deeper desires Sarah began to host events for her clientele which would support the development of new friendships and community connection – events such as catered holiday parties, women who wine evenings, bi-weekly lunches, and hiking, yoga and snowshoeing events. In addition, in effort to assist her clientele in becoming familiar with their new community, Sarah created a blog and business page – The Salt Lake Local - dedicated to talking all about local business in the greater Salt Lake area and Park City area.
Sarah believes that one’s career should be a product and reflection of their deepest passions and personal value system. It is through living and working from this space wherein we create a career which is not only sustainable and abundant, but meaningful.
