We've been lucky to represent some amazing people over the years as we've helped clients buy and sell properties at Solitude and all throughout Big Cottonwood Canyon. Here are what a few of them had to say about their experience with Lifestyle Properties.
Bought a home in 2018 in Forest Glen, UT 84121
"Damon has the necessary local knowledge to be help buyers navigate the unique experience of purchasing in Big Cottonwood Canyon. We were so happy to have him in our corner when buying. "

"Damon is a pleasure to work with. Having sold four properties in the last two years (three outside Utah), I can say that I wish I had Damon as my realtor on all four. He is responsive, knowledge, and fairly and honestly evaluates offers and recommends good strategy for counter offers (from the buyer's perspective). I have every confidence in his seller-perspective expertise as well. His knowledge and expertise in the local market is excellent, and I would not hesitate to recommend Damon as a #1 choice for a realtor in Utah"

"The key thing to know about damon is that he focuses on big cottonwood canyon and his experience with canyon specific issues runs deep. what do you know about septic and propane tank maintenance, winterizing (or not) cabins, zoning and building in the canyons which are watersheds, vacation rental regulations, internet providers, etc, etc... i didn't know much either - it's very very different than looking for a house to buy in SLC - and having damon there to answer questions was invaluable!!! he helped us find the perfect second home up the canyon and we couldn't be happier."
Sold a home in 2017 in Vista Plat, West Jordan, UT 84088
"Damon was my agent for selling my home and buying my townhouse. He was absolutely wonderful. He had sold a house for my daughter (she had loved working with him) so I had contacted him the previous year with questions about selling but I wasn't ready to sell at that time. He answered all my questions and I never felt pressured to sell. A year later I was ready to sell and contacted him again. He was so knowledgeable about the market and all the processes. My house sold in 5 days and Damon helped me find a townhouse that met all my needs and I loved. He worked with both the buyer and the seller to coordinate the process so I moved out of my house and into my townhouse in one smooth operation. Had lived in my home for 25 years and selling it could have been a stressful experience but Damon helped me feel at ease. He negotiated a good price for the house I was selling and the townhouse I was buying. He looked at issues with the townhouse I was buying that I wouldn't have even thought to address. Damon always responded to my inquires quickly. He made me feel like I was his priority."

"After several years of trying to sell our vacation property, we moved the listing to Damon in early 2017. Within several months, we had an executed contract. The buyers were expertly qualified, Damon and his team were highly professional, and the closing process went smoothly and on-time in September 2017. Thanks Damon!"
Bought a home in 2017 in Forest Glen, UT 84121
"We were first time buyers looking for a very specific type of place, in an area new to us, and with limited time for the process. We could not have done it without Damon! We managed to get our dream cabin, and the process was really easy. Damon's knowledge of the area and the type of place we wanted was invaluable. He walked us through the process step by step, and made sure everything went smoothly. Damon was great to work with and I can not recommend him highly enough. "
Sold a home in 2017
"The selling process went very well, much better than expected. I was glad we had Damon on our side. He helped us get ready to show the property, and once it was listed we had immediate offers. Damon then skillfully worked through the "bidding" process for competing buyers, and made the closing process easy."
Bought a home in 2017 in Forest Glen, UT 84121
"Damon was a pleasure to work with in all respects - professional, responsive, kind, and holds a tremendous amount of knowledge about the Big Cottonwood Canyon area. He helped my husband and I find exactly the property we were looking for, and then guided us through the entire home buying process. For first time home buyers, it was comforting to have him walk us through every step and explain each detail in a way that made us feel comfortable and involved. I would recommend Damon to anyone interested in buying a home in the Cottonwood Canyons, and hope to work with him again in the future!"

"Damon helped us buy and sell our home in Holladay, UT. He is very knowledgeable about the market in our area and was able to negotiate on our behalf in a very fair and honest way. He was always responsive and kept us well informed all the way through. We felt well taken care of and we would recommend him to anyone."
Bought and sold a Multi Family home in 2017 in East Central, Salt Lake City, UT
"Damon is fantastically knowledgeable about the real estate market in and around Salt Lake City. We have had Damon help us through 3 real estate sales and purchases, both in the Salt Lake Valley and at the Solitude Ski Resort. He has helped us greatly. "
Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Sandy, UT
"Damon served as a buy/seller agent (I was the buyer) for me, and did a fantastic job of both representing, and protecting my interests in the property. This was not the easiest transaction with the seller out of town, and my specific time-lines. Additionally, there were numerous issues that arose (typical with cabins up in the mountains) and Damon took care of all of them in a professional and timely manner! I definitely recommend Damon, especially for anything in Big Cottonwood Canyon."

"Damon sold my condo at Solitude incredibly quickly and made everything go smoothly. This was especially important because I'm across the country! Damon went the extra mile, boxing my skis and sending them to me. He's a pleasure to work with and highly recommended. "
Bought and sold a Condo home in 2017 in Salt Lake City, UT
"We originally purchased our Solitude Condo with Damon in 2010 after many years of visiting the canyon and renting places. Now in 2017 we just sold the same condo with Damon. Damon's knowledge of Big Cottonwood Canyon is second to none. His original advice in our purchase and his advice on the sale side was outstanding resulting a the most positive experience we could have imagined in our Solitude investment, both financially and personally."
Bought a Condo home in 2017 in Salt Lake City, UT
"Damon is a pleasure to work with. He helped me sell my first home in SLC over fifteen years ago. He is an expert when it comes to Big Cottonwood Canyon real estate. He helped us identify the perfect two bedroom condo in the Village at Solitude and negotiated an excellent price. Damon’s very responsive, and works with the highest level of professionalism and honesty. I plan to work with Damon on future real estate opportunities. "
"Damon, Thanks so much for for your excellent work the recent sale of my cabin.
We worked closely together; with you understanding that with my thirty years in commercial real estate sales and development, I had high expectations. You’re the consummate pro. Your attention to detail, excellent people skills, and hard work kept a sometimes difficult sale on-track. I can confidently say that you are a member of that elite 3% of brokers. I’ll heartily recommend you in the future."
When we decided to consider selling our cherished cabin, we wanted to have a realtor who knew Big Cottonwood Canyon well. Over the years, Damon has had a consistent presence in this canyon and we were comfortable in getting his expert opinion on value and timing. He soon came through with a wonderful couple that were looking to purchase and we were quickly able to close. Being that we live out of state, we trusted Damon to represent us, and were very pleased with his quality work and professionalism. We recommend him without reservation!
My parents had a dream to build their own cabin in the Silver Fork area of Big Cottonwood Canyon. The cabin slowly took shape over the last 40 years. The cabin never reached final completion. The decision to sell was difficult. Damon took time to understand the sentimental value of the cabin and property as well as the current situation of the sellers. He visited the cabin site several times and carefully guided us to make the necessary improvements to the area for best exposure to potential buyers. We all agreed that the sale may be difficult. We listed the cabin during the first week of August 20165. Through great marketing, Damon quickly found several interested buyers and we were under contract by the first week in September. Damon carefully guided us through the selling process and we closed the first week in October. Damon has continued to give us feedback after the closing and has been professional in all he has done. He couldn't have been any better.
We found Damon almost by accident as we were driving by his office. Our needs were specific to a mountain community and the need to sell a "fixer-upper". Damon impressed us with (1) his proximity to the development where our cabin was located and (2) his knowledge of the type of market we were in. His responsiveness and lack of flare, i.e. down-to-earth drew us in and we signed up on the spot. He was tireless in his efforts to show and market and we completed the sale within the 4 month period we agreed to. Damon also demonstrated complete integrity in representing us as well as respecting the needs of the buyers.
Damon was professional, responsive, available and knowledgeable. I bought a condo at Solitude Mountain Resorts with his able assistance. He answered questions, made time at short notice, communicated clearly with me , provided information and researched my questions. When I returned to my out of state residence, he bridged the distance with phone calls and emails to bring the sale to a conclusion. Since buying the condo, he has remained available to us with helpful information for us as new owners. He is delightful, professional and loves the Big Cottonwood Canyon area himself, so his enthusiasm is genuine.
I listed my upscale luxury penthouse with Damon Lowe & Lifestyle Properties. Damon was very professional, understands top tier marketing, and brought qualified buyers for showings of this unique property. He kept me well informed about interest from prospective buyers, was well prepared when he showed the property, and his impeccable honesty gave me and potential buyers confidence. He sold my fabulous penthouse, and I would not hesitate to recommend Damon Lowe for any real estate transaction.
This is the 2nd house I have bought with Damon. he is just HONEST and its the best feeling knowing you can actually trust someone in this industry and they aren't just out for the sale. I appreciate all of his help, I know if he wasn't involved I probably would have gotten thrown under the bus, He is so HONEST and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE he isn't afraid to confront the lender or other realtors if he doesn't think its fair. If you don't feel comfortable about something he will explain it in terms you will understand, and will be up front if you are making the right decisions. He is truly wonderful at what he does. I know I would have just given up buying this other house if he wasn't there.
Damon was awesome throughout the entire buying experience. His level of professionalism, honesty and more importantly, his ability to understand my needs were a step above any RE agent that I've worked with in the past. On top of this, he was able to negotiate a significant amount of seller concessions. I highly recommend his services and look forward to working with him in the future.
Damon went above and beyond for me during the sale process, kept me informed of all steps and had answers for all my questions. He even loaned me his truck and helped load it to move out. He really more than earned his commission. I will certainly recommend Damon to others in the community.
He is energetic, efficient and also a very nice person. I told him that I felt as well cared for as I do by my own sons. As a widowed senior person I found this to be a very important part of my experience selling my home of 22 years.
Damon is the guy if you're buying or selling real estate in Big Cottonwood Canyon. He did a super job for us and I could not recommend him more highly. Responsive, attentive, informed and professional. Thanks for your help Damon!
Damon helped guide us through the buying process when we weren't even sure what we were looking for! His knowledge of the area and expertise in the local market were extremely helpful. He was consistently available to answer calls and return emails. Damon is also very kind and a pleasure to work with.
Damon knows the area well and the marketplace for the condos at Solitude. Easy guy to work with.
Damon is very knowledgeable, detail oriented and its easy to work with him. Damon is someone you need to seek out when dealing in Real Estate in Big Cottonwood Canyon.
Diligent, dogged, delightful...all words that describe Damon's real estate expertise! He helped us search for and buy a home that fit our needs perfectly, with no surprises along the way. He even repaired the disposal before we signed the contract. We would definitely use Damon again. He knows the area, and deals fairly with both buyer and seller.
I had contacted Damon many times over the years to inquire about properties and gather information about the area that we wanted to be. He was always quick to respond, was very knowledgeable in addressing my questions, and took plenty of time to sufficiently field them all. Finally we found the property that we decided to move on and Damon helped make the process very smooth from beginning to end with no surprises to deal with. Always nice to work with a professional who knows what they need to know and focuses on the needs of their client.
Very easy to work with. We had no problems and truly had fun with the whole process. Fees were reasonable and ended up gettting the property a great value.
Damon represented the seller when we first bought at Solitude in 2001. He maintained contact with us during our time as owners in the village, so it was only natural to enlist his professional support when we decided to sell our property. He exudes a calm confidence and has been great to work with during the entire process. Damon listens, is open to challenges and new ideas, and is very responsive and resourceful. He knows when to persevere with the plan and when it is time to step back and evaluate alternatives. I always sensed we were being guided by a real pro.
Professionalism, market expertise, and dogged perseverance are words I would use to describe Damon Lowe's strengths in helping us sell our property. We were very pleased and would recommend him highly. Damon takes the time to match qualified buyers to appropriate properties, avoiding wasted time for both the buyer and the seller. He is a true professional.
Damon Lowe is extremely knowledgeable about the details of Solitude Village! He was there from the beginning, selling the units as they were built by Intrawest. He is very professional and helped me sell a unit in difficult times. I would recommend him to anyone!
I had my property listed for six months with a competing real estate firm, with no offers and few showings, if any. With Damon Lowe and Lifestyle Properties, we were on the market for less than a few weeks before interest buyers started to come in. One of the most important things for me when I have a property listed for sale is updates and follow-up, and Damon was consistent and timely on both fronts.
Once Damon procured an offer, I felt he represented my interests very fairly during the negotiations, particularly as he had the delicate task of representing both sides in the transaction. All in all, this transaction was smooth and easy and I would highly recommend Damon Lowe and Lifestyle Properties to anyone.
I have worked with Damon Lowe and Lifestyle Properties on two real estate transactions. I live in Los Angeles and felt completely comfortable with Damon's professionalism and competence in helping me purchase and then later sell a property without ever having to leave my home in California. I would not hesitate to recommend him unconditionally and will call him again when I am in the market for Utah real estate.

We have been owners at Solitude since 2001. Damon Lowe has been extremely knowledgeable, professional, and goes the extra mile in providing whatever we ask for. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone that is interested in Utah real estate. If we ever decide to sell our Solitude condo or buy more property, Damon is our man.
Kevin & Ann-Marie Barnes
I have sold and purchased many different properties over the years, and without a doubt I have found that Damon Lowe is "top of the class". His knowledge, hard work, temperament and eye for detail have served his clients well. I have purchased two different properties at Solitude and would never consider using anyone but Damon Lowe.
We were happy with Damon Lowe. He worked hard for us and was very straightforward. Everything went smoothly despite completing most of the transaction from a long distance.
Ed & Steph Streeter
In business, it's easy to manage in the good times, but it takes good managers to succeed when times are difficult. When the going gets tough, the tough get going! We have known Damon Lowe for several years and he has successfully sold property for us in both strong and weak markets. He is tenacious and dedicated and will be there for you at all times.
Keith & Jennifer Dowding
Damon Lowe has been very helpful over the past three years while we have worked to establish a retired life in Utah. He is highly competent in real estate matters, knows the market and is knowledgeable about the entire Salt Lake vicinity. He shares our passion for the joy of outdoor living and seems to be forever available to patiently respond to our inquiries. He will be our first choice when we need an agent to assist in anticipated property exchanges.
David & Muriel Olsen
Damon Lowe is a great realtor. He focuses on your needs as a buyer and puts your interests above the “available inventory”. Damon's service does not end at the closing, either—he is there to assist you afterward. One warning—do not try to ski or snowboard with Damon as he is very skilled and fast on the mountain!"
Having skied most major resorts from Maine to California to British Columbia, I can tell you that Solitude offers some of the best skiing in North America—all within an hour’s drive of the airport. I know of no other place in North America that can make this claim! And after skiing and partying all day on the "GREATEST SNOW ON EARTH", it’s great to go home to...SOLITUDE! Owning property on the resort itself is incredible.
We felt right at home at Solitude! With two children under six years old, we wanted to purchase property at a resort that would eventually allow them to venture out on their own. Solitude's ski school, its mountain and its people are first-class. We plan to make lots of memories as our kids grow up skiing Solitude."
Growing up in the Salt Lake area, we know what a well-kept secret Solitude is. We love our ski in/ski out and hike in/hike out condo with all the comforts of home. It's such a pleasure to spend a day on the slopes, taking a quiet break in the middle of the day for a hot, home-cooked meal at our home with our own cozy fireplace and view of the trees. No fighting traffic up and down the canyon. We are able to enjoy all the pleasures of owning a home in the mountains without any of the maintenance problems or worries of leaving it unattended when we're not there. This place lives up to its name! Rarely will you find a lift line, and the hiking and biking trails are similarly quiet. We've been very comfortable here."

I purchased my property at Solitude because I believe it is an exceptional location for the summer and winter activities I enjoy. The smell of fresh pines on my recent mountain bike ride continues to remind me of Big Cottonwood Canyon's ability to refresh and recharge.

Solitude Mountain Resort offers a wonderful retreat from the crowds that blanket other popular ski areas. I decided to purchase a home at Eagle Springs Lodge because of this and the fact that Solitude has some of the best snow in the country. This is a world class development and resort, which gave me confidence in the quality of the property I was purchasing.

We had many reasons for purchasing at Solitude. It has the greatest snow on earth, it is never as crowded as the other Utah resorts, and it is very accessible—we can be at the resort within 30 minutes of landing at Salt Lake International Airport. Salt Lake is central to several national parks and attractions such as Yellowstone, Arches, Jackson Hole and the Grand Tetons; and Salt Lake City itself has many interesting and historical sites. The people are wonderful. The furnishings at Solitude are top of the line and there is lots of surrounding wildlife in Big Cottonwood Canyon.
We were not thinking about a second home when we happened upon Solitude, but we were immediately struck by Solitude's setting in beautiful Big Cottonwood Canyon and the surrounding mountains. The cozy, intimate village provided us with a feeling we had never experienced at the massive commercial developments we saw at other ski towns we visited. We knew our young children (ages 7 and 10) would enjoy exploring Solitude and discovering the natural areas surrounding the village without us having to worry about them. The uncrowded slopes provide plenty of challenges, yet allow us to ski together as a family. We have also enjoyed exploring the natural beauty of Big Cottonwood Canyon during the summer and are anxious to experience Solitude in the fall. The proximity to a major airport and nearby Salt Lake City is a great bonus. We are pleased that the owners and developers of Solitude share our vision of a quaint, intimate village and appreciate the natural beauty of the area as much as we do."
