Lisa Hyte
Kelly Right Real Estate
About Lisa

I found my passion in life when I became a Realtor. I feel like every life experience I’ve had has been a perfect stepping stone in preparation for my career in real estate. As I have moved through different positions, experiences and industries throughout my life, I have gathered a plethora of skills and abilities, all of which I apply to my real estate career today. I’m a home-grown Salt Lake City girl but have had the fortune of working and living in several countries. Gaining and gathering education, experiences, and friends around the world has given me a love and appreciation for other cultures and diversity. Outside of work, I enjoy anything outdoors including skiing, hiking, and working in my vegetable and flower gardens. I love nature and a day doesn’t go by that I don’t take a few moments to notice and appreciate the beauty of my surroundings. I also love playing the piano and reading. Last but not least, I have a huge passion for animals and a lot of my volunteer efforts go to helping out animals in need. My definition of success is not how many transactions I do, but how many of my clients would use me again and refer me to their friends and families.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Salt Lake City?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Salt Lake City?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Salt Lake City is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
