Our Philosophy

“Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.”

– Oliver Wendall Holmes, Sr

At Niche Homes we understand that buying and selling a home is more than a transaction. It is an emotional experience. As such, we see ourselves as curators in this experience finding meaningful and relevant options that fit your life’s narrative. Our specialized focus on the Wasatch Front market allows us to match buyers and sellers in pre-listings and off-market sales. Our thoughtful and trusted team of designers, attorneys, marketers, lenders and licensed agents deliver on the details that befit your goals. In the process, we guarantee you will be treated with the utmost care and professionalism whether you are buying or building your first home, your dream home, or looking to downsize.

Our Services

Buying a home along the Wasatch Front has never been more competitive. Inventory is down 68% statewide, days on market is down 40%, median sales price is up 17% and sellers are getting 99.9% of list price. Don’t make the mistake of buying a home alone. We are experts in the many fabulous neighborhoods all along the Wasatch Front and have Realtors that know the ins and outs of their communities and relationships with industry players who will take your offer seriously.

We are here to hold you hand through the entire home-buying  or new-build process: help steer you where you want to go and guide you away from obstacles and pitfalls.

STEP ONE: FINANCE

First, and the most daunting step of all, we convert your hopes and dreams into quantitative numbers. Together we work with a team of lenders to come up with your best possible financial solution. Our preferred lenders are known for their low rates and out-of-the-box financing options. We are here to advise and make this leg of the journey as painless as possible.

STEP TWO: FIND AND OFFER

Finding your perfect space is equal parts art and science. On our end, it’s a matter of sorting and sifting through MLS listings, and more importantly discovering the unlisted property we pride ourselves in finding. Sometimes it feels like finding a needle in a haystack, but we relentlessly use all our personal and professional resources to find and secure your ideal property. We also know how to write a competitive offer that is sure to stand out amid multiple offers.

STEP THREE: NEGOTIATE AND CLOSE

Rarely a deal goes off without a hitch. Our experience has made us experts at problem-solving and putting out last-minute fires. Our attention to detail and grit keeps negotiation, closing-cost stress and fees at a minimum. You can trust us to advocate for you, mitigate stress, and do what we need to do to keep you in or get you out of a contract.

Let us help you make the move.

We are Salt Lake’s national and international relocation experts.

There’s selling a home, and then there’s selling a home the Niche Homes Way. We are the only brokerage along the Wasatch Front to offer concierge market-preparation and free-staging services. Our team of designers and contractors evaluate your property, give recommendations for optimizing your home’s value, and then execute with efficiency and an eye for detail. We go above and beyond to get you top-dollar for your home. Our properties sell 41%  faster and for 10-15% more than comparable properties.

Let us guide you through home-selling strategies that account for your stage of life and financial goals. Want to maximize your home value? We can do that. Want to keep this whole process as simple and stress-free as possible? We can do that too.

STRESS-FREE OPTIONS

If stress-free is your top priority, we modify timing and budget expectations. We bring in buyers that will be respectful of the boundaries you have set without staging or other intrusive strategies.

TOP-DOLLAR STRATEGIES

Our in-house designer and maintenance team will review of your home​ ​and recommend ​​ways you can maximize your home’s value. Recommendations could include roof repair, bathroom or kitchen updates, new flooring, landscaping, painting or other fine details. We have a network of trusted tradespeople who can help you execute these changes quickly and efficiently.

FREE STAGING SERVICES

One of the biggest differences between Niche Homes and other realtors is that we provide all-inclusive staging in our commission price. Most realtors will tack the cost of cleaning, window washing, and staging items onto your bill. In our opinion, this isn’t something that a client should pay for, nor manage. You’re already paying us well—it’s our job to work hard for you and earn our money!

We had a very positive experience working with Karly and her team at Niche. We had lived in our home for 17 years and... were finally ready to move on. Karly helped us find the perfect neighborhood and new home for our family. She was patient and caring through the search. She helped us create a competitive and fair offer. After our offer was accepted she coordinated our home inspection and time with the previous owners to go over details we would need to care for our new home. All of this was so helpful for us. Karly then helped us sell our current home. She walked us through every step and made the process flow seamlessly. Her team stagged our home beautifully. Our home sold quickly and we know that was because of Karly, her knowledge of the market and years of experience. We would highly recommend Niche homes to anyone looking to buy or sell. Karly and her team will help you fulfill all your home needs and dreams.read more

Remarkably I haven’t had to work with a realtor to purchase or sell a home in over 20 years. While I don’t have a lot... of experience to compare, I can’t imagine a better experience than working with Karly in selling our home. Every step of the way was painless and smooth. She and her team were very professional and considerate of our needs and desires. The final sale price far exceeded our expectations, in part due to the current market, but also because of the tremendous work and effort Karly and her team put into the presentation and marketing of our property. We had numerous offers to consider and Karly spent a lot of time answering all our questions and concerns, pointing out what we needed to consider in completing the sale. I will certainly seek their services even if it’s another 20 years before I have to work with a realtor again.read more

Karly is a fantastic realtor. Communication was optimal, she listened to our overall interests, and continued to find... homes that met those expectations. Karly was patient with us when we were indecisive, and she was proactive and timely when we needed to be aggressive. She understands the market in SLC well, knows the neighborhoods, and was able to help us better understand the city. We found a home that met each of our needs and we are so excited. Thank you Karly and Niche Homes!read more

We were very fortunate to work with Kristin Kassing in our search for a home. Kristin has excellent experience as a... realtor, and is a real professional. She really took the time to understand our needs, and worked hard to find the right property. She was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the process. She pointed things out that I had not thought of, and was able to answer all my questions. When reports came back, she took the time to explain all items, and gave the resources necessary to help us feel comfortable with the transaction. She worked hand in hand with my loan officer, and all third parties involved. One comment from the seller's agent involved in my purchase was that "the other buyers didn't have a fabulous agent like yours on their side". I think that sums it up. Thanks Kristin for everything you did to make this happen.read more

Our experience with Niche Homes could not have been better. From our first contact, every single aspect of our home... buying adventure was taken care of by a dedicated and responsive team. We had Kerry Harding as our assigned realtor and her work was amazing to say the least. We give her full credit for educating and leading us in the process of finding a beautiful place to live in Utah. You can't go wrong with Niche Homes. Thank you Kerry, Karly, and Suzanne.read more

Niche Homes went above and beyond with the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home. It is important to know... that your real estate agent has your best interests in mind, and we definitely got that with our agent, Kristin Kassing. She paid keen attention to our timeline and the deadlines we needed to meet. We were kept informed about everything throughout the entire process. We highly recommend the Niche Homes team for all of your real estate needs.read more

My husband and I had a great experience working with the entire Niche Homes team. We moved to Utah from out of state,... making the buying process a little more difficult.

We highly recommend Niche Homes and Karly Nielsen to anyone looking for a GREAT realtor and a GREAT selling experience.... We chose to list our home with Karly because she lived in the neighborhood; led a small, tightly focused group of professionals; had a great reputation; and was a joy to work with. She exceeded our high expectations by delivering a very well managed sales process, with a very good support team (including several contractors to help us with pre-listing repairs), and a final selling price that was well above our listing price. She made what could have been a stressful process a friendly and very enjoyable one. Thank you, Karly!read more

We were lucky to find Karly and instantly knew she was the right person for us. She was not only incredibly... knowledgeable and kind, she was flexible and simply made everything easy. All of the houses we wanted to see and the dates we wanted to see them, she was able to make it happen! I expected the process to be stressful and that I would really have to overextend myself but Karly made it smooth and was really never pushy about anything, which was a total shock. I would 100% recommend Karly and her team. I have full confidence she can find you your perfect home like she did with us. Thanks Karly!read more
