Hilary is a third-generation real estate professional with a deep love for residential real estate. She became familiar with the industry at a young age in her hometown of Palo Alto, California and moved to Salt Lake in her twenties where she earned a BA in English from the University of Utah.

Since graduating, she has pursued a career in editing and freelance writing and most recently held the position of marketing director for Parade Craze, a Parade of Homes affiliate. Her very prominent artistic side has also led her to work as a watercolor artist and actor. She has represented businesses such as doTERRA,, Cricut, and Mercedes.

As a licensed Realtor, Hilary’s instinct for aesthetic potential allows her to visualize the optimal beauty of a home and eagerly assist in making that potential a reality. This mother of three loves to get outdoors with her family, sing with her women’s ensemble, Incanta, and is always looking for a good excuse to throw a party. She especially cherishes frequent visits to her hometown and other favorite place in the world, California’s Bay Area.

My Neighborhood

Highland Park has gorgeous mountain views, lovely quaint neighborhoods, a convenient central location, and unique shopping and dining. Tucked into its cozy tree-lined streets are some of the prettiest homes around— a conglomeration of architectural styles that, while unique, are unified in charm. Minutes from anywhere—downtown Salt Lake, the University of Utah, and of course, enough skiing and hiking to satisfy the most enthusiastic adventurer.
