Exit Realty hires new agent

With over 35 years of experience selling luxury, primary and vacation homes, Exit Realty Lifestyles hired Bill Standley as a new agent in their Park City office.

Standley’s career started in Southhampton, Long Island, New York as an owner/broker of Creative Marketing Real Estate. In 1989 the company was sold in order to relocate to Florida.

Following 18 years in real estate management and sales, in which he was consistently ranked in the top 50 out of over 1000 agents, Standley made his first tour of Heber Valley and the Park City area. He said it was love at first sight.

"I enjoyed the lifestyle and the peace and quiet," he said. "Soon thereafter, my plans to move fell into place."

Mountain America one of Utah’s best employers

Mountain America Credit Union was recently recognized as one of the best companies to work for in Utah.

Mountain America was one of five large companies (more than 500 employees) chosen by the Utah Department of Workforce Services as one of the best companies to work for in Utah. More than 100 companies were nominated, with 23 making it to the finals, but only 13 were chosen as the best companies to work for. Those were divided into three categories according to size. The winners were honored at an awards luncheon where Lieutenant Governor Gary R. Herbert presented the winners with their awards.

The Review Committee judged each nominee on workplace best practices, employee questionnaires, letter from the CEO explaining his/her philosophy on workplace excellence and an onsite visit. For eight years the Department of Workforce Services has been recognizing companies who offer a great work/life balance corporate culture.
