About Tristan

Tristan's 'Blue Steel' SelfieHi there, I’m Tristan, and I’m your favorite Realtor® in Salt Lake City!

In real estate, few things are as frustrating as low-quality agents. Consumers deserve an agent who understands what’s happening in the market and can simply and effectively explain to them how it affects them. They need an agent who can guide them through some of the most important decisions they’ll ever make. This is the kind of real estate agent Tristan plans to be for you.

Tristan is a Real Estate Professional who joined the Salt Lake Board of Realtors in March 2016. He brings a decade of retail sales and business operations experience to the table, and his clients love his no-pressure solutions-driven approach to home buying and selling.

 “A lot of Real Estate Agents are salesmen first. I’m a consultant. It’s the biggest purchase my clients have ever made and they deserve a knowledgeable and compassionate agent in their corner.”

As of July 1, 2016, Tristan’s team has sold over $6.5 Million in homes throughout Utah.

If you’re ready to buy a home or if you’re not sure you’d qualify and would like help drafting a plan towards homeownership, give Tristan a call directly at 801-390-8423.

I was born and raised in the rural Utah township of Mt. Pleasant (and I mean rural… like no traffic lights… no Walmart… there ain’t no club so let’s just chill on this bridge rural!), the youngest of seven children born to a retired Jack-and-Jill-of-all-trades**. I was raised a non-congregating member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (you know– the Mormons), and quickly found myself ostracized from a majority of my peers, most of whom had the opportunity to meet once a week at church. My family drank coffee, and I began drinking it when I was five. My family worked and shopped on Sunday, and that always suited me just fine. Needless to say I was always an outcast in school, and that suited me just fine, too.

Tristan - Age 5After dropping out of school in the 8th grade, I turned to my family tradition of harvesting sagebrush to earn enough money to buy my first computer. I spent many hours a day studying various subjects in an manner that suited me, until finally I decided to move to the big city (Salt Lake City, UT) to attend Weber State University.

Aside from being the first in my family to attend college, at Weber State University, I received my General Education Development Certificate (the ‘Good Enough Degree’) and a certification in Business Technologies while pursuing my degrees in Business Administration and Industrial Psychology. I’m pretty proud that I achieved this before my class graduated High School. As of September 2015, I’ve received my Black Belt Lean Six Sigma certification from Brigham Young University (it was an off campus project), graduated with honors from the Utah College of Massage Therapy’s Massage Therapist Program, and I independently pursue knowledge through books and online classes.

As far as work I have been an Operations Manager for a regional communications company (retail) with 40+ locations in six states for over a decade. I’ve also worked as a Parking Manager at the Salt Lake Hilton, and an independent consultant for business, marketing, and graphic design. I’ve recently been ordained by the Universal Life Church and appointed a Notary Public by the office of the Lieutenant Governor of the State of Utah. I’m currently (and very slowly) growing my Private Practice for Massage Therapy and pursuing additional (unrelated) licensure.
