License #: 9158511-SA00 Lara Valdes joins The Agency Park City with a background in business, medicine, and design, bringing a wealth of knowledge and insight to her clients. She loves using her creative skills to find solutions to problems and transform a house into a home. Her past career experience has translated seamlessly into her real estate business, providing her with the ability to connect with people from all backgrounds and to consider every detail throughout the real estate process. A keen negotiator, Lara is an advocate for her clients, always with the ultimate goal of serving in their highest interest.
Growing up in the New York City metropolitan area, Lara attended Hunter College in Manhattan before moving to Los Angeles to attend chiropractic college, later receiving a national certification for chiropractic work with horses and dogs. After 20 years of running a successful chiropractic business and helping others through healthcare coaching, she stepped away from the industry to pursue her passion for real estate in Park City. Fueled by many years of flipping homes, which included renovation and interior design, in addition to building and renovating her own homes, Lara is thrilled to be in the world of real estate and to help clients achieve their dreams.
When she’s not working with clients, she volunteers with her children at local charities such as the Christian Center and National Ability Center. She has also been on the Committee for the Park City Education Foundation. She enjoys spending time in nature and exercising outdoors, whether mountain biking, hiking or stand-up paddle boarding in the summer or downhill skiing, skate skiing or snowshoeing in the winter. A travel enthusiast, she has been to over 25 countries and is fluent in Spanish.
