Joel Carson Top Agent in Salt Lake City, Utah

My service in the U.S. Navy prepared me to fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming one of Utah's top Realtors. Through service to my country I learned focus, discipline, respect and a profound work ethic. Today, I am an award-winning real estate professional ranked No. 1 in Utah by REAL Trends Inc. and Newsweek Magazine.

I have resided in the Salt Lake Valley my entire life. As a real estate professional with more than 30 years experience, my expertise is unmatched in Utah. I use my knowledge and experience to provide a second-to-none service for my clients. I am regularly nominated for local awards and in 2020, I was voted the Top Utah Real Estate Agent in Salt Lake City by residents of the Salt Lake Valley.

What We Stand For


I’ve built a legacy of honesty and integrity over 30 years serving the Salt Lake City area with real estate services. My name is well known locally in association with these principles.


If you read what people say about me online, you will find a common theme: My team members and I are always there for our clients. We are always ready and willing to “drop everything” to assist our clients’ most immediate needs.


Great communication and openness give our team room to express ideas and the ability to pivot and evolve in an ever-changing environment.


I am heavily involved in protecting property rights in Utah. I contribute tens of thousands of dollars annually to our political survival fund that protects homeowners’ property rights.

Clients Come First

Regardless of the price range.... Buyers enjoy our full attention

I pride myself on maintaining a thorough understanding of the market. I lead by example and the sharp agents on my team follow my lead. They continually keep their fingers on the pulse of Utah’s housing market. I show hundreds of homes each month so it is entirely possible I have already toured the home that is perfect for a specific buyer. Each of my agents are motivated movers familiar with designated geographic areas of specialty. As buyers’ representatives we are happy to show a client as many homes as necessary to find the right fit. Our team members are responsive and knowledgeable. Utah Real Estate Agents maintain wide spheres of influence and have the connections required to help buyers find the best services available in support industries such as lending, inspecting, insurance, maintenance, title management and more.

We strive to make the home selling process seem effortless with a... Completely TURN-KEY SELLER SERVICE

My sellers’ program includes:

  • a professional interior designer on staff to stage our sellers’ homes with the utmost style
  • a full-time skilled handyman, available for minor home repairs. 
  • a professional home photographer (one of the best in the state) who ensures that the photos we present to the public are nothing less than stunning 
  • a professional writer is on staff to write our client’s property descriptions in a compelling manner
  • a full-time marketing specialist to make sure clients’ homes get noticed
  • an experienced full-time listing coordinator and transaction coordinator to walk clients through every step of the selling process with clear and timely communication

In Partnership with Zillow

I have been in partnership with Zillow more than 10 years and have assisted hundreds of people in finding homes who have come to us through Zillow.com.

Feedback from clients referred by Zillow has ranked me among the top 10% of Zillow Premier Agents and I’ve been awarded with the “Best of Zillow” designation.

Over the years, I have developed systems that allow my team to follow up with leads within moments of the first interaction. My client care team goes to great lengths to ensure showings are available at the buyer’s earliest convenience. In fact, I have established a process which allows me to show a property within 60 minutes if buyers so choose (based on seller availability).
