Draper, Utah United States
Kerry Oman is recognized as one of the most successful luxury real estate agents along the Wasatch Front. He has sold some of the most expensive homes outside of the Park City area, including a record-setting sale in Provo Canyon that was listed for $14,900,000 and one in Holladay that was listed for $8,200,000. He has a track record of consistently closing properties priced over a million dollars. Kerry specializes in selling luxury homes in Utah County, Salt Lake County, and the Park City markets.
Kerry is a native of the Springville and Mapleton, Utah communities. After graduating from high school, he served a mission for the LDS Church in London, England. Upon returning home, and after a season of playing football at BYU and marrying his wife Dianne, Kerry decided to focus on academics, while also starting a career in real estate in 1994.
Academics soon won out, as Kerry developed a love for history, particularly the history of the American West and the American Indians. This love took him to graduate school at Brigham Young University and later Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, where he earned his PhD. From 2000-2004, Kerry served as a consultant for the Oneida Indians of New York and for two law firms in New York City and Washington, D.C., regarding litigation over Indian land claims issues.
In 2005, after teaching for two years at the University of Utah, Kerry decided to return to real estate. Since that time, he has not only experienced tremendous success, but he has formed lasting relationships with his clients who have come to Utah from across the United States and overseas. For a number of years he ran his own company and in 2013 he made the decision to join Summit Sotheby's International Realty where he has become one of the company's top producing agents.
Kerry has four children and enjoys everything about them. He is an award-winning author, having published articles on early American exploration, the mountain men, and American Indian history. He also loves sports and landscape photography. In his spare time, he can often be found hiking around the mountains of Utah with his camera.
