What is hot in Summit County Real Estate?  Everything, but some sectors are burning especially bright.

There are reasons we in Summit County are used to being featured in the media  from early snowfalls being mentioned during NFL broadcasts to young Olympians making the late night talk show rounds, and heck, even being a very early mover in the push to decriminalize and then recreationally legalize marijuana.  Let’s just say Summit County is not a stranger to a little national attention.

But this recent round of notable news was strange enough to make Summit a cheeky punch line on Saturday Night Live.  A man was witnessed chasing a moose onto a median and then photographed by a passerby on Frisco Main Street. Chasing. A. Moose.

Moose in Frisco

Moose weigh between 800 and 1,200 pounds, can be six feet tall at the shoulder and can be aggressive. They can run at 35…
