What Mitt Romney Left Behind: The People Who Bought His House Tell Their Story

Buying a house is usually an impersonal transaction.  The buyer sees a scrubbed version of the home, artfully “staged,” possibly with a fresh coat of paint and flowers on the table.  Once a purchase price has been negotiated, the buyer and the seller sign legal papers in triplicate, and the new owner gets a set of keys and – if lucky – an extra garage door opener. So, when Hal and Corinne Prewitt decided to buy Mitt and Ann Romney’s Park City, Utah home in spring of 2009, they figured they were in for another paperwork hassle.  What they got, however, was a great house, interesting interactions with the man who’d just lost a bid to be the previous election’s GOP nominee, and some insight into the character of the possible next President.  In fact, their interaction with Romney was so different than what the Prewitts expected, Hal decided to write down his experience in a Google document which has since been downloaded over 100,000 times.

First of all, the Prewitts were impressed – and a little shocked — when Mitt Romney met them at the property on moving day. There were no brokers or anyone there at the house – just the former governor walking around the house to make sure the new owners were comfortable and familiar with their purchase. “He spent as much time as we needed showing us around, answering our questions and explaining how to use and service the home’s equipment,” Hal wrote.  “And when he was done, he gave us his direct contact information should we have problems.

Secondly, the Prewitts were fascinated by the way Gov. Romney – worth, by some calculations, hundreds of millions of dollars – decided to move his things.  Some people hire professional movers to pack their things, others hire them to transport them, and others prefer a do-it-yourself approach.  Gov. Romney fit into the last category.  He went to Home Depot, bought wood, and built the necessary containers to transport his possession from the house.  Then, he asked a friend and some family to help him pack his family photos, mementos, and grandchildren’s toys. Then, they carried his things into a U-Haul, which he drove to his new home in California.

The home, according to the Prewitts, was built with a focus on their family, even though it had “no swimming pool, tennis court or movie theater. There are no maid, butler or nanny quarters. Clearly Ann and Mitt raised their kids. No gold faucets, no fancy silverware. The kitchen was simple and typical of an average three bedroom home, very much like those in which we were raised.”  Because the Prewitts bought much of the home’s contents, they also got to see the way the family really lived in their home: the linens didn’t have the highest thread count, the master bedroom pillows had tags from a discount store, and almost everything — the art, furniture and drapes — were American made.

Plus, there were lots of toys for the grandchildren.  Also, in the Romney’s former mud room, Hal and Corinne found the former governor’s ski gloves with holes in the fingers. Apparently, one of Mitt’s sons had suggested he replace the gloves, but Gov. Romney, whom his sons have described as “frugal” and even “cheap,” thought he could salvage them.  When Hal and Corinne found the gloves, they’d been altered.

“Mitt had gone to the garage tool box and wrapped them with duct tape. Thrifty? Yes, and the repair provided an immediate practical solution rather than traveling to the store to buy a new pair,” Hal wrote.  “His indifference to appearance demonstrated his confidence, true character and priorities. Good qualities, but easily misunderstood because they are quite different from those displayed by many famous people and certainly politicians, who highly protect and prize their appearance.”

In the Romney’s master bedroom, was a prominent painting of Jesus Christ.  “Most Americans know little about Mormonism and we didn’t either,” Hal wrote. “But Mitt Romney clearly had a home of faith and family just like the rest of us.”

“One of the most interesting questions many have asked is, ‘as president will he impose his beliefs on others?’” Hal wrote.  “Many claim that a President Romney would take away rights and impose his beliefs on all Americans.”  However, possibly the most surprising discovery was a small stash of alcohol in the house, which – the Prewitts were told – was for guests only.  Mormonism prohibits drinking alcohol, of course, and the Romneys are teetotalers.  However, they kept a few drinks on hand to be good hosts and make sure their guests felt comfortable. Hal believes this stash shows the Romneys wouldn’t impose their beliefs on others from the White House, because they didn’t even impose their beliefs on others in their own house.

The Prewitts didn’t support Romney in the 2008 election. Neither Republicans nor Democrats, they knew very little about Romney, Utah, or his former Presidential bid when they looked for a winter home.  However, they felt they needed to speak out, because the caricature of Romney on television is such a far cry from the real man who showed him around the house and packed his own boxes that day.

“Mitt Romney… is not aloof or out of touch. He is a man of faith, family and American values. A guy who is well-grounded. It is not beneath him to roll up his shirt-sleeves and get the job done,” Hal wrote.  “The fact that he has allowed this to be kept so very private is a true testament to his character and shows how different he is from many other politicians.”

If Romney wins in November, he’ll be faced with yet another move. Will the new President show up at the White House in a U-Haul? With $16 trillion of national debt, it just might be a move in the right direction.

    Puleez, is there really a thinking adult that believes ”…that a President Romney would take away rights and impose his beliefs on all Americans”? This article seems contrived and hokey. The person who wrote the article ends , ”If Romney wins in November…it just might be a move in the right direction.” To me that sounds unconvinced and uncomvincing.

    • David French

      I guess you didn’t see the Democratic National Convention. The entire convention was a shrieking argument that Mitt was going to violate Americans’ rights — especially the rights of women. The tone — especially from the feminists — was apocalyptic.

        Well said Darin. Examples lets see, constantly apologizes for Americans like hes ashamed, his own wife said “the first time I was proud of my country was when he (Obama) was elected” sounds patriotic. Or how about how Obama takes multiple million dollar tax payer funded vacations but sweeps his relatives living in poverty on the rug. Mitt Romney paid for the food costs for a VA hospital for two years and told the company who delivered the food not to tell anyone. Then while a governor passed a bill to help fund the costs of the hospital. You cannot find a bad story about Mitt Romney you just cant. This is not about politics its about his character.

        Let’s see, there is Fast and Furious, with at least one US law enforcement agent (armed with beanbags when he was killed ) and hundreds of Mexican citizens killed. There’s a 51% increase in the national debt from a man who swore to cut the debt in half in his first term. There’s a group of tax evaders and radicals advising him, including someone who says he didn’t do enough as part of the Weather Underground in the 60′s (bombing the Pentagon wasn’t enough?). There’s the fact that his DOJ refuses to prosecute voter intimidation or hate crimes if the perpetrators aren’t white.

    Obama, or his ghostwriter, may feel the need to plagiarize this story for his third memoir. He need not fear that someone will discover his appropriation of it. His acolytes will assume that the story is true and no one who “matters” will believe that Romney is capable of such deeds.

      Reminds me of an interview with one of the old newsmen, when they had integrity, he quoted President Truman who was leaving the White House after his term was up. He asked the President “what are you going to do now?”. President Truman said “well I’m going to drive Bess home to Missouri.” Then what?, asked the reporter. “Then I’m going to take the suitcases out of the car and take them into the house”.
      Note the “I’m going to drive and I’m going to take the suitcases.

    Most people don’t understand the “rich” class. Most of the millionaires in the country drive used cars and are very thrifty (its partly how they get so rich). It’s only the insta-celebrity hollywood types and rock stars that live ridiculously large… and end up on the “where are they now” shows 10 years later.

  • http://none.com Chris

    This was one of his VACATION homes, so I’m sure they didn’t have shitloads of furniture and stuff to load and unload also the home is frickin huge and the guy who bought it from Romney works in government hisself and is also a millionaire and this purchase was just another vacation home for the guy as well. So real easy to help somebody when it’s a vacation home. Only need a UHaul for vacation items. Not you’re entire house. I met a millionaire stay at home mom a while back whose husband owned several Ace hardware stores. Walgreens bought out their store so they could have the property for over $5 million. She said they had recently bought a brand new house, so they just left the furniture at the old one. She was going to give me her old Christmas tree from the old house they were moving from since mine broke. I was quite impressed by this, since me coming from $50,000 a year salary and talking to a mom who had a husband making tons of money. Since they have so much money, there’s no need to hassle with the move of furniture because they’re just going to buy all new stuff anyway for the brand new house she said. So Romney didn’t really move all this stuff as the article says. Just probably a few items here and there, not the average stuff the average american would have to deal with when moving.. I believe this article is meant to fool you to make him seem like he’s okay. Actually Obama’s Chicago house is much more close to the common American citizen.

    • anchan

      For the record, the Obama’s house in Chicago, is the one built on the double lot purchased in some type of “deal” with the [now convicted felon] Tony Rezco. I don’t think that most Americans got a sweetheart land deal on their lot funded by a convicted felon. Just sayin’. Maybe Americans would like to know more about that deal, but have been stymied by the “most transparent President in recent history.” Ha, ha, ha!

      I believe this house is not the large house that Mitt and Ann sold not too long ago in Deer Valley, Utah. I believe this was a much smaller place in Park City; conveniently located for Mitt’s position with the 2002 Winter Olympics. Still, places up in the ski resorts in Utah are not inexpensive, even when they aren’t large.

    • Kelli

      Sure it is.

    • http://mommabee Lucy Guzman

      You mean his Chicago mansion that Rezco helped him buy?

    • Julia Melchin

      Who cares how big the house was, or how much stuff he took? You missed the entire meaning of the message! Romney is FRUGAL. Why pay someone else to do what you can do for yourself? Something this sitting First Family knows nothing about. If Romney had decided to take everything, he probably would have just done what we all do as Latter-day Saints — We call the Elders’ Quorum (men’s organization of ages 18 – 40+) , and ask for help from all able-bodied, willing volunteers. Romney kindly walked the people through his home and answered questions. Most people leave a mess, and to heck with anyone else coming after them. The message is CHARACTER – Romney has it. The message is that Romney is a man of INTEGRITY (willingness to do what is right, even when no one (media or anyone else) is looking). He will be a President that will lead us into an era of Peace through Strength, Recovery, Respect and Prosperity. We need his talents, sensibility and leadership. Bottom line, WE NEED A GOOD MAN in the WHITE HOUSE. America Needs MITT!

    Odd that for a media creation like Barack Obama, there are no real life stories that have surfaced. Except for his communist mentors, 20 years in the Church of Hate and Reparations, some quality time with America’s home grown terrorists Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn, running with the Choom gang, a real estate deal with a convicted extortionist / obama fundraiser or that Rin Tin Tin was once His Din Din, what do we really know about him?

    Those who wish to disparage our story by attacking us and the home, take comfort we wrote it because of your loud and incorrect statements that are often based on false assumptions. Please consider, each of us never knows what we don’t know.

    Download it at http://www.prewitt.net/story.pdf We are real, the story we told actually happened and once again we are not part of nor was it written or approved by Mitt Romney’s campaign. In 2009, we began telling the story to our friends (more are liberal). It was they who found it valuable; the liberals who helped us write the story and said it should be heard by Democratic, Republican and Independent voters. Our conservative friends were less impressed.

    Yes, we are financially rich, but very different than you apparently imagine. I wish you and every person in our country could, as we have, experience the American dream. Our success comes from building and not taking from others. Being successful and in touch with every American are not mutually exclusive. I started with nothing, oldest of four boys raised mostly by a widowed mother. We are proud of our accomplishments and the fact that I no longer have to sleep in my pickup truck or worry about having money for food. Google my name and read my history.

    The home is beautiful, but far more important and often falsely reported or overlooked are the facts the Romney’s selected a public non-gated neighborhood and actually chose not to build a true luxury estate. The home was built with a focus on his family. There was a bedroom for each child. There are no maid, butler or nanny quarters. Clearly Ann and Mitt raised their kids. No gold faucets, no fancy silverware. No swimming pool, tennis court or movie theater. The kitchen was simple and typical of most homes with kids, very much like those in which we were raised. We chose to remodel the kitchen.

    It is a home noteworthy not for what they built, but more for what they did not and easily could have.

    A few facts not in our story. Some people have claimed Mitt was too cheap to hire movers as the reason he moved himself. Very unlikely he acted to save money or because it was economical. We found no indication of that in his actions or home. While he was working, the garage door became ajar. A simple problem to correct, but he was busy so he called a service company to come fix the door. It is a fact, not only did he load the truck, he drove it to his new home. This was real work and not what most of us would call a “fun” experience. Clearly it was not beneath him to roll up his shirt-sleeves and get the job done. The fact he made these decisions speak directly to his character. Not the stereotypical actions of a millionaire and more importantly not the image most Americans have of Mitt Romney.

    Our story is provided by witnesses delivering facts and not initially his supporters nor anti-Obama. Private details, how he acted out of public view and when not running for office. We distinguish between knowing something (I was there) and being told or reading what somebody else thinks happened. Most negative posts we read here appear to come from people who have never met Mitt Romney, get information from others and have zero direct personal knowledge of the subject they make claims about.

      What’s wrong with being rich? Obama is a millionaire and no one holds that against him. It’s O.K. to have money! This is America not some third world country!

      Hi, Thank you for telling your story. I have met Mitt Romney when I supported him in 08, as well as meeting Ann and several of his sons and wives on the campaign trail (I get the sons all mixed up).
      It is my sense that Mitt Romney is an honorable, humble, brilliant man. America has nothing to lose by electing him, and EVERYTHING to lose by denying Romney a chance to clean up the mess in Washington.
      Here is what an acquaintance of mine writes of the time she lived in Massachusetts under a Governor Romney: “Being a tax paying homeowner in MA before and after Mitt Romney became Gov. I agree!!! He came into a mess. Yes, we had a Republican Gov. before him, but like Crist, was a real Rino!!!! Romney who needless to say was scrutinized by the Kennedy’s, was a man of character and class! To their dismay, They found no skeletons in any closets! He got a great deal accomplished in 4 yrs. He did what Obama promised and never did, He worked across they isle and got compromise where it counted. He balanced a budget, lowered our taxes, had every child speaking English or they could not graduate from HS, he took care of the corruption in the Kennedy project called the big dig, that cost all Americans a fortune!!! I could go on and on!! If he could accomplish this w/truly a far left, liberal legislature just think what he could do in Washington!!! No matter what this man has involved himself in, he always leaves it better than when he started. Regan is my favorite president of my life time but I agree Romney has the potential to surpass his greatness. We must pray, pray without ceasing that he wins or I truly believe we are doomed!”
      Again, thank you Prewitts, for telling your story.

    I appreciate articles like this without bashing either man running in the election. We get enough of that in the media and on facebook. I appreciate that Mitt also takes good care of his family especially as sick as Ann has been with breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. My thoughts and prayers are always with them whether Mitt is our next president or not. President Obama is not the enemy here even though he is made out to be. Things are slow going and Congress is not and does not help. Hopefully if Mitt wins the Presidency then Congress will change their attitude and work with him. This gets so old every election year and it is always good to read a “feel good” story like this. I appreciate the Prewitt’s story and insight into Mitt Romney, the man.

    I have gone from being unafilliated since age 18 to democrat in the last election to libertarian when Ron Paul was running because I became disappointed in Obama. I have done some soul searching and praying and God showed me that my far-left leanings were getting too far away from His ideals. I have re-examined some of my beliefs and why I supported certain causes and realized that I it’s more important to be Biblically correct than politically correct. I am finding that the more I hear from Romney the more I believe he upholds the more of my ideals than does Obama. At one point I was considering sitting this election out because I was so disappointed with the man I helped get elected last time and I was too proud to vote Republican after some of the things I had posted against the party in general and the Romney campaign in particular. I have realized that many men and women have sacrificed their lives to allow me the freedom to not vote if I choose not to do so. At the same time, I would be insulting their sacrifice if I exercise that right. Just because I can doesn’t mean I should. I have decided I’m going to vote for the issues, not for a man or a party and the way it looks, I’ll be voting Republican this year.

      I also have been an “independent” now called “unrolled” since I first voted at age 21. My ballots have always been a combination of “blue and red” as I believe my responsibility was to vote for the “best candidate” who stated they would follow the principals of our founding fathers.

      In ’08, I too got suckered in to the “no more red, no more blue … just the United States” after eight years of GWB. This year, there is NO WAY I will vote to reelect Obama as President due to the economy, promises not kept, etc. etc and now the horrible situation in the middle east. While international conflict is brought to the brink, he finds it more important to campaign for reelection than to attend security briefings, etc.

    Romney is the real deal. I understand that it must be difficult for many people to believe the depth of Mitt’s integrity because it’s an oddity to see in a day and age that slanders without hesitation and is just plain full of pride. Sadly, much of our nation has lost civility as demonstrated in many of the blogs and media. I’m voting for Mitt. I want a ready capable president who has humility coupled with integrity despite the temptations of being self-serving that can come from wealth.

  • Pat from Ohio

    9-14-12 — My friend and I stood in line for 2 1/2 hours on Mon., 9-10-12, in Ontario, Oh., to see Mitt Romney at a rally held at PR Machine Works in Ontario, Oh. Just as we reached the door, we were told that capacity had been reached and no more people could enter. We were very disappointed. We listened outside over a loud speaker. A young man came out about 10 minutes into the governor’s speech and told us not to leave; the governor would be out to address us after he was finished inside. He did exactly that. He hopped up onto a wooden picnic table not six feet from us. When he was done, he walked directly over to me and my friend and greeted us. He was so friendly and hospitable. He had to leave for Chicago, but 20 minutes later he was still making the rounds of the crowd that had waited to see him. I felt he really cared about everyone, even those who had waited outside in the hot sun. His message was right on target. I have seen him on TV since at various rallies, and he gives a different speech each time touching on different areas he will address when elected. He is a humble, high-class man filled with integrity and feelings for others. He will make a great president!

    hes a business man of course hes going to be all accommodating, he knows he’s about to sell the house and get that money. that really doesn’t define him as a good person it just means hes good at business….i don’t believe in either candidate, its like trying to pick the best poison to kill yourself with, it doesn’t matter which you chose because the end result is the same… maybe one just kills your quicker. i cant judge Mitt Romney as a person because i don’t personally know him but i do know that it doesn’t matter who the president is as long as we still have the same congress, senate, and other white house officials, most of them are corrupt or are trying to push their own agendas with no regard for the middle or lower class…its all a shell game, when will you sheepie wake up.

      IThe story is bout Mitt who already sold his house, he didnt have to be nice as the deal was already signed and he ahd nothing to “win” by doing what he did.
      The story is spot on and shows his true character as man who cares.
      How many people leave their personal contact info with the new owner, after they sold the property, and tell them to call if there are any issues.
      Finally a man runs for president that is not in it for “His own agenda” and many fail to recognize it or just plum cant believe there are any such people left that are willing to be in politics.
      Have we already forgotten the Olympics in Salt Lake, well right now our country is in the same condition as the games were before Romney took over and turned them into one of the most successful games ever.
      One thing is for sure, this man will not be blaming others for everything that happens under his watch.

    This site is NOT neutral by any means. This entire thing is propaganda, plain and simple. Mitt Romney’s politics as well as his talking down to people not in his income bracket speak for themselves. Get a clue!
