Decades of Professional Experience

When it comes to real estate broker credentials, Mike Wentworth has raised the bar. With over 10 years experience in Telluride real estate, and over 25 years experience as a lawyer in Houston and Telluride, Mike is a dedicated and professional real estate broker who specializes in helping others buy and sell in the beautiful Telluride area.

For buyers, we use our experience in law and real estate to search for and investigate properties that interest our buyer clients. Then our experience in contracts enables us to present and negotiate offers to our clients’ advantage. Finally, we conduct thorough “due diligence” investigation of the contracted property, either with our buyer’s lawyer or on our own, but always in compliance with the Colorado Bar Association’s ethical guidelines.

For sellers, we analyze market trends in an effort to achieve a sale for the best price and within an amount of time consistent with the seller clients’ wishes. After listing a property, we produce outstanding marketing materials on paper, CDs, and on our website, all in an effort to maximize exposure of the property to prospective, qualified buyers.  

We would be happy to help if you’re dreaming of a spectacular golf course home, a cozy slopeside getaway, a charming home in town, or anything in-between. Or if you’re interested in selling your property in the Telluride region, or simply wondering what it may be worth, please contact Mike.

Captivated with Telluride, Steve and his wife Janie, sold their New York businesses and moved to Telluride, where Steve put his lifetime of experience to good use.
