I was born and raised in Colorado, and my passion for the outdoors led me to Telluride in 1997. I hold a Master’s degree in Colorado water policy from the University of Colorado, and my craving for the outdoors, combined with my vast knowledge of the Telluride area, inevitably led me to a career in real estate, and I’ve enjoyed every minute since.

When I’m not working hard for my clients, you can find me with my family enjoying all that Telluride living has to offer. From world-renowned festivals and dining experiences to world-class skiing, flyfishing, rafting, and mountain biking. Please reach out to me to discuss your real estate ambitions, and let me share my passion for Telluride with you.


As a broker associate with Telluride Properties, Mike Weist specializes in buyer relations and would love to share his passion for the Telluride lifestyle with you. But don’t take his word for it, read what past clients say about working with Mike:

From the start, Mike was responsive, knowledgeable, and eager to get to know us and understand our needs. He spent quite a bit of time with us preparing us for our visit to the area and spent countless hours with us while we were there. Mike provided excellent service, and has gone above and beyond. It has been a pleasure to work with him.

Donna J. & Alan N.

We have visited the San Juans for years now and always dreamed of making this our forever home. Mike made this experience stress free! His communication is top notch. He always answered our questions, and his knowledge of the area is awesome!

Brian & Rayna L.

Mike Weist was an incredible asset from beginning to end, in the process. We are long time visitors to Telluride, but as we realized, visiting and owning in Telluride are very different.

Jason & Tina S.

Mike’s dedication to his craft, professionalism and patience made the most difficult part of our transition easier than it might have been otherwise. Mike went above and beyond in helping us and deserves to be recognized for his exemplary work!

Alex & Roberta P.

From our initial email introduction to the moment we closed on our Telluride property--our soon to be forever home-- Mike was informative, thoughtful, creative, diligent, responsive, honest, and professional.

Jeff & Lisa M.

Mike was great; very knowledgeable about the local area and real estate markets, patient looking at many homes while offering good guidance. The purchase process was tense and a little contentious, (because of the sellers and/or their broker), and Mike was on top of the process the whole way.

Bob W.

Mike Weist went above and beyond to help us find our dream home. He tirelessly searched for our very specific needs and was there for us every step of the way, even after closing on the house. We really appreciated the care and thoughtfulness he provided us.

Taylor R. & Renan O.

Through the process, we both found Mike to be incredibly patient, upbeat, positive and very professional. We very much enjoyed being with him as we looked for a new home.

Scott & Mary F.

Mike Weist was the best realtor we have ever worked with when buying our home in Mountain Village. Mike was very educated on the Telluride market and was attentive to our needs and desires.

Rick & Beth W.

Mike was great in all aspects. He helped me find the right entry into the Telluride/Mountain Village market. He was very knowledgeable of the market and the product available and guided me toward the perfect property. Mike was always easy to contact and reached out regularly to keep me on track during the closing process.
