Upon graduating from Brown University in 1984, Brian entered the real estate world as a project planner for a large development firm in Boston. He moved to Telluride in 1989 for a winter of skiing in the San Juans and instantly fell in love with the region. Brian decided to stay and actively became involved in the luxury real estate market. Brian’s mission is to provide the most thorough, professional and insightful service possible helping you decide what is genuinely the best property for you personally.
During his 27 years in the real estate and construction industries, Brian has acquired extensive experience working with Residential Properties, Investment & Development Properties, International Buyers and Ranch Properties. Since joining Telluride Properties in 1998, he has sold over $235m worth of real estate averaging over $1.5m per transaction which includes the highest priced home and condo in 2011 as well as the highest priced residential property in the history of the Telluride market.
His affiliation with Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate has given him access to the strongest network of international as well as national brokers providing him with exclusive abilities to sell high-end properties. The result is a client base extending beyond the U.S. to Bermuda, Australia, London, China, Brazil, Venezuela, Nicaragua and more.
The Telluride community has greatly supported Brian personally and professionally, he feels honored to return the favor by volunteering his time for community causes. He currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Telluride Foundation, the philanthropic resource in the region for both donors and service providers alike. Presently, he is serving a three-year term on the Grants Committee with a turn as the Chair in 2011.
Brian is an avid outdoor enthusiast who started in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and after a brief respite while playing football at Brown, has gone global with his adventures. He has explored and guided ski trips to such places as the Andes, Kamchatka, the Caucuses, the Alps, Alaska and Antarctica. Surfing has taken him to Bali, Uruguay, Hawaii, Costa Rica and much of Central America. Skiing remains his foremost passion with a career guiding heli-skiing in Alaska and Telluride but today his greatest adventure is here in Telluride chasing his two young boys, Quinn and Grayden, with his legendary North Face athlete wife Hilaree.
