As a broker associate in Telluride since 1989, Lars Carlson has been one of the leading brokers in the Telluride resort brokerage community, with over $200 million in gross sales. Currently, he is a Vice President with Telluride/Sotheby's International Realty and proudly represents some of the finest properties and homes in the Telluride region - from ski in/ski out, luxury trailside homes and condominiums to quaint Victorian homes in the heart of historic Telluride to estates and ranches in the surrounding areas. With his superior knowledge of the market, strong negotiating skills and commitment to excellent service, Lars works professionally with discerning buyers and sellers from around the globe to meet their needs and goals, which is reflected in his participation in over 10% of the Mountain Village home transactions during the last four years.
Lars is a respected broker within the community and among his peers, earning Realtor of the Year and the Presidential Award for his professionalism within the real estate industry and remains a long-standing board member, including past president in 2002/2003, of the Telluride Association of Realtors. He is a dedicated 14 year veteran of the Telluride Volunteer Fire Department and an advocate and donor for the Telluride Foundation, Telluride Regional Airport Authority & Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club. Lars actively participates in the Telluride Elementary School Ski PE program and sits on the Strokes of Genius Scholarship Committee and the Telluride Golf Club Greens Advisory Board.
After attending the University of Oregon, Lars moved to Telluride, Colorado in 1985 for a winter of skiing and adventure, a lifestyle that continues today - 28 years later. Though he has replaced ice axes and harnesses for hiking boots and golf clubs, Lars continues to take advantage of Telluride's incredible backyard. He is an avid golfer, skier, hiker, biker, fisherman and general outdoorsman but also enjoys reading and traveling when he is not trying to keep up with the women in his life: wife Annie and two young daughters Taylor and Skylar.
