Welcome To Real Estate Affiliates

Entering its 17th year of operation, Real Estate Affiliates of Telluride is widely recognized as one of the region’s top boutique real estate offices. Founded by James F. “Jim” Lucarelli, Past-President of the Telluride Association or Realtors, three-time Telluride Realtor of the Year, and 28-year veteran of the Telluride real estate market, the company is committed to providing independent, professional advice and service for its clients – buyers, sellers, and investors alike.

As a boutique brokerage house, we provide the integrity, experience, and professionalism needed for successful ventures in the Telluride area and we pride ourselves in providing personalized service backed by extensive experience in our dynamic real estate market. We are active members of the Telluride and Montrose Associations of Realtors and both Multiple Listing Services. Through our strong and proven relationships with all of the region’s real estate companies, we can access and introduce you to any and all of the properties listed in the region or across the western slope of Colorado.

In Real Estate Affiliates 16-year history we’ve had some notable highs. Within 48 days of opening our doors in 2002 we listed and sold what was at the time the second most expensive home ever sold in the Town of Telluride. In the same year we also listed and sold Casa en la Montana, the most expensive home sold in Aldasoro in the early 2000s. In 2004 we listed and sold the second most expensive home in Telluride to close that year and in 2006 we listed and sold the second most expensive home to close in Mountain Village. After the downturn, we recorded the second largest ranch sale in San Miguel County in 2010 (and highest price/acre) and in 2012 we recorded the highest $/sq. ft. sale for a single family home in Telluride and successfully listed and sold a FDIC owned property at 133 S. Oak Street for over $3 million. In 2016 Jim was involved in more single-family home sales in the Town of Telluride than any other individual agent, and Real Estate Affiliates of Telluride had two more good years in 2017 and 2018.

As one of the few boutique offices in town, we are extremely proud of these results, particularly when compared to the 40+ person offices with national affiliations, and will continue to use our flexibility to adapt our marketing strategies to the changing market to produce the best possible outcomes for our clients.
