Mountainwest Hotels

Founded by Wylie Elson in 2002, MountainWest is an innovative hotel brokerage that sells hotels and motels in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and northern New Mexico, between Glenwood Springs and Santa Fe.

As a smaller firm, MountainWest provides better service and higher client satisfaction than the larger, more impersonal firms. Because we focus on a select number of clients at a time, we provide more marketing services than the big guys while developing deeper, longer-lasting relationships with sellers and buyers.

At MountainWest, we know that mountain town and resort hotel buyers are different from hotel buyers who target interstate or city locations. We have strong relationships with buyers who want to purchase hotels in these unique markets.


We value your confidential and proprietary information, and we ensure that your sensitive information is protected.
We provide an unbeatable level of personalized service to our sellers and buyers.
We stress creativity and imagination in everything we do.
We strive to create win-win results for our clients that are based on mutual trust, honesty, and a high level of understanding.
The sales process sometimes requires teamwork with third-party professionals such as attorneys and accountants. We know when to bring them into the transaction for maximum benefit and how to avoid unnecessary costs when employing these professionals.
Clear communication
We never keep our buyers or sellers “in the dark.” We communicate often, clearly, professionally, and honestly.
We take great pride in the professional quality of our work, and our clients' interests always come first. We believe that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow!
