Real Estate Advisor, Broker/Owner
Born and raised in Bellingham, WA I grew up skiing in the Cascades and sailing in the San Juans (islands that is).
Hailing from a family of Nords, my Mom was born & raised in Norway, the roots go deep on both sides … and yes, my name is pronounced ‘out’, Ahneh-Britt, I was raised like a good Viking, mountains and oceans are in my blood and I know mountain living!
In 1997 I moved to Durango to finish up my degree at Fort Lewis College and achieved my BA in Accounting with a double minor in Finance & Business Administration in 1999.
I spent 9 years in Durango running my own small business with two other partners (one of whom later became my husband), Durango’s first indoor rock climbing gym & fitness center, Animas City Rock Gym; all the while spending every chance I had playing in the San Juan mountains. I finally moved to Silverton full-time in October of 2003 where I partnered with a friend, Steve Leisle, in buying the real estate company Silverton Realty. In May of 2012, my family and I moved to Telluride, where I launched Mountain Rose Realty.
I enjoy helping people find the perfect property for their lifestyle. I am a careful listener and have a lot of different points of views to help my Buyers make careful and informed decisions. I can look at properties from the point of athletic use (both summer and winter, from hiking, biking, to skiing and simply lifestyle), to a parent’s point of view, or from someone looking to get the most out of their mountain retreat.
I love where I live and I care for my Community. I am the founder of the idea of ‘1% for the Community’, based on the idea of 1% for the Planet, annually I give back 1% of my net sales to the local charities of my Buyer’s choice (if you’re one of my peeps, I’ll be touching base with you around the first of December)!
By working with me you are choosing a Realtor who will be there for you every step of the way, long past the final purchase and who gives back to the Community that we have all fallen in love with.
I look forward to helping you find your perfect place here in the Telluride area!

Broker/Owner, Silverton Realty, Inc.
Steve Leisle grew up in the vicinity of New York City, attending college in Maine, and working at a nuclear power plant in Georgia. After college, Steve settled into the construction business in Durango, where he worked for over ten years refining his skills in straw bale, adobe, log, renovation and custom carpentry. By January 2001, Steve was ready for a new adventure and a greater challenge. He had spent time in Silverton and had grown to love its spectacular landscape, easy access to the outdoors, and affordable land prices. Steve was also ready for a smaller community where he could make a home for himself. So he bought a commercial property and fastidiously renovated it into a live/work space that showcases his many talents in carpentry. He now hangs his Silverton Realty shingle out front, and you’ll find him ready to meet all your real estate needs and show you what makes San Juan County truly exceptional.
