Embarking on his Telluride real estate career in 1971, TD Smith has passionately participated, first in the re-birth and development of historic Telluride, then subsequently in 1981 as a co-founder of Telluride Real Estate Corp. with the Telluride Ski and Golf Company. As a co-owner of the marketing arm of the Telluride mountain village’s master developer, TD had a vital and inceptive influence behind the village’s beginnings, as well as many other regional developments in which he was involved as broker or principal. TD’s excellent reputation in the industry was recently recognized by his peers when the “lifetime achievement award” was bestowed upon him.
Further, that reputation is exemplified in the distinguished, upscale properties and astute clientele he represents. His long-standing business philosophy is to build lasting relationships with his clients by identifying and sharing their desire to be intimately involved in a mountain community, whether for leisure, investment, or both.
TD and his wife Page have been married for over 27 years. Their son Alex, raised in the San Juan Mountains, recently graduated from Pitzer College of the Claremont Consortium of Colleges in Los Angeles. TD and Page reside in the Historic Town of Telluride and over the years have maintained active involvement in numerous facets of the community. TD has held directorships on the boards of the Telluride Alpine Race Team, Mountain Village Metropolitan District, Affordable Housing Task Force, Board of Realtors (first elected president), Sheridan Arts Foundation, Ah Haa School for the Arts, Pinhead Institute and Fair Housing Committee. He is a graduate of Purdue University.
