I moved to Colorado in 1979. Other than being pulled away to play baseball for the Harding University Bisons, building housing and running a secondary school in Kaptagat, Kenya and starting a Ready to Use Theraputic Food Company in North Carolina, this is home.
My family and I live in Old Town Fort Collins and we work and play throughout the front range. We love our backyard chickens, biking along the Poudre, camping and all that northern Colorado has to offer.
In addition to helping clients meet their Real Estate related goals, I coach new agents, contract with municipalities to manage liens, work with affordable housing (LIHTC) developers, partner with families to teach budgeting, and coach Pop Warner football.

“I don’t know how we got so lucky to get connected with Mike Salza. He patiently showed us around Fort Collins and the surrounding areas, helped us find the perfect house and negotiated a great deal for us. There was never any doubt that Mike was our advocate during the entire process. He went above and beyond what he needed to do, helping us price potential repairs to the house, connecting us with appropriate vendors (such as inspectors), and basically holding our hand throughout the entire process. He even checked on the house regularly after closing to make sure things were all right until we arrived (we moved from out of state). He was always very accessible/available when anything came up and made us feel like we were his only client. On top of that, he’s a really nice guy who is a genuine pleasure to spend time with. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a home. On a scale of one to ten I would give Mike a score of 100.”
Catherine Carabetta, Closing Day in 2015!
“Buying your first home can be a scary and stressful experience and having the right person to guide you through it is so important. We could not have asked for a better person to guide us, Mike is just fantastic to work with. He was happy to sit down with us and answer our numerous questions, even for hours at a time! When we first met with him, he was upfront about the difficulties we would probably face in the market, but was optimistic that we would find the right place for us, and that optimism stuck throughout the process. When we starting looking at houses and making offers, he would make himself available to us at all hours of the day, night, and weekend so we got our offers submitted as quickly as possible. He was on top of all of our deadline dates and would offer advice whenever he was able. We are grateful for his honesty and making this daunting process as clear and easy as possible. He made us feel like a priority, and we truly enjoyed talking to him. We can’t recommend him enough to anyone looking to buy or sell!”

“Mike recently helped us in the purchasing of a home in Fort Collins, Co. He drove us around the entire Fort Collins/Loveland area and even to some of the outlying areas to give us a feel for the area. Mike is very knowledgeable about the markets in all of these areas. He was patient and had plenty of time for educating us on the current market and for driving us hither and yon to look at houses. After we had chosen a house to put in an offer, He held our hand through the process till closing, always keeping us abreast of deadlines as they came up. It was a pleasure working with Mike, and we would certainly us him again in another home purchase”
Richard Anderson, Closing Day in 2015!
“Plain and simple: Mike Salza is amazing.
We had a difficult lender and our home buying process took almost 6 months to complete. Mike was dedicated to us the entire time and his amazing attitude never faltered. He never handed us off to another agent or gave up due to the lengthy time frame. He is open, honest, and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate and we would recommend him with high regards to anyone needing a realtor. We are actually waiting for some friends to get in the home market so we can send them to Mike! Definitely call him if you need a realtor!”
Heather Meyer, Closing Day in 2014!

I have recommended him to many of my friends and would say to anyone who reads this …. look no further he is the one you and your family want to work with!!!”

“MIke is a fantastic realtor! We were so pleased with his level of skill and knowledge of the market. We moved here from another town and really relied heavily on his knowledge of the area and the market. He successfully navigated us to an incredible deal on a house we love in a very hot market where houses don’t last on the market! His customer service was unparalleled and I have since referred him to my parents and several friends. My parents are thrilled with his work as their realtor on their recent home purchase as well. HIs work ethic, integrity, and amazing knowledge of the area combine to make a very effective, hard working realtor who really goes out of the way to help you with every step of the process. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.”

“I haven’t worked directly with Mike, but I have referred friends and family to him, and they’ve all given me great feedback that he is wonderful to work with. He is knowledgeable, a clear communicator, and absolutely honest – willing to give advice and information that isn’t “popular.” I absolutely would recommend Mike and trust him to work with any of my friends, family, and my parents.”
Steve Glass, 2015
“I met Mike through a close friend and have always admired his integrity and honesty. When it came time for my aging parents to sell their home, Mike’s wise counsel and knowledge of the local market helped us set a much higher price for the home than we would have initially. He helped guide my mom to make the best decisions under some difficult circumstances. When the house my wife and I were renting came up for sale, Mike helped us understand how to make an offer, how to ask for things to be fixed that needed to be fixed, how to work with our landlord’s agent, and basically taught us what we needed to know as first time home buyers. I would highly recommend Mike as a Realtor. He is dedicated, helpful, compassionate and wise.”
