Mic originally came to Denver from Los Alamos, New Mexico to attend Regis University, where he graduated with honors in Finance and Business Administration. This small town New Mexico native loved living in Denver so much (in particular The Highlands) that he never left. Mic used his finance background to land a job in the banking industry before he landed in real estate. After 11+ years as a licensed real estate agent, Mic is an integral part of the West + Main Homes team, focusing primarily on the real estate of his favorite neighborhoods in Denver, The Highlands and Central Denver. Mic proudly calls Denver his home, and at heart, he is a Colorado native.
Being a full time agent allows Mic to view hundreds of homes every month, and he passes on his extensive knowledge of the Denver real estate market to his buyers and sellers. The ever-changing real estate market in Denver is currently "strong" for sellers and staying on top of market trends is imperative. This is something Mic studies on a daily basis knowing what parts of the city are particularly "hot" or "cold." Mic thrives on helping his clients find the perfect neighborhood and house that best fits his client's needs and takes pride in his role as an agent. His goal is not only finding the perfect home for his client, but to ensure that the home is a terrific investment as well. And his advice is well-supported by his experience as an investor himself, which ensures that Mic can help ANY and ALL of his clients get the most out of their homes.
Mic believes that an informed client who knows he/she is making a smart investment is a satisfied client.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT MIC…
"As I'm sure most in the Denver market can relate, properties can come and go very quickly. When I found the home I wanted, Mic moved quickly and efficiently to get my offer in. I'm confident that my bid was not the highest, but it was Mic's knowledge and ability to close quickly that persuaded the seller to accept my offer. He worked hard and stayed on top of everything, which allowed us to close the property in three weeks and at a price significantly lower than what the property was worth. An amazing job and I would recommend Mic to anyone looking for real estate in the greater Denver metro area. "
- Leo Dunn
"Mic was wonderful in helping me list my home and get the most showings, offers, etc as well as manage finding a new home at the same time. I was definitely stressed about the process and he really helped ease my mind. He also recommended a great lender which also eased the process and made everything go extremely well. It couldn't have been a more perfect and I would HIGHLY recommend Mic Ortega for any of your real estate needs. "
- Kate Van Cott
"I chose Mic to list and sell my home after interviewing several realtors and it was a very good decision. He's very responsive, professional, and knows the local markets and neighborhoods very well. The entire process, from listing to close, was smooth and kept on track. He also provided a stager and a photographer who took fantastic photos of the property."
"Mic was my realtor in my search for a house and he was recommended to me by several friends. I was not disappointed! He was very knowledgeable about the area of town in which I was hoping to buy. As a first-time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions about the process and he was able to answer them all. He was great about walking me through the contract and worked with me on counter offers, etc, to get things just right. "
- Stephanie Miller
"Mic has helped my husband and I buy two houses in the Highlands of Denver at this point. He's helped us find houses in the exact specification that were were looking and provided little bits of help so that we don't make any purchasing mistakes. He referred us to an honest, helpful, and quick responding loan officer when our original plan fell through. Mic knows the west Denver area very well and has always been honest with us when it comes to property values. We appreciate his quick responses since houses move fast in our price range. We recommend him to our friends and will continue to use Mic for future home purchases. "
