Bud has enjoyed a wide variety of experience in real estate throughout his life. As a student and young professional, he worked in real estate banking, land development and in a family development business. He received his real estate license after high school, and he graduated from SMU with a real estate business degree. After selling homes for nearly two decades in the established neighborhoods of Dallas, Bush led and managed a team of realtors that grew exponentially to a luxury brand of five offices and 275 agents, with leading market share in the heart of Dallas, Texas.
Bud and his wife Nancy, his high school sweetheart from Houston, and a practicing attorney and recreational chef, raised their two sons in Dallas, enjoying lots of time on the lacrosse field and at the country lease. After many visits to Crested Butte, and with a love of the outdoors, they settled in Crested Butte and realized a dream in founding Bluebird Real Estate. Bud and Nancy are very involved with the community through Rotary, KBUT and the Center for the Arts.
