Born and raised in Texas, and having come from a real estate-based family, I have real world experience and expansive knowledge in the industry. With my father being a contractor and multi-family developer in East Texas, you could say real estate is in my blood. I hold a Texas and Colorado sales agent license. Before starting my career, I attended the University of Texas at Austin, and was a race member of both the collegiate cycling team and USA cycling.
After many back-to-back, adrenaline-pumping summers vacationing in Crested Butte, I asked myself the crossroads questions: Why am I living in Texas? I had fallen in love with the mountains, community and lifestyle. Within the following week, I made the full-time move to Crested Butte. It’s truly the best decision I’ve made yet. The outdoors component and mountain lifestyle that Crested Butte offers complements my innate character, and made the transition feel effortless and organic.
Outside of real estate, I’m an avid cyclist and outdoorsman. Of course, living in the Butte, you almost have to be. As a sibling to a professionally-contracted cyclist in Europe, I’ve had the privilege of seeing the world from the unique view of my bike and have met the best people, including my lifelong friends, along the way. I’ve even biked across our great country and Canada- Now imagine putting that tenacity and motivation to work for you as your personal REALTOR®.
Each client is different and has different needs. I strive for quality and attention to detail while professionally and ethically protecting my clients interests from start to close, making their home buying and selling processes painless, understandable, and enjoyable. You can be confident and assured that you will only receive the most updated market and local area information. After the transaction process is long over, I truly know I have done my job to help others when the Crested Butte community and I gain a new neighbor and friend. I am fortunate that I am able to practice my passion for real estate in one of the most majestic places I’ve traveled, and I love my work!

“We met Jenna as we were looking in the window of her Bluebird Real Estate office on Elk Ave. She was quick to find out what we were looking for and found several properties within days without wasting our time. She was very easy to work with, was never pushy and was like working with a friend. Once we found the condo we liked, she stayed involved and helped with the process through to closing. Our experience was so good, when asked by a friend if we would recommend Jenna, we immediately said, "yes"! They found a condo they loved within days of contacting her! Thanks, Jenna!” Sherry & Keith S
“We were interested in some lots in Pitkin, CO, and contacted real estate agent, Jenna May, in Crested Butte. She promptly located the owner of the property and we were able to make an offer which was accepted shortly thereafter. Jenna handled all of the paperwork involved and kept us notified routinely as to how the sale was progressing. She remained diligent all the way through closing. We would certainly recommend Jenna to any prospective buyers or sellers in the areas of Pitkin, Gunnison or Crested Butte. When we are in the market again for a Realtor, Jenna, will be our choice! ” Beverly & James B
“I am writing this recommendation in gratitude for Jenna May's impeccable professionalism. I have been working with Jenna for a little less than a year in search for a small home I hoped to be located on Mount Crested Butte. I had some detailed expectations.. such as a specific square footage, unobstructed views of the mountain along with a specific neighborhood. Jenna was determined to find my location and specifications. I knew the moment I reviewed the property that it was the perfect space for me, and it was everything plus a bit more than I imagined. Two weeks later we closed. Looking back at my experience with Jenna, I cannot believe how easily and quickly it all came to fruition. She truly is a class act with unlimited potential and determination.” Ruta M

“My wife and recently sold our condo in Mt. Crested Butte, CO and Jenna May of Bluebird Real Estate was our realtor. Jenna handled the transaction from start to finish and we would rate her performance as 5 stars out of 5. Jenna is very personable and professional. We worked together in setting a reasonable selling price for our unit (which we actually exceeded) and thus our time on the market was short, She was always available to handle questions during the selling and closing process. Jenna always returned phone calls and text messages in a timely manner and always kept us up to date on the progress of the negotiation on our unit. She was always proactive in dealing with the prospective buyer as well as dealing with our condo management staff. Jenna is very knowledgeable of the goings on in the Crested Butte/Mt Crested Butte area and we would certainly recommend her to any prospective sellers or buyers in the area.” Harry and Gail L.
