Bluebird Celebrates Five Years!

Five years have flown by since Bluebird Real Estate was founded in April of 2017. Built on the foundation of Bringing Dreams Home, we are incredibly appreciative of all our clients who entrusted us with their properties and investments over the years. We took the opportunity to look back and reflect upon everything we have accomplished, how much we have grown, how thankful we are for our clients and team, and ways we can continue connecting with our community in the future.

In 2017 we started with 8 producing agents. By 2018 we launched Bluebird Days Magazine, our premium bi-annual lifestyle publication. Bluebird supported the Center for the Arts capital campaign project in 2019 through a multiyear sponsorship and the purchase of their state-of-the-art projector. Although 2020 brought many unknowns, Bluebird had a record year as the #1 Brokerage in the Valley in listings and sales. In 2021 we expanded our services to the Gunnison market by bringing three veteran agents on board and purchasing our building on Main Street.

2022 is already starting off to be another great year at Bluebird. We have grown to 23 agents with four staff members and two assistants across two offices. This summer, we will publish the ninth edition of Bluebird Days Magazine and celebrate the opening of our newly renovated Main Street storefront in Gunnison later this year. We are also underway with redefining and refreshing our brand identity and mission. Bluebird continues to contribute a portion of every property closing commission to the Bluebird Charitable Fund, which bestows grants to local non-profits for the positive initiatives they foster across the Gunnison Valley.

Bluebird’s in-house marketing and modern designs have earned many accolades, including our most recent List with Bluebird video, which was awarded the #1 video in the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World 2022 Marketing Contest. Bluebird Real Estate is a locally owned, distinctive brand with global reach because we are the exclusive regional member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio International. As part of the largest global networks of independent brokerages and luxury properties worldwide, Bluebird will connect you with a capable, dedicated, and like-minded agent to meet your needs worldwide. We hope to have the opportunity to help bring dreams home for you this year in Crested Butte, the greater Gunnison Valley, and beyond!
