Bluebird Takes Flight in Gunnison

By Patti Hensley

Bluebird Real Estate hit the ground running with our expansion into Gunnison. The addition of the newly founded Gunnison office opened the door for some of the area’s leading experts to join the team, including Steve Mills, Bobby Overturf and Brian Cooper. The Gunnison office will provide exceptional marketing, knowledgeable service and successful results to our Gunnison clients. Bluebird Gunnison agents will set up a temporary office space at 121 W Virginia Avenue while the newly purchased building at 218 N Main Street undergoes extensive renovations to create a modern and inviting atmosphere.

We are thrilled to immerse ourselves in the Gunnison community, participate in events, support non-profits and share with our clients all that Gunnison has to offer. As a locally owned and operated boutique real estate brokerage, it was a natural progression for Bluebird to dive deeper into the Gunnison market. We found many of our clients are moving from one end of the valley to another and participating in functions across both communities. Expanding our ability to better serve our clients at both ends of the valley will help us deliver successful results with smooth, seamless transitions.

Brian Cooper shares his enthusiasm, noting that the “marketing efforts of Bluebird Real Estate are best in class.” Brian joined the team in September of 2021 and will help lead the charge in Gunnison with the goal of becoming the #1 Brokerage in the Gunnison area.

Bud Bush, Principal, chose Gunnison because of the limitless opportunity. “The Gunnison region is such an exciting market with the expansion of the airport, the growth at Western Colorado University and the Gunnison Valley Hospital, and it is an important connection to surrounding communities. We are excited to embrace the community, be involved and participate.” Prices in Gunnison have risen over 20 percent this year and sales are up 38 percent, causing inventory to be at record lows.

Built on a vision of Bringing Dreams Home, Bluebird Real Estate strives to keep the interests of our clients our highest priority through attentive listening, asking questions, building relationships, and in-depth research to locate and procure the best properties at the best prices across the Gunnison Valley. We sincerely appreciate that the purchase of real estate is often the largest and most important investment our clients make. Our goal is to help our clients realize their dreams while making a positive impact in our community.
