Bluebird Welcomes Patti Hensley as General Manager

Bluebird is pleased to announce that Patti Hensley has been promoted from Public Relations and Broker Associate to General Manager of all operations, working exclusively on behalf of the agents and company. “Patti has been a remarkable leader and center for our public relations and communications as we have continued our pattern of growth, now into the Gunnison market”, emphasizes Bud Bush, Principal. Hensley joined the firm as a real estate broker and was quickly engaged in staff operations and support. Her background in management and marketing with Crested Butte Mountain Resort has forged a successful path toward leadership with Bluebird.

Originally from Georgia, Patti graduated with honors from the University of Georgia, and she is a fourth-generation Bulldog. She made her way to Crested Butte following her love of the mountains of Appalachia and the recreational opportunities that our valley offers. Patti chose a career in real estate to combine a passion for beautiful mountain properties with her innate desire to bring people together in our community.

“It is wonderful that Bluebird is equipping our team to thrive and lead as we grow, and Patti is a perfect fit in this progression. She speaks the agents’ language, and everyone loves working with her. With the addition of Patti, our company offers the best marketing, office support and leadership, not to mention that we are locally owned”, cites Maggie Dethloff, a top-producing veteran of the firm.

Hensley has brought about many exciting changes in her life recently beyond her real estate career. Her new black lab, Hoss is learning the trails. She is engaged to be married to Travis Miller this fall, and they are finalizing plans to build their dream home in the Gunnison Valley.
