Hi, I’m Frank Konsella, and I’m the Crested Butte real estate agent above the rest. Real estate is a lot like climbing a mountain- you start with the research, then you take it one step at a time until you reach the summit. Reaching summits is what I do- both in real estate and in my spare time, as one of the few people to have skied all of Colorado’s mountains over 14,000 feet.

Without experience, few people would attempt to climb a mountain without a guide. The same can be said of real estate- as your real estate agent I consider myself your guide through the process, helping you make smart and informed decisions throughout the transaction on the way to your goals.

Frank Konsella serves the areas of Crested Butte, Mount Crested Butte, Crested Butte South, Almont, and Gunnison- all unique areas with slightly different markets, an important consideration for both buyers and sellers. I specialize in all types of property including luxury homes, historic properties, townhomes, ranches, ski-in/ski-out properties, golf properties, condominiums, resort real estate, and vacant land.

The local real estate market got off to a slow start in 2018, with January only recording 25 sales compared to 45 a year ago. The big question of course is why? The lack of inventory is almost certainly one factor- we need more sellers entering the market. The lack of snow this season may be playing a factor as well- especially for Denver-area skiers that have become the largest source of buyers in Crested Butte. Whatever the reason, it may just be an anomaly and sales will once again pick up. The past couple of days alone have seen an increase in properties under contract, so we will have to wait and see what the rest of February brings.

The following year over year graphs compare the previous 365 days with the same period one year ago (i.e. 1/31/2016 through 1/31/2017 versus the same period from 2017 to 2018). With such a small market (sample size) these numbers can jump around, so it’s worth comparing these graphs over a period of time.

2017 finished strong, with sales in both November and December near 10 year record levels. Not only that, but the dollar amount is well above even last year’s pace. At this point, the only thing that may slow sales down in 2018 will be the limited inventory if additional property owners don’t place their properties on the market. Perhaps the most interesting sales at the end of 2017 were land sales- one being Nevada Ridge, a development that never quite got off the ground in Mount Crested Butte. Bigger still was the sale of 76 lots in Buckhorn Ranch which the original developer lost to the bank and were tied up in the courts for years. Buckhorn Ranch is a great area to consider if you’re looking to build in the future.
