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.

October was another good month in Crested Butte real estate, with 78 properties sold at a total of almost $43 million- which is almost identical to September’s figures. Compare that to 2010, when 28 properties sold at a total value of $13 million in October. Year to date, sales volume is up 12% over last year, while the dollar volume is up an impressive 42%! The most remarkable thing about that statement is that 2017 had the highest sales figures in at least a decade. It remains a great time to sell in the Crested Butte and Gunnison area, and low interest rates mean that if you’re patient, it can be a good time to buy as well. Active inventory and properties under contract are down from last month in almost every neighborhood, which is typical as we head towards the ski season.

The following year over year graphs compare the previous 365 days with the same period one year ago (i.e. 10/31/2016 through 10/31/2017 versus the same period from 2015 to 2016). With such a small market (sample size) these numbers can jump around, so it’s worth comparing these graphs over a period of time.

If you are looking for other statistics, such as inventory, or a more specific neighborhood analysis, please contact me.

September was another good month in Crested Butte real estate, with 78 properties sold at a total of almost $43 million. Last year was great, too, at 77 properties, but for comparison the total value was only $27.7 million. The challenge for buyers continues to be low inventory, with many property owners choosing not to sell despite the increasing prices. It remains a great time to sell for many properties and price points.
