introduction

It’s late spring and we will be in full bloom soon. The sunny side of the street is already revealing the buds of summer. There is resilience in the air as new stores and restaurants open following a bountiful ski season with snow totals well above average.

We always look forward to our summer friends returning to the valley, sharing the freedom of outdoor concerts, lively tastings and wildflower hikes.

The real estate market is off to a great start this spring. Bluebird’s sales are more than double from this time last year, and we continue to lead the market in listings and sales. Our agents are the most accomplished in the Crested Butte and Gunnison areas, with the highest number of top producers of any firm. We enjoy working together, and we recently celebrated our seventh anniversary with a toast and pizza party in Gunnison.

Enjoy perusing this new issue of bluebird days and see all the new listings that are hitting the market. Take in the feature story of Kent Viles of Castle Creek Guitars, the creator of a one-of-a-kind hand built “Dobrato” featuring a vibrato and string bending handle.

It is our clients who make our business possible and we are steadily mindful and appreciative. The trust and friendships that emerge are priceless, and we are grateful to be able to work and play with you in this wonderful paradise.

Happy trails,

spring 2024

It is spring and a time for rejuvenation and warm sunshine. As the snow melts and the flowers begin to bud, the anticipation for riding trails and joining friends for outdoor concerts mounts. It is a welcome, quiet time as we transition from a great ski season with above average snowfall.

There is a positive attitude in the real estate market as we head into summer. Several new restaurants are scheduled to open in our nation’s Wildflower Capital. Sales and confidence are up compared to this time last year. Inventories are growing to normal levels, and despite upticks in interest rates, they are still at healthy levels and buyers are indicating that they are tired of waiting and are ready to buy.

The first quarter in the Crested Butte area is the beginning of a track that builds steadily through the year. Indicators are that expensive properties are in high demand. The average home price in the town of Crested Butte is now over $1,260 per square foot. In Mt. Crested Butte, the average home price is over $2.6 million for the first time ever.

With more high end sales, the rural Crested Butte market, including Skyland, Trappers and Danni Ranch, is reaching average prices over $3.5

million. CB South is steady with only a few sales with an average home price of $1.1 million, due to high demand and low available listings.

Condominium sales are steady, but the inventory has doubled to 64 available units, with twelve sales year to date.

Land sales have slowed to eight transactions in the first quarter, with a rise in available tracts to 126. Some land owners have opted to purchase existing structures for a quicker entrance to the market.

Bluebird continues to lead the market with the highest number of sales this year and last year of any firm in the Gunnison Valley. Our associates feel bullish on the spring market. They assert that our destination is highly desired, and they have lots of buyers who are ready to purchase this season when the right properties come on the market.

We would love to show you how we are “bringing dreams home.” Bluebird is the exclusive regional member of Luxury Portfolio International, the largest global consortium of independent brokers and premium properties.

spring 2024

The whitewater kayakers and serious mountain bikers lead the way in ushering spring into summer in the Gunnison area. Following a healthy winter snow season, the calves are plentiful in the pastures and the golfers are warming up their swings.

As the trees bloom on Main Street, we enjoy and appreciate the transition to sunny days and warmer weather. Natural Grocers recently opened along with Dilly Deli and Crested Bucha, and the Gunnison Arts Center has announced its summer concert schedule. New housing developments continue to be announced to satisfy much-needed demand in several sectors.

The real estate market is showing signs of sustained strength in the Gunnison area. Average home prices in town are nearing $700,000, as demand is keeping inventory to a minimum of six offerings. Rural Gunnison sales doubled in the first quarter with twelve transactions averaging a new high averaging over $1.4 million.

The condominium market has paused with only four sales to date, averaging just over $375,000, probably due to a lack of inventory and higher mortgage costs. Land sales are steady for the start of the year, averaging $330,000, and there has only been one commercial sale this year at $335,000 with 14 available properties.

Our associates anticipate listings to increase in the spring market, stimulating strong sales activity for the summer. Bluebird leads the Gunnison market in listings and sales this year and last. As a grateful member of the community, we are optimistic for the future of this County Seat, with the diversity of core drivers such as the university, hospital system, air travel, and governmental hub – not to mention the crossroads for ranching, hunting, and recreation.

We would love to work with you and show you how we are “bringing dreams home.” Bluebird is the exclusive regional member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, the largest global network of properties and independent brokerages.

community spotlight

This year, enjoy everything Crested Butte has to offer — stunning beauty, outdoor adventure and amazing comradery — while, at the same time, giving back to those living right next to you. That is the goal of Trek for Life, a local organization committed to raising awareness of mental health issues affecting those in our valley and providing much needed services. Founded in 2019 by Paul Uhl, Trek for Life originally partnered with The Center for Mental Health in Gunnison to start a mental health services clinic in Crested Butte. At that time, there were no such services available in Crested Butte. Six years later, Trek for Life is now in its third year of partnering with Gunnison Valley Health Foundation (“GVH”), with 100% of its fundraising going to GVH — specifically earmarked for providing mental health and whole health services in Crested Butte for the under or un-insured.

Paul Uhl, a native of Chicago, founded Trek for Life in honor of his son and Crested Butte resident, Kyle Uhl, who took his life while living in Crested Butte in 2018. Like many of us, Kyle was drawn to Crested Butte by his passion for the outdoors — for skiing, hiking, rock climbing, biking, and fishing. Trek for Life is Kyle’s father’s commitment to helping bridge the gap between those in need in our community and much needed health care services. But, he can’t do it alone. As Paul states, “Trek for Life is about a community helping itself. This is not something that one organization or individual can do alone. Everyone needs to be aware and be active in reaching out to friends to make sure they are okay. People need to help and support each other in this community. That is why Trek for Life emphasizes that you don’t have to walk alone.” To date, Trek for

Life and Pedal Your Butte-Off! have provided more than 800 mental health sessions for those in our community, and the events continue to grow through the efforts of long-time sponsors like Bluebird Real Estate, GVH, Pinnacle Orthopedics, and KBUT Radio.

Each year, Paul Uhl hosts two fundraising events: Trek for Life Memorial Hike, a beautiful 11-mile hike over West Maroon Pass from Crested Butte to Snowmass; and Pedal Your Butte-Off!, a human-powered wheeled “challenge” through the Town of Crested Butte, ending with a celebration of life in Town Park with live music, food, and drink! Elk Avenue will be closed for Pedal Your Butte-Off! for all to enjoy! Be creative! Ride a wheeled device of your own creation, wear a costume, and sport a mustache! Your imagination is the only limit and fun is a given!

Trek for Life Memorial Hike will be held this Fall, on September 14, 2024, during Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month. Pedal Your Butte-Off! will be held Sunday, June 23, 2024. You can help by registering to participate in either event online at trekforlife.net and use your profile page to invite your family, friends, and co-workers to walk with you, to sponsor you, or to make a donation in your name!

You Don’t Have to Walk Alone

Kent Viles strings attached

The strings are still attached because local guitar expert Kent Viles, creator, innovator, and musician, with his business partner, owns the rights to an ingenious device that manufacturers such as Fender or Gibson guitars would love to get their hands on.

Kent Viles is an inventive, humble soul from Muncie, Indiana, who found Gunnison on a high school road trip in the late ’60’s. As with many, he decided he would have to return for college – less inspired by the academic offerings, yet more so for the skiing and fishing. Within two weeks of his arrival, he met his future wife, Christine, and the path was already forging.

discovering guitar

A musician and composer since middle school, Kent learned to play on his grandpa’s high-action vintage Gibson acoustic guitar. Once he learned five songs, the inspired player was promised his own guitar. “I got the genetic code for musical instruments from Grandpa, who could sit down at a piano or guitar and play anything without any sheet music,” Kent reflects. “I could pick up an accordion or flute and play it – music came easy to me. I was once even a professional jazz saxophonist.” In no time, Kent demonstrated his natural talent, played five songs on Grandpa’s guitar and his dad took him to the guitar shop. Kent remembered, “This was in the ‘50’s and there were all these now classic Gibsons and Fenders – and what did I pick out? A Teisco from Japan with five pickups and thirty switches – what was I thinking? Well, it had close action and was easy to play. Our first band was The Sandels, and our moms would drive us to fraternity parties to play at Ball State.”

18 issue 13 | bbre1.com

wildwood music

Once in college at Western State University, Kent worked at Wildflower Music on Tomichi where the Barnyard restaurant once resided. The violin shop and music store was run by Bradley Bowman. He taught Kent how to put an instrument together. “One day Bradley showed up out of the blue and handed me the keys, and said ‘send me some money every once in a while when you make it.’” The chips were falling in to place.

“I majored in art and biology at Western and wanted to do medical renderings, but this music opportunity sounded way more exciting. Once I started running the shop, we added the top brands: Gibson, Fender, Guild, Sun, Rogers, and Ludwig. We created a pretty epic shop in the middle of nowhere.” Kent always had an entrepreneurial mind and determination adding, “In this small town, you had to think outside your bubble. We added the first Western Union in Wildwood Music – and then offered records, tapes, 8-tracks, cassettes, and lessons. We even expanded in to electronics in the ‘80’s and sold the first Walkman’s in the region.” Always seeking new opportunities, they expanded further, being the first store to market cellular phones and satellite dish systems, including advanced audio and video home installations.

castle creek guitars

In the latter part of the 2000’s, recession hit and electronic sales suffered. “I had to refocus, and in 2011, I opened Castle Creek Guitars on Main Street with a business partner. We created videos of all the guitars we carried and put them online. We hosted a weekly TV show in the shop, ‘Live from Castle Creek Guitars’ that was streaming worldwide before anyone was doing it. It was inspired by a previous live feed we transmitted over the phone line to Earth Radio (now KBUT) from Wildwood Music.”

“I love the tone of a resophonic guitar (also known as a dobro), especially with finger style blues.” The resophonic guitar looks like an acoustic guitar with a hubcap on top. It was designed and created to add volume to the playing when competing with horns in a band.

Kent is a slim figure in a western button shirt, with a stylish almost rockabilly cool gray quaff and retro green safety glasses. His open and easy approachable nature makes it natural for him to pick up a guitar and start picking for you with seasoned pointed nails on his right hand.

“I thought it would be cool to have a vibrato on this guitar, and after researching it, I found that nobody had done it before on an acoustic guitar.” A vibrato, also referred to as a tremolo or whammy bar is a stainless-steel handle mounted to the bridge near the right hand of the guitar player. When pulled, it lowers the tension of the strings, creating a wah wah effect. Picture Jimi Hendrix or the surf rock of the Ventures.

After retro fitting several acoustic guitars with vibrato tail pieces, and as with many of Kent’s ideas, he took this one into his own hands and decided to design and build an acoustic resophonic guitar with a vibrato,

the first of its kind in the world. “I started with the Republic Highway model, a metal body that came out of Texas. Then, I developed my own mounting system that was sturdier and didn’t compromise the sound.”

“Another guitar enthusiast out of upstate New York, James Alday, contacted me about this guitar I had developed. He had come up with the concept for a pull bend.” This is slang for the b-bender guitar, which was originally created in 1968 by Gene Parsons and Clarence White of the Byrds. Their version is a complex pully system routed through the body from the back of an electric guitar, and it emulates the sound of a pedal steel guitar when activated by a lever on the strap knob, often heard in americana and country music.

“I was intrigued by the idea, and we exchanged drawings. I came up with the design for the mechanism, which is also incorporated into the vibrato bar.” This is a first of its kind – a simple vibrato bar mounted on the bridge of the guitar (no cumbersome pully system or routing required), that when pushed in towards the body, lowers the pitch of all the strings (surf rock), and when pulled upward, bends the B string up a step (country twang).

“I was intrigued by the idea, and we exchanged drawings. I came up with the design for the mechanism, which is also incorporated into the vibrato bar.”

The Dobrato is born, coined by Kent, a term combining “vibrato” and “dobro”. Kent’s partner has the patent on the design of the bending mechanism motion, and Kent has applied for a patent on the b-bender with the Dobrato, which is the only way they can be purchased. “It’s a simplified motion with the fewest parts – an ergonomic and elegant design.” It’s a transformational achievement for Kent, as well as for performing artists who play multiple instruments and now can achieve much more versatility without changing guitars.

issue 13 | bbre1.com
dobrato Kent and Jason Isbell

the news is out

Although Kent is more about the creation than the proclamation, word has gotten out about his unique Dobrato. Word of mouth has succeeded as marketing and proves to be the best form of advertising. “A-list” players from many genres have gotten their hands on this hand built and individually signed work of art, including Tom Petty (Heartbreakers), Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Jimmy Buffet, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and Jason Isbell, to name a few. Kent assesses the diversity of the musicians playing his instrument, “The wall of fame is great, and I am grateful, but these young indie artists who are playing the Dobrato are intriguing – incorporating unique styles with alternate tunings in a more textural kind of movement. And the guys that kill on the Dobrato are the working musicians that gig nine nights a week – really inventive players exploring new creative territory.”

legacy

As Kent approaches his seventh decade, he contemplates the legacy of his creation, “I prefer to keep the package – the vibrato b-bender with the resophonic guitar (as opposed to selling the mechanism separately for use on other guitars). The plan was to build the first Dobrato and the last Dobrato and ride into the sunset. I have spent zero on advertising and I have remained under the radar.” At this point, Wikipedia doesn’t mention Kent’s apparatus in the B-bender section. “I’m less interested in certain people who might be drawn to it. But the guitar enthusiasts know about it and enjoy it. It’s been successful and I still enjoy it. This latest build (adding up to about 500 built) is honestly the culmination of everything I’ve learned along the way, and I’ve never built anything better.”

“The plan was to build the first Dobrato and the last Dobrato and ride into the sunset. I have spent zero on advertising and I have remained under the radar.”

Identifying one of his fondest moments, Kent shares an experience about multi-Grammy winner Jason Isbell, “Jason sent me tickets to see his show at Red Rocks (famous outdoor amphitheater near Denver). He gave us backstage passes and he couldn’t have been nicer, genuine and we had a noticeable mutual respect for each other. I showed him some things he could do on the bender that he wasn’t aware of. The Dobrato inspired him to write “If We Were Vampires,” a Grammy winning song. I climbed to the top of the theater to get a broad perspective, and there was a full moon. Jason pulls out the Dobrato and plays Vampires solo, and I got the shivers. If I could put that in a bottle – a proudest moment, seeing it in action – and it sounded ******* great!”

“Trevor is an exceptional realtor and all around great person. Trevor was consistently available and eager to show us properties through Zoom in Crested Butte.
