Meet Jenna!

Jenna May

Broker Associate | Realtor®

Born and raised in Texas, and having come from a real estate-based family, I have real world experience and expansive knowledge in the industry. With my father being a contractor and multi-family developer in East Texas, you could say real estate is in my blood. I hold a Texas and Colorado broker’s license. Before starting my career, I attended the University of Texas at Austin, and was a race member of both the collegiate cycling team and USA cycling. 


After many back-to-back, adrenaline-pumping summers vacationing in Crested Butte, I asked myself the crossroads questions: Why am I living in Texas? I had fallen in love with the mountains, community and lifestyle. Within the following week, I made the full-time move to Crested Butte. It’s truly the best decision I’ve made yet. The outdoors component and mountain lifestyle that Crested Butte offers compliments my innate character, and made the transition feel effortless and organic.


Outside of real estate, I’m an avid cyclist and outdoorsman. Of course, living in the Butte, you almost have to be. As a sibling to a professionally-contracted cyclist in Europe, I’ve had the privilege of seeing the world from the unique view of my bike and have met the best people, including my lifelong friends, along the way. I’ve even biked across our great country and Canada- Now imagine putting that tenacity and motivation to work for you as your personal REALTOR®.


Each client is different and has different needs. I strive for quality and attention to detail while professionally and ethically protecting my clients interests from start to close, making their home buying and selling processes painless, understandable, and enjoyable. You can be confident and assured that you will only receive the most updated market and local area information. After the transaction process is long over, I truly know I have done my job to help others when the Crested Butte community and I gain a new neighbor and friend. I am fortunate that I am able to practice my passion for real estate in one of the most majestic places I’ve traveled, and I love my work!

Our experience was so good, when asked by a friend if we would recommend Jenna, we immediately said, "yes"! They found a condo they loved within days of contacting her! Thanks, Jenna!"

You’ve already found the Right Place. Now, Let’s get started Finding the Right Agent, and the Right Property!

Start Smart

Use technology and the Internet. No matter what some of the "older and more experienced" may tell you, you need the Internet to market in the real estate world today.

Price it Right

Activity in the first month of a listing is always the best, don't risk wasting it. Price too high, and scare off many buyers. Price too low, and you're leaving money on the table.

Hire a Real Estate Agent

Studies show that home sellers who use a real estate agent to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell the home themselves.
