The buyer’s agent on my team, Carrie St. Clair, and her husband decided to take a road trip across the US, Mexico and Central America. After a year of exploring, they took a couple of months to venture through towns that had always been on a list of places they were curious to live. Out of a lengthy list of places, they chose Grand Junction. I, of course, think she made a smart choice and I couldn’t be happier to have her as a part of my team!
Mesa County is located in the Grand Valley on the Western Slope of Colorado and when it comes to the style of homes, we have a little bit of everything. Every community offers something unique, but the common thread in the towns on the Western Slope is access to amazing landscapes and plenty of outdoor adventures without the crowds of the Front Range. This is a place where people wave and smile to strangers! We love this side of Colorado and all the communities that make it unique. Your Journey Begins Here…
