Relocation Guide

Every year a Relocation Guide is published with personal stories, amazing photography and highlights the reasons why we love this Valley. It’s a great place to start. Check it out here or we can send you a complete relocation package. Just send an email or give us a call. Check out our Explore Neighborhoods Page to learn more about the towns and neighborhoods of Mesa County in the Grand Valley.

Welcome to the Grand Valley

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!

“It wasn’t a decision we had to think about too long once we got here.  Standing at an overlook on the rim of the Colorado National Monument and driving to the top of the Grand Mesa, we realized how incredible and diverse the landscapes were here.  Still, there are lots of towns with great landscapes, we also wanted to choose a place that was packed with outdoor activities and easy access to participate, friendly people, four seasons and a mild winter, and some balance between cost of living and wages.  Grand Junction hit all of those marks.” -Carrie St.Clair

I grew up in Western Colorado.  I enjoy the sunny winters with snow on the ground twinkling like diamonds.  The ski resort, Powderhorn, is a short drive up the Mesa and cross-country skiing trails are found everywhere (on the Monument, on the Mesa, in the Canyons).  Spring brings all the color and melts the snow for hiking, biking and rock climbing. When the heat turns up in the summer, there are plenty of places to cool off such as the Colorado River – jump in for a swim, raft or fish.  The farmers markets and festivals bring a wonderful energy and people from all over. Palisade is 10 miles to the east and known for its wineries, peaches and sweet Olathe corn. The Grand Valley is a place to fall in love with the outdoors and learn something new.  If you don’t already own a mountain bike, you might – the trails are plentiful and growing. Fruita is just 10 miles to the west and on the map as a mountain biking destination. We have amazing parks, arts, entertainment (from local artists, galleries to the Grand Junction Symphony) and shopping. Are you thinking about relocating?  Get off I-70 and let us show you the Grand Valley. There is so much to explore and learn. If you are interested in real estate prices, cost of living or have questions, we are easy to reach and would be delighted to speak with you.
