It looks like my husband and I will be moving to Grand Junction this year with my two children. Can anyone recommend some respectable, honest, and experienced realtors in the area?

Default Silly Me!

Excuse my newbie-ness! I just found out the rule of no personal name posting.

If you have any recommendations, please send me a direct message. Thanks!

You know a lot of people here are selling their homes at discount without using realtors. If it were me, I'd deal with the homeowner directly and bypass the realtor. There's a bunch of for sale ads on craigslist and in the local newspapers.

However, if you really feel like you need to use a realtor, xxxxxxx is a good person. He used to own the local Remax. He works on his own and manages many houses in the area. I don't know if he wants his cell phone published on the internet for anyone to see, so I'll send you a direct message with it.

Are Sellers selling their homes without a local Broker or just marketing their homes?

Run yourself over to the Real Estate forum and see all the trouble buyers and sellers find themselves.

Someone brand new to the area needs more attention from a local, knowledgeable, experienced broker (there are more questions, and their experience with local customs are nil) than a buyer from the next block.

80skeys - I'll make sure to go have a look at those ads but I'm really thinking I would like to deal with a realtor. I'm not a very experienced home buyer (we've only purchased one home) and I'd really like to have someone who knows the ropes guiding me through the process. To me it's worth the money so that I don't miss something or do something stupid. Is the realtor you know a friend of yours or are you a past customer of his?

2bindenver - Thanks for the advice, I didn't even know that forum was there. Looks like it could be a great place to learn more about the home buying nightmare...er, I mean process.
