Effective date: June 02, 2018
The purpose of the YourGrandValley.com is to provide useful information to local residents and potential homeowners looking to buy or sell a property in the Grand Valley. The website was created by Eve Roberts a Colorado real estate agent who works as a REALTOR® for Gold Compass Real Estate.
As a REALTOR®, I receive a financial commission when I help clients buy or sell real estate. I may also receive a referral fee for referring out potential clients to other real estate agents.
The data relating to real estate for sale on this website comes in part from the Internet Data Exchange (IDX) program of Grand Junction Area REALTOR® Association. IDX information is provided exclusively for consumers’ personal non-commercial use and may not be used for any purpose other than to identify prospective properties consumers may be interested in purchasing. All information Is deemed reliable but Is not guaranteed accurate.
Occasionally you will see contextual ads via Google Adsense on the site. I do receive financial compensation when you click on these ads. I do not endorse the products and services displayed on these ads, as it is out of my control as to what products and services are being displayed to the consumer. The compensation received from these click-ads do not influence the content, topics or posts made on yourgrandvalley.com.
The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely our own. However, as a real estate agent I am prohibited by law from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. I try to write accurate information with a hint of professionalism, but I am by no means a trained journalist. If you find inaccurate facts on the site, please let me know by filling out the contact form.
I love to receive comments on blog posts and social media posts, but I reserve the right to remove any negative or discriminating comments. I will try to post why a comment was removed, such as this: “This comment was removed due to inflammatory language that may be offensive to our readers and not reflect our company culture or values.”
If you ever have questions or concerns, please contact me. I strive to live with integrity, so I always welcome your input and constructive criticism.
