Membership Application


Our Purpose: To jointly market and tour our listings, advertise at lower rates due to our size of membership, keep up to date with legislation, economics and local trends.

We meet every Tuesday at 9:00 am at the GJARA Office to market as a group. Your listings, rentals, buyer needs, and open houses can be entered on our private website, which will be shared at our marketing meetings, and emailed out to local GJARA REALTOR® members each week. If you are in attendance at our marketing meeting, you will be able to tell us about your listings, and answer any questions the other agents may have.

We tour our listings each Tuesday after the business meeting. If you are not in attendance, we will not tour your property. Please attend weekly meetings even when you don’t have listings on tour.

We offer educational events periodically, bring in local affiliates to share information to assist us in helping our clients, and work to promote Real Estate in Mesa County. We also have a private Facebook group where we can share listings and information.
