Broker Spotlight Introduces Mike McGinnis with Promark Realty, Inc.

May 22, 2015
I grew up here and love calling Grand Junction and Western Colorado home. The lanscape is inspiring and it feels comfortable here, like a well worn pair of jeans. I have always felt that as a businessman I have a responsibility to do things that benefit not only my own family but also our community. This lead me to get my Real Estate license and I have been in this industry since 1983.

My beautiful wife Kim and I will be celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary in July. We have raised two amazing sons that we are very proud of and have the joy of being grandparents to twin granddaughters who will celebrate their first birthday next week!





We enjoy traveling, scuba diving and spending time at Lake Powell and Grand Mesa. Scuba diving has allowed us to travel to interesting parts of the world that Quick read more or view full article we would never have thought of visiting. Of course now our traveling is to visit Layla and Lucy who live in Lakewood Colorado.


                                     

As a family we strongly believe in being active in our community. We support both the adult and teen homeless shelters in GJ. I have friends with MS and my little sister is a 10 year cancer survivor. So, we support those causes as well. In the past I have served on the board of directors for Homeward Bound of the Grand Valley, a shelter here in Grand Junction and also on the board of Caprock Academy, a charter school in GJ. In addition, to provide support our industry I have served on many Realtor committees and am a past President of the local Board of Realtors.

I enjoy residential and small farm and land property sales. I hold the Accredited Land Consultant designation from the Realtor Land Institute. I grew up here and know the area. I have survived the ups and downs of our local economy and enjoy what I do.
