Hal Heath and Janell Gear, both broker owners and members of Metro Brokers Grand Junction, received awards during a recent annual meeting for Metro Brokers Inc. in Denver.

Heath, broker and owner of Heath & Co. Realtors, was named top producer in residential sales for the Western Slope for 2014. Heath was among the original founders of Metro Brokers Grand Junction in 1995 and has worked as a real estate broker in Grand Junction since 1983.

Gear, broker and owner of Gear and Associates Realty, received the community service award for the Western Slope. Gear has been a member of the Metro Brokers Grand Junction office since 2007. She’s also a member of the Mesa County Women’s Network Group and has served as president and program director.

Mike McGinnis, broker and owner of Promark Realty and a shareholder in Metro Brokers Grand Junction and Metro Brokers Inc., also represented Metro Brokers Grand Junction at the meeting.

Metro Brokers Inc. ranks among the largest groups of independent real estate companies in Colorado. “Our business is a little different than others,” McGinnis said. “With the strength and support of an industry leader, Metro Brokers Inc., we have every resource available to us. But we are not limited by the traditional corporate real estate environment. We are our own business owners. We make our own decisions and have our own areas of expertise.”
