Heiden Homes Realty and Associates was founded in 2003 by Owner and Managing Broker Toni Heiden-Moran. Toni established the company (a Limited Liability Corporation) after serving as one of the top Realtors in Mesa County while working for locally owned companies and franchise operations in Grand Junction. Toni earned her real estate license in 1978, and is one of the most experienced agents in Grand Junction, with extensive knowledge of the real estate market in Colorado.
Heiden Homes Realty features 11 agents who offer services to buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate, from Durango to Denver. The company also has four agents in an Agent Referral program, designed for retired agents who retain an active real estate license and who refer clients to the main office. The company has added a Property Management branch, managing more than 30 rental properties.
Heiden Homes Realty is a three-time winner of the Best of Grand Junction Award in the Real Estate Agents and Managers Category, as named by the United States Commerce Association. The award from the national organization of businesses cited Heiden Homes Realty for community service and marketing efforts in Mesa County. Toni owned one of the first cell phones in the county (260-TONI), and continues to add new technology. From updating the company web site, to subscribing to four multiple listing services, to search engine optimization, to social media updates, Heiden Homes strives to use technology to help buyers and sellers. Newspaper advertising, marketing at local brokers meetings, and social events at the office are also an integral part of efforts to “reach out and touch people” in the community.
Toni belongs to several local organizations, including the Kiwanis Club of Grand Junction, the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, Independent Brokers Association of Mesa County, the Grand Junction Area Realtor Association, the Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce, Fruita Chamber of Commerce and volunteers at St. Mary’s Hospital. She is a member of the St. Joseph Catholic Church Parish Council, and helped broker the purchase of land for the church as a member of the St. Joseph Finance Committee.
Husband and co-manager Mike Moran is also active in the Kiwanis Club of Grand Junction, and is a past-president of the club. He is also an advisor for the Circle K Kiwanis Club at Colorado Mesa University, helping students stage activities to help young children and to make business contacts at the same time. Mike is a part-time instructor at CMU, a graduate of the Masters in Business Administration program and a member of the MBA Alumni Committee at the college. He is also active in the Independent Brokers Association and is a member of the St. Joseph Catholic Church Finance Committee and volunteers at St. Mary’s Hospital, delivering communion to patients. Mike’s background of 30 years in print and broadcast media as a reporter, manager and salesman helped establish many contacts with community leaders in Grand Junction and other states.
In summary, Heiden Homes Realty offers some large company dynamics that mesh with a local, family-friendly culture to help serve clients of various needs.
