My and my family are moving there next week. We will be renting. I am so confused with all the communities surrounding Denver. We are Moving from Bakersfield, Ca. I have a job opportunity over there based out of the Park Meadows new mall as well as Stapleton and Westminster. Me and my husband are both in sales and do in home consultations, We both thrive on new home owners as well as owners renovating. I sell custom window treatments and my husband sales water treatment systems for the home. This requires us to drive alot, We want it easy to get from one side of town to the other as possible. We also would like to live in a nice side of town with Shopping nearby, Parks great schools for my 7th grader and 1st grader. For now we can afford about $1500 month. I have read and read everything I can but I know I really have to get there to judge for myself if we will like it, My husband LOVES snow and cozy fireplaces in the winter, so we are aware of the 4 seasons, Its just scary to move somewhere you have no idea to get around. We lost our home over here the economy is horrible. We are hoping bigger city may help us. Any suggessions or confidence would be much appricated?

I can understand this. My husband and I moved here just over 3 years ago. I left behind the only friends I had in this country, my job and a small town where everyone knew everyone, in MA.

I used Craigslist to answer group event ads and quickly met some new people, and recommend it. I suspect that having kids will also make this easier (and harder to some extent).
I live and work in the greater Boulder area. If you would like to meet for coffee or tea just to chat and get out for a while, I would be happy to meet you in Westminster.

(I am a Realtor and love the home buying/decorating business too)

Default Welcome to Denver

Denver is a fabulous place to live. You will not regret it! For the most part people are friendly. It has to do with what neighborhood you are in though! :-) Lone Tree is a beautiful part of Denver. Here is a link for you to get some info on Lone Tree. City of Lone Tree, Colorado - Official Website
Westminster is a great location as well. I am more familiar with this area since this is where I spend most of my time. It is close to lots of shopping and amenities. City of Westminster, Colorado. They offer homes in many different price ranges. Buying a home in Denver and the surrounding areas right now is a great buy. I know you said you will be renting until you find the right home. That is a good move. You need to get to know some specific neighborhoods before you move into them especially since you have little ones. Let's us know if you have any specific questions. Good Luck with your move.

I would say first of all, buy a map or look at a map online and get an idea where these places are that you will be working. It is a quite spread out area from Westy to Park Meadows. Then, look at the index of threads here on the foum. You will find a wealth of information about all these places. You will then have some idea of how to narrow it down a bit. Do not worry about schools, they are all "very good" to "great" in all the areas you referenced. You could find a pretty nice place considering your budget.

Sorry it didn't work out. Thanks for letting us know. So many times we hear from people who want to relocate, but never hear from them again. Best of luck to you!

hi dallice, i read your response to a post and saw that you were into the home buying-selling/home decorating business. I'm moving to Denver in 2-3 months and was wondering if you could give me any advice on how to go about finding a decorating job, any advice would be appreciated, as I don't know anyone in the area. THANK YOU!!!!
