Cherry Creek (near the mall,) Hilltop, Cherry Hills are all upper class neighborhoods.

What are you looking for in a neighborhood and why.

Default Move to Castle Rock or Lone Tree

Move to Lone Tree if you can...very nice lifestyle, upscale and good schools...quite safe and has lots of nice creature comforts...Castle Rock is a nice alternative to Lone Tree...Highlands Ranch is too sprawly and cookie cutter. Cherry Creek is great if you like a more urban lifestyle. It is nice, upscale but busier. Good luck

I am a teacher and a mom and have lived in this area for 13 years. Littleton is incredible--the schools are great and the neighborhoods are lovely. The houses are a bit older though, so Highlands Ranch right nearby could be great for you. However, I don't think the schools are quite as good.

Stapleton is wonderful as well, although it costs significantly more to live there. It is FULL of babies, dogs, and young couples and has a bit of a more urban attitude to it, although it has ALL of the amenities of a suburb. It's really cute and you definitely shouldn't make any decisions before seeing it.

I have friends (moms) who live in all three areas and would be happy to share more info with you if you'd like!!!

Castle Rock is a lot more personal and has that small town feel. You will make many friends and see them all the time. Its a great town and feels far removed from Denver and the burbs, but you will be 15 minutes from the tech center and 35 minutes from downtown.

Are there any places for rent that you might suggest in the Bradburn area? I'd like to move there with my 2 children by April. Also would it be really difficult to get approved without a job? My intention is to find one once I'm there.

My Husband, son and I just moved here from Tucson, AZ. We have a 17 month old. My suggestion to you would be to rent until you decide where you want to buy. We are on the hunt for a house and so far are VERY pleased with Southeast Aurora. The schools are top of the line and some in Cherry Creek Schools, new homes and TONS of families. Having the Southlands outdoor mall so close is wonderful.
I have found that you will find two types in Denver…those that love the North side and those that love the South side. This is why I highly suggest you rent for 8-12 months.
My biggest challenge in Denver is the traffic. I know that some people from higher traffic areas (Cali) would say this is nothing…but my GOD. No car pool lanes, only 3 lanes, it goes on and on.
