Hello CO moms! We're planning to move our family to Colorado this coming winter. We both have jobs that allow us to work from home, so we don't necessarily need to be tied down to the bigger city, but I do want to consider the possibility that one of us could, at some point, end up looking for employment in the Denver area. I was hoping you wouldn't mind me asking a few questions while we try to make our final decision about where we want to live.
What do you know about the rail line being built from Boulder to Denver? I've found some information about it online, but thought that you guys might be a better resource.
Where should I look for information on schools? In OH we have district and building report cards, but I haven't been able to find anything similar on any of the CO DOE pages.
We'll be coming in later this summer to scout for neighborhoods and check out Golden/Boulder/downtown Denver. What neighborhoods in Denver city limits would be good for families? We like being able to walk to things and we like older architecture. Right now I have real estate alerts on Stapleton (even though it's newer), Capitol Hill, City Park, Cheeseman Park, Highland, Park Hill, and Lowry. Any thoughts?
Finally, do you have any good realtor recs? We have one we've been working with, but he's really pushing us toward the outskirt suburbs, and we either want to be in the city or in the mountains.
Thank you so much for any insights you may have for me!
