Recognized For Working in the Deaf Community

Recognized For Working in the Deaf Community

We are only into April and this year has already been full of surprises for me. After working in the real-estate business  for 25 years and working along side the Deaf Community, I was recognized by Realtor Magazine and 303 Magazine.

This is a great accomplishment, not only for me but for the Deaf Community. It brought to light how a lot of Deaf people get taken advantage of by Realtors and Mortgage Lenders because of the communication barrier. This is why I do what I do. I am one of the few bilingual ASL Agents in Colorado and I will do everything I can do make sure my deaf clients are taken care of and are getting the best service possible on all ends.

Please take time to read the articles and contact me if you need help buying, selling or refinancing.

The Cory-Merrill Neighborhood

Named after the schools in the area, Corey-Merrill was once part of the Town of South Denver (which had boundaries along the South Platte River, Alameda Avenue, Colorado Boulevard and Yale Avenue). It was founded in 1858 to be a dry town because its citizens didn’t like the saloons that had taken over Denver. The Town of South Denver included polo grounds south of Cherry Creek, the University of Denver and the Seminary which was surrounded by land that later became the Bonnie Brae, Belcaro and Cory-Merrill neighborhoods.

Today, the Cory-Merrill neighborhood is changing rapidly. Smaller homes built in the 1930s and after have been scraped, and large homes and multifamily duplexes have been built while maintaining some of the architectural integrity of the neighborhood. The five-year rebuild of Interstate-25 has finished, giving the neighborhood light rail service. Cory-Merrill’s central location between downtown and the Tech Center and the strength of it’s schools have made this a very desirable location.

Denver Colorado ASL Realtor For the Deaf Community

With over 24 years in the industry Maria Gallucci has been helping people in the deaf community who rely on ASL (American Sign Language) to buy, sell, invest, and finance real estate in all of Colorado.

The Bonnie Brae Neighborhood

Bonnie Brae is one of the most unique and attractive neighborhoods in Denver. It is predominantly a residential neighborhood with large family homes and  peaceful, tree lined streets.There is a rich diversity of architectural styles. Many of the homes date from the 1930s and 1940s, but there are some large new houses in the area. These new builds, which have replaced some of the ranch and Tudor style homes, are now considered characteristics of the neighborhood and are often highly sought after.

Bonnie Brae is a small community, which still feels something like a village despite having been surrounded by the city. There is an active neighborhood association that organizes social events such as the Bonnie Brae Wine Group. The neighborhood has a good selection of businesses that are within walking distance for most residents of the area. There are some particularly good cafes and restaurants in Bonnie Brae, as well as a range of useful stores. The Cherry Creek shopping center, Washington Park, and Downtown Denver can all easily be reached from Bonnie Brae, and this has made it a very desirable address. The famous homemade Bonnie Brae Ice Cream, Brae Tavern (some of the best pizza in Denver) are all anchors of this retail community.
