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 Congress Park Neighborhood

Other notable buildings include some Art Deco apartment blocks and the many grand houses along 7th Avenue. Part of the 7th Avenue Historic District falls within the neighborhood of Congress Park. This is one of the most interesting parts of the city, with a range of architectural styles including Victorian, Mission, Italianate, and Dutch Colonial homes.

The Capitol Hill Neighborhood

Capitol Hill is one of the most eclectic and interesting neighborhoods in the city of Denver. It has a diverse community and is particularly popular with young people who enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and the abundance of studio and one bedroom apartments that are to be found in the neighborhood. Most of the homes in Capitol Hill are condos or multi-family homes. Capitol Hill also had plenty of beautiful single family homes, many of which are among the oldest in the city. Some of the larger mansions have recently been converted into offices. The properties of the neighborhood are just as diverse as its population.

Capitol Hill lies just to the Southeast of downtown Denver, which means that its residents are within easy reach of work or entertainment in the busy downtown area. Despite its proximity to downtown, it has a very different character from the business center of the city. The Colorado State Capitol is also nearby. Most of the buildings in Capitol Hill were built during the 1920s, giving the neighborhood an attractive and historic character.Capitol Hill is one of the most charming neighborhoods in Denver, and it has a distinctly artistic flavor. Both Jack Kerouac and Allan Ginsberg made their homes in this neighborhood. The apartment buildings on Sherman Street, between 10th and 11th streets are known as Poet’s Row. Each of the apartment complexes are named after a different famous poet, such as Robert Frost or Emily Dickenson.
