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.

Have a safe 4th of July weekend!

The Edgewater Neighborhood

The Edgewater neighborhood, located on the western edge of Sloan’s Lake, is growing in popularity for young home buyers due to its accessibility to downtown Denver and affordable home pricing. Edgewater got its start as a cluster of fishing shacks in the early 1900s, but has since grown to a full town with its’ own style and energy.

Edgewater Park, overlooking Sloan’s Lake, is a great place for kids to play and hang out, for adults to meet and greet each other, and for dogs to run (on leash of course) near the water’s edge. The town’s mayor, city council, and business people feel that Edgewater’s time has come to create a true neighborhood character. Based on the location of the park and lake, and the well-attended Dragon Boat Festival held each summer on the lake.
