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 Polo Grounds Neighborhood

In 1909 the Denver Country Club formed a polo team called the ‘Freebooters’ and began playing on the grounds of the Denver Country Club. Understandably, the club golfers had a bit of a problem with this use, and in 1920 Ira and Albert Humphreys, Lafayette Hughes, and Laurence Phipps incorporated the Polo Club and purchased 160 acres of property for $62,000. Lafayette Hughes created a Polo Club Home Owner’s Association in 1946 in order to protect the remaining residents and to promote their continued privacy and seclusion. Following his death in 1958, 34 acres were sold to create the Polo Club Place Subdivision. By 1977, the former site of the polo club stables were being developed as condominiums and custom built homes.

Today it remains one of the most exclusive and secluded neighborhoods in the city in spite of its proximity to Cherry Creek and Downtown. Interesting that an unassuming, plain brown wooden fence along University Boulevard is now what helps Polo Club maintain its long standing goal of privacy.
