I grew up in a charming handcrafted home on 35th in the West Highlands. 

Built in 1922 by the owner of a local lumber yard.  It seemed like every house in the neighborhood was built with it's own character and charm.  Reflecting a love of community that has been revived and is now churning strong.  Making the Highlands and West Highlands the premier home buying and investing area. 

Here's a snapshot of my childhood home as it sits today.   

35th and Federal my Childhood Home

The Highlands has endured many economic changes and seen the coming and going of new and old technology.

Here's a snapshot of passengers enjoying Denver's electric bus and trolley system.  This is the corner of 16th and Boulder St in the Highlands Neighborhood in 1942.

The Olinger Mortuary is nearby.  

Many may recognize this area today by the outstanding treats found at Little Man Ice Cream or maybe you've impressed a first date at swanky Linger?

A lot's changed since 1942~
