Some great areas to think about that may meet some of your parameters are:
Whitter, Berkley, Sunny Side, Tennyson, Baker, Uptown, Sloans Lake, Berkley Gardens and Park Hill. These are just a few that come strait to mind.

I would be happy to provide more specifics about each area and where they are if you would like.

Any direction you go, welcome soon to Denver!

Hi Henning!

I think the best approach to finding you an up and coming neighborhood for young families would be to have a conversation in person or over the phone with a real estate professional, so that they can ask you specific questions about your wants and needs.

Being a Colorado native, I have seen Denver transform over the years and the city has a lot of great "Up and Coming" neighborhoods, but choosing the perfect one for you will all depend on your preferences and where you will be working.

I hope that helps!

Hello Henning,

There are many great neighborhoods and schools in the metro area. Close proximity to ones job is very important. What side of town will you be working in and then we could narrow it down from there?

areas are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. Research schools and areas on your own, perhaps the links below may be of help...

There are more than a few exciting neighborhoods to check out in the Denver area! The public school systems in Denver, Douglas, Jefferson and Arapahoe counties are mostly ranked well and the private schools are excellent too.

Your desired price range will help create a more succinct short-list of neighborhoods to consider. There are more than a few transitional pockets in Denver which are seeing a lot of renovation happening. You'll also find neighborhoods available for young families who prefer to purchase newly-built homes. The biggest challenge you'll likely face is a fast-moving real estate market. Most homes sell quickly and the buying demand is strong.

When I work with out-of-state buyers like yourself, it's really helpful for me to know more about your family's personality. This way, I can match up the coolest areas with whichever lifestyle you all truly desire. Plus, there are a few other deciding factors to add into the buying equation. These answers will likely dictate which locations/neighborhoods can offer you the most for your investment.

All in all, Denver has every kind of living style you can imagine so come on out and get ready to leave those Northeast winters behind!

What kind of home are you looking for? What's your budget? Do you want a neighborhood that is maybe similar to where you are living right now? Do you want walkable amenities?

There are fantastic schools all over the metro area. To get a better idea of what is out there, visit

Some neighborhoods to consider looking at: Park Hill, Montclair, Lowry, Stapleton, Hilltop, Bonnie Brae, Virginia Village, Wash Park, and Platt Park.

Let me know if there is anything else that I can help with.
