Westminster is a beautiful suburb just northwest of Downtown Denver. With a population of about 116,000, it’s perfect for young families searching for a nice house with room to grow. Residents love the ample home sizes and outdoor spaces, which perfectly fit the Denver lifestyle. Westminster offers highly rated schools and plenty of shopping and dining, anchored by the Orchard Town Center. Westminster is home to the Adams County Fair and the Jazz & Arts Fest. Active families enjoy the many parks, golf courses, and miles of hiking trails, including the popular Big Dry Creek Trail.

Westminster is conveniently located between Denver and Boulder. Owners of Westminster luxury homes can enjoy the best of both cities, whether it’s cheering for your favorite local sports teams or enjoying the various cultural, arts, and entertainment events. It’s also a short drive from a long list of great ski resorts.

Broomfield is an upscale community of about 68,000 located north of Westminster. It’s roughly 20 minutes from both Boulder and Denver, putting its residents near all the great amenities offered by the two cities. Broomfield is large enough to provide everything residents need while exuding a unique small-town feel that makes it attractive to professionals and families.

Broomfield has an astounding number of parks and green spaces, estimated at 8,000 acres, and includes miles of trails for hiking and biking. In the summer, it’s just a short drive to whitewater rafting and kayaking on nearby rivers, and in the winter, it’s a quick jaunt to some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the state.

The 1stBank Center brings sporting events as well as concerts to the area. Like Westminster, Broomfield residents are close to all the sports action and natural beauty of Boulder and the urban amenities of Denver.

Cherry Creek

Cherry Creek is a small, affluent neighborhood southeast of Downtown Denver that offers a quiet, comfortable lifestyle. The population of just under 13,000 reside in some spectacular Denver luxury homes.

Despite its small size, Cherry Creek is one of the premier destinations in the entire Denver metro area for shopping and dining in its large commercial district. The centerpiece is the Cherry Creek Mall right along Cherry Creek, which houses upscale fashion boutiques, fine dining, and top department stores. The rest of the business district is home to locally owned businesses, cafés, bars, and a few premier art galleries. Residents looking for some exercise can head to the Cherry Creek trail for hiking and cycling.


Hilltop is another small, well-to-do neighborhood offering Denver luxury homes with nice yards and tree-lined streets. It’s a community of about 9,000 residents located just east of Cherry Creek and is almost exclusively residential. Hilltop is popular with affluent professionals and young families who enjoy going to the many parks for exercise and enjoying the outdoors.


Arvada is a sprawling city of nearly 125,000 residents on the western edge of the Denver metro. Rich with history and a variety of real estate options, Arvada is regarded as a beautiful place to buy. Arvada was an important figure in the development of the Colorado Central Railroad, and its neighborhoods range from historical to luxurious, including golf course living. It has many parks and easy access to outdoor recreation beyond the city.


Part of the Denver Highland neighborhood, LoHi is located just across highway I-25. According to Forbes, it’s ranked as the “17th Best Hipster Neighborhood in the Country,” featuring dozens of festivals throughout the year, eclectic bars and restaurants, and the third-highest number of coffee shops per capita in the state.

An artsy district that bursts with diverse opportunities and live music around every corner, living in LoHi (“The Lower Highlands”) offers residents vibrant energies and unique experiences. LoHi is a family-friendly area, home to dozens of well-maintained parks in a walkable community. Enjoy a drink on a rooftop bar and make a local coffee shop part of your go-to morning routine: you’ll find it all in LoHi!
