Yes, I am a foodie. I love all kinds of different food, from all over the world. From unique cultural cuisine to molecular gastronomy, eating is just plain FUN! If you are like me then Colorado is a great place to be, because according to Sunset Magazine, it is rivaled only by Portland as a foodie paradise (and the results still aren't quite clearly defined). So what does Sunset have to say about Denver?
"Comparing what it's like to live in food meccas Portland and Denver isn't so much like pitting apples against oranges. It's more like choosing between locally grown Fujis and organic Pink Ladies. Denver gets a lot of credit, between it's foie gras profiteroles and sprawling new food hall. And in Portland, a standout farm-to-table dinner is downright affordable, thanks to sales-taxless checks. But in both cities, the dining revolutions show no signs of slowing down, as vanguard chefs continue cooking up something special for the masses."- Allie Pape, Sunset Magazine, June 2017

Getting Around: The light-rail R line's new 22 miles of tracks connect downtown to the city's southeast. (RTD Baby! There is now service to DIA form downtown Denver as well. Hopefully soon it will connect us to all of the North Denver area, too, including Boulder. FInger's crossed.)
Gift to National Food Culture: Elvis's favorite sandwich, the Fool's Gold Loaf (a PB & J stuffed with bacon). YUM!!!
Coffee Shops per Square Mile: 9.9 (Between that and the crisp cool mountain air there is no excuse for a lack of energy here)

"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
