The City of Aurora is located just East of Denver and is in both Adams and Arapahoe Counties. Aurora has homes for every price range and type...from condos & town homes to single family and acreages. Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools both serve the Aurora area and Cherry Creek School District has received much acclaim over the last 10 years.

Both E-470 and Pena Boulevard offer access to DIA and make it an easy trip from anywhere in the city.

Founded in 1891, the city of Aurora was originally named Fletcher by its founder, former Chicago resident Donald Fletcher. The 1990s ushered in economic prosperity. However, closures of the military bases, which began with the closure of nearby Lowry Air Force Base, threatened the city's well being.  In 2000, Aurora's population had increased to 292,393 residents.  In 1995, the U.S. Congress targets Fitzsimons for closure. That same year, officials with the City of Aurora, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and the University of Colorado Hospital present the U.S. Department of Defense with a plan to reuse the decommissioned base as a world-class medical campus. The Fitzsimons Redevelopment Authority is formed through an intergovernmental agreement. In 2000, Buckley Air National Guard Base re-designated as Buckley Air Force Base. By October 2004, the 1-square-mile life sciences city at Fitzsimons is home to the University of Colorado Hospital and Health Sciences Center, Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute, the Nighthorse Campbell Native Health Building, Research Complex I and Colorado Bioscience Park Aurora, with more to come.

Broomfield, Colorado sits just Northwest of Denver, on the way to Boulder. Broomfield offers many attractions...it is just minutes from the foothills, beautiful views from many areas of the city, many parks and lakes, close proximity to the growing tech center of Boulder and a limit on the number of new homes being built each year. Because of this, Broomfield has seen a rise in home prices and fewer homes are on the market.  The Broomfield city council voted unanimously to limit to 300 the number of new homes that may be built each year in their city limits. This has had both a positive and negative effect on residents as prices have increased, but availability of affordable homes had decreased. Between 2001 and 2002 the county jumped 7% giving it the status of the 7th fastest growing county in the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
