One of our friends in Parker told us that we should move there.


Have a great day and a most productive week as home buyers take advantage of record low mortgage interest rates.

I like the sound of this community...small town feel with a lot to offer. It looks like it sits at the base of the mountains???

John, thank you!

Barbara-Jo, there are neighborhoods but also lots of opprortunity for acreage.

Roy, many of my relo buyers want to move to Parker, it is very popular!

Debbie, actually it is not at the base of the mountain - southeast of downtown Denver.

Parker is not so populated, their estimate for 2012's population is just under 60,000 but located within 30-40 minutes of downtown Denver.     You have many housing options, condos, townhomes, cluster patio homes, detached single family in neighborhoods and property on acreage.
