In “10 Things to know before moving to Denver,” Atlas Associate Broker, Jennifer Reinhardt, gives advice on adjusting to Denver’s high altitude, local entrepreneur culture, cost of living, food/beer appreciation and more:
“Know that we love to work out,” says Jennifer Reinhardt, an associate broker with Atlas Real Estate Group. “There are people running and biking all over the city. We love to plan hikes and stair climbs. We have Red Rocks Amphitheatre, not just for concerts, but for running up and down the stairs and hiking in the mornings.” But, first, she suggests, adjust to the elevation. You’re going to feel winded quick, even if you are in great shape. To get in on the fun, try renting a bike from B-Cycle, the city’s bikeshare that has stations throughout downtown, and explore the city on two wheels.
Denver isn’t all brawn; lots of brainpower is here, too, and entrepreneurship is celebrated. “Denver is full of small business owners and start-up companies,” Reinhardt says. “There is a culture to network, share workspace and grow a company. We have a strong, robust economy.” In fact, Closetbox is based in Colorado and was started by a Denver entrepreneur.
