ABOUT THE MILITARY IN THE METRO DENVER AREA...
Aurora CO is home to Buckley Air Force Base and we welcome you. In addition to the Air Force and Air National Guard, there are Army and Navy personnel - even a few folks from the Coast Guard. There might be a few Marines, here too but I haven't met them yet! In addition to Buckley, metro Denver is a draw for many retired military people, as well as those in transition to other related private industries.

HOW MUCH HOME CAN YOU BUY?
Please fill out my contact form, and I, or one of my associates will get back to you within 1 business day. I can direct you to an experienced VA loan officer who can help you determine what price range and payment you qualify for and most likely provide a pre-approval letter quickly. Then we'll start working as a team to find you the best possible home for your needs and budget.
Once we're in touch, I'll set you up with a home search on our professional Matrix system. All other home search sites can get their information ONLY from our Matrix site, so this is the only link you'll need, and the only person you'll hear from is Marilyn. Your information is never sold or passed on. The commercial sites like Zillow are all phishing sites, which try to get your information and sell it to hungry licensees, plus their accuracy and timeliness is often less than ideal Many times, they show homes as active that have been sold and closed for months!
Best wishes, Marilyn Allen, Military Relocation Specialist
