Denver, Then and Now | SSF’s Office is in the middle of both images
Our team of real estate professionals knows this city like the back of our hand. We started here in Denver in 1999 as the sales team for Downtown Denver’s Riverfront Park, a neighborhood developed out of the ashes of an abandoned rail yard by our sister company, East West Partners. Together, we transformed Riverfront Park from a bare swath of dirt into a thriving and sophisticated urban community of more than 2,000 homes — and sold them all.
In the years since our founding, we’ve grown into a full-service boutique real estate firm, serving neighborhoods all across the Denver metro area, from Wash Park to LoHi to Cherry Creek to Greenwood Village, we are city people. We love our urban playground just like we love our mountains, and we love putting that expertise to work for our clients and community.
