Looking to relocate to Denver....

Long story short, I live in Cleveland, OH and me and my family are looking to relocate to Denver. I currently own a small IT consulting company (Microsoft partner) and that is really the only thing keeping me in Cleveland right now.

I guess I have a few questions:

1. What are some great companies in the Denver / Colorado Springs / Boulder areas?

2. Anyone here have any contacts in the IT field?

3. Anyone ever just relocated on their own (I mean without a current employer moving them) and have any suggestions on what I should do and in what order? As you can imagine, the housing market here in Cleveland is complete CRAP. I don't know if I should put the house up, wait for it to sell, then blindly move without a job or look for a job first, maybe temporarily live in Denver on my own until we sell the house, then have the family join me out there?


Any help / suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.

Can't answer your questions on the IT biz, but if I was in your shoes I'd cash-out totally in Cleveland then hit the road west.

My suggestion, if you can do it, is to somehow delay the move.

One, you can't sell your house right now, and two, you've got a business and income.

If you can hold tight for just one more year, you can then take a reading on where the economy is, especially after the election. It would also give you some time, preferably in the summer, to spend a week in Denver and do some scouting (like Gen Custard should have done).

Is Gen Custard a member here? Did he accidentally wind up picking a house in the ghetto?

we may relocate from houston in a year or two. we plan to look heavily for jobs, put house on market. if and when it sells, we plan to move to denver area and just rent for 6 months while we find the exact place in town we want to live. we have enough saved, we could go for a couple months if both of us didn't have jobs, but we're hoping at least one of us does and that should pay all the bills. wife is a counselor in high school, so hopefully not too hard, cause she can teach if necessary.

Custard is a dessert.

Custer was a General.
