A LOOK AT THE PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY My Name Is … Conrad Steller, of Centennial – Real-estate broker, cyclist, longtime Centennial resident. Family roots: My family moved from New York to the Cherry Knolls neighborhood the day before my first birthday, in 1976, before Centennial existed. My parents still live in the same home they bought over 40 years ago. Having grown up here, and after starting my own family with my wife, Jennifer Steller (whom I met at a high school track meet), I couldn’t imagine raising my kids anywhere else. In 2005, with our first child born, my wife and I moved back to Centennial and now live only seven houses away from the home I grew up in. We now have five children and love the city and our neighborhood.

George and Della Porter of Highlands Ranch took one look inside a nice retirement community last year and said, “We’re not ready for this yet.” So, when it came time to get rid of their 4,000-square-foot house and move closer to their seven grandkids, they did what they’d done every other time they’d moved over the course of their marriage: started visiting new home areas to build something brand-new.

For 10 years, Charles and Barbara Pate, ages 86 and 70, had been thinking about moving out of the Highlands Ranch house they had owned since 1989, to get closer to family up in Erie.

The move required a single step, with every detail planned, down to having furniture in place with places to sit when they arrived through the front door.
