We don't have to tell you how great this town is—you chose it! What you might not know is who to call to get your HVAC serviced. Or where to go when you've got a toothache. That's why we put together a handy guide of some of the best businesses and professionals in Aurora to help get you started. So you can worry less about stuff like hunting down a mechanic that won't try to swindle you and worry more about the fun stuff—like getting settled into your new community.

Contractor: Leeper Construction LLC

Aaron is the owner and does amazing work! Our back patio has a pretty big drop off to the left side but apparently it isn't big enough to mandate a railing. Well because I have kids I wanted something there. Aaron was recommended to us by his wife. He came out quoted us and then was out a few days later. I love how the banister turned out! I highly recommend Aaron and Leeper Construction LLC.

Love this place! My daughter is in their rec program and really enjoys it! After looking at three different programs, this is the place we chose. They offer a lot as far as class availability and different kinds of classes. They are super clean and are amazing with the other younger kids. It is also really fun watching the older competitive teams practice. My daughter really likes to see what they can do!

We love going to the Brick House for date nights! They have a great menu and wonderful beverage list. I LOVE THIER DEVILED EGGS! Pretty much everything we have tried there has been great. Because of COVID you have to make reservations before going but it is worth it.
