Jaryd Takushi’s professional career began in civil engineering where he consulted on projects for state, municipal and private clients. Many of his projects were related to auto, light rail, aviation, bicycle, and pedestrian transportation. As he began to create a real estate investment portfolio for himself, Jaryd realized he enjoyed the real estate business more than engineering, and the career switch was made. Since joining the New Perspective Real Estate team in 2007, he’s worked with dozens of engineers and non-engineers alike throughout many Denver neighborhoods. Jaryd is well educated on the transit oriented development plans for Stapleton, and knowing that the commuter rail would eventually run through the community, he invested in a home at Stapleton in 2005. Jaryd is passionate about helping others realize the great benefits of the walkable and sustainable transit oriented uses that are in Denver’s Urban Market.
