Coral Springs is a wonderful family area and was highly ranked by Money magazine as one of the safest areas to raise a family. Coral Springs just won the Bainbridge Award, has excellent schools, over 40 parks & recreation sites, the Sawgrass Nature Preserve, easy access to the Sawgrass Espressway for commuting, and a top notch Aquatic Center. I personally moved to C. Springs 3.5 years ago and feel it was a great move for my three young sons. They attend the local Broward County schools that we're zoned for: Coral Glades HS and Sawgrass Springs MS. Coral Springs was designed for the residentail homeowner in mind...families first. My last 3 first time homebuyers have all bought in Coral Springs in the last few months, even though they started looking in other cities first. They all said the same thing: they got a good feeling when they were in Coral Springs and felt they got more for their money with excellent schools being a priority. Whether you need good schools or not, being in an area that has them is always good for resale value. I encourage you to check out http://www.browardschools.com

Our Mayor, Scott Brook, and the local commissioners have open office hours and meet regularly around town to address resident concerns. It's a very "hands on" town and one I think you'd be impressed with. In my own neighborhood of Cypress Run in west Coral Springs, we have over 8 policemen from different municipalities living here, and if they can live anywhere then I would say that's a huge vote of confidence for Coral Springs. Coral Springs is also going to be featured on "Property Virgins" as seen on HGTV. The show is about first time homebuyers and I was a Realtor consultant for the show. They worked with and filmed my buyers through their first time process. The Toronto film crew went all around Coral Springs filming, and kept telling me how impressed they were with the area and how nice everyone was. The episode will air the end of August so stay tuned! Should you have more questions about Coral Springs or the surrounding areas, please don't hesitate to call me. I would be happy to assist you (954) 650-3615.
