There are many neighborhoods in Boca Raton that may interest you...but first, you should consider which real estate professional you want to work with and develop a relationship with. As a Buyer you should only be using an Exclusive Buyer Agent ( EBA). An EBA does not LIST any properties and has a fiduciary relationship with JUST THE BUYER. They never have a conflict of interest, never represent the Seller and are not transactional agents who work for themselves and do not have the buyer best interests as their motivation. To learn more about Exclusive Buyer Brokerage visit my website at http://www.OptimaProperties.com, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents ( http://www.NAEBA.org), or the Florida Association of Exclusive Buyer Agent ( FEBA.org)
Florida Brokerages that have Listings with obligations to market and sell properties are known as "Transaction Brokerages". A Transaction Brokerage is simply a "facilitator" of a real estate transaction and by state law, does NOT provide Fiduciary Representation, Total Loyalty or Full Disclosure. These are all elements of an Agency / Agent relationship.
A Buyer Broker / Brokerage and its Exclusive Buyer Agents represent ONLY Buyers. A Buyers Brokerage NEVER have contractual obligations to Sellers. They have no obligation to present properties in the best possible light or to get the HIGHEST PRICE price.
Once you find the right agent to work with you can then narrow down the areas you want to focus on based what schools you want to consider.

The beauty of the Oaks is that is like living in a country club, but with out the country club fees. There is a beautiful clubhouse and wonderful tennis program, which is a great way to get to know other parents in the neighborhood. The community is more family friendly than most....if you go through at Halloween, the decor and the community spirit is evident. Most of all, it's a beautiful place where all the homes are newer construction....2002 and newer, with pools, upgrades, water views, impact windows,e tc. And the schools are terrific, new schools, excellent ratings!
That's my personal opinion, mother to mother...I think you will like it very much.

I would not necessarily say that Jupiter is a better choice; just another option worth consideration. In Jupiter you will find less traffic and congestion, a healthy economy, unbelievable beach access, fantastic shopping and restaurants, wonderful schools and happy people everywhere you look. Take a peak at the link in my first response and you will get a good picture.
However, if your husband will be working in Boca and that job requires him being in the office on a daily basis I am sure he would not be to fond of the 45 minute commute and that is without traffic so Boca is probably your logical landing place. My job is to fully understand your needs, showing you the best options to meet your specific requirements and providing you answers to your questions and those that you may not ask so you can make a knowledgable decision and end oupwith a home that not only tugs at your heartstrings but also is a wise financial move.
I have been building and/or selling real property since I was a young lad and take great pride in what I do. I service the entire Palm Beach County area and know Boca and Jupiter each very well. If I can be of assistance to you and your family in any way please let me know. I have plenty of references that I would be very happy to share with you!
Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional I am a call or an e-mail away.

I am also from the Northeast. I have been living in South Florida for 18 years now.
If you send me your email address I can send you active listings that fit your needs.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with all fo your real estate needs.
Very truly yours,
It sounds like your children's education will be a big part of your decision making and for that you should be applauded. You will find when researching schools in Palm Beach County that three of the highest rated public systems will be in Boca Raton, Wellington and Jupiter. I am not sure how tied you are to Boca but if Jupiter is a possibility certainly worth exploration. You won't be close to the beach in Wellington but housing prices are very favorable and it too offers a high quality of life but inland a bit.
One of my favorite sites when it comes to school ratings is http://www.greatschools.org and if you have an iPhone check out their app which is also a fantastic tool. I love their site, use it often, and highly recommend it to my clients who are interested in finding the best schools for their children's education. GreatSchools profiles public, private and charter schools and has a great format for readers to leave comments. Besides their rating system the comment section is the best place to go to get real life feedback from children who attend the schools as well as their parents.
You might also want to check out the Florida Department of Education School accountability reports which are also a wealth of information and can be accessed with this link;
After doing your homework on-line I always recommend parents visit the school live and in person prior to making any purchasing decisions in that district and if you need assistance let me know as I would be happy to show you around. When looking for gated communities in your price range in Boca you will find that most of the opportunities will be located between the Florida Turnpike to the west and I-95 to the east. Not sure if a private country club lifestyle is in play but you have many options worth exploring.
Clearly defining your housing objectives considering size of home, number of bedrooms, how many garage spaces, size of yard required, private pool required, acceptable association fees, etc. is a great place to start. If you would like me to send you some current opportunities please feel free to contact e at your convenience and I will be very happy to put that together.
If you are not 100% tied in to Boca you might take a serious look at the Jupiter area. You might enjoy a brief article I wrote about the north county area and you can access it at the link below;
I hope this information is helpful and if I can be of service to you and your family in any way please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Always at Your Service,
