Heather,

Congratulations to you and your husband on the job offer!

Here are a couple of resources that should help you choose the perfect neighborhood for your family:

1. Neighborhoods - http://luxurylivingfortlauderdale.com/neighborhoods/

2. School Ratings - http://www.greatschools.org/ (Great Schools provides such invaluable information for parents that we have included their data on our website. When you find a home you like, you can view the Great Schools information for schools in the area.)

Please let me know if you have questions or need more information. I would be honored to have the opportunity to help you find a new home for you and your family.

Hi Heather,

The best public schools around Pompano Beach are located in Boca Raton, Coral Springs and East Fort Lauderdale. Please let me know what price range you are looking in to that I can narrow down the school search.

Thanks,

Heather.Ehlschide,

Per your question on Trulia > Best family neighborhood? My husband has a job offer in pompano beach and we are looking into relocating. Safety and schools are my number 1 priorities.

* 1st point of order is to know where (east, west, north, south) in Pompano Beach you husband will be working.
* 2nd criteria is the age-grade level of schools to be considered,
* 3rd consideration is your peceived length (in years) of residence here.
* 4th input is financial, as budgeted, and any employer contributions from a relocation package.
* 5th filtering your wish list versus your options, which we will enumerate together.

HELLO HEATHER;

DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU'RE QUALIFIED TO PURCHASE IS THE MAIN FACTOR AS TO WHERE YOU MAY WANT TO PURCHASE IN POMPANO AND ITS SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE IS ONE GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD IN POMPANO THAT COMES TO MIND HARBOR VILLAGE, IT'S A GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD LOCATED EAST OF US1 FROM ATLANTIC BLVD TO 14TH ST STREET CAUSEWAY. HOWEVER, THERE ARE GREAT WATERFRONT NEIGHBORHOODS IN TAMARAC THAT AREN'T THAT EXPENSIVE WITH A RATED SCHOOLS. MY FIRST SUGGESTION IS TO FIND A GOOD MORTGAGE CONSULTANT THAT WILL BE ABLE TO TELL YOU AFTER FURTHER EXAMINATION WHAT PRICE RANGE YOU'LL FIT INTO. AND ONCE YOU HAVE A LETTER OF PRE-QUALIFICATION, YOU THEN CAN BETTER PICK THE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT HAVE THE BEST SCHOOLS FOR THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE TO SPEND. I WORK WITH A GREAT MORTGAGE CONSULTANT AND IF YOU'D LIKE MORE INFORMATION, YOU MAY FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME @

Hello Heather,

As a longtime resident of Fort Lauderdale I believe that Rio Vista, Victoria Park, The Landings, and Coral Ridge are excellent choices to raise a family. The schools are excellent, and there are some fantastic private schools to choose from as well. Some of these neighborhoods are a little farther to Pompano...

If you are not working with a Realtor I would be more than happy to drive you around and explain each neighborhoods and elaborate on the pros and cons of each.

Have a great day!

Hi Heather:
Many Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale locations are great for safety and schools. Other locations are Coral Springs, then a little further but great are Weston, Cooper City, Parkland. You can click on http://www.BrowardSchools.org to check out the grades and the rating of all the schools.
If you wish to actually receive properties, I would need a little more information. Let me know.
Thanks,
