If unfamiliar with the area, take the time and visit more than once; check out demographics on your own, real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not in specific neighborhoods.

Unlike NY (as far as I know), most areas in South FL are diverse, incld. the Town of Weston.

Hi simari2jos,
Yes, weston is a City with a diverse community and not only that but with one of the best schools in Broward County (all of them are rated A).
It is a safe, clean and pretty place to live.
If you are starting a family or have young kids, you will find everything for them to learn and practice sports.
In Weston you will find a wonderful country club, at the YMCA you'll see parks with diferent fields of soccer, baseball, football basketball, cheerleading, roller hockey, baton twirling, a community center and monthly outdoor movies. There is also golf, tennis, karate, dance, gymnastics and an art school.
It is very easy to get in and out because the highways like I-75, I-595, Sawgrass express way are right there and just a few exits away from the florida Turnpike.
Since i came to Florida 13 years ago i have been a proud Weston resident and my kids have grown here.
You can also find more information about Weston in the City of Weston site

Let me know if I can help you with the search for your new home. It would be my pleasure to be there for you.

Hello,

you received lots of feedback from local real estate professionals who know that area very well. Each one of them is able to answer all your questions you have about Weston. You should pick one of them to help you find your new home.

Unless you are a cash buyer, the first thing you should do though is to contact a lender in regards a mortgage loan pre-approval.
With a pre-approval letter in hand you can start your shopping for homes - real estate agents and sellers will take you much more seriously when they see you have your mortgage funding in place.

If there is anything I can do to pre-approve you for the homes of your dreams, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. My office is located in Pembroke Pines, which close by Weston.

Dear Simari2jos,

Hi! Weston is a great city with all "A" schools and one of the lowest crime rates in Broward County. The residential market is made up of villas, town homes, condos, and single family home off all differnt sizes and price ranges. Most of the communities inside of Weston are 24-hour guard gated communities. Many of the communities offer a community pool and a tot lot.

Weston has a stunning country club, golf, tennis, YMCA, library, beautiful parks with football, baseball, basketball, soccer, cheerleading, roller hockey, baton twirling, a community center and monthly outdoor movies. There is also karate, dance, gymnastics and an art school.

I have lived in Weston for 18 years. It is beautiful and has a park like setting with georgous landscaping, beautiful trees, freshly planted flowers, winding roads, and bike paths aligning the roadways.

Weston Florida has many convenient grocery stores, boutiques, shops, restaurants, a movie theatre, pet store, and gas stations.

Weston is surrounded by major suitable expressways The beaches are 20 minutes away.
Please let me know if I can help you with a home.

Hi there,

Stephanie (below) is absolutely correct. Weston is wonderful place, I would add - mainly for families. We (I am a resident of Weston) have some of the best public schools in South Florida. We have most any sports children may be looking to play. We have many parks, and places to run around, and bike lanes and sidewalks throughout the City. There are theater, singing groups, music, and art classes in or around the area should your children be interested in performing arts.

Because the City was pre-planned as a community in and of itself, you definitely get the "community feeling" of "suburbia." Generally speaking, children and parents feel very safe. I believe theft crimes to be very low, and violent crimes (injuries) to be almost nonexistent, however, for more accurate information, you can contact the Weston Broward Sheriff's Office for safety information.

If you are coming down without a family, there may be other places that are more "exciting" and "adventurous" for singles or couples not yet ready to start a family.

Other useful information - Depending on where your source of income/work is, Downtown Ft. Lauderdale and the Ft. Lauderdale Airport and Port Everglades is approximately 15 miles East of Weston. The closest beaches are approximately 20 East of Weston. Travel time to the above is approximately 20-30 minutes in non-peak travel times.

Downtown Miami is about 35 miles Southeast of Weston. Miami International Airport is about 25 miles Southeast of Weston. The infamous South Beach is approximately 35-40 miles from Weston. Travel time to all of the Miami places are approximately 45 minutes or under in non-peak (rush hour) times.

I was born and raised in Miami, and moved to Weston in 1998. I am quite familiar with South Florida. In addition, many of my family members are or have been in the military, so I understand the intricacies of relocating, and can anticipate what your needs may be.

Should you have any other questions, please feel free to email me directly, or contact me via my information below

Good luck.
