Agents have to be careful when recommending one area over another. I've attached a link to the AZ State School Report card. You can look through the site, compare districts or even schools and decide for yourself which schools meet your criteria. Based on that, you can select neighborhoods which surround the schools you like best.
I hope you find a great agent to help you find a great house.

You should also consider Prescott. The Prescott area has slightly more people than Flagstaff. There is low crime here. There are great schools here. Much less snow and it's a bit warmer in the winter. Really, I think Prescott's elevation (5,300 feet) is the perfect elevation for Arizona (Flagtaff sits at 6,900 feet). Any higher and there is too much snow and it's too cold in the winter. Any lower and it's too hot and not enough of the four seasons. Call me if you are curious about Prescott

I am currently ungoing treatment for Brain Cancer and not all that active in Real Estate at this time. Hoever my only liting is my own home. We are empty nester and down sizing anyway. Our house is one block from one of the better elementary schools in town. We are also in the south west end of Flagstaff, which is close to NAU, the airport and other more recent commercial development and shoping. The house is jusst under 3500 sqft, 5 bed / 3.5 bath. We just redued the price to $449,900 last week Our neighborhood is generally 1/4 to 1/3 acre lots. Ours is just under 1/3rd. If you are looking for more space, the outlying areas north and east would be your best bet, but more land is more money. Please send a response with more detail of your price range and other desires so that I can taylor your search more inline with what you need. rcook@cbnarico.com is my email for my Real Estate identity. Thanks!

School Information

Quality of education is one of the most important factors when moving to a new area. That is why full school report cards are available here for all areas.

When you say "room to roam," do you mean in Flagstaff's great outdoors, in a large house, or in your personal yard space? A good agent representing you will pin down your wants and needs and then show you options so you can make good choices. There area many school options in Flagstaff and depending on you much you want to be involved in transportation (or, if your kids are old enough, how much they want to ride their bikes and the city bus line), all options are open. Visit my website for links to school information -- though there is something new all the time. For example, by next Fall, Basis will have a charter in Flagstaff. First stop, a visit with me or one of my colleagues. Next stop, visit with mortgage lender to set your financial limits. Then the investigation of neighborhoods, schools and homes begins.

Flagstaff is such a great area in that it does offer lots of room to roam no matter where you live! But if you like personal space we do have acreage properties availalbe. I'm a big hiker, so love how much "roaming" Flagstaff offers and would be happy to share fun trails and outdoor activities with you! As a Realtor, we can't steer you away or toward certain areas, but I would be happy to get you all the information you need on schools so that you can make a decision that's best for you. When are you coming to Flagstaff and where are you moving from?
