a local Real Estate Professional who specializes in the Fort Lauderdale area can help you with that.
Unless you are a cash buyer, may I recommend contacting 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 house of your dreams here in Fort Lauderdale,
please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

I certainly understand your concerns as I am also a young woman with a dog. There are many great areas near the beach and downtown. Knowing your budget would help determine which would be best for your daughter and her dogs. If you are planning to rent, it may be a challenge getting a landlord to allow two large dogs but it's certainly not impossible.
I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and your daughter further about what you are looking for and your timeline. Please feel free to call, text or email me anytime, day or night.
I look forward to speaking with you!
