Hola Patricia,

La pregunta mas importante a contestar es: cual es tu precio limite. Basado en ese precio es que se busca la mejor opcion de casa y la vecindad. Por favor comunicate conmigo por medio telefonico o correo electronico para hacer una consulta.

Hi Patricia,

There are a lot of great neighborhoods in the central florida area and it all really depends on what you are looking for in a home and what your price range is. I would need a little more information to find the perfect fit for you.

Let me know if I can be a help to you.

There are many great family friendly communities in this part of Florida but the safety of a particular community can never be guaranteed so I would always encourage caution. If I could speak with you regarding other pertinent factors such as schools, employment, and community preferences I would be better able to help you make a wise decision. Meanwhile, you can go to the website: for community policing and neighborhood statistics.

I am a full time real estate agent in this area and I would love to offer my services with the promise that
YOUR best interests will be protected.

Check out Harmony and Celebration in Osceola County. Great places to raise a family.

Orange County Sheriffs department offers crime stats on their website. You can get general information as well as request the crime stats for specific addresses.

I visit the area often. I enjoy breakfast or lunch at "TooJays" you wil enjoy it.

Good Morning, Particia!

My name is Padgett McCormick. I am a Broker-Associate for Kelly Price and Company in Winter Park, Florida. I don't know where in Florida you have moved but I find the website very helpful. It is a free website that allows you to enter an address at the top left corner of the screen and see all of the criminal activity in the surrounding area. These crimes are coded so you can see whether the crime was a theft, breaking and entering or robbery, etc. It also lists the sites of sexual offenders. I hope you find it as helpful as I have.

I love the Dr. Phillips area. Great schools, neighborhoods, shopping, dining and of course close to everything! Are your daughters going to Dr. Phillips High, SouthWestern Middle, or elementary school?
I just found a great home for a family that has relocated here from NJ and they love the area.
I'd love to be able to do the same for you and your daughters.
Email me at your earliest convenience and we can get started on finding your forever home!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Patricia, There are many great neighborhoods around the Central Florida area. I have moved several times around the country and understand the difficulties in moving with children, getting settled and reestablishing yourself and family. I live in the Lake Mary area and love that area. I have family that live in the Dr. Phillips area and they are very happy there as well. Please email me and let me know your needs and price range and I can help you get established in a community that I know you and your family will enjoy.

Hi Patricia,

There are several great areas of Orlando... I see that you are currently in Dr. Phillips. This is a great area, however it is near the theme parks, so it is quite trafficed, which always creates higher crime rates. You should look into Seminole County, areas such as Lake Mary, Winter Springs, Maitland, or Oviedo. All of these areas are far enough away from the theme parks, that the crime seems to be lower. As well, most seminole county schools are A rated. Check out my website or give me a call if you want to talk more.
