Help the community by answering this question:


Hi Anita, I live in Weston now and used to live in Miami before. For a family Weston is the best place to be, safe and quiet, no nighlife or busy tourism, great schools and many indians living here working at the software companies here. Miami is great if you are looking for a busier social life, and more things to do at night. The cultural diversity that you find in Miami is very unique, but Weston has many residents from Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil.

Hi Anita,

You will not find a bigger fan than Weston than I. As such, I always recommend Weston.

But I have found this has given other communities an unfair, indirect label as if they are "not as good".

You mentioned Pembroke Pines. Pembroke Pines for example in an internationally based magazine (the name escapes me at the moment) was ranked one of the best communities to raise a family anywhere in the world!

But why not Weston?

The point of view was that Pembroke Pines gives you all that Weston does (their schools are excellent as well), but is much more affordable.

And I could find supporting data for many other communities as well.

For example, Weston's schools are all rated A- and above, all of them, but none appeared on America's top 1000. But many schools in Coral Gables (within Miami Greater Area) were!

In other words, I still will recommend Weston, but if your personal, subjective opinion tells you that Weston isn''t for you (I know a lot of people who live in Coral Gables that don't like Weston's 'too perfect' look and feel for example), you are in luck because South Florida in general is a wonderful, beautiful place to raise a family.

Aside from some exceptions, as exist in all cities, South Florida is all about varying degrees of good-amazing, and very, very few below that.

My advice is browse around, be objective and then subjective.

Good luck!

As a Weston Resident and a professional Realtor, I can tell you that Weston is the best city to raise a family in South Florida, the best school district on the area, all schools are rated A+ . In addition to has a low crime rate, and a amazing park and recreation system. If you like luxury and safety for raising a family you will find it here. Yes it is true that the inventory in Weston is limited because is such a desirable place to live, in that case you should be looking on Pembroke Pines West that has a good school district too. I disagree with the advice of Miramar, unfortunately Miramar has a higher crime rate and bad school district, what I will never recommend to any of my clients specially with a family. On the other hand because your work location will be on Medley FL, I strongly recommend to check on Doral, is a really good option too.
In any of the cities that I just told you about buying will be a good investment.
Contact me for more info and for helping you on the search of he perfect house.

1. There is a very low inventory of houses in Weston right now and the few out there for sale are way overpriced, so your best options are going to be Pembroke Pines or Miramar. If you're in Doral, stay there before moving to Miami (the traffic won't get any better from Doral to Miami and you're closer to Medley from Doral)

2. If you contact an agent and he or she accepts to work with you, tell that agent that he or she is in violation of the Florida law thanks to your remarks about Asian Indian community.
