We are residents of Havertown and it is considered a great place to raise a family. Our Century21 Alliance office is located in Havertown and has been doing business in the area since the 80's. It is not uncommon for grown children to stay here and raise their families. As a resident I have not seen or heard of much crime but you would have to contact the Haverford Police Department for statistics. You can go to our website at http://www.bradyhometeam.com
and click on the schools link to get all the information about our school system. I think you will be pleased with the results. The area has a small town feel yet is only 30 minutes from downtown Philadelphia. We have some photos up at http://picasaweb.google.com/jb5440/PhillyPhotos#
for you to see the area. You can contact us with any questions. We would be happy to answer them. The local blog site is http://www.haverfordblog.com/cgi-bin/yabb2p4/YaBB.pl?board=H
Hope that helps you to get a feel for the residents.
