There is a special school election scheduled for March 10th asking the voters to approve a budget increase. Without the approval, there is some talk that 2 of the elementary schools could be forced to close. http://www.app.com/article/20090213/NEWS01/902130327/1004/NEWS01

We love Howell and many of the surrounding communities. Freehold Raceway Mall is close, and one of the best. Itâ€™s an easy jaunt to Six Flags, the Outlets and more. Anything you want, you can find on Route 9. There are many parks, with Turkey Swamp being one of the most sizeable and notable, including camping and riding. The beach is a reasonable commute, making shore and water activities easy for a day activity.
Come explore Howell and surrounding New Jersey areas.

The first step in buying a home is to meet with a real estate professional in their office and have a buyer consultation. At that time you and your agent will discuss your needs and wants as well as price range that you will be comfortable with. Also meeting at the same time with a mortgage professional is a good idea so that you are ready to take advantage of any great opportunities available to you.
It's great to look at picture on the internet, but a meeting with your buyer's agent is extremely important in achieving a smooth and successful home purchase.
If you are interested in my services, please call me or email so that we can set an appointment and I will be happy to help you.
Very truly yours,

As a full time agent, parent and resident of Howell, I can assure you this is a great place to live and raise your children!
Howell Township is 63 square miles and has many different communities to choose from.
Depending on your price range and criteria, there are many options and opportunities for you at this time.
Northern Howell is nice, homes tend to have more property and are spaced out. There are 2 newer schools in this section of town. Aldephia Elementary School, which is k-5 and Memorial Middle School right next door housing grades 6-8. There are also 3 other elementary schools as well , Griebling, Ardena and Land O' Pines with an additional Middle School, Howell Middle School North. There are many single family, condo's and townhouses for sale and priced realistically for this market.
Candlewood and Salem Hill are also very popular areas in town for home buyers. These homes are more centrally located in Howell and have Elementary Schools in their developments as well, such as Tauton, Newbury and Aldrich. Very nice homes with decent sized lots and reasonably priced.
Ramtown, is considered South Howell, bordering Brick and has close access to the Parkway. Also having elementary Schools such as Greenville and Ramtown. Children in this area of town attend Howell South Middle School. Very nice homes, may have smaller lot sizes and larger developments.
The High School districting in Howell Township is a little more complicated. Howell is part of Freehold High School Regional District. A high ranking, sought after school district. But, not all of Howell students attend Howell HS. Depending on the area of town you live, you could be districted for Howell, Freehold Township or Colts Neck High Schools. You would need to check and confirm with Transportation before purchasing if your preferred a particular HS as these do change from time to time.. Also, each High School has different specialties such as Pre-Law, Pre-Med, Journalism, Gifted and Talented, World Languages, the list goes on...if your child is interested in any of the specialities these schools have to offer, they are allowed to test out for them. If accepted they will be bused to and from school, Marlboro, Manalapan and Freehold Boro HS are part of the district too.
Sports programs are awesome here and parents go above and beyond to provide beautiful, clean facilities for our children. There are many other activites your children can take advantage of. We take pride in our town and all it has to offer.
