Why choose a town like Belfast for retirement? Have you vacationed up here and love the area? Unless you have spent time in any community that is so different from your current location/home, you could be making a big mistake. Do a taste test first, preferably in the off-season. ... more

For 23 years I have been a real estate broker in the greater Belfast area. I am the product of the Belfast school system myself and a former guidance counselor at the Belfast Middle School. When I was a child there were neighborhood elementary schools and consolidation began at grade 7 through high school.

Now, Belfast has a beautiful new consolidated elementary school for all neighborhoods on the Belfast harbor side of town and a separate elementary school on the East Side, across the bridge in East Belfast.

A busy mom with children involved in after school and weekend activities would probably prefer to be located in Belfast itself where car-pooling will ease the transportation burden, although raising children in the other towns of the school district could be the best choice for your children.
