Hi Erin,

What brings you to PA? Texas is one of my all time favorite states! :)

As a newcomer to the area, I would take some time to explore the neighborhoods before you decide to settle anywhere. Roxborough/Manayunk are great neigborhoods.

Are you looking to be in Philadelphia or have you thought about looking into the surrounding suburbs?

I would be more than happy to talk about the different neighborhoods and set up some showings when you're in town all over Philadelphia just so you can get a feel for what is right for you.

Feel free to give me a call or shoot me an e-mail whenever you have some free time and we can talk about your move to the City of Brotherly Love! :)

Roxborough is nice. Quite a commuter trip from Center City though. One of the safest, if not THE safest neighborhoods in Philly.

Andorra! It is nestled above Roxborough and very "suburban-like". Homes have nice front yards and large back yards and it is very safe and very quiet!! Lots of space around you -- like the suburbs in the city! Look at my home that is for sale:

Hi, Erin.

Welcome to Philadelphia!

I live and work in Roxborough, and would be happy to set up a time to chat with you about the area. In order to truly understand what you and your family need, our best bet would be to grab a cup of coffee (there's a great, local coffeehouse on Ridge Ave in Roxborough) and talk. This will allow me to share my knowledge of the area with you.

Once we both have a better idea on your needs (and wants), we can formulate a plan and set up some local showings. All of my contact information is listed below, so please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you.

Good Afternoon Erin, What brings you to our neck of the woods? Where or who did you hear about Roxborough from? I live in Roxborough and find it to be a really nice place to live. You are close to Center City Philadelphia but also close to Fairmount Park a more country setting. I would be more than happy to answer any and all your questions about the area.

Hope to talk to you soon

Hi Erin! what brings you out to the Philly area? There are a ton of good family friendly neighborhoods in and around Philly, and Roxborough is one of them. The main question for you though is how many kids do you have and how old? because if they are school age and you can't afford a private school then I would recommend looking outside of the city. It doesn't matter how good the neighborhood is, most public schools are bad. Please Email me at dschwartzman@cbpref.com and we could talk a little more. I would love to help making this move as smooth as possible.

Please let me know what kinds of houses you are looing for.
Roxborough is a great area. More family oriented above the hill, high elevation and close to nice Philadelophia suburbs of Plymouth Meeting and others.
Generally, considered a good school distric and property values started steadily rising again in recent years.
Please let me know what other information you are looking for.
I would be happy to work with you.
