If you are still looking Pam, there are many gated communities to choose from. You can go to Mapleride or Oakridge on Griffin Road west of I95. You can buy a three bedroom now starting from $285,000. As you go west on Griffin, you can go to Monterra that just finished construction. Homes there start at much higher prices, though.
There are far more gated communities in Pembroke Pines and West Miramar and for lower values than what you can find in Hollywood, but I specialize in both markets so I can help you either way. Please contact me if you would like me to help you search for your next home.

Do you know anyone who needs real estate advice? Please feel free to contact me.
Yes, there are several. My favorite happens to be east of 95 called West Lake Village - it does have amenities and is suited for all. It also has manned gates and access is extremely difficult if one doesn't have a card or permission from a homeowner.
