Hi Jenn-

If I were you and looking to spend up to $1.5mm, I would look at Avon and West Simsbury first, then Glastonbury and forget about the others. (of course you will get more for your money in Higganum, Lebonon, and Willimantic but to me, these towns are a bit more sleepy.) I like Avon and West Simsbury as they are charming, safe, upscale towns with good schools with close proximity to West Hartford which offers very nice shopping/dining options and offer a quick, easy commute to Aetna in Hartford.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can help you with your mortgage needs.

Jenn, If you are willing to travel up to 30 - 35 minutes (all highway I-91) and would consider areas south of Hartford, I would be happy to assist with your search. If you would like more information on some of the towns, or a sampling of homes, feel free to contact me at the number or e-mail address below.
