I have lived in the West Boca 33428 zip code for 15 years. I have sold numerous homes in the area and am very familiar with the school systems and the local amenities. The developments in the immediate area have homes that range from the mid-$200's and up.

Hi June:

The western area of Boca Raton has many great neighborhoods and relatively low crime statistics and a very good public school system. You can find lot of data/statistics online as well, but overall the neighborhood is safe.

Keep in mind that opinions are often subjective, and what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another--If you are concerned about crime, your best source of information is the local police department--consider a visit/call and ask all your questions, they'll gladly help. Also visit a neighborhood(s) several times and at different times of day to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached.

...Gated community is safest... lots of them in West Boca
...Go to and put in an address of a property you are interested in. Within 2 weeks you will have an idea of crime rate, and I believe they have archives. You can also google for the police precinct for the property you become interested in... and they will give you a list of recent crimes in the area.

If you would like further guidance, go to and click on red tab on left that says MORE SCHOOL INFO for details about particular schools for the area you choose a property in.

Browse through EXPLORE THE AREA for information on many communities. Also Search the MLS on this site. I can show you any property listed on the MLS... no doubt several at least will fit your criteria.

NOW IS THE BEST TIME EVER TO BUY A PROPERTY IN FLORIDA with prices so low, interest rates very low.

If you would like to see listings, email me your criteria (# bedrooms, price range, pool-yes or no, etc) at and I will be happy to send them to you.

Boca Raton is a wonderful place to live and in which to bring up your children.

Regards and best wishes,

The western area of Boca Raton has many fantastic neighborhoods, relatively low crime statistics and a very good public school system. There are many online sources where you can plug in a specific address and it will give you the crime statistics for that area. I also recommend that you visit the Palm Beach County School District website at for tons of great information.

If I can be of any help identifying specific homes, or developments that will meet the needs of you and your family please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I hope this helps answer your questions and if I can offer anything additional just let me know.

Hi June,
I'd love to give you information on a particular neighborhood.....but I couldn't find a specific neighborhood that you're inquiring about. If you just want info for the zip code of 33428.....most is good, but there are a few areas that are less than great!
Feel free to contact me and we can talk about your family's needs & what would best suit you.
Best of luck.
