Hello Myriam

Welcome to Stamford! I love this area (I may be biased since I live here).

If have not found the perfect place, feel free to reach out. Rentals in Stamford change go quick and the inventory is updated every day.

Additionally, if you have general questions about the area, its schools or anything outside of real estate too, feel free to reach out.

Again, welcome!

Fairfield, New Canaan, Darien, and Greenwich are your best school systems for public education.

Hello, Myriam!

I would first go to to check on demographics for Stamford neighborhoods as Realtors aren't allowed to recommend areas (it's called "steering" and is illegal).

If you are working with an agent, have them tailor your home search to rentals or lease option (rent-to-own) properties. Pick the properties that appeal to you the most and have your agent set up showing appointments for when you'll be in town.

If I can be of any further assistance I am licensed in CT and can be reached via
