The ideal location might be Fox Glen in Pickerington. Quick access to 33,, about 25 minutes to Downtown Columbus and about an hour to Athens, maybe longer with traffic. I have a nice 5 level split about to come on the market and M/I Homes have several lots and perhaps a couple of Inventory homes that may be available. Prices range from the lower to mid 200's for a pre-owned home and mid 200's to 300+ or - for a new home. Beautiful big lots. M/I rep is Joe Speakman, 614-622-5621.

Our website: www. has a "school report card" link. You can check the schools there. Go to, then click on Ohio Resources, then click on Ohio School District Report Card. That should give you plenty of info about the possible schools you may want to consider. Everyone has opinions about various school districts so its good to compare it to the official report data on achievement. Feel free to email me with any other questions.

Hello - Athens is about 1 1/2 hours SE of Columbus. Pickerington is a suburb that is 17-18 miles east of Columbus. It is a nice community and it would shorten your drive time by 25 minutes or so. I would love to help you, feel free to call me at 614-946-4383.

That's a great question and one that comes up quite frequently. Everyone seems to define "good schools" differently from academics to diversity to extracurricular activity availabily. I'd be happy to discuss your specific needs, feel free to give me a call at 614-778-3918 or send me an email at

Good Afternoon- if your goal is to live in the Columbus Metro area and commute to Athens, I would suggest the Bexley area. It has easy access to route 33 which connects both areas, and the schools are among the best in the state. I would be happy to help you explore the area.

Best Regards,
