Irvine has some of the best schools in the country, as well as some of the best planned neighborhoods for you and your family. Depending on your needs there are a few sub-divisions in Irvine that I would highly recommended if you have younger children. Neighborhoods such as university park are fantastic for families with children as the schools are withing walking distance and has many parks and walkways to enjoy the outdoors

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

It depends on what you are considering the best. If you are looking for the best area for schools or the best area for least crime then the first thing I would check is the school reports for the areas as well as the crime reports for the areas you are interested in. Unfortenately by law we cannot give that advice of what is deemed to be the best, we can only recommend these reports for you to decide on. ... more

First, I would do a little online research to help you decide on an area to move. Once that decision has been made, I would contact a relocation agent in that area. An agent specializing in relocation services can be a huge help. They are trained to be an advocate in all aspects of your move. Moving to a new area is sometimes an overwhelming experience, and a relocation expert can reduce your confusion, get your feet on the ground, and help you move ahead quickly and confidently. ... more

Hi Angielee,

Anything in close walk to any beaches in the entire country is always a good to a best neighborhood to be in for they are by far the #1 locations every one wants (or, at least, dreams to one day live on a beach). Remember the old saying: "Location, location, location!).

That being said, if your husband is to work in Fort Lauderdale, then, Fort Lauderdale's "east-side" (along the beach) will be where to look (if your husband will work north Fort Lauderdale, then you can also consider south Pompano Beach, and so on). But, if you don't mind long commuting drives, then, Delray Beach (about 25 miles away) or South Beach (also 25 miles away) are also great areas to live.

However, Fort Lauderdale is really a small town with a big, BIG attitude loaded with tons of civic activities, theaters, zillion of restaurants, exciting night life, GREAT SCHOOLD (public or private) and a huge International Airport only 15 minutes drive to. If you get bored living in Fort Lauderdale, don't blame Ft Lauderdale ;-)

For your budget of "...up to $2,000/month..." it should not be difficult to get you in a condo (not a house) within a short walking distance to the beach on a yearly lease. If you want a house, you will need to be in-land within 10-15 minutes drive to the beach.

Welcome to Fort Lauderdale!

To find a rental you can contact a company that handles long term rentals. I will be happy to supply you with a couple if you like or you can go on line and find them.
As for finding work that may be a little more difficult but there are plenty of job opportunities especailly this time of the year when the tourist season is about to start. Guess it just depends on your qualifications and the type work you have interest in.
Feel free to give me a call if you have questions about real estate in the area.

Michael Cheng answered:
Any new environment increases the amount of cognitive effort necessary to adapt. However, not everybody responds with stress. Some people really enjoy the novelty of new places, things, and jobs. So, there's no way to categorically say that a new environment would always interrupt transition to a new job. Maybe it does and maybe it doesn't. In that case, there's no value in the answer to such a question. ... more

Sure, they must provide some value to the homebuyer. Otherwise, why would anybody pay for their service?

The partnership probably wouldn't benefit the corporation, since it's a large net expense. But, it could benefit the employees.

Jaime, I have answered a couple of your questions already, but you asked them as a buyer from Pittsburgh. Are you from Pittsburgh looking to relocate, or are you a Realtor in San Marcos?

Kenner is a suburb of New Orleans, it is a 15 minute drive from the city and has shopping (malls, retail, discount, and boutique), a new state of the art movie theatre completing construction, wonderful parks and recreation throughout, and I just happen to have a 3 bedroom home available for rent (freshly painted, newer appliances, tremendous backyard with deck and workshop, and an open floor plan). It is listed for $1100 and is down the street from a high performing elementary school. Call or email me to discuss further. Will send you a link with property info, demographics, and an overview of the area. Talk soon, Amy ... more
