Hi Ambra,

As an agent, I'm not legally allowed to answer any of those questions.

However, if you want to have a 30 minute commute by car to Fort Myers, then I wouldn't go out any farther than a radius of Springfield, Huntington, Falls Church, Ballston or Vienna. Of course you could go into DC, but that would be more of an urban setting, which doesn't tend to be kid friendly unless you get into the northern, more suburban areas. If you went into Maryland and wanted to commute via Metro, I'd look to Silver Spring, Chevy Chase or Bethesda to keep it down to 30 minutes.

You don't mention whether you want a house, townhouse or if a condo would be ok. So, you may need to expand that 30 minute commute. The average commute time for Washington, DC is 33 minutes, but that's for people who live AND work in DC. I used to live in Alexandria and drove 10 miles from Duke Street, up I-395 to get to work on Capitol Hill and it never took me less than 1 hour to get to work.

I have a great agent who works in the Weston area. I would love to help you connect with her. She can guide you through the process and I'm certain she can meet your housing requirements. She knows the area very well and has experience finding the right fit.

Jose Guzman answered:
For some Miami Beach is a wonderful place to live, beaches, party, restaurants, but others think it'is too noisy, too many tourists, etc. I always suggest to rent for a year or less to see how is it and
then make your own judgement.

marc jablon, new harbor realty answered:
A certain level of quiet is typically expected after 11 pm in residential areas. However, in downtown areas, especially where there are restaurants and nightclubs, the noise levels are typically higher until around 1 AM. In order to check the area of your Fort Lauderdale home, you may want to ask the police department if there are specific ordinances for various areas of the city.
