As a realtor, by law I can't tell you the best schools; but I can send you to to do some research. Nice thing about Norfolk State is it's right on 264 with easy access from just about anywhere. Chesapeake and VB are very family oriented with great parks and sports facilities. Stick to neighborhoods with curvy roads instead of grid roads, they're usually subdivisions. Best of luck on your move! ... more

The KEY should be if you are working in the same FIELD or JOB DESCRIPTION. This is normally understood.
If you are having trouble finding a place to rent; find places that are managed by the OWNERS, not some management company: Meet them and explain your situation, be open an honest. You should be Okay.

Good luck and may God bless

This property is not for rent. It is for sale and currently under the contract.
Let me know if you would like to see other homes listed for rent (or for sale) in Gainesville or other area.

Hello Chrissy
Yes, you can find owners that are willing to take section 8
the agent just have to ask the owner before showing the property.
The good thing about all this is that, if the listed property is on the Mayor Listing Company (MLS)
you do not have to pay.
If you need more assistant send me an e-mail to

Anja Howard answered:
Hello Sam,

I would be glad to help you find a home for rent in Virginia Beach. I live here and work here so I know how to fit a client with what they are looking for. Virginia Beach is not a small area so it is best to narrow it down..
What is a comfortable rent for you?
What kind of credit history do you have?
Do you have pets?
When do you want to move?
What is your dream home?
Do you have a certain school district in mind?
Do you prefer to be close to your work/recreation?

Let me know how I can help you and let's start finding you a home!

Best wishes,

Anja Howard

Luisa Rodriguez answered:
I live in Port Potomac which is in 22191. It is a nice community with a indoor/outdoor pool, tennis courts, gym, etc. I really enjoy living here and I don't feel unsafe. I think like any area, there will always be some nice areas and some not so nice areas, but every person has a different definition of what that is. I would suggest to take a drive out and view different communities and see if there are any you like. These areas are definitely improving for the better. For example, they just built a new Wegman's which I think falls in the 22191 zip code and next to it they are building upscale shops. In addition, there are a lot of newer upscale communities. Even in the older neighborhoods such as Dale City, low prices have sparked a lot investors to snatch some of these properties which are being renovated--which slowly, I think is changing the face of some of these older neighborhoods. ... more

Carl D. Pautlitz, CCIM MBA answered:
Good question. This is a very simple question that would require a full length conversation. Why are you looking in Williamsburg? Are you relocating to the area? How long do you expect to live here? Do you plan to work in the area or commute to larger metropolitan areas like Virginia Beach, Norfolk, or Richmond? What is your motive for the question?

Historically our area has been somewhat sheltered by drastic movements up and down in prices. We have experienced a pull back in pricing just as the national trends have, but as the National Association of Realtors are saying, "Now is the best time to buy".

Our area is a great place to live because of the historical nature of Williamsburg and the surrounding communities. The College of William & Mary offers a great venue for social and sporting events. Strolling down Duke of Gloucester Street during a warm Spring day or seeing the natural decorations during the Christmas season offers a great way to enjoy our communities.

I moved here from California 6 years ago. While I do miss the vibrancy of living in a large city, when I need my fix for larger city life, Richmond is an hour's drive or Washington, D.C. is about 2.5 hours away. I love the idea of spending my family time in this wonderful community.
