Disclosure: As a real estate agent, I’m required to abide by the Fair Housing Act and the REALTORS® Code of Ethics. Because of this, I will not be offering any personal opinions (positive or negative) on schools or school districts. This is to prevent steering a potential buyer to certain neighborhoods or communities.
