I'm pretty unfamiliar with the area to be honest but we are moving next month to Overland Park from Southern California (like you, leaving "paradise" ha ha ha) I and the kids visited at the end of March and we bought a house. Husband has a job in Olathe and most of his colleagues told him to make sure to be in Blue Valley school district. Upon research, I don't think that is essential but we did choose to follow that advise. One thing I was pretty shocked about was how close houses are together in suburbia... but I guess that's a decision people have to make. In terms of finding jobs I would at least have ONE lined up before moving and probably suggest renting until both of you have jobs so you know where to look for a house. We based our move only on my husbands job as I may/may not go back to work. Best of luck in your decision!
