I'll be moving to work in Springfield in 6 weeks. I have no school age children and would like to know a Good area to live with reasonable housing. Would like something away from city proper but not too far away from work. Any replies appreciated.
Also, name of a good real estate agent or agency.

I've sent you a PM with a recommendation.

As for reasonable, that's subjective. However, I've found lots of great properties for prices that I thought no longer existed.

The region I've looked through is immediately south of Springfield. It has easy access to Springfield proper, including the main mall/shopping area, and yet has lots of the day-to-day stuff in the local area. It includes the areas of Nixa and Ozark.

The referal that I sent to you has a good knowledge of these areas. He's local and involved in the community.

Good luck!

If working in the south of Springfield, I would think about Battlefield area, the SW area. If working North of Springfield, I would think about the Willard area or something NE even maybe to Strafford. If you would like any more info just let me know.

I recommend north of Springfield myself. It's far less developed with a lot less traffic. If you live in the southern reaches, you get to deal with daily commuter traffic from Nixa and Ozark, though the homes are nice around there.
I live north of Springfield on 4.3 acres between Highway 13 (where Kansas City Expressway north becomes a freeway northward to Bolivar, etc.). I live almost touching the Ebenezer fire district off Farm Road 145 and 48. It's beautiful, upscale, and you can also drive east and connect to Highway H to get to Springfield if you wish which becomes Glenstone Ave. So it's easy to circle around depending where you want to go in Springfield.
Some of the estates are expensive around where I live and there are some beautiful large homes on gated estates. Most people have at least 3 acres. It's very nice.
I've sent you who I recommend as a realtor as well. She is the only professional I ran across when I bought the home I live in now.
Good luck on your search!

If you can, rent a place for 6 months or so and spend some time looking around for a house and get a feel for the area. There are many great places here.

I am also sending a private message with my recommendation of realtor.

Now you're talking, Bolivar area is great. Polk county has cheaper taxes too. Good luck and enjoy your move here.
