Considering a transfer from NJ to MD. Office would be located in Rockville but we need to find something that is not ridiculously expensive, has good schools and is an ok commute to Rockville. We've looked into Frederick which seems nice and Mt. Airy also. Please let me know what you know and if there are other options.
Thank you

Frederick is a very common area to live and commute towards DC, and Rockville is right along that path! Traffic isn't fun, we are the worst in the nation during rush hour, but you have many backroads and it's not *too* far from Frederick. From Mt. Airy, you'd have to get from I70-270 to Rockville so that may take a bit more time.
If you look at Urbana, you are about 8-10 minutes closer to Rockville, very easy access to I270 and it has a great school. Middletown is another option if you want a smaller town feel and is a bit cheaper than Urbana, but is further west.
When you can, go onto Wikipedia and look at some of the stats, go to Google Maps and see where the towns are relative to your office, that may help you figure out where you want to be!
