Welcome to the Q & A column where MRED brokers, agents and appraisers get answers to their questions, right from the horse's mouth, every Tuesday.
Do you have a great question for inclusion in next Tuesday's Ask MrEd? Send your questions to askmred@MREDLLC.com. Don't worry, we'll supply the answers. We will choose one question to include every week and that person will receive a couple of cups of coffee on us, i.e. a $25 Starbucks Gift Card (enough for some oats on the side). And every month we will choose a "Best Question of the Month" winner. Not only will that person get some attention in this email but MRED will come out to his or her office's next staff meeting and serve coffee and donuts on MRED. Don't worry, we'll pony up!
Congratulations to this week's winner, Mihaela Chiderov of RPM Real Estate in Des Plaines! A $25 Starbucks Gift Card is on the way to you. Welcome to the Winner's Circle! Here's the winning question:
Question: "A lot of my clients want to search for a home by school district and often have questions about school district ratings. Is there an easy way to search by school district? How can I find out school ratings?"
Answer: To search by school district, click on "Add/Remove Fields" and select your choice of Elementary, Middle or High School district numbers. Move these to the right hand panel and click "OK". Enter the School District number(s) that fit your clients' needs and click "View Results".
To find the School Ratings, there are two resources within connectMLS, Find and MLS Data Co-op, that provide information, and both are located under Additional Information.
Find (Schools & Community Link):
In MLS Data Co-op, there is a link to a report for each school:
Another great resource is MRED's City Info Pages which will give you the phone number and website of the school district to find out more information.
