Hello, we are a family of 4 planning to relocate to Singapore in Q3 2019. I'd like to seek your recommendations of neighborhoods/communities to stay in. Thanks in advance!

- budget: $4500-5000
- workplace: Downtown
- the size and/or type of property that you are seeking (#bedrooms, on-site facilities etc): 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, renovated HDB or condo
- will you have a car here? No
- proximity to transport required. MRT-subway/buses/the airport/Malay border post (if so, which one): Within 1 km of any MRT station on North South / Downtown / Circle lines
- will you have any accompanying children needing to attend school? If so, age/s? Yes, 12 and 4
- are you looking at private (international/fee-paying, or local schools?): private/international
- will your employer being funding any fees; or will you, 'out of pocket'? Out of pocket
- is remaining within a national curriculum important; if so what nationality are you? No

Nice to have:
- will you need to be able to say walk to the local shops, a library, your doctor, a market, and so on? No

- are you considering bringing any parents/in-laws etc? Do they have specific needs (for example difficulty climbing stairs?) No

Your current home and commute:
- are you already a city dweller? i.e. Are you used to city-centre hustle and bustle, or would you hope for a bit more peace and quiet? Either is fine
- what is the size and type (apartment, house+garden etc) of your current home? 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, condo with backyard, 1200 sqft
- what are any current commute times like? 45 mins

Best to identify the school and workplace and work between the two in terms of distance and MRT line, if you guys aren't driving.
The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made. - Groucho Marx (1890-1977)
