How do I find a place to live in Leon?
We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:
"I worked with a realty company that I had found while at a conference. I went on the web to narrow down some choices and then spent a day looking at my short list. It quickly became apparent that I would not feel safe in all neighborhoods as a single female and so I chose the best and safest neighborhood in the city. This was a good decision as I can walk my dog at night with no fear,"
said another person in Leon.
