What Makes Schoolsparrow Unique?


Every family is different, so whether you are looking for a high school with a strong selection of AP classes, a middle school with a substantial music program that supports violin, or an elementary school that is renowned for its special education program; our partner agents can help you navigate to the school and property that meets your needs. Schoolsparrow can connect you with licensed Realtors in your target market who are knowledgeable about public schools and their programs. We give you the power to uncover the right schools with homes that fit your budget, and our unique Home + School Search is a great place to start.

Our Story


Schoolsparrow was created in early 2012 when the owner of the company, Tom Brown, was looking for a home for his family in Chicago with school attendance boundaries being the critical factor. At the time, not only was it hard to conduct a search by school boundary, but also the lack of useable data on schools was frustrating. Back then, people had to rely on word of mouth to discover target schools for their children. Tom built Schoolsparrow to make it easy to conduct a School + Home search in Chicago by bringing school boundaries, school performance, and the MLS to allow unique school-based real estate searches. The popularity of the site in Chicago has resulted in the concept expanding to several markets across the nation. Schoolsparrow and our agents have more power than most realtors to uncover the best public schools that fit your needs and your budget.
