Moving to Leipzig in May

Hi everyone! My husband, daughter, and I are moving to Leipzig in May. We're coming over in a few weeks to hopefully line up an apartment, check into schools, etc. We have no experience living in Germany so we're learning as much as we can. Would love any advice you could offer about housing as we're reading some differing information.

Who pays realtor's fee--the renter or homeowner?

Any areas you'd avoid renting in Leipzig?

Any success getting international students (our daughter is 5) into German schools?

Do you know of any English speaking realtors? I have zero German language knowledge and my husband's German is decent.

Anything else you feel like we should know/you wish you'd known while apartment-hunting?

Thanks in advance!
