A several weeks ago I flew down for a face to face interview. Shortly after the interview I was offered the job at Newell Rubbermaid. I'm starting there this coming Monday!

We cannot wait to make the move.

I will move ahead first and the company will put me in temporary housing. My family of 4 girls, a dog, a cat, 2 goldfishes, and a wife will come down once the house sells. The sign should go up this week. I plan on coming back to Michigan every 3-4 weeks.

The job will be in Sandy Springs. We will continue to research which areas we are focusing on. I will have a good feel how much I can tolerate the commute while I'm down there.

3 areas we will look into: Roswell, East Cobb, and Alpharetta.

We cannot wait to make the move to the area and get settled in.

Just to be clear (and to help you in your new home), Sandy Springs, Roswell, East Cobb, and Alpharetta are considered North Metro Atlanta (western parts of East Cobb could be considered Northwest Metro Atlanta).

Congratulations!

And Roswell, East Cobb, and Alpharetta are great places to live and to look into. Good access to your job in Sandy Springs and great schools.

Selling a home in Michigan in the winter? Good luck with that!

The commute from Alpharetta will be a nightmare, but it's a great place.
If you can get into Dunwoody, go for it. Neither area is cheap.
Roswell has some nice areas, but it's definitely a step down from Alpharetta, in general.

Good luck with your move! Sell your snow blower & sleds too, btw. You won't need any winter gear down here... lol.

Roswell is not a step down from Alpharetta.

Congrats, that's exciting!

The temp housing situation should give you plenty of time to get your feet on the ground and really investigate areas to live.

Check out this relocation guide when you get a chance.

Good luck!

Yeah Roswell is most definately not a step-down from alpharetta, I like the surroundings in Roswell better then Alpharetta because of it's location. Roswell has many great neighborhoods, and it has alot of good older, more settled neighborhoods in my opinion.

And a very cool, village-like downtown area.....

Thanks everyone!

Roswell is similar to where we live now, a couple of rivers, lots of trees and bike paths, and a quiant downtown area. This will be our first choice. Granted, we only spent a few hours there over the summer. I checked it out again several weeks ago.

What's a good time to sell the house? It might be a slow period but there are buyers looking every month of the year.
