I am one of the many workers that are being relocated to the Alpharetta area. I have visited Atlanta only once and all we did was go to the aquarium! Need help on where to live.

1. Lease - maximum 1300 monthly ( a little flex for a GREAT spot)
2. house or townhouse preferably but a nice apt comm. is ok
3. as close as possible to the Verizon center in Alpharetta
4. My son is 9 and is Autistic so looking for a GREAT school
5. prefer a family oriented area, quiet location, away from too much hustle and bustle is my preference.

any help is appreciated. I dont have any family there so I will prefer to keep school, home and work all in the same proximity!

Try concentrating your search on Webb Bridge Rd. There is at least one AMLI complex there, and several townhouse communities. That would give you a very easy commute. There is an elementary school on the same street, but you would have to check the boundaries depending on where you ended up.

Schools in Alpharetta are typically excellent, and there is a lot of autism awareness, although I can't provide personal information. Milton high school students just started a club pairing themselves with autistic classmates to help make them feel a part of the activities and less isolated.

Welcome to GA!

Public schools in Alpharetta are pretty decent, not sure about special needs kids as much, but all of North Fulton (Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Roswell and Milton) are good. I would recommend living with in 5-8 miles of my job given how difficult the traffic is in and around Alpharetta.

Good luck with your move.

where in Alpharetta will you be working? We moved here 6 months ago... it's very nice here but it's huge... so make sure you are physically close to work /school, don't go by the miles because when traffic is at a standstill 1 mile can take forever!

And once you get here you should have no problem learning the ins and outs of the area. Most of your coworkers are transplants themselves!

Check out eastern Cherokee County. Single-family rental homes are very reasonable, it's beautiful (lots of horse farms and rolling hills) and it's an easy drive to Alpharetta. The Hickory Flat area of Canton is one place to start.
