Hello all, pardon me if I am posting a thread that already has answers for this, but... i'll dive right in.

I'm a sales rep moving to Atlanta from Dallas, TX in January. I need to find something 2BR-ish, and we dont want to live in an apartment complex, we dont want to live in suburbia hell. I dont care about traffic, since all I did was sit in traffic in DFW/Houston/S.A. and Austin, TX. I am looking for a realtor who is similar(if possible)to the people we used in Dallas. Here is the URL: {Moderator Removed} this type of URL not allowed. I dont know much about Atlanta, except that I have visited for concerts and such, so, I dont know the neighborhoods, but I heard Virginia Highlands is good, as well as Decatur.

I would sincerely appreciate any help and advice. Thanks for your time.

Default Relocating-looking for a realtor

Hi Morgan-

The Virginia Highlands area is a good choice when first coming to Atlanta. You are basically a minute outside of the "city" but in the midst of everything you need culturally, etc. Also, this area of town has a great feel with trees, sidewalks, etc. Decatur is a similar area and the prices will be a bit less but you are farther from everything. It will come down to what you are looking to pay for something.

You had mentioned you were looking for a realtor similar to the one you used before....I am not sure what kind of person you are looking for but I would be happy to help you myself as I am a buyer's here in Atl. and VA Highlands is an area I know well.

You can contact me directly is you like via my info. I wish you well in your move...welcome in advance to Atlanta!

What part of Dallas did you live in? Or if you didn't like where you were, what part of Dallas did you like and I will suggest a part of Atlanta that is similar, I know both cities pretty well.

Here's information on the City of Decatur. City of Decatur, GA It is 4 square miles in size and has it's own school system that is highly regarded. Decatur City has been described as where "Berkley meets Mayberry".

Here is the link for Virginia Highlands. Virginia Highland :: Atlanta, Georgia It is the neighborhood next to the one I live in, Inman Park. www.inmanpark.org

Good luck and welcome!
