Hi everyone, I am considering my first commercial real estate deal and as you may have guessed its in Conyers GA. If you are local to Conyers and can shed some light on that area ( economy - the good ,the bad etc ) it would be a great help to me. Much thanks in advance, Pete .

I live next door to Conyers in Covington and Conyers was great in my experiences as I do a lot of shopping there but a lot of people have been complaining about their new Board of Commisioner leader Richard Oden a lot of them call him King because it's his way or the highway, he even goes so far as to call himself county CEO , even though DeKalb is the only county legally able to have a county CEO, I can sum it up like this people are moving out and people are moving in, with it being next door to DeKalb a lot of middle class blacks are moving in and a lot of middle class whites are dropping bricks in their pants and moving out more than likely based on the stereo type that is imprinted in America's mind about blacks but I can tell you that the blacks that I know in Conyers want what most American's want a good home, safety a good education so moving because blacks move in is being ignorant and subliminally racist, have you ever heard of any blacks or hispanics moving out of a neighborhood if a white person moves in, if you don't bother anyone they won't bother you and this isn't counting the few people that everyone thinks represents a certain race.

Two words sum up Conyers: white trash. Who in their right mind would subject themselves to such a simmering cesspool?

PT 3000, pretty much hit it on the head.

I've lived here for 7 years now.

Its turning into a mostly middle class black county. I guess, we will see the full stats when the Census information comes out but the whites are slowly leaving for Newton, Morgan and other surrounding counties.


You have Stonecrest Mall to the west for additional shopping opportunites.

It's pretty quiet out here. Haven't had any issues with crime etc etc. RCSO and the court system dont play out here.

Traffic can be real bad at times due to the population...

Hey PT3000, check the mug shots in the Rockdale Citizen weekly. Check the violent crime perps in the County. They are black. Yes, maybe only a small percentage of the black population is responsible but they still commit the OVERWHELMING amount of violent crime.

Having lived here since the 70's I can tell you never had to worry about being a victim of crime as I do now......never even thought about it.

Rockdale is the 'hood, like it or not......and it's getting worse.
