I would look at houses in the Alpharetta, GA area. I work at NWL and have several colleagues who commute from Alpharetta. The commute ranges from 15-40 minutes depending on the traffic. Alpharetta has pretty good (and new) homes in that price range and is known for good schools.

thanks for the info. What time in the morning do you leave home?

Also, would Roswell be a better location traffic-wise?

East Cobb has also reportedly been popular with relocating folks for Newell Rubbermaid.
