We are moving from Tampa to Charlotte this summer. We've made quite a few trips and have narrowed areas down to Waxhaw/Marvin, Weddington, Fort Mill. My husband and I both work from home so commute is not an issue; schools are most important, as we have one child entering HS and one entering MS in the fall 2015.

I am really hoping to find a realtor who can point us in the direction of possible neighborhoods that would fit our needs/wants. We will be there this weekend and although I have an idea of what to drive by, I am sure there are areas I don't even know about that could be a good match for us.

Price range in $400000-$550000. Looking for a larger lot, wooded, private....in a desirable neighborhood on the newer side. I run (a lot) and would love to be able to run right outside my front door, or maybe have a nearby area for longer runs. I see that many neighborhoods say they have walking trails, but I am not sure how many miles or what this means exactly.

We do not want to live in country club community or in area with much more expensive homes.

Anyway, can anyone recommend a good realtor for this area and price range, (preferably female as I will be making some trips alone and am more comfortable with a female)?

Thank you for reading.

Many, many, many cheaper homes in Union County than what you're looking to pay. I live in a neighborhood in the low $200's in UC with a 40 acre private park and 2 running streams with miles of running trails. Don't pay that much unless you just want to spend the money!

I'd be happy to pay less if we can find what we are looking for! What is the name of your neighborhood? It sounds like one I should look at.

You will need to find one licensed in each or both states.

Springfield in Fort Mill would be a great fit for your price range and what you're looking for. The Anne Springs Close Greenway is across the street from the neighborhood. The neighborhood has larger lots and a good variety to choose from. You'd be down the street from the middle school and across the street from the High School.

I'm not currently in active brokerage but am a member of a local network and would be happy to refer you to one of the best in those areas. Send me a pm if you're interested.

I recommend Debbie Sue Taylor, she is a great realtor and she is licensed on both NC/SC. I bought/sold 3 houses with her and she is really knowledgeable and well connected. She responds to you quickly too.

Sorry but if your moving to UC for schools, please know that you buy a house - not into the school district. We went through an ugly redistricting last year and they do so about every 3yrs..no one seems "safe"...
