Raintree reminds me of River Hills! They must have been built around the same time, possibly by the same developer? I have heard stories about what goes on in River Hills that would make your toes curl.

Great advice for the OP...does not sound "good".

3 houses..sounds like rentals. My original point. Again, does not sound good.

Wow. This thread is ridiculous. I didn't realize how high the bar had been raised to be considered part of "acceptable" society anymore. Apparently, the teachers, firefighters, and university professors I know in this neighborhood are now "low quality" neighbors. You guys should really listen to yourselves.

Thank you.

And most definitely River Hills. Some of the previous posters are knocking a community that they do not reside in and are making remarks that are "glittering generalities" without providing substance to their critisism. If you want to debate the topic....bring it on!

But please make it a seperate thread as it has nothing to do with the OP's request.

Yes, they are rentals but they are nice homes & my tenants are all professionals. Are you somehow implying that people that rent are some sort of second class citizens? My rentals aren't "low income"! I also own a rental on Cramer Mountain (among others). Does that mean it's a sub-standard area in your eyes? I don't know where you live but I'd be willing to bet there are rentals there.

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking this! I read the first few posts in disbelief. I have many friends who live in Raintree and I'm impressed by the neighborhood. It is close to the Arboretum and zoned to nice schools. I recommend that the O.P. take a walk around the area or use Google Street View and see for himself whether Raintree's as shabby as some posters say it is.
