Just wanted to know if anyone out there knew of any integrated suburbs around Charlotte. I'm african american and was looking at the ballantyne area. I'm single so schools don't matter now. But I am intrested in having a pretty integrated community, given the fact that i'm from the north. I make ove $60,000 a year, so money is'nt an issue.

I have yet to see many non-integrated suburban areas around Charlotte. The expensive subdivisions that would be almost all white where I moved from have multiple races in them, along with most other places that I have seen so far. Recently while driving around exploring and looking at homes I talked to a nice african american couple living on a $700k+ street in The Palisades, and also a nice mexican couple moving in to about a $225k new house near Pineville.

I have already relocated to Charlotte. I have been here for 3 weeks. I previously lived in MD/DC, Va Beach area, and SoFl. In my opinion, I found that the Mallard Creek area is pretty integrated. That area appears to have a diverse group of people. Everyone has been very friendly towards me and my family. I have seen many interracial couples, AA, Latinos, Indians, and other groups. The areas that I have searched are very family oriented. Check out the neighborhoods Lexington, Fountaingrove, Highland Creek, Davis Lake etc.
I'm sure there are other areas of Charlotte. I'm still exploring. I have to say my experience has been positive.


If you have any direct questions, you can PM and I'll give you my honest opinion.

Yes I get kind of concerned about a good mix of people in my neighborhood, childs school and just the daily things we will do in NC. Being from NYC the biggest melting pot, it is a concern, but it may just me my own hang up !

Have you looked into SW Charlotte (Steele Creek area)...according to regional realtor maps that would be in area 7. Good luck with your search!
