Why not try Kernersville? That way, you can be 15-12 minutes from Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point. You open yourself up to more job opportunities and fun things to do, yet still retain a small town feel. So many deals in the area!

My husband and I are also considering a big move! We are coming from Denver, CO and I've looked everywhere from Kinston (out of the question) to (so far) Hickory and I'm headed down to Charlotte tomorrow. I've been here for 2 weeks and haven't felt "right" about anywhere so far except Hickory. Not sure why. We need a place we can settle down and find a career oriented job. Both of us.
I've looked in the Research Triangle Park area of Cary/Durham but I just don't "feel" it there.

I am entry level Marketing, love grass roots going out meeting people and promoting a product I feel strongly about. We owned a portable storage company that we recently sold in Colorado and I'd like to get back into something like that because it was selling a great service that people could actually use. I am interested in getting into a small business, maybe just starting out (or not) and just going out to other businesses or general public and promote that business.
Hickory/Charlotte is promising for us if anyone has any suggestions. We aren't moving if I can't find a job in the next week or two so I'm under pressure here.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!!

Oh, one really big issue I'm running into is we have 4 dogs and we LOVE our dogs. I'm coming here in part so we can have a big place for them to run and play. They are big dogs and we treat them like our children. They don't chew everything in the house. I've trained them to be well behaved and I would have 10 more if I had the place!! We are clean people and keep a clean house.
Yes, we need to rent for now.

Wendy

Mullin is a very well respected (and big) marketing firm in Winston. They just laid off some people, though, so i don't know how much hiring they're doing right now. from people i know who've worked there, it's an extremely difficult first two years, but after that you're golden, plus "Mullin" on your resume looks great to other area firms.

family-wise, I think you'd really like Winston-Salem over Greensboro. I'm currently in Greensboro but did a couple years' time in Winston, which (to me, anyway) just has a cleaner feel (whatever that means) and is very family-oriented. Granted, that also means a little less to do. You shouldn't have a problem finding something in a nice area that's under 200,000, either.

I would also look in Oak Ridge, Summerfield, and a little further out from Greensboro is Stokesdale. I drove around these three a couple of years ago and I like all three with Summerfield being my favorite.
Try one of the websites that allows comparisons to where you now live and see what fits best. I would recommend a site but it would just get cut. Do a search for best places and see what comes up.

Default advice

I read your information about Greensboro. My daughter and I are coming up at the end of March to look for places to live and for me to get my resumes distributed. I am a teacher and have been following the teacher situation in the Asheville area but not Greensboro or W/S, which I am hearing more about now. I am Ntl. Board Certified so hopefully that will help.

I am looking for a place that is more suburban/rural. Definitely not in the city. She will be in 10th grade and I am looking for a good private school or public school for her as well. She has always been in private school but if the public school system is comparable, I would be willing to check into it further.

The goal date is to be moving to NC on July 1st or within that week. I would like to rent for the 1st year, so I want to be able to move before school starts.

Let me know if you have more information. We will be in the Waynesville area in 3 weeks and staying for a little over a week. I am hope that I will be able to meet a realtor and get a contract on a house within that time.

Thank you.

Default same boat as I am in

I read your information. I am looking to relocate in the beginning of July but am clueless about the W/S area. I have focused on the Asheville/Waynesville area but now want to enlarge my search. Have you had any positive feedback at all? If so, thanks for sharing.
