My family and I are looking to relocate from WI - we have two daughters age 6 & 4. We love the triangle area - particularly Cary / Apex - visited twice in the past year. Getting our girls into a Catholic school is looking to be the deal breaker. All new applicants are wait-listed; putting us into the reassignment situation that the Wake Co public school system is experiencing. Some say look into the Triad area - others say Charlotte is the answer. We are working with relo folks in all three areas to try and gather information. But they send brochures to sell you on the area. I need to hear from folks who work and play in these areas. Are there advantages to one area over another?? I am an psychotherapist, my wife is in human resources. Please offer whatever input, good or bad.
We are looking for a down to earth, community-like neighborhood. We are wanting to escape the roughly 2.5% property taxes we currently pay, and tired of watching businesses leave. WI cannot seem to maintain business because of the high taxes. I also would like to be done with winter - 35 years of it. Gets harder every year to be satisifed with our home state.
Thanks in advance.
