HELLO.
I am a female nurse in the Case Mgmt profession looking to relocate to Ga. I have two children (only one in high school) the other in colllege. My husband, children and I just returned from visiting the Stockbridge, Marietta, Alpharetta, and Atlanta areas to see which are better areas to reside. I like the Stockbridge area homes, but a little concerned with crime rates there. Didn't like Marietta at all. Alpharetta is nice, but costly homes to rent and Atlanta isn't at all an option to live. Wondering what other areas to research that is close in proximity to the Atlanta area. My husband and I are willing to travel within an hour distance as we are aware traffic is SO terrible there. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I also have been having trouble finding positions (Director level) in these areas. I have been offered potential positions in Southern Ga, but not interested in that area at all. Need help. Want to move by the summer (or sooner if work is found). Looking to rent a home (initially), 4 br, great area, good high school, rent between 1000 - 1500/mo. Thanks for any help.

Hello,

Several options may be worthy of consideration in other burbs. Many employees at Emory, the VA and the CDC commute into Northeast Dekalb from Brookwood, Grayson and Parkview High School clusters in Gwinnett County, all frequently among the better performers. Those areas are also very convenient to Eastside Medical Center in Snellville. You may also be able to find something convenient to Northside Medical Center campus or one of the Gwinnett Medical Centers, all conveniently located within a decent driving distance to schools including Duluth, Peachtree Ridge and North Gwinnett High Schools (Gwinnett) and Roswell (North Fulton). You may be able to find decent rentals in these areas nearer to the top end of your preferred range.

Hope that helps.

My advice to you is:

1) Don't be in a hurry to move to Atlanta, particularly if you have not yet been hired to a job in Georgia.

Unlike the boom years of the 1980's and the 1990's, the job market can be highly-competitive in the Atlanta metropolitan area, even in an economy that has improved markedly from the rock-bottom years of the Great Recession in the late-2000's and early-2010's. If you and/or your husband have not been hired to a job in the Atlanta area, do not even think of moving to Georgia until AFTER you have been hired to a job in the Atlanta area.

2) Good areas (with good schools, lots of amenities and low crime) can be found all over the Atlanta metro region. The key will be finding a good area in which to live that will be convenient to where you and/or your husband will be commuting to and from for work each day. Wait until you know where you and/or your husband will be commuting to for work each day before looking for a good area to move into so that you can attempt to minimize your exposure to Atlanta's often-challenging and congested rush hour commutes.

3) After you find out where in the Atlanta metro area you and/or your husband will be commuting to for work each day, if you still need help in finding a good area to move into, come back here to the City-Data website and post your questions and concerns in the Atlanta forum where your inquiry will get viewed by many more readers than here in the extremely low-traffic Georgia forum.

Just read the following below, respond accordingly and post the answers in a new thread in the Atlanta forum where there is much more online traffic...

Helpful Tip,
For all of those about to move or thinking about moving to the Atlanta metro area, in order for us to better assist you and for you to get more responses please provide us with as much of the following information as possible in your initial post please:

1. Budget
2. House/Condo/Townhome?
3. Employment Status(commute/work from home)
4. Children(public school vs. private)
5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle preference or a mix of the two
6. Easy access to public transit, important or not?
7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood.

These are just a few off the top of my head, feel free to add more.
We wish you the best of luck with your job and housing search and we look forward to hearing from you in the Atlanta forum when you are ready to proceed with your move to Atlanta!

I am following. I am also a Nurse, looking to relocate within the next year or so. Our search has been a little more south, like Warner Robins area ( my husband is a government employee). How is your job search going? I have also been considering exploring a career in Case Management Nursing. I do OB currently. Any luck with the housing search yet?

You might want to PM the original poster because this post hasn't been active in over a month. I will add that two areas that you might want to look at are Newnan and Gainesville, Ga. They both are doing a lot of growing in the medical fields.
