Hey Ya'll, I finally can say that to people who know what it means again! I interviewed for a job in the northeastern part of the state. My territory goes from Greenville to the coast and up to the VA border. My wife and I are originally from the south - Georiga and Florida(raised on the beach and later on moved to North Central FL) so we are very excited about possibly moving back to a way of life we feel more familiar with. Currently we live in NW PA and it has been a tough experience for us all - 14 hours from family (Atlanta), we are southern so we are looked down upon, bad food, snow and more snow.etc..can't wait to get out! My question is that I have read a great deal of posts on this board and it looks like Greenville may be the place to be?...New Bern looked good but it is a little south of my Sales District...Any other towns of a similiar nature? .....Where is a good area for a family with children ages 2 and 6? We don't want to spend more than $260,000 on a house. If Greenville is indeed the best place to be, what schools or school district would be a good choice?...I will say one thing about the north...the schools here in PA are pretty good but that is about the only thing good I can think of....sorry if I sound negative but this has not been a good experience for my family and I want to make sure we find a place with good schools, family events/neighbors and FRIENDLY folks!

Thank you. I read a lot of reviews about Wahl Coates and they all were good. It seemed that most of the new development was south of the city with Wintergreen, Hope, and DJ Conley listed as schools. Can't really tell much until I have a weekend to get down there and look around. I also noticed on the real estate listings a great amount of difference in taxes....some were $3000 per year and others right next door were $1700 per year...must relate to sewer vs septic?
