Relocating to Charlotte NC

Relocating to Charlotte, NC will be the best decision you make.  Charlotte has a lot of buyers relocating to the area because of the city's large banking presence.  Charlotte is the 2nd largest banking center (NYC being #1) and though the banks have been struggling, we are still seeing people being relocated to Charlotte to work for Wells Fargo or GMAC.  Most of the buyers are completely new to Charlotte and need the expert advise of a local real estate agent. 

In a city that offers as much as Charlotte, it is easy to overwhelm the buyers with all the different areas and attractions.  I like to give my clients a one hour tour of the city and surrounding areas.  This is just long enough to drive them through the different areas and neighborhoods so that they can get a feel for the different sides of Charlotte.  They will want to explore the city on their own and will more than likely stumble across something that they will want me to explain to them.

The streets in Charlotte can be a little confusing for people new to the city.  The streets are designed like a bicycle wheel and spokes instead of the more traditional grid system.  Once you live here and understand how the different roads connect, you will see how much better the traffic flows with a wheel and spoke design.

Mecklenburg County has great public schools and a rapidly growing public transportation system.  If you want to receive more information about Charlotte please call me and ask for a relocation packet.  I can mail you all of the information about the city and the housing market so that you will be more educated when you are ready to buy.
