It’s true! Now we have many choices in Alpharetta and Roswell to live in an “uptown” neighborhood!

You may have to compromise on square footage, but you’ll be happier if your new neighborhood offers everything you want in an urban environment. Think about features that are most important to you and your family.

Walkability. Is there a bike path or sidewalk nearby? Can you walk the dog or take the baby for a stroll safely? Look for lots of street lighting and foot traffic. How close is the nearest coffee shop?

Transportation and commute time. How far away is your route to work? Is there a garage you can use or do you need to buy a parking space? How long will you spend in the car for your daily commute to work?

Parks and community centers. You may have a small garden or yard, but you’ll also enjoy the beauty that parks and walking trails offer. The local community centers offer swimming, yoga, and activities for the kids.

Shopping, restaurants, and services. You want grocery shopping, dropping clothes at the dry cleaners, and getting your car serviced to be handy. It’s also fun to get out to the local pub, see a movie or walk to dinner.

Considering the neighborhood will make leaving and coming home much more pleasant. We know what’s “out there” … give us a call!
