It is such a small word. I am form Raleigh, NC too. Welcome to Alpharetta.
You need to hire a qualified real estate agent offering relocation services. I know agents charge around $400 - $1500 depending on your needs and budget.
Call me if you need help finding an agent to help you.

As a Property Manager/Land Lord/Owner of many rental properties, what I can tell you is this --> My Insurance Company clearly state that if I rent one of my rental homes and the tenant has , what they classify as a ATTACK DOG, and they do send out Insurance agents, unannounced to inspect the property, my Policy will be be Dropped in a Heart Beat.
So I do reject rental applications if the renter has this type of Dog. I am a Dog Lover my self, but it is all about Business.
Hope this helps.
