Congrats on relocating and bravo for being a working mother of two wee ones! I have two myself 2 yrs. apart (ages 4 and 6) and could imagine adding a move into the mix could be challenging. I'd love to meet with you to get to better know you/your needs in effort to narrow the search further (as Charlotte is pretty well spread out). Please give me a call 704/290-7374 at your convenience and I can do my best fitting you with a great family friendly location close to a great school of your choice.
Also, if you need help selling your existing home, Coldwell Banker has the best relocation department to alleviate that burden as well. I would also be able to help you in screening an agent with expert knowledge of that market.
In any event, I wish you well and look forward to your call.

I can recommend the Overlook neighborhood in northwest Charlotte. It's a great subdivision with lots of trees, playground, pool, tennis courts, soccer field and boat landing (Mountain Island Lake). Overlook won an award from Sierra Club abpout 10 years ago for preserving so much of the foliage in the development. There are several charter schools that the neighborhood kids use - Lake Norman Charter School, Mountain Island Charter School and a private Christian school - Mountain Island Day School.
Overlook has Halloween parties, Holiday parties, Easter Egg hunts, a No 1 swim team, and lots of sidewalks for riding bikes.
BYW, the commute to downtown Charlotte is about 20 minutes during rush hour when school is in session. The area also has a Harris Teeter, drug store and cleaners close by as well as fast food and sit down restaurants. NorthLake Mall is 10 minutes away, along with Lowes and PetSmart, Best Buy and Office Max.
I have lived in this development for 15 years and every day I'm thankful I moved here.
Just across the NC/SC border is the hidden gem of Fort Mill SC. Check out this site http://www.baxtervillage.com. It is a Master Planned community. There are quite a few other great neighborhoods in Fort Mill as well. We have award winning schools and an added bonus of lower taxes here in SC! Yet is is a short commute to Charlotte. My husband and 3 children relocated from the north 14 years ago to Fort Mill. It was the best decision we ever made.
If you would like more information, please feel free to contact us.
Have a great day!

If you're considering private, charter or magnet school, South Charlotte is a great area for this.
When it comes to great neighborhoods, it really depends on what price point you're in. They're all over Charlotte, so it really depends on the type of lifestyle you live and what you consider a "good neighborhood".
E-mail or call me at your convenience as I'd love to help you with your relocation down here.
WELCOME TO CHARLOTTE!!!
I hope to hear from you soon.
If I can be of any assistance to you in your search, please feel free to call or email me and I'd be happy to guide you.

Thank you for your question, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Making a move to another area of the country is always a big decision, and especially with two little ones. You have a lot of options. Your preferences regarding price range, age and type of home, and especially commute time will impact choices of communities. Keep in mind, you'll be driving or possibly catcing the light rail if that interests you. it runs from Pineville in South Charlotte to uptown. Eventually the plan is to have it run from UNC-Charlotte in North Charlotte (University City) area to uptown but that may be a ways off. There is a wonderful charter school in Huntersville area of northern Mecklenburg County that many area students attend. Some of your neighborhoods: Highland Creek, Davis Lake, Skybrook, Birkdale, the list goes on.
Always happy to speak further with you.
there are many choices for you in good schools in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Sysytem. You cna choose to go toward the southside of Charlotte or you can go toward the Northern Side of Charlotte into Huntersville area.
I made the move six years ago with my familty from Connecticut. I am very happy with my descision and the schools here were better than i anticipated when I arrived. I found very helpful was http://www.ncreportcards.org it is a great website to look at that evaluates schools based on perfomrance and how that school compares against other schools in the distrcit, and state.
Part of where you look will also be dependent on what you are looking for in a house...There are parts of Charlotte that are older and more like a New England own and other parts of Charlotte that are newer and more modern....Prices also vary within neighborhoods in the charlotte area.
If you would like some help in locating a house or additional information about the area please feel free to either e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call em at 704-519-7895.

We moved to Charlotte ~ 23 yrs ago with 3 young children; our children went to Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools and we have been very pleased. SE Charlotte is a great area for schools and to raise a family. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg site is http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/.
