I am director of marketing for Rasmus Real Estate group, but I am your age, and have lived in Atlanta for a long time. I know all about Atlanta. If you want to e-mail me, I could give you some info about the different areas. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck!
There are several choices for you to make. It would depend on what price range you want to be in. I would be happy to help you. Please give me a call so I can ask some more question and narrow it down for you.
