Hi Gallandra,
My wife, Debi, and I have lived in the metro Atlanta area a combined 60+ years. We are very familiar with most areas north of Atlanta, including, but not limited to, Atlanta, Buckhead, Vinings, Dunwoody, Acworth, Dallas, Kennesaw, Marietta, Smyrna, Duluth, Woodstock, Canton, C*mming, Alpharetta, Milton, Johns Creek, Suwanee, Lawrenceville and Roswell.

Besides working in residential resales we also have a property management company that helps owners rent and manage their properties. We know the rental market better than most agents because of this. My wife and I would love to talk further with you to discuss your rental needs.

In order to match you to the best rental area and properties we would need to know more about you. Why do you want to rent in the area? What type of rental home are you looking for....i.e. apartment, townhome, condo, single family home? Are schools important? How about community amenities? Do you like living close to everything...local shopping, hospitals, business areas, entertainment and dining, or do you want to get away from all of that to a more private setting? Will you be moving here with a family or solo? Do you have any pets? What is your monthly budget? All of these things would help us narrow your search down to communities that meet your needs.

I moved to Atlanta a little over two years ago and pretty much knew nothing about Atlanta. I personally found the internet to be my best friend, to at least narrow down the area you may want to live in. I was able to research all the diferent subdivisions before making my decisions. If there is an area that you are thinking about, come back and ask on Trulia and I am sure you will find some great answers. Once you find an area of interest then you can search for an agent to work for you.

The other things to keep in mind is where are you going to be working, how far do you want to travel to get to work. Do you have kids, that you may want to be next to a school.

I would start by making a list of what things are important to you and then go from there. Research the different areas and ask us more questions, that is why we are here. We would love to be able to help you.

If you end up in the North West part of Georgia, then give me a call.

Hi, you could try house sitting (professional term for this is : home manager/home management) for some time until your experience with our city gives you the answers your looking for. Here are some of the benefits of professionally house sitting a home.

1. Pay far less, approximately 50% to 60% less then renting or owning the home you reside in.
2. Always live close to the city to avoid Atlanta's down time regarding traffic in areas outside the city.
3. Experience different neighborhoods to get a "real" feel for your surroundings. Visiting properties doesn't really afford you the opportunity to understand the neighborhood nuances.

I can help you if this interests you. Good luck and I hope you find the home of you desire.
