I'm not a realtor but here's what I'd do..Get a map of GA first and foremost. Using a highlighter highlight the areas of interest to you and your family.
Go, look at several different homes that suite your needs. When you get back to your hotel, lay out your map and ask your relator to help even while you are being shown homes to mark the homes on a map. Maybe even, if you let your rep know with plenty of time, they'll pick up a map of just the county for you, mark it for you,making your job easier.
Go back to the houses on your own. One doesn't have to have a key to see how the noise levels are at say prime time traffic, or what about neighbors, stay over a Friday and Saturday night...if you find LOUD neighbors and it's not to you taste,cross that home off your list or move in and be miserable.
Knock on the doors of your neighbors. Ask good questions, about their likes, their dislikes and finally...located your office in regards to your possible home and get out and DRIVE IT, both learning your morning commute to the office and what your drive home will be like...both taken at prime traffic times.
Finally, the best person who decides where to live, is YOU!!! Don't expect everyone else to do the work for you. No one will perceive right from wrong like you yourself! Oh, and to not waste anyone's time, before you arrive to meet your realtor have the crime reports ready as one of the other replies here tells you to get. Your due diligence will pay off and you will be the happiest in a home/area that you picked because you made a knowledgeable decision...on your terms!
